Common Wildlife Issues in Commerce, GA
Located just north of Athens, Commerce, GA, has plenty of wildlife issues due to its mild winters and hot summers. Squirrels and bats often get into buildings and cause problems. The drive to find food and shelter motivates these pests to move into Georgia neighborhoods.
Birdfeeders are no match for a persistent squirrels, and these devices, along with scattered seeds, attract the pests to Commerce yards. Overhanging branches allow squirrels to easily jump from trees to roofs. One broken vent is all it takes for the rodents to get indoors.
Bats are beneficial because they eat insects, which is important in a warm, humid state like Georgia. However, colonies often move into outbuildings and attic. The bat guano that builds up beneath a roost causes foul odors. Their droppings can also develop mold spores that cause histoplasmosis.
Raccoons in Buildings
Raccoons are adaptable and survive in almost any habitat, including Commerce neighborhoods. These animals are rabies carriers. They also spread raccoon dangerous parasites. The pests' feces carry the parasite's eggs, and porches, decks, and wood piles are common latrine sites.
Other Wildlife in Georgia
Yard pests like chipmunks and armadillos are a headache for Georgia residents. As these pests search for food, they dig unsightly holes in lawns and gardens. Chipmunk burrows often interfere with underground wires, and an armadillo is a common cause of vehicle collisions in suburban areas.

Great people to work with!
John with CC has helped us twice in the last six years - first with a minor mouse problem, and then in troubleshooting a mystery animal that was raising a ruckus on the roof. In each case he was friendly, professional, and offered excellent guidance on the practical solutions. Highly recommend him, and this company.
Squirrels chewed siding of chimney. CC tech came out to assess situation. Fortunately animals not in attack. CC repair team came out and repaired damage and did a fine job. Very pleased with the business, their work and customer service.
Cannot say enough wonderful things about this company and Joe especially. We recently found a bat in our basement…SCARY! Called and asked for help, Joe came out at 8pm and was able to search the house, capture the bat safely and removed it from our home. His customer service was priceless to me and I highly recommend this company to everyone. Post visit he even sent a team to further assess our property and provide a quote for future needs.
They helped get rid of bats at our house and were friendly and easy to work with, highly recommend
We appreciated the quick response and the careful service by David Gleason. He explained each step of the process. He also returned to reset traps that had been sprung. He was professional and friendly. We highly recommend Critter Control.
Bryan was great. On time, professional, friendly. Most importantly, honest. No lies, no fear tactics, no gimmicks. Assessed the issue and was honest about the lack of work that actually needed to be done/was recommended, knowing that other places had dramatized and given several thousand dollar (4k+) estimates on a job that costs a couple hundred dollars. Can't recommend enough. Will be using for any future issues.
I’ve been using them for several years now. They are great!
Removed bats from our house and sealed up other areas of concern. Very responsive, explained things throughly to us, and did the work in a very timely manner. Much better than their two competitors that we also called. I would highly recommend them.
We have been having issues in our yard, and recently discovered large holes. Called this team, they immediately came out and determined the holes were partially exposed mole tunnels. They took care of the tunnels (as best they could), and trapped and caught a mole for removal. They were responsive, knowledgeable, and thorough. While I hope it is not needed - we would certainly reach out to them again should a need arise!
