Common Attic, Wall, and Basement Critters

Before tackling the problem, it’s essential to identify the critters that have taken up residence in your home. Here are some common critters in Georgia:

Raccoons and Baby Raccoons: These omnivores can be destructive and carry diseases like rabies.

Rats: Rats are known carriers of diseases, and they can gnaw on wires and insulation.

Bats: Bats may roost in attics and can pose health risks.

Squirrels and Flying Squirrels: These agile rodents often enter attics, chew on wires, and cause damage.

Opossums: Opossums may seek shelter under your house, shed, or garage.

Skunks: Skunks can dig under porches and decks and are known for their foul-smelling spray.

Removal, Trapping, & Eviction Techniques

Live Traps: Utilize exit tunnels to allow free exit of animals. Or live traps baited with critter-appropriate food to capture the animals. Once trapped, release them far from your property in suitable habitats. For baby raccoons, it’s advisable to consult a wildlife specialist who can safely remove and care for them.

Professional Assistance: When dealing with larger or potentially aggressive critters, like raccoons or skunks, it’s safer to hire a professional wildlife removal service. They have the expertise and equipment to handle these situations safely.

Exclusion Methods: Seal off entry points to prevent critters from returning. Check for gaps, cracks, and openings in the attic, walls, and basement and make necessary repairs.

Control Measures

Once you’ve successfully removed the critters, it’s crucial to implement control measures to prevent future infestations:

Regular Maintenance: Keep your property well-maintained to reduce hiding spots and food sources for critters.

Secure Trash: Use critter-proof trash cans and secure lids to prevent them from rummaging through your garbage.

Garden Maintenance: Trim branches and shrubs away from your home to eliminate potential pathways for critters.

Sealing Entry Points: Regularly inspect your home for new openings and seal them promptly.

Protecting Your Georgia Home in the Future

Install Screens and Vents: Use critter-proof screens and vents to cover openings, ensuring critters cannot enter.

Regular Inspections: Periodically inspect your property for signs of critter activity, like chewed wires or droppings.

Educate Yourself: Familiarize yourself with the critters common in your area and their habits to take proactive measures against them.

Consider Repellents: Install motion-activated lights or ultrasonic devices to discourage critters from approaching your home.

I had a bat problem in my attic gable vent. The crew listened to my needs, recommended a fix and installed it. They were an excellent choice for my problem. I would call them again!

Jonathan and his crew were very professional and took care of our huge critter problem. He did several follow-up visits to make sure the traps were working and was always available to answer my questions. They were a pleasure to work with and worth every dollar.

I had a bad squirrel problem in my attic, so I called Attic Kings. They came out to do an inspection and found out how the pests were getting in. They installed one of their tunnels and within days, they were gone. It has been over a year since Attic Kings have gotten rid of my squirrel problem and the animals haven’t been back since.
