Here in Georgia, rodents and other similar wildlife tend to be pests throughout the entire year. However, winter is often the season when the chance of having your home invaded by furry little creatures greatly increases. There’s nothing worse than settling in for a cozy night with loved ones around the holidays only to see a rat race by or hear squirrels running around overhead in the attic. When this happens, it’s time for an inspection and our wildlife exclusion services.
It’s extremely important to deal with wildlife intrusions immediately.

In fact, even if you haven’t actually seen or heard rodents or other wildlife, you should still be on the lookout for evidence of their presence in your house. Some things to look for include:
- Animal droppings and urine stains
- Damaged insulation
- Foul odors
- Gnawing on wood and wiring
If any of this evidence is found, it’s crucial to act fast. Rodents, in particular, can multiply quickly and they bring bacteria, viruses, and parasites into your house and around your family and pets. Not only can the damage they cause to your wiring get expensive, but it also puts your home at risk for fires. Contact Bizzy Bee today for swift wildlife exclusion.
The best initial action to take is to try and keep rodents and other wildlife out of the house in the first place. A few initial steps you can take are:
- Cut back any foliage from the house
- Install gutters for your drainage
- Seal any holes or gaps that you see
It’s very important to be thorough when sealing holes around the house. Rodents, especially mice and rats, can fit through extremely small gaps. Mice can fit through a hole the size of a #2 pencil while smaller rats only need a hole the size of a quarter to squeeze into your home.
However, it can be very easy to overlook potential entry points. Once you begin find any evidence of a rodent or other animal inside of your house, it’s time to call in a professional. Our certified technicians at Bizzy Bee are experts at determining the type of animal in your home, removing them humanely, and excluding wildlife from gaining entrance back into your home.
