  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Florida's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Florida's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Orange county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Apopka animal control for wildlife issues.

Apopka Wildlife Removal Tip: BLACK RACER SNAKE

The Black Racer snake, or Coluber constrictor Priapus, is a non venomous snake native to the southern United States. They are easily identified by their black body, gray belly and white chin, it is not uncommon to see one of these snakes, as they are very active during the day, but you will have to be sharp eyed to catch a sight of it before it slithers away, because they are extremely fast, hence the name "racer".

This snake can grow to be between 20 - 70 inches long, they are quite thin and do not like to be bothered. They shed their skin once a year and are color blind. This causes them to become aggressive quite easily, as making out a possible threat is not always easy. Although scientifically named "constrictor", the Black Racer does not coil it's body around its prey to suffocate it. On the contrary, is suffocates its prey by pushing it into the ground with its body.

Black Racers are excellent swimmers and climbers, they are very fast and are formidable hunters. They will hunt and eat anything that is smaller than them like insects, rodents, fish, moles, birds, lizards and even other snakes. It can attack in water or on land, and very good at helping keep the vermin population at bay near a house or garden.

Black Racer snakes are oviparous, this means that they lay eggs. The snakes mate in the spring and the female will lay the eggs during the summer. When born, baby Racers are not cared for by their parents, they must rely solely on their cunning and a little help from the camouflage they are born with to survive. Young Black Racers are born with many black and white spots that gradually merge and fade as the snake grows. They are about 6 inches long, and many of them do not survive their first year.

Though big birds such as hawks and owls may hunt the Black Racer, its biggest enemy is man. Many people's reaction to seeing a Black Racer is to kill it, but this shy snake is best left alone as it is a vital keeper of the balance of any ecosystem and can actually help to keep unwanted rodents and other small animals away from your house and garden. This being said, it isn't recommended as a good pet. Black Racers, though shy, they are very vicious and do not like being handled, even after months of captivity, the just don't get used to it and will hiss and bite if cornered or handled. They also release a very strong musky scent when under stress, in an attempt to ward off possible enemies.
