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.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Clarke county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Athens-Clarke animal control for wildlife issues.

Athens-Clarke Wildlife Removal Tip: Will A Pest Control Company Remove A Bat?

Hiring a pest control company is something that most people will usually do if they have an infestation of insects such as cockroaches, wasps or ants, as this is really the specialty of pest control companies. However, when requested there are many companies who will accept work to remove a bat or even a colony of bats that have found their way into an attic, chimney or wall cavity. This may not be the most appropriate company to actually carry out the work, but they will often be willing to take on the work.

Steps That A Pest Control Company Can Take

One of the options that many pest control companies will use if asked to try and deal with a bat problem is to try and fumigate the bats out of the property, but not only is this dangerous but in many areas it is also illegal. Because the pest control company will not have the experience to know what the appropriate steps are to take when dealing with a bat infestation, they will often try to use the techniques used for getting rid of insects to try and deal with bats, and this is usually a bad idea.

The Problems With Using A Pest Control Company

Every animal control expert will have their own expertise and area of knowledge, so an expert in dealing with a problem raccoon will not necessarily have all of the experience to be an expert rat catcher. The same principle applies when using a pest control company, and while they may be able to try some techniques to get rid of the bats, they will also often cause more problems than they solve. Bats can only be killed with airborne poisons, and if a pest control company chooses to use this method, there is also a strong possibility that they could even become a hazard to others by working in this way.

Who Should You Hire To Deal With Your Bat Problem?

If you want to get rid of bats, then it is important to contact an appropriate company who will have the knowledge and experience to carry out the work. There are plenty of directories guiding you to a wildlife removal expert online, and some will even give you the name of an expert in bat removal if they aren't suitable to carry out the work themselves.


Athens-Clarke Animal News Clip: Trappers can look forward to successful rat and mouse trapping

"This is the best year we've had for 20 years in northwest Athens-Clarke," announced Kurt Jones, rat and mouse biologist. "Last winter's post-hunt rat and mouse classification had the best male rat and mouse-to-trapper ratio we've seen since the early 1990s." The overall amounts are still lower than in the 1990s, "but things look pretty rosy for the first time since 1999," the exterminator announced. Athens-Clarke extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this. Scott The critter professor, wildlife biologist, reported that Athens-Clarke units continue to have one of the best male rat and mouse-to-trapper ratios in the state. Even with some sort of slight decrease in the rat and mouse amounts, because of some winter loss last winter, ratios were about 46 male rat and mice to every 100 female rat and mice. Recognition is in order for this fine job done by local wildlife operators.

The critter professor encourages wild animal control companies to stay in higher elevations and announced the rat and mouse will probably be scattered unless the weather during the animal capture is hot and dry, which could force the rat and mouse to concentrate on water sources. The rat and mouse-wildlife trapping picture isn't as good on the Cache unit. "The Cache rat and mouse group of animals continues to struggle, with some sort of male rat and mouse-to-doe ratio of about 11 male rat and mice per 100 female rat and mice," announced some sort of wildlife biologist. To learn more about animal control in Athens-Clarke, Georgia read on. Biologists report that rat and mouse group of animals are rebounding in the Central Critter area and wild animal control companies should see more younger male rat and mice. "The Central Critter area received decent amounts of precipitation this winter and spring," announced Scott Root, Central Critter area conservation outreach manager. "Even with the extra snow this winter, biologists report excellent winter survival of rat and mouse. The rat and mouse are also in very good condition, which can be attributed to the abundant vegetation and water sources available in the critter area." Wildlife information of this nature is considered an important tool to conservationists.

He announced rat and mouse will be widely scattered because of the plentiful food sources found throughout most of the critter area. The western portion of the critter area has fewer rat and mouse but is rebuilding. Wild animal control companies will find more male rat and mice in the Southeastern Critter area this year, announced Bill Bates, pest animal expert. Athens-Clarke pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this. "Good rat and mouse production in 2006 and 2007 and good survival this past winter have strengthened group of animals across the critter area," the exterminator announced. "Most units show both short- and long-term upward trends as far as the total amount of rat and mouse in the group of animals." Athens-Clarke wildlife management officials concur.

While the amount of rat and mouse is up in the critter area this year, all of southeastern Georgia's rat and mouse group of animals are still under the management objective as far as the total amount of rat and mouse. The Athens-Clarke animal services in Clarke County declined to comment. Bates announced rat and mouse habitat in southeastern Georgia faces some sort of long highway to recovery after years of drought, but aggressive habitat rest oration work by the DWR and other agencies is beginning to pay off. The local Athens-Clarke wildlife control operator agrees with most of the above.
