Pest & Wildlife Services

Description:

See this short video which explains how animal control is managed by Chatham County, NC.

While many folks who have plumbing issues, electrical problems, and other common expected homeowner issues know quite a bit about solving such problems and how to find a vendor for professional repairs, many who have a problem encounter with wildlife are not always sure of what to do or where to turn for help in dealing with the situation, and may not know much (or anything) about free County and state services for dealing with a range of wildlife-human encounters.

We thought it would be helpful to include this informative message pinned to the top of the Wildlife category containing some information about County and State wildlife services as key sources of information for anyone with some sort(s) of issues with wildlife.

Residents can review such resources and factor such information into their search for service from a professional vendor, if one is truly needed or desired.

  • Chatham County Animal Services (Animal Control) offers free services for: Animal nuisance investigation and reduction; Protecting the public against rabies and other animal-related diseases; Protection against “dangerous” and “vicious” dogs, based on reports; Wildlife rabies incident investigation and follow-through (including suspected rabid raccoons, fox, coyotes, etc.); Providing emergency and disaster response for animals; Dog and cat bite management; and Free pickup of stray and homeless dogs and cats.
  • The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission Wildlife Helpline 866-318-2401 (local number 919-707-4011) is a good source of information on wildlife behavior, damage, injury, and co-existing and a place to report Report Wildlife Violations (800-662-7137)
  • What to do if you find an injured or orphaned wild animal around your home or neighborhood (or outside the village):

Comments by Fearrington Village residents:

“Lynn of Terminix does excellent work here in Fearrington.”

“Various home remedies might work (or might not) if you are patient. If, like us, you’ve had enough experimenting, periodic external treatments by Terminix may do the trick; they have for us.”

“We too are quite pleased with Terminix. We’ve used them for over 50 years in the various places we’ve lived. We’re especially happy with the Pittsboro office and its representatives. Bugs are rampant around here, especially since we live in the woods and have deer and other animals around. Terminix takes care of everything for us.”

“I use Terminex for overall bug control as well as termite prevention. Quite responsive.”

“…why don’t you try the Pittsboro office and Lynn Lafond, as so many folks have recommended? On the very few occasions I’ve had to get in touch with them they’ve either been directly available by phone during normal business hours or very responsive when returning voice mail.”

“I use the Pittsboro office also and am extremely satisfied.”

“I’m new to Fearrington but Lynn also services my home and he does a thorough and comprehensive job. I also recommend him to you.”

“I also use the Pittsboro office. I’ve used them for over ten years and have been happy with them.”

“We use Terminix and we have been quite satisfied with them. We have a maintenance program. Call Michael and he can give you more specifics about it.”

“Terminix, which serves FV for termite control, now does pest removal.”
