If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Shelton 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 Shelton, and I recommend the following:
Jack Russell Wildlife Control
Cell Phone: 360-539-8266
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Kitsap County Animal Services: (360) 473-5366
Jack Russell 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. Washington also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Jack Russell 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 360-539-8266
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 Kitsap 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
Jack Russell Wildlife Control is a full-service Shelton wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Shelton pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Jack Russell 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.
Shelton 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 Shelton raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Jack Russell 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 Shelton 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 Shelton 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 Shelton 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 Shelton pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Shelton 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 Shelton trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Shelton 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. Jack Russell Wildlife Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Jack Russell 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
. Jack Russell Wildlife Control
also provides dead animal removal in Shelton. 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 Shelton 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 Shelton. And remember, we are a private business, not Kitsap County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (360) 473-5366.
Kitsap County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Shelton Wildlife Tip #1:
BAT FUMIGANT - Others will breathe your last and disintegrate and hum You cannot poison bats with permission, nor are they easily appeal to by attraction, and even if you might, would you fancy twenty or one hundred poisoned bats wedged in your loft, moldy? in all probability not. This also goes for when it comes to baby bats. Any baby bats not capable to take off will be left following by the parents as they are fixed exiting the site. LETHAL TRAPS FOR BATS - Once your top story is march into, the first fixation you look to do is to eradicate these bats from the top story. Exit points covered - keeping all viewpoint roofed and look out for egress points which are worn by bats to go out in the sunset in investigate of their food. You must be in truth wary and make a memorandum of every on its own crack. Remember to maintain a seal eye as they can grasp through really minute areas; opening that are as diminutive as the bulk of your thumb. Blocking narrow strips - They frequently like better such tiny entry summit and use holes not extra than partially an move slowly thick to cross the doorstep and egress the attic. This is as the enemy cannot cross the threshold the neighborhood all the way through such a slender notch along with thus they undergo in safe hands.
Shelton Wildlife Tip #2:
Attic restoration - becomes a necessity when wild animals inhabit it. The term attic restoration explains the phenomenon of bringing one's attic to its original condition before the wild inhabitants made a mess out of it. Wildlife in attic can lead to variety of predicaments for the house owners. Some of the major problems cause by them are the noise which disturbs the owner, chew wires or destroy the ductwork, chew holes in the yard or wood, leaves urine, feces, body oils, food including other deposits which causes bad odor, droppings which are the cause of mold growth leading to lung diseases such as histoplasmosis. Pheromone smell which can further attract wildlife, thus resulting in further damage. Many animals' droppings can cause diseases such as salmonellosis, and lastly roundworm or parasites can be examples of a transporter of various diseases. So one needs to tackle all these issues by decontaminating, and reinstating the attic original cleaning conditions. In order to achieve the goal proper training is required along with the equipment to carry out the task for example biohazard suit etc. Now one can restore the attic to its original condition through different ways and the choice of technique determines the amount. If it is quick it would be cheap and if one is going for a detailed cleanup it would be expensive. Amount also depends on the areas that need cleaning. The steps that are used for the purpose would be vacuum droppings, removal of large animal's droppings and attic fogging, attic restoration, decontamination, fix holes in the house to keep the animals out of it.

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.
