Wildlife Problems in Summerville, SC

Close enough to the coast to feel the humidity, Summerville, SC, experiences warm temperatures nearly year-round. Even winters remain mild in the city. This fair weather allows the wildlife pests of the area to stay active and cause persistent problems for homeowners.

South Carolina Squirrels

Like most people in the U.S., Summerville residents have run-ins with the eastern gray squirrel, but they also come into conflict with a more local pest, the southern flying squirrel. Both of these animals will use attics as dens. While trying to gain access, squirrels often damage roofing material, rip up window screens, and bend vent covers.

Bats Indoors

When natural shelters are unavailable, bats will roost in South Carolina homes. However, these animals do not chew their way into attics. A bat uses existing gaps and holes to get inside, and most species can move through a space that's the size of a dime. The simplest way to keep colonies from roosting in an attic is to keep roofs and home exteriors sealed and in good repair.

Raccoons and Disease

As scavengers, raccoons eat anything they can get their paws on. The pests often visit Summerville lawns where trashcans and gardens offer enticing meals. In addition to being a rabies risk, the animals' droppings may contain raccoon roundworm, which can infiltrate the soil beneath their waste. Young children are especially prone to infection when raccoons invade backyard play areas.

Other Summerville Pests

South Carolina residents also find groundhogs and pigeons on their property. A groundhog makes large burrow entrances that are damaging to lawns and a hazard to homeowners. Pigeon droppings tarnish buildings and pollute swimming pools and backyard ponds. The birds carry ticks and mites as well.

The Critter Control team went above and beyond to make sure that NO CRITTERS could get into my home. We thought we had conquered the problem, but we still heard squirrels getting in, so they returned to reassess and finish the job. They actually pulled up our deck boards and found that the critters were getting in because of a rotted board underneat the cantilever. They replaced the insulation, rotted boards, and put a metal sheeting over everything so NO squirrels or critters could chew their way in! If you need critter control - you need to contact them. They stand behind their work 100%.... Thank you Rodney & Team!! Great Job. Ellen R. Haslett, MI

We had a great experience working with the crew from Critter Control San Jose. They patiently listened to our observations, we came up with strategies and ended up fixing suspect areas, trapping a couple of rats. Problem seems to have been solved and hope we don't need to call them again
