Shelby County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Opossum prevention methods
People tend to give the local wildlife people a call when they spot any kind of wild animal in their yard, but in reality, this could be just a waste of a phone call, especially when you take into consideration the things that you could do yourself to encourage your new visitor to leave. Think about it logically - there are only a few factors that are leading the opossum into your yard, so by taking these factors out of the equation, you could go back to having your home to yourself again in no time at all.

One of the things that it is probably best to avoid when it comes to opossum prevention methods is repellants. There is a whole market of these things and the rather disappointing news is that very few of them, if any, actually work. Some of them may even work for a few days and then stop working, simply because the animal has fast gotten used to them. If you are going to waste money on these repellants, you are probably going to better off just calling the local experts in such a field to sort the situation out for you.

Some people build fences around their gardens or yards in a bid to keep the opossums out, but even this could be a waste of time as they are fairly good climbers, especially when there is a low-lying tree branch or similar around to give them a little helping hand. Taking away the food source is a very sensible idea - things like moving the pet food inside and not leaving it on the porch, making sure that the garbage lid is firmly down and tied if necessary, and even figuring out a new plan for your compost heap. Once the food is taken out of the equation, you are more than likely going to find that the animal will just move elsewhere where food is more readily available.

Animal Services - Memphis and the Truth about Cats and Dogs

The City Council has become so concerned about the DOG and the MEMPHIS protest group called the Animal Defense League that it has approved a plan which provides taxpayer dollars for surveillance equipment at the private homes of animal services employees. For more information, call the animal services of Memphis, Tennessee.

With high tech cameras, these workers can weed out door-to-door salesmen and pesky in-laws-again on the taxpayer's dime--under the pretense that the big bad wolf, also known as the animal activist, might show up with a feral cat flyer, order them a fake cab or protest on the sidewalk with a sign. Shelby County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Tennessee wildlife problems.

Although city workers have a right to feel safe, this measure amounts to another questionable use of limited resources for a city that had 31,000 violent crimes last year. Animal and carcass removal services in Shelby County is dedicated to helping Tennessee and Memphis.

The mayor continues to react to the "DOG threat." He recently removed Erika The Wild Animal Expert from the Memphis Animal Commission and replaced her with surveillance expert Glenn S. The Cat and Dog Exterminator. Shelby County animal services in Memphis, Tennessee, declined to comment on the matter.

Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (901) 937-3900, and if you need wildlife removal service in Shelby County, call Wildlife X Team: 901-457-5919.
