Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing University Place, WA

University Place Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your University Place 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 University Place, 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 University Place wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular University Place 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.

  University Place 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 University Place 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 University Place 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 University Place 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 University Place 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 University Place pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is University Place 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 University Place trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a University Place 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 University Place. 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 University Place 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 University Place. 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.

University Place Wildlife Tip #1:
What to do if you have a dead animal under your house

The first thing that will usually give you the impression of a dead animal in your house is the smell, or if you can actually see the dead animal. Don't think that the stench will go away with time, because the more it stays the worse it will smell because of the gradually rotting carcass. The stench isn't your only problem, rotting carcasses usually attract the following:

1. Parasites
2. Rats
3. Cockroaches
4. Flies
5. Fleas
6. Other scavenging animals may find one of the above tasty, so them too.

So in order to prevent other animals from inhabiting your house in the future you should assess your situation quickly and solve your problem once and for all.

Doing it yourself

If you want to get your hands dirty and deal with the aforementioned problem by yourself then you should first locate the dead animal. This will most likely not be the easiest thing you've done, because animals that tend to live under your house will find any sweet spots, like holes and cracks in your insulation. Before you tear down all of the insulation, try locating the carcass going for the smell, or try to locate any flies, or saggy spots on the insulation. Open your eyes wider and look carefully because the flies around the carcass are surely there. Locating the animal should be the hardest part, the next is to get rid of the carcass by using safety gloves. You should clean everything that was in touch with the animal with bleach and water.

You can't find the carcass?

If you're can't find the carcass there are many options that may prevent the smell from spreading , these include various types of chemicals and agents that you can get from the store or order online, these products should be sprayed on the area or hung up.

Professional help

In some cases you are not going to want to do this by yourself, which is totally fine because you may lack the skills or the time to do so. Hiring a professional dead animal cleaner should do the job.

University Place 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 University Place wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in University Place, WA.
