Licenses and Credentials


My name is Ronnie Smith, owner of The Trapping Dept. and The Ratman. We rarely get calls for removal of giant praying mantis like this one, however, customers sometimes exaggerate what they saw or heard or what they think they saw or heard. We are problem solvers and results oriented with customers satisfaction being our primary goal. We accomplish this by following the guidelines set forth in the rules and regulations of the Georgia Dept. of Agriculture and the Georgia Dept of Natural Resources as they apply to the nuisance wildlife control industry. Everyday in nuisance wildlife control is a new adventure and I love this industry.
