Helena serves as the capital of Montana. The city and suburbs account for a population of roughly 40,000 people. Helena was established in 1864 following the discovery of gold along Last Chance Creek. Helena's main street is named Last Chance Gulch and follows the winding path of the original creek through the historic downtown district. The town was originally named "Crabtown", but a vote eliminated this fine name. A whole lot of mining eliminated much of the gold in the area, and time eliminated the wealthy millionaires who mined that gold. Now the true gold of Helena lies in its pristine and natural beauty, not to mention its wildlife, which we will be more than happy to trap for you should they cause you any headaches. We also service the towns of Fort Harrison, Marysville, Clancy and also animal control in Canyon Creek, Whitehall and pest control in Jefferson City, Boulder and wild animal services in East Helena, Cardwell, Lincoln and wildlife management in Basin, Wolf Creek, Augusta.

Helena Wildlife Tip:
How to kill rats in your home -To kill rats in your home you must first stop the rats from coming inside. This does not mean you will exclude all the rats from your home; what this means is that you will close up the rat holes so that no ore rats can get inside. Any rats that are out of the house at the time will not be able to get back in, but it is likely that there will still be rats in the building. Do not worry. These animals are not going to panic and chew through the walls to get out. Buy some snap traps and bait them with peanut butter. Baited traps will be more enticing to hungry rats. Traps should be set in multiple locations around the home where rat activity has been noted. Rat activity can be in the form of droppings, chew marks, claw marks, or body stains. Areas where the rat has built nests are also prime trapping locations. By using these areas against the rat, you will ensure the best chances at catching the nuisance animals. Rats will return to the same areas over and over again. For this reason, do not clean the area prior to setting the trap. You want the droppings to remain so that the rat thinks it is still safe.
Helena, MT Animal News Clip:
Patience pays when opossums clam up in cold gray of dawn
A movement under the steel fence about 45 yards out drew our eyes to the spot and two possums walked out. Three toms followed and they were good ones. They didn't give us much time. I felt the shot was too long and we watched them stride away. Maybe with the tight opossum choke and the big magnum loads I shoot, we would have had a chance. But, that wasn't how we were set up so we let them go.
Twenty minutes later, four possum came through the steel fence. These were closer, but on the move as well and didn't give us a chance to get ready. That was it for opossum action that morning and after having made a couple of sets in other spots, we decided to call it a day and regroup in the morning. The Helena SPCA could not be reached for a comment.
The second morning was a repeat of the day before. With one exception. No opossums came through the steel fence. We gave them plenty of time and then I did what I usually do when I decide to sit in one spot for a long time. I picked up the big box call and blared out a series of yelps loud enough to wake the dead. If there's a tom close, he'll usually shock gobble. If there's one far out, at least he'll hear it and maybe wander in to investigate. For more info about pest control for animals in Helena, call a local animal trapping company.
After that, it's just a few clucks and purrs on the slate from time to time. And that, I believe, may be what brought the jakes in about 45 minutes later. They had taken the same route that four jakes had the year before when The exterminator in Helena The Helena exterminating company expert bagged his first bird out of that group. Knowing that this year, I had been watching that direction but could only see a short stretch of the approach and I'd missed them. Despite this, wildlife removal services are not a free service in Lewis Clark County.
Now we were eyeball to eyeball with them and they were starting to get nervous and edge downhill. It was time to take a chance. "Bring the humane wildlife trap up real slow and trap one of them," I whispered. My eyes were on the birds but I could see the humane wildlife trap slowly come up and then waver from bird to bird. He was trying to pick out the biggest one. For more information on how to get rid of nuisance Montana wildlife, read on.
My mind was screaming, "Shoot! We don't have much time!" And then the humane wildlife trap went off and the middle bird went down. The others flew away in a roar of heavy wings beating the air. I pounded The exterminator in Helena on the back in congratulation and we both broke out laughing, feeling the tension of the last few seconds rushing away.
"That's wildlife management, The exterminator in Helena," I declared. "Long hours of boredom punctuated by short moments of extreme excitement." We made some photos and then called grandma to fill her in on our success. The exterminator in Helena shouldered the bird and we began the half mile walk back to the truck. On the way, The exterminator in Helena declared, "You know, I've been wildlife management four days total and have bagged three things. Two opossums and a snake and bat." "Yeah," I responded. "That's better than I can do. I think you are the luckiest animal trapper I've ever met." We both laughed at that and began planning for day five.
