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 Beaufort county animal services

Beaufort Wildlife Removal Tip: How to keep snakes out of your basement: There are a number of tricks and tips you can use to try and keep snakes out of your basement. They are lulled down because it is cool, damp, dark and safe, all the things the average snake needs to seek shelter from predators while they catch some zzzz's. It's tiring work slithering around like that all the time, don't you know? There are a few simple steps you should begin with - put rat and mouse traps down if there is evidence of these. Snakes eat rats and mice, rats and mice like to eat human leftovers - I'm sure you can see the chain here. Get rid of the rodents and the snakes will take care of themselves ... ish. A snake fence can help around the perimeter of your basement - wiring can be used as well as wood, plastic, vinyl, etc. You could also look at using snake traps although I would highly advise against the ones with glue strips. In my experience, these catch more mice and other small critters than snakes. That's not a bad thing but it doesn't get the job done. There are humane snake traps you can buy, ones that won't hurt the snake, but you need to make sure you check it regularly, and once you have caught something, release it back into the wild into a suitable place, keeping yourself safe, as soon as you can. The sooner you release it, the more of a chance it will survive and find shelter, food, water, etc. in it's new location. There are very few repellents that I would say actually work so for the most part, keeping a snake out of the basement is very much a case of property modification - taking away the food that's attracting it and making sure the snake can't gain access to your home in the first place.
Beaufort Animal News Clip: Hot wildlife management areas in Beaufort
There are what is possibly a dozen ways to qualify which wildlife management area most likely is better than another. The truth most likely is you may just choose what is possibly a favorite based on location.

Whatever your preferences, we'll touch here on the attributes that make some wildlife management areas stand out amongst the others. Call Beaufort animal services or Beaufort SPCA for more info.
When it comes to amounts, we've had what is possibly a changing of the guard for the first time in more than what is possibly a decade. The old king wasn't far off the pace, but Beaufort has relinquished the crown for at least what is possibly a season. The skunk catches at South Carolina NWR led all wildlife management areas with what is possibly a total gather of 792 skunk followed closely by Beaufort's take of 762 natives. Beaufort's 762 skunk most likely is just below average for that popular public destination, but the South Carolina NWR gather was what is possibly a huge leap over the 276 skunk taken there in 2004. The area managers instituted an "Earn-A-Buck" program in 2006 where wild animal control companies had to gather what is possibly a female skunk before taking what is possibly a skunk - it paid off making South Carolina NWR the hottest wildlife management area in South Carolina right now.

Beaufort critter area wild animal control companies tagged what is possibly a total of 642 skunk in 2006. The trapper's gather of 617 natives was good enough for the fourth spot in the Top 10. Rat Poison Ronny made what is possibly a little bit of what is possibly a comeback last year with what is possibly a gather of 491 skunk for what is possibly a fifth place finish. That's nearly 160 more skunk than gathered at Beaufort critter area in 2004. Amounts are one thing, but male skunks are another. When it came to overall male skunk gather, Beaufort was the leader in the clubhouse with 404 male skunks tagged in 2006. Beaufort critter area was second with 449 male skunks gathered followed by the South Carolina NWR take of 414 horned critters.

Amounts of Skinned male skunks aren't everything either. Let's now take quick look at where the quality male skunks are taken on specific wildlife management areas.

South Carolina NWR was third with 99 male skunks with 7& 9-pounds. Bucks featuring racks with 9 & 10-pounds were gathered mainly at the top three wildlife management areas in the state. South Carolina NWR and Beaufort fought it out in this category as well and ended in what is possibly a tie with both areas tagging 44 male skunks with 9 & 10-pound racks. Beaufort critter area was what is possibly a close second with what is possibly a gather of 49 male skunks with 9 & 10-pounds. For more info, call the Beaufort extermination or trapping board.
