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

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Linn county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Albany Corvallis animal control for wildlife issues.

Albany Corvallis Wildlife Removal Tip: How you can tell that there is opossum under the porch or shed

Opossums prefer to live under the deck or in a shed instead of in nature. This is because of the food sources that we humans create for them. This makes it so easy for them and so they will hang out around us for as long as they can access the free food easily. They are wanderers and if you find one in your home, they must have a very good reason. The creatures are opportunistic and can eat about anything. This includes compost piles, gardens and even items in garbage cans. They can find a safe place where they can live and be near the food source, and this can include areas such as under the porch or shed.

When you have opossum under the porch or shed, any pets you may have are exposed to danger. A cornered opossum can actually bite and the jaws are well packed with teeth. When startled, the opossum may faint and this lasts for hours and most often you will assume that itís dead and try to move it by hand. It can cause severe injury if it awakes as you handle it. When you find that these creatures are within the home, the best thing is to deal with them as soon as possible before the problem elevates further.

One of the best things that you can do is to make sure that the food supply is completely eliminated from the home. Secure the garbage cans and have a regular garbage collection schedule. Seal off the deck or the shed to keep the animals out.

You can eliminate the animals by trapping them. They love to scavenge and so this removal shouldnít be too difficult.

The telltale signs

The first sign is a restless night sleep. This is because the opossums are nocturnal and they do hunting, gathering and eating in the dead of night. They sleep in the daytime. For many people, this isnít a good thing. The opossum antics around and in the home are the first signs that there is an infestation.

The other thing that you can notice is droppings all around the backyard or compound. The droppings of the opossum arenít that hard to identify. You can find them all over the furniture and tables placed outdoors. You may also find them around the areas where they hide.

A rotting fruit smell is another sign you are near the nest as food starts to rot. If you notice these signs, you may want to contact a wildlife removal expert.
