If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Blairsville 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 Blairsville, and I recommend the following:
N & J Wildlife Professionals
Cell Phone: 706-671-6075
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Union County Animal Services: (706) 439-6052
N & J Wildlife Professionals 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 N & J Wildlife Professionals 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 706-671-6075

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:

- Fully Georgia and Union 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
N & J Wildlife Professionals is a full-service Blairsville wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Blairsville pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. N & J Wildlife Professionals 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.
Blairsville 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 Blairsville raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at N & J Wildlife Professionals. 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 Blairsville 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 Blairsville 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 Blairsville 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 Blairsville pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Blairsville 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 Blairsville trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Blairsville 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. N & J Wildlife Professionals does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by N & J Wildlife Professionals. 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.

. N & J Wildlife Professionals

call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Blairsville. And remember, we are a private business, not Union County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (706) 439-6052.

Blairsville Wildlife Tip #1: Do rats dig holes?
Rats are burrowers. One of the two species of the rats is burrowers and when they get a chance to, they will exploit every inch of the ground level. Norway Rat, likes to live closer to the ground while its other counterpart, the black rat likes to live far beyond the ground. However, if need be, the black rats will also dig holes on the ground if the homes are not available. One of the things that will make you very vigorous when it comes to the rat problem is the fact that rats will hurt your ornamental plants as well as food plants so take care.
The burrow entrance for the rats
The Norway rat will not just dig anywhere. There are some places that are so much susceptible of being attacked by the rats. These will form its first entrance to the holes. These areas include along the foundation, under an object, under the shrubs, below a wood pile, in weeds, near garbage, and under a dog house or shed. These are the common areas where the rats will begin their burrowing work. Therefore, in case you want to find out whether you have a rats burrowing problem in your home, these are the places that you need to begin looking.
When do they dig?
Rats will prefer moist garden soil for burrowing. A new burrow may have a fan of soil just next to the hole. Usually, the dirt which the rats will display is only 1 inch tall, much smaller compared to a mole burrow. In most cases, the rats will burrower at night. There is minimal disturbance and therefore, during this time, they can do a cleaner job.
Is the rat hole in use?
You are about to find that one out. In case you are wondering whether a rat hole is in use, the simple way to tell is by placing a wad of paper in the hole. Anything that is placed in a rat's hole serves as a good distraction for any of the rats activities. If in the next day or in the next few hours you will find the paper removed, then, that should tell you that the hole is very much active.
Rats are a pest. You do not need a pest in your garden. Therefore, you need to do something about this problem. Making the garden inhospitable is a common way to tell the rats that you do not want them near your property. Anything serving as an attractant to the animals needs to be removed.
Blairsville 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 N & J Wildlife Professionals, any time of day, at 706-671-6075, for a price quote for Blairsville wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Blairsville, GA.
