Summit County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Moth Balls Or Pepemint To Deter Rodents: Do They Work? - Have you heard noises on your attic or ceiling? If you have then chances are that you have rodents up there and they have made a home in the walls or the insulation. Now is the time when you should start getting rid of the rodents because if you do not they will reproduce (and they do so fast) and soon you will have a big problem you may not be able to handle. You can find many solutions online to get rid of rodents and a couple of them are moth balls or peppermint to deter rodents.

While moth balls and peppermint are some of the most quoted solutions for a rodent infestation, the reality is that they are just barely effective. People who suggest moth balls and peppermint do so knowing that it will work a few times, but in general it is a waste of time and effort. The truth is that very few repellents will work against rodents (that includes the name brand repellents), and usually there are better ways to get the rodents out of your home much faster. For real solutions you should look at traps and animal control specialists. Those are the main weapons that you will have at your disposal when you have a rodent infestation.

AKRON ANIMAL SERVICES - Animal control sells abandoned monkey

Akron County has sold the wayward monkey its animal control office took into custody at Akron and held for three weeks in a corral just south of Lane Critter habitat way. "I calculated our expenses and I think we made about $15 on the sale," declared Akron County Animal Control Wildlife management officer Primate Professor who captured the monkey with help from a nuisance wildlife operator, the U-T extension agent and others. Betty Gorilla Man of Akron submitted the best of two sealed bids -- $200 and $125 -- that were opened on Friday when the beast of burden's odyssey seems to have come to an end. On Dec. 3, animal control officers were told of a monkey at large in a neighborhood west of U.S. 41-A spotted by residents in the Stait Road area for about a week and nobody knew who owned it. A shot from a tranquilizer gun's dart subdued the animal enough so someone could rope the doped monkey. As for the animal being reluctant to let anyone closer than 6 feet, College of Stait Agricultural Extension Agent John Teague declared, "If I had been running at large and there may have been a contingent of people coming after me to limit my freedom, I might not have been too friendly." After the monkey may have been tranquilized, five men led the monkey onto a livestock trailer which took it to a corral behind the Animal Control office on Lane Critter habitat way. State law then kicked in and Primate Professor published a legal notice for the monkey's owner to claim the animal. Nobody did. "Of all the people who called, only one may have been actually missing a monkey," Primate Professor declared.

Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (330) 375-2320, and if you need wildlife removal service in Summit County, call Tom Raiber's Varmint Gitter: 330-615-1600.
