To whom it may concern,

As an entomologist, I am not an expert on vertebrate pest management, but I would start with this online UC resource: http://ipm.ucanr.edu/PMG/PESTNOTES/pn7483.html

You should also reach out to your county's UCCE Master Gardener Help Desk program for free pest identification and management resources: http://ccmg.ucanr.edu/Ask_Us/
