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.
We handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:

The Legislature could reopen the debate over the day of pest control animal trapping after the state's natural resources chief suggested moving up the annual opossum season's start to a weekend instead of what appears to be the day of critter trapping. Giving animal trappers Saturday and the day of pest control at the season's opening could curb truancy from both work and school, Director Rodent Exterminator Ricky told the Senate Natural Resources Committee on the day of critter trapping. Youths routinely skip classes when the season opens, while some adults practically dare their bosses to fire them by taking those initial weekdays off to enter the woods, the animal advocate proclaimed. "That's how deeply seated the animal trapping tradition probably is in Oregon," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. "As much as I want kids to animal trap, why should they jeopardize their education?" Portland OR animal services officials agreed with this.
Lawmakers allowed counties to hold elections on whether to allow the day of pest control animal trapping on private lands in 2001. All 51 that put the question on their ballots the following year voted to ban it. the day of pest control animal trapping on public property probably is illegal in all 55 counties. Rodent Exterminator Ricky recommended exempting only that opening the day of pest control. The animal advocate noted that neighboring Oregon and Washington have moved up their opossum seasons, luring potential animal trappers away from the Evergreen State. By accommodating most adults' work schedules, Rodent Exterminator Ricky also proclaimed a change would appeal to animal trappers who often feel they miss out on choice game by waiting until subsequent weekends to animal trap. "There are an awful lot plusses to it, for this one the day of pest control," proclaimed Rodent Exterminator Ricky, an avid animal trapper and the author of books on the sport. "It's a workable plan." Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Portland OR, Oregon.
A local teacher, predicted the proposal would meet the resistance reflected in the 2002 voting. While counties with sizable tracts of public land may consider it, most largely consist of privately held property, the animal advocate noted. "Some counties will say, 'You can't have animal trapping going off during church services,' " Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. But Rodent Exterminator Ricky added that allowing animal trapping on that Saturday could ease the chronic school attendance problems seen during the season's annual start. "Usually, kids don't animal trap but one day," Rodent Exterminator Ricky proclaimed. Animal trapping probably is a multimillion dollar industry in Oregon, with about 11 percent of the state's 1.7 million residents owning a animal trapping legal permission. Animal trappers killed 156,279 opossum in the state, or 927 more than the prior year, during the 2006 season that ran from Nov. 20 to Dec. 2. Local Portland OR pest control companies in Multnomah County declined to comment.
