The brown bat is the species most frequently found in Alabama. These bats often take up residence in attics, establishing nursing colonies that increase in size year after year, as they return annually to the same location to nurture their offspring. 

The process of bat eviction involves installing a one-way check valve at their entry point. This allows the bats to exit but prevents them from re-entering. After several days, the check valve is removed and all entry points are securely sealed. 

It's important to note that bat eviction should be performed either before May 15th or after August 15th, as this period marks their breeding season. During this time, the young bats need to be able to leave the roost alongside their mothers. 

If your home has been invaded by bats, don't hesitate to reach out to us.


Beavers can instigate significant flooding and damage to trees. They fell the trees for food, consuming the twigs, leaves, and the layer beneath the bark. The remains of the trees are then used by these industrious creatures to construct lodges and dams. 

On lakes or ponds, they have a propensity to obstruct culverts and spillways with their dams, leading to a rise in water levels that can result in flooding. When beavers inhabit streams, they construct dams that can create a lake environment to their liking.

If you find that beavers have become unwelcome tenants on your property, don't hesitate to contact Alabama Wildlife Services. We specialize in the safe and humane removal of these creatures.


If a colony of birds have moved into your attic, we take great care to remove the wildlife safely and effectively, and we solve the problem permanently, with guarantee!


Chipmunks cause problems to slab concrete, foundations, and retaining walls with their burrowing activity. They also love to raid your vegetable gardens and chew on the roots of your plants and bushes. If you have a chipmunk problem give us a call.



Flying squirrels are nocturnal creatures. They are very small and easily make their way into attics, playing around at night and keeping you awake. Give us a call, we can remove them and make repairs to your home to prevent re-entry.


Are moles destroying your lawn? Moles breed once a year, generally in February and after a six week gestation period can produce litters of 2 to 6 moles. Call us now to make your removal before the spring litters arrive. Did you know? Moles do not hibernate and are active year round. Moles are very territorial. You generally average 1 to 3 moles per acre, unless there is a female with dispersing young. They can eat their weight a day in high energy food. 80% of a moles diet are earthworms, and the other 20% comes from other insect larvae in the ground such as ants, grubs, spiders, etc. They can dig 18 feet of tunneling an hour and throw up numerous piles of dirt known as mole hills, destroying a beautifully manicured lawn in search of high energy food. Moles can be trapped year round, so don’t ignore your lawns in the winter to avoid spring litters.


Opossums love to take up residence under your decks, crawl spaces, under sheds, and in attics. We can make repairs to your home to prevent re-entry. Give Alabama Wildlife Services a call if this pesky critter is causing problems.


Three of the raccoon's most distinctive features are its extremely dexterous front paws, its facial mask, and its ringed tail.
Even though they may look cute and cuddly, raccoons can be absolute menaces to homeowners. Raccoons are good at tearing up gardens, lawns, to destroying attics and crawlspaces, to chewing through your home's wiring, pipes, home exteriors and even tearing holes in roofs. And that's not even including the health risk they pose, carrying various diseases like rabies and raccoon roundworm, which can affect both humans and pets.

Hearing scratching in your walls or attic at night? This might be rats or mice. 
The typical house mouse is very small and can fit into a hole the size of a dime. So the best way to prevent them from invading your home is to seal these entry points with the proper material. This can be a daunting task because houses usually have little hidden gaps, cracks and this makes it almost impossible if you don’t know what to look for. A professional will usually be able to find these areas quickly and repair them to prevent future problems.
We always recommend using traps over poison because this makes it easier to remove the mice. Using poison for controlling the population outside of the home isn’t a bad idea but this should be done by a licensed and insured professional like Alabama Wildlife Services.
In north Alabama we usually deal with three types of rats: Roof rats, Norway rats and Pack rats. 
Adult roof rats measure 6/8 inches in body length and 7/10 inches in tail length, that’s 13/18 inches in total length. 
Signs of a rat infestation could be noises in the attic at night, large droppings inside the attic/ home and seeing dead or alive rats. These rats love to live in your walls and attic but when populations get out of control they will stay underneath or even inside of the home. 
These rats are usually larger than the roof rat in body size but not tail length. They like to live closer to the ground usually in crawlspaces this is when they become a problem. Signs of infestations may include noises in the crawlspace at night, large droppings in your crawlspace/home and seeing live or dead rats.


All these rats are known for being able to gnaw through almost anything. This can make rat exclusions very hard and time consuming. We recommend trapping the animals over poison because this makes it easier to remove the rats. Using poison for controlling the population outside of the home isn’t a bad idea but this should be done by a licensed and insured professional.
Rats, mice are known for carrying diseases such as jaundice, rat-bite fever, trichinosis, hantavirus, salmonellosis and listeria. They are all known to multiple very quickly with mice having between five to ten litters per year. Rats have between six to eight litters per year. Both can produce between five to ten offspring per litter and these offspring start producing litters in four to six weeks.

Skunks around the home can cause a lot of problems. Sometimes the dog gets sprayed or you get woke up in the middle of the night because a skunk has sprayed underneath your home.
What causes skunks to live underneath your home or shed? Either they are looking for a nice warm dry place for the winter or in early spring they are looking for a place to have babies. Early spring is when homeowners usually notice they have a problem. This is breeding season for skunks and the females will spray the male to make him leave her alone. When this happens the scent can be very strong and will permeate carpets, clothing, ac unit duct, etc... And this could last up to 6 months if left untreated.
Skunks usually enter a crawlspace underneath ac units, foundation holes or missing ground vents. These animals can be difficult to remove and would never recommend DIY skunk tapping unless you are an experienced trapper.
Disease- leptospirosis, canine distemper, canine hepatitis, intestinal roundworm (Baylisascaris columnaris), rabies.


Finding a snake in your home is disconcerting, but don’t panic. Call Alabama Wildlife Services and let us safely and responsibly remove the snake and identify the entry point so it can be addressed. 


Are you hearing scratching, scurrying, and noises coming from your attic, especially in the mornings and evenings? Those noises could be coming from squirrels.
Squirrels in your attic are more dangerous than you may think and need to be removed ASAP.


There are lots of electrical, cable and security wires in your attic that squirrels like to gnaw on.

Squirrels are members of the rodent family so their front teeth are constantly growing and they are looking for objects to grind them down with. This is not good news for your wiring, siding, fascia, soffit and other areas.

Rodents are estimated to cause 25% of all house fires of unknown causes.

Squirrels are entering the home from somewhere. Gnawing on your fascia, soffits, siding, roof vents, gable vents and using construction gaps.
The longer that squirrels live in your attic it is more likely they will create multiple entry points.
Sometimes underlying problems like leaking roofs and clogged gutters causing wood rot create entry locations.


The goal of insulation is to keep the rooms below cool in summer and warm in winter. If squirrels and other animal get into your attic they will urinate and defecate on your insulation causing it to become a danger and requiring it to be replaced.

Animals will also pack insulation in by running over it or remove areas of insulation to build nest. This can be fixed sometimes by just adding additional insulation in the attic.

Sanitation of the attic is always recommended before installing any new insulation after an animal infestation.


Squirrel droppings can cause salmonella, and decomposing animals can spread disease and encourage infestation of more repulsive pests. Squirrels can carry Leptospirosis, Lyme disease, Salmonellosis, Tularemia and rabies.

Rabies Control

Rabies is a severe viral infection impacting the central nervous system, which is typically fatal once contracted. The virus is found in the saliva of infected animals and can be transmitted through bites, scratches, or contact with the saliva on a mucous membrane.

Our domestic pets act as a shield between humans and wild animals, highlighting the importance and legal requirement of annual rabies vaccinations for cats and dogs aged over three months.

Any animal displaying abnormal or unusual behavior should be approached with caution. This includes:

- Nocturnal animals active during the day
- Wild animals showing no fear of humans
- Uncharacteristic behavior from wild or domestic animals

Animals that are highly susceptible to rabies include raccoons, bats, foxes, coyotes, and skunks.

If you come into contact with an animal suspected of being rabid, you should:

- Thoroughly clean the affected area with soap and running water
- Contact us to safely and quickly remove the animal
- Seek immediate medical attention.
