If you have a problem with wildlife in your Pendleton 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 Pendleton, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Umatilla County Animal Services: (541) 276-0181

bats in buildings, and Wildlife Removal Northeast Oregon 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 541-636-9013 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Wildlife Removal Northeast Oregon is a full-service Pendleton wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Pendleton pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Removal Northeast 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.
Pendleton 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 Pendleton raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Removal Northeast 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 Pendleton 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 Pendleton 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 Pendleton 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 Pendleton pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Pendleton 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 Pendleton trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Pendleton 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 Northeast Oregon does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Removal Northeast 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 Northeast Oregon also provides dead animal removal in Pendleton. 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 Pendleton 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 Pendleton. And remember, we are a private business, not Umatilla County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (541) 276-0181. Umatilla 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.
Pendleton Wildlife Tip #1:
Will A Raccoon In The Attic Have A Nest Of Babies?
Raccoons are very common pests that are found in urban areas. They set up camp in many places in and around human settlements which includes the house, attic, garden or anywhere there is an easy source of food- such as garbage cans, leftover food, etc.
Out of these one of the most common places where the raccoon lives and breeds is in the attic of your home. They live there because it's a great habitat, much like a hollow tree-it's warm, dry and safe from the elements of nature. And when female raccoons are pregnant they generally seek after places which underline the above said criteria. As a result, the house attic is a popular ground to breed and prosper.
They get into the attic through open vents, soft fits which are torn open and through unsealed or broken window panes. Getting them out is fairly difficult as the mother raccoon will not surrender a place that is a safe ground to take care of her young.
To determine if the animal that has set up camp in your attic is a raccoon you need to look for clues as to what type of noises that come through or merely going up to the attic and catching a sight of them. It is possible to listen to various growls, cries and the thumps made on the wooden floor while it walks and most of them could be heard at night, though some are active even during the day. Sighting them is not particularly difficult as they are not really adept at hiding their presence with swift movements. They are one of the largest pests that can live in an attic, but determining the raccoon nests where the newborn babies are- as simply finding and excluding the mother will make the babies die of starvation and you would have a whole new set of problems to encounter.
A trap is required to catch hold of the female raccoon as it is quite large and cannot be possibly caught with bare hands. The young ones can be, put into a cage and send to a wildlife rehabilitation center where they are fed and nurtured and released into the wild when they are able to take care of themselves. Paw Hold and Body Grip traps should be avoided as they cause a great deal of pain to the raccoon when a paw or their midsection is caught in a trap. Instead a live cage trap should be used along with favorable baits which include bread crumbs, sweets and marshmallows in order to lure them into cages and capture them. If you are unable to capture the raccoons at all, seek the help of professional wild life trapping agencies that can go ahead and take care of the problems for you.

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.
