Monroe County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Is Rodent Deterrent Cat Smell A Guaranteed Method Of Rodent Removal? - Rodent infestation is a common problem with a plethora of so-called 'guaranteed' solutions. Many home remedies and methods like involving lights, sounds and smells promote themselves as the only solution for dealing with unwanted pests including rodents. Using a rodent deterrent with cat smell is just one of these supposedly 'guaranteed' methods of dealing with what is potentially an expensive and dangerous infestation of your property. In fact, there is little or no evidence to support any method of rodent invasion other than trapping the animals and removing, or killing them.
Using a rodent deterrent cat smell is only likely to create more work for the homeowner as they will have to clean this smell away as well as the mess left by the rodents when they are eventually evicted. Rodents are hardy creatures more than capable of becoming acclimatized to any unpleasant smell or obstacle intended to bar their way into their home. Using traps and taking the time to set them properly followed by rodent proofing your property is the only proven method of rodent removal. Whilst using a deterrent such as cat smell may seem to be more humane or even quicker than using a trap it actually just wastes time and money since, in the long term, it will not work.

ROCHESTER ANIMAL SERVICES - Monroe County: Promoting greater awareness of animal-control services and the responsibilities of wild animal owners. Helping to promote prevention of injuries to property and other hazards that result from uncontrolled animals. Helping prevent injury and the inhumane treatment of animals. Sending an annual report to critter legislators about changes in animal control and initiatives for the next year. A major change to the board would be its authority to hear appeals and provide recommendations to the animal-control wildlife management officer. Currently, residents cited for a violation of animal-cruelty laws appeal to Jennings. He also hears about any complaints or concerns about the animal-control department. The board would establish a way for residents to appeal and raise concerns at a hearing. It may form a subversion regulatory board composed of at least three board members. Critter legislators will have to consider approving the suggestion. If they do, they would appoint the members, who would range from people who represent animal-welfare organizations to some who don't own wild critters. A representative of the Monroe County Health Department would serve on the board, as well as those representing Monroe County municipalities that are served by the animal-control department. The nuisance wildlife trapper, the deputy county manager who oversees the animal-control department, declared yesterday that critter legislators would likely get their first look at the suggestion by the end of the decade. Critter legislators could make a decision by February, and if approved, the new board could have its first organized hearing this summer, The nuisance wildlife trapper declared.
