What Can I do About the Wildlife In, Under, or Around My House?

Animal Control does not typically remove wild animals from homes or businesses. To help prevent wildlife from being attracted to your house or yard, do not leave food of any kind outside. If you feed cats/dogs outside, remove uneaten food after 30 minutes. Placing screens over chimneys, and attic vents help reduce the risks associated with bat colonies, squirrels and other wildlife entering the home through those openings. Do not let yard waste/debris stay piled up in your yard; it could attract rodents which will attract snakes. The removal of nuisance wildlife should only be done by a licensed trapper or the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GA-DNR). Contact GA-DNR at 912-264-7237.
