Many of Washington'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 Washington'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 Pierce 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 Dupont animal control for wildlife issues.

Dupont Wildlife Removal Tip: Will a bat in the attic have a nest of babies? In the summer months, yes. It’s not really a nest, but more of a colony of baby bats, one to each female. Although it is not guaranteed, there is a pretty high chance that any bat you see in your attic is part of a colony, usually a mating colony of females with babies reared in nests. This is even more so the case during the warmer months of the year when the babies are first born, late May to July time, when they are at their most vulnerable, still relying on their mothers for food, protecting and warmth. It is rare for there to be just one bat in the attic and if you take a peek outside your home at around sunset, you’ll usually spot a few more. One is normally an indication of many. Most female bats only have one baby at a time, two at a push, but some colonies of bats can reach hundreds and even thousands of members, meaning double or treble that when you start to include the youngsters in that number too. Although one bat can just be one bat, there are usually quite a few more in tow!

Dupont Animal News Clip: Gopher- the enchantment of North American wildlife - Gopher is one name used prominently with respect to the North American Wildlife. Over the passage of time, experts have deduced that there are basically two primary species of gopher, but some other animals too are classified under the ‘Gopher’ title. Let's find more on it.

As hinted above, there are certain variations in the species of Gopher; the appearance is also a subject of dire variations. A pocket gopher is usually found in brown color entirely or with a blend of white sometimes. These gophers have hairy bodies and are rich in fur. Size again can be a matter of disparity, but overall they are believed to be of a ‘smaller scale’ of animals. The average size could range from 13 to 15 cm in length. The weight too is on a lighter side. According to a research conducted in North America on all the species of gopher, experts confirmed that the weight of gopher ranges from 200 to 250 grams- quite astounding. Their faces are quite bulbous in nature and the extra long nose adds to their identification.

Frankly speaking, gopher is certainly one of the most fascinating species of animals out there in North America. Being too small in size, one would wonder at their feeding pattern. Gopher, as ostensible belongs to the kingdom of Animilia; however the class they belong to is called being ‘Mammalian’. Over the past few decades there were quite conflicts over their Genus. However after the above mentioned research it has been confirmed that most varieties of Genus belongs to Spermophilus. These are mammals, and hence reproduce sexually, at a relatively slower rate (this is one reason why their species are considered to be endangered and governments in North America are paying special heed to their protection.)

Life cycle
The most certain thing about the life cycle of gopher has to be their average life expectancy. The range lies from 10 to 12 years which is considerably greater considering their feeding patterns, however seeming with the way they their lives with exceedingly less levels of activity (they are called ‘retiring’ animals. The most striking thing about their life cycle is the fact they reach their ‘puberty’ when just 3 months old. Males’ rate of puberty is far greater than the females.

Over the passage of time there has been some slight amendment in the preferences of living places with regard to all species of Gopher. Although they love to live in Woodlands, today they are more concentrated in Tropical Rainforests. These forests are not in as large amount in North America and hence the most feared extinction! Grass plains and simple grasslands are also the most favored habitats of gophers.

Most people mistake them to be herbivores, while other falsely believes them to carnivores. In reality all kinds of gopher, including pocket gopher are proven to be omnivores. To be an omnivore means that the animal feed not only the plants but also on the other animals. However roots and leaves remain their most favorite ‘cuisine’ to the date, with occasional feeding of insects and other smaller animals. Remember, they are not all-aggressive when it comes to feeding.

A hinted above, gopher is considered to be a rather ‘lazy’ or ‘shy’ animal. This is on the account of lack of activity they show during their life cycle. They have a relatively good track record when escaping predators.
