If you have a problem with wildlife in your Lawrenceville 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 Georgia and Lawrenceville, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Gwinnett County Animal Services: (770) 339-3200
Nextgen Pest Solutions 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 Nextgen Pest Solutions 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 404-334-2961 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Nextgen Pest Solutions is a full-service Lawrenceville wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Lawrenceville pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Nextgen Pest Solutions 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.
Lawrenceville 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 Lawrenceville raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Nextgen Pest Solutions. 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 Lawrenceville 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 Lawrenceville 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 Lawrenceville 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 Lawrenceville pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Lawrenceville 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 Lawrenceville trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Lawrenceville 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. Nextgen Pest Solutions does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Nextgen Pest Solutions. 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. Nextgen Pest Solutions also provides dead animal removal in Lawrenceville. 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 Lawrenceville 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 Lawrenceville. And remember, we are a private business, not Gwinnett County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (770) 339-3200. Gwinnett County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Lawrenceville Wildlife Tip #1:
What should I do if there is a raccoon in my attic - A raccoon in the attic might seem like the end of the world, but it could be worse; you could have a rat infestation. People will argue the merits of one over the other, but a raccoon isn't going to be sneaking through all the areas of your home in the way a rat would. Regardless, you need to have the animal trapped and removed before you can think about fortifying your house. One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make is sealing up the raccoon hole when they see the animal leave the building. The problem with this is that most raccoons inside of a home are mothers. Somewhere inside there is a litter of kits that will be crying to be fed in a few hours. Not only will the mother return to your attic, if she can't get in, she'll try to create a new opening. If she's unsuccessful and you never remove the babies, you'll eventually be hunting through your walls looking to remove stinking corpses. The smell of a dead animal can take months to dissipate, and you can only imagine what multiple decaying bodies would be like. The best way to handle the situation is to have a professional come and trap the mother raccoon as well as find and safely remove her young. This way mother and children can be relocated to a safe place together.
Lawrenceville Wildlife Tip #2:
Skunk trap off of crawl space - The nice thing about having a skunk living in the crawl space, if any, is that there is a definite entry hole somewhere around the base of your foundation. While some people might think this makes getting at a skunk impossible, the reality is almost the opposite. A skunk that has no other option but to come and go from one or two openings can be lured into a trap by employing the use of temporary fencing. Close off any holes until there is only one leading to and from the crawlspace. Then take your fencing and create a pathway from the hole to the set cage trap. If the animal wants to get out-or back in-it will have to go through the cage trap to do it. It's important that you make sure the trap is on level ground; if it wobbles, the skunk might shy away from it, making the animal less inclined to enter the trap. You can also use some appealing bait to get the animal to enter the trap. If there are cats around, don't use anything that has a meat base. You can use marshmallows and get the same results. In areas where there are no cats, you can use wet cat food.

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 Nextgen Pest Solutions, any time of day, at 404-334-2961, for a price quote for Lawrenceville wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Lawrenceville, GA.
