We provide a two-step approach to getting the squirrels out & keeping them out. Trapping alone is not the solution, it is the 1st step. Our Dahlonega squirrel trapping services are always a one-week endeavor. We are there every single day checking the traps and doing whatever we have to do to make the most out of your trapping dollars. It is the law in the State of Georgia that squirrels are cage trapped and released unharmed in their natural environment. So we do just that. While we are there every day we have the opportunity to inspect your home to determine what we would have to seal on your home, using critter-proof material, to keep the squirrels from coming into your home again. We provide you with a no-obligation quote to squirrel-proof (a.k.a. exclusion) your home. Our exclusion comes with a FREE 2-year warranty with optional LIFETIME renewal!
Spotting rats inside your home can be a terrifying experience for some. We try to calm the nerves and assure our clients that we can & will get it resolved quickly! When we trap inside a home we use covered (protected) traps for discretion and child/pet safety. Same as with our squirrel trapping, rat trapping involves a two-step approach to getting the rats out & keeping them out. Trapping alone is not the solution, it is the 1st step. Trapping gets the rats that are in the home out but does nothing to prevent future guests. Our rat trapping services are always a one-week endeavor. We are there every day checking the traps and doing whatever we have to do to make the most out of your trapping dollars. It is the law in the State of Georgia that the traps have to be checked every day. So we do just that. While we are there every day we have the opportunity to inspect your home to determine what we would have to seal on your home, using critter-proof material, to keep the rats & mice from coming into your home again. We provide you with a no-obligation quote to rodent-proof (a.k.a. exclusion) your home. Our exclusion comes with a FREE 2-year warranty with optional LIFETIME renewal!
Dahlonega Snake Control calls are an everyday call. Heck, actually they are prolific in all of Georgia! Snake Control takes more than one measure and that is why we are so successful at keeping snakes out of our client’s yards! We send a licensed & trained Wildlife Technician to your property to scour for snakes for 1/2 hour. We understand snakes and can simply look at your yard and know where the snakes would tend to hide. We remove any snakes that we find. We also provide you with a list of things in your yard that you can change to make it less hospitable to snakes, this is called habitat modification. The less comfort the snakes find your property to be… the less likely they are to stick around. So please take these habitat modifications seriously.
We now offer a snake prevention program that involves our Techs coming out and strategically applying repellent every 3 months. Our repellent is the only repellent that we have found that we can believe in. It is safe for plants, kids, and pets. It lasts around 3 months so we offer an annual program with quarterly retreats. These measures, combined, are the most that we can do as humans to try to keep snakes out of your yard. Call us (678)935-5900
Let us start by sharing an important fact with you… Bats are a PROTECTED species. No matter who handles removing the bats, bats cannot be harmed in the process. Harming a bat can result in hefty fines so we encourage you to hire specially trained LICENSED Dahlonega Bat Removal Specialists. When we come out to perform an inspection. We give you a price to remove the bats (either hand removal or using a one-way valve), to seal the home so they cannot come back in and to clean up any guano. If the price is acceptable, we get started immediately to evict the bats. WHAT MAKES US STAND OUT is the FREE 2-year warranty with optional LIFETIME renewal!
If you have a bat flying around the INSIDE of your home there are some important steps that need to be taken after the bat is in custody: click here or you can go to our main page for bat removal & control measures.
Our approach to controlling a mole situation usually involves Two (2) standard measures: Trapping & Baiting.
MOLE TRAPPING: The first step is setting traps in the active tunnels. These traps are designed to kill them quickly underground & humanely.
MOLE BAITING: When appropriate we can strategically place mole bait underground to attract the moles and once they eat the bait they die. We flag where there is bait and have a method to retrieve bait before we leave if they have not taken the bait away or eaten it all. Either way, the problem is resolved.
As a stand-alone service, not included in the trapping or baiting program is our stellar gassing program.
MOLE GASSING: When the situation is appropriate, we can utilize equipment designed to kill moles inside their tunnels using a carbon monoxide gas.
This process uses a Carbon Monoxide Device that utilizes a smoke oil tracer to show you where most of the Carbon Monoxide is going. Carbon Monoxide can be used as an effective approach to control of burrowing rodents. As the Carbon Monoxide enters the burrow system, the rodent breathes it in. The Carbon Monoxide then replaces the oxygen in their blood. And without oxygen, cells in the body die and organs stop working.
Our mole control program is the most we can do as humans to have the upper hand in controlling the mole population in our yard.
Be careful when dealing with birds, all but 3 species are protected birds and harming one comes with some hefty fines! When it comes to Nuisance Birds the damage they can do is often underestimated. Once the situation warrants bringing Wildlife Control company out to get involved drastic measures have to be taken. Each situation is different. We have options: some we can trap with a permit if the circumstances are right. We can offer hazing services without a permit. The type of hazing devices either electronic or manual auditory or visual depends on the species of bird. There are lots of options for removing the birds, scaring them off and keeping them away. We can help!
In Dahlonega, there is obviously a healthy population of both Fox & Coyote. We are very selective about the coyote & fox trapping jobs that we accept. The circumstances & setting has to be right for us to get involved. All predator trapping (fox trapping & coyote trapping) are two-week jobs which include daily trap checks. Not only is it the LAW accordance to our licensure but it is humane & less of a liability. We have only one Licensed Wildlife Trapper who specializes in the predators. Call us to discuss the details of your situation.
Raccoon trapping is in a class of its own. The trapping is a one-week endeavor as the rodents with daily trap checks as well. Where this differs is we do not necessarily provide a quote to seal a home when it is only a raccoon problem. We like using full disclosure when outlining the benefits of a full home exclusion. When we seal a home from rodents a raccoon can come along and tear the shingles off, siding off, or trim boards and gain entry to a sealed home. We do not like giving people a false sense of security when it comes to keeping raccoons out. Here is the way to avoid getting them in your attic. Most raccoons like living outside and have never experienced the comfort & security of moving into an attic. The ones who are familiar with the attic lifestyle, as soon as you hear them trying, get someone out to trap and remove them. They can be tenacious and mischievous. We have to control the population in your yard as well as remove the ones that want inside your attic.
Beaver trapping services (Aquatic species) is a specialized trapping service that we provide. These jobs, like predator trapping, are for 2 weeks at a time and not the standard 1-week timeframe. Here is the biggest concern we have with the industry as a whole…. before you hire any trapper to make sure they perform the daily trap checks that are required by law. Period! The price charged for beaver trapping depends on the size and type of waterway, the area that the Beaver Trapper has to travel to set & check his traps as well as the terrain. When you call us to discuss the problem we will provide you with a range for the trapping based upon your specific job needs and circumstances. We also provide dam removal services where we restore the natural water flow when we are done trapping.
Possums are beneficial as the nighttime clean-up crew. They remove a lot of things that you would not want in your yard anyways. Possums are probably one of the easier trapping services that we provide since possums are not the smartest of the animals we have in Georgia. When we trap & remove the possums, if there was a den site on your property, we can provide you with a quote to treat the ticks and fleas that have more likely infested the den. This trapping service also is for a one-week timeframe. We are there every single day checking the traps and removing any possums that we catch.
If you have a dead animal in your yard, attic or in a wall… it doesn’t matter where it is. If in a wall or attic we can search for the source and offer means of removal & odor control. If it is in your yard we can pick it up and you do not have to be home. We will grab it and get payment over the phone and email the receipt. Some of the dead animals that we pick up are:
dead deer | dead raccoons | dead dog | dead coyotes | dead opossums | dead fox | dead birds | dead animals of any kind | dead snakes |
Animal removal services do not restrict their work to removal of the offending animals. We will offer to mend any destruction of the property caused by wild animals. We will repair the animal damage, clean up any feces, deodorize & sanitize any messes left behind which will eliminate any kind of offensive smell left behind by these animals. If the offensive smell is not promptly eliminated, it can draw more animals back to your residence. It is however recommended that you first do some research to get to know the companies that you want to hire since not all of them are licensed or insured.
