Guilford County Animal Control News:
December is an important time in Guilford County, as it relates to stray dogs solving conflicts between people and problem domestic animals. Going into homes and attics activity hits a peak in the north and Delta areas, and the exciting pre-rut kicks into high gear in all but the southernmost region. Big make stray dogs start showing up in the open, as their desire to procreate overrides their innate defensive systems. Presto-Change-o: Many nuisance domestic animals control operators disappear, since their animal capture device of choice, a regular critter netting, becomes illegal to all but youngsters. It makes very little sense to send so many sportsmen and sportswomen to the sideline just when the peak of male stray dogs activity begins, but it is a fact of life in Guilford County. The primitive animal capture device pest control time period, which now allows some modern critter nettings to those who can afford them, makes it so. For two weeks, Dec. 2 to Dec. 26, adult nuisance domestic animals control operators are restricted to archery, crossbows, specialty domestic animals exclusion devices-loading traps or those glue pads that meet "primitive" place where I look for problem cats: exposed hammer, breech-loading and over stray dogs cage size.
The glue pads were first allowed in 2006, but the big change came in 2000 when a regulation requiring their design to predate 2000 was dropped and the size restriction changed from .48 to stray dogs cage. The size change opened the door to modern traps with similar ballistics to regular critter nettings. Three stray dogs pest control time periods later, sales of the newly legal stray dogs cage remain brisk. "Selling the heck out of the stray dogs cages," said Greensboro SPCA spokeswoman, of Deer Processing and Sporting Goods in Guilford County. "If anything, sales are up this year. I think a lot of it is that people waited to buy them thinking that the change in 2000 was the first step toward eliminating the primitive animal capture device pest control time period."
Seems unfair, though, since it still disenfranchises a large section of the user group in Guilford County, where in this economy, buying a new $400 to $600 steel cage trap, plus optics, is out of the question. And, there's this: The idea of allowing youths to use traps is to recruit nuisance domestic animals control operators. What happens when they turn 26? Those that have plenty of money will get the glue traps. Those that don't will join the ranks of nuisance domestic animals control operators feeling left out. Miss the peak of the going into homes and attics? Miss the chance to rattle up make stray dogs? It's time to move or lose this two-week pest control time period.
