Raccoon Removal

These clever little critters can be found all over Cherokee County, GA, and love getting into garbage bins, dumpsters, barns, lofts, and buildings. Raccoons can carry a range of parasites that you do not want anywhere near your home, family, or pets. Be very careful around these critters!

Raccoons are very resourceful scavengers that can usually be found near a food source. It is easy to recognize a raccoon, but don’t get too close! They are most visible in the summertime when they have their babies, and the weather is favorable.

Inspection: We look for footprints, holes, nests, and droppings when we come to assess if you have a raccoon problem.

Removal: We leave traps in places we see signs of raccoon presence. They are very sturdy and catch the raccoon in a humane way. We leave them for the raccoon to wander in themselves, enticing them with the food we know they will want.

Repairs: It is not uncommon for raccoons to leave damage inside and outside buildings, garages, and barns. We also offer services to repair any holes made and disinfect areas affected by raccoons. You do not want any harmful bacteria left in your home. We can also replace insulation materials if they were damaged.

Squirrel Removal

Squirrels in metro Atlanta thrive year-round because of Georgia's mild winters.

Squirrels cause big damage to your home, property, barn, and garage. They have been known to chew through decks, gutters, and electrical wiring. These repairs can disrupt the functioning of your home. They can also leave piles of debris on structural roofing and clog home gutters with their nests creating a backup in the flow of rainwater, causing damage to your roofing.

Inspection: We can tell a squirrel is present by its unique gnaw marks. We always check for signs of droppings and nest building and for holes in any building structures that would let us know squirrels are there.

Removal: We come to your home and set up a one-way door trap that keep squirrels from coming back into your home once it is out.

Repairs: We can repair all holes and remove all droppings in a way that also disinfects the area. We can also remove any debris that may have been left behind by the squirrel.

Rat Pest Control 

The Norway and roof rats and the house mouse are common in north Metro Atlanta, and there is no lack of food, water, and shelter. So why are they such a nuisance in your home? Simply because it, too, gives them food, water, and shelter.

You won’t likely see too many rats and mice. They are active at night and know how to stay out of sight. They are sneaky creatures, snagging crumbs off countertops and chewing their way through boxes in your pantry. One way you know they are there is the droppings they leave behind, the ones that can be toxic to humans. There may also be gnawed materials like wood or wires and shredded insulation. If it is soft and accessible, rodents will chew it.

Setting a trap for rodents is a temporary fix. Eventually, others will find their way into your home. We can make it much harder for them, however.

Inspection: We find every hole in your home, from the size of a quarter, which mice can squeeze through, to bigger openings. We locate nests and assess damages.

Removal: We follow Georgia guidelines in removing rats and mice, including exclusion methods designed to keep rodents away from your home or office. For example, we seal every hole, from the bottom of your home, baseboard cracks, walls, and up to the attic and roof. We properly store human and pet foods and clean debris both inside and outside your home.

Repair: Our pros can fix or replace damaged wiring, boards, cabinets, shingles, and more. They will clean areas affected by rodents, including nests, feces, and urine.

Bat Removal

Georgia is home to sixteen species of bats, which are a vital part of our local ecosystems. They are typically nocturnal, apart from when they have a disease and become disoriented. Never try to handle bats with bare hands as they are covered in bacteria-filled feces.

Inspection: We search for droppings known as guano, small holes and openings, and the strong smell of ammonia.

Removal: We set up a special bat valve designed for your specific house structure, which allows for one way flight out of your home. They will not be able to re-enter as other entry points will be sealed off.

Repairs: We remove the bat valve, clean and disinfect guano and repair any holes to restore your home back to new.

Snakes in the House Control

Snakes are legless reptiles that can be found in just about any cool, small, dry space. In the heat of Georgia summer, they often take refuge under decks, foundations, and in small holes. They move across the ground by slithering back and forth and sense movement in the air using their tongues.

Inspection: Snakes are often found in piles of lumber, small holes, or in existing dens. We inspect all these places on your property. Gardens and garden boxes are also favorite places for snakes.

Removal: Do not attempt to kill any snakes yourself, as the venom can still be lethal even after their heads are removed. It is best to let us come and trap them, moving them off your property through relocation.

Repairs: Snakes usually do not harm property but can be dangerous to humans if they bite, as some are venomous. The best way to control snakes is to remove the source of their homes. We seal up any cracks where they may have gained access to dark hidden places around your home and property.

Opossum Control in Cherokee County

Opossums, or possums, are prevalent in Fayette, Henry, and Clayton counties. 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.

Beaver Control

Beavers have been a nuisance animal in Canton, GA. Beavers are second only to humans in their ability to engineer and alter landscapes. While a beaver's dam can create a thriving ecosystem, it can also lead to property flooding and tree damage. Beavers also can carry tularemia and giardia. 

Bird Control in Canton, GA

Birds are everywhere in North Georgia. Sparrows, starlings, and pigeons are the only ones not protected by state and federal laws simply because they are not native to our state. All birds can become nuisance birds. They perch on roof ledges, poop on cars and windows, and build nests in eaves and attics. Their poop is acidic and causes corrosion. It carries many toxins that can lead to respiratory diseases in humans.

Birds like to find small spaces to call home, like ventilation ducts, gutters, and soffits. When it rains, water that is supposed to flow away from your home doesn't. Water is not the only issue, however. The nesting materials they use can clog vents, creating fire hazards.

Let us help!

Inspection: We understand how a bird thinks and what it likes, including nesting and perching spots, food, and water sources.

Removal: If birds are in your home, we use one-way doors to let them fly out but not return. We remove nests and waste.

Repair: While we may not wash bird droppings off your car, we will repair or replace damaged soffits, gutters, shingles, wires, and more. We focus on exclusion by reducing food and water sources that attract birds.

This company has been great. The technician Kensi was very through and checked everywhere to make sure all access points were found. After a skunk was found in the trap on a Saturday morning they came to pick it up very quickly.
Michael was super friendly and knowledgeable. He checked my entire house and recommended and installed the solution within an hour.
We are under contract with your company and so far they are doing a fine job. Many thanks.
Excellent work environment full of presence of God. Professional and dedicated staff. A good place if you want to have your children in a place where Christian values are protected and encouraged.
Great company and amazing service, the staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly! Thank you to the staff and especially to Bubba for taking care of my property and giving it that "personal touch" to rid and maintain it from pests and bugs! Appreciate you guys and look forward to continuing business together! Thank you!
So when I went to have my insulation replaced I figured out that I had a critter problem that was beyond anything I was aware of. Not wanting to waste time I decided to call a professional and these guys were really good from day one. From the gentleman who gave the estimate to both of the guys that came out and did the work there was great communication and they were very effective at what they did. One little thing got missed and all it took was one text message and somebody was out the next day to take care of it. They always text me when they're on their way or going to be at the house and they let me know what they found along with photographs. My first thought when they gave me the quote was wow that was a lot of money and I didn't want to spend that much and now that I've had them do the service I feel like it's worth every penny and it's actually pretty damn reasonable considering the number of times that they come out and all the things that they do take care of.
I had an issue with squirrels getting into a small section of roofing without access from the attic or inside of the home. Critter control was a huge help in solving the issue, especially thanks to Brandon and Nate. Ended up catching 3 squirrels living in the roof plus they seal the entrance point after all is said and done. I would absolutely recommend critter control, Brandon and Nate did a stellar job.
Dominick was very friendly and he consistently put on his shoe covers each time he entered the house. He looked over every inch of the storage room where we thought the animal was and did a walk around the yard to see if there was evidence of entry. He was very thorough. He did not find any animal at that time. He said he would leave a trap and review the outside area of the house over the next week. It was the next day that the smell in our storage room indicated that the animal had died. We followed the small and discovered a dead bird in an open storage bin. I would highly recommend Dominick for 'Critter Control'. Thank you, Valerie
Great explanations regarding findings, friendly, quality work! Each encounter with their tech has been professional and educational.
your representative (Dominic) was very friendly and quickly removed the dying raccoon from our outdoor window-well. He also shared information with us regarding raccoons on their behavior, what they liked/disliked, and provided information on how to disinfect the area the raccoon had been trapped in for a couple of days. I'd rate him 9 stars if I could. -pja
