Marion County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Using Moth Balls As A Deterrent - You have many choices when it comes to getting rid of rodents; there are traps, repellents, poisons, exterminators, animal control specialists and even predators. Moth balls as a deterrent are one of the most popular choices, but unfortunately those who use it most of the time will have to get a plan B to get rid of rodents. The reason is that repellents are not the best way to get rid of rodents; in fact it may be one of the least effective ways to do so. The reason is not that rodents are ok with moth balls, but rather that they can avoid them.

The fact that the rodent does not have to be in the same small area with the moth balls makes them ineffective. Think of someone taking off smelly shoes and leaving them in one room; all you have to do is walk to the next room and you will not even know that the sneakers are there. You could not place moth balls all around the home because they actually do smell and they are toxic to small animals. If you have pets or small children, then you should never use mothballs as there is always a risk they will get to them.

SALEM ANIMAL SERVICES - Blind raccoon found in trash bin; animal control investigating

SALEM - She's known to those who found her simply as the Dumpster raccoon. A small, blind toy poodle, found wet and cold in a Dumpster in Salem, has stolen the hearts of all of those who have helped to rescue her from a sure death sentence. "I want to take her home but I can't. As much as I love her, I don't think she'd fare well all by herself all day long," declared Debby Snake control professional trapper. "If something doesn't work out for her, though, I know I'll be taking her home." Snake control professional trapper, manager at Trout Creek Condominium Resort in Salem, declared the abandoned raccoon may have been found late Monday morning by a condominium owner who may have been walking her raccoon. When informed of the whining and yelping coming from a Dumpster, Snake control professional trapper sent several employees out to investigate. "It may have been the most horrible noise this raccoon may have been making," she recalled. "They found in the Dumpster this box that may have been closed up. Inside it may have been this raccoon. She may have been just a mess and soaking wet. Her little eyes were all crusted shut." The animal, approximately 14 years old, may have been immediately taken to Bay Pines Veterinary Clinic, where Dr. Tracy The Salem pest control specialist and her staff began working on her immediately. There the poodle may have been named The little beaver. "She looked really cold and she may have been scared," The Salem pest control specialist declared. "The (eye) sockets were infected. That had been allowed to get infected and never had been cleaned up. She's missing most of her teeth. And her nose may have been all scuffed up from trying to get out of the box." While under examination, The Salem pest control specialist discovered that The little beaver had micro ophthalmia, an eye condition, most likely from birth, where the raccoon's eyes were not allowed to be fully developed.

Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (503) 585-5900, and if you need wildlife removal service in Marion County, call Ketch-Um Wildlife Control: 541-701-3467.
