Having a live animal enter your home or property can be a frightening thing. Georgia residents live in close proximity to many species of wildlife and sometimes our paths cross. Not to fear! They are probably much more afraid of you than you are of them. But PLEASE don’t attempt to remove a wild animal yourself! At Hawk Pest, our state licensed experts handle several species of animals and can safely and humanely remove them from your property for relocation far away! We offer hand removal of the following species:

  • Armadillos
  • Bats
  • Birds
  • Feral Cats
  • Foxes
  • Groundhogs
  • Opossums
  • Raccoons
  • Snakes
  • Skunks
  • Squirrels

Wild animals may enter your home or property for several reasons. They may be looking for temporary shelter, long-term shelter to nest, or food and water sources. Critters are active year round in Georgia but some species may be more likely to make an appearance depending on the season. In the spring and summer months, Georgia residents may encounter snakes, raccoons, opossums, bats, birds and foxes in or around their property. In winter months, it is more common to find critters in your home in search of shelter from the cold. Regardless of the season or species, if you have a wayward animal in your home or on your property, it is important to get them back into the wild where they are most comfortable.

The process to capture a wild animal can vary depending on the animal, but our certified wildlife removal experts are fully equipped to handle almost any situation that may be dealing with. We pride ourselves on offering effective animal removal services while causing as little harm possible to the animal. We want to see the animal relocated into the wild where it can live its life far from your home. Our technicians are licensed by and follow the strict protocol of proper handling and treatment set by The Georgia Department of Natural Resources. We use industry leading tools and methods to perform our wildlife removal services and all of our technicians are insured as well.


snake removal

Snake removal is a common need for Georgia residents. There are 41 different types of snakes in Georgia, of which only 6 are venomous. These venomous species include the Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake, Copperhead, Pigmy Rattlesnake, Eastern Coral Snake, Timber Rattlesnake and the Cottonmouth aka Water Moccasin. It is not recommended that you try to remove a snake yourself. Most snakes don’t present a threat, unless cornered. Trying to capture or move a snake yourself could be extremely dangerous. Our experts will properly identify and remove the snake safely.


Another common Georgia critter that may make an appearance is the raccoon. Raccoons are often seen going through trash, eating pet food that’s left outside or making themselves at home in structures including your home. Raccoons are a rabies vector species and should never be approached by people or pets. Rabies is a fatal disease to people and pets alike. They can also carry a plethora of other diseases besides rabies, many of which can be transferred to people and pets via a bite, scratch or contact with their urine and feces. When not rabid, raccoons are generally elusive creatures that prefer to hide in the shadows and be present at night when people are not around. They will almost always run if spotted, but may attack if they feel cornered. Again, it is extremely important that you do not approach a raccoon yourself. Even if they are not displaying signs of rabies, they could still be carrying the disease. Let our trained and licensed experts handle the situation for you. Once trapped and removed from your property, we work closely with veterinarians and wildlife centers to determine if a trapped animal is rabid. If the animal is diagnosed with rabies, it is humanely euthanized to prevent prolonged suffering and to prevent the spread of the disease. If they are cleared as not rabid, they will be released on private land far from your home to live happily ever after! Schedule a FREE estimate today! Our experts are standing by ready to help!
