Collin County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Opossum repellent moth balls - do they work?
Just take a few minutes of your time to have a quick look on the internet and see the kinds of things that you can use to deter opossums. Things like urine of predators such as the coyote, noise blasters, moth balls, camphor blocks, and even radios. It's amazing, despite how many people saying that they have had oodles of success with these repelling methods, hundreds and thousands of people are still resorting to calling a local wildlife control expert to effectively deal with the situation. These methods may prove to be cheaper, but in reality, they don't always work.

Think of it this way - lights used to work for repelling opossums, simply because they are usually nocturnal. However, if they were completely nocturnal, we as humans would never see them during the day, and we do! We see them scavenging for food and rooting through garbage cans, running through the yard, and even getting into scraps with household pets. If it really was the case that these creatures would be completely repelled by lights, and/or noise, (in the cases of noise blasters) we would simply never see them - and we do!

There are tons of methods out there that have been said to repel creatures like squirrels, rats, spiders, opossums, raccoons and more, but in reality, if any of them ACTUALLY worked, and worked for the duration that we needed them to, the wildlife control people would be extinct and they are very much still up and running, with demands higher than ever before!

Animal Services - Pet Trapper raises ire of animal activists

Broona Eng, adoption manager for Collin County Animal Services, said AFRP workers contacted her agency a year and a half ago about placing Collin animals in the adoption center at Pet Trapper. For more information, call the animal services of Plano, Texas.

Pet Trapper requires animal adoption groups to contact other local groups as a courtesy. But Animal Services, she said, did not have the staff to monitor adoptions, and the animals would have been living in the store full time, she said. Collin County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Texas wildlife problems.

Declining, she said, was the responsible thing to do. Rates of return - Adoption forms issued at county shelters, the SPCA and AFRP all ask that returns be made only to the location from which an animal was adopted. Animal and carcass removal services in Collin County is dedicated to helping Texas and Plano.

But some animals from the AFRP/Pet Trapper arrangement already have been turned in at Collin County shelters. A landlord's no-pet rule, according to Carter, is the No. 1 reason given for returned animals in Collin. Collin County animal services in Plano, Texas, declined to comment on the situation.



Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (972) 769-4360, and if you need wildlife removal service in Collin County, call Wildlife X Team: 972-372-9372.
