If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Issaquah 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 Issaquah, and I recommend the following:
US Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 425-947-5348
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call King County Animal Services: (206) 296-7387
US Wildlife Removal 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 US Wildlife Removal 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 425-947-5348
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 Washington and King 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
US Wildlife Removal is a full-service Issaquah wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Issaquah pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. US Wildlife Removal 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.
Issaquah 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 Issaquah raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at US Wildlife Removal. 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 Issaquah 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 Issaquah 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 Issaquah 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 Issaquah pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Issaquah 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 Issaquah trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Issaquah 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. US Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by US Wildlife Removal. 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
. US Wildlife Removal
also provides dead animal removal in Issaquah. 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 Issaquah 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 Issaquah. And remember, we are a private business, not King County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (206) 296-7387.
King County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Issaquah Wildlife Tip #1:Where Do Rats Go In Summer
Rats do not wait for the specific season to attack your house; they stay active throughout the year. However, the summer season is more suitable to them as in these months they are able to find a variety of food items with ease. While searching for their favorite foodstuff in the summer, they will also find a way to your house. That is why most of the cases of rat infestation are reported in the summer season.
Note that summer season, being the dry season appears busiest time for humans as well as wild animals. The best examples are rats as you can easily find them running in different corners of your house. They prefer to work hard in this season so that they can collect enough food for the winter season when they would love to hide at some warm place and wait for the rise in temperature.
The kitchen is always their favorite place as they find lots of interesting stuff for their seasonal collections. They would even love to visit your premises with their family so you can find many big and small rats running here and there in your house. They will go in search of food when everyone else in the house is sleeping and will try to collect as much they can to ensure full comfort during the winter season. You can often hear them making noise in the attic or other dark corners of the house where they feel no one can notice them. These tiny creatures are able to run faster in search of food; you cannot catch or trap them without any pre-preparation.
If you are facing too much disturbance due to rats in your house in the summer season, the best idea is to use some home-based treatments to force them to move out. Although, some people also prefer to use a rat trap but it may also kill these little animals. Being human, you need to protect their lives as well and find ways to get rid of them without killing them.
The best way to prevent rat attacks in your house is to close all the entry points before the beginning of the summer season. It will stop them outside as they will not be able to find a way to enter into your home. You can also use some home-based sprays or ingredients to force them to move out of your living space.
Rats in the summer season can be often found in the attic where they feel cool during peak heat. It also provides them an easy path to your kitchen. Hence, before they consider your attic as their favorite home; prefer to block all the entry points to your attic area. You can also keep some mothballs inside the attic as they do not like its smell and will avoid entering inside. If you live in an area where rat infestation cases are increasing due to their frequent attack on food; it is good to call professionals to ensure trustworthy rat removal from your home.
Issaquah Wildlife Tip #2:
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.
