If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Albany Corvallis home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Oregon 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 Albany Corvallis, and I recommend the following:
Ketch-Um Wildlife Control LLC
Cell Phone: 541-701-3467
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Linn County Animal Services: (503) 585-5900
Ketch-Um Wildlife Control LLC specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Oregon also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Ketch-Um Wildlife Control LLC 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 541-701-3467
to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
- Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
- Fully Oregon and Linn County licensed and insured
- Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Ketch-Um Wildlife Control LLC is a full-service Albany Corvallis wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Albany Corvallis pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Ketch-Um Wildlife Control LLC 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.
Albany Corvallis wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Oregon 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 Oregon law. We offer Albany Corvallis raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Ketch-Um Wildlife Control LLC. 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 Albany Corvallis 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 Albany Corvallis 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 Albany Corvallis rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Oregon 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 Albany Corvallis pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Albany Corvallis 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 Albany Corvallis trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Albany Corvallis 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. Ketch-Um Wildlife Control LLC does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Ketch-Um Wildlife Control LLC. 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.

. 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
. Ketch-Um Wildlife Control LLC
also provides dead animal removal in Albany Corvallis. 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 Albany Corvallis snake removal - most of the snakes in Oregon are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Albany Corvallis. And remember, we are a private business, not Linn County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (503) 585-5900.
Linn County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Albany Corvallis Wildlife Tip #1:Inspecting the home to find the entry points used by animals
When you realize that there are wild animals in your house, there is one very critical part of the solution, home inspection. There is no way you can solve the issue at hand until you find each and every hole that the animals are using to gain access to your home. These areas have to be sealed by way of very professional repairs. There are various removal companies that offer such services.
Wild animals occasionally make a shelter within your house. This can be for a few days or over winter or during the mating seasons. If you have this issue, then you have to start with inspection of your house. This is an inspection that has to be done very thoroughly. Observe all the areas of weakness. Most animals like to hide under the porch, in the shed, in the attic, or the basement, and yet others live within walls and chimneys.
If you aren't in a position to do a comprehensive search for the weak points yourself, get a professional who can do a more thorough job. In the basement, signs of burrowing animals should be checked. This would be evidenced by gaps in the soil. Cracks and holes in the walls, chimneys and the attic can also be a sign that animals are using such points to enter.
You can also spot animal fur or droppings around such areas. In the case of bats, they usually leave the nest at night. You can stay outdoors at dusk to see the point from which they leave and at dawn to observe the entry points. You will need to deal with the issue of removing the animals first before you can start sealing off the points of entry. In case of the larger animals, trapping and relocation should be done first.
Animals may find your home cozy due to the fact that they are nesting. Even if you see the animal leaving, do not go and seal off the point of entry because there might still be some young ones living within.
Bats have a tendency to leave some oily marks on the entry and exit points, and they can use pretty small cracks. Squirrels might gnaw on different areas to make some passage room. All these are things you need to look for.
Albany Corvallis Wildlife Tip #2:
Removing squirrel from your house - Have you recently found an squirrel living in your home that you cannot wait to get rid of? Thankfully, with more and more people finding themselves living alongside creatures just like this one, there are now more ways than ever to remove it from your life. From the simplest method of calling someone else to do the job for you, to the more complicated methods of removal including trapping and releasing and poisons; there are now more ways than ever before to remove the problematic squirrel from your life. 1- Kill traps and poisons - we will get to this one first, simply to get it out of the way. This is the last resort that you should look at with an squirrel simply because it is neither safe or humane. The creature isn't living in your home to spite you; it is simply looking for somewhere to rest its head so exterminating seems a little out of order. You should also bear in mind the safety aspects surrounding this form of removal. 2 -Call the wildlife guys - from the last resorts, (poisons and kill traps) to the first; the wildlife guys know what they are doing. They will have all of the tools that are needed to deal with the problem, as well as the knowledge and tricks of the trade to get it all done and finished with as soon as possible. Yes, it may cost you, but in the long run, at least you know the job will be done properly. 3- Nest boxes - these are very simple ways to remove the problem of the squirrel from your home and get it into your yard. Admittedly, this doesn't exactly solve the problem, but it can bring some relief and you never know, after a few days in your new nest box, the squirrel could choose somewhere else to live anyway! 4- Finally, we come to trapping and releasing the animal yourself. This will take some tools, such as bait and traps, and also knowledge - where to put them, where to release, (there are rules and regulations that differ in different states) etc.
