Armadillo Control

Are Armadillos invading your yard? Armadillo are a species that is relatively new to the midlands of South Carolina. They live in underground burrows which usually have an entrance hole about the size of a volleyball. Armadillo are insectivores who are most active during the night. They use their keen sense of smell to find worms, grubs, and insects living just below the surface of the ground. What kind of damage do Armadillos do? Their damage usually looks like small holes dug in the grass similar to what a squirrel does to bury an acorn. These holes can be very numerous and will eventually destroy your lawn. Armadillo can also be a carrier of Leprosy, a flesh rotting disease that can be transferred to humans. ALL THINGS WILD can trap and remove armadillos from your property to stop the damage and health risks associated with these animals. Please call us to discuss your options for armadillo control services....

Mole Control

Are moles invading your yard? Moles are insectivores (bug eaters) that live underground. Their primary foods are earthworms, grubs, and other subterranean insects and insect larvae. Most moles are functionally blind. Usually, moles are solitary animals that avoid each other’s tunnels, so there is often only 1-5 moles in a given yard causing damage. What kind of damage do they do? Moles damage lawns by tunneling through the root systems and exposing the roots to air and physical damage. The mole’s work usually looks like a system of raised tunnels just below the grass or dirt mounds spread through the lawn (that are not ant hills). At ALL THINGS WILD, we use specific traps and trapping knowledge to capture the moles that are destroying your lawn. We DO NOT recommend repellants, sonic devices, or other methods for mole control services. Please call us to discuss your options for mole control...

Raccoon Control

Are raccoons invading your home? Raccoons can be one of the most destructive animals that get inside homes. They often gnaw on wood, cables or electrical wiring and almost any stored item. They raid trash cans and food storage areas. They destroy insulation and leave behind droppings and urine in the attic. The gnawing of wiring is perhaps the scariest damage they do – stripping the insulation from the wires increases the chances for a short and the risk of fire. If you suspect raccoons in the attic or hear noises in the attic in the morning or evening,...

Squirrel Control

Are squirrels romping around in your attic? Squirrels can be one of the most destructive animals that get inside homes. They often gnaw on wood, cables or electrical wiring and almost any stored item.  The gnawing of wiring is perhaps the scariest damage they do – stripping the insulation from the wires increases the chances of a short and the risk of fire. Those noises you hear in the attic, especially if they are heard during daylight hours, are often caused by squirrels!  The longer you let the noises go on, the more damage they are doing. If you suspect squirrels...

Beaver Trapping and Removal

Beavers make their comeback… Because their fur was once in great demand, beavers nearly became extinct in SC. Since being reintroduced in the 1940s, our beaver population is strong and healthy, sometimes with disastrous results. Beavers may damage trees and docks and can weaken shorelines and dams. They also block water flow causing floods and backing up water on  your property.  Beaver dens in the dam of your pond can cause dam failure and cost thousands to fix. Pond dam owners are even liable for downstream damages caused by failed dams… even when it’s the beaver’s fault. ALL THINGS WILD’s experienced...
