  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?
  • Unwanted Wildlife on Property?
  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?
  • Digging Lawn or Under House?
  • We Can Solve It!
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 The 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 Oconee County animal control for wildlife issues.

Oconee County Wildlife Removal Tip: The South Carolina Copperhead Snake: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior: Copperheads are quite rare snakes and it can be very hard to identify them because they often take the form and appearance of other snakes. It’s a medium-sized snake that can grow to about two or three feet in length, and it has quite the bulky body and a wide head too. These two body characteristics normally warn you of a potentially venomous snake and with this one, that warning is well listened-to. The copperhead snake is venomous. The bad news is that these are bad-tempered snakes and will bite if provoked or threatened. It doesn’t take a lot to light their fuse, so to speak. At the same time, there is good news - the bad-tempered snake’s venom is not usually potent enough to cause too much long-lasting damage. It’ll just be very painful for a while and you will spend a few hours in the emergency room. The copperhead comes under the same ‘type’ of snake as the water moccasin and rattlesnake, two common venomous snakes in the US. They are pit vipers, given the name because of the pits in-between the eyes and nose, giving them the heat-sense to find prey and protect themselves from predators. The thing that gives these venomous snakes away is that the markings on the top of their bodies look a little like hourglasses. Other snakes may look like this one and vice versa, but their markings will be more irregular blobs than this structured hourglass shape.

Oconee County Animal News Clip: Do Pest Control Companies Help with Mice Control?

This is a question that many people have been asking for years. There are people who call a pest removal company the moment they discover that mice have been roaming about in their homes or gardens. While these people are not breaking any laws in doing so, let us find out whether pest control companies can be able to help you.

To start with, it is imperative to note that pest control companies use weak equipment compared to the metal cages that are needed to trap mice. Pests like insects and ticks are very small and powerless animals that can be trapped with net traps. However, mice are very talented diggers that will dig their way through the net traps in just a matter of seconds. This means that pest control companies are not the best choice for your mice issue.

The skillset needed to hunt down and capture mice is very different from the skills needed to trap a fly or any other insect. While waving a net trap can capture mosquitos and moths, you need a completely different technique when it comes to mice. Mice are very elusive creatures that need special skills in order to capture or kill them.

There are very many differences between tracking an insect or any other pest, and trapping a mouse. While a large number of flies buzz around a smelling material in an instance, mice cannot be pinpointed to one location at once. This means that tracking mice can be very difficult for a person who doesn’t know how to correctly do it. In addition, while insects tend to fly a lot, mice are known to be very elusive animals that can hide from humans in an instant. This makes it even more difficult for a pest control professional to handle mice control.

Even the type of poison that should be used to kill or paralyze mice is very different compared to the type and amount of poison needed to kill or paralyze pests like insects. This means that a pest control professional may not carry the same poisons that mice control needs. This makes them very unequipped to handle mice control thus making them ineffective and inefficient.

However, it should be noted that there are some poisons used on pests that can harm mice. In fact, a number of poisons that kill pests have been known to cause severe stomach pains on mice and rats. Although this may seem like a good idea, you should note that if the poisons cause digestive-track issues, then you can be sure that there may be diarrhea among the mice and such a mess is not a pleasant site.
