The Need for Humane Wildlife Control in Georgia and South Carolina

Our region is growing. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Georgia's population is one of the fastest-growing in the country. But as the human population increases, so do conflicts between humans and wildlife.

Rapid development is causing wild animals to be displaced from their natural homes. More and more wild animals are being forced to live near human-occupied areas, creating an increased need for humane animal removal.

At Rid-A-Critter, our emphasis is on humane wildlife management. The animals were here first, after all, and they're just trying to survive by adapting to the ever-growing number of humans moving into their neighborhoods.

But it's also true that when animals and humans live closer and closer to each other, incidents of property damage and animal attacks upon humans, domestic animals and livestock increase. And so, unfortunately, does the risk of zoonotic diseases like rabies, mange and other parasitic diseases, and histoplasmosis.

 

Animal Damage to Buildings

Water damage to wood caused by squirrel damage in Atlanta

Water damage to wood often occurs as a result of animal damage to roofs.

In addition to the health risks, animals and pests often cause physical damage to buildings, which ranges from nuisance-grade (such as the holes drilled by carpenter bees), to potentially devastating (such as the risk of fire created when squirrels, rats, or mice gnaw on the insulation of electrical wiring). Animal damage also can result in secondary moisture damage when animals damage shingles and flashing, allowing rain and moisture to get in to a home.

To reduce these risks and live in harmony with urbanized wildlife, we need humane, earth-friendly, professional animal control. At Rid-A-Critter, we know that wildlife management and environmental stewardship go hand in hand. We were providing "green" animal control services long before "green" became a buzz word.

Our crew of animal control professionals can humanely trap, remove, or relocate almost any nuisance animal from your home, commercial office building, church, barn, or anywhere else on your property, in accordance with all federal and state laws.

We provide environmentally-responsible animal control in Atlanta, Athens, Augusta, Macon, Columbus, Roswell, Marietta, Sandy Springs, Peachtree City, and all of Northern and Central Georgia; the Birmingham, Alabama Metro area and its suburbs; and Aiken, South Carolina and its surrounding areas.
