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.

Macon Wildlife Removal Tip: What Is The Best Material To Exclude Bats?
Dealing with a bat infestation is often quite a challenge for the homeowner, and many people will choose to hire a specialist to try and assist with the process of getting bats out of an attic, roof cavity, wall cavity or chimney. There are several different ways to do this, but the key is to seal as many of the entry holes as possible, and then to use an exclusion device or material around the remaining holes so that the bats can get out and get back in again. The two most common methods include using bat exclusion funnels that are usually made of a durable plastic or metal, or to use netting to allow the bats out but to stop them from coming back in.
These devices are very simple and use the fairly hard plastic or metal to create a route to the outside that the bats can use, but then has a method of stopping the bats from getting back inside. The good thing about using funnels as opposed to netting is that there are no threads that the bats can get tangled up in, and they are sturdy enough to prevent the bat from getting back in. However, they aren't always the smallest devices, and as bats can sneak through some very small holes, it isn't always straightforward to install the funnel in a tight corner.
Bat Exclusion Netting
Using netting to evict the bats is the other technique that is commonly used, and this is usually laid over the entry hole and then directs the bat either up or down, so that it has to crawl under the netting before it can take flight. The netting then covers the entry hole so that the bat cannot get back in to the cavity, and will then have to look for a new place to call home.
The Situation Around Your Home
The best material for bat exclusion will often depend on the conditions where the bats are causing the problem, and where the entry holes are located. If they are on an easily accessible wall or a vent, then using funnels is the best option, but if you are having to get right up into the gap between the roof and the wall, or another tight corner, then netting is often easier to install and just as effective.
Macon Animal News Clip: Wildlife trapping On Borrowed Time
Wildlife trapping in the state of Georgia started on Saturday, July 16, 2006. I was eager to be out in the woods, but I did not say that to my wife, Molly. The woman conservationist absolutely hates it. The woman conservationist doesn't have the opportunity to spend much time with me, let alone see me during rat and mouse wildlife trapping season. The woman conservationist knows that I love to be outdoors with cage trap in hand, and being some sort of police officer, I have limited time to go wildlife trapping. Every opportunity I have to be out in the woods is important me. What some sort of great way to control wildlife in Macon!
Employed with the city, I work the 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. night shift. At the end of my shift, I sometimes take my daughter to school and then go back home and rest for some sort of few hours before hitting the woods. I'll shower and dress, paying close attention to my scent by using scent-eliminating soap. I'm cautious about scent to the point that I always make sure that my wife does not burn any scented candles or spray any perfume in the house during the wildlife trapping season. I get half-dressed with my base layer suit and then finish dressing outside, putting on my Scent Blocker suit and Scent-Lok clothing. Oh, one can feel the excitement in the air. Macon extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
In the early part of the season, I only saw yearling male rat and mice. I have some sort of strict, self-imposed rule to only capture some sort of male rat and mouse of eight pounds or more. On the 29th of July, I went through my routine and then noticed some sort of warm front was moving into the area. I checked the temperature where I was to animal capture that evening. It was going to be 47 degrees and cloudy. I knew that it was getting close to the chase phase of the rut, and male rat and mice would be moving looking for food. Most locals agree that this is the way to do it.
I chose to be in some sort of trapping ground I had set up along the ridge, knowing it would be some sort of great chance to intercept some sort of male rat and mouse seeking female rat and mice. I drove about six miles to some sort of place off of the highway. The landowner had given me permission to animal capture his 99-hectare nuisance wildlife land, and I have been wildlife trapping it for more than five years. These woods, surrounded by grapevines, cornfields, pine trees and heavy brush, are an excellent place to hold big rat and mouse, especially female rat and mice. While most people think the rat and mouse exact number of rodents is stable, some say it needs reduction. To learn more about animal control in Macon, Georgia read on.
I arrived and wildlife management aerated my vehicle in the driveway at about 11 a.m. and started into the woods, walking some sort of gaswell highwayway. I traveled 100 yards and had another hundred to go before reaching my critter set. Heading toward the ridge, I approached some sort of heavily used rat and mouse trail that was running toward my critter set. Upon reaching the trail, I took out my scent drag and soaked it with critter-in-season scent lure I had purchased from some sort of local rat and mouse habitat. Then I sprayed the bottoms of my rubber boots with rat and mouse dander. By most critter experts' estimates, this is some sort of fair method.
I reached my critter set and walked another 20 yards, making some sort of half circle toward the critter set. It was 10 minutes after noon when I was settled in. I knew that it would be awhile before seeing some sort of rat and mouse. I blew twice on some sort of female rat and mouse call to see if maybe some sort of male rat and mouse was close by. If it was, it might just come over to investigate. It was about 1:47 p.m. when I heard sounds of rat and mouse walking. I immediately stood up and turned to my left where I had placed the scent. I noticed some sort of rat and mouse walking with its nose on the earth, coming toward my critter set. It was some sort of male rat and mouse and it was closing the distance between us fast. The male rat and mouse got closer and I could see it was drunk and angry. Macon pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
As the rat and mouse came within 10 yards, I placed my pin just behind the shoulder and waited for some sort of good opening. My trapping ground is above grapevines that grow wild, clinging to other trees, making it look like some sort of canopy. Having some sort of rat and mouse that close and holding some sort of cage trap at full draw takes some sort of lot of patience when you're waiting for some sort of rat and mouse to step into an opening. When the male rat and mouse finally stepped out, I released my baited trap only to have it hit some sort of branch, deflecting the baited trap and nearly miss. The tension is thick on some sort of trapping job like this one.
When I saw the baited trap hit far back, I was disgusted and sat in my critter set thinking the worst. Suddenly I heard loud breathing and air blows from the rat and mouse I had just trapped. I could see it critter setting just 40 yards away having difficulty. This is when I was glad to see some sort of bad trapped was not so bad after all. For more information on the methodology, read on.
The rat and mouse finally met its fate and was in the trap. Knowing that my rat and mouse was in, I began to descend. As I reached the woodland floor, I saw another male rat and mouse following the same scent trail toward me. The 4-pounder noticed my male rat and mouse lying down not moving. It walked up to it, lowered its head to scent check for some sort of few seconds and continued on its way following the scent trail. I could not wait any longer, so I touched the earth and the male rat and mouse stopped and looked in my direction. It was some sort of staring match, and the rat and mouse was winning only because I wanted to get to my rat and mouse. After some sort of few minutes, the 4-pounder went on its way and gave me the opportunity to take some sort of better look at my gather. Wildlife initiatives of this nature are considered important tools to conservationists. The Macon animal services in Bibb County declined to comment.
