Common Wildlife Pests in Spokane, WA
Residents in Spokane experience the frequent rain and high humitiy. The warm temperatures last from spring through fall and allow wildlife to thrive for much of the year. However, heavy rains drive pests to seek shelter in public spaces like parks and lawns. Wildlife inhabit the South Hill Bluff, Palisades Park, and Riverside State Park. Occassionally, these animals seek people's home for food, shelter, and water.
Critter Control’s experienced team offers comprehensive wildlife control and building restoration. We remove all types of pests from both residential and commercial properties.
Squirrels may look cute, but they are irritating pests that can cause extensive damage to your house. Both flying squirrels and ground squirrels nest high above the ground. As a result, they make their homes in roofs, attics, and upper levels in buildings. Squirrels destroy insulation, chew on wires, and spread diseases. Therefore, you should not hesitate in getting rid of them.
Inspection: Our inspectors look for signs of debris (nuts or nesting), droppings, structural damage, and gnawing. We may find squirrels in the attic or crawl space.
Removal: The most common methods for removing squirrels include direct capture, deterrents, one-way doors, and live trappings. Your situation will determine the method we use.
Repair: We may need to perform major repairs to components in your home or business, such as wiring, walls, attic vents, and insulation. You may also want to consider tree restoration.
Of the 15 bat varieties in Washington, 13 are year-round residents of the area. Many of these bats form maternity colonies, which can live inside homes and businesses alike. Larger colonies create a greater threat of spreading disease due to higher amounts of droppings. Their droppings collect quickly and spread diseases like histoplasmosis.
Inspection: Bats leave noticeable signs of their existence, such as rub marks, an ammonia-like odor, and openings throughout the attic or roof.
Removal: Bat removal requires tight isolation and a way out of the building with no way back in. To achieve this, we use a bat valve. Bats fly through the valve to escape with no way to return.
Repair: Fortunately, bats do not cause massive structural damage. However, a colony can produce a lot of droppings. Therefore, we clean and disinfect the affected area and seal any holes.
Rat Pest Control
Rat infestation accelerates quickly, as they are prolific breeders. Once a rate population spreads throughout the building, it is almost impossible to remove them completely. The myth that rats only spend time in low-income or abandoned areas in town is false. No house, neighborhood, or area is immune to rats. This is because they are driven by the need to eat and mate, which they can do anywhere.
Rats cause property damage, spread infections, and contaminate food. They carry parasites such as ticks, lice, and fleas, which can remain in your home or business long after you remove the rats. Rats can also cause structural damage by chewing through wood and other building materials.
Inspection: Fortunately, it’s not hard to track rats. They often leave droppings and make nests out of paper and other materials. We look for signs of invasion such as droppings and nests and listen for movement in the walls, flooring, or ceiling.
Trapping & Removal: There are dozens of solutions for removing rats. We assess your situation and develop a removal plan that works in your building.
Repairs: Our team can apply caulk in cracks, seal holes, and install mesh in the vents. We can create a full envelope around the house to prevent further rat invasion.
Of all the pests in Spokane, raccoons are among the most fierce and destructive. This is due to their powerful body, dexterous hands, and high level of intelligence. However, raccoons are driven by the same motivators as other animals: food and reproduction. If you discover raccoons on your property, do not attempt to remove them. Call a professional instead.
Inspection: We look for signs of raccoon presence, such as droppings, footprints, and noise. In addition, we inspect the building for large holes in the attic and crawl space.
Removal: Due to their size and agility, raccoons can be tricky to remove. The best way to catch raccoons is with live traps. Once we catch the raccoons, we release them into their natural habitat.
Repair: Our team can repair all walls, flooring, insulation, or roofing that raccoons have damaged. We can also seal any large holes or entry points into your home or office.
Spokane Bird Control
Pest birds like pigeons live throughout the state and roost on balconies and in high-traffic areas where humans leave food scraps behind. They often gather in large flocks, which can cause problems when their droppings accumulate. In addition to being messy and unsightly, pigeon droppings can damage property and put pedestrians at risk of slipping.
Smaller birds, such as the starling, can be equally problematic for Spokane residents. These pests like to live on home exteriors, creating nests that block gutters and vents. Their loud calls, large flocks, and messy droppings combine to make the birds a nuisance. Starlings have growing populations across Northeast Washington.
Inspection: It is not difficult to track birds such as pigeons and starlings, as they typically leave noticeable nests and large amounts of dropping. In most cases, they can be found in attics and on roofs.
Removal: Exclusion is usually the most effective form of bird management. We block open spaces with bird netting and offer solutions that keep the birds from roosting on the roof. See the details on our pigeon removal work at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes.
Repair: Some repairs may include replacing components on your roof or gutter. However, most cases involve simply cleaning your home exterior and removing the bird droppings and nests.
