Founded in 1852, Oakland, California is a major city with approximately 400,000 people. It is located in Alameda County, on the east side of the San Francisco Bay in Northern California. It is surrounded by Berkeley to the north, San Francisco to the west, and Alameda to the south. Back in the 70s, Oakland had a public reputation as a high-crime city with some of the highest ranking carjacking, robbery, assault, homicide and drug possession in California. However, in the last decade, the city has reduced its crime and increased its population due to the great location, weather, and high home prices.

Alameda County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Do You Have A Rodent In Restaurant - If you discover an infestation of rodents in your restaurant premises you must deal with it quickly and efficiently in order to avoid a detrimental effect on your business. The only guaranteed method of dealing with rodents - in a restaurant or anywhere else - is to trap and kill, or remove, them. It is all too easy to think there are more humane methods of dealing with rodents than using a trap - certainly, you may well see plenty of advertisements for 'guaranteed, fail safe' methods or rodent removal but the evidence for these methods is anecdotal at best.

Using a trap, provided it is done correctly, will indeed guarantee the removal of rodents from your restaurant premises. Once you have trapped and removed the rodents you will want to thoroughly inspect your home to make sure all possible places they are entering is sealed off from their being able to get in. Trapping rodents and ensuring they are all gone from your premises may take a little time but, since the results are guaranteed, it is time well spent. Once you have removed all the rodents it is essential that you release them far enough away from your home that they will not easily find their way back.

Animal communicator never at loss for words with pets
Graton woman says intuitive contact innate in humans

When Deborah Hatch started having trouble with her dog, Charlotte, she did what most pet owners in her situation would do: She took her to see a vet. When that didn't solve the problem, she did what most pet owners probably have not done: She consulted a pet psychic. "You do it when you're absolutely desperate," Hatch says. "I'd done everything else. And after spending $1,500 at the vet, what did I care about an extra $100?"

What Hatch -- an art curator for the Getty family in San Francisco -- cared about was keeping Charlotte from swimming in the surf at a nearby beach. The 2 1/2-year-old golden retriever loved nothing more than to run along the sand in the early morning, when only a fisherman or two dotted the usually foggy stretch of beach, and leap into the water. Hatch, whose yells and screams did nothing to deter Charlotte from taking the plunge, worried about the chronic ear infections that plagued her dog. She worried even more about the possibility of her beloved companion being swept out to sea by a rip current or mauled by a sea lion.

Hatch felt stymied until a sympathetic co-worker handed her a copy of the book "Learning Their Language" ($14.95, New World Library). Written by a woman who believes it is possible for humans to communicate intuitively not only with their pets but all forms of life, the book contains examples of how this ability has helped solve problems similar to the one Hatch was experiencing. Alameda County animal services in Berkeley, California, declined to comment on the matter.

After reading it, Hatch called author Marta Williams. Williams, whose second book, "Beyond Words" ($14.95, New World Library), was released earlier this month, scheduled a consultation. "Sometimes I'm the court of last resort," says Williams, sitting in the living room of her home in Graton, a small town a few miles northeast of Santa Rosa. "A lot of times people call me at their wits' end. There's something wrong with an animal; they can't figure it out." Alameda County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with California wildlife problems. Sometimes, says Williams, it's a behavior problem with a dog, cat or horse. Sometimes she's asked to help find a lost animal.

Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (925) 803-7040, and if you need wildlife removal service in Alameda County, call All N One Pest Eliminators: 925-478-4254.
