Wildlife is an everyday part of our lives in Metro Atlanta. When in its natural habitat, it’s often a pleasure to enjoy. However, due to the expansion of the suburbs, increasing human population, and connectivity of forests and streams, our abundant wildlife frequently finds its way into our homes. If you reside in Alpharetta or Milton, Georgia, you may have encountered issues with squirrels or other rodents.
When this happens, the most seemingly harmless animals in appearance pose a serious threat to safety, health, and property value. Whether in a residential or commercial structure, should you suspect you have wildlife in your attic, basement, or crawlspace, do not attempt to resolve the matter yourself. Contact the licensed professionals at North Fulton Pest Solutions for our expert wildlife removal services.

Wildlife Exclusion Services – Atlanta Wildlife Solutions
Wildlife exclusion is a process whereby any gaps or openings that are a quarter inch or wider are sealed to prevent entry. Gaps such as these are most often found along the roofline where there’s an original construction gap, near utility penetrations, and where concrete, brick and/or stone joins siding material. Our professional wildlife control experts seal these and other potential entry points with materials designed and manufactured to exacting specifications especially for North Fulton Pest Solutions.
Clean up is the final step in the process. Rodents such as squirrels and rats mark their territory with urine, feces, and body oils. These contaminants and their odors can persist for years, especially when absorbed into your insulation. Aside from the scent attraction, urine and feces from squirrels, rats, bats, raccoons, and opossums can be a serious health risk. Ask about our disinfectant, sanitizer, and virucide treatment options as well our contaminated insulation removal and new insulation installation services.
Wild animals in your home or business may also cause infestations of fleas, ticks, mites, or other parasitic pests. For total protection from parasites, we offer complete pest control services in Atlanta.
We Provide Atlanta Wildlife Services for the Following Animals:
Opossums do play dead; though they often break character without warning. These creatures infest attics and crawlspaces to rear young. In the process, they turn their surroundings into a filthy collection of feces and urine posing serious health risks to you and your family. Furthermore, they destroy insulation, duct work, and wiring causing costly property damage. Don’t be fooled, they will protect themselves if threatened.

These pictures reveal just a fraction of typical damages caused by animals once inside your attic. Wiring is an easy, and even tasty, target for squirrels and rats to chew upon. The threat of an electrical fire increases with every day that an active wildlife population resides in your home or business. Urine and fecal contamination is a serious health risk. Your insulation acts like a sponge absorbing as much urine and feces as it can. Eventually the insulation reaches its threshold, and the droppings and waste products contaminate the other materials and areas beyond the insulation. These contaminants become easily airborne and are readily circulated throughout your home, especially when your HVAC unit is in the attic. Ectoparasites are another serious threat associated with unwanted wildlife in your attic. These pests include fleas, ticks, mites, bedbugs, and many others attracted to and by the presence of animals. We can resolve these serious issues and return your home or office back to a healthy living or working environment.
When rats, raccoons, and/or opossums enter your crawlspace, the damage captured in these pictures is just the beginning. Nuisance animals leave urine and feces everywhere, which can become airborne and circulated throughout your home or business. They often tear holes into ductwork for heat or air and sometimes wander throughout your duct system. The damage can be severe and the risks to health and safety immeasurable.
Roofline Construction Gap
Exclusion is a common term used in our industry to describe the process of sealing all entry or potential entry points of squirrels, rats, bats, raccoons, opossums and many other forms of wildlife. Above are a couple of photos of the most common problem areas with Georgia homes. This is an original construction or “builder’s” gap which can be found by lifting the shingles at the edge of your roofline. This gap varies from home to home, but it is typically wide enough for smaller rodents to gain access to your attic with little or no effort. Knowing how to seal this entry point properly is crucial to successfully keeping wildlife out of your home or business. Below are a couple of photos where roofers and gutter crews unsuccessfully attempted to seal this roofline construction gap.
