Learn How to Hire a Wildlife Removal Company

Effective removal of nuisance wildlife doesn’t have to mean shooting, trapping or poisoning animals. In fact, more and more people want humane wildlife control solutions for dealing with this problem. A reputable wildlife removal service can help you implement a strategy that removes and excludes animals, and that doesn’t exterminate them unless it’s a last resort.

Here’s What a Wildlife Control Company Can Do For You

A trained wildlife removal technician can quickly and effectively:
• Identify the intruding species
• Determine their points of entry and exit to your property or home
• Find out if there are offspring that can be moved, relocated
• Trap and remove the animals
• Effectively block entry points to keep animals from coming back

How to Hire a Wildlife Removal Company

The first thing to do when calling a wildlife control company on the phone or browsing on its website is to find out if they use humane wildlife control methods. Ask what sorts of strategies are available, such as humane traps or one-way doors that block reentry. Ask whether the animals will be caught and released elsewhere. If euthanasia is required, ask for assurance that the method is painless. Humane wildlife control companies always consider whether offspring left behind in walls, burrows, nests and attics can be relocated, and will have a strategy for dealing with them humanely, saving them if possible.

Don’t Do It Yourself

We are a nation of do-it-yourselfers, but animal control is not something you should tackle without professional help. Seeking out a licensed, insured wildlife control service is the way to go. It’s safer for you, your family and pets. It’s more effective than homegrown solutions, and in some cases, less expensive because there’s no trial and error involved. It also makes sense to seek out a trained professional who knows the habits and behaviors of the animals you’re dealing with.

Animal control should be safe, humane and, above all, effective. Now that you know how to hire a wildlife removal service, share that information with neighbors and friends who might have a similar problem!

There’s a lot homeowners can do to prevent a problem, or solve an existing one. It’s important to keep in mind that wild animals don’t want to be around humans, they just want to eat, sleep and breed in the most convenient places possible. That’s often under your driveway, in your attic, on your landscape or in your walls!

You can discourage bats and squirrels from nesting in an attic by sealing entry points under eaves and replacing damaged siding or roofing. Keep trash cans securely lidded and in the garage until the morning of pickup to frustrate a raccoon. Keep rodents away by removing bird feeders for the summer and fall, when there’s plenty of food in the wild. Keeping pet food indoors and fastening pet doors at night will keep snakes and other hungry creatures from coming in.

When It’s Time to Call a Professional

Of course, if you already have an armadillo burrowed under your home’s foundation, or a persistent family of raccoons that still find a way into the trash, it may be time to call a professional wildlife removal service. No matter how small, it is never wise to handle a wild animal by yourself. They can inflict physical injury when confronted, and their droppings and bodies carry parasites and diseases.

Spring is always a welcome rejuvenation for the winter landscapes of Florida. The people of the Sunshine State are getting out and about, and so are the animals. Everything from the ever-present grey squirrel to the armor-plated armadillo is scurrying around, looking for food, digging burrows and making nests for new litters of young. Insects hatch, and bats get busy eating them, flitting around at dusk.

Wildlife Prevention Tips
Wildlife Prevention Tips

With all the diversity of Florida wildlife come the problems of invasive species, lack of natural predators and a shrinking habitat. While we enjoy sharing the environment with the wildlife that surrounds us, there are limits when it comes to the property damage we’re willing to endure. When overpopulation creates a nuisance or a danger to human health, it’s time to consider a strategy for keeping wildlife at bay.

In some cases, raccoon trapping and raccoon removal are options that need to be performed.

How to Avoid Pest Destruction to Your Home

Problem Solved - Successful Solution to IssueHow to Avoid Pest Destruction to Your Home


According to the National Pest Management Association, pests can destroy buildings and the contents within—termites alone cause more than $5 billion in damages each year. Battling unwelcome pests in your home is challenging, especially when the nuisance creatures are excellent at staying unseen. Homeowners can avoid infestation by most common pests by keeping their home neat and organized. Organize your home, room-by-room, to prevent these pesky creatures from making your home their own.

Call Nuisance Wildlife Removal, Inc. today, to humanely solve your wildlife problems, and wildlife proof your home. 866-263-WILD or 729-2103.

Seek Out Possible Entryways

Insects and other unwelcome critters can enter your home through small gaps, cracks and crevices. While your walls may appear solid, even the tiniest of cracks may not be absolutely bug-proof. Find these entryways and seal them to prevent a majority of pests from entering your home. Seal cracks and small holes with 100 percent silicone caulk and larger holes and gaps (more than a half-inch wide) with spackle or joint compound. Using a flashlight and mirror, examine every square foot of your home, inside and out, including doors, windows and the foundation.

Eliminate Clutter

The fewer items you have lying around your home, the less spaces for pests to hide. Begin by throwing away any items that are broken and clothing that is ripped or stained. Areas that are designated dropping zones, such as the garage, basement and attic, may need extra attention. After all trash has been discarded, fill a box with items that you no longer want or need, and donate these items to Goodwill or your favorite local charity.

Store Items in Proper Containers

Many items can be kept safe from pests through proper storage. Avoid storing anything in old cardboard boxes, as mice, rats and insects can penetrate soft material. Do not keep any type of box, including plastic, on the floor. Keep all items organized on a wire rack or shelf and inspect them regularly for signs of tiny intruders.

Keep any type of food supplies, such as dog food, stored in airtight plastic containers. Ensure that the pests have no other food supply, as this will force the pests to look elsewhere for nourishment.

Clean up Outdoors

The outside of your home is just as important as the inside when it comes to pest control. Keep all wood, including firewood, outside of the home. Stack the wood neatly away from the home, allowing sufficient room for the air to circulate to keep the wood dry. Keep trees, bushes and shrubs around the home trimmed to reduce the risk of infestation. Check and replace any broken or torn screens on windows and doors to keep pests out.

Call for Backup

When you just can’t get rid of the pests, it’s time to call for professional help. Signs that you may have a pest problem in your home include dead bugs found on surfaces, pest droppings, evidence of nesting, odd smells and sounds, gnaw marks and holes, grease marks and tracks, and of course, seeing the pests themselves. Call an exterminator to take care of pest problems before they can cause significant damage to the home. A professional exterminator can tell you what type of pest is in your home, how serious the infestation is and the best solution for eliminating all pests from your home.

Nonnative Animals Freeze Out

dead iguanaThe Big Chill Takes The Bite Out Of Nonnative Wildlife

South Florida’s recent unusual cold weather might be helping with the problem of nonnative species.

Pythons and other snakes, reptiles and fish are dying by the thousands as temperatures drop.

Colder Weather Puts Things Into Balance

Vultures circled over the Anhinga Trail inside the Everglades National Park where thousands of dead nonnative fish floated in the marshes.

Among the Burmese pythons found in the park lately about have of them are dead.

Dead iguanas have dropped from trees and into lawns and patios across South Florida.

Southern Tip Of Florida No Exception

In Western Miami-Dade County, three African rock pythons were found dead.

Although South Florida’s warm, moist climate has nurtured a vast range of non-native plants and animals, a January cold snap reminded these intruders that they’re not in Burma or Ecuador anymore.

Temperatures in the 30s have apparently killed Burmese pythons, iguanas and other unwanted species.

“Anecdotally, we might have lost maybe half of the pythons out there to the cold,” said Scott Hardin, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s exotic species coordinator. “Iguanas definitely. From a collection of observations from people, more than 50% fatality on green iguanas. . . . Lots of freshwater fish died; no way to estimate that.”

Nonnative fish that have infested the Everglades are turning up dead in the thousands, including the Mayan Cichlid, walking catfish and Spotfin Spiny Eel, said David Hallac, chief biologist at Everglades National Park.

Experts Agree Cold Weather Stuns Exotic Wildlife Living In Florida

No one knows how many Burmese pythons live in the Everglades, where some were released as unwanted pets and others found refuge after hurricanes destroyed their breeding sites. But there are a lot fewer today than there were a month ago.

Greg Graziani, a police officer who owns a reptile breeding facility, is one of several licensed python hunters who stalk snakes in the Everglades. In four days, he found two dead snakes, two live ones and one on the verge of death.

“Vultures had pecked through 12 inches by 4 inches down the back of this animal’s body,” he said. “I thought it was dead, and we reached down to pick it up, and it was very much alive.”

In cold weather, Graziani said, pythons go into a catatonic state, and if they don’t make it to a safe place to ride out the weather, they freeze to death.

“We’re finding the smaller pythons are handling it better than the large ones,” Graziani said. “The smaller ones can get into different cracks and crevices to maintain the temperatures they need.”
