WHAT IS NUISANCE WILDLIFE? Nuisance wildlife refers to an animal or animals exhibiting behavior that:
- causes (or is about to cause) property damage,
- presents a threat to public safety, or
- causes an annoyance within, under or upon a building.
Orlando Bat Removal and Exclusion
Bats in an attic can be a nightmare. Not only do bats cause structural damage with the accumulation of guano, but they also present health risks. It’s a well-known fact that bats are carriers of rabies and can transmit this fatal disease with an unnoticed scratch or bite. Did you know that bat droppings can also be a health hazard? Bat guano hold toxic spores called histoplasma capsulatum, that when inhaled can cause a lung infection called histoplasmosis.
Once the bats have been removed from the structure and the remaining opening are sealed up, any necessary guano clean up must be done. This is for multiple reasons. Mainly because of the health hazards involved with bat droppings and the dangers of sweeping them up or using a conventional vacuum to get rid of the guano. Another reason is that bat guano can weaken drywall and destroy attic insulation. If enough bat droppings have accumulated, the ceiling can come down from the weight and corrosion.
Orlando Bird Control and Nest Clean Up
Nuisance birds can cause a mess that shocks the majority of homeowners. When professional bird control is needed, it is usually because birds have taken up residence inside of an attic or an exhaust vent. Since attics are seldom visited, attics can have unbelievable amounts of nesting that accumulates over years, many times filling several contractor bags when cleaned up. Bird nesting can carry bird mites, ticks, fleas, and parasites.
Many times, we find that birds also have attracted other nuisance wildlife such as raccoons and squirrels, causing an added problem. For this reason, bird nesting must be removed from attic spaces because of the attractive odors that it holds. When clogged into exhaust vents, fire hazards present themselves.
If you have a bird problem and would like to know how to stop birds from nesting in vents or how to keep birds out of your attic give us a call. We offer complete solutions for bird removal in Naperville and have custom bird proofing that is second to none.
Orlando Squirrel Control and Prevention
A few signs that you may have squirrels in your attic are the type of noises in the attic and the time that you are hearing the noise. Squirrels tend to move very quickly and will run back and forth, often even playing or fighting with one another. Since they are diurnal, squirrel activity is usually heard during the day.
One of the problems with squirrels in an attic is that since they are rodents they like to gnaw. Gnawing is often seen on support beams, insulation boards and the worst of all, wires. It is a known fact that 30,000 fires annually are attributed to rodents gnawing wires in attics.
Our Orlando squirrel removal process is typically done by either setting baited traps near the entry points or multi-catch traps right over their entry points to catch them as they enter or exit. Trapping squirrels in an attic will produce on average 3-5 squirrels, however, in some instances there can be many more or just a solitary squirrel.
Local Skunk Trapping and Proofing
Nuisance skunks like to dig under sheds, decks, stoops and any other structure that can provide adequate cover. Skunk removal is usually the highest during baby (May-July) and grubbing season in the fall but typically lasts all year long as skunks do not truly hibernate.
The three main signs that homeowners typically noticed when a skunk has moved in is a large pile of gravel, grubbing holes in a lawn and of course, the smell. Skunk odor smells somewhat like burning due to the sulfur content that it has to temporarily blind predators that are in pursuit. Skunk odor will penetrate almost any material and is especially soaked up by concrete since concrete is very porous. The odor is usually sucked right into the home as soon as heat or air is turned on, making the entire home smell as if the skunk was inside the home. Concrete stoops are the number one den spot when it comes to skunks moving in, followed by sheds.
We also provide dead skunk removal and skunk removal from window wells.
Local Raccoon Removal and Damage Repair
Are you experiencing issues with problem raccoons? Raccoons can be problematic almost everywhere. From tearing through roofs to going under decks, sheds and stoops to a den, they can be a real danger to a homeowner, pet owner or parent.
Our services range from raccoon trapping, baby removal from inside an attic or under a structure, carcass excavation, and raccoon feces removal. Raccoons can be extremely destructive, as you may know, they will tear a hole right through a brand new roof just to den inside, especially when its a mother with young.
Our Orlando, FL raccoon trapping services are typically the same day, with the entire process lasting approximately a week before raccoon proofing can be done. Once we evaluate your needs, traps are set up near or over the entry point. Upon completion, we then place a marking indicator over the entry point to ensure no animals are coming in or out. If the indicator has been undisturbed for 3 days we then move forward with proofing and exclusion services.
Our services also cover dead raccoons that need to be dug out from a structure or cut out from behind walls. These occurrences are rare for a day to day services however, as with all wildlife issues, nothing is a surprise.
Local Snake Removal Services
Looking for snake removal services in Orlando Florida? Snakes can be found in most backyards, parks, and woodlands throughout Florida. Many species are secretive, spending most of their time underground or under the cover. Active gardeners may occasionally see small ringneck, worm, red-bellied, brown, earth, and crowned snakes. None of these species are much bigger than a large earthworm and do not bite.
Occasionally, snakes searching for rodents or eggs, or a place to shed their skin, will take refuge in barns, crawl spaces underneath homes, or sometimes in a home. The best way to keep snakes from entering your home or other building is to prevent snakes and snake food (rodents) from entering your home. Closing up all possible entrance locations is a must. Next, a rodent control program should be put in place to eliminate the food attraction for snakes. Venomous Snakes Of Florida
