Bats
Bat removal starts with identifying areas bats are using
or could use. Bats will gain entry into a structure in many
ways. Usually it is due to construction defects, defects
caused by weather, or just poor maintenance.

These locations are typically high areas such as soffit to
roof intersects, ridge ventilation caps, gable end vents,
drip edges, home additions, around chimneys, these are
typical bat pest control problems. Ridge vents are a great
example why these areas are looked at in bat removal.

During an inspection of a bat job we check the ridge vents
for lifting up, rodent damage, and end caps missing.
There is no easy long term solution in bat removal for a
ridge vent fix except to exclude the ridge vent. Palmetto
Wildlife uses an effective removal solution for bat removal

Raccoons are quite common in South Carolina, and it is
not unnatural to spot one in your yard or around your home.
However, there are less sightings during the day, as
raccoons are active at night. These cute furry animals can
be a true nuisance to some.

Feeding habits

Raccoons can feed on almost anything, but they are more
fond of creatures that are mostly found in water like
crayfish, clams, fish, snails and frogs. They also like to eat
insects, birds, birds’ eggs, seeds, nuts, vegetables and
fruits. They are great climbers and can easily get inside

easy to control unless you are a professional.
Specifications for rats can vary the length of an average
rat is from 6-18 inches that’s including their tail. Roof rats
tend to be charcoal grey in color as compare to your
sewer rat which is a brownish tan.

Their diet consists of eating almost everything, its not
much of a diet. They consume ½ to 2oz of liquid a day.
These are nocturnal creatures they eat and drink under
the cover of darkness. They are loud and gnaw at
anything they can,

rats have been known to cause electrical fires in homes
by exposing electrical wires in attics. Rats are the cause
of much damage and carriers of parasites and disease.

Squirrels
Most complaints about squirrels are from homeowners
with squirrels in their houses which include the attic,
chimney and fireplace. Squirrels will readily take up
residence in a building attic if access to sheltered areas
such as eaves and attic crawl spaces is available.

Gnawing, scratching, and pattering sounds, in early
morning or daylight hours, usually signal their presence.
Balls of torn insulation, cardboard, and dried leaves
and twigs may pinpoint nests in an attic, but nests
and young may be totally concealed within the attic
eaves or wall spaces.

Skunks
Because skunks can carry rabies, they should always be
handled by a trained professional. Animals that appear
sick or that are acting abnormally should be avoided.

of rabies or other neurological diseases in mammals:


unprovoked aggression, impaired movement, paralysis
or lack of coordination, unusually friendly behavior and
disorientation.Skunks are primarily nocturnal, although
they are occasionally active during the day.
