"Due to the aggressive nature of many of these animals and the fact most carry diseases that are transferable to Humans, we recommend leaving capturing, removal and handling to Us."
ARMADILLO- strange looking creature that digs holes in yards and around home foundations. Do not touch or handle these animals. The CDC has confirmed that they can carry Leprosy.We trap them in cage traps.
Black Bear-There is now open season on Bear in Georgia including Walton County. Should you need one removed from your property, we can do so safely and the meat will go to needy families here in Ga. via the DNR.

Harvested bears must be reported to personnel of the Wildlife Resources Division, Gainesville Office (770) 535-5700 or Armuchee Office (706) 295-6041 within 24 hours of harvest. After hours, call 1-800-241-4113. At a minimum, the hide and skull must be taken to the Gainesville or Armuchee office within 3 business days of harvest for tagging. Harvested bears may also be checked at any WMA check station in the counties listed above that are open for a managed deer/bear/hog hunt between 8 a.m.–8 p.m.
BEAVER- the most economically and environmentally destructive animal in North America. We trap them out and then break the dam. Water backing up in the spring and summer creates a breeding ground for mosquitoes that carry the West Nile Virus. They also destroy hundreds of thousands of dollars of timber that the landowner could have made money off of.Can be removed year round per State law.
BOBCATS-killers of Pets, Deer and Livestock. A Vector species for the Rabies virus here in Ga. Very aggressive and they will attack when cornered.Bobcats kill many newborn deer fawns on deer clubs and leases.Bobcats usually avoid areas of high human disturbance and development and only occasionally cause nuisance problems.
COYOTES/COY-WOLVES/CANADIAN WOLF HYBRIDS- the most intelligent and adaptable Predator. Located in every state and urban areas, neighborhoods, towns. The most difficult Predator to trap. Kill deer, livestock, Pets and attack humans. Very aggressive in the spring and summer when raising pups. Can carry the Rabies virus, Canine Parvo and Sarcoptic Mange and the deadly Hydatid Tapeworm eggs in their scat and on their fur. Official confirmation from UGA Veterinary School that they are direct host for Taneia Tapeworms and eggs. DO NOT TOUCH or disturb coyote or fox scat. It can cause the microscopic tapeworm eggs to become airborne and they can be inhaled. "Read in my blog about a Potentially Fatal Coyote Disease Worse Than Rabies" The most Nuisance animal calls to the Georgia DNR involves Coyotes. The results of several research studies prove that Eastern coyotes are actually Hybrids with Canadian Wolf DNA. This results in a larger body size, block shaped head and a larger front foot for Easterns. They can be removed year round per State law.
DEER-main food source for the Coyotes here in Georgia. Nuisance to tree farms, gardens and flower beds.We can remove them with bow or firearms. Carcass is given to the processor who may provide it to needy families. According to the DNR, the landowner must call his local game management office and apply for a permit. Then, if you want to hire us to remove the nuisance deer from a tree farm, please give us a call.
FERAL HOGS-one of the most environmentally destructive animals here in the United States. Can root up yards, gardens and food plots over night. We can shoot them or cage trap them utilizing methods used by the Texas Department of Agriculture. Prolific breeders that mate at least 3 times per year. Populations not managed get out of hand and a lot of damage can be done very quickly. Due to the fact that hogs breed 3-4 times per year all should be Euthanized to prevent further propagation of the species in that area. Can be removed year round per State law.
SKUNKS-Listed by the State of Georgia as a Vector for the Rabies virus as well as other diseases. We remove them with live catch Havahart traps.
RED FOX-main vector for Rabies in the spring and summer. Aggressive when raising pups or diseased. Many, many reports every year of attacks on humans.
GRAY FOX-member of the canine family with cat like qualities. Can actually climb trees. Trapped using techniques similar to those used when trapping Bobcats. Much more aggressive than Reds. Numerous attacks on children have been documented here around Atlanta.
RACCOON-one of the main vectors for the Rabies virus here in Georgia. Very aggressive when diseased and cornered. Typically come up and eat garbage or pet food left outside. We trap them in dog proof and live catch Havahart traps. Do not touch, pet or get near one of these animals. While they may be "cute" they carry deadly diseases. In fact they are the number one Rabies Vector animal here in Georgia.
RIVER OTTERS-Inhabits rivers, ponds and lakes throughout Georgia. Eat fish to the point that they can clean out a small lake or pond in a very short time. Can cross land and move to different rivers, ponds and streams. When they become a Nuisance, we can remove them.Very destructive to catfish farm operations.
SNAKES-Poisonous and Non Poisonous-we capture and relocate them to several large tracts of land I have access to in Walton County.
"Nuisance Wildlife Trapping is a Very Specialized Occupation just like Carpentry, Electrical and Plumbing. While the last 3 trades are priced on an 8 hr. work day, ADC Trapping is priced on a 24 hr. work day. You are hiring an Expert with years of Wildlife Behavioral Experience as well as Renting his specialized equipment to perform a very specific job. Very few people can do what we do and do it well. You receive 3x the value for your money with Trapping than with the 8 hr. work day trades because our traps and lures are on site "working" to capture the nuisance animal 24/7. Each situation is different, therefore we are adaptable and flexible. We must scout, place and lure the traps, check the traps every day and relure as needed. Lures and expendables are required for trap setting. We have fuel costs for our Trucks and UTV's. General Liability Insurance premiums come every month. We do not trap for the Fur since Fur Market fluctuations will not generate enough revenue to cover our expenses. We must price accordingly to cover these costs as well as our time. Please keep this in mind when you ask about our Services. As with most any other Trade or Occupation, you get what you pay for. For certain Businesses and Municipalities, our services can be Tax Deductible."
