If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls, and I recommend the following:
Cell Phone: 541-537-4835
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Klamath County Animal Services: 541-882-1279
Bugs Northwest 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 Bugs Northwest 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 541-537-4835
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 Klamath 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
Bugs Northwest is a full-service Klamath Falls wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Klamath Falls pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Bugs Northwest 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.
Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Bugs Northwest. 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 Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Klamath Falls 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. Bugs Northwest does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Bugs Northwest. 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
. Bugs Northwest
also provides dead animal removal in Klamath Falls. 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 Klamath Falls 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 Klamath Falls. And remember, we are a private business, not Klamath County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 541-882-1279.
Klamath County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Klamath Falls Wildlife Tip #1:
What kind of bait is used for catching a raccoon - When it comes to the raccoon, you have as many choices for bait as there are isles in the grocery store. This animal is an omnivore and a scavenger. It will eat just about anything. That being said, when you use certain bait in a raccoon trap, you run the risk of luring in other animals like skunks, opossums, and feral (or domestic) cats. The last thing you want to do is explain to your neighbor why his or her cat is trapped in your yard. According to leading professionals, marshmallows are actually the best bait for a raccoon. These mammals are drawn to items that resemble eggs, and the marshmallow will provide a tasty treat not easily devoured in one bite. Though using good bait is helpful, this is only a small part of the successful trapping process. Even more important than bait is trap size, location, and set up. If you have a trap that is too far from the raccoon's path of travel or set up on uneven ground, you probably won't see a raccoon inside any time soon.
Klamath Falls Wildlife Tip #2:
Skunk human hair - There are a lot of people in the world who have embraced the natural approach to just about everything-including pest control. When it comes to repelling skunks, using human hair is one of the first things you'll read about on "all natural" websites. In theory, human hair repels skunks because it smells strongly of humans, and skunks are scared of humans. While it makes sense on paper, the theory has been debunked in the field by professionals. Not only will a skunk disregard human hair, it will probably walk right over it to get into the yard. Without the physical presence of a predator, most animals like skunks don't put too much stock into items associated with smells. We don't give these creatures enough credit; if they don't see a predator, they aren't going to be concerned. Human hair is usually the first option, second only to the use of dog fur and mothballs. The interesting thing about mothballs is that they are a known carcinogen, and there is nothing natural or holistic about them. Just because they are inexpensive doesn't mean they are a user-friendly approach to pest control.

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.
