Georgia is full of wildlife, including snakes, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, opossums, and more. Wildlife removal is a complex field. I recommend professional Macon 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. In fact Macon wildlife frequently enter homes, and correct removal is not a simple task.

County Animal ServicesDOG or CAT: If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Bibb County Animal Services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, lost pets, and more. If you have a wildlife problem, you can try calling the Bibb County animal services, 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.

Macon Wildlife Tip:
Keep rats from car - Rats that can't get inside of a home will look for the next best thing: the car. The ability to keep rats from the car has to do with keeping rats away from your home in general. Sometimes, despite your best efforts, a rat will enter the vehicle. Using cars frequently will lessen the chances that a rat will feel safe enough to make an attempt on the underside of a car, but it does not take more than a few hours of inactivity for rodents to set up shop. There are no repellents for rats. All the mothballs in the world will not prevent a rodent from creeping under the hood. If you want to sleep at night knowing your vehicle is safe, the best thing you can do is to keep the car inside a sealed garage. Cars and trucks that sit outside will be susceptible to rodents despite most efforts. You can place traps around and under the vehicle, but be prepared to catch other animals. Some vehicle owners suggest keeping the hood of the car open to prevent the safe feeling of shelter that rats look for. This may work but is not practical for cars in certain areas of the country where weather is unpredictable.

Macon, GA Animal Control News Clip:
A wild job

Macon man uses love of hunting, trapping wildlife to make living
By Jackie Docauer
For the Telegraph
It may be a nighttime flutter of wings, skittering of claws or the unmistakable scent of a skunk.
Whatever the cause, chances are good that critters have moved into living spaces meant for people.
Enter Rick Benson of Macon, the owner and operator of Southern Wildlife Control. As such, Benson is a licensed and certified wildlife control officer and has more than 40 years of experience with wildlife through his hunting, fishing, trapping, and farming and livestock operations.

"Call me crazy, but I love this work," said Benson, who has operated his business throughout Middle Georgia during the past two years.

Armed with the appropriate equipment and protective gear, Benson offers services that include inspection and removal of wild animals.

"State laws regarding proper removal must be followed, because some animals, such as bats, are protected," Benson said. "At the same time, procedures for handling bat infestations must be rigidly followed because of the danger associated with their guano (droppings)."

Benson didn't begin his career trying to control nuisance animals.

"I wanted to be an FBI agent or a doctor. In each case, I was on a waiting list for entry into either the school or academy and found my path was diverted by the practicalities of having to earn a living," he said.

Growing up in Macon, Benson's first job was sacking groceries at the Mulberry Market when he was 14. "I think that was early training in customer satisfaction."

Attending Lanier High School, when it was a boy's military training school, Benson prepared for what would become a stint in the Army. As a lieutenant, he served as company commander and then as captain in the Green Berets during his two tours in Vietnam, as an Airborne Ranger.

"I returned to school after the service and ended up getting my education in studies that led me to a long career - 34 years - at Robins (Air Force Base) as a mathematician and special operation forces supervisory program manager," Benson said.

"I grew up hunting and fishing in Georgia with members of my family," he said. Some of his adventures were more exciting than others, preparing him for future encounters with wildlife.

"When I was around 5 years old, I was out in an old boat with my Uncle Buddy one day fishing down by the Walkers Lakes area. Buddy was always afraid of snakes, and a big water moccasin fell off of a limb right into the boat," Benson said. "He had his 12-gauge shotgun and he shot it right through the bottom of the boat. So there we were, sinking into the water, which was only three or four feet deep, and he was beggin' me not to tell my momma about what happened."

Sarah Green, Benson's mother-in-law of nearly 40 years, said Benson's love of the outdoors has always been strong. "Sometimes I just don't know how he can do what he does with all those critters," she said. "The stench has got to be awful!"

Benson's wife, Johnsie, will sometimes help him with the removal of skunks.

I have always spent a lot of time around wildlife with all the trapping and hunting I have done over the years," said Benson. "But I was at one of the Fur Takers (of America) conventions a few years ago and learned about making a living doing what I like doing, so I came back to Georgia and decided to get what I needed in terms of licenses, certification and additional training to start my business."

Benson still enjoys hunting and trapping. "Just last year I purchased an 1894 Newhouse Bear Trap and set out for Maine to try and get me a bear," he said. "I made my own recipe scent and managed to get a 200-pound black bear after two days."

The recently processed pelt is now lying across the bed in Benson's guest room. When he's not working, Benson manages a small ranch in Twiggs County where he raises Angus cattle. He also likes to feed birds and build bluebird houses. He also collects books by Havilah Babcock and Archibald Rutledge.

"I have a great interest in this country, its Founding Fathers and how we came to be where we are today," Benson said. "I consider myself a staunch defender of our constitutional rights and freedoms and as such try to remain focused on what is important in life and for this country as a whole, not just my small part of it."

MACON ANIMAL SERVICES - New county animal wildlife management habitat opens in Macon

The wildlife management habitat, which has nuisance wildlife operators and registered veterinary technicians on staff, boasts a state-of-the-art medical center, including a surgical suite and exam, triage, preparation, recovery and isolation rooms, and X-ray facilities. There are grooming facilities, behavior-evaluation areas, three indoor extermination interact rooms and three outdoor extermination interaction/exercise areas. For more information, call the animal services of Macon, Georgia.

The wildlife containment unit also has a separate area for animals being held in investigations of cases of abuse or neglect, complete with a secure evidence locker. There may be a large food storage and preparation area, a separate laundry room, and an automated wildlife containment unit to wash dishes. Staff and volunteers have ample office space, enhanced work stations, a lounge and a 700-square-foot community organized hearing room and staff training wildlife containment unit. Though they may offer assistance with the cuddly wild critters, don't expect help with wildlife.

The Macon exterminating company expert explained that the purpose of the new wildlife management habitat may have been not just to improve the conditions of the animals, but to make it more inviting to people who might want to adopt them. "People feel good when they come in here," she declared. "They want to adopt and volunteer." Animal and carcass elimination services in Bibb County is dedicated to helping Georgia and Macon.

The Macon exterminating company expert declared the North County regional wildlife management habitat, which serves over 7,000 animals each year, has always had the highest extermination rate among the county wildlife management habitats, and that she expects the amounts to increase. She hopes the new wildlife containment unit will also help the county meet its goal of ending euthanasia of adoptable animals. Wildlife management habitat staff estimated that there are 50 opossums and baby squirrels and 70 raccoons now available for extermination. Bibb County animal services in Macon, Georgia, declined to comment on the situation.
