IME, the issue is power, i.e., having the power to make mantra and puja work as intended. Within Tibetan Buddhism, there are all sorts of pujas and practices for dealing with the eight classes of spirits. But you need someone with real power. Otherwise, you might make the situation worse.
When Trisong Deutsen was trying to establish Buddhism in Tibet, He first invited the monk Shantirakshita. However, although Shatirakshita was a pure monk and a great scholar, He didin't have the power to overcome the demons of Tibet. So He then told Trisong Deutsen to invite the Tantrika Padmasmabhava to Tibet, that Padmasambhava had the kind of power necessary to deal with these demons. Trisong Deutsen did this and the rest is history.

Some of the spirits which fall into these eight classes include asuras when seen from the POV of the six realms. Others are devas, and yet others are pretas. Some are even "animals," as in the case of Nagas. I recommend you google "the eight classes of spirits" and see what you come up with. This is Demonology 101 in Tibetan Buddhism.
