Our Process

Step 1: Wildlife Evaluation

Raccoons, squirrels, and opossums often seek shelter from predators and harsh weather in our homes. These wild invaders can contaminate insulation, damage electrical wiring, and leave droppings that are hazardous to your health.

That’s why quick trapping and removal is our specialty. Each critter demands a different approach to wildlife removal. Therefore, the first step to removing wildlife safely is assessing the problem.

Step 2: Wildlife Exclusion

Raccoons and other animals may get into your home, but Custom West Pest Control will clear them out and repair any damage they have caused. Professional exclusion methods are a key factor in keeping wildlife out. Our Wildlife experts work to personalize every wildlife solution to each home and business they treat. We use high-quality materials and methods to prevent wildlife from re-entry. Keeping wildlife out is called “wildlife exclusion.”

Protect your roof, siding, attic, and crawlspace from wildlife damage! Whether it’s opossums, squirrels, raccoons, Skunks, or more, we can clear the infestation and repair the damage.

Don’t let damage keep happening to your home, call us today 406-728-4447

Step 3: Sanitization

Wildlife living and nesting in a home can damage insulation, wiring, and even the structure itself. In addition, wildlife poses a health risk for your family. Dried urine, saliva and fecal matter may be carrying dangerous germs. So it is essential to replace contaminated insulation.

Our expert sanitation team will safely and quickly remove debris and filth, decontaminate, and deodorize your attic and crawlspaces. After that, we will install fresh insulation to restore energy efficiency to your home.

Step 4: Prevention

Being surrounded by the unique environment that we are in, the Northwest, we must co-exist with the wildlife native to the area. Occasionally, these critters find their way into our homes. Our wildlife control system helps to prevent future wildlife infestations in your house.

After removing and cleaning out any wild animals, our technicians will work with you to create a prevention plan for your home. This includes education and understanding of animals’ behaviors, as well as awareness of the exclusion projects and materials deployed on your structure.

Our wildlife experts are well prepared to educate you on best practices for wildlife control to reduce the likelihood of re-infestation.

Bear and Wildlife Information 
Feeding Wildlife

It is unlawful to feed, provide feed or other attractants to wildlife within the city limits.  Attractant means any substance, including food, garbage, and even salt licks which attract wildlife to a particular location.

Food Accessibility

Birdfeeders cannot be accessible to other animals other than birds or squirrels.  Remember to harvest your fruits and vegetables when ripe to keep bears from helping themselves to the food.

Garbage Containers

Garbage containers are required.  All garbage must be placed inside containers with tight-fitting lids and be kept covered.

Racks, stakes, or holders are required to prevent containers from being spilled or overturned by animals.  Bears can get into regular garbage containers.  To keep them out of your garbage, there are bear-proof containers available from Allied Waste.

Keep your garbage in a secure area until pick up day.  Non-bear resistant containers may not be left outside in the Bear Buffer Zone.  Non-bear resistant containers may not be placed outside before 5:00 am on the day of waste pick up and must be re-secured by 9:00 pm on the day of waste pickup.

 Nuisance bird & wildlife can and will damage homes and property with their droppings, spreading of disease.

The financial implications of this ongoing nuisance are far more expensive than periodic property maintenance.

Our Eco-Friendly Goose Repellent Works in Two Ways:

  • It gives geese a visual warning — Because geese see the world in the ultraviolet spectrum, our repellent contains a UV marker. When the repellent is applied to your turf, the geese will see grass that’s purple in color and speckled in pattern. This serves as a threat to geese, and they learn to distinguish between treated and untreated turf. But to humans, the turf looks completely normal. Additionally, it causes no harm to the grass.
  • It causes indigestion — If the visual threat alone isn’t enough to keep geese away, the temporary after-effects will. When a goose consumes the grass treated with our repellent, it will experience digestive irritation within 20 minutes or so. It will bring no permanent harm to the goose whatsoever. They will refuse to eat any treated turf after they’ve experienced this stomach upset. Geese learn very quickly that it’s within their best interest to avoid treated turf. The geese will move on to a different locationWildlife Control 9
