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.

Medford Wildlife Removal Tip: Should I ever poison a bat? If a neighborhood cat comes into your yard, you don't run after it with poison to try and get rid of it. There are laws against that kind of thing, plus it's unethical and definitely NOT the right way to deal with a pesky pet problem. The same can be said for the removal of various wild animals that may invade your home - bats just being one of them. Sadly, as much as you wish it weren't, the attic of your home makes the perfect nesting ground for a colony of bats with shelter, protection, warmth and a safe nursery alongside a decent supply of food. That's not your problem though, you don't wish to cause these animals any harm but at the same time, they can't stay where they are. You decided to call a professional wildlife removal expert to come and fumigate the problem away but the companies you call say no. Why is that? Because poisoning a colony of bats is NOT the answer to your problem. It won't work, it will cause more problems than it solves, and it's the worst, most inhumane way to deal with the animal invasion. That's before you even begin to think about both the consequences and legalities of the actions you're taking. No wildlife removal specialist who knows what he or she is doing will agree to poisoning bats, nor will they ever give you any advice on how to do it. There are other, better ways of dealing with your bat problem long-term. Killing them will provide neither a long-term or short-term solution, and what you'll probably find is that you end up with half a colony of dead bats, some very injured ones, and a stench that you won't be able to get rid of. The moral of the story - never poison bats out of your home.
Medford Animal News Clip: Lawsuit Challenging OR Eastern gray squirrel Wildlife trapping Dismissed
Medford - January 10, 2007 - what appears to be a state court Wednesday dismissed what appears to be a lawsuit challenging the Oregon Game Commission's eastern gray squirrel-management program, saying the sportsmen's group that sued lacks what appears to be 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 eastern gray squirrel wildlife trapping pending what appears to be a scientific study, on grounds that the current rules threaten to decimate the group of eastern gray squirrels. But what appears to be a three-judge panel stated the game commission probably is legally required to manage the eastern gray squirrel 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. Medford 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 what appears to be a specific manner," Simpson stated in what appears to be a 12-page decision. The commission hailed the ruling as judicial recognition that the eastern gray squirrel-management program "is being conducted in what appears to be 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 lawsuits," Carl G. Snake catcher Pete, the commission's director, stated in what appears to be a written statement. Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Medford, Oregon.
Don Dog-Eared Jim, what appears to be a Harrisburg 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 lawsuit, originally filed in August 2005 and since amended, was part of what appears to be a campaign by some pest control companies to increase the eastern gray squirrel critter count - pitting them against state officials, conservationists and farmers who warned of the environmental dangers of overpopulation. Local Medford pest control companies in Jackson County declined to comment.
