I've been seeing more and more of these guys lately, they seem to be everywhere. Often tricky to get rid of, bats are the one of the few animals confirmed to carry rabies in Washington State.
I've dedicated hours upon hours of on site learning during my inspections, and can confidently say, that I am the best Bat Guy in Washington State. That being said, bats can never be underestimated.
Beavers are both adorable and menacing. They seem like chunky, cuddly balls of fur, when in actuality they could take off a finger if they decided to. They make dams.
And dams cause flooding, which could be your basement. Which could lead to thousands upon thousands of dollars in damage
You've probably never seen one, but you've seen their work. Mtn. beavers spend most of their time underground, only venturing above to gather food.
Which might be your hostas, laurels, or rhodies. They cut branches off, then drag then down into the depths of their tunnel system, never to be seen again.
Although rather uncommon home invaders, otters will sometimes find their way into crawlspaces and under decks. They can be incredibly destructive, and mother otters are one of the most difficult to approach, as they do not back down. Deceptively strong, do not try to remove these ones yourself.
A common pest, ants enter houses for a number of reasons. Food, water, shelter, all are viable reasons as to why you have a trail of these little guys running across your kitchen or bathroom floor. Normally fairly easy to eliminate, but it takes time. Not an overnight or one trip service.
Rabbits are one of those animals that you love or just cannot stand. Normally they're just kind of there, munching on grass or clovers. No biggie.
But you just planted those azaleas, and now they've been chewed up. That new groundcover? That's $25 a piece? And you bought 5! And they're ALL GONE?!?
We can trap for rabbits, yes.
