Georgia Raccoon Removal and Georgia Racccoon Trapping is very dangerous work. Georgia Raccoons have a higher possibility of carrying rabies and will be aggressive if cornered in the attic or inside your chimney. Most county and state animal control officials will respond to a Georgia raccoon inside you living areas of your home at no charge. When the Georgia raccoon takes up residence in your yard, crawlspace, attic, and chimney then you need a professional. Most Georgia wildlife removal and control professionals have had a rabies pre-exposure vaccine administered to them. A contaminated attic may need Attic Decontamination is a most after removing these animals. Look here for Center for Diseses Control  information on Georgia raccoon fecal matter removal.

The raccoon is a warm blooded mammal that is as big as a medium size dog. The adult raccoons weigh from about 10-30 pounds. The total body length, including the tail measures from 26 to 40 inches.  The raccoon is also known as the "masked bandit" beacuse of their unique facial coloring, the raccoon is also called a bandit because of his thiervy. Raccoons are a noncturnal animal. The paws of a raccoon can manuver and open almost anything offered. They have been known to be able to open garbage can lids, garage doors, and windows. They can be found living in caves, rocks, hollowed out trees, and in your attic!

The gestation period for raccoons is about 63 days with a litter averaging four to six young being born in April or May. About 60% of the female raccoons breed and produce litters when they are one year old while males typically do not breed until their second year. Mating season for the raccooon is at its peak in February and March. When about two months old, the young begin accompaying the mother as she hunts for food. Young raccoons remain with their mother throughout the year. Raccoons are typically active from about sunset to sunrise. Researches indicate that the average life span is about three to four years.

The intellegence of a raccoon is such that it can pick an avocado from a tree, aim, and throw it at a barking dog. They can also turn door knobs, without a lock. When they climb down a tree, he backs down, except for the last few steps, when it turns around. Swimming comes easily to the raccoon, who uses water for hunting;and, they have been known to drown dogs, who have pursued them into the water. Never approach a wild raccoon, when threatened, they can defend themselves against much larger animals. Sharp teeth, sharp claws, agility, and strength, all make the raccoon the survivor that he is. Though as many as four million are trapped or hunted each year in the United States, the raccoon population seems to be increasing.

People should not handle raccoons or their waste without protection and appropriate training.  Raccoons in the United States are known to carry infectious diseases that can be transmitted to humans and animals that have contact with raccoons or their waste. Raccoons expose humans to disease when handled or if there is exposure to bodily secretions or feces. Salvia, urine, feces and bites or scratched are the most commom routes of exposure.  80% of all North American raccoons carry Roundworm. This disease is caused by a parasite. The roundworm larvae cause problems as they travel through the person's muscles and various organs, including the liver, brain, lungs, and eyes. Raccoons are the primary host of this roundworm whicn is commonly found in their small intestines.  Raccoons shed millions of the microscopic roundwrom eggs in their feces. People may encounter the eggs through direct contact with raccoon droppings or by touching a contaminated area or object. If they don't wash their hands, they may later transfer the eggs to their mouths, Small children are particulary vulnerable because they tend to put their hands, and other objects into their mouths. Symptoms in people may include nausea, skin irrations, tiredness, liver enlargement, loss of coordination and muscle control, blindness, and coma. Other common diseases found in racoons are: Giardiasis, Leptospirosis, Salmomella, E Coli, and Rabies. Raccoons are one of the most common species to carry rabies.


Georgia Skunk Removal and Georgia Skunk control will always be unpredictable. The spray from a Georgia skunk can linger for weeks. unless you are very brave and or very confident, always have a Georgia skunk professional remove these friendly but smelly creatures. Dogs that get sprayed by the Georgia skunk usaully try to rub the smell from a Georgia skunk onto your carpet or couch.  


Georgia Opossum trapping and Georgia opossum removal is less dangerous than most other wildlife control, it is still not for everyone.  The opossum is part of the kangaroo family. usually the opossum resides in the lower areas of your dwelling. The Georgia opossum usually feeds on the dead caucus of other animals. Trapping Georgia opossums removal and exclusion is the best way to handle these creatures. Georgia Opossums usually are geound dwelling animals, if you hear noises in the attic and saw Georgia opossum in the back yard, it doesn't mean its in your attic, although it can be if the attic has easy access. These Georgia opossums are sometimes referred to Georgia possums


Georgia Snake Removal Georgia snakes get the worst publicity of all. They have been feared since biblical times. Although Georgia snakes are sometimes thought to stalk humans that's quite untrue. they're very east to predict. Food, heat and water is all they pursue. Take any of these things out of the equation and the snake leaves. Georgia Wildlife control professionals know how to remove the factors and then remove the Georgia snake problem.


Georgia Beaver Removal Georgia Beavers destroy man made habitat, but create much needed wetlands. The Georgia beaver will never stop tearing down trees and blocking waterways. Most humans cannot tolerate beavers when they devour the ornamental trees that humans plant . Tree replacement can be very expensive. some trees such as weeping cherry and weeping willows can be hundreds of dollars to replace and Georgia beavers can fall 5 trees per night. If you remove these trees the Georgia beaver will fall anither tree the next night olny to eat the tops first.


Georgia Bird Removal from Vents Georgia birds crap all over everything. from Georgia starlings nesting in vents to Georgia pigeons roosting at areas where humans do business, Georgia birds create many environmental hazards..After Having the Georgia Birds it is very important to have the area decontaminated.Bird Netting And bird Spikes in Georgia are good solutions to your Georgia bird control methods


Georgia Bat Removal Bats in Georgia are considered carriers of rabies and should be excluded by professionals.  There are to many variables in which to consider in Georgia bat control and exclusion. Every situation in Georgia is unique and should be evaluated and handled by a Georgia licensed wildlife animal control professional. Experience is the key in removing these Georgia Bats. From vents with a maternity colony to completely infested buildings, Georgia bat exclusion work is the most detailed work that can be done by the Georgia Bat certified professional. After removing Georgia bats in the attic one should consider Georgia attic decontamination for further protection against disease.


Georgia mole Removal    Moles are one of the common species of wildlife that we are called upon to control in North Houston. Moles can be found living in at lawns and landscapes throughout Georgia.  Georgia mole removal and mole trapping should be initiated as soon as the mole has been discovered living in these areas as Moles will tunnel through lawns damaging root systems and making it unstable to walk on the lawn. Expensive landscaping can be ruined quickly by this very small animal. Georgia is home to the Eastern Mole. Moles also take up residence under porches and patios Mole Removal Is Very Important to protect these areas. Moles create tunnels underground and "push up" the dirt that is excavated and deposit it on the surface of your lawn or landscape. Moles commonly eat earthworms and grubs.


Georgia Armadillo Removal    The nine-banded or long-nosed armadillo, Dasypus novemcinctus, is a common but non-native inhabitant of Georgia and the only armadillo present in the U.S. Because of its often destructive feeding and burrowing habits in both rural and urban settings, most people who have an armadillo around their home consider it a serious pest. There are actually about 20 species of armadillos in the world and for information on the biology and behavior of these interesting critters I highly recommend the Web site http://www.msu.edu/~nixonjos/armadillo.    My purpose here is to demonstrate a successful method of capturing and removing armadillos in an effective, safe and humane manner. While the nine-banded armadillo plays a useful ecological role by consuming large quantities of insects as food, when they take up residence in your yard, garden or worse, dig burrows under your buildings, they can be very destructive and an extreme nuisance. Georgia Armadillos are usually active at night, but do forage in the early morning and evening hours. In my yard in north Georgia, I have observed a family of young armadillos (see image below) foraging on an overcast day in mid afternoon. Full grown armadillos can dig large holes in the soil and in one night of foraging can ruin large patches of lawn or garden. I often encounter problems with armadillos the night after I spend time working in my garden. They dig around (and destroy) newly-planted flowers that I watered right after planting, particularly during dry weather. Suppressing the insect populations in the lawn will help reduce armadillo damage, but this effort has its own negative side effects if certain pesticides are used.    Armadillo reproduction is interesting and unique in that four identical young (quadruplets) from a single egg are produced in each litter. Armadillos are sexually mature at about one year of age and live reportedly for 12 to15 years. Little wonder than that they occur in high densities commonly in Georgia. Armadillos roam far and wide with a home range found to be over 12 acres in Georgia studies. Thus, combating armadillos around the home will be a never-ending chore. As one is removed another will likely find the open territory.

Methods of removal: Many methods have been suggested for exclusion or removal of armadillos from a yard or other area where they are causing problems. Constructing a strong exclusion fence buried in the ground a foot or so is both expensive and impractical. I have tried most of the trap methods and have found that most are ineffective, require uncommonly available or messy equipment (baits such as earthworms) or some strange behavior like getting up in the middle of the night to chase them with a net. There is an easier way if you use your head and some relatively cheap and readily available equipment. You don't need messy baits, you just exploit the behavior of the armadillo and let them catch themselves at your convenience. Here is how.

Setting the trap: The trap along with the fence sections work together to form a funnel. Armadillos have fantastic noses but apparently poor eyesight. They can be easily "channeled" toward and into a trap. The best location for trap placement is near the entrance of a burrow (see image above). However, this method works sometimes in the open if you set up a large funnel type area with the yard fence as described next    First place the fence sections around the burrow entrance such that the emerging armadillo will be forced to move in the direction of the channel formed by the fence. The fence sections should be placed about 12 inches apart in parallel to form the channel or corridor    I recommend placing the fencing to form the channel around the burrow without the trap for a few nights before adding the Haverhart trap to allow the armadillo to get accustomed to it, although this may not always be necessary and could be counter productive. Armadillo burrows often have multiple entrances and there may be more than one burrow in your yard. Therefore, an armadillo may not return to the same burrow or use the same entry hole every day.

Make sure that the fence sections are placed such that they overlap on the outside and not inside the formed channel. That is the fence should form sides that are smoothly overlapping in the direction from the burrow toward the trap . After a day or two with the fence in place, set the trap door and place the trap at the far end of the fence channel to make the funnel. Make sure that the fence sections adjoining the trap overlap the trap on the outside edges next to the door. Also, if the soil is uneven, it may be helpful to place a board, stone or soil under the trap so that the trap entrance is level such that the armadillo will have no problem entering. Baits (earthworms, fresh fruit) are not necessary using this trap method, but can be placed inside the trap as an added attraction. Set the trap before dusk and check it again in the morning. A modification of the two-sided funnel method placed near a burrow, is to use a wall, fence or other existing lengthy obstacle in the yard that will serve the same purpose in directing the movement of the roaming armadillos. This has the added advantage of covering more space and increasing the likelihood that an armadillo present will reach the trap. Place the trap tightly against the obstacle. The addition of some fencing as described above on the opposite side of the trap from the obstacle will also help increase capture rate. Captured armadillos can be released back into the wild some miles from the capture site or disposed of humanely. Depending upon the location and conditions of the yard with respect to food availability and that of the surrounding habitat, after some time a new armadillo is likely to move into your territory. So this is a never ending battle. Good Luck!

 

Every two years, the Wildlife Resources Division (WRD) invites all hunters and other interested persons to attend public meetings and provide input on the development of changes to current hunting regulations.

Paramount to this process is the understanding that the Georgia General Assembly passes laws and the Board of Natural Resources passes regulations.  Laws take precedence over regulations, and the Board can promulgate regulations only specific to the authority the General Assembly grants it. The Wildlife Resources Division (WRD) does not have an active role in introducing or voting on proposed law changes.  Those rights are reserved for Georgia's elected General Assembly members.  WRD's role is to serve as a source of information to assist lawmakers in making informed decisions relative to related issues and to make regulatory recommendations to the Board for their consideration.

The purpose of hunting regulations are to manage Georgia's game birds and game animals according to sound principles of wildlife management and to meet public objectives for use of these renewable natural resources.

The development of hunting regulations follows this general timeline:

  • January - A series of public meetings are held across the state to obtain public input prior to the formulation of hunting regulation proposals.  Public input may also be submitted electronically, in writing, or by telephone.
  • February - Hunting regulation proposals are received from WRD's biologist and other field staff.
  • March - Proposals are completed and presented to the Board of Natural Resources for input, review and tentative approval.
  • April - Public notice (30-day) of the proposed regulation package. WRD holds three (3) public hearings on the proposed regulation package to receive public comment.  Public comment on the proposals also may be submitted electronically, in writing, or by telephone.
  • May - Formal action on proposed regulations by the Board of Natural Resources.
  • June - Development of the annual Hunting Seasons and Regulations booklet.
  • July - Complete development and publication of the annual Hunting Seasons and Regulations booklet.
  • August - Hunting Seasons and Regulations booklet is made available on the website, at DNR offices, and at other retail outlets.
