Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Buckhead, GA

Buckhead Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Buckhead 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 Buckhead, and I recommend the following:

Critter Control
Cell Phone: 770-627-0550

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Fulton County Animal Services: (404) 613-0358



Critter Control 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 Critter Control 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 770-627-0550 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 Fulton 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


Critter Control is a full-service Buckhead wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Buckhead pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Critter Control 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.

  Buckhead 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 Buckhead raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Critter Control. 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 Buckhead 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 Buckhead 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 Buckhead 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 Buckhead pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Buckhead 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 Buckhead trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Buckhead 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. Critter Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Critter Control. 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. Critter Control also provides dead animal removal in Buckhead. 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 Buckhead 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 Buckhead. And remember, we are a private business, not Fulton County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (404) 613-0358. Fulton County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Buckhead Wildlife Tip #1:
What should I do with a house mouse after I catch it?

If you have a mouse infestation, you are probably only concerned about them being gone and don't stop to think about what to do with a body or a live mouse. When you set a trap, chances are you are going to be left with a mouse, albeit live or dead. If you find yourself with a mouse corpse, pleas handle it properly as these little vermin can cause some big health problems, even after they are dead. The carcass will also attract a host of bugs and larger carrion feeders if left out. There are a few ways to dispose of the body. If you live in a heavily wooded area, you could take the body several hundred feet in to the woods and allow nature to take its course. If that is not an option, you can bury the mouse (several feet deep so nothing digs it back up) to keep it from smelling, spreading bacteria, and attracting unwanted guests. You can also wrap the mouse in a plastic bag and deposit it in an (outside) trash receptacle for garbage pickup. Keep in mind that if you do that, if it must sit for more than a couple of days, the results could be disgusting!

If you live trap a mouse you now have a living creature to deal with. You must do this quickly! The mouse is already panicked, and will probably not take food or water while trapped, so don't make it suffer anymore. When you live trap a mouse, you have the choice of releasing t, or killing it. If you decide to kill it, a humane way is to submerge THE ENTIRE trap in water for 10 minutes. The you have a body to deal with (as seen above). You can take the mice off a distance of 5 or more miles and release them into the woods. At that distance, they should not be able to return, but they may or may not survive, depending on the environment. You could call a wildlife rehabilitator that can take them off your hands. These are professionals that rescue all types of creatures. They know how to care for them, and have areas for safe release. You can find a reputable service in your phone book, or by calling your local agricultural extension agency.

No matter what choice you make, always handle rodents (dead or alive) carefully. Use gloves, a mask and goggles to avoid the spread of any bacteria, and always clean yourself and the area thoroughly!

Buckhead 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 Critter Control, any time of day, at 770-627-0550, for a price quote for Buckhead wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Buckhead, GA.
