If you have a problem with wildlife in your Reedsport 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 Reedsport, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Douglas County Animal Services: (541) 997-4277
Pacific Wildlife Control 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 Pacific Wildlife Control 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 541-255-2308 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:
Pacific Wildlife Control is a full-service Reedsport wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Reedsport pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Pacific Wildlife Control 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.
Reedsport 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 Reedsport raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Pacific Wildlife Control. 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 Reedsport 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 Reedsport 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 Reedsport 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 Reedsport pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Reedsport 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 Reedsport trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Reedsport 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. Pacific Wildlife Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Pacific Wildlife Control. 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. Pacific Wildlife Control also provides dead animal removal in Reedsport. 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 Reedsport 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 Reedsport. And remember, we are a private business, not Douglas County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (541) 997-4277. Douglas 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.
Reedsport Wildlife Tip #1:
What Is A Bat's Natural Diet?
The natural diet of a young bat is always milk and it is dependent on the mother for it till it grows up. After few weeks when they are born they are expected to fly way from their place and prey on insects for the food. It's completely their own responsibility to hunt and search for water. The eating habits of bats revolve around feeding, hunting and satisfying their thrust.
Here we will discuss few things that are the bat's natural diet. They are mammals and thus play a very important role in balancing the ecosystem. Bats are nocturnal in nature and prefer to hunt on the insects during the night time. They rest or sleep in the roost during the day time. Bats are known to have some special navigation mechanism which helps them to prey on the animals during the night time. They use echolocation for locating and hunting their prey. When bats fly they produce some sound that is high pitched which hit the insects and then reflect back to the bats and thus they can locate them.
Feeding and diet of bats
Generally the natural diet of bats consists of night insects, blood, vertebrates, fruits and flower nectar. A study shows that majority of the species of the bat have insects as their natural diet. They eat both the aerial as well as ground dwelling insects. A study has shown that one third of the weight of the bats is due to the consumption of insects every night and they can consume more than hundred of insects in just few hours.
Bats play a vital role in the balancing of the eco system. If they become extinct then the rate of insects will eventually increase and reach to an alarming level. It's not easy to watch a bat hunting its prey. They are very fast and alter the direction and continue the way. Bats usually capture the insects in the air with the mouth and eat it in the air itself. Bats are categorized as the aerial insectivorous and the moment of bats is very fast in air. They use some special navigation method to get a good result.
Fruits and flower nectar
In two of the bat family there is a special habitat as Frugivory. They are basically known as Micro chiropterans and Mega chiropterans. These kinds of bats generally have the natural juices extracted from the sweet fruits as their natural diet. They like to eat sweet and the most fleshy fruits which should also have a very strong smell and a good colour. The bats use their teeth to get the juice out of the fruit to fulfil their requirements. Few bats are carnivores as they feed on vertebrates.
Reedsport Wildlife Tip #2:
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.
