FAQ For Wildlife Trapping and Removal
Dealing with nuisance wildlife is probably not something that the average person has to deal with often. When it does happen, a lot of questions are likely to come up. We are always happy to answer all of your questions regarding trapping and removing nuisance wildlife from your property when you contact us, but in the meantime, we have provided some of our most commonly asked questions below.
We service all of the Portland Metro area, including SW Washington. This includes all of Multnomah County, Clackamas, County, Washington County and Clark County. In some situations, we can service outlying areas, including parts of Marion County and Yamhill County.
What is the process for getting rid of my wildlife issue?
When dealing with nature, it really depends on your specific situation. Most situations can be resolved by setting traps for nuisance wildlife and coming back to remove them once they are trapped. However, there are many situations where we apply a different approach, such as wildlife exclusions and/ or repellents to address the problem. It really depends on what you are dealing with.
Do you remove dead animals?
Yes, we do remove dead animals from your property for a charge. If you are wanting to remove a dead animal from a public street, please call your local county animal control.
How much does it cost to get rid of nuisance wildlife?
Depending on what type of nuisance wildlife you are dealing with, our pricing typically ranges from $88 to $176 for most initial visits. For example, if we set traps for nuisance wildlife on your property, our price is generally around $176 for the initial visit and then about $65 per return visit. However, we do not charge for our initial inspection if you would like to have someone just come out, assess the situation and provide you with an exact price, we would be happy to do so.
What happens after you set traps?
We ask you to help us monitor them. You will be given a direct phone number to your technician and can call that number as soon as you see that an animal has been caught and we will promptly come to pick it up.
What do you do with the animals after they are caught?
It depends on the animal. We must follow the laws set forth by the Department of Fish and Wildlife. For some species, we are allowed to release off site, but for others we are required to humanely euthanize them.
What if my house has been damaged by nuisance wildlife?
We are licensed, bonded and insured and can handle just about any repairs that might be necessary at a competitive price. We also encourage you to check with your home insurance provider to see if any damages might be covered by your policy.
