If you have a problem with wildlife in your Aberdeen home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Washington wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Washington and Aberdeen, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Grays Harbor County Animal Services: (360) 537-3382
Jack Russell Wildlife Control specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Washington also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Jack Russell Wildlife Control is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 360-539-8266 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Jack Russell Wildlife Control is a full-service Aberdeen wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Aberdeen pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Jack Russell Wildlife Control performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Aberdeen wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Washington to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know. Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Washington law. We offer Aberdeen raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Jack Russell Wildlife Control. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Aberdeen squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed. Never, ever use poison! Most Aberdeen exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Aberdeen rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Washington is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Aberdeen pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Aberdeen bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Aberdeen trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Aberdeen wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Jack Russell Wildlife Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Jack Russell Wildlife Control. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc. Read about how to get rid of opossums. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks. Jack Russell Wildlife Control also provides dead animal removal in Aberdeen. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Aberdeen snake removal - most of the snakes in Washington are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Aberdeen. And remember, we are a private business, not Grays Harbor County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (360) 537-3382. Grays Harbor County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Aberdeen Wildlife Tip #1:
Methods To Get Bats Out Of the Barrel Tile Roof
Most of the homeowners love to install barrel tiles on the roofs as they look more attractive, but the sad fact is that even bats also like them and prefer to build their nests inside. These tiles have enough gaps through them from where bats can easily squeeze inside Moreover; clay tiles are dark and warm; bats are always happy to find such a cozy place to live. Experts say that bats are always curious moving through vertical gaps instead of the horizontal ones; the most preferred target for them can be chimney opening. In case if there is a small gap below the tiles, bats are self-efficient to build their nest inside. As there are hundreds of entry points in the barrel tile roofs; it becomes quite difficult for the homeowners to seal them all to avoid access to bats.
When bats are successful in gaining access to your roof through tiles, they can easily find a way to your attic. When bats are capable enough to move through the attic, it can further lead to several problems. The biggest issue is that these creatures carry harmful disease viruses such as rabies etc. that can be transferred to humans and pets around. When bats gain access to your living space, they can also bite you in aggression, and it leads to huge trouble for the long run. Rabies can cause serious issues or even a threat to life as well when left untreated.
Another big problem associated with bats is the development of fungus due to their guano. In case if a person inhales those spores of the fungus, it can cause a lung infection that is better known as histoplasmosis. Although the disease can be treated by using few medical therapies or treatments; but it can cause huge loss to your health within very less time.
In case if bats are living in your premises, it is good to find some way to deal with their removal process on time. Some people prefer to make use of home-based treatments to avoid their access to the roof and attic area, but they cannot provide the desired results every time. Experts advise using exclusion device for a few days so that bats can be forced to move out of the area. You can install these funnel-shaped exclusion devices near bat nests or the area where they keep on visiting more often as like your attic. The exclusion devices provide the one-way moving ability to the bats so that they can come out of the funnel, but they cannot find space to enter again. In this way, bats can be taken out permanently.
In order to remove bats humanely and by following legal procedures, it is better to follow the live bat exclusion method. To do this, you need to mark all the bat entry and exit points first and then seal all of them except one. Install the exclusion funnel at the remaining point and let all the bats come out through it. Once space is empty inside, seal this hole as well.

Washington Wildlife Information:
Washington State bird: Willow goldfinch
State mammal: Olympic marmot, orca
State amphibian: Pacific tree frog
State fish: Steelhead trout
State insect: Green darner dragonfly
Washington State is one of the lesser-publicized states in the country, largely because it is out of the path of many natural disasters like tornados, hurricanes, and powerful 'Nor-Easter' storms. The state has a stunning sea on its upper western corner. This sea is named the Salish Sea, and it is an inlet of the Pacific Ocean filled with hundreds of islands and deep bays. There are over 100 animal species that rely on the sea for food and shelter. Beyond the sea, heading inland, the state is divided north to south by the Cascade Mountains. This is only one of several large mountain ranges in Washington. On the western side of the divide, the weather is typically mild with cooler, wet winters. The eastern side of the divide is very opposite. There are dry areas that are considered deserts, and a large semi-arid region on the west side is used primarily for agriculture.
The mountains in Washington are home to many large and small animals. The largest of these is the moose, which is rivaled only by grizzly bear in weight. Grizzlies are uncommon in the state, spotted only in the deepest parts of the Cascades. Their more common cousin, the black bear, is found in most of the region, and can be troublesome for people trying to keep birdfeeders up. The next creatures down the size chain are elk, cougars, and coyotes. Elk are herd animals, and they typically remain at the tops of mountains until winter snows drive them in to the valleys.
It is not the large animals that are problems in the state of Washington. This state did not escape the attention of pest critters like raccoons, skunks, woodchucks, pocket gophers, bats and opossums. Anyone living close to the forested areas of the state will see these opportunistic animals, and they will undoubtedly see a fair share of squirrels, rats, and mice, too.
The Salish Sea hosts just as many critters as do the mountains. In the sea, otters, whales, sea lions, seals, and blue heron are frequent visitors. Homeowners looking to live along the coast will eventually be exposed to the many land animals, like black bear, that come to enjoy the wealth of wildlife at the water's edge.
