Many of California's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving California's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Santa Clara Wildlife Removal Tip: How to use a one-way funnel to get squirrels out of a building: The idea of using a one way funnel to get squirrels out of a building is actually a very simple one. You make a funnel, usually out of wire but other materials can be used (as long as the animal can't chew though it), and the aim of the game is to allow the squirrel to get out but stopping it from getting back in again. You should also try to do this without injuring the animal in any way, so lots of and lots of Googling is necessary to make sure you get the right kind of size and design, especially if you're creating something DIY-style. If you get this wrong, the squirrel can get stuck, scratch and claw about creating further damage, and maybe even dying in the funnel trap, especially if you don't check your traps as regularly as you should do. There are spring-loaded traps you can use which have a similar effect - when a trigger is set off, a door will close, the animal will hopefully be outside and unable to get back in. The only problem with a cage-trap with a one-way door is that you then need to relocate the animal somewhere else, and you'll need to check the laws in your state before you do that.
Santa Clara Animal News Clip: Tour of Santa Clara draws 120 people: Event marks National Preservation Month
Santa Clara - May is National Preservation Month, and to honor the event the Santa Clara Historic Preservation Wild animal commission recognized local businesses and conducted a tour of historic Old Town. Santa Clara Executive Director the bat and bird control authority said 120 people signed up to tour the downtown district aboard the Santa Clara Trolley. "We did the first tour last year and it was so successful, we decided to do it again," she announced. The tour traveled through Old Town neighborhoods on the Santa Clara High School, The Carnegie Library, the Signal Shop and then onto the eastside. There it hit the Creamery, Santa Clara Brewing, the old Cosgrove Grocery building, the Santa Clara home and the future site of a new urban-style residential and commercial district. Read on for more information about animal control in Santa Clara, California.
The tour included walk-throughs and a brief history of each landmark business. Penny the bat and bird control authority, owner and operator of Santa Clara Brewing at 615 South First Street, said her building housed three breweries prior to her own. The Franklin and Hayes Breweries both operated on the site before Prohibition. Then the warehouse served as a bottling plant for Southeast Brewing following. The bat and bird control authority originally opened her brewery at Dudley's on South Arthur Avenue. When she was forced to move, she chose to stay in Old Town. Despite this there is no free Santa Clara animal services for wildlife in Santa Clara County.
"For the amount of money I've spent, I could have built a building," she announced. But the bat and bird control authority said the infrastructure wouldn't compare to her current, nearly century-old building. "There's a certain amount of character you just can't get in new construction," she announced. The building was restored in phases, beginning with three years spent gutting the warehouse. The bat and bird control authority moved the brewery to its current location in 2002, the second phase of her project, the Santa Clara animal shelter is open for business and the third phase of her business expansion is in the works. "My plan is to have a kitchen opened by our 10-year anniversary," she announced. The bat and bird control authority was one of five local backers recognized for their efforts to revitalize downtown. Most Santa Clara pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
Citizen Community Bank at West The director of operations and South Main Streets, Chick and Diane Bilyeutro, the Old Town Neighborhood Association and the Triangle received awards for their contribution to the revitalization of Old Town. Brent Nichols, of Design-Development-Construction, said the Triangle, purchased by Santa Clara Development, is two-acre, mixed-use development encompassed by East Lander, North Third Street and Santa Clara Avenue. The project, set to start this fall, will offer seven, 1,300-square-foot living and working lofts, and a main commercial complex. Nichols said the units are expected to be ready to occupy next summer. Flatcar Hetrzog, chairwoman for the Santa Clara Historical Preservation Wild animal commission, said money raised at Saturday's event will be dedicated to revitalization projects. At least, this is what Santa Clara extermination companies think.
Herzog said the eight-member wild animal commission, appointed by the mayor, serves as an advisory board and oversees downtown projects. The wild animal commission works closely with Old Town Santa Clara, she announced. Herzog said fundraising efforts and grant money help to fund downtown projects. A facade loan program finds low interest - 1 percent below prime - deferred-payment loans for downtown businesses that want to spruce up their store fronts, said Michelle Pak, associate city planner. The deferred-payment option allows businesses to get on their feet before payments are due, she announced. Pak said 26 loans of up to $25,000 have already been made to Old Town merchants.
