Wildlife Season

Posted by on Nov 4, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Here in the Bay Area, the days are getting shorter and while baby animal season is officially over, our experience with wildlife has demonstrated that wild baby animals can be born year round. Rare, but it can happen. At Wildlife Detectives, we continually learn from our “other clients,” the wild animals we are committed to protecting from harm. Because of what the animals have taught us, we would like to suggest to our other potential clients, (humans) to have a home inspection. Autumn is a great time for residents and businesses to take proactive measures to troubleshoot any potential den sites that could be inviting for wild animals looking to give birth or mate. During our home inspections we go the places you don’t want to go – under decks and into dirty, dank crawl spaces. We identify vulnerable areas of your home and our detectives provide recommendations and can perform the work of making your home secure against unwelcome guests. Give us a call. We’re here to help. #SFBaywildlife #wildlife #pestcontrol #wildlifecontrol...

Lawn rolling season

Posted by on Nov 4, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Since it is still lawn rolling season, we wanted to share suggestions on how you can help your lawn survive a young raccoon family using your property as a classroom for lessons in grub hunting. Grubs are beetle larvae that benefit from a moist environment, and raccoons love to eat them. Fall is the time of year that mother raccoons are taking out their young, teaching them how to forage and find food. 1) Forgo the manicured, lush green lawn and adopt an indigenous landscap… See...

Skunk

Posted by on Nov 3, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

 Published by Maggie Sergio · October 27 at 6:46pm · With our camera traps strategically placed during a humane eviction, our wildlife detectives are able to monitor the process every step of the way. This way we can be absolutely sure the animal has left the premises unharmed. This little skunk exited his den site inside a crawl space through a specially designed one-way door. This allows the skunk to leave, but once out, he can not get back in. This is great footage which shows what powerful diggers skunks are. One-way doors are just one tool we have in our tool box. They are highly effective and safe, however, we can not use them if babies are present, as they will cause mom and her babies to be separated. This skunk tried his hardest to get back in, but soon gave up the effort and moved on. https://1drv.ms/v/s!AuXzzCklxfRIggHs8lysqMRJc3xn DSCF0012.AVI AVI File onedrive.live.com...
