If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Harrisburg home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in North Carolina 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 Harrisburg, and I recommend the following:
Carolinas Wildlife Management
Cell Phone: 704-307-4733
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Cabarrus County Animal Services: (704) 920-3288
Carolinas Wildlife Management specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. North Carolina also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Carolinas Wildlife Management 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 704-307-4733
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 North Carolina and Cabarrus 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
Carolinas Wildlife Management is a full-service Harrisburg wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Harrisburg pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Carolinas Wildlife Management 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.
Harrisburg wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in North Carolina 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 North Carolina law. We offer Harrisburg raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Carolinas Wildlife Management. 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 Harrisburg 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 Harrisburg 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 Harrisburg rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. North Carolina 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 Harrisburg pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Harrisburg 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 Harrisburg trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Harrisburg 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. Carolinas Wildlife Management does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Carolinas Wildlife Management. 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
. Carolinas Wildlife Management
also provides dead animal removal in Harrisburg. 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 Harrisburg snake removal - most of the snakes in North Carolina are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Harrisburg. And remember, we are a private business, not Cabarrus County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (704) 920-3288.
Cabarrus County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Harrisburg Wildlife Tip #1:Will homeowners insurance pay for pigeon damage?
Will homeowners insurance pay for pigeon damage? The answer to this is sometimes. They will also provide for accidental coverage. Nevertheless, there will always be a limit to the coverage. But, most insurance companies will provide the coverage on damages brought by pests. If you will consider a complete accidental coverage, the company will provide you with insurance for pest damage. Prior to insurance companies that do not provide cover for certain damages brought by pests, they basically provide cover for damages brought by wild animals.
Insuring Home against Pigeons is Uncommon
If you will insure your home against pigeons, keep in mind that it is quite uncommon. Other than the pigeons, animals like insects may also destroy some of the important items to find in your home. Birds like pigeons may fall from the chimney. They may also cause damages to the roof. The problem is that invasions of the pigeon will not be covered. This is also even if you already have paid for the accidental damage cover.
Make Claims on the Property Insurance if Un-domesticated Animals Like Pigeons Cause Damages to your Property
You will still be able to make claims on the property insurance. This is in the event that an un-domesticated animal causes damages to your property. If you have seen pigeons flying into your windows or door, this will apply in your part making claims. But, you will still need to have a paid coverage for an extra accidental damage. This way, you will be able to make those claims.
Insurance Companies Consider Damages by Pigeons as Maintenance Issues
The majority of insurance companies consider damages brought by pigeons as maintenance issues. This only means to say that your insurance company will expect you to avoid the issues mentioned. You will need to eradicate some of the foods that they eat including bugs. This eradication process will help you to avoid them from bringing significant damages to the property. You will somehow need to pay for the damages brought by the pigeons. It is not the insurance company that will pay for it.
Insurance Company will cover you on a Long-term Damage
The insurance company may not entirely cover you for all the damages brought by pigeons. The good thing is that the company will cover you on a long-term damage. This will usually include an eventual collapse of the door, roof and other component. You may still rely on an insurance company for the repairs of the doors, walls and floors.
Harrisburg Wildlife Tip #2:
North Carolina Wildlife Information:
North Carolina State bird: Northern cardinal
State mammal: Gray squirrel
State reptile: Eastern box turtle
State fish: Channel bass
State insect: European honeybee
Few states have as nice of a geological flow as North Carolina. This state is divided almost into equal sections, making up three distinct habitat zones. The first zone, known as the coastal plain, starts with the sandy beaches by the Atlantic Ocean and heads inland through flat fields of tall grass. Eventually the land begins to rise upward, giving way to the central section of gentle foothills and thicker forests. The Appalachian Mountains make up the final, most inland section of the state. Here, the weather can be slightly cooler, though North Carolina is considered to have a consistently warm climate.
At the coast, beach-goers and business owners have to do daily battle with the scores of bold seagulls. These birds are fearless when it comes to people and pets, and they are so brazen they will often take food right away from people on the sand. Not only are the seagulls thieves, they eventually expel their waste all over the beach, sidewalks, and sea-side businesses. Other creature issues in the sand are related to jellyfish, which wash up on shore daily. These aquatic animals can sting even in death, and many an unwary, barefoot soul has stepped on the gelatinous pile and gotten stung.
North Carolina has a range of coastal islands called the Outer Banks. These islands are home to the Banker horse, a small, stocky animal with bloodlines originating form Spanish horses brought over with the explorers. These horses are protected because of their historical import, and they are allowed to roam free on the islands, walking across roadways and grazing in people's front yards. The wildlife agencies that oversee the horse population make sure they are free of infectious disease.
Large predators in the state stay mainly in the foothills and the mountains. These include coyotes and black bear. While shy, black bear have been known to destroy birdfeeders due to their love of birdseed. They will also take advantage of an unprotected garbage bin. Unlike coyotes, black bear will move on once the food supply has vanished. Coyotes, if in an urban setting, can be a threat to children and pets.
North Carolina also has a familiar list of nuisance animals such as the raccoon, opossum, skunk, woodchuck, porcupine, beaver, squirrel, rat, bat, and snake.
You can always call Carolinas Wildlife Management, any time of day, at 704-307-4733, for a price quote for Harrisburg wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Harrisburg, NC.
