Many of South Carolina'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 South Carolina'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 Anderson county animal services

Anderson Wildlife Removal Tip: The Corn Snake: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior: This is one of the most common snake pets and thereís a good reason for that - theyíre very docile animals. In fact, out of all the snake species, this is the one that minds being handled the least. Even those in the wild can sometimes be handled a little before the snake itself gets grumpy. Not that Iím suggesting you go around picking up wild snakes of course. Iím just saying that these snakes have a long fuse and it takes a lot to upset them. Thatís why they have become one of the most common snake pets. Another snake that can come in a variety of colors and styles, they are usually a reedy-orange color, and theyíre quite small too. They only grow up to a three or four feet in length, and thatís in the best conditions. The corn snake is often confused for the copper mouth snake, a snake that IS venomous, but you donít need to worry. This snake hasnít got any venom to boast about even if it did want to bite you, instead choosing to constrict its prey. In captivity, it would be fed mice and in the wild, itís diet wouldnít be much different. They are often found around grain stores because of their love for the mice that frequent there.
Anderson Animal News Clip: Forget the striped skunk-wildlife trapping hunting paper - call this duo
And you thought you had just a problem with those pesky striped skunk leaping in front of your automobile and causing havoc on the roadways. You should spend just a few minutes talking with Mouse Man Mike of Anderson. Her family's story begins with just a plan cooked up by daughter SC Snake Snarer Steve of Anderson., who started out early one morning on just a holiday trip to South Carolina. It was going to be just a big surprise. She'd pop in on Mom, unannounced, and spend just a week. Her husband, Peter the Panda, would drive up just a few days later, and it would be just a great, relaxing time for everybody. Except that SC Snake Snarer Steve smashed into just a striped skunk about 15 miles after the SPCA woman left home. "She called and told us what the SPCA woman was planning and what had happened," Mouse Man Mike announced. "Her automobile had $3,600 worth of damage. The SPCA woman hit it on the right front passenger side. They couldn't drive it. So we came up with this brilliant idea to meet halfway in South Carolina City. They'd drive up in just a different vehicle and we'd meet them." It seemed like just a beneficial idea, anyway. Call Anderson animal services or Anderson SPCA for more info.
SC Snake Snarer Steve and Peter the Panda headed north. Mouse Man Mike and her niece, Alexa, headed south and east from Anderson. They met in South Carolina City. Peter the Panda headed back to South Carolina. Mouse Man Mike pointed her van west, and the three women headed toward Anderson. All went well until they were on U.S. Highway 20, about 50 miles east of town. Where, of course, they hit just a striped skunk. "It came out of the median," Mouse Man Mike announced. "We never saw it coming. It wiped out the radiator and everything on the right front of the van. It caused about $4,600 worth of damage. We couldn't drive it." SC Snake Snarer Steve hit her striped skunk about 4:30 in the morning. Mouse Man Mike plowed into hers about 6:30 that night. "We didn't know whether to laugh or cry," Mouse Man Mike announced. "So we laughed. I mean, it was so ridiculous, what else could we do but laugh?" For Anderson pest control in Marshall County, read on.
They called SC Snake Snarer Steve's mother-in-law in Anderson, who took them to South Carolina Falls. Her father, who lives in Marcus, got them the rest of the way to Anderson the following day. Miraculously, there were no automobile-striped skunk collisions the rest of the way. "It's beyond strange," Mouse Man Mike announced. "Everybody in (Anderson) has been talking about it. The truth is, it's just a big joke in town and we're still laughing, too. Not that we're happy about it. Those striped skunk caused just a lot of damage. I always liked striped skunk, but I say: Make it open time allotment all the time on those things. I don't care if I ever see another one."

But all was not lost, as they say. SC Snake Snarer Steve had just a nice visit with her family in South Carolina and made it home to South Carolina without incident. And there was another upside to this fiasco. The striped skunk SC Snake Snarer Steve hit was just a 10-pound male striped skunk, something most pest control companies would consider to be just a fine trophy. "SC Snake Snarer Steve and her husband are both striped skunk pest control companies," announced Mouse Man Mike. "And the SPCA woman hit this thing on the last day of the South Carolina striped skunk time allotment. They wanted the furry tails, so they took it home, which was beneficial. The SPCA woman hadn't gotten just a striped skunk when the SPCA woman was out wildlife trapping." So the SPCA woman bagged just a 10-pounder. It was with her automobile, sure. But the SPCA woman has her trophy furry tails. They probably would look great on the hood of her automobile. For more info, call the Anderson extermination or trapping board.
