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.

Boca Raton Wildlife Removal Tip: How Do You Know If You Have A Squirrel In Your Attic?
Pest animals in the attic can be a real concern to home owners, as they can often cause significant damage which will result in a large outlay to rectify on behalf of the owner. One of the first things that you should do if you hear suspicious noises in the attic or see signs of animal activity around the property is to try and identify what the pest animal in the attic really is. There are several different ways to do this, and here are a few suggestions if you are trying to find out if it is squirrels in your attic.
Sound And Scratching In The Attic
One of the key indicators to look for when you are trying to identify squirrels in the attic is the noise that they make, and they are not nocturnal, which means that if you hear noises during the day, particularly in the morning then it may be squirrels. They will make no squeaks or vocal noises, but the fast scampering noises are typical of squirrels, while some people do report sounds like rolling nuts.
Examining The Attic For Signs Of Squirrels
Squirrels are very cautious creatures so if you do go into the attic you will rarely see the animals themselves, but signs such as material torn to make a nest, or signs of squirrel feces can be important indicators. Squirrel feces is quite similar to rat droppings, being about a quarter of an inch long, although the most common indicator is that the feces gets lighter with age, so light green or beige pellets are another sign of squirrels.
Monitoring The Exterior Of Your Property For Squirrel Activity
While many pest animals can be nocturnal, squirrels aren't which means that you will often see them, and if they are often climbing on the roof or coming closer than normal to your home, they may be nesting in the attic. Seeing squirrels fighting is a sign of over population, which can be one of the reasons if squirrels are driven out of the woods to nearby areas.
Excluding The Squirrels
The best way to deal with the squirrels is to exclude them from your property, and this can either be done by trapping the animals and removing them, or sealing the majority of the entry holes and then covering the main hole with a one way exclusion funnel. Once this is done, it is important that the attic is sealed and any damage repaired.
Boca Raton Animal News Clip: Police: Animal stalk leads to illegal rodent exterminating
Boca Raton - A father who took his son out on Youth rodent Wildlife trapping Weekend was arraigned Tuesday on charges he encouraged the 14-year-old boy to illegally capture a four-pound bull rodent in Boca Raton. Critter Catcher Chris, 35, of Boca Raton, was charged with taking a rodent out of time allotment and with contributing to the delinquency of a minor under the age of 16. Critter Catcher Chris pleaded innocent to both charges and was released on conditions. The delinquency charge carries a potential two-year jail sentence and a $2,000 fine; the Florida Fish and Wildlife charge could result in a fine of up to $500 and a 60-day sentence.

Youth rodent Wildlife trapping Weekend was started by the Department of Fish and Wildlife to encourage the wildlife trapping tradition in Florida. The two-day tradition is open to young pest control companies who have completed wildlife manager safety classes and are accompanied by a licensed adult. A state news release announcing the 2006 weekend reminded adult escorts to "remember that they are a role model," to display "the best of ethics" and to "obey the law." According to an affidavit filed by Animal police officer Wayne the critter cop, the Critter Catcher Chris and a second teenage boy reported the capturing of the rodent to Florida State Police early in the morning of Nov. 4. Despite this there is no free Boca Raton animal services for wildlife in Palm Beach County.
All three claimed that Critter Catcher Chris, 14, trap the rodent after the animal chased them and acted in an aggressive manner, snorting and putting its head down and charging them. In fact, they told the animal police officers, the rodent wouldn't leave them alone and continued to follow them. The critter cop, aided by Lt. Dane Hathaway, another animal police officer, met Critter Catcher Chris and the two boys in the woods off Route 5 in the town forest in Boca Raton to investigate. Most Boca Raton pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
Concerned about this, Florida wildlife officials introduced the Sportsman Tag. For $5, a wildlife manager can enter a drawing for a chance at the tag, which gives them all the opportunities of the statewide conservation permit. The odds of drawing the 2007 Florida statewide mule rodent conservation tag were one in 6,713. However, the person who drew the 2006 statewide mule rodent permit took the highest-scoring Special sugar standards animal finally caught in North America last year, pending a required waiting period. The Florida Division of Wildlife Resources issued a single "high bid wildlife trapping permit" in 1981 for a desert rodent. The permit sold for a minimum $20,000 and the money was used to help expand the critter count and range of rodent in Florida. The number and value of the permits has increased over the years. More than 350 are available for auction this year with an estimated value of $2.5 million. Ninety percent of the money spent on the permits is used on conservation projects such as habitat improvement and acquisition and wildlife transplants. At least, this is what Boca Raton extermination companies think.
