We a complete job, from start to finish. We remove wildlife humanely and effectively, using the proper traps, tools, and techniques for each unique animal and situation.
When we encounter animals inside a house, we inspect every part of the house, from ground level to every part of the roof, to identify all the areas of entry, and all vulnerable
areas, and we perform professional repairs, with guarantee, to seal entry holes shut. We inspect inside the attic to find any damage or biohazard, and provide full cleaning services. We offer attic decontamination, poison-free and permanent rodent control,
bat colony exclusion, bird prevention, snake removal, dead animal removal and odor control, and more.
It's beautiful experiencing all four seasons here in Richmond. However, it's not
so beautiful when the seasonal changes cause wildlife to seek shelter in your home.

with dog and cat issues, and select issues such as an animal on the street, etc. Below is the TIP OF THE MONTH regarding local Richmond County animal services related matters:
Is it legal for me to trap a bat?
Before you do anything to the bats, you should be aware of the local law towards the bats.
In some places, the roosts and the bats species are protected legally by domestic and also
international legislations. You are going to be committing the crime when you deliberately
kill, injure or capture the bat, or if you recklessly or intentionally disturb the bats in
the roosts or if you disturb a group of the bats. You will be charged when you destroy the
roosting place of the bats even when they are not in the root at that time, or if you exchange,
sell or advertise the bat when it is alive or dead or any of its parts.
It is important to have the license to do anything that will involve the illegal activities that
are related to the bats together with their roots sites. This can be issued depending on the
specific purpose and by specific licensing authority in every area. These are the license came
to be called derogation license and they are given under the habit regulations. It is considered
to be an offense when you fail to comply with the terms and the condition that are given within the
derogation license. If you do anything that will affect the bats like trapping or disturbing the bats
without having the license, you will be breaking the law.
You have to be careful about what the law says if you are a householder or a property owner who has
the bat roost in his property. You need to find out what you have to do when there is a need to do a
work that will disturb the roost. The foresters, arboriculturalist and woodland owners should also
learn about the law. Other people are roofers, builders, demolition companies, property developers,
architects and pest control personnel.
Some people may use boxes or cage traps on the bat exists points so that they may gather them when they
came out. Some may even think about catching the bats using the net where they go out. However, even after
catching them, you should ask yourself what you will do with them since it is illegal to kill bats since they
are the species that are protected by the law. When you decide to release them, they are going to come back
where you got them in the first place. You can only remove them and close the entry points so that they do not
come back. Some may try to use commercial or homemade traps. However, this will require many traps since a
colony can be of some numbers and the problems will rise on what to do with them afterwards. Some people may
use the trapping method but this is inefficient since few will be trapped and these trapped may die of starvation
and this is illegal. Exclusion is the best when it comes to chase away the bats.
