Animal Damage Repair and Animal-Proofing

Rid-A-Critter is a company that holds certain principles sacred, one of them being that wild animals have the right to be treated humanely and with respect. Animals get into our homes partly because their natural lands have been populated by humans. Given their own choices, most of them would have been just as happy if we'd stayed out of their forests and left them be.

The inevitable growth of human populations, however, has brought animals and humans closer together than nature meant for us to be; and sometimes wild critters cross lines into "our" dens: our homes and commercial buildings. When that happens, it's not a good thing for the animals or for us. They damage our homes and make a mess of things once they get in, along with causing health and fire hazards.

That's why the Augusta Regional Office of Rid-A-Critter is here. It is our business to remove wild animals from your home, seal them out, clean up their messes, and fix the damage that they caused; but to do so in a humane manner that avoids harming them. After they are removed, most animals are transported to areas that are appropriate to their needs, keeping family groups intact whenever possible.

Our emphasis on humane treatment of the animals we handle is a product of our genuinely liking animals and our profound respect for our remarkably diverse Georgia ecosystem. So please don't call us "animal exterminators." That's not what we do.

Animal Exclusion

Wildlife exclusion, or "animal-proofing," is a central part of every job we do at Rid-A-Critter. It would be pointless for us to remove animals from your home without sealing it up so that "new" animals don't get in as quickly as we remove the "old" ones. It's hard work that demands physical fitness, the willingness to work in high places and tight spaces, and the ability to see the world from the points of view of the animals that we're controlling. Wild animals are experts at finding small openings into homes that most folks wouldn't even notice. It's a survival skill for them. Our technicians have to become as good at finding those openings as the animals are.

Animal exclusion also requires a lot of specialized equipment. Back in the "old days" this meant long ladders, scaffolding, and lift trucks. Nowadays, it also includes high-tech gadgetry like infrared FLIR cameras and motion-activated night-vision cameras. We invest in whatever equipment we need to make the process more efficient and to maintain our competitive edge as Augusta's best animal-removal and exclusion company.

Poorly-done animal-proofing by a handyman in Augusta

Our people, the training they receive, and the resources we give them to do their jobs are among the reasons why you should call Rid-A-Critter rather than a handyman, roofer, or carpenter to remove animals from your home and seal them out. Our success rate at the work we do is extremely high. It has to be because we back every job we do by the best warranty in the wildlife control business. In short, if the animals come back, so will we.

In fact, many of the jobs we do were first attempted by other people who were unable to achieve success. Sometimes these were people hired by homeowners, like handymen and carpenters; and other times the homeowners tried to do their own animal control. Unfortunately, these attempts are rarely successful. Most wildlife exclusion jobs done by homeowners or other non-professionals fail. Very few people who are not full-time animal control specialists possess the skills, the equipment, the licenses, and the insurance to do the job effectively, legally, and safely.

In short, if you try to take care of an animal problem yourself, or if you hire a non-professional to do the job, most likely the attempt will fail. In the end, the odds are that you'll have just wasted your money.
