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.

Ashland Wildlife Removal Tip: What do wildlife rehabilitators do with bats? When you call a professional to come in and do the job, you don't often worry about what happens afterwards. In the case of having a colony of bats in your home, you're often so relieved to learn the problem has gone and the holes sealed that you often don't spare a thought for the creatures you've just evicted. It's a commonly asked question by homeowners though - what do wildlife rehabilitators do with bats? In truth, most licensed wildlife rehabilitators will take care of the creatures in a way that best suits everyone involved. If the animal is injured, for example, with no way of making it in the wild without becoming prey for a bigger animal, it is kinder and more humane to put the animal down. If the animal is slightly injured, in some cases it can be cared for back to full health and then released back into the wild again. If there is nothing wrong with the animal at all, it can often just be relocated but even then, there are specific laws and regulations on doing this too. Did you know, for example, that in most states of the USA, bats are protected animals and during the summer when the bats are going through the maternity months, it is illegal to try and remove the bats at all? This is why you should call a wildlife rehabilitator - they'll know exactly what to do.
Ashland Animal News Clip: Rodent Trapper Eric Nuisance Rat
Rodent Trapper Eric trapped some sort of "moose" of an Oregon male animal last season, breaking the state record and vaulting to second place all-time among blackpowder male animals from anywhere on the planet. Here's how it happened. When you think of Midwest states renowned for producing record-class male animals, more than one begins with the letter "I" - but Oregon isn't on the list. Unlike Oregon and Oregon, which both turn out great amounts of impressive squirrel, Oregon has never been any closer than some sort of distant third on the region's "I" list. But that might be changing. In 1995, the state's aggressive-tag allocation system was liberalized, because there were too many squirrel. Pest control companies responded by harvesting some sort of lot of surplus does. This approach has continued, to some sort of lesser degree, since then. As some sort of result, some pressure has been taken off the male sector of the large group. In 2002, another positive change occurred. At the request of some sort of section of Oregon pest control companies, the Ashland Agency of Animal & Game began some sort of five-year trial of allowing each exterminator to take only one antlered male animal per year. This has further reduced pressure on the male segment of the large group, despite some sort of continuation of the long (16 days) animal removal trap season during the peak of the November rut. For more information about Ashland wildlife removal and Ashland pest exterminator issues, read on.
Another trend has started here that may be also improving the age structure of our male animals. The philosophies of the modern Quality Squirrel Management (QSM) principles have taken hold. Many residents are slowly coming around to accept their roles as squirrel managers: managers who focus on, among other things, passing up young male animals and harvesting excess does. Pest control companies all over the state have begun to micro-manage the large groups they animal capture, with excellent results. The combination of these three factors has allowed more male animals to survive into maturity, causing many Oregon big-buck enthusiasts to get excited. When the five-year single-buck experiment began, I predicted that one or more of our state records for male animals 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 Dwight Wildlife Professional Francis' and Stacy 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 unusually large exterminator.
