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 handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:
- Humane wildlife trapping and relocaton services
- Removal of raccoons or squirrels from the attic
- Building repairs and prevention work to keep animals out
- 100% permanent elimination of rats, mice, or even bats
- Cleanup of animal waste and odor control services
- Emergency animal issues, and dead animal removal
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 Bartow 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 Cartersville animal control for wildlife issues.

Cartersville Wildlife Removal Tip: How Do Bats Communicate?
There are many myths and tales about how bats communicate, and while they do not communicate in the traditional fashion that is seen elsewhere in the animal kingdom, there are actually several different ways in which the bats can communicate. Bats naturally have quite poor eyesight, so they have to communicate in many different ways to make up for this weakness, but the reality is that bats communicate very effectively without the use of this sense.
This is the most common type of communication used by bats, and while much of the vocal sounds that are created are out of the range of the human ear, they use a variety of noises to fully utilize their vocal capacity. The variety of noises that can be produced by bats are created depending on the situation, and while they can sing to potential partners during the mating process, communication between males can often be at a lower pitch and sound more aggressive.
Scent And Pheromones
Another important way that bats communicate is through the use of scent and pheromones, and these also play a role in the mating process as the bats indicate if they are ready to mate. The scent can also be used to indicate a particular colony is living in an area, and many bat species have scent glands on their wings or near their faces for this purpose. This helps to replace the communication that isn't possible through the audio senses dedicated to echolocation.
The method used for echolocation by bats is that they will send out noises and then have advanced senses that allow them to identify objects and flying insects based on the reflection of the noises that they create. The important thing to remember is that bats use this for a variety of purposes, but the noises for echolocation aren't actually used for communication between the bats.
The Importance Of This Communication For Navigation
Being able to emit the high pitched noise and to sense the response that comes from the surrounding area plays an important role in the life of the bat, and with their poor eyesight they have to have another form of navigation. This highly advanced sense gives bats excellent spatial awareness, and also means that they are particularly efficient hunters when they are chasing and catching flying insects and other pest animals in the air.
What Prices Do We Charge?
Every job is different: the type of animals involved, is it in the attic or the yard, do you need repairs, etc. It's impossible to have set pricing in this industry. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: Like a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: Like to get critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: A project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up

Cartersville Animal News Clip: How To Use One-Way Exclusion Funnels To Remove Rats Without Trapping Them
There are many problems that come with having a rat infestation in your house, and these can range from hygiene and food contamination issues through to the problems that can be caused by other animals attracted by rats. The important thing is to make sure that you start to deal with the problem promptly, and while traps are the most common method, one-way exclusion funnels can also be used to deal with a rat problem.
Identifying The Entry Points Used By The Rats
The first step to use these funnels is to carry out a thorough survey of the area where you are looking to prevent the rats from getting into, and to try and find all of the places where the rats are getting in and out. There are a number of key signs that you can look for, as rats will usually leave brown smudges on walls and surfaces where they pass through and brush against these surfaces, while looking for feces can also indicate a high traffic area.
Installing The Funnels
Once you have examined the area to find all of the holes being used by the rats, then you can start the process to install the funnels by sealing all but one or two of the holes that are being used by the rats with chicken wire, metal flashing, or another material that cannot be easily chewed away. The funnels can then be installed on the remaining holes, and these are designed to allow the rats out, but to prevent them from being able to get back in again.
Sealing The Area Once The Rats Have Been Removed
Having monitored the area for a few days, if you are still seeing signs of a rat presence, then you will have missed one of the holes that it is using to get in and out of the area, and you will need to start searching again. If you don't see any further signs, then you can remove the funnels, and permanently seal the holes that the rats were using to get in and out.
Problems With This Method
In some cases, persistent rats may be able to gnaw these funnels from their holes, and you may have to use ones made from a material like metal rather than hardened plastic. The other problem that can occur in this case is that you may evict the rats from one part of your property, but they may just find their way into a different area of the property, which is why in some cases people will opt for trapping as a more effective solution.
