Oregon is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Salem wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, it is necessary to perform correct preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. In fact Salem wildlife frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.
If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Marion County Animal Services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, lost pets, and more. No county in Oregon will assist with wildlife control situations, and there is no free Salem animal control services for wildlife.

Salem Wildlife Tip:
What trap to use for trapping raccoons -The type of trap you use to trap a raccoon depends on the reason for trapping the animal in the first place. If you're hunting raccoons for fur-related reasons, then you will most likely want a leg-hold or body gripping trap. People with a nuisance animal issue should consider hiring a professional first. The reason for this is because most states prohibit homeowners from trapping raccoons without a license, and even if allowed, the animal almost always needs to be terminated on the property. If you can't afford to hire a professional and you really need to get your raccoon issue taken care of, you can make the attempt on your own; however, you should be aware that this doesn't save a lot of money unless it is text-book easy, and sometimes you have to call in a professional anyway to help you fix the problem. Before you go out and buy a large cage trap, ask yourself if you are prepared to handle the situation if the raccoon in your house turns out to be a nursing mother. You can't leave the babies in the home; they need to be found and removed. Are you prepared if the mother stays in the attic, becoming aggressive because she thinks you are going to hurt her young?
