What are wildlife?

There are many different kinds of wildlife pests, but some of the most common are opossums, raccoons, squirrels, rats, and mice.

  • Opossums grow to about the size of a house cat. They are gray and white marsupials with hairless tails, pointed faces, and long whiskers. 
  • Raccoons are gray and black mammals with a ringed tail, black "mask" markings, and round bodies. 
  • Squirrels are grayish-brown rodents with bushy tails.
  • Rats are rodents with long tails, a pointed snout, and long whiskers.
  • Mice are smaller than rats, have ears that are large for their bodies, and vary in color depending on the species.

A pest control plan for your Newnan home is the most reliable way to protect your property from our local wildlife. 

Are wildlife dangerous?

Wildlife pests are dangerous. They can carry many different diseases and parasites. Not only that, but some of these pests can become aggressive when threatened and will attack.

Some of the diseases spread by wildlife include hantavirus, rabies, tularemia, leptospirosis, salmonellosis, E. coli, and giardiasis. They can also lead to populations of fleas, ticks, and other parasites living on your property.

On top of the medical concerns of wildlife, they often cause cosmetic and potentially structural damage to properties.

Why do I have a wildlife problem?

It can be easy to forget that areas we live in were home to wildlife first, especially in suburban areas. Although it might not seem like it, these animals still live close by and use residential properties to their advantage as people provide many scavenging opportunities. Some of these opportunities include garbage cans, gardens, and bird feeders.

Where will I find wildlife?

You can find the wildlife pests we have mentioned so far in various places around your home and property, including under sheds and decks and in crawl spaces, attics, and basements. You may also find rodents like mice and rats in kitchens where there is food debris for them to scavenge.

How do I get rid of wildlife?

At Shane's Pest Solutions, we provide reliable pest solutions in Newnan for the common home-infesting pests, including wildlife. Our Newnan wildlife solutions include a detailed inspection looking for signs of pest activity, whole-house exclusions, and a one-year guarantee. You can hear more about how we can assist with rodents and wildlife by contacting us at Shane's Pest Solutions.

How can I prevent wildlife in the future?

While our services can help remove and keep out wildlife, you should also remove food sources, including bird feeders, fallen fruit, and accessible gardens, as well as garbage cans that they can easily knock over.

Another way to help keep wildlife out is to remove entry points by installing chimney caps and vent covers, sealing cracks and holes in the foundation, and repairing damaged screens.

You can also deter these pests from your property by installing fencing around your property and motion sensor lights.

Contact Shane's Pest Solutions for more tips on keeping wildlife away or removing them once they've invaded.
