Squirrel Removal in the Macon, Georgia Area

There are many species of squirrels. In fact, they have their own taxonomic family, Sciuridae, which includes all squirrels. We provide humane removal and relocation of any squirrels that gets into your home or building.

Only two squirrels are commonly encountered as nuisance animals in buildings in the Macon, Georgia are: the Eastern gray squirrel (which we'll talk about on this page), and the flying squirrel.

Two additional species, the red squirrel and the fox squirrel, are much less common but are encountered occasionally; and once in a very great while, chipmunks (who are also squirrels) may get into a house, usually in the basement or crawl space.

Gray squirrels are not always gray. There's a lot of color variation. A lot of them are reddish-brown, some are gray and brown, and we've even come across jet black or pure white squirrels. The official name is still gray squirrel, however.

In nature, gray squirrels usually live in hollow trees, only coming to the ground to find nuts, bury them, and retrieve them after they've been buried. This is part of the squirrel's job in nature: They plant a lot of trees.

Squirrels as Pests

Technically, squirrels are not pests. They're nuisance animals; and unlike rats and mice, they have to be humanely trapped and relocated, without using poisons. There's no such thing as a "squirrel exterminator".

Nonetheless, squirrels do cause damage and health risks when they get into attics and other parts of homes. They tear up the insulation, gnaw on the timbers and whatever has been been stored up there, damage the ductwork, and poop and pee all over the place. Even worse, they gnaw on wires and can start a fire. Thousands of homes are lost to fire this way every year.

Aside from making a mess of the place, squirrels create health hazards from their urine, droppings, and shed parasites. They also cause odor problems, especially if you have air-conditioning or heating equipment in the attic.

Long story short, when squirrels get into your home, they must be removed.

We have top-secret, newfangled, stealth, night-vision cameras to help solve difficult squirrel problems.

When squirrels get into your home, they need to be removed. Not only that, but the damage they caused needs to be fixed, the mess they created needs to be cleaned up, and all the ways that squirrels can get back in need to be found and sealed. Your home needs to be made animal-proof to keep squirrels and other nuisance wildlife out of the attic. This is called squirrel exclusion, and it's absolutely necessary for long-term squirrel control.

We also clean up after the squirrels after we remove and relocate them. This may include removing their droppings and nests, disinfecting and sanitizing the attic, neutralizing odors, and optionally, replacing contaminated insulation. We'll leave your home clean, squirrel-free, and squirrel-proof. We guarantee it.

If you have a problem with squirrels, please call us for a professional inspection and squirrel-removal consultation.

A loose section of vinyl soffit panel at a roof junction point allowed gray squirrels into the attic of a house in Forsyth, Georgia. Squirrel removal at this house (and most houses) will begin by making the roof animal-proof to keep squirrels and other wildlife out of the attic. Then we'll set traps to humanely catch, remove, and relocate the existing squirrels from the attic.

Gray squirrels gnawed right through the corner of a stucco wall, right under the roof trim, to get into a house in Macon, Georgia.

Gray squirrels gnawed a hole through the stucco wall in a house in Americus, Georgia. The gnawed it from the inside. Maybe they just wanted a better view of the outside world. In any case, one of our Macon squirrel-removal crews is sealing the hole as part of animal-proofing the house to keep squirrels and other wildlife out of the attic.

A gap of about three inches in a section of the roof rake will have to be covered with metal as part of a Macon, Georgia gray squirrel-removal job. Trapping and relocating squirrels from the attic makes no sense unless you also animal-proof the house to prevent future problems with squirrels or other wildlife and pests.

Will be a cold and windy day today. Guys will be out working hard to seal homes, preventing all kinds of pest animals from getting in. Animals like rats, mice, squirrels, raccoons and opossums want out of the cold too. Pest animals beware.

A sagging section of soffit panel created a gap between itself and the adjacent section, which observant squirrels used to get into the attic of a house in Perry, Georgia.

Gray squirrels gnawed at the plastic cover of a water valve in the attic of a house in Valdosta, Georgia. Squirrel-removal specialists from our Macon office are trapping and relocating the squirrels, animal-proofing the house to exclude wildlife, and replacing the insulation.

One of the first steps we took at a Macon, Georgia squirrel-removal job was to advise the customer to move a bird feeder farther away from the house. Bird feeders attract squirrels and other rodents and wildlife, and should be placed as far from the house as possible.

Droppings, urine, and nesting materials were evidence of gray squirrels in the attic of a house in Perry, Georgia.

Later on today animal-removal specialists from our Macon office will be finishing up a Valdosta, Georgia squirrel-removal and wildlife-exclusion job. The animal-proofing is finished and we think all the squirrels have been removed. The last step will be replacing the contaminated insulation to eliminate the squirrel odors from the house.

The first item on our Macon wildlife control office this morning will be squirrel-proofing a house in Americus, Georgia. Squirrel removal has to be done in conjunction with animal-proofing to permanently keep squirrels and other nuisance animals out of a house. Otherwise it becomes a revolving door, with new animals replacing the ones that are removed and relocated.

A Cordele, Georgia squirrel-removal crew is just arriving to animal-proof a house to keep squirrels and other wildlife out of the attic. Animal-proofing is the most important part of any nuisance animal removal job. It doesn't make sense to remove the animals from the attic if they can get right back in the moment you turn your back.
