Q&A with the Branch Manager:

What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?
The most common wildlife issues that homeowners are facing here are rodents, raccoons, opossums, skunks, squirrels, rabbits and gophers. Of course you will see other animals such as deer and coyotes, but those are a result of smaller animals infesting the area.

How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?
Seasons do have an effect on some animals depending on their mating season, but with the California climate and consistent weather we have in this region customers will notice these critter issues year-round. These critters are looking for food, water and shelter, and whether its extremely hot, or cold and rainy, they want to get into customer's homes.

What are some of the common signs of nuisance wildlife activity?
The most common signs of nuisance wildlife activity are digging in the yard, scratching in the walls or attic area of the home, and various smells from animals either dying, or skunks spraying their odor.

Any prevention tips for residents in your area? If you want to help keep animals away there are a couple things you can do. First, and the most important, do not leave any food sources out where animals can get to them. This includes leaving dog or cat food out, or storing food items in the garage without a proper seal. Also, it is important to keep doors and windows protected (especially your garage door). This includes proper screening, seals, and making sure there are no gaps leading into your home.

When should homeowners call Critter Control?
You should call as soon as you notice the first sign of any activity. The sooner you call, the quicker we can get the issue under control.
