If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Smyrna 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 Smyrna, and I recommend the following:
Cell Phone: 770-627-0550
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Cobb County Animal Services: (770) 499-4136
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 Cobb 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 Smyrna wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Smyrna 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.
Smyrna 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 Smyrna 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 Smyrna 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 Smyrna 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 Smyrna 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 Smyrna pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Smyrna 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 Smyrna trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Smyrna 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 Smyrna. 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 Smyrna 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 Smyrna. And remember, we are a private business, not Cobb County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (770) 499-4136.
Cobb County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Smyrna Wildlife Tip #1:How to Get Rid of Snakes Without Killing Them
How you feel about living with a snake in the same house? Indeed, this is a terrible idea. But what if you live in a snake prone area and these horrible creatures try to find way inside again and again. Although not all of them are poisonous, they are simply intolerable due to their scary appearance and dangerous activities. If you are facing trouble due to snakes on your property, it is good to use some effective snake repellent solutions to get rid of them naturally.
Snakes are cold-blooded reptiles and they often love to live in warm conditions. So if you have placed wood piles in your yard or have lots of shrubs, it may soon become their living space. The best idea is to clean your premises so that snakes do not find any shelter in your premises. Also, use some trusted repellents that are easily available at local stores or can be created at home to force them to move out of your property.
Studies reveal that snakes do not like natural oils so they can be used as best repellents to get rid of them proper your space. Some of the best choices are cinnamon oil and olive oil as they cause a disturbance in the normal metabolism activity of snakes. These oils work like a poison and may slowly kill snakes as well. That is why natural oils are considered as best repellents for snakes; they often avoid visiting the space where natural oil is sprinkled.
Marigolds are also considered as string repellents for snakes and many other pests as well. The strong smell of these plants appears irritating to the naval system of snakes and the milky sap coming out of its stems make snake's skin itchy. Also, it can blur their vision when comes in direct contact with their eyes. It is the best idea to plant a marigold plant in your yard to get rid of snakes permanently.
Andrographis Paniculata Plant:
Same as Marigold, here is another herbaceous plant that is commonly found in Asian regions. It has bitter roots and leaves that cause pain and swelling to snakes skin whenever it comes in contact. This strong repellent can keep snakes far away from your yard.
Here is another effective tool to get rid of snakes. You might be aware of the fact that snakes have sensitive skin and they cannot tolerate predator urine over it. So if you sprinkle mongoose, coyote or bobcat urine in the area, it can keep snakes away from your property. However, the biggest challenge is to collect this urine.
In order to get rid of snake attacks permanently, you can install fencing around your house. Note that, simple fencing cannot keep snakes out of your property; you may need to take help from professionals to choose right fencing arrangement. The solid fences are generally made of wood or vinyl whereas the temporary fences are designed using mesh or plastic fabric.
Smyrna 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 Smyrna wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Smyrna, GA.
