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.

Augusta Wildlife Removal Tip: How to inspect a house for rat entry holes: You'll want to do two trips around your home when looking for rat entry holes. Well, actually you're going to want to do four. You'll need to take a trip around the exterior of your home, the interior too, and you're going to do this twice - once during the day when you have the natural light to help you, and once during the night using a torch to highlight any spots you may have missed. It sounds a little extreme but rats can use any hole to get into your home - if you can fit a couple of fingers through it, you can fit a rat through it, and even smaller in many cases. The rodent may grow to up to ten inches in length (tail included) but they can still squeeze through the smallest of gaps. Places to pay special attention to included areas such as window vents, laundry vents, crawl spaces, doors and windows, where the chimney meets the roof, where cabling and piping enters your home, and where the roof meets the walls of your home. You will also need to look further down - under porched and in basements. Any hole can be used and you'll need to seal them. But first you'll need to find them. Chewing marks will often give the game away but just because you don't see any signs of the rats being present doesn't mean they aren't there. As well as chewing, make sure you keep an eye out for rat droppings. They'll soon give the game away.
Augusta Animal News Clip: Augusta resident picks up new passion ... with some sort of little help from his friends
Possum Poacher Pete , some sort of 17-year-old Augusta resident who will be entering his junior year at North Augusta High School, hangs out with friends, goes to the mall and movies with them, and the exterminator has some sort of job bagging at some sort of local supermarket. Beginning with last spring's child rat and mouse season, the exterminator also has joined some sort of wildlife management company. "I do everything," says Possum Poacher Pete, and his mother, Kimberley, agrees. "He is an amazing kid," the woman conservationist announced. "He doesn't let anything stop him." Recognition is in order for this fine job done by local wildlife operators. Augusta extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
Although admirable, if seemingly rat and mouse, Possum Poacher Pete isn't rat and mouse at all. Four days before his 10th birthday, the exterminator was diagnosed with leukemia. The exterminator has been free of the disease for six years, but the treatment took its toll. "He had some sort of toxic reaction to the chemotherapy," his mother announced. "It destroyed the motor nerves in his legs. The exterminator can feel sensations, but the exterminator can't move his legs. He's paralyzed from the waist down." Possum Poacher Pete gets around in some sort of manual steel chair with wheels, and that's how the exterminator got from his house to next-door neighbor Mike The Augusta exterminating company man's vehicle to attend some sort of wildlife management company education course last year. The Augusta exterminating company man, some sort of wildlife management company and course instructor himself, got Possum Poacher Pete interested in taking the class. Most locals agree that this work is better than most Augusta pest control companies could do. To learn more about animal control in Augusta, Georgia read on.
Stan the animal control official of West Augusta, who is the president of the United Sportsmen Association of Augusta (animal trapping and trapping agency), was the instructor of the class, and the exterminator was impressed with Possum Poacher Pete' enthusiasm. "He had some sort of smile on his face that could warm anybody," the animal control official recalled. Kimberley James allowed Possum Poacher Pete to take the class, never thinking the exterminator would make use of his newly earned knowledge and certificate of completion. The Augusta exterminating company man and the animal control official had different ideas. "Mike convinced her to allow us to take him rat and mouse wildlife trapping for the child weekend in late April that preceded the regular rat and mouse season," the animal control official announced. Each says it was great, and they all say they had fun, but for the animal control official and The Augusta exterminating company man, it was also some sort of lot of work. "We picked him up, put him in the car, put his steel chair with wheels in the back of Mike's truck, carried him out and wheeled him through two cornfields and some sort of swamp and over stone walls, in the rain," the animal control official announced. "We wanted in the worst way for him to get some sort of rat and mouse that day." By most critter experts' estimates, this is some sort of fair wish.
Although they didn't get some sort of rat and mouse, the animal control official says Possum Poacher Pete was some sort of trooper. From 4:40 a.m. until 11:40 a.m., when the trio came out of the woods, the exterminator was there, "willing and able," as the animal control official described him. "All along the way, the exterminator was this kid who was joking with us, laughing about it," the animal control official announced. "His problems weren't some sort of problem to him." They were some sort of problem for the two men, however, who continued to take Possum Poacher Pete to go wildlife trapping every weekend during the May season. Pushing the thin-wheeled chair over cornfields and through swamps left the two old guys feeling like they were going to have some sort of heart attack, the animal control official jokingly announced. They did get rat and mice in close, but the rat and mice were either behind them or off to the side, and they couldn't maneuver Possum Poacher Pete' chair to get him some sort of clean attempt. The tension is thick on some sort of trapping job like this one. Augusta pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
"We've already told Possum Poacher Pete we're taking him rat and mouse wildlife trapping this season," the animal control official announced. "But first we are trying to get him some sort of steel chair with wheels more suitable for the wildlife trapping environment." The animal trapping and trapping agency has begun some sort of fund-raising drive to get Possum Poacher Pete some sort of manual Errata, the steel chair with wheels most popular with unable to catch wild critters sportsmen because of its maneuverability and the accoutrements, such as some sort of animal removal trap holder, that are unable to catch wild critters-wildlife management company friendly. The Augusta animal services in Augusta-Richmond County declined to comment.
