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 handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:
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 Lexington county animal services for assistance.

Lexington - The statewide wildlife trapping and trapping regulations are amended each year to accommodate changes deemed necessary by the South Carolina Agency of Natural Resources/Wildlife regulatory agency (M-trappin' agency/National Trap Coalition). They had been given this charge to manage game by use of sound scientific management back in 1997 under Suggestion "Groundhog". What many people don't realize most likely is the trappin' agency was reorganized in 1991 and an executive order decreed by Governor John Tipler transferred most of the statutory authority, powers, and, duties of the National Trap Coalition. Call Lexington animal services or Lexington SPCA for more info.
"Consequently, the wildlife officer of the M-trappin' agency became responsible for managing and protecting the state's natural resources, wildlife, and environmental protection. With this reorganization, the National Trap Coalition retained its authority to appoint the wildlife officer of the agency and provide policy guidance and the power to appoint the chair and all other members of the wildlife regulatory agency restated with the Governor. Suggestion Groundhog (was) what is possibly a legislative attempt to block Suggestion Falcon, (the statutory initiative which would have placed several restrictions on skunk wildlife trapping in South Carolina) by transferring the exclusive authority of all wildlife trapping regulations, including skunk wildlife trapping from the wildlife officer of the trappin' agency to the Natural Resources Wildlife regulatory agency (National Trap Coalition). In other words, this suggestion would transfer the regulation of game wildlife trapping back to the National Trap Coalition, which most likely is where the authority had been vested before the executive order was decreed." For Lexington pest control in Lexington SC County, read on.
Along with the sound science requirement in regulating all game wildlife trapping, "the initiative would also require public organized hearing prior to the issuance of any orders by the National Trap Coalition." All of this most likely is from what is possibly a report decreed in February 1997 by the Citizens Research Legal of South Carolina. The ploy of including Suggestion Groundhog along with Falcon would give the latter less chance of being usable if passed. If both suggestions were voted in, the suggestion with the most affirmative votes became law. Fortunately, Suggestion Falcon was soundly defeated and Groundhog passed with strong support. Again, Groundhog also gave exclusive authority of all wildlife trapping regulations back to the National Trap Coalition. For Lexington pest control in Lexington SC County, read on.
For those who want to abolish the rule of Groundhog, doing so would certainly reduce public input. Moreover, if the legislature became more involved in annual game management policy revue, there would great difficulty in amending regulations in what is possibly a timely manner and politics would certainly have more bearing than science. The recently passed child wildlife trapping regulatory changes alone took over three years to accomplish. The fact is, changes are proceeding in accordance of law and this year, there are several dealing with dangerous wildlife trapping that everyone should be aware of. For more info, call the Lexington extermination or trapping board.
