SQUIRREL TRAPPING

We charge a flat rate squirrel trapping fee per week.  There is NO setup fee, NO per animal fee, and NO need for an estimate or quote – simply CALL US! The squirrel trapping fee is all-inclusive: Five (5) trips out every single day to set the trap, check the trap and to relocate the squirrels trapped.  It is the law in the State of Georgia that the traps are checked every single day – No exceptions.  Every trapper is struggling to trap squirrels during the time of the year when there is a Mother raising their young.  Although we will trap only if that is what you wish, because of the greater success when coupled with exclusion, we highly “recommend” doing both the trapping & exclusion together.  Regardless if you chose for us to do an inspection or go straight to trapping – we will immediately provide you with a quote for the exclusion work.

SQUIRREL EXCLUSION SERVICES (Squirrel Proofing):

Since no two homes are alike, no two exclusion proposals are the same price.  Exclusion is the act of using animal-proof materials, devices, and methods to keep the animals OUT.  Once the animals are taken out, they leave behind odors, feces, and scents which may attract other animals.  If trapping alone  (without exclusion) it just clears the way for the next one to find their way in unless you block off its ability to “Get back IN”.  Some of the most common entry areas for animals are: ◊ Gable Vents  ◊ Soffit Junctions ◊ Dryer/Bathroom Vents ◊ Construction Gap (Gutter Line) ◊ Holes.

We only use the highest quality animal-proof materials and devices, therefore, we are proudly able to guarantee that no animal will get past the areas where we have performed the exclusion services.   With all of this said, there is no way to give a price for exclusion work over the phone.  While we are there it is necessary for us to determine how the animals are gaining access or entry into the building or property.  This insight makes us able to provide a proposal for the cost of the exclusion work.  IF the proposal is acceptable we will perform the exclusion work while the trapping is being performed which increases the overall success of the entire process. We are experts in getting the Squirrels that are in your attic – OUT?   We offer humane Squirrel trapping, Squirrel removal & Squirrel exclusion as well as Chipmunk Trapping, Chipmunk Removal & Chipmunk Control.

Frequently Asked Questions

((These are both frequently asked questions and common search engine queries))


Q: How to get rid of squirrels in my attic?
A: This process is pretty simple for us, we have been providing squirrel trapping services for 14 years. Albeit trapping is the just the first step. After you trap and get the psychopaths that think they are entitled to your home out and relocated far enough away to where they will not come back THEN you have to have your home sealed to prevent future one’s from coming in again. We provide critter-proofing of homes to keep squirrels, rats, mice, bats, etc out.

Q: Squirrel removal near me?
A:  If you typed this into google you do not always get the closest businesses (wildlife removal companies) to your current location. If a company uses “NEAR ME” on their website that is a keyword that could cause them to populate on your list although they are not the closest or near you. You do not have to type near me, Google is sophisticated enough to have an algorithm that detects your location if you have location services on when searching for squirrel trappers. If you do not then you will have to type your city name and not “near me”.

Q: How to keep away squirrels or “getting rid of squirrels”?
A:  Well that is a tough answer to just type in a few sentences. I can tell you what is the #1 attractor of squirrels…. bird feeders. Frankly, we live in Georgia and squirrels should be our State Mascot. To get squirrels out of your attic we would trap for one week. We use live cage traps and relocate them. Then we would provide an estimate to seal your home to prevent them from coming in again. It is methodical and pretty straight-forward. Not cheap, but highly effective when done properly.

Q: How much does it cost to get a squirrel out of your wall?

A:

Q: Who does Squirrel Pest Control?
A:  I think people assume squirrels are killed by pesticides or other means. When in all actuality squirrel control is done by cage trapping. It is illegal for a nuisance wildlife control operator to kill squirrels. We are required under our Nuisance Wildlife Licenses to “to cage trap and release unharmed in their natural habitat”. Trust me when I saw not every trapper obeys these laws but as long as we are required under our license we will continue to observe and respect the law. Plus, if you know what you are doing you do not need to kill them in order to control the situation.

Q: Squirrels in attic removal?
A:  Same as above. To get squirrels out of your attic we would trap for one week. We use live cage traps and relocate them. Then we would provide an estimate to seal your home to prevent them from coming in again. It is methodical and pretty straight-forward. Not cheap, but highly effective when done properly.

Q: Squirrel trap home depot -or- Baiting a squirrel trap –
A:  Ok, here is the truth… Yes, you can buy traps from home depot and bait them. The problem is that does not prevent future one’s from coming in. Plus, you run a risk of educating squirrels to avoid traps if you trap and fail. There is a lot more to it then just placing a cage trap and waiting.
