What pests will www.PestRemovalAtlanta.com commonly encounter?
Pests can come in many forms, but in Atlanta, Georgia there are certain animals and wildlife that are particularly troublesome. Knowing what to look for can make it easier to eradicate these nuisance pests and have your structure safeguarded to prevent future critter infestations. Due to humans having readily available sources of food and advantageous environments for their survival, it is not uncommon for critters to find their way into residential areas, businesses, schools and churches.
Coyote removal is becoming more common in Atlanta, Georgia due to more buildings taking over their territory. Raccoons are another animal that is commonly known to be a nuisance; from a distance or in a photograph they seem harmless, however when they enter the home it is soon realized just how strong they can be and how much destruction they can cause. Their favorite place for procreation is the attic of homes where it is warm and dry and with a regular food source within the building they will have no desire to leave.
We often think of squirrels as animals that inhabit trees rather than living in a building. However, Eastern Gray Squirrels are one of the most common species to cause problems for residents in Atlanta, because they also like to give birth (twice per year) in the attics of nearby structures. Squirrels are rodents & will chew electrical wiring, duct work, gutters, woodwork and trim, & just about anything else the squirrel can sink its teeth into. Additionally the damage they can cause to attic insulation in a short amount of time is very substantial.
The skunk’s infamous smell has been depicted in cartoons and definitely in comedies, but it’s not so funny when this animal makes its home under a building where people reside. To attract the opposite sex they emit the odor as well as for protection against predators which, although inviting to their love interest is not so nice for those that live there.
The opossum is a marsupial is also known to be a nuisance in homes & other structures. Unlike many animals that will shy away from humans, these will steal from your food sources and like to live nearby for convenience once they find one.
Groundhogs may have a whole day of celebration dedicated to them because of their ability to predict weather, but you don’t need to be psychic to know that having one digging holes into the ground around properties does not only look unsightly but can also cause expensive damage. With the average adult weighing more than a newborn baby the holes are huge and being a rodent they can multiply fast, as will the damage they cause. Other burrowing pests include the Nine Banded Armadillo and moles which build their homes under the ground in networks, but when surfacing leave mounds above. These deep tunnels can cause problems with the foundations of buildings needing extensive restoration work, as well as damage sod, grass, & other landscaping areas.
One of the most well known species of pests worldwide is the rat. The larger rats can weigh about 10lb or above. Most commonly removed in Atlanta, Georgia, the roof rat follows its namesake but will enter the home at ground level as well as attics to nest, roof rats are extremely acrobatic. They will also enter the living space to find food to bring back to the rodent nest. Rats coming in contact with human’s food supplies can spread disease. In addition, rodents & wildlife cause damage to the internal and external structure of the house while they commute to & from food / water sources and their rodent nesting areas.
Around 130 different species of snake lives in North America, out of all of them there are 20 that are venomous. One or more of these on your property could be extremely dangerous, which is why they should be removed immediately by a wildlife professional to prevent accidents. Most commonly removed snakes in Atlanta, Georgia include Rat Snakes, California King Snakes, Corn Snakes, Copperheads, & Water Moccasins. Timber Rattlesnakes can be found in Georgia, though the Metro Atlanta area does not see many of these aggressive & venomous snakes.
Bats may be nocturnal but can still be a nuisance when they colonize in lofts, sheds, attics, vents, eaves and other properties used by humans and pets. Bats are natural carriers of rabies & are protected by federal law. Removal should only be conducted by a professional animal removal service like Perimeter Wildlife Control. Our wildlife technicians are Georgia Department of Natural Resources certified to insure bats are removed in accordance with ALL laws & regulations. Additionally, the guano (feces) the bats excrete can create numerous health risks in and around your home in Atlanta, GA.
Pigeons in Atlanta are known for being unsanitary but being commonplace in urban areas it’s easy to see how they are also known as nuisance pests to control. Not only do they carry diseases, they have been around humans for so long they are happy to get in close proximity. The sheer amount of them and the availability of food that people drop or put into public bins mean that the droppings are everywhere! Pigeons as well as other birds will, continually return to roosting areas & birthing sites if a solution like Bird spikes, bird netting, visual bird deterrents, noise makers, or other products to control pigeons in Atlanta, GA.
How are the animals removed?
Depending on the type of emergency animal removal required in Atlanta, wildlife can be removed by hand with specialty equipment, the use of humane live traps is common when attempting to “trap and relocate” wildlife to their natural habitat. Animals that pose a risk to the health and safety of humans (ie: rats, raccoons, coyotes) will need to be disposed of to prevent them from causing risks, damages, or injuries elsewhere. After removal, those that were taken from an area where disease could be left behind the contaminated areas can be sanitized as part of a trapping service to ensure the safety of those that live or work in the home or building.
It’s one thing to remove nuisance wildlife & control critters and pests 24/7 in Atlanta, Georgia, but another to ensure they don’t return especially when conditions are extremely conducive in the Atlanta Metro area. If the critters made their way in once, they WILL do so over & over again. Wildlife Exclusion in Atlanta, is another service offered by Perimeter Wildlife Control, wildlife exclusions can be conducted as a preventative solution or a remedy to a currently active critter issue. This can be used when moving into a known pest area to ensure infestation and repopulation doesn’t occur in the first place or to a building/area where there have been previous problems. This is achieved by first sealing any primary areas that may be active entry points as well as secondary areas that will become entry points. Secondly continually trapping animals that may have been left inside when the structure was sealed is important to prevent critters from dying inside walls & inaccessible areas. Finally, Decontamination & Sanitizing of all active areas to get rid of smells that could attract further animals is recommended as well as attic insulation being removed & replaced as needed (soiled with dropping & urine, nesting materials, or non-sufficient insulation levels).
