2) GUARANTEED CRITTER-PROOFING OR WILDLIFE EXCLUSION: We seal up your home with a FREE 2-year warranty with optional LIFETIME renewal! See our page on Animal-Proofing.
3) WILDLIFE PREVENTION: On most critters, we provide you with a list of any habitat modifications, which are things that you can change in your yard to make it less hospitable to wildlife. We get them OUT & Keep them OUT!
All of the Big Canoe Wildlife Professionals with our company are partners in this business. Each of us has a vested interest in the outcome & success of your job and your happiness. We are always courteous and attentive to all of your needs. We quickly assess the situation to determine which critter is causing the problem and devise a strategy to GET them out & keep them OUT! We will explain the problem and our process in a clear manner without using scare-tactics.
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 squirrel 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 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!
Having rats invade your home, whether one or many, can be a terrifying experience for some. We try to calm the nerves and assure our clients that it will not be long before the situation is under control. When we trap inside a home we use covered and 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. It gets the ones that are in the home out. Our Big Canoe Wildlife & 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!
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 every 3 months having one of our techs come out and strategically applying repellent. 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 Big Canoe 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. All of our work comes with a FREE 2-year warranty with optional LIFETIME renewal!
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 most are protected 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 Big Canoe there is obviously a healthy population of both Fox & Coyote. We are very selective about the trapping jobs that we accept for predators. The circumstance & 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.
Possum trapping is 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.
We respond immediately to dead animal calls. 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 Damage Repair & Clean-up services are separate from wildlife exclusion services. Big Canoe Wildlife exclusion services involve the act of sealing a home to prevent the future entry of wildlife. Damage repair & clean-up involves repairing any damage, that is within our skillset, that is a direct cause of wildlife and removing feces and sanitizing the area. This does not mean we crawl around the attic picking up each dropping from a squirrel or rat. This is in a situation where there is a communal latrine or a lot of feces.
