Animal Damage Repair and Animal-Proofing

Serving the Macon, Georgia Area

Serious animal damage to the corner of the wooden soffit panel of a house.

Here in the Macon area, we face special challenges in terms of wildlife control. Our neck of the woods contains cities, suburbs, and rural areas in close proximity to each other, which makes for many opportunities for wild animals to interact with humans.

Most animals are fairly nomadic. They wander around looking for food and habitat, driven by seasonal variations and population pressures. As animal populations in a given area increase, those populations tend to spread, driven both by competition for resources and a certain amount of territoriality. This is how animal populations have spread for countless years.

Humans and our densely-populated cities and suburbs, on the other hand, are a relatively recent development, as are our roads and highways that cut across land that once belonged to the animals alone. Given their choices, the animals would have preferred that we stay as far away from them as possible. But we came and settled down, anyway; and the animals had to adapt.

And adapt they did.

It didn't take the wild critters too long to realize that not everything about humans was bad. The squirrels and bats, for example, quickly learned that a nice, dry, comfy attic had a lot of advantages over a rotten, hollow old tree or a cold, damp cave. And although they don't quite understand why we do it, it didn't take the animals long to realize that we humans throw out an awful lot of delicious food, to which wild critters like raccoons, rats, and opossums are more than happy to help themselves.

In short, when life gave them lemons, the critters made lemonade. When humans came and plopped cities like Macon and Warner-Robin right smack in the middle of their territories, they made the best of it and adapted to our presence.

The Problem with Critters

We humans tend to be pretty decent sorts, and most of us wouldn't care very much if the animals helped themselves to our leftovers and wandered around in our yards. They were here first, after all; and as long as they're behaving in a polite manner and causing no problems, most folks would be more than happy to have them around.

The problem is that they do cause problems, and some of those problems can be pretty serious -- and sometimes even life-threatening. Most of these problems have to do with the things animals do when they get into our homes, businesses, and other buildings. For example:

In short, when animals get inside our homes and other buildings, they cause big problems.

Animal Damage Repair and Animal Exclusion in the Macon, Georgia Area

At Rid-A-Critter, we don't just do animal removal, and we're not "wildlife exterminators." In fact, most of the critters we handle are protected under both Federal and Georgia law and must be removed alive and humanely relocated -- not "exterminated."

What we do at Rid-A-Critter is safely remove the animals from your home, repair the damage they did, clean up the mess they made (including replacing contaminated insulation, if needed), and seal them out of your house so neither they nor their buddies can get back in again.

This last part, which we call "animal exclusion" or "animal-proofing," is where hiring a professional wildlife control company like Rid-A-Critter makes makes a big difference. Few contractor or handymen, and almost no do-it-yourselfers, have a sufficient appreciation for how resourceful our Georgia critters can be when it comes to getting into places where they don't belong. Through years of experience and the best training program in the business, our technicians have learned to think like the animals we work with, finding and sealing every last possible entry point to make sure that once we get them out of your home, they stay out.

In fact, we guarantee it.

In addition to the best-trained crew in the business, the Macon regional office of Rid-A-Critter also has all sorts of fancy equipment at our disposal, ranging from night-vision and thermal imaging cameras that let us literally see through walls and ceilings, to all sorts of bucket trucks, cherry pickers, high-powered vacuum cleaner trucks to remove filthy insulation, and insulation pumps to install fresh, clean insulation in its place.

In short, we have it all: the best crew, the best equipment, and the best guarantee in the business. So when you hire us to handle your animal damage problem, you get a complete job, done professionally, from start to finish, with no surprises and no hidden expenses. We even offer special financing, if you need it, so you don't have to settle for inferior work just to save a few dollars.

That's why we're the Macon area's premier animal control and animal damage repair company. We've solved animal problems at more homes, businesses, hospitals, and even airports throughout Macon and Northern Georgia than any other wildlife management company in the business. Even Georgia's own Ryan Klesko chose Rid-A-Critter to solve his animal problems.
