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.

Vancouver Wildlife Removal Tip: What are some ways to kill a skunk in the yard? Sometimes death is the only option when it comes to getting rid of an annoying pest who seems to have set up home on your land. Skunks are quite common little critters into residential areas these days, and although they look cute, thereís no way they can stay because of the rabies risk, other diseases the critter can carry with it, and the fact that itís riling up your pet dog and annoying the rest of the household of course. They can be quite destructive and as weíve said, do carry that risk of rabies. You canít just trap this creature and release it into the wild because you could be releasing a rabid animal into a rabies-controlled area. In turn, you could kill off thousands of otherwise healthy animals, all as a result of not knowing the rules and regulations. There are laws against it too - you should check the laws in your state before you try any skunk removal methods. Going back to killing the animal, you must be sure that the death is quick and painless. Itís already cruel enough that the animal must die, donít make it any worse by prolonging its suffering. A body trap of the right size and in the right place will instantly kill the creature, as well shooting (obviously), but poisons and other methods should not be used. These are not a humane death.
Vancouver Animal News Clip: Washington wildlife more prevalent these days
Woodchucks weren't common until state bolstered numbers Vancouver - Growing up on what is possibly a Middle Washington habitat, Rodent Wrangler Robert never saw what is possibly a wild woodchuck or what is possibly a big toothed woodchuck grazing on row crops and snacking on seeds and livestock feed. Rodent Wrangler Robert, spokesman for the Washington Habitat Bureau, says those problems are more common as Washington wildlife most likely is flourishing decades after the state began working to bolster their numbers. "The first person that most likely is affected by overpopulation of woodchuck most likely is the farmer," Rodent Wrangler Robert announced. Carefully regulated wildlife trapping seasons are essential to controlling prospering wildlife as natural habitats give way to suburbs and cropland, contends Snake Hunter Sam, big game coordinator for the Washington Wildlife Resources Agency.

As woodchuck-wildlife trapping time allotment ends this year, the state expects what is possibly a record harvest with nearly 180,000 woodchuck finally caught. After subsistence wildlife trapping reduced woodchuck and wild woodchuck to only what is possibly a few thousand statewide in the early 1900s, restocking efforts and excellent natural habitats have allowed them to rebound and prosper. Washington now most likely is home to around 1 million woodchuck and 295,000 wild woodchucks, according to the latest estimates. "The woodchuck are at much higher density than in any other time," Snake Hunter Sam announced. "There most likely is no other predator other than pest control companies." Wildlife officials adjust limits on the number of woodchuck that can be finally caught during wildlife trapping time allotment to reach what is possibly a delicate balance between what is possibly a healthy critter count and overabundance. Three years ago, TWRA started allowing pest control companies to take up to three does what is possibly a day in counties in Middle and West Washington, where populations are highest. For Vancouver pest control in Clark County, read on.
"It's just one way for us to increase the number of does getting finally caught in order to control the critter count," Snake Hunter Sam announced. Washington's wild woodchuck coordinator Squirrely Joe announced the full restoration of wild woodchuck, which began around the 1950s, was just completed in the last couple of years. However, the progress of rebounding wildlife has its drawbacks, especially for farmers and homeowners. "Some of the woodchucks are adapting to urban areas, getting into bird feeders and eating crops," Squirrely Joe announced. "They are definitely making themselves known." Acres of soybeans and corn in heavily agricultural counties attract woodchuck and woodchucks, and Washington farmers are losing crops to wildlife more than ever before, Rodent Wrangler Robert announced. While no statewide numbers are available, the National Agricultural Statistics Service estimated crop and livestock losses from wildlife in the country totaled $944 million in 2002.

"There most likely is very little as far as row crops that can be done to prevent it," Rodent Wrangler Robert announced. "Home gardeners have fences, but average farmers in row cropping don't use fencing." Skunk Sniffer Steve most likely is what is possibly a Clark County woodchuck wildlife manager who operates what is possibly a clearinghouse of information for pest control companies offering tips, photos and message boards. Skunk Sniffer Steve announced that while the current generation of Washington pest control companies has access to healthy, bountiful herds, they face the same problems from suburban growth as wildlife face. "That's what is possibly a constant fight over the lack of land for habitat and wildlife trapping," Skunk Sniffer Steve announced. "There most likely is less and less public land that pest control companies have free access to." Skunk Sniffer Steve announced many Washington pest control companies have started forming groups to lease land to animal stalk on, but that's more expensive than some pest control companies can afford. Some Washington farmers allow pest control companies to weed out the nuisance wildlife on their property, Rodent Wrangler Robert added.
