If you have a problem with wildlife in your Coos Bay 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 Oregon and Coos Bay, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Coos County Animal Services: (541) 269-1989

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Wildlife Removal Southwest Oregon is a full-service Coos Bay wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Coos Bay pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Removal Southwest Oregon 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.
Coos Bay 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 Coos Bay raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Removal Southwest Oregon. 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 Coos Bay 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 Coos Bay 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 Coos Bay 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 Coos Bay pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Coos Bay 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 Coos Bay trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Coos Bay 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. Wildlife Removal Southwest Oregon does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Removal Southwest Oregon. 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. Wildlife Removal Southwest Oregon also provides dead animal removal in Coos Bay. 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 Coos Bay 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 Coos Bay. And remember, we are a private business, not Coos County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (541) 269-1989. Coos 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.
Coos Bay Wildlife Tip #1:
Do More Bats Live In Urban Areas Or Wild Areas?
Bats are often mistaken as a wild animal and misunderstood as they are nocturnal in nature. They are harmless and do not possess any danger to the human race. They can see only during the night. They are not blind. Bats are the only animals that are known for preying on night insects which help keep them in control. Bats are also helpful in pollinating our flowers and are a source of important fertilizer. They help in the dispersion of the seeds in the rainforests. Bats provide a valuable support in our medical research. For people, learning and watching the bats can be both fascinating and interesting.
Bats in Urban areas:
We often see bats flying at night even in urban areas. Bats and humans are sharing houses and places from last many years. As the natural home for the bats are getting reduced due to the development, bats are moving towards the urban areas and finding places like houses, churches, bridges, mines, barns and icehouses for roosting. The artificial home provides them with micro climate. The loss of their natural home and undoubtedly increased the value of manmade roost for them. The urban development has forced them to move in the cities but it also has saved some of the species which could have been endangered. But the bats can also be difficult cohabitants as they carry harmful bacteria and viruses, can harm your pets and can cause chaos.
Bats in wild areas:
There are more than 1000 species of bats in the world some of which are endangered. Bats that live in the natural habitat can live for up to 30 years. They prefer living on the branches of the trees and cave the most. They generally make their roost where they find proper water, pasture, and woodland. They need to safely travel between the roost and the ground so they need a good communicating habitat. Some of the species of bats use caves to hibernate during the winter season as cave provides them enough humidity, low temperature and less disturbance and noise. Some of the species of bats use the caves for roosting only in the day time as they are nocturnal. As bats are known to be warm-blooded so the temperature is an important criteria for them. You will find some species of bats near the water bodies too. Each roost serves some purpose.
Bats need different roosting places in different conditions so they often move from places to places to find the right place for roosting according to their need. In summer the female bats give birth so it's the gestation period for them and in winters they need to keep them warm so they hibernate.

Oregon Wildlife Information:
Oregon State bird: Western meadowlark
State mammal: American beaver
State fish: Chinook salmon
State insect: Oregon swallowtail butterfly
Oregon is a land filled with an impressive mixture of landscapes and wildlife. The state is consistently mild and wet in climate, but certain areas are prone to waves of intense heat or cold. The desert area, which takes up a significant portion of the east part of the state, is much drier than the regions around it. Oregon also has a variety of forested land, switching between coniferous woods to mixed forests and then back to deciduous trees. These areas of woodland are found throughout the state with the exceptions of desert and shrublands. The Cascade Mountains are found in Oregon, many of them glacial bound or inactive, ancient volcanoes. Despite the variety of habitats, the majority of animals in Oregon are considered small or medium in size.
That's not to say there aren't some big species in the state. Bison, elk, moose, pronghorn and multiple species of deer populate the region. The larger grazers are followed by a few large predators like grizzly bears, mountain lions, gray wolves, and Canada lynx. Though not really a large predator, the Canada lynx is the "transition" predator into small species like the bobcat.
There is no shortage of food supply for grazers or carnivores. The hooved animals have access to vegetation for much of the entire year, and small game critters feed the population of wolves and large cats. Oregon has raccoons, rabbits, mice, rats, opossums, skunks, and lizards to feed the likes of bobcats and lynx. The state also has a variety of nuisance critters not commonly eaten by large predators such as bats, squirrels, and beavers.
Being a Pacific coast state, Oregon has a fair share of marine wildlife. The animals along the coast are not usually problems for homeowners, though they can occasionally make a mess out of private or public beach areas. The state has seals, sea lions, dolphins, porpoises, and whales. Whale watching is a lucrative trade along the tourist routes. People can venture out in a boat to see a grey whale, sei whale, humpback whale, blue whale, or a variety of others. Fishermen are the only ones who might consider a whale problematic, but the large creatures rarely go close enough to fishing vessels to get tangled in any gear.
