Repairing Entry Sites
Once the inspection has been performed, Wildlife Patrol will have identified areas of the structure that are allowing animals to enter. Closing these sites is essential to protecting the building for the long term. If only trapping is performed, the target animals may all be caught... but unless the structure is secured, the problem will recur when new animals find these weak points.

The repairs needed are unique to the structure and the cost involved in their closure is determined once the site is fully inspected. In general, large animals (raccoons or opossums) enter through one site; whereas smaller animals (rats and squirrels) enter through multiple sites. This means that in general more repairs are required for rodents than for large animals.

Repairs are performed at the same time as the trap setup. The repairs assist the trapping process in that they guide animals into our traps or confuse the animals, making them easier to catch.

The Wildlife Patrol Advantage
  • The owners of this company will perform the repairs themselves. This translates to higher quality work - stronger, longer-lasting, and better looking.

  • We will work from the inside of the attic when possible in areas other companies will not trust to send their employees.

  • We give all customers a full evaluation of the home and the work that should be done. We evaluate your home on the principle of what we would do for our own home. Repair recommendations are ranked in the order we judge their importance.

  • All repairs performed by Wildlife Patrol are guaranteed against re-entry; and we fully expect our repairs to last permanently.

  • Mosquito County was created in 1824. It was renamed Orange County in 1845 for the fruit that constituted the county's main product. At its peak in the early 1970s, some 80,000 acres (320 km˛) were planted in citrus in Orange County. A truly impressive sight while driving through the rolling hills of the region were the vast vistas of the dark green foliage of orange trees and the intoxicating scent of the orange blossoms when in bloom. Today, far fewer commercial orange groves remain. The vast majority of groves were destroyed by the devastating freezing temperatures experienced in several severe winters of the early 1980s. The financial setbacks, (not the first in the history of the grove region), was just too much for many growers and many, economically destroyed, just walked away from the land and its outstanding obligations. Others hung on awaiting any opportunities. One of the major land owners and growers in the region was the Tropicana company. They, however, also threw in the towel rather than try to come back again from these seemingly generational decimations. With no realistic avenues for agricultural utilization of this rural land and Florida's continuing strong population growth and its attendant needs, (not the least of which was aided and abetted by the great success of nearby Disney World and Universal Studios), these areas began and continue to be, swallowed up by growing housing developments. However, several packing plants and wholesalers who get their oranges from elsewhere in Florida are still in Orange County.

    Tips for Dealing with Urban Wildlife

    All of us, at one time or another, are probably going to experience the excitement of a visit from local urban wildlife. And although such experiences are wonderful and quite memorable, sometimes they can also be problematic. Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation (WRR) has developed these Tips for Dealing with Urban Wildlife. If, after reading these tips, you still have comments, questions, or concerns.  Cap Chimneys

    All chimneys should be capped to prevent entry by wild birds and mammals. The average cost of capping a chimney is far less than the average cost of removing trapped wildlife. Chimney caps also prevent sparks from leaving the chimney, and are therefore a safety device as well.

    Attics and Crawl Spaces

    If a wild animal has gained entrance to a crawl space or attic, close all but one point of entry. To determine which hole is being used as a point of entry or exit, cover all holes with a piece of plastic or stuff a rag or ball of paper into it. If it is gone the next day, the hole is being used. To encourage mammals to leave on their own, leave a repellent in the form of ammonia bags (cloth bags filled with ammonia-soaked rags) or place a radio in the space with the dial turned to a rock station at high volume. You can also try shinning a bright light into their home.

    What You Can Do to Prevent Problems from Occurring

    The two most effective and humane solutions are to secure your garbage so that you do not attract and feed wildlife and to secure your home so they cannot find convenient shelter. Garbage cans are to raccoons and opossums what bird feeders are to cardinals and doves.

    Securing Refuse: Making an Animal-Proof Garbage Can

    When you adapt your garbage can, remember that wild animals are intelligent and agile, but they are not stronger than a human. If you cannot pull the cover away bare-handed, you will have defeated any effort made by animals to gain entry. Your garbage can should have a lid that fits tightly. If this isn't possible, you might try hooking a bungie cord from one side of the can to the other to secure the lid. Or you could try placing a large rock on top of the lid to secure it. Usually raccoons gain entry into garbage cans by tipping them over. For this reason it helps to have the cans stored in racks, or tied in an upright position. Put your garbage out the morning of pick-up instead of in the evening. Most native wildlife are nocturnal and, thus, usually feed at night. If you live near a restaurant, ask the manager to ensure that the refuse bin lid is closed nightly and leave them a copy of this brochure.

    Exclusions Techniques

    Animal control experts have come to realize the importance of securing entry points in preventing many chronic wildlife problems. Most exclusion techniques are humane, as well as long-lasting and cost-effective. Make sure there are no animals living inside before using any exclusion technique. Call the WRR 24-Hour Emergency Hotline at (830) 336-2725 if you have any additional questions.

    How to Secure Your Home

    It is natural for wildlife to seek shelter. Caves, hollow logs, and large abandoned bird nests suffice in the wild, but in the city the substitutes are attics, crawl spaces, or chimneys for the same purpose. Animals are intelligent, but they should not be expected to know that they are "trespassing." After securing these areas, pay close attention during the day, as well as at night, for any sounds of scratching or whining. This would indicate that an animal has been trapped inside and you will need to immediately give the animal an exit.
