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.

Fairbanks Wildlife Removal Tip: What is an Alaskan Brown Bearís natural diet, and how does it get its food? If you spot a Alaskan Brown Bear in your garden, itís 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 youíd 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. Thatís when youíll likely spot them if youíve 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 thatís enticing the Alaskan Brown Bear, you are more likely to see it during the day.
Fairbanks Animal News Clip: Remembering Alaska's World Record raccoon
On the morning of Thursday, March 17th, a critter trapper named the bat and bird control authority quietly slipped into a small, triangular patch of woods near the right-angle intersection of two dirt roads. He took a stand next to a large elm not far from a wooden line of trees that ran from one road to the other. Wildlife trapping conditions were perfect. The area was cloaked in a heavy mist, the kind big male raccoons love to sneak around in. The bat and bird control authority barely had time to pick his spot before he heard a noise coming from toward the road, and he wondered what the heck it could be. Read on for more information about animal control in Fairbanks, Alaska.
"I took a peak around the elm, and there he came - slipping through the wild plum sprouts and sumac bushes with his head down. He had so much fur that I couldn't distinguish him from the bushes. My heart started pounding so hard I thought he must be deaf not to hear it," the bat and bird control authority recalled. "He walked up to the wooden barrier and stopped behind some brush not 20 feet away. I was behind the tree, and he couldn't see me trembling. I could have tried to catch it through a small opening in the brush at that time, but the experience of four previous misses had taught me that it was simply too risky. I waited and waited for at least four or five seconds. Despite this there is no free Fairbanks animal services for wildlife in Fairbanks County.
"He just sort of melted over the wooden barrier with no effort. My cage trap was already in position, and all I had to do was pull it back. When I did, he stopped and looked straight at me at a distance of 19 steps. He was already beginning to whirl around and go back into the brush as I released." the bat and bird control authority waited a half-hour and then eased back to the truck. He met Bob a few minutes later and showed him the male raccoon's enormous tracks in the road crossing. The bat and bird control authority returned four hours later with friends, and they soon found the male raccoon. He'd gone less than 160 yards. "He weighed 22.4 pounds field dressed," the bat and bird control authority beamed. "I couldn't have planned a more perfect ending to any season, because this is also the record weight of the largest raccoon, which is considered a lesser record compared to my raccoon.
This trophy had an almost perfectly symmetrical backside, and at 30 inches long he was an easy nuisance wildlife control world record. His mark fell three years later, when Skipper Johnson baited and trapped his 31-inch raccoon in Alaska. That male raccoon remains No. 1 in the record books. Most Fairbanks pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
In 1997, Curt Cobain baited trapped a huge 11-pounder in Alaska, tying the bat and bird control authority's male raccoon for No. 2 in P&Y. Their raccoon still share that spot, though they figure to drop with confirmation of the 32-inch Gordon Butler's male raccoon, taken in Fairbanks last fall. Oh, what an animal.
The bat and bird control authority kept wildlife trapping for many seasons after downing his Alaska record. He was often asked how it felt to have to settle for catching male raccoons smaller than one he'd already taken. "Every raccoon is a new experience," the bat and bird control authority would reply. "And every trapped is a challenge. Not every raccoon will make the top of the record book, but they all make my book - wildlife trapping pleasure!"
