Puyallup animal trapping and removal company. We specialize in wildlife only, and are not like a regular Puyallup pest control company or Puyallup exterminator. We use humane methods to

and removal. We offer a variety of services, from animal damage repair to waste cleanup, dead animal removal and odor control, and more. We handle several nuisance wildlife
species, including squirrels, raccoons, snakes, skunks, and opossums. We also perform bat removal and bird control services, and rodent control, including poison-free mouse and
rat removal. Give us a call any time at 253-275-0685 to discuss your Puyallup animal control issue, and to schedule a fast appointment.
Puyallup wildlife control tip of the month:
Should I feed a baby squirrel I found?
It is still the wildlife rehabber who is responsible in taking care of the baby squirrel, so what is written here is not meant to replace the care that a wildlife rehabber or a vet can do. This is just to provide you with Puyallup animal control help on what you must do if in case you have found a baby squirrel orphan. What you will do with the baby until you have reached the Puyallup exterminator rehabber. It will be best to check if it is injured or not, be cautious because it will bite you if you have touched the painful part of its body.
Before you try to give anything to the baby squirrel, you need to make the baby feel warm first. Be sure that the temperature of the baby is warm enough, but do not overheat the baby. The normal body temperature of the young squirrel must be 99 degrees, which is close to the human temperature when having a fever. Place it in a box with a clean Puyallup animal trapping blanket and place a light cloth to cover it. Don’t put towels in the box, because the toenails of the squirrel hung in the loops and they may rip out or break by accident.
You can place the squirrel in a Rubbermaid box, this will enable the squirrels to get the air and they keep them in the box to ensure their safety. You can place a heating pad under the box with a folded towel between the box and the heating pad. If the baby is not capable to move on its own yet, you must monitor the temperature of the squirrel closely, so he will not tend to overheat. If the baby is warmed up, the young must feel warm to your file. The healthy and grown up squirrel that has a lot of cover to cuddle under will not need a heating pad anymore, as soon as it is capable of regulating its own body temperature. The baby squirrels that are kept in a dry place may have a dry skin. You can rub it with a little amount of baby oil daily for a few days. That can be of help while the babies are under your Puyallup wildlife removal care.
It is so hard to take care of a baby squirrel and it requires a lot of responsibility. You must be ready for it before you take it. If you cannot handle it, do not take the responsibility and just call a Puyallup pest control rehabber to handle this case.
