Portland Wildlife Removal

24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

CCP Wildlife Control is geared toward humanely removing any nuisance animals that may be causing trouble while causing the least amount of hassle for you.

After being a part of the Oregon State Forestry service working on Wildlife Damage Management for over 30 years, Clifford Foster opened CCP Wildlife Control LLC in 2009.  Clifford is a certified Wildlife Control Operator by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

CCP Wildlife Control is a family run business and being such, takes great pride in the services that they provide to their clients.  Clifford personally goes out on every wildlife removal call to ensure that the best solution is gotten for the homeowners and the animals involved.  Each call is handled with the goal in mind being a permanent and humane solution to whatever the problem may be.

Not only does CCP Wildlife Control specialize in humane removal of the animal but also in prevention and cleanup.  There are a few things that can be done to prevent your home from becoming host to unwanted animals, some of which include, repairing or replacing all of the vent screens on your home that may have been damaged or not installed.  This will keep animals from using your vents as their front doors.  If your home has a chimney it is vital to have a chimney cap properly fitted and placed on top.  This prevents a host of animals from getting into the home through your chimney; it also prevents animals from setting up nests in your chimney thus creating a risk of chimney fire.  It is also recommended that you get an inspection of the building structure and seal or block any possible entry points prior to the animals getting in.  These are all things that CCP Wildlife Control specializes in.

Oregon is home to over 15 different species of bats.  With bat breading season coming up in Spring, it is a very good idea to start now with ensuring that your home is bat proofed.  If you do run into bats in your home this year, don’t worry, with the right experience they are easy to handle.  CCP Wildlife Removal can also help you with any bat exclusion needs.  With all bat exclusion and proofing CCP Wildlife Control does comes with a 1 year warranty that bat colony will not return to a proofed area.

With years of experience and their passion for the work, we are excited to add CCP Wildlife Control LLC to our National Wildlife Removal directory for Portland wildlife removal.

Wildlife Removals

A wildlife removals directory for local Nuisance Wildlife Control Operators.

Not all wildlife removals are done humanly, legally, and successfully. Using this directory can same you time and money. Why?

  1. Hire a licensed Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator. First question when choosing a service is “Are you licensed or registered with the state for Nuisance Wildlife?”. With the popularity of TV shows about our industry many new wildlife removal services have started up. Watching a TV show is not a certification or the proper training to handle a rabid raccoon, or trap a skunk without letting it spray. Always find out how long the company has been in business doing nuisance wildlife removals.
    Pest control services often offer wildlife removals, yet have no training on human trapping methods nor do the do the proper animal proofing repairs to keep them out. Some pest control services have done the proper training. Ask them if the do repairs, if not then they do not have the necessary nuisance wildlife removal training to eliminate your issues. Pest control services just control them, leaving the door open for future service calls. Trained nuisance wildlife control operators strive to eliminate your wildlife removal issues for good.
  2. Repairs. Again ask if the do repairs? If they don’t then they are not trained in proper nuisance wildlife. Our training is to remove the nuisance animal, then do the proper repairs (exclusion) to keep out future critters. This is important, if you have a mother raccoon in the attic and you remove her without repairing the hole another raccoon will easily get into the same spot. Hiring a Nuisance Wildlife Control Operator insures that the repair will be reinforced in keeping any future wildlife from re-entering.
  3. Clean up! Do they do the clean up after the animal is removed. Feces and urine is left behind and must be clean up. This is the part of the wildlife removal that is the most important. Attic and wall removals are often disregarded because of the cost. Homeowners do not realize attics are breeding ground for airborne diseases from the feces of raccoons and squirrels. Think of it like this, one pile of feces in an attic over 125 degrees forever, never cleaned up. Now multiply this by 50 and that is your average dropping left behind from an animal that has been in a space for over two weeks. The average time an animal goes undetected in an attic or structure is 10 days before the homeowner knows they are there. I experience this all the time. We get called out and it is a nursing mother raccoon or squirrel. You can tell by the age of the litter, typically five to twelve days old on average.
  4. Sanitize. Once the animal feces and urine are gone sanitize the infected area. This step is never thought of by the homeowners until it is brought the their attention. Homeowners just think of getting rid of the animal, not the proper process after the animal is gone. You clean and sanitize your bathroom weekly, you only have to clean and sanitize your attic when an animal has used as a bathroom once.
  5. Experience. I must mention this a bit more. Wildlife is unpredictable. Having the training on predicting what the animal will do will result in a faster removal. Even predicting what the will do is still a educated guess on our part. However, our training has taught us on what to do next for plan B, C, D, and even plan E if necessary. Most of the time plan A works and if not plan B typically works 99% of the time, but if not were trained in dealing with many different situations.

Hire a service that know how to solve your wildlife removals quickly, humanly, and completely.

Animal in the Attic

Animal in the attic? Hearing footsteps in the attic? Attic noises? What’s in the attic may surprise you, know what to do and who to call.

What to do if you suspect something is living in your attic. Most people will first go up in the attic and take a look. I suggest doing some investigation before sticking your head up an attic stairway.

Take a look around your exterior of your home. You are looking for entries into your attic or siding. Binoculars are useful because you can see on your roof better and look into the eves without using a ladder. You are looking for anything out of place or damaged. The damage can be very small to a large hole in the roof. Larger animals like raccoons or opossums can squeeze through holes the size of your fist; if the head fits then the body can follow.

Look closely at the attic vents for broken screen or dirty marks. The dirty marks are paw prints or mud on the animal that has been left behind. Also look for things like leaves in air vents, branches, cotton or cloth stuffed into the siding or eves, anything that the animal in the attic might be using to make a nest.

Most companies who work in wildlife removal will take note of these things but as the home owner it is good for you to know what is going on also.  When you contact companies you will want to ask a few questions, do they seal entry points or is the home owner responsible for that?  Do they use any type of poison?  You will want to be cautious of this as it is toxic and often drives the animal to sources of water which can be your AC unit, pipes or any other area in the home that collects condensation.  Also, do they sanitize and deodorize after the animal in the attic is gone?  This is important as animal waste can carry parasites and disease that you don’t want to have in your home or ventilation for long.

Once you have gotten someone out they should get into the attic and see if they can identify what type of animal you are dealing with.  They will look for any signs of chewing in the wood, any broken wires or pipes. These will be things that you want to get repaired once the animal in the attic is gone as they can cause further damage to your home. The technician should make note of any areas with feces or urine for future sanitizing and deodorizing once the animals are gone.

Once they have a good assessment of what is going on they will get all of the entry points sealed.  Next is trapping, there are a few types of traps that can be used depending on the type of animal in the attic.  They are non-lethal and have enough room for the animal in the attic to enter fully and not cause any reason for the door to not fully close.  Once the animal is trapped it should be taken more than five miles from your home into a wildlife area and released.  If the trapped animal is a mother the technician is normally trained in finding and also relocating the babies along with the mother to raise their chances of survival after relocation.

Once you have gotten all of the animals removed the technician will complete getting the animal in the attic handled by doing a full sanitizing and deodorizing job to ensure any toxins from the animals is gotten rid of and your home is back to normal.

How to Trap Squirrels in Attics

So you have figured out that the noise in your attic is due to squirrels, you have seen them coming and going like they own the place.  Now you are wondering how to trap squirrels in attics and rid yourself of the little guys for good? It may feel at times that you are up against a never ending, fully trained and equipped army. Do not feel that you have failed if you need reinforcements from a trained professional even despite your best efforts.

With that said the best way to start is to find how and where they are getting into the house.  Look for things like holes in the soffits, vent covers that have been removed or damaged, anything that is not fully secured (meaning no gaps).  Even though the average squirrel is between six and nine inches, tail included, they only need an opening the size of a U.S. quarter to get into something.  You are going to want to get all of these entry and exit points sealed up to prevent future entry.  To seal the holes you would need sheet metal, flashing and hardware cloth.  You can also use hardi board or hardi planks to replace wood trim or soffits.  You can normally find all of these things at your local hardware store.  Take a day and get everything you can sealed up.

Then onto the trapping, there are various types of traps that you can get through hardware stores or even sometimes on loan from your local animal control, they are non-lethal and have a trip pan that causes the door to close.  You want to make sure they are about 16 inches long and at least 5 inches high.  This is so there is enough room for the squirrel to enter fully and not cause any reason for the door to not fully close, if you go much larger than this you also risk the animal running around in the cage and harming itself.  You want to get the trap into the heart of the activity, place a spoon full of peanut butter in the back of the trap and let it go to work.  You want to check it at least once a day to see if anything is inside.  Once you have trapped your squirrels make sure to handle them with caution.  Don’t put your fingers in the trap and use gloves, as cute as they may seem remember, they are wild animals.  Look for any sign that the squirrel you trapped is a nursing mother.  If so you will need to launch a search and rescue party, her babies are warmly nestled somewhere close.  This may take time to find them, be patient.  Once you have found them, while wearing gloves place them into a safe container like a box with high sides and move them out of the attic.  You should take the babies and mother more than five miles from your home into a wildlife area and release them together.  They have a higher chance of survival this way.  If for some reason you are not able to find the mother yet have a litter that you need to remove find a local rehabilitation center.  They are more equipped to raise the pups and release them back into the wild when they are ready.

You will need to “rinse and repeat” these actions until you are no longer hearing any activity.

A few key things to know, squirrels are tenacious, especially mothers who have been removed from their young.  You may need to look after a few days for any new entry points you had not previously found as she will work her way back to her pups if she has been trapped away from them.  Also there may be more than one, so be patient and you should succeed.  Most of all, don’t feel disenchanted if you are not able to handle this alone.  Most companies that are successful are so due to the experience they have and even then they have to work at it sometimes to get things just right.

How to trap squirrels in attics often will take the help of a nuisance wildlife removal service.

Atlanta Squirrel Removal

When I think of squirrels I think of princesses singing in the forest to all the lovely little animals with their fluffy tails swaying in beat to her song. Or that cute dog in the movie UP! who gets so easily distracted “squirrel!”.

Think again.  Squirrels are the cause of nightmares.  They are the things that make your house go bump in the night (and day), the odd sounds you hear while trying to get ready for work, the power flickering on and off, water puddles in strange patterns in your ceilings, things in your walls making your wonder if you are not alone. I’m getting a little too carried away in the spirit of the season.  All joking aside, you can chalk up most of those issues to the cute little fluffy tailed guys doing some renovations in your attic or walls.

There are all sorts of “magic” tricks you can try at home like moth balls, ammonia, bleach and, not kidding, human hair.  The idea behind these things is that you are making the space they are occupying smell bad.  The problem is that by the time they have started renovations on their new home, a bad smell is not likely to dive them away.  They will normally relocate further from the smell which may only mean in your soffits instead of the attic.

Once they have established a living space in your attic (for example) they like to investigate and make things more comfortable for them and their, often times expanding, family.  This includes things like chewing through and relocating any pesky electrical wires, making access to their restrooms a little easier by opening up the pipe that runs to your water heater and making your attic more of an “open concept” design.

By the time you have seen or heard the signs you should call an Atlanta squirrel removal professional.

There are a few things that you should pay attention to in hiring a company to help you.  Do they look for any and all ways that squirrels could be getting in and out of the space?  Squirrels often go out for food and water and have busy day time schedules.  What type of deterrent method are they planning on using, poison, live traps or one-way-doors?  If you find a company that is interested in spreading a poison there are some things you should think about before deciding what is best for you.  First, think of the princess in the woods and that sweet squirrel trying to care for its family, do you really want to kill it?  Secondly, often times after ingesting a poison the animal will be driven to find a water source this, in more cases than one, ends up being your air-conditioning units and any pipes that may put off condensation, thus resulting in the animal dying near those sources and causing further problems like smell and decay in areas of the house they may not have previously gone.

The most effective way that I have seen used is a one-way-door.  This is placed after all other entry or exit points have been sealed.  It is placed in one remaining hole, the way it works is to allow the squirrels out and not back in, meaning when they go to work outside for the day, they don’t get back in.

You also want to ensure that any Atlanta squirrel removal company that you use offers a complete sanitizing and deodorant service after removal, even if using a one-way-door as any feces left behind can cause illness and odor.

I hope these points help you in finding the right Atlanta squirrel removal company for your needs.

Charlotte Squirrel Removal

Squirrels in the attic? Chimney? Soffits? Call General Pest Co (704) 777-8003 to solve all your Charlotte squirrel removal problems quickly and humanly.

Squirrel Removal CharlotteSquirrels are entertaining creatures that seem to bother nobody, right? Well, this is true if you are in a park or out on a hike. Squirrels chew into attics and soffits of homes to nest and live in. Squirrels also love to live in chimneys.

Squirrels have incisors front teeth that never stop growing. They have to continually chew on wood, bark, and anything it can to keep them sharp. They keep them sharp to open nuts and to gain entry into hollowed trees or your property. Squirrels have 22 teeth and the use all of them to grind their food to swallow.

Squirrels like attics, soffits, and chimneys because they are quiet and safe from predators. The chewing skills make it easy to gain access to almost anywhere that seems quickly accessible from a roof or tree branch. Once in the area they build a very comfortable nest to sleep and/or to raise their young.

A squirrel can fill an entire chimney with debris, tree limbs, and whatever it finds to fill a hole for a comfortable living space. Attics have many exposed wires running through them for squirrels to chew on for teeth sharpening. As one can see a squirrel can cause a dangerous situation for any home. Squirrels cause many electric fires in attics every year as well as create chimney hazards.

Squirrels are removed successfully by one of two trapping methods. Trap and relocate or One Way traps. Trap and relocate is usually used one the squirrel has continued to be a nuisance. One way traps are used to let the squirrel out of the entry point but not let them re-enter the entry. The picture above ia a one way trap with one squirrel out and one squirrel about to come out of the entry point. One ways work good because there is not relocation of the squirrel and less trips out by the nuisance wildlife control company. There are one way traps that do have enclosed ends to capture the squirrel for relocation. You and your nuisance wildlife control company should decide which method will work for your unique situation.

The cost of a professional squirrel removal varies by each situation. This really is true. The scope of work to resolve each situation is completely different from call to call. For instance one call may be just setting a one way trap and no clean up necessary and the next may be five one ways, 12 hours of soffit repairs plus materials, and sanitizing the attic. Every call varies in between these two scenarios or may even be more work. Typically squirrel calls are just a couple of minor holes and repairs with 2-3 visits all done over a weeks time. Typically is a dangerous word, we often do non typical jobs, that’s why you are calling us for your Charlotte squirrel removal.

Detroit Squirrel Removal

The best Detroit squirrel removal service is Michigan Wildlife Removal (734) 720-9776. They will solve all your squirrel problems in attics or squirrel chewing.

SquirrelGenerally squirrels live in trees. However, our attics and eves seem to be an common place squirrels like to mistake as trees. Chimneys with caps have become an easy squirrel dwelling. Squirrels cause millions upon millions of dollars in residential repairs every year in the US. Homeowners generally do not have the time or know how to keep squirrels from being nuisances.

Squirrels have to chew to keep their ever growing incisor teeth sharp. The can crack open a nut easily and chew through siding and wood trim. Damages occur in attics that can become a serious fire hazard. Squirrels in attics love to chew on wires. The like wires because they are tough and help sharpen their 22 teeth. If you have squirrels in you attic and you think its ok for them to be there, think again. Hot electrical wires cause attic fires. Attic fires typically burn the entire house down to the foundation. If you know you have squirrels in the attic, get them out!

Why do squirrels like attics, soffits, and chimneys? Easy, they are quiet and private. People are too big to fit into the soffits and chimneys. We are not often in our attics either so squirrels have found nice cozy places to live. No predators can usually get at them in these places and there is an abundant number of houses to get into.

Squirrels in the fall start gathering nuts and seeds to store for the winter. This is called scatter hoarding. They will also bury food in hundreds of places in different locations to collect during the winter. Every piece food is cleaned before it is stored, that leaves its own scent on it to be easily found in the winter.

The best way to get rid of squirrels after they have become a nuisance is trapping. Squirrel removal from soffitEither using a trap that is placed on the entry point that lets the squirrels out but blocks the re-entry or just simple trap and remove methods are the best. Knowing how to set a trap for a squirrel for a successful squirrel removal is the key. Many times customers call after they have failed for a long time to successfully trap the squirrel in the attic.

If you have need a Detroit squirrel removal because you need them evicted fast or have failed to get rid of the squirrels call a fully licenced Nuisance Wildlife Professional. They can do all the repairs and removal of the squirrels safely, humanely, and quickly.
