If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Bainbridge home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Georgia wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular
pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Bainbridge, and I recommend the following:
Trutech Wildlife Services
Cell Phone: 229-233-0855
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Decatur County Animal Services: (229) 246-0101
Trutech Wildlife Services specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Georgia also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Trutech Wildlife Services is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 229-233-0855
to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
- Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
- Fully Georgia and Decatur County licensed and insured
- Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Trutech Wildlife Services is a full-service Bainbridge wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Bainbridge pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Trutech Wildlife Services performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Bainbridge wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Georgia to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement
is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know.
Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Georgia law. We offer Bainbridge raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Trutech Wildlife Services. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live
and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Bainbridge squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed.
Never, ever use poison! Most Bainbridge exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Bainbridge rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Georgia is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and
cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Bainbridge pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Bainbridge bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Bainbridge trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Bainbridge wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points
into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Trutech Wildlife Services does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Trutech Wildlife Services. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc.
Read about how to get rid of opossums
. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks
. Trutech Wildlife Services
also provides dead animal removal in Bainbridge. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Bainbridge snake removal - most of the snakes in Georgia are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Bainbridge. And remember, we are a private business, not Decatur County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (229) 246-0101.
Decatur County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Bainbridge Wildlife Tip #1:What To Do About A Raccoon On The Roof
If a raccoon is present on the roof then the most likely reason would be that they have torn open a hole or maybe found one in the attic. So they are living there and then crawling up the roof again and again. Now if they are on the roof then you can trap and remove them. But you need to be aware that raccoons are excellent climbers. This makes it difficult to stop them from climbing the roof. They can easily climb up and are able to ascend almost all the corners of the house. So you can do following things if there are raccoons present on the roof of your house.
If you have a tree right next to house, then it is like stating the obvious. So may want to trim down that tree and stop raccoons from getting on the roof.
You have to find out if they are present there for shelter. If yes then you can remove all the debris or the gaps present under the eaves. Also you have to eliminate the old branches present on the roof. Try installing steel mesh (by drilling it). This way you can prevent them from accessing the gaps.
The most likely reason of the presence the of raccoons on the roof is that they have their way into the attic. So you have to do a full inspection of your attic and find out all the entry points if there is any. Once you have found out all the entry points, then start shutting them out one by one.
Raccoons can do a lot of damages. They can tear up the eaves, and roof too. So you have to beware of the damage that can be done by them. Also there is high possibility that you can find raccoon poop on the roof so do not touch it or step on it.
After getting all the required information, you can go for trapping the raccoons. There are a lot of traps present through which you can successfully carry out the task. One thing to note here is that you always have to go for live trapping. There is no point in using lethal traps and killing the raccoons. Also be careful that you might face a litter of baby raccoons along with their mother as this is the most common case. So if you go for trapping the adult, check for visible nipples which confirm that they are nursing raccoons.
You have to set the traps on the roofs carefully as most of the roofs are slanted. Use heavy duty screws and washers to tightly and securely set up the trap.
Bainbridge Wildlife Tip #2:
Georgia Wildlife Information:
Georgia State bird: Brown thrasher
State mammal: Right whale
State reptile: Gopher tortoise
State amphibian: American green tree frog
State fish: Largemouth bass
State insect: European honeybee
There are many delightful things about Georgia. The landscape is thick with vegetation, primarily due to the significant amount of precipitation annually and the hot temperatures. Even in the northern mountains, the days are long and hot, often interrupted by brief spats of rain. Forest and field thrive here, and Georgia is also home to one of the places in the country teeming with wildlife: Okefenokee Swamp. The swamp, which consists of 438,000 acres of marshland, is home to over 200 species of birds, 50 mammal species, 64 reptile species, 39 fish species, and 37 species of amphibian. Of those animals, the largest are the alligators and the black bears. These predators have no trouble locating food within the park's boundaries. Smaller animals, like raccoons, feed off of the eggs laid by marsh birds and reptiles alike. Not surprisingly, dangerous animals, like the cottonmouth snake, also make the swamp home.
Though filled with animals, the swamp makes up only a small part of Georgia. The rest of the state is just as populated with critters, and because it is also densely populated with people, clashes between the species are inevitable.
Alligators are not confined to Okefenokee Swamp. These large reptiles have no fear of humans, and they make their homes in any waterway where food is present. People living near rivers and streams must always be on the lookout for the dangerous alligator; the animal is almost invisible when underwater.
Even common pest animals fall prey to alligators. Raccoons, which are frequent invaders of homes, can get too close to the water's edge and be snatched up as a meal. This is one reason why it is important to keep pest animals like armadillos, raccoons, rats, squirrels, and skunks off of your property. Sometimes they will lure in larger, more fearsome creatures.
Rats and other scavengers are common in Georgia. The heat amplifies the odors of discarded food, and it doesn't take long in the summer sun for a rat, opossum, or raccoon to wander into the yard looking for the compost pile or the open garbage bin. Pet food is another aromatic lure for these small creatures. The nights in Georgia are not cool enough to temper a smell, and many pests wait until after dark to strike.
You can always call Trutech Wildlife Services, any time of day, at 229-233-0855, for a price quote for Bainbridge wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Bainbridge, GA.
