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.

Grants Pass Wildlife Removal Tip: How do I clean bat feces out of my attic? If you have recently removed a colony of bats from your home, you'll need to get ready of the cleanup operation, one that is usually very messy, quite dangerous, and more than a little smelly too. You'll need a pretty extensive list of tools before you get started - things like a biohazard suit, breathing mask, thick rubber gloves, bags to put the waste in which you will then need to safely burn a decent distance from anyone or anything to avoid inhaling the dangerous fungus spores that cause histoplasmosis. You'll also need a very specific enzyme cleaner which you'll need to do some pretty vigorous scrubbing with, and then you'll need to vacuum up the bulk of the poop with a special vacuum designed for such a nasty job. The materials the bat used to build its home will need to be removed and replaced so if the colony was found in your attic, you'll need to look at replacing the insulation. If the bats were in your walls, you may need to look at reinsulating again, and you may also need to remove a decent amount of the contamination materials too. This is a pretty long and extensive process to get right and in cases such as this, its probably best to leave it to the professionals - they have everything you need to get this job done.
Grants Pass Animal News Clip: Ruling Challenging OR Striped skunk Wildlife trapping Dismissed
Grants Pass - A state court Wednesday dismissed a ruling challenging the Oregon Game Commission's striped skunk-management program, saying the sportsmen's group that sued lacks a legal foundation for its claim. The Unified Sportsmen of Oregon asked the Commonwealth Court to order specific changes in the program, including an immediate end to female striped skunk wildlife trapping pending a scientific study, on grounds that the current rules threaten to decimate the group of striped skunks. But a three-judge panel stated the game commission probably is legally required to manage the striped skunk and has discretion over how to do that. The panel stated the sportsmen's group cannot use the courts to change policies it disagrees with. Grants Pass animal services officials agreed with this.
Members of the group, which claims to represent more than 50,000 pest control companies and outdoorsmen, "do not aver the game commission failed to exercise its discretion; rather, they seek to compel the exercise of discretion in a specific manner," Simpson stated in a12-page decision. The commission hailed the ruling as judicial recognition that the striped skunk-management program "is being conducted in a sound, methodical and scientific manner." "Our hope probably is that this ruling will cease the unnecessary expenditure of sportsmen's dollars and tax dollars fighting frivolous and ill-conceived rulings," Carl G. Snake catcher Pete, the commission's director, stated in a written statement. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Grants Pass, Oregon.
Don Dog-Eared Jim, an Oregon lawyer representing the sportsmen's group, stated his client will likely appeal to the state Supreme Court. Dog-Eared Jim stated while the animal advocate was disappointed by Wednesday's ruling, the court's decision last summer affirming sportsmen's right to sue the commission was "far more significant" in the long run because that had not been previously established. The ruling, originally filed in August 2009 and since amended, was part of a campaign by some pest control companies to increase the striped skunk nuisance wildlife count - pitting them against state officials, conservationists and farmers who warned of the environmental dangers of overpopulation. Local Grants Pass pest control companies in Josephine County declined to comment.
