David, and Georgia Wildlife Services, Inc bring to your problem a mixed bag of tricks uniquely suited for control of your wildlife problems. Raised on a small cattle farm, David was exposed early on to the care and control of animals and the wildlife that comes along with farming and agriculture. Later he would take part in the forestry practices of his family's timberland holdings so an intimate knowledge of the wildlife and ecosystems of the southeast was his early schoolroom.
After leaving the Army, David, spent a few years as commercial fisherman on the rivers of Alabama and would later enter the construction field as a home builder and framing subcontractor. All the while, David, continued in the outdoors at one point raising and training competition level treeing walker coon hounds. This mixed bag stood him in good stead when a large corporation hired him to manage and train wildlife technicians for their operations across the southeast.
After several years with the corporation, David, became severely dissatisfied with the corporate mentality and lack of basic customer service and left to form a company devoted first and foremost to the concept of solving customer problems. As one colleague put it, "treat your customers like you would your mama" has become our mantra.
Many of the services we offer include the following:
* Basic trapping and removal
* Ongoing trapping and removal for population control
* Relocation and rescue services for injured or orphaned wildlife
* Exclusion or structural seals to deny entry by wildlife into structures or habitations
* Carpentry and repairs to structures, roofs and chimneys to repair damage caused by animals and weather
* Removal of bird and bat guano (feces) and soiled and damaged materials, to include possibly infectious materials such as raccoon latrines and feces
* Removal and odor control of dead, dying and diseased animals to include road hit animals and family pets
* Installations or barriers, fencing, bird spikes, shock tapes and others items to discourage or repel continued use by wildlife
* Full site and structural inspections with letters and reports of inspection
Many times the complex situations presenting by wildlife will require various combinations of the above services. Such as first trapping the nuisance wildlife prior to doing a structural seal to be followed by removal of soiled insulation. Due to this we can not provide pricing in this limited space. So in an effort to assist in your determination to hire a professional we will outline the process we go through.
For many issues we can determine over the phone the basic services you will require and can give a quote at that time. For instance our standard trapping for many species can be done on a time frame basis and for this we charge a flat rate based on time on job not per animal caught. No open ended contracts or repeat fees based on an operators failure to capture animals.
Georgia Wildlife Services, Inc focuses solely upon the individual animals causing your problem and targets them for removal. You will not be charged for catching non problem animals, nor will we waste your time trying to catch these non targets in an effort to raise fees. This is our basic flat rate process.
All repairs and structural seals along with many clean outs (guano, feces, repairs, etc.) will need to be assessed prior to quoting a fee and for a small fee we will fully and thoroughly inspect the site in order to give you the best possible pricing, all inspection fees will apply to the costs of the total job. In the event the job may require basic service plus additional services there will not be an additional inspection fee as the inspection is included in the cost of basic service fee.
Other species such as predators, beaver, otter may require continuing services to obtain long term control, this can only be determined by an on site inspection. Again we charge only a small fee for this inspection and will apply it to any additional services.
One special note for you to consider when looking for a professional. Many species of wildlife pose serious threats to human health and must be dealt with in specific manners in order to safeguard your health. The most notable that comes to mind are bats. Not only are bats a protected species under both federal and state regulations but they are also one of the main rabies vector species as well as supporting the growth of fungal spores that cause the lung disease histoplasmosis.
There is a specific approved process delineated in Georgia regulations for the removal and control of bats in structures. Failure to abide by this process or the improper use of these techniques can and will exacerbate your problem exposing you to the very real consequence of direct exposure and contact with these animals and the risks they pose.
Any professional you hire should be fully licensed by the state of Georgia, should carry general liability insurance as well as commercial vehicle and if required workman's compensation insurance as well. If the conditions of the job require it they should also hold licenses from the Georgia Dept of Agriculture (any use of chemicals to include both pesticides and repellents), or any required special permits needed for control of federally or state protected wildlife.
Georgia Wildlife Services, Inc meets or exceeds all of these requirements. Please let us meet and exceed your expectations.
