Animal Damage Repair and Animal-Proofing in the Athens, Georgia Area

Serious animal damage to the corner of the wooden soffit panel of a house that the animal removal company will repair.

Here in Georgia, we value and respect our natural environment, and that includes all the wild critters that are part of it. But most of us are happier when the wildlife stay outside our homes.

It's nothing personal, mind you. We love our wildlife. But wild animals tend to make a mess of things when they move inside our homes and buildings. They also cause a lot of damage by their gnawing, nesting, and chewing. They tear up insulation, gnaw through electrical wiring to create fire hazards, and use our attics as their toilets. This sort of behavior may be perfectly acceptable to rats, mice, raccoons, and other wild critters, but we human folk consider it downright rude.

That's why Rid-A-Critter is here. We can help keep wild critters out of your home in a way that respects both animals and people. We're Georgia's leader in humane, professional wildlife removal, exclusion, and damage repair. The Athens Regional Office serves all of Athens-Clarke County, Georgia, including Athens, Greensboro, Good Hope, Commerce, Watkinsville, and everywhere else in the Greater Athens area.

At Rid-A-Critter, we've found that the best way to prevent animal damage is by making your home hard for animals to get into. In the wildlife management business, we call this "animal exclusion" or "wildlife exclusion," but most folks just call it "animal-proofing." It's not an easy job because wild critters are pretty good at finding all the little nooks, crannies, cracks, and holes that they need to get inside our homes, and we have to do the same. This requires a lot of hard, physical work, as well as a keen knowledge of animal behavior. We have to "think like the animals," as it were.

We also have a lot of fancy and expensive equipment ranging from long ladders, to cherry pickers, to high-tech infrared cameras and motion detectors -- not the kinds of things most homeowners or handymen have laying around. We also hire and train the best men and women we can find for the job, give them everything they need to do it well, and follow up on every single job with a Quality Assurance inspection and survey.

That's why year after year, Rid-A-Critter animal-proofs more homes in Georgia than any other wildlife management company in the South. We have the personnel, the tools, and the know-how to tackle any animal-removal and exclusion job. In fact, we guarantee it.

Why Choose a Professional Wildlife Control Company

Sloppy, carelessly-done animal exclusion work using roof flashing on the roof of a home in Georgia

Poorly-done animal-proofing attempt by a handyman

If you have an animal problem in your home, you have a lot of options. You don't have to call an animal control company. There are a lot of handymen, roofers, and carpenters who will gladly offer their services. You could also try doing the job yourself. If what you have is a simple problem, you might even be successful and save yourself some money in the process.

The problem is that most of the time, animal-proofing attempts by homeowners, handymen, and other people who are not wildlife exclusion experts are not successful. It's simply not as easy as it seems. Also, very few people who are not full-time animal control specialists possess the skills, the equipment, the licenses, and the insurance to do the job effectively, legally, and safely. If the company that you hire is not licensed by the Georgia DNR, then you're entrusting your home to lawbreakers.

Nonetheless, many of the animal control and damage repair jobs we sign up were previously attempted by handymen or other unlicensed people, and others were attempted by homeowners. Needless to say, the work wasn't done very well in those cases, or else we wouldn't have been called in the first place. These poorly-done animal exclusion attempts often have our technicians in the field shaking their heads, wondering how anyone could have thought such flimsy repairs could deter an animal that was truly determined to get inside a home.

Long story short, if you try to take care of an animal problem yourself, or if you hire someone who's not an animal control professional to do it, most likely you'll just be wasting your time and money. In the end, you're almost certainly going to have to call a professional to get the job done right.

Comprehensive Animal Removal and Exclusion

Rid-A-Critter provides a comprehensive, start-to-finish approach to animal removal and exclusion. A "typical" animal removal job consists of:

We provide animal removal services for practically any nuisance animal common to the Athens, Georgia area including:

and many others.

Whatever animal problem you may have, Rid-A-Critter has the personnel and resources to help you solve it; so please give us a call for an inspection and consultation. We look forward to hearing from you.
