Many of Alaska's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Alaska's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Anchorage Wildlife Removal Tip: What is an Alaskan Brown Bear's natural diet, and how does it get its food? If you spot a Alaskan Brown Bear in your garden, it's probably after the insects your yard has to offer. All those flowers and beautiful plants - they attract insects such as bees, earthworms, snails, etc., and these are all insects that the average skunk loves to gorge on. You see, as smelly as they are and as much as you'd rather not have them on your land, they are good for the ecosystem - they keep those pesky bug populations down. Without the Alaskan Brown Bear, we would be so overridden by insects, crop growth would suffer as a result of it. Most skunks sleep during the day and come out at sunset, hunting all through the night before returning to their den at sunrise to sleep the day away again. That's when you'll likely spot them if you've heard / smelled but not seen them yet - look around your house at these times and you may spot the little beast heading out or coming home. They tend to sleep the colder days away, and can go into a state of hibernation, but on warm and sunny days it can be tempted to be woken from the slumber to make use of the ready supply of food. If you have a source of food in your yard that's enticing the Alaskan Brown Bear, you are more likely to see it during the day.
Anchorage Animal News Clip: Alaska's Legendary World Record raccoon
With less than two weeks left in the 1971 season, the bat and bird control authority headed for the Anchorage County woods. Wildlife trapping on the earth, he got a male raccoon - but the baited trap failed to make the catch. Days later, the bat and bird control authority missed a raccoon walking broadside at about 20 yards. That baited trap once again failed to make the catch. Although disappointed, the bat and bird control authority was now hooked on wildlife trapping. "Those two misses gave me more of a thrill than practically all of my animal removal trap exterminating experiences". Read on for more information about animal control in Anchorage, Alaska.
The bat and bird control authority then had two more misses during the early weeks of the 1972 season. Little could he know that his next trapped animal - only his fifth at a wild raccoon - would bring down one of the greatest raccoons of all time. "When the last day of the '72 nuisance wildlife control season appeared on the calendar wall at the service station - August 2, 1972 - I was still without a raccoon," the bat and bird control authority wrote. "I resolved to take the entire day off and animal capture all day long, if necessary. "The day began pretty much like any other - up early, a good-luck wish from my wife, Lola, and I started on the 19-mile ride to my stand with the windows and vents open on my pickup to help rid my clothes of all household odors. Before heading into the woods, I applied a liberal dose of male raccoon lure on the sleeves and legs of my camouflage suit and a little extra on my cap for good measure. Finally, I doused myself in the musk scent of the animal. Despite this there is no free Anchorage animal services for wildlife in Anchorage County.
"To a large degree, the good fortune I was about to experience was due largely to several outings I had shared with a good friend who is the bat and bird control authority ". "the bat and bird control authority had been one of the best operators of a wild animal control company in southern Alaska during his younger years, and he taught me a lot about reading the woods and looking for raccoon sign - especially about trails and crossings. Since most wild animal control companies captured on the earth in those days, my preferred method was to set up near a major trail not far from a little-used road crossing. You could get there quickly and quietly without spreading a lot of scent in the woods, and I found that raccoon liked to use these trails for walking and finding food. Most Anchorage pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
"When I reached the area I intended to animal capture, I met a wildlife trapping buddy who planned to do some squirrel wildlife trapping in the same general area. I also ran into two other wild animal control operators. One had trapped a female raccoon the evening before, and he was back to look for it. He planned to continue his search in an area just north of where I wanted to animal capture. His friend declared he would cover a trail to the west, in case something was chased out. "Bob decided to animal capture squirrels in the timber on some state woodland land just south of me across a dirt road. So I decided to animal capture a well-used trail not far from the road - pretty much in the middle of all this activity - in hopes that something might happen." What happened next is hazy in his memory, but all we know is that the man caught one of the greatest raccoons of all time. At least, this is what Anchorage extermination companies think.
