Not all Atlanta pest control companies provide wildlife control services and not all wildlife removal companies provide Atlanta, GA pest control. Urban Wildlife Control is a unique pest control company. In 2003 we started as a wildlife removal company and grew into providing bee removal then house hold pest control. A lot of Atlanta, GA pest control companies started providing wildlife control over the past few years after decades of referring the customers to a reputable wildlife removal company. Unfortunately they approach the wildlife removal process with the same idea as bug exterminating. Atlanta pest control companies must be willing to get dirty in order to crawl around and inspect every nook and cranny on the roof, in the attic or under the home in a crawlspace or basement. Sending out a salesman to sell you something is a poor approach, what the customer deserves is someone who understands wildlife and is willing to get on the roof or under the home and find the problem.
In the process of the inspection some Atlanta pest control company technicians simply walk around the house and take a few measurements. This type of inspection may work when giving a quote for bug control but these pest control companies miss crucial issues when inspecting for rodent exclusion on your home or building. Almost always a good inspector needs to look at the roof and the entire attic in order to see all the damages and vulnerable areas for these rodents to attack. The competition for pest control in Atlanta, GA is fierce. A lot of times the main goal of these Atlanta pest control companies is to provide the cheapest price and a quick sales pitch. This will typically not work out in your favor. These pest control technician's training is in sales not construction. It takes a special breed of person to get their hands dirty to offer up a good solution for your Atlanta, GA pest control problem.
The inspection is one of the most crucial aspects of wildlife control. One reason is to determine if there is any wood rot or shingle damage on the roof. Many times our inspectors detect the early stages of a roof leak typically caused by a broken or chewed shingle. A small leak repaired during the exclusion process can save our customers a significant amount of money later down the road. All too often the damage has already occurred, and for a home owner that spends zero time on their roof they may not notice it until there is already significant damage. During our exclusion process we can repair these leaks and replace the rotten wood. A lot of the newer pest control companies will leave this damage because they didn't find it during the "inspection process" and the person doing the exclusion does not have carpentry skills to perform the repair. The rot and leaks are left for a new critter to find and make a new way in. If your inspector does not go on the roof but tells you of a problem on the roof ask yourself "how can he possibly know this without looking?"
