So why would I post something like this? Several years ago I was visiting Montezuma’s Castle off I-17 north of Phoenix when I observed people hand feeding some squirrels and I just was amazed. Then not a month later i heard about a bite that occurred and of course who paid the price, the squirrels.
They came in and trapped and relocated every single squirrel. Don’t feed the wildlife. Check out the article on other ways to stay away from possible issues , including prevention tips for pets.
Great article on debate whether Lyme Disease is a chronic disease. Study may suggest some correlation to Global Warming – OK I said it. Lyme Disease also imitates other nefarious like chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and mulitple sclerosis.
Two recent articles on rattlesnakes in the news, great information as many people are know hiking and interacting with critters in the desert. Our calls have increased on snakes in backyards etc. The pictures below are of a Gopher snake that got caught up on a glue board and I’m trying to set it free.
I have a friend that had a detached garage, he was doing some work and noticed that the dog food bag had a hole. He did some investigating and found that he had some rodents doing some hoarding. They were hoarding under cabinets and the stand for the hot water tank. They are crafty and will hide food for times of famine. What can you do?
- Store food in metal containers
- Check garage for entry points
- Check garage doors for tight seals
If you notice activity take measures immediately to limit their availability of food and shelter.
