Animal Control Service
A professional wildlife control company does a lot more than just trap the animals, but still, this is an essential part of the nuisance animal solution process A lot of expertise, experience, and laws goes into wildlife trapping - from licensing and legal issues, to trap type/size, baits and lures, placement and presentation, safety of both people and animal, care for the animal's comfort, etc. Wildlife trapping should not be attempted by amateurs. One of the most common problems in this industry is the do-it-yourself people. They buy a trap, and then do everything wrong. For example, if they catch anything at all, it might be the wrong animal - a non-target species, the neighbor's cat, who knows? Then once it's caught, everyone asks, "now what?" and often calls a pro at that time. Furthermore, there's a good chance that what you've done is illegal in your state, or it's illegal to relocate the animal. And what if you get a skunk? I've gone to so many homes in which the homeowner has done the wrong thing. One customer kept catching squirrels and letting them go a block away. The squirrels all came back of course, but the thing is, it wasn't even squirrels in the first place! It was raccoons in the attic. And what if the tenants HAD caught the raccoon, WERE able to legally relocate it (they were not) and it didn't come back. Well guess what - that raccoon was a mother with a litter of five baby raccoons in the attic. The babies would have made a heck of a lot of noise for up to two weeks as they slowly starved to death. Wildlife trapping is not for people who haven't had extensive training. Please don't try it yourself - call a pro a Animal Control officer.

NUISANCE CONCERNS: Raccoons are one of the most commonly dealt with nuisance animals. They have adapted to living with humans. They have learned that garbage cans and dumpsters are excellent sources of food, and that houses are excellent habitat. A mother raccoon will often tear a hole in a roof to access an attic, where they will make quite a mess and a lot of noise. If you have a raccoon in the attic, it's going to make a big mess and leave a lot of droppings. They are strong animals, and once inside an attic, they often tear off insulation paper, rip open ducts, tear insulation off pipes, etc. They will search hard for food, and are fond of tipping over trash cans, raiding dumpsters, and stealing pet food. They will often break into a screened-in porch to get pet food. They carry a number of parasites and diseases that can affect people or pets.
RACCOON DISEASES: They are a common carrier of rabies, a potentially fatal disease. They also carry canine distemper, which can kill your dog. Their feces may contain raccoon roundworm, the spores of which humans can breath in and become seriously infected by, so it is important to capture raccoons using human habitat.
Noises in Your Walls or Attic
The most common type of complaint in the field of wildlife control is that of animals living in the attic. People hear the scratching, chewing, scampering, and walking noises up in the attic, often at night, and thus call a professional. If you do hear noises in the attic, it's probably one of these five species:
House Mice: Mice are small, and oftentimes people don't hear them, but at night when everything is quiet, you may hear the pitter-patter of tiny feet above your ceiling. The House Mouse loves to live in a ...house, and the walls and attic are safe places. At night, they may venture out into the kitchen in search of food, or go outside for food and water, then back into the house before dawn.
Roof Rats: Rats are commensal with people - they live in urban areas, and often thrive on our food and shelter. They seek out the warmth and safety of houses and other buildings, and commonly take refuge in walls or attics. If you hear scratching and running in the middle of the night, it's probably rats.
Squirrels: Squirrels are probably the most common animal in attics. These arboreal rodents usually live in trees, but many find that the attics of homes are drier, warmer, and safer than any tree - in particular, female squirrels with young will give birth to and raise the litter in an attic. If you hear the scratching and running noises in the daytime, particularly morning and early evening, it's probably squirrels.
Raccoons: Raccoons frequently break into attics in search of safe shelter. As with the squirrels, it's often a female raccoon who is looking for a safe place in which to raise a litter of young. Raccoons are very strong, and can rip open the roof or soffit in order to get in. If you hear heavy walking noises in your attic, it's probably raccoons. If you hear chattering or the squealing of young, it's probably a litter of baby raccoons
Opossums: These opportunistic marsupials often live in human structures, under sheds and houses, and they also often live in attics. Just as with the other animals, a female with young is most likely to choose to live in the attic. Possums, equipped with their opposable thumbs, are great climbers, and can easily get onto the roof to their entry point. Possums do not live in attics as frequently as these other animals, but it does happen from time to time.
Other Animals: Stray cats will sometimes live in an attic as well. Bats are very common, but people don't often notice them until the colony becomes very large and vocal, or until the odor becomes overwhelming. Birds also live in attics from time to time. Whatever the animal is, a wildlife professional can easily determine the species - if it's not spotted outright, there's plenty of evidence left behind! - Trails, footprints, droppings, chew marks, and more.
QUICK COURSE - Mice & RatsQ
Mice and Rats are commensal. That is, they prefer to share food and shelter with man. Mice and Rats and their parasites share our workplaces, restaurants, hospitals, schools, food processing plants and especially……..our homes.
IN OUR HOMES, they share the food we eat and the furniture where we sleep, relax and store our belongings. They will use plumbing voids as well as circulation vents to travel from one part of a home/building to another. It is this habit that assures the spread of contaminated nesting material, feces, and urine and body hairs.
IN JUST ONE MONTHS TIME, mice and rats can produce thousands of fecal pellets and deposit urine in areas where we eat and sleep. Their feces and urine may contain millions of bacteria or viruses and easily contaminate more than what they eat or with what they come in contact. The damage these rodents do to food and buildings runs in the tens of billions of dollars world-wide. Mice and rats are even a significant fire hazard, suspected in one fourth of all fires of unknown origin. We have a disinfection service guaranteed to destroy all contaminants.
MICE AND RATS HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE for some of the most devastating disease outbreaks of all time. More than 10 million people have died from rodent borne disease. Rats and mice are known to carry and or spread about 55 different diseases. Lyme disease, Typhus and the Plague are just a few; the deer mouse has recently been implicated in the outbreak of hanta-virus, a rare but highly fatal disease.

Are bees dangerous?
While Africanized bees have been largely over-hyped by media, these bees and European bees can be dangerous. Recently we’ve been involved with a greater amount of feral bee activity than normal. During this time, we performed bee removal on a shed where two lambs were living and were attacked by the honeybees living in the wall, one made it and the other didn’t. Later that day, we performed a bee removal on a gas station lamp post. The pole was bumped by a car backing up and the bees swarmed out and into the woman’s car window, stinging her and others nearby. A week later we preformed bee removal from a tree where a man while trimming his hedge, was attacked by bees and stung 20 times before making it from his yard to his house.
Last week I performed a bee removal from an owl box where a horse was attacked by the bees which in the past hadn’t shown any signs of aggressive behavior. Yesterday we performed bee removal for a man whose son and dog were attacked while playing basketball in the front yard. His son was fine, but the dog didn’t do as well. The normal kill ratio for a human being is 10 stings per pound; so about 1,800 stings would typically kill someone weighing 180 lbs. A typical bee hive has on average 10,000 to 40,000 bees.
Prevention is, of course, the best medicine. No wildlife control job is complete without it. This is particularly true when wild animals have entered your home or attic. If you've got rats or squirrels or raccoons or any other critter in your attic, then your home has vulnerable areas - open vents? Loose soffits? Rotting fascia boards? It could be a whole number of areas. The only way to solve the problem permanently is to find these openings and to seal them shut permanently. In fact, if you've got rodents in your attic, it might be impossible to solve the problem without finding all of these openings and sealing them shut. All repairs should be of professional quality - all holes should be fixed with steel that future rodents can't chew through.
Aside from repairs to openings in a house, other preventative measures might apply. For example, if you've got groundhogs or skunks living under a shed or deck, you might want a steel screened exclusion barrier installed around the perimeter of the architecture in order to keep critters permanently out. If you've got an elevated home or mobile home, you know that cats or other animals love to live under there and make a mess. Rats can crawl under a home and find openings by pipes and by the walls, and climb up into the walls and attic. An exclusion barrier will keep them out. There's a million little things - if you've got a lot of snakes, then perhaps some habitat modification is in order to make the property less attractive. If you've got raccoons stealing your ornamental goldfish, maybe you want netting installed around the pond or cover in the water for the goldfish to hide in. Whatever the wildlife problem, there's something that can be done to prevent a similar problem in the future. We at Florida Nuisance Trappers can help you with all of your Animal Control Problems.
Skunks are legendary
for their powerful predator-deterrent—a hard-to-remove, horrible-smelling spray. A skunk's spray is an oily liquid produced by glands under its large tail. To employ this scent bomb, a skunk turns around and blasts its foe with a foul mist that can travel as far as ten feet (three meters).
Skunk spray causes no real damage to its victims, but it sure makes them uncomfortable. It can linger for many days and defy attempts to remove it. As a defensive technique, the spray is very effective. Predators typically give skunks a wide berth unless little other food is available.
There are many different kinds of skunks. They vary in size (most are house cat-sized) and appear in a variety of striped, spotted, and swirled patterns—but all are a vivid black-and-white that makes them easily identifiable and may alert predators to their pungent potential.
Skunks usually nest in burrows constructed by other animals, but they also live in hollow logs or even abandoned buildings. In colder climates, some skunks may sleep in these nests for several weeks of the chilliest season. Each female gives birth to between two and ten young each year.
Skunks are opportunistic eaters with a varied diet. They are nocturnal foragers who eat fruit and plants, insects, larvae, worms, eggs, reptiles, small mammals, and even fish. Nearly all skunks live in the Americas, except for the Asian stink badgers that have recently been added to the skunk family
