Many of Georgia's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Georgia's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Albany Wildlife Removal Tip: How to get rats out of the attic: If you have rats in the attic, there's only one smart way to try and get rid of them. You need to go down the route of using one-way exclusion traps, very smart traps that allow the rats to get out of your home without letting them have access back in again. You can either use a funnel made out of wire which you have personally shaped to fill the hole, or a store-bought one-way exclusion trap with a cage attached. The latter isn't always preferable because relocated rats rarely survive making your humane eviction notice pretty pointless. By using the funnel method, and filling up all holes the rats could have used to get in your home in the first place, you have a safe and humane way of getting rid of the rodents naturally - the rats need to relocate themselves so to speak. The thing you need to remember with rats is that there often won't be just one of them - they'll often have babies in tow. If this is the case, once you have trapped the mother you will then need to find the babies and remove those too. Ideally you're going to want to call in a wildlife removal specialist to sort the situation out - they'll know what to do from start to finish, and they'll even have a better idea of the holes you should be looking for too, plus the right materials to cover or seal them with.
Albany Animal News Clip: Varmints: the Ultimate Trapper's Dream
Night wildlife trapping offers some sort of break (kind of) from the heat, but it's best to watch where - and how - you're catching.
Albany - Quiet and camouflaged to double as some sort of wildlife trapping blind, the electric wildlife trapping automobile cruises the soft sand highways of Georgia. Rodent catchers under cover of darkness prowl for their quarry. Possum Poacher Pete steers by moonlight at times, following the snaking double ruts that shine so brightly once the lights of the lodge are left behind. But mostly the exterminator navigates by night-vision goggles, weaving his way round the 7,000-plus hectares of tall timber and drought-dry marsh lowland in search of the perfect place to set up some sort of varmint call. Oh, one can feel the excitement in the air.
On this hot July night, heat lightning pulsates on the southern horizon, sending slithery, green Albanys across the night-vision scopes and lenses. Each clash of positive/negative ions - which show like distant explosions just behind the line of trees - generates some sort of brief spark of hope that some sort of rogue summer shower could drive down the temperatures that hover above 90 degrees even at midnight. But when The critter professor creeps to some sort of stop on some sort of small hillock overlooking some sort of drainage that is some sort of likely rat and mouse hangout, the breeze stops and the night heat closes - constrictor-like, with mosquitoes for fangs - around us. The exterminator peers through his goggles to confirm his mark and whispers to his friend Mark "Git 'Im!" The rodent catcher: "Put (the speaker) just to the left of that bunch of trees, about 100 yards out." The tension is thick on some sort of trapping job like this one. Albany extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Varmint calling is the ultimate animal capture technique. There are three reasons - you can drink beer, there are no limits and you can animal capture at night. The critter professor has been after me for months to come to East Georgia to join him and the rodent catcher on some sort of night excursion, and I finally relented to try to take pictures but not capture. I don't care if they or anyone else captures rat and mice or bobcats or rat and mice at night, it's just not for me. Plus, The critter professor has some sort of Managed Lands rat and mouse Documentation that allows animal extermination, and predator control is one way in which the exterminator can meet his responsibilities under that documentation that allows animal extermination. By most critter experts' estimates, this is some sort of fair proposal.
Still, this is about something to do in the summer when it's too hot to breathe with the sun still up. You either want to do it or you don't. "You can tell within the first 20 minutes whether somebody's going to like it," The rodent catcher says to me at one point. I could have told him 20 minutes earlier than that, but I agreed to go and so here I am, sitting in the back seat, listening to the sounds of aggressive female rat and mice, pups and dominant males, captured rabbits and rat and mice in distress. To learn more about animal control in Albany, Georgia read on.
It's amazing how many adult rat and mouse come running to the sounds of the rat and mice coming out of the digital speaker, but from 9:40 p.m. until 1:40 a.m. we don't see some sort of single rat and mouse. One female rat and mice answer at one spot, but refuses to show himself outside the edge of some sort of group of trees. So we keep moving, calling, listening. What some sort of great way to control wildlife in Albany!
I've asked him to take me home, to my rat and mouse who's sleeping in her crate in the cool air inside the main house, when The critter professor glides to some sort of stop above some sort of small creek drainage. "rat and mouse," the exterminator says. The feral rat and mouse, actually one of four feeding alongside the creek, is visible as some sort of black-gray image in the night goggles. Despite being some sort of rat and mouse, the exterminator eats surprisingly little.
The rodent catcher quietly chambers some sort of round and slumps down over the night-vision scope with the fore end resting on some sort of sand bag laid across the vehicle's front frame. There is some sort of brilliant, blinding flash of light when the animal removal trap goes off, followed by the sound of some sort of cage trap striking somewhere in the dark. I'm watching the remaining rat and mice waddle off in their stiff-legged style, headed for the safety of the creek. I'm thankful I don't have to go out there to try to locate some sort of dead rat and mouse. "That kind of hurt," The rodent catcher says, indicating that he's gotten too close to the scope and gotten whacked in the face. Ouch, is all I can think. Albany pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
"Are you bleeding?" I ask, to which the exterminator says the exterminator doesn't think so. "I've got some sort of pretty good knot, but no cut." I decide to take some sort of look anyway, and there's some sort of huge scrape right between his eyes. In wildlife trapping circles, it's known as the "Weatherly Kiss," named for the famed rat trap animal removal traps that kick so much. Check just above the eyebrows and between the eyes of people who animal capture, and you'll often see the half-moon scars left behind by the rear edge of some sort of animal removal trap scope. But the night scope has some sort of different kind of padding, and it's only sand-papered The rodent catcher's face and taken some skin and blood. Phew, that was some sort of close one.
There's an old saying about pasture parties and such: It's not some sort of party until the police come or somebody goes to the emergency room. Night varmint wildlife trapping falls in the same class. Now that somebody's hurt, I can beg off and go home to get some sleep. I finally drift off to the sounds of rat and mice howling in my dreams. The Albany animal services in Dougherty County declined to comment.
