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

Coyotes
Palmetto Wildlife Extractors always recommends practical
solutions to prevent predators from gaining access to
domestic animals, but in some cases, it is best to remove
the problem predator, or predators from the area in
question.

In South Carolina, coyotes and foxes are the usual threats,
although bears, raccoons and skunks can be problematic,
as well. Palmetto Wildlife Extractors possesses the
knowledge, skills, abilities and special tools to remove and
control problem predators from urban and rural areas.

Raccoons
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
your house. When present in an urban area,
they can often ...

Snakes
Do you have spaces around your house that you love
spending time in? How would you feel if suddenly
something long and thin slithered beneath your feet while
you were sitting with your family in your garden?

You would most likely be completely bewildered. Most
snakes love to stay in gardens, where they can easily
catch some prey. Usually snakes are most active from the
beginning of April until mid-fall. However, you may see
them any time.
Slide thumbnail
Beavers
For those who believe that managing a beaver problem
is only possible by killing them, we say it is not so.
The beaver population is on the rebound in South Carolina.
Palmetto Wildlife Extractors believe in trapping and
relocating beavers as an effective method to get rid of them.

How Do You Identify Damages Caused By Beavers?

Dam building

Fallen trees

Burrowed den in the bank of a water body

Thousands of acres of cropland and pine plantation

Rats
The fact about rats is that they are everywhere and not
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.
Slide thumbnail
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.
Slide thumbnail
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.

The following symptoms may indicate the presence
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.

State Agencies In South Carolina

Local laws require that any assistance needed with domestic animals, such as a dog or a cat be referred to a local agency.

Most agencies can help you get rid of stray dogs or cats. Many can also help you with such items as lost pets, removing deceased pets or complaints about abused animals or suspected neglect.

For your convenience here is a list of agencies in South Carolina. While we do our best to maintain this list… if for some reason you spot an error or a number that has changed, feel free to notify us so that we can make the corrections.
