Why should I choose Urban Wildlife Control over other leading Atlanta area competitors?

Far too many companies are “getting their feet wet” in the animal removal business. These companies, both big and small, are using rookies to attempt to provide wildlife control at the customer’s expense.

Since 2003 Urban Wildlife Control has performed more than 1,000 animal removal jobs each year with an extremely high success rate, giving us the experience needed to do this difficult work. Our hands-on approach to Atlanta wildlife removal allows us to solve animal problems where other companies have failed.

Our employees are dedicated to providing you with professional customer service, safety and satisfaction. We offer competitive rates for effective animal removal or pest control and provide a written guarantee on all complete repairs and exclusions.

Is Urban Wildlife Control Licensed and Insured?

We carry a general liability policy to protect our clients and their homes, as well as worker’s compensation to protect our employees (proof of coverage may be obtained from our office). You should ALWAYS verify coverage before allowing anyone to work on your home.

We have a business license and nuisance wildlife control permit (#22523) issued by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and home pest control license (#96127) issued by the Georgia Department of Agriculture.

Does Urban Wildlife Control Use Sub-Contractors?

NO. In fact, everyone in our company is a full-time employee of the company. Our employees MUST be drug-free and pass a background check to be employed with us.

We go through continuous training to stay current on all new techniques and equipment in our industry. When you hire our experts in rodent removal in Atlanta, you can rest assured you have hired the best in the state.

What is the difference between a nuisance wildlife controller and a pest control operator?

Pest control operators (PCO), or exterminators, are individuals licensed to deal with bug and termite problems. Nuisance wildlife control operators (NWCO), or animal controllers, are individuals licensed to control wildlife.

PCOs are licensed by the Georgia Department of Food and Agriculture. NWCOs are licensed by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

What types of pests can possibly be damaging my home?

The most common pests found in Atlanta homes are the following: rats (year-round), squirrels (fall through spring), raccoons (winter through spring), opossum (winter through spring), snakes (typically hibernate in the winter), bats (year-round, migrate or hibernate in the winter), birds (spring) bees (spring through fall).

What form of payment does Urban Wildlife Control accept?

We accept Visa, Master Card, Discover, American Express, PayPal, check and cash. Ask about our financing options!

Does your Atlanta pest control service company use poison?

Urban Wildlife Control practices humane trapping and wildlife removal techniques inside homes without the use of poison. If poison is used to control an animal problem, there are risks of the animal dying inside your home or office. This practice could cause an odor problem. Secondary poisoning of predators, such as cats, is also a concern. Poison does have a place in integrated pest management, just not inside your home.

Does rat poison mummify rats or make them thirsty so they go outside to die?

There are pest control companies that will tell you these false statements. The truth is, there is NO such rodenticide. If you allow the use of rodent baits inside your home, you can be assured that they will die in areas where they normally frequent: their nesting site, your attic or walls, their food source, your bird feeder, or somewhere in between. If you chose poisoning over trapping and exclusion because of cost, you may end up paying an Atlanta pest control services specialist to remove a dead rat from your home, which is usually done by cutting walls open.

What types of diseases do wild animals carry, and are they harmful to humans?

Most wild animals do carry harmful diseases, such as rabies, toxoplasmosis, histoplasmosis, salmonella (food poisoning), rat-bite fever, raccoon roundworm and hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, just to name a few.

Does Urban Wildlife Control provide termite, ant and spider extermination?

Urban Wildlife Control does provide pest control and extermination. We are certified by the Georgia Department of Agriculture for home pest control applications. However, we do not provide termite treatments.

Will Urban Wildlife Control assist me with dog or cat issues?

We focus on Atlanta wildlife removal. If your neighbor will not keep his or her dog on a leash, the animal barks at night, or if you are looking to adopt a dog or cat, please contact companies that provide animal control in Atlanta.

I found a baby animal. Will Urban Wildlife Control rehab the animal?

Urban Wildlife Control employees are NOT state-licensed rehabbers. If you have found young wildlife, please read our information about lost or orphaned baby animals.

Are there any animals with which Urban Wildlife Control will not deal?

Due to state regulations, we cannot handle problems related to endangered species, game animals (bear, deer and turkeys) or alligators (longer than three inches). If you have a problem with any of these animals, contact the Georgia Department of Natural Resources for assistance.
