If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Boise home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Idaho 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 Boise, and I recommend the following:
THIS SPACE AVAILABLE
Cell Phone: ###-###-####
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Ada County Animal Services: 208-342-3508
THIS SPACE AVAILABLE specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Idaho also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and THIS SPACE AVAILABLE 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 ###-###-####
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 Idaho and Ada 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
THIS SPACE AVAILABLE is a full-service Boise wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Boise pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. THIS SPACE AVAILABLE 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.
Boise wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Idaho 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 Idaho law. We offer Boise raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at THIS SPACE AVAILABLE. 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 Boise 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 Boise 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 Boise rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Idaho 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 Boise pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Boise 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 Boise trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Boise 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. THIS SPACE AVAILABLE does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by THIS SPACE AVAILABLE. 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
. THIS SPACE AVAILABLE
also provides dead animal removal in Boise. 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 Boise snake removal - most of the snakes in Idaho are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Boise. And remember, we are a private business, not Ada County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 208-342-3508.
Ada County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Boise Wildlife Tip #1:
What kind of poison will kill a raccoon or groundhog? Extermination is a road that you probably aren't going to want to go down when it comes to removing a raccoon or groundhog from your life, although you would be forgiven for thinking about. As yet, there are no registered poisons that have been deemed safe and humane to kill a raccoon or groundhog, which is why you should look at other extermination methods, such as using kill traps. This is even more so the case if you want your raccoon or groundhog to have a somewhat humane death. Usually, rat poison is used to kill a raccoon or groundhog, and although it might work, it will generally take a long time, in some cases - 4 weeks or more. As you can probably imagine, this will be a long and painful death, with the animal suffering with related conditions of the poisoning, rather than the poisoning itself - blood loss, internal bleeding and even anemia. These are all things that have proven to be very painful - is it really worth it? You are already ending the raccoon or groundhog's life; do you really want to put it through that much pain beforehand? There are so many risk factors that you are going to need to put some serious thought into if you decide to use poison. Firstly, are your children going to be safe? Secondly, are you going to kill your dog or cat, or even other household pets in the community? Thirdly, could you be the cause of secondary poisoning? This is when a predator eats the carcass of the raccoon or groundhog that has died as a result of poisoning, thus transferring the poisoning residue to another animal. This could potentially kill wildlife that you may actively be encouraging into your garden. If you really want to get rid of that raccoon or groundhog, there are so many other options open to you that poisoning should really be a last resort, especially if you are not willing to put your time and effort into researching it first.
Boise Wildlife Tip #2:
Baby skunk sounds - Baby skunks make typical sounds when compared to other mammals of the same size. Their noises have been compared to those of a puppy, and a series of yelps, yaps, and squeals make up the bulk of the communication noises. Female skunks usually give birth around the month of May, and their litters are generally small. If you hear the sounds of baby animals beneath your home, you can be certain they are skunks by the pungent odor that will be left by the adult. You have to be careful when trapping and removing an adult that might have babies. If you suspect there is a litter of skunks beneath your porch or shed, contacting a professional can be a good way to handle the situation. The expert will be able to trap the adult and then remove the litter. The best way to take care of this type of situation is to prevent it altogether. Since you know skunks have litter around May, you know you have to get your yard cleaned up before that time. Make sure there is no debris out on the property. Fence in your garden; remove any pet food that might be sitting outside. If you have a deck, porch, or shed with an open space beneath the floor, you need to close that area immediately.

A state's agriculture is a big part of its identity in the country, but when it comes to Idaho, potatoes aren't the only thing that the state should be recognized for. Idaho is actually one of the Rocky Mountain states, meaning it has a vast stretch of the infamous range within its boundaries. As a mountainous state, it has an abundance of valleys and raging rivers. Much of the waterways are used for commercial rafting. Not only does Idaho have a claim to fame as far as beautiful mountain peaks go, it has the nation's largest expanse of unadulterated wilderness, the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness Area. If that wasn't enough, the region boasts the deepest gorge in the United States as well, Hells Canyon. The climate in the state is just as random as the landscape, and the western region experiences significant moisture from the Pacific Ocean. This makes for warm, humid summers and cool, wet winters. The same cannot be said for the rest of the region, which can see considerably drier weather due to elevation.
Animals in the state consist of those loving the valleys and those that love the mountains. Idaho is one of the only states not to have a significant population of black bears. Instead, the state is known for its grizzly bears and mountain lions. The mountain lions are far more reclusive than the bears, and it's been said that one lion has a territory range of 80 square miles. That doesn't mean territories don't overlap, but it does mean you're more likely to see a grizzly bear in the woods. Unlike the black bears in the rest of the nation, grizzlies tend to be more aggressive and more inclined to hunt their dinners. A hungry grizzly won't think twice about harassing a mother mountain lion for her young. If push comes to shove, the mountain lion can win against the bear, but both animals will come out of the deal badly shaken.
Nuisance animals in this state are abundant for the same reason other animals flourish. The region sees issues with small animals like rats, mice, raccoons, opossums, otters, beavers, squirrels, chipmunks, and coyotes. Due to the large expanse of national parks, much of the larger wildlife stays clear of humans.
