Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing McDonough, GA

McDonough Wildlife Animal Control

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

Xceptional Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 678-855-7309

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Henry County Animal Services: (770) 288-7387

Xceptional Wildlife Removal 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 Xceptional Wildlife Removal 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 678-855-7309 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 Henry 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

Xceptional Wildlife Removal is a full-service McDonough wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular McDonough pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Xceptional Wildlife Removal 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.

  McDonough 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 McDonough raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Xceptional Wildlife Removal. 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 McDonough 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 McDonough 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 McDonough 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 McDonough pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is McDonough 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 McDonough trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a McDonough 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. Xceptional Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Xceptional Wildlife Removal. 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. Xceptional Wildlife Removal also provides dead animal removal in McDonough. 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 McDonough 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 McDonough. And remember, we are a private business, not Henry County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (770) 288-7387. Henry County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

McDonough Wildlife Tip #1:
What should I do if I find a nest of snakes?

Well, that is a shocking event for most people. Especially for people who have never encountered a nest of snakes before.

First things first

Just deciding to remove a nest of snakes may prove dangerous for you andthose around you. You are therefore advised to take utmost care when you encounter a snake nest.

1. Identify the species of snake you that are in the nest.
2. Find out the reason they maybe in the nest. Is it because they want to stay warm or is it because it is mating season? Cold weather may make them docile as opposed to mating season when they are naturally aggressive.
3. Make a decision on whether you can relocate the snakes safely.

The next step

If you establish that the snakes are non-venomous you may move them. This however has to be done with a lot of care as agitating them may still guarantee you a bite.

You can use long hooked rods; these will enable you to fetch them out one by one, transferring them in cages specially designed to ensure they do not slither away. Once this has been done, you can then relocate them to a safe place. Ensure that it is over a mile away from your property.

You can also trap them by luring them with live bait into snake traps that ensure once it gets in, it will not get out. This may require many traps therefore be prepared.

If they are venomous snakes

The job is much more dangerous. While the process is pretty much the same, the venom issue is of great concern. Venomous snakes generally tend to be more aggressive than non-venomous snakes. They will attack at the slightest provocation. That is why we advise that you seek the services of professionals. They will most likely be better equipped and qualified to deal with the snakes. Also they will have a better idea of how and where to relocate the poisonous snakes in question.


Mating season is an especially dangerous time to poke at a nest of snakes as they tend to be more aggressive then (especially the males). Be careful when approaching. Once the snakes have been moved, destroy the nest by leveling the ground or removing the rocks they may have been nesting under. This will prevent them from nesting there once again in the future. Consider using sake repellents like mothballs to keep them away from your compound.

McDonough 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 Xceptional Wildlife Removal, any time of day, at 678-855-7309, for a price quote for McDonough wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in McDonough, GA.
