Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Spanaway, WA

Spanaway Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Spanaway 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 Spanaway, and I recommend the following:

US Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 253-843-6399

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Pierce County Animal Services: (253) 798-7387



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 253-843-6399 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 Pierce 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 Spanaway wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Spanaway 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.

  Spanaway 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 Spanaway 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 Spanaway 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 Spanaway 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 Spanaway 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 Spanaway pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Spanaway 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 Spanaway trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Spanaway 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. 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. US Wildlife Removal also provides dead animal removal in Spanaway. 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 Spanaway 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 Spanaway. And remember, we are a private business, not Pierce County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (253) 798-7387. Pierce County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Spanaway Wildlife Tip #1:
An animal died inside your air conditioning

It's a horrifying thought, but it's a problem that many homeowners face, your air conditioning system has been clogged by a dead animal. Now a foul stench is spread all over the home, and it must be fixed so you can live properly. The good news is that the area can be cleaned and the odor removed. The bad news are that it won't be easy, and you may want to think about professional help before you get into it.

Locating the carcass of the dead animal

If you decided that you are going to be the person that is going to remove the dead animal Good. Now prepare a pair of gloves, a plastic bag or two, and a disinfectant and just follow your nose. Try all of the rooms and search for the room in which the stench is the strongest. You will know immediately when you find the spot, because the smell will be likely overwhelming because the smell of a rotting carcass seeps through the walls, boards etc.

Steps to remove the dead animal

1. Unscrew you air ducts and try to remove any valuable objects beneath it, as It may be dusty and filthy.
2. Get up close and use your nose to see if you can identify the smell and where it is coming from.

Outsourcing the problem to the pros

Simply calling a wildlife removal service will most likely do the trick. If they don't have a dead animal removal service, they will be the one that know the details of the ones who do. It will take a little more time and some money, but it will fix your problem.

Spanaway 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.

You can always call US Wildlife Removal, any time of day, at 253-843-6399, for a price quote for Spanaway wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Spanaway, WA.
