Georgia is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Cartersville wildlife control services if you want to solve a critter problem legally and correctly. For example, we specialize in animals in the attic, which have broken into the house and almost always have a nest of baby animals. It is necessary to perform correct preventative repairs to keep pest animals a out of your house for good. We perform full building inspection, do the the repairs and we also offer attic decontamination if necessary. Rats and mice love to live in attics, and can chew wires or leave droppings. Some Cartersville animals frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.
DOG or CAT: If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local
Bartow County Animal Control

pet adoption, lost pets, and more. If you have a wildlife problem, you can try calling the Bartow County animal control, and see what they have to
say, but they will certainly not help you with a complex wildlife problem such as critters in your attic. They are a free government agency that
helps with dog and cat issues only.

Cartersville Wildlife Tip:
DO COYOTES REALLY MAKE GOOD PETS?
Web have to blame it on the Bambi syndrome(a disorder where rational thought is thrown out the window) narcissism, novelty, agression or cuteness. Whichever your pick is, it definitely has an impact on the increasing number of coyotees being brought into peoples homes as pets. Although highly unconventional , it is not impossible to own a coyote. For $8000 you can import one of these furry creatures into your home from Russia,which pioneeered domestication of wild coyotes so that they could be easy to handle in their fur industry. Domestication, is not the same as taming- domestication is breeding of specific genetic characteristics while taming is just conditioned behaviour. This is the kind of information you would need to know if planning to acquire a coyote for a pet.
The Russian variety(the silver coyote), after selective breeding of about forty generations has produced a strain of coyotes that are very similar to dogs in behavioural traits and partly their appearance except they are still coyotes-just not wild, which is very good news to pet lovers. However, there are a number of considerations to determine just how well coyotees are suited to be pets.
Unlike dogs,coyotes cannot be trained to perform tricks. Granted, they can obey certain commands but they naturally have a short attention span which makes teaching them tricks really challenging. Just like other pets, you would need to pet-proof your home so that they dont ruin furniture or drapes with their nails or their nasty smelling urine.
They are definitely not for everyone. If you are allergic to other animals then coyotees are probably not an exception. Coyotes need special attention- first, you would need to find a good vet who has experience in dealing with coyotees and if you cannot then there goes your dream pet. They need to be brushed regularly as they shed heavily during summer. They also need special outdoor enclosures that allow them enough room for playing and digging as coyotes have a stronger impulse for digging than dogs.
Coyotes are also considered rabies factors so unless you are willing to take the risk then it would be advisable to keep them away from your home and especially other pets.
On the plus side, they do not need regular baths as that is harmful to their skin. However, they need to be maintained clean with clipped nails and flea-free fur. They are also omnivorous which is an advantage as they can eat a large variety of foods but steer clear of those that would make your other pets sick. Most importantly, make sure the law in your area of residence allows for exotic pets to avoid trouble with animal control.

How to trap a fox
Trapping foxes can be a very difficult task for people who have not done it before. However, it is very easy and cheap to trap a live fox. There are two types of traps that can be used; hole-traps and cage traps.
These are the easiest to use as they only require some knowledge about the foxes to be trapped, the trap and also some patience. The first thing to do is to buy a cage trap. They are made of steel to make them strong and also to prevent them from rusting. Buy the size that can hold a fully grown dog, since foxes are almost the same size as dogs.
Buying some bait is the second most important task. You need to ensure that you acquire the right type of bait to attract the foxes to the traps. You can use cat food, a rodent or any other food materials with a scent of fish.
Place the bait in the trap so that the fox has to be wholly into the trap to feed on it. If the foxes can take a bite without getting inside the trap, then there are chances that they will eat the bait without getting trapped. Do not use too much bait since you just need to lure the fox into the trap.
To capture any foxes, you have to ensure that the trap is placed on a place where they pass through. If you place a trap far away from their usual path, then you reduce your chances of catching a fox. Placing the trap on a known fox route and using sweet-smelling bait are two ways to ensure that a fox gets into your trap.
Using cage traps needs a lot of patience since foxes move around in the night. There are more chances of trapping a fox in the night than there are during the day.
Use of ground holes
This are the oldest traps used to catch animals. All you need is a hole in the ground and very smelly bait and you can be assured that a fox will enter into the trap. Just ensure that the hole is deep enough for it to hold the fox without the chances of it jumping out as it tries to escape. For safety purposes, it is also advised that you put a weak covering that will disguise the hole as normal ground. If you have used good bait, then you can be assured that you will catch a fox or two. However, you should use this method far away from children as they could get injured if they fell into these ditches.
