Woodpeckers Drumming You Crazy?

Drumming noises? Holes in your wood siding? Woodpeckers pecking and damaging your house? These sounds and damage may well be due to woodpeckers.


Woodpecker damage
to wooden buildings may take one of several forms. Holes may be drilled into wood siding, eaves, window frames and trim boards.

Woodpeckers prefer cedar and redwood siding, but will damage pine, fir, cypress, and others when the choices are limited. Natural or stained wood surfaces are preferred over painted wood, and newer houses in an area are often primary targets.

Even though woodpeckers are classified as migratory, nongame birds and are protected by the Federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act, the Critter Control specialist can help to prevent the damage they cause with drumming on your home or business.

For those who have other bird nuisance problems, bird removal encompasses more than just relating troublesome birds in the area. It includes bird relocation, fixing damage to structures (such as repairing soffit) and preventing birds from returning. Relocating birds can be a challenge since they can quickly fly away. A bird removal specialist from the Critter Control will know how to remove certain types of birds. This may include moving their food sources and moving nests. A bird removal expert will also repair any damage and modify structures to prevent birds from entering in the future.

Through our use of ecologically responsible wildlife control services, with both residential and commercial wildlife control, Critter Control helps to solve a vast array of wildlife control problems for several animals. We offer wildlife control services including wildlife control, wildlife damage control, wildlife prevention control, and wildlife control management.

1-800-CRITTER for help with any type of wildlife nuisance problem.

Critter Control of Charleston, SC and the Alligator

Critter Control of Charleston, SC received a call on Sunday to remove an alligator from the Goose Creek Reservoir.  After getting a permit from the
DNR to remove the animal from the reservoir, Critter Control franchise owner Kevin and two technicians wrestled with the animal to get into their boat.  It was too big for their boat.

At 12’2” and 800 pounds, they had to finagle the animal to shore and with the help of a backhoe, they were able to pull it from the water.

The American alligator is found in wetlands throughout the coastal plain of the southeastern United States. They can be found in almost any type of fresh water, but population densities are greatest in wetlands with an abundant food supply and adjacent marsh habitat for nesting. They prefer fresh water but also inhabit brackish water and occasionally venture into salt water.

Alligator problems occur because alligators quickly become conditioned to humans, especially when food is involved. When humans regularly feed gators they lose their fear and can become dangerous. Many aggressive or “fearless” alligators require alligator removal each year following feeding by humans. Ponds and waterways at golf courses and high-density housing create a similar problem.

The American alligator is federally classified as “threatened due to similarity of appearance” to other endangered and threatened crocodilians. Only individuals with proper licenses or permits can legally take alligators. Critter Control Technicians are Certified Alligator Specialists, with the knowledge and tools to get rid of your Alligator problem. Critter Control offices practice humane Alligator removal techniques, that ensure the safe capture and release of your Alligator issue. Our Critter Control Alligator removal professionals are trained in Alligator removal, Alligator trapping, Alligator control and in how to identify Alligator problems and prevent future Alligator damage.

Mice Control & Removal

Through Critter Control’s inspection of your home or business, find out how these mice are gaining access.  Stop treating part of the problem; treat the whole nuisance wildlife issue.

House mice are a common problem in homes and in all types of Critter Control mice removal & controlbusinesses. Nearly everyone can remember times when they were irritated by mice. Mice are nuisances to rich and poor alike. The continual drain that house mice impose on stored food and fiber, and the damage they cause to personal possessions are the most serious economic threats. House mice also have the potential to transmit diseases and parasites to people and domestic animals.

Typical locations for mice with homes are attics and basements. The common process for getting rid of mice in these areas of the home starts with inspection. Critter Control will identify the source of entry for the mice and harborage areas where damage from the mouse infestation is taking place.  We will inspect both the interior and exterior of homes in a thorough manner, in order to identify all points of entry.

Once we have identified all points of mouse entry, Critter Control will implement a mouse trapping and baiting program to quickly reduce the population of mice in the infestation. When the mice have been trapped, they will be removed from the home through a safe dead mice removal process. Then, Critter Control will seal all entry points to prevent any re-entry of mice.

After all entry points have been sealed and the mice have been removed from the home, Critter Control will use rodenticides (if allowed by the state) around the exterior of the home,  in order to reduce the mouse infestation pressure on the house. Cleaning up mouse damage and excrement in basements and attics is also an important step of the process and should be carried out by a mouse professional.

.  Call 1-800-CRITTER and talk to a nuisance wildlife specialist.
