What to Watch Out for as You Cleanup Hurricane Irma’s Mess

The pummeling wind and rain from Hurricane Irma may have passed, but the repairs and cleanup have only just begun. With the cleanup process in mind, it’s important to remember that displaced wild animals are still seeking food and shelter in the vicinity of your home or business. Thousands of wild animals, including raccoons, snakes, possums, rats and squirrels, were forced to flee their natural habitat due to heavy winds and flooding. Displaced wild animals can be dangerous. Raccoons and possums are known to bite when approached, and there may be a venomous snake hiding in that pile of garbage or brush.

Even in the best of times, rodents, snakes and other wildlife take refuge in rubbish piles and overgrown vegetation. Venomous and non-venomous snakes, for example, are searching for prey such as rodents and birds. The state of Florida is host to several species of venomous snake. That’s why you should always be wary of piles of new or discarded building materials, tree branches and leaves and other assorted refuse that was blown here and there by Hurricane Irma’s mighty winds.

Floridians are accustomed to a diverse array of wildlife. Wild animals have a tendency to wander onto residential and commercial properties and take advantage of the comfort that homes, businesses and industrial facilities have to offer.

Florida residents have learned to depend on a local professional wildlife management company to ensure that homes and businesses are safe and healthy. An expert wild animal removal company can even professionally seal homes and businesses to keep wild animals outside where they belong. Wild animals can be dangerous. They also destroy building materials, contaminate surfaces with mold producing feces and urine and spread disease.

If you spot a snake, opossum or raccoon while cleaning up your property, be sure to call a wildlife removal company right away. An expert wildlife removal operator has the knowledge and equipment to safely remove venomous snakes, raccoons and other wild animal species. Unless you’re an expert in the area of snake identification, and you’re probably not, never assume that the snake you noticed is non-venomous. Venomous snake species vary in color and pattern. They are often confused with non-venomous snake species. Rely on a professional wildlife management company to keep your family or employees safe.
