WILDLIFE REMOVAL: COLUMBIA SC
Our Columbia wildlife removal services start with a thorough inspection of your home.
We look for intrusion areas, damage, or weaknesses in the infrastructure, and all of the telltale signs of invasive wildlife, be it rats, racoons, squirrels, etc.
After we have everything mapped out, we can discuss what will be required to remove these critters—dead or alive—and seal up your home so they don’t re-enter it.
We’ll also discuss further repair and decontamination.
Once everything is in place, we’ll get to work on trapping, removing, and excluding any of the wildlife that are taking up residence in your home.
We also offer minor tree trimming so larger critters like squirrels, raccoons, and opossums don’t have these means of getting into your home.

Yes, we pride ourselves on the ethical removal of animals. Once they’ve been rounded up, we safely relocate them.
Homeowners insurance policies may cover damage to your home from wildlife, but it is unlikely to extend to things like your personal property. For instance, your homeowner’s insurance policy may cover Columbia wildlife removal if raccoons caused damage to your garage or chewed up your wiring, but it most likely won’t cover any damage these critters have caused to any of the personal possessions in the garage.
Scratch marks and droppings near woodpiles and at the bases of trees are typical signs of raccoon activity. Having your trash and garbage cans spread across your yard when you wake up is another common indicator.
Besides the obvious signs of seeing a lot of bats flying around your home or seeing dead bats, it’s typical to smell ammonia (bat droppings have this scent), as well as other unexplained odors.
Look for stained holes as well—bats get in and out of your home in the same places, which over time become holes stained with black resin. This is one of the big things we look for in our Columbia wildlife removal services to diagnose the issue.
Look for squirrel droppings, chewed or damaged entry points, strange noises, and damage to your duct work, insulation, siding, and roofing.
Rodent droppings, gnaw marks, nests, and runways (distinctive tracks that can be seen easily with a flashlight or sometimes a blacklight).
In Columbia, wildlife removal companies are typically called because of torn shingles, ripped soffit, and holes in the siding of houses, which are common signs of an opossum infestation. They also typically damage the eaves or gutters as they search around for a den.
What are the signs of a snake infestation?
These are more difficult to detect, but look for snake droppings (usually small, whitish gray matter) and nests (holes in the dirt or other soft materials).
Snakes sometimes give off a certain odor—usually acrid or musky.
