California is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Salinas wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, we specialize in animals in the attic, which have broken into the house and almost always have a nest of baby animals. It is necessary to perform correct preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. Some Salinas animals frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.

County Animal ServicesDOG or CAT: If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Monterey County Animal Control for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, lost pets, and more. If you have a wildlife problem, you can try calling the Monterey County animal control, and see what they have to say, but they will certainly not help you with a complex wildlife problem such as critters in your attic. They are a free government agency that helps with dog and cat issues only.

Salinas Wildlife Tip:
What's Behind Squirrels And The Peppermint Myth - If you have discovered an infestation of squirrels in your house - in the attic or walls, or in your yard, no doubt you are trying to find the best way to get rid of them. Whilst squirrels are often interesting to watch and cute to look at they are in fact a dangerous pest to have in and around your home - they are extremely destructive, intelligent and inquisitive. Once you start looking around and perhaps asking for advice you will hear all kinds of solutions for your squirrel problem - high tech solutions, home remedies, smelly stuff, noisy stuff - it seems as if people have tried them all.

Unfortunately, most of these remedies do not work. The current cure-all for squirrels and many other pests apparently, is peppermint oil or leaves. Spreading this around the area of infestation is supposed to drive all manner of critters away not just squirrels. Evidently, the smell of peppermint is guaranteed to drive these animals far away from your home. The truth of the matter is that home remedies do not work; in fact, most of the methods you hear and read about to deal with a squirrel problem do not work. The only guaranteed method to evict squirrels is to trap and kill or trap and remove.

Salinas, CA Animal Control News Clip:
Animal Services - Salinas residents oppose dog law

The bill was introduced by Sen. Jackie Speier, D-Hillsborough, who said citizens have a right to try a referendum effort, but she believes there is overwhelming public support for the law. Monterey County animal services in Salinas, California, declined to comment on the matter, as did Santa Cruz Animal Control.

"The people who supported SB861 were many of the animal rights movement leaders," she said. "Their goal is my goal. We don't want unwanted animals to be put down, and the vast majority of dogs in animal shelters are given up because of concern about aggressive behavior." Animal and carcass removal services in Monterey County is dedicated to helping California and Salinas.

But Crapp said the issue is bad owners, not bad dogs. "Bad owners have German shepherds, they have pit bulls, and they have cocker spaniels," she said. "The dogs are dogs." Monterey County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with California wildlife problems, such as those in Watsonville or Marina or anywhere in the Monterey Bay area.

Pests - If you can't beat 'em, confuse 'em

These are fuzzy white insects that are found on the tops and bottoms of leaves. Termite Man said they suck sap like crazy and drip their loads over everything. Termite Man said for hackberry or normal aphids, one way to get rid of them is to apply a systemic insecticide called Merit. There are many types of insects and animals in Salinas, and other California cities, but not all of them are pests after all.

Systemic means you apply at the extermination roots and the tree absorbs the material up into the trunk and branches. Merit works against all sorts of sucking insects, and has been used by the county agricultural commissioner to fight the glassy winged sharpshooter. Most local owners of pest control companies in Salinas, California weren't sure what to make of all this. The Monterey County Pest Control board could not be reached for comment.

Asked if there are beneficial insects that could be accidentally harmed by the extermination chemical, Termite Man said the only beneficial insects that suck are those that suck the blood out of other insects, not trees. As with anything applied in the yard, it's important to read the instructions and follow them. Salinas pest control is an important part of the local economy, but only a few California companies deal with wild animals.
