Florida, FL Animal | Rat Control Professionals

     Central Florida is a great home for wildlife critters. Our mild FL winters and numerous Orlando lakes support large numbers of pest raccoons, opossums, armadillos, rats, and squirrels. The critters are constantly looking for safe places to nest and rear their young. Due to their high numbers in most Florida neighborhoods from Lake Mary, FL to Windermere, FL ; rats, bats, and squirrels will find their way through a roof and settle in the attic. When wildlife invades an attic or crawlspace, our FL rat and animal control experts are the solution.

     Wildlife Patrol is a small wildlife removal company covering Central FL including Kissimmee, Sanford, Oviedo, Lake Mary, Maitland, Heathrow, Windermere, Apopka, FL and more. We provide the best Florida animal control and Florida bat removal services! Click around our website for information about what our Florida animal trappers do and for information about FL wildlife.

The most common animal control problem for Florida, FL is animal inside attic. some critter, usually a mother animal, enters a home's attic from the rooftop. The mother - whether its rat, squirrel, or raccoon - seeks out the attic as a safe, warm place to care for its litter. Rodents in attic is more common than large animals like opossums and raccoons, but both happen regularly in Orlando, Florida.

The homeowner hears the Florida animal sporadically for a few days. The animals live up in the attic for quite a while without the homeowner realizing it is up there. Especially if the insulation is thick or if the home is rarely lived in. Most of the nuisance animals are nocturnal and awaken the homeowner from sleep with their activity.

Most animal control problems begin with small weak points in the building. Once the animals are trapped, the building can be sealed to prevent future wildlife problems. Proper landscaping and trash upkeep play a role as well, but ultimately securing the building is the highest priority.

If the animal problem is solved immediately, the animals do not have a chance to cause a large mess with their droppings and waste. In homes with longstanding problems, attic decontamination services are strongly recommended.

Milk snakes (see picture below) occasionally wander into the basement or house due to the same reasons. They can fit through a small opening as well. I have found milk snakes to be a little more ornery than garter snakes. A garter snake you can usually grab with a gloved hand, and gently place it outside, seal up the opening and you're done. A milk snake may not be so easy to grab. Always wear gloves when handling any reptile as they may have salmonella bacteria on their skin just waiting to enter your digestive tract. Then you will be sick for a few days with 'food poisoning', or worse. Not to mention that if you try to grab one, it will most likely try to bite you. Their bite is not venomous, but I will not say that it is always harmless either.

Squirrels in the attic

Raccoons generally start causing problems when they move into a structure. Living inside an attic is common. Although, I have found them in basements, crawlspaces, chimneys, and garages. There can be odors, risk of disease, and damage to interior ceilings. Chimney dwelling raccoons will make a lot of noise, especially when the young are present. If the flue damper is open in your fireplace, you just may come face to face with one in your living room also.

REMEDIATION: Once they are living in a structure, raccoons should be removed and the structure sealed up. Cage traps are used to remove them, and then the exclusion/repairs can be done. Chimney dwelling raccoons can be prevented from ever moving in just by installing a chimney cap on each chimney. Sometimes, both chimney dwelling and attic dwelling raccoons will leave once their young are old enough to walk and climb on their own, generally by mid-summer. Precautions must be taken to prevent their return the next fall, however, or they may move back in when the weather gets cold again. I have seen where they will tear off several shingles attempting to get back into an attic that they previously occupied.

 

Orlando Squirrel Removal

ll squirrels will eat mainly nuts, fruits, berries, and seeds. Gray squirrels have been known to eat baby nesting birds as well. The only other squirrel that is carnivorous is the flying Squirrel, which is rarely seen because it is nocturnal.

DAMAGE: All rodents gnaw. Gray squirrels cause damage just by their chewing. They will chew into attics, and, once inside, can do extensive damage to wiring. click here for photos
They can fall into chimneys and end up in your fireplace, or, if the damper is open, they may end up running around your house. Occasionally, I have found them nesting in a garage as well. Normally, you will hear gray squirrels up inside the attic, or running in the soffits in the early morning (around sunrise), and, again, later in the day (from 4PM till dark). They are generally quiet at night. Red squirrels, and flying Squirrels will be heard scampering around at night. Red Squirrels are more prevalent around conifer (evergreen) trees, whereas you generally find gray squirrels around hardwoods. Both red squirrels and gray squirrels prefer to enter your house from a tree that is close enough to gain access to the roof, but sometimes they will climb a deck or a porch to gain entry to the house, or cross a utility wire. Flying Squirrels can "fly" (or, more accurately glide) from trees as far away as 50 meters or so, depending on the height of the trees. They land on the roof and scamper inside. Chipmunks generally enter from ground level. Chipmunks (our species is the Eastern chipmunk) are also known as ground squirrels.

REMEDIATION: All squirrels have to leave the building in order to find food. Just a note here, chipmunks will generally enter at the basement or crawl space level of the house, as they nest underground. You can wait till they leave, and then close up the holes. The problems with this method is that between March-May, and July-October, you may trap the young ones inside causing them to die and odors, flies, etc. will be the result. Another problem is that sometimes they will just chew in somewhere else. I believe that the animals causing the problem should always be removed, and then the holes sealed up to prevent others from infesting the structure. We remove them with cage traps and then the entry holes need to be sealed up to prevent new infestations. This is the method I generally use. I remove all the squirrels, then either close up the openings (at additional cost), or if you have a carpenter or handyman who can do it, then you can opt to do it that way. Just removing the squirrels, and leaving the access holes open is NOT considered to be the complete solution. On older houses, sometimes the repairs can get very expensive.
