Big Canoe Pest & Wildlife Control
Our company was started in North Georgia over 12 years ago in a Johns Creek suburb and has expanded into Dawsonville. We are family-owned and operated and we are passionate about what we do and the service we provide. After much encouragement from our wildlife clients for us to get into the pest control business, we took the plunge and spent years obtaining the necessary skill set, licenses, and training.
– WILDLIFE CONTROL & TRAPPING –
Every person in our company is licensed, and highly trained as a wildlife trapper. We offer affordable & humane wildlife trapping services. Our goal is to provide quick results that completely resolve the problem and not just a temporary or short-term solution. Please understand this… once you have rodents you will have repeatedly. The reason for this is the way rodents communicate. All rodents communicate via urine. It is scientifically supported, that they convey messages through hormones and pheromones in their urine. This is called “Urine Marking”. It includes hereditary info regarding the specific rodent, such as types, sex, and private identity as well as metabolic information such as social prominence, and reproductive and health conditions.
All of our wildlife trapping services are a flat-rate cost and the rat & squirrel trapping jobs are booked as a one-week duration while the advanced trapping jobs like aquatic species & predators are always booked as two-week jobs. While we are trapping, we figure out what is required to stop future access and quickly email you a no-obligation quote to exclude your home.
With all of our wildlife control services offered in Big Canoe, there is NO setup fee, NO per animal fee, NO need for an estimate. The trapping service is all-inclusive: UP TO (5) trips for rodents & UP TO Ten trips for Canine & Aquatic Species every day (not including weekends) to set the traps, and also to take away any & all rodents trapped.
Daily trap checks are essential for several reasons: 1) It is the law according to our licenses, 2) It is humane & ethical to the wildlife, and 3) It enables us to make the most out of your trapping dollars. If someone says that they place the traps and come back days later… run because it is inhumane, it educates the rodents to avoid the traps & it is illegal.
WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU WORK WITH OUR COMPANY:
⇒ A thorough & complete assessment to identify any & all target pests. This is based upon accurate evidence such as routes, feces, damage, etc.
⇒ We establish what should work best for your specific circumstance. Which just implies utilizing the correct measures, the appropriate bait & trap positioning.
⇒ We exclusively use the more expensive traps that have actually proven to be the most effective and humane.
5-YEAR WILDLIFE EXCLUSION
Exclusion is another name for critter-proofing or securing your home, we use animal-proof materials in methods to prevent the critters from getting back inside. When the critters are removed, they leave an invisible urine trail with pheromones that inevitably invite other rodents. We are experts in the field and know what it takes to keep them OUT! We just utilize the most reliable animal-proof products and devices, as a result, we have the ability to offer a guarantee that no wildlife will get past the areas where we have sealed. A few of one of the most typical entry areas for animals are:
◊ Construction Gap (Gutter Line) ◊ Gable Vents ◊ Dryer/Bathroom Vents ◊ Soffit Returns ◊ Holes
Obviously, there is no way to provide a cost for sealing your home over the telephone. While we are there every day, we identify exactly how the wildlife is getting or entry into the structure or residential or commercial property. This enables us to determine the costs for the exclusion work. Once you accept the quote, we move quickly to get the work started.

– WHY ANYONE SHOULD PICK OUR COMPANY AS A PEST CONTROL PROVIDER –
We are a family-owned business. Every person on your property is a partner in this company so we have a vested interest in the results. We take our time to do a thorough inspection to determine what is best for your exact situation. It is no longer the time of “one size fits all” pest control. We must identify the target pests and take measures to eliminate them. We will utilize habitat modifications combined with controls (biological, cultural & mechanical) with the proper amount of pesticides to resolve the problem. This approach is called Integrated Pest Management (IPM).
We apply our pesticides in a manner that minimizes risks to human health, non-target organisms, and the environment. The BOTTOM LINE: Our method successfully maintains a critter-free environment without having to rely “completely” on traditional pesticides. All of our services can be modified to suit any NEED & BUDGET. Reach out to us! Our typical household pest control services are offered on a Bi-Monthly or Quarterly basis.
– PEST CONTROL MEASURES –
Biological control is the use of natural enemies— parasites, pathogens, predators, and competitors to manage unwanted pests. However, this is the least common measure compared to the following options.
Environmental & Habitat Controls
Habitat controls are practices that reduce pests from getting established, surviving, dispersing and reproducing. Like moisture control, debris removal, etc. This is the most popular of the interventions that we invoke in our pest prevention programs.
Physical & Mechanical Controls
Mechanical & Physical controls are steps that can kill a pest directly, block pests out, or make the environment undesirable for it. (Examples; Mechanical controls could be traps, sticky boards, etc.) Physical controls can be screens or barriers – things physically stopping the bug.
Chemical Control (Pesticides)
With our approach pesticides are always used in combination with other methods for more effective, long-term control. There is a certain amount of pesticides that we are allowed to spray in accordance to the law. However, we are not just going to spray your home with the maximum allowable. We calculate the amount it will take to control the target pest and apply it responsibly. Eventually, we try to move all pesticide applications to the outside and apply only what is required in the living quarters of your home. Everyone’s objective should be to eliminate the pests before they come inside. This mindset and practice make for healthier air quality.
Our Big Canoe Pest Control Methodology
It is not difficult to be conscientious about pesticide application – it just takes a moral compass, desire and some more time. As an example, some houses or the target species may call for the use of bait stations instead of just spraying. When applying pesticides to an area it could require applying dust in a crack instead of broadcast spraying.
