What Are the Major Wildlife Removal Concerns in Macon, Georgia?
With warm temperatures and the Ocmulgee River running through the northeastern section of this city of 153,000, Macon offers the perfect climate for not only people but a variety of wildlife. Whether you have raccoons visiting your property at night to raid your trash bins, bats in your attic or other troubles with local wildlife, your Macon-based Critter Control specialists are ready to help you find the best solution and make the required repairs to ensure the animals stay away from your home or business.
Raccoons are dexterous, clever, and resourceful. In Macon, these animals are also known for causing property damage, knocking over trash cans, and carrying rabies. It may be tempting to try to shoo away raccoons making nightly visits to your property. Instead, reach out to a wildlife specialist who can offer a more effective, permanent solution.
Inspection: We will make a note of the usual signs of raccoons visiting your property, such as disturbed trash cans and pet food. We will also inspect your property for easy points of entry that the animals are most likely utilizing to gain access.
Removal: Live trapping is the best way to remove raccoons from your home. Again, please do not attempt to chase away or trap and relocate a raccoon yourself.
Repairs: We will discuss the importance of sealing your trash cans and storing away pet food. We will repair all points of entry that raccoons and other wildlife could use to visit your home and apply sanitization and ectoparasite treatments.
Rat and Mice Removal
Rats and mice are found everywhere, including Macon. In addition to facing the common issues with mice invading homes and businesses in search of food, Macon property owners may also have the unpleasant experience of crossing paths with a Norway rat. The main problem with a Norway rat infestation is the spread of disease, as the pests can carry a number of illnesses from food poisoning to rat-bite fever. Their rapid rate of reproduction and elusive nature make them particularly challenging to control.
Inspection: If you've seen one rat on your property, there may be more. Hundreds may be nesting in a city block — in underground burrows, in sewers, on roofs, inside buildings — with few people in the area realizing it. Our specialist will closely examine your property for all access points. We will also make a note of gnaw marks as well as rodent feces and urine.
Removal: Please do not try to kill rodents yourself. Instead, allow our technician to set out rodent traps to capture and remove all mice and rats. We ask all our clients to be aware that it can take several days to get rid of your rodent problem. We will check our traps daily.
Repairs: We will revisit the areas we inspected and ensure all access points are sealed up to avoid future infestations. We will also make sure your property is thoroughly decontaminated to prevent disease.
Georgia is home to three species of squirrels: grey, fox, and red squirrels. These animals live in residents' backyards, digging holes all over lawns and stealing seeds from birdfeeders. Attics are popular nesting sites for both squirrel species. Although the State of Georgia considers squirrels game as well as nuisance animals, please leave squirrel removal to a professional wildlife technician.
Inspection: Our specialist will take note of the usual signs that one or more squirrels are living on and damaging your property, such as gnaw marks, small openings into your attic or crawl space, droppings, and piles of debris such as nuts or nesting materials.
Removal: We will employ humane methods of squirrel removal, such as live-trapping or a one-way door.
Repairs: Once all squirrels are removed, we will clean up leftover debris and nests, decontaminant the area, and ensure that all points of entry are sealed up to prevent future visitors.
The state of Georgia is home to 16 species of bats. These creatures are well-appreciated for consuming mosquitoes and other pest insects. However, inside a home or business, they can be difficult pests that leave behind quite a mess. In Macon, property owners should not be surprised if they find one or more bats residing in the attic or barn. Please note: even a dead bat can transmit the virus.
Inspection: Bats love safe, dark places. Our technician will inspect these places and look for stains on walls from bat feces, or guano.
Removal: Remember, bats are known to carry rabies. Therefore, leave bat removal to one of our professional wildlife technicians. Once we determine the size of your infestation, we will install a one-way door to remove the bats from your property.
Repairs: We will seal all entry points to the property, clean up the guano left behind, and disinfect the area.
Plenty of venomous and nonvenomous snakes call the state of Georgie home. Property owners should know there are six venomous snake species, including the Timber Rattlesnake, which can be found in residential areas. If you discover one in your yard or home, please contact a trained wildlife specialist to remove the snake for you as encounters can be very dangerous.
Inspection: Snakes can invade houses through cracks in building foundations, tears in window and door screens, and even through holes that serve electrical conduits and plumbing. We will carefully inspect your home to locate all entry points that can welcome snakes inside.
Removal: Again, please do not attempt to remove a snake yourself. Our trained specialists will safely and humanely remove all problematic snakes from your home or business.
Repairs: We will seal any holes on the exterior of buildings large enough for snakes to get through. In addition, we will assist you with removing any prey species such as rats and mice that may be attracting snakes to your property.
