Hiring a Snake Professional

Hiring a Snake Professional

What should you do when you realize that you’ve got a snake problem? Perhaps the lush vegetation around your home or business is attracting rats, mice and other rodents. Snakes like to dine on birds and rodents. One of those snakes might even slip through a crack or tiny hole to enter your attic and hunt down the rats and mice that are living in the walls and floors of your home or business.

Snake had receded into a dark area in the walls of the home. The Go-Pro camera technology was used to secure its location and capture the snake for removal.

You could purchase a snake trap, but that never seems to work. What should you do? Well, like most professional services, it usually saves money in the long run to have an experienced professional do the job right the first time. Not only can a licensed and certified snake removal and control expert eliminate the rodents and snakes from your home or business, they can professionally seal your building so that wild animal can’t get back inside.

Florida Wild Hog Trapping and Removal

Florida Wild Hog Trapping and Removal

Call Us Today 941-729-2103

Florida is a haven for tropical animal species, but the Sunshine State is also prime real estate for wild hogs. Also referred to as feral hogs, wild pigs, wild boars and sows, wild hogs are a danger to property, livestock, pets and people. Wild hogs should be trapped and removed from your residential or commercial property by a licensed and insured wildlife removal professional as soon as possible. Feral hogs multiply quickly, increasing the possibility of incurring property damage or sustaining a serious injury. Wildlife management companies provide professional hog control, tracking, trapping, and removal services throughout the state of Florida.

Feral Hogs

Trapping Wild Hog

The presence of wild hogs should be taken seriously. Hogs are omnivores, eating both plants and animals, and have extremely sharp teeth. Never chase a hog off your property. They are definitely willing to attack and bite. Moreover, male hogs, or boars, also have sharp tusks capable of ripping flesh and severely injuring animals or people. Wild hogs have even been known to kill and eat pets and livestock. Call a qualified wildlife removal company the moment you see a wild hog near your home or business. Hogs will travel great distances to locate a reliable food supply. If they find food near your home or business, they will probably return.

Feral hogs can damage lawns, gardens and landscaping. They like to dig holes and root around in search of roots, grubs, insects and worms.

•Feral hogs can transmit diseases to pets, livestock and even humans.

•If you notice that a portion of your garden, lawn or landscaping is torn up, you may have been visited by a wild hog or armadillo.

•If you notice that your garbage cans have been overturned and garbage scattered here and there, you may have a hog or raccoon problem.

Wild Hog Trapping

Retaining a professional tracking and trapping company is the most effective means of locating and removing nuisance wild hogs. Only an experienced trapper has the knowledge and equipment to safely remove wild hogs, especially in cities and towns that don’t allow the use of firearms. Wildlife management companies often use trained and protected dogs when a hog becomes trap shy. The dogs help track and capture the nuisance hogs.

Nuisance wild hogs have been a problem in the Sunshine State for many years. Home and business owners have come to rely on the expertise of a professional feral hog removal specialist to guarantee the safety of landscaping, pets and people. One or more wild hogs can inflict significant damage in only a single night of feeding. Wild pigs are a real threat to children and employees. They are aggressive and dangerous animals. It isn’t at all unusual for wild pigs to suddenly attack people.

Get Hog Off My Property

Depending on the circumstances, it could take anywhere from one to 14 days to trap and remove a wild hog. Wild animals are naturally wary of people and traps. The hogs think that your yard belongs to them, not the other way around. Nuisance wild animals, including rats, poisonous toads, raccoons, opossums, skunks, armadillos, bats, birds, squirrels and more should be removed by a Florida wild animal removal specialist to guarantee the health and safety of family members, friends and employees.

Why does a squirrel LOVE my attic?

Small Squirrel Standing on Brown Wood
Small Squirrel Resting on Brown Wood

There are several reasons why a squirrel might be drawn to an attic. Squirrels are looking for the best place they can survive and do well. An attic provides a place out of the elements where they can feel somewhat protected as attics are not normally traveled by humans. Attics tend to be dry and warm even if you are in a cold climate. It’s almost like a hotel has put out a shingle stating “come stay here and build your nest and you won’t be disturbed” none of your enemies or threats are here so step right up!

So how do I get rid of them?

The first thing you will have to do is to seal off the entire attic. Cover up holes and entry points that are wide enough for a squirrel to get through. If you have vents, cover them with a wire mesh guard. Next, you should locate any areas that are chewed that lead inside– with the exception of one area. That is where the little guy will exit, and where he will be trapped. Additionally, make sure to secure openings between the attic and everywhere else in your home. There are several other steps to do additionally. However, if you would like to call a professional, please feel free to contact us. 1-866-263-WILD.

Defense

When threatened, an opossum typically hisses and shows its teeth to look scary to a predator. If that doesn’t work, then it will pretend to be dead and fall over on its side– this will often result in a predator walking away.

Skills

They are excellent at climbing, because they have opposable rear thumbs and long tails that can wrap around tree limbs. Surprisingly, they are also great swimmers, but do not like the water and prefer to be on land.

Benefits of Opossums

While many wild creatures harbor ticks and spread Lyme disease, opossums kill 96.5% of ticks that land on them. A single opossum may be hoovering up and killing 4,000 ticks every week and thereby protecting us from Lyme disease.
