Buckhead, GA, is warm year-round with high summer temperatures and cool, snow-less winters. These conditions allow wildlife to thrive in any season around residential areas. Buckhead’s large estates and beautifully landscaped properties are not only attracting homeowners. 

Buckhead might be considered an exclusive neighborhood, but that doesn’t stop pest animals from making themselves at home. Critter Control is here for you every step of the way in the wildlife removal process.

From inspection to removal — and even exclusion and repair — we have the services you need to get rid of raccoons, rodents, and other nuisances fast. First, we identify the animal on the property, then use humane methods to remove the animal and secure weak points where more could enter. If damage has been done, we can make those repairs for a complete restoration. Contact a Critter Control in Atlanta today.

Bat Control in Atlanta

We’ve got 16 species of bats in Georgia, all of which are protected in some way due to diseases like the white-nose syndrome that is reducing bat populations. Bats are very beneficial to the environment, eating thousands of insects in one night.

Bats in Georgia seek out dark, protected places to hibernate and rear their young. Wall voids, garages, and attics are ideal. After bats colonies move in, their droppings accumulate quickly. Not only does this waste smell and stain, but disease causing Histoplasma mold often grows in bat guano.

It is never a good idea to interact with a bat since they are disease carriers and will bite if they feel threatened. Instead, call us to help you get rid of bats from your home.

Inspection: Bats aren’t too difficult to locate since they have preferences when roosting. We focus more on assessing the damages caused by bat guano, like the stains it can leave behind. We must identify entry points, food, and water sources.

Removal: We follow state laws and communicate with the Wildlife Department if testing is required. We know that bats fly out every evening. We install one-way doors that allow the bats to fly out, but they cannot fly back in. If we must physically remove a bat, our pros have bat gloves and other protective equipment to get the job done. For exclusion, seal all possible entry points into your home. We remove or reduce food and water sources, like areas with stagnant water or outdoor lights that attract bugs at night.

Repair: Most damage is caused by bat guano, so we aim to clean areas affected by it. Keep in mind bat the maternity season is from May to August, so nothing can be done to remove or repair during this time.

Raccoon Removal in Buckhead, GA

Unsecured trash cans and pet food bring raccoons right to Buckhead homeowners’ doorsteps. Once they find a good food source, the pests are likely to stick around. Some may even look for a place to den near houses, taking up residence under porches, inside chimneys, or in attics.

Inspection: We want to know how the raccoons are getting into your home. We examine all areas with raccoon activity for feces and urine, shredding, chewing, breaking, and other damages.

Removal: To get rid of the raccoon from your home, we follow Georgia laws. If it’s necessary to trap a raccoon, we use our CritterSafe system that is safe and humane. We focus primarily on exclusion methods that keep raccoons away. Examples include sealing all the entry points and eliminating food and water sources, like smelly trash cans or pet food, attracting raccoons. We can even fence your garden crops and trim trees that give them easy access to your roof.

Squirrels in Attic Removal

squirrel indoors is more than just a nuisance. When these pests get into Buckhead homes, they can cause expensive damage by gnawing on wires, wood, and insulation. Squirrels even damage houses in the process of coming inside. The pests frequently enlarge existing holes or tear up loose shingles to nest.

Before you try to get rid of the squirrel and its belongings yourself, call the experts. If not done right, the squirrel will move right back in next week.

Inspection: Our experts can determine which species of squirrel is a nuisance on your property. This is important because the gray, red, flying, and fox squirrels may have different removal regulations to follow. We locate every possible entry point into your home, from crawlspaces to ductwork. We also assess damages.

Removal: We follow Georgia laws regarding permitting, trapping, and removing squirrels from your home. We use safe and humane methods for removal and make it hard for squirrels to get back into your home. We help you reduce food and water supplies and sealing all entry points like chimneys, vents, and cracked or broken attic windows. Exclusion methods also include trimming trees to make it harder for squirrels to access your roof, clearing debris in the yard, fencing garden crops, and removing or relocating birdfeeders.

Repair: Common damages we fix from squirrels include chewed wires and wood, broken screens that cover vents, fencing crops, clogged ductwork that creates a fire hazard, and cleaning feces and urine. Many homeowners ask us to install tree and roof barriers that prevent squirrels from climbing.

Opossum Removal in Atlanta

Opossums, or possums, are prevalent in Atlanta. If you’ve got one in your home, you know it’s there. They are noisy animals. They scream, hiss, thump and bump. They can truly be annoying at any time during the day or night.

Plus, they are filthy, leaving feces and urine wherever they go. While most possums will move to a new home every few weeks, you don’t have to wait. You can call us to evict them early.

Inspection: We look for paw prints, waste, and areas destroyed by possums. We follow their trails and find out how they entered your home. We also locate food and water sources that attracted them to your property.

Removal: Possums are protected in Georgia, so we use our CritterSafe system to trap and remove them from your home. We remove waste and clean the areas where they were active. We implement exclusion methods like sealing entry points and removing their access to food or water.

Repair: We’ve seen possums break items stored in your attic or basement, scratch walls, chew wood, and rip up the flooring. We come prepared to fix damages like these.

Additional Buckhead Wildlife

Moles and chipmunks intrude on orderly lawns in Georgia. Both pests leave behind holes as they search for meals and create burrows. Mole holes are general larger than those left by chipmunks and feature large hills of dirt. Either pest may also disturb gardens and flowerbeds as they dig.
