Wildlife Removal Services
The mild climate of Valdosta, GA, makes the city a great setting for urban life. However, nice weather and plenty of people are also ideal conditions for wildlife. Georgia residents deal with pests that have learned to thrive around humans.
Wildlife Problems in Valdosta
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.
Raccoons are a common sight in Valdosta yards, 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.
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.
Nuisance Wildlife in Your Lawn
Georgia homeowners also have run-ins with armadillos and moles. Armadillos may collapse pavement with their tunnels or cause vehicle accidents when they wander into roads. Another digging pest, a mole destroys plant roots while burrowing in lawns to find insects or grubs.
