Wildlife Inspection

During the inspection we try to ascertain how many animals there are, where they are located, and how they got in. Based on what you have seen, heard and smelled, we start the inspection where you have noticed signs of animal activity. Evidence of animals inside your home include nests, dens, feces, and animal tracks. We investigate the exterior of your home looking for possible entry points, any evidence of animal damage, tracks, fur, animal waste, or rub marks.



We use several methods to humanely remove the animal from your home. Depending on the species, the number of animals, and the condition of your property, we develop a custom wildlife removal plan. Humane wildlife removal strategies include animal traps, one-way doors, and repellents. Once we guarantee all animals are gone, we implement exclusion techniques. Exclusion techniques provide a safe, long-term solution to nuisance wildlife in your home. We create barriers to prevent animals from getting to resources. We only apply exclusions once we are sure all animals are gone from your home.


Exclusion and Repair

Wildlife will damage your home. Exclusion techniques repair any damage the animal causes getting into your home. Inside your home, animals build nests and dens out of readily available material. They will create runs through the insulation. Rodents will gnaw on anything including electrical wires and pipes. Animals can also spread diseases. We apply sanitation agents to clean up feces and urine. Mammals can host pests like fleas, ticks, and mites. Ectoparasite treatments exterminate those pests so you don’t become their next host.

If you have an intrusion on your residential or commercial property, it’s important to call the professionals at Critter Control of Brunswick as soon as possible.

Raccoon Removal

Raccoons are a common sight on St. Simons and in Brunswick, but residents should avoid contact with these animals. Raccoons are a major rabies carrier in Georgia and will act aggressively if cornered or threatened. They are resourceful pests and will find any sources of food on your property if not properly secured, especially trash cans.



During the inspection, we determine the severity of the raccoon infestation. We look for physical evidence like footprints in or around the home, stains from raccoon feces and urine. On the exterior of the house, we look for damage like scratches on boards, broken vents and screens, ripped apart shingles, destroyed soffits, and every possible entry point.

Trapping and Removal

Raccoon Trapping

Live trapping is one of the most efficient ways to get rid of a raccoon. Depending on the situation, a one-way door or excluder valve can be installed. An excluder valve works by allowing the raccoon to leave but blocks its reentry. The choice of device is largely dependent on the season and location of the raccoons on your property. Direct capture is not commonly used because raccoons are a rabies vector species. If we must trap, we place traps strategically to safely catch the raccoons and we check traps frequently, based on state laws.



We provide a wide range of repair and restoration services. We can repair raccoon damage like broken screens on vents and chimneys and broken boards on decks and porches. It is essential to apply cleaning agents and ectoparasite treatments on areas inhabited by raccoons.

Squirrel Removal

Squirrels are skilled climbers, which they use to gain access to home and building roofs. From there, they use their agility and small size to maneuver through vents, loose fascia boards, and broken shingles. Once inside, squirrels will nest and raise their young if unaddressed. Squirrels will act aggressively if cornered or threatened and should only be approached by professional help.



Wildlife specialists look for signs such as chewing on, in, or around your home, small openings leading to the attic or the crawl space, droppings, and debris like nuts or nesting material. Beams, wires, pipes, and insulation may all show signs of damage from squirrels.

Trapping and Removal

Squirrel Trapping

Live trapping or one-way doors are the most effective and humane ways to get rid of squirrels. One-way doors should never be used during birthing seasons (Spring & Fall), so our specialists will decide which is the best tool for the job. If we have to trap, we place traps strategically to safely catch the squirrels and check those according to state laws.



We can restore your home or office by squirrel proofing all entry points after we have removed the offenders. We can also clean-up the nesting sites and remove any debris, food, feces and soiled insulation.

Bat Removal

Bats naturally nest outdoors, but these animals often find their way into homes and buildings. Repeat encounters often indicate an active roost in the attic, where their droppings can quickly accumulate. Bats are known carriers of the rabies virus, and their droppings create favorable conditions for health-hazardous mold.



We perform a full interior and exterior inspection and search for signs such as rub marks, guano, a strong scent of ammonia, and small openings. The most common sign is the accumulation of guano (feces).

Trapping and Removal

Bat Removal

The most effective and humane way to remove bats is by utilizing a bat valve in conjunction with a full home exclusion. A bat valve allows for bats to exit your home but not re-enter. We follow all local ordinances for humane bat removal. We will never abandon flightless pups in your attic.



After removing the bat valves, we seal the entrance hole(s) so bats can no longer enter your home. If there is substantial guano in your attic, you should consider taking advantage of our attic remediation services to remove the soiled insulation and replace it.

Armadillo Holes in Yard

Armadillos were once a species found only in South and Central America, but they have been rapidly migrating northward and can now be found in many U.S. states from Texas and Florida and as far north as Missouri and North Carolina. They have little fat tissue and need water often, so even though they continue to migrate farther north, they can only live in climates that are somewhat warm and humid.

The nine-banded armadillo is the only species to live in the U.S. While their diet rids us of potentially harmful insects such as grubs, spiders, and termites, they will also eat root plants in the garden such as carrots and beets. They dig shallow holes in their search for food and shelter, which mars lawns and upturns garden beds, creating the need for armadillo removal.



Our experts understand the habits and habitats of armadillos. We can assess if damages were caused by their burrows or digging.

Trapping and Removal

Armadillo Removal

We have tools and equipment to properly remove armadillos, like safe and humane traps to capture the animal. Every armadillo removal is different and may require different safety techniques, from live traps to fumigations and repellents.


Armadillo Repair

Exclusion efforts include clearing debris, brush, and piles of wood or rocks. These are spots armadillos like to hide. We also cover burrows so an armadillo cannot return.
