Santa Clara County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Can Anything Be Done About Rodent In Ceiling - When you hear the sound of scrambling and scampering in your ceiling, you may well wonder what can be causing the noise. It is quite likely that you have rodents in your ceiling - and if you have rodents in the ceiling, you probably have them in the attic. Unfortunately, because rodents are sociable creatures and like to live in groups, you will have a number of rodents in your home. Once they have found access to your attic it is an easy step for them into the ceiling space - any tiny hole or space between floorboards for example, presents no challenge to an inquisitive and adventurous rodent.
The only guaranteed method of getting rid of rodents from your ceiling and your attic is to use traps to catch them all and then release them far away. Using traps may take a couple of weeks and will require some detective work on your part - but is the only proven method of eliminating rodents from your home. Setting traps at the favored entryway used by your unwanted visitors and taking careful steps to seal all the gaps, holes, cracks, nooks and crannies into your home will ensure your home remains rodent free.

Wildlife - Nature in the City of Sunnyvale
In a city of transients, the abundant quails of 20 years ago are ancient history. Now the best place to see quails is a patch of shrubbery near the Presidio Golf Course called Quail Commons that Squirrel and Snake Man and The Opossum Guy helped restore. (The project is a collaboration between the Presidio Trust, the National Park Service and the Audubon Society -- the group Squirrel and Snake Man credits with first educating him about the city's birds.) California has an abundance of wildlife, and Sunnyvale is no exception.
It's no surprise that Squirrel and Snake Man, The Opossum Guy and other people like them in the urban naturalist scene here grew up in the Bay Area. To them, quails aren't ancient history -- they're part of their own story, as close and precious as childhood. Although several species of wildlife roam Sunnyvale, only a few, such as raccoons and squirrels, are considered pest wildlife.
"I saw the last of the sand dunes get infilled at Giannini Middle School," says The Opossum Guy. "It was the last remnant intact dune system in the Sunset, in all of western Sunnyvale. All the punks used to ride their dirt bikes there and watch the brush rabbits run for their lives, you know?" Remember to treat the wild animals of Sunnyvale, California, with respect.
"Then St. Ignatius had to have a football field and a parking lot," he continues, "and people didn't know what they were losing. Don't let anybody tell you a sand dune's dead: There was a wonderful beautiful starkness to them, and they were teeming with life."
Pest Chewer flies discovered in Sunnyvale
``Certainly, we are concerned. Corn chewing pest fly is the single most destructive fruit pest that threatens agriculture,'' said Kevin The Termite and Spider Man, deputy agricultural commissioner for Sunnyvale County. The Sunnyvale County Pest Control board could not be reached for comment.
A quarantine, which is expected to happen in the next few days, would prevent homegrown fruit and vegetables from leaving the area. Fruit stands, dumpsters and the like will be regulated to ensure there is no contaminated fruit. Growers would be required to treat their fruit and vegetables so that they're free from the dangerous flies. People can still eat fruit from trees in the area, officials said. Most local owners of pest control companies in Sunnyvale, California weren't sure what to make of all this.
Officials do not know what particular fruits are affected, and the worst thing that could happen is you could bite into a larvae. ``Corn chewing pest fly is not a human health issue. It is an agricultural issue,'' The Termite and Spider Man said. Sunnyvale pest control is an important part of the local economy, but only a few California companies deal with wild animals.
``We have very few growers and obviously because it is detected early and still very small, we're hoping the quarantine will minimally impact commercial agriculture,'' The Termite and Spider Man said. There are many types of insects and animals in Sunnyvale, and other California cities, but not all of them are pests after all.
