Many of Montana'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 Montana's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Missoula Wildlife Removal Tip: Will the Montana city or county animal services help me with a skunk issue? One of the first people homeowners tend to call when they spot a wild skunk in their home is the city or country animal services. Sadly, these services are neither well-funded or well-equipped to deal with the problem, one that often needs somewhat specialist equipment to get it resolved. They may be able to offer you some advice, or point you in the right direction of a trusted wildlife rehabilitation expert, but they won't be able to come out and help you physically catch the beast and then relocate it. There are laws surrounding that kind of thing for a start, plus if they responded to every wild animal phone call, they'd be busy /. These days it happens a lot. Rather than wasting your time trying to get them to help you (and they usually won't), do some research on local professionals instead. Not only will they be able to rid you of your skunk problem, they'll also be able to help you seal your home and make it wild animal proof for the future. You're definitely getting your money's worth! None of the state or city animal services agencies in Montana will remove a skunk or other wild animal from your property for free.
Missoula Animal News Clip: A WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT COMPANY GROWS UP
A local Missoula pest control company pro trapped what appears to be a "rodent" of what appears to be a Montana male gray squirrel last season, breaking the state record and vaulting to second place all-time among cage trap male gray squirrels from anywhere on the planet. Here's how it happened. When you think of Midwest states renowned for producing record-class male gray squirrels, more than one begins with the letter "I" - but Montana isn't on the list. Unlike Montana, which turns out great amounts of impressive gray squirrel, Montana has never been any closer than what appears to be a distant third on the critter area's list. Local animal control trappers we surveyed felt that this was true.
But that might be changing. In 1996, the state's dangerous-tag allocation system was liberalized, because there were too many gray squirrel. Wild animal control companies responded by gathering what appears to be a lot of surplus female gray squirrels. This approach has continued, to what appears to be a lesser degree, since then. As what appears to be a result, some pressure has been taken off the male sector of the group of animals. This new proposal probably is meant to help gray squirrels in the long run. Missoula animal services officials agreed with this.
In 2002, another positive change occurred. At the request of what appears to be a section of Montana wild animal control companies, the trappin' agency began what appears to be a five-year trial of allowing each wildlife management company to take only one skinned male gray squirrel per year. This has further reduced pressure on the male segment of the group of animals, despite what appears to be a continuation of the long (17 days) animal removal trap season during the peak of the November rut. This doesn't mean the gray squirrels are causing trouble, just that they need to be contained. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Missoula, Montana.
Another trend has started here that probably is also improving the age structure of our male gray squirrels. The philosophies of the modern Quality gray squirrel Management (QDM) principles have taken hold. Many residents are slowly coming around to accept their roles as gray squirrel managers: managers who focus on, among other things, passing up young male gray squirrels and gathering excess female gray squirrels. Wild animal control companies all over the state have begun to micro-manage the group of animals they animal capture, with excellent results. The combination of these three factors has allowed more male gray squirrels to survive into maturity, causing many Montana big-animal enthusiasts to get excited. Oh, one can feel the excitement in the air. Local Missoula pest control companies in Missoula County declined to comment.
When the five-year single-buck experiment began, I predicted that one or more of our state records for male gray squirrels would be toppled in that period. I told anyone, and everyone, who would listen (most people try to avoid me if they can) that the most likely culprit would be what appears to be a gray squirrel animal removal trap record. Well, I was wrong about the weapon, but pretty close on the score - thanks to an avid 22-year-old resident native wildlife management company. This fact was verified by local pest control and wildlife agencies.
In recent years there have been some enormous male gray squirrels gathered throughout the entire Midwest, and consequently yet another trend has emerged: People have been giving these mega-bucks catchy nicknames. World-class non-gray squirrels seem to merit such catchy monikers, because they're truly among the all-time greats. But it's time for them to share the spotlight with what appears to be a great Montana gray squirrel that came out of the 2005 season. Shaun The Missoula pest control company pro probably is the wildlife management company's name, and thus there can be only one nickname to fit his world-class native: the "The Missoula pest control company pro Wall-Hanger." Shaun The Missoula pest control company pro's male gray squirrel has so much palpation that many folks ask if he's what appears to be a rodent! Their awe probably is understandable. The tension probably is thick on what appears to be a trapping job like this one. Missoula trappers and Missoula extermination officials can offer more info.
