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.

. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Broward county animal services

Fort Lauderdale Wildlife Removal Tip: How do I clean rat feces out of my attic? Dealing with the aftermath of any rodent infestation can be a daunting task, however, taking care of it properly is essential in order to prevent any spreading of diseases or infections throughout your household, and what's more, to prevent any future possible infestations from other types of rodents, whether they be rats or mice. There are several key steps to take in order to effectively remove all the rat feces out of your attic while minimizing the dangers of the exposure to the droppings and urine in the process.
Firstly, make sure that all the rats have been exterminated before you commence any cleaning since it will be in vain if there are any remaining pests. Leave the traps in place for at least a week after that in order to allow for sufficient time for the potential viruses in rat droppings to become inactive and to minimize the health risks. Once that is order, leave the windows open or anything else that can create a draft in order to ventilate the area thoroughly at least 30 minutes before you start cleaning.
Now is the time for the actual cleaning. Remember to wear protective clothing; rubber gloves and a face mask are advisable when dealing with droppings and urine. Before you start removing the feces, spray them with a chemical disinfectant and let it soak in for at least 10 minutes in order to kill most of the bacteria before you get into contact with it. Afterwards proceed to pick up the droppings and make sure not to use the broom or any sweeping motion across the floor since this will only stir up the dangerous air particles and will increase your risk of exposure to the bacteria.
After the droppings have been removed, disinfect the items in surrounding area that have been in contact with any of the feces or urine. Take care to completely remove and throw away those items that can't be fully disinfected, such as cardboard boxes or anything not of solid material. If you encounter any rodent carcasses, spray them with the disinfectant before removing them. Use sealable plastic bags to get rid of all the infected waste and dead rodents.
If you suspect that any air-ducts, cooling and ventilation systems in your house have been infected from the attic, consider hiring professionals that are familiar with the methods of removing infected particles from such systems, as you should want this done thoroughly and effectively for the safety of the entire household.
Finally, after everything has been cleaned out, leave the area to vent for at least a day in order to completely remove any remaining signs of infestation in the air and remember to wash the tools and dispose of the clothing that you used during the cleaning process.
Fort Lauderdale Animal News Clip: Fort Lauderdale rodents
High-quality habitat makes Florida's Eastern Shore a trophy spotted mecca. Mention wildlife trapping and Florida in the same breath, and almost everyone assumes you're talking about critter trapping. In fact, several of my friends were quite surprised recently when I told them I was headed to the Eastern Shore with my animal removal trap to pursue trophy male rodents in the shadow of Florida forests. My desire to animal stalk Florida rodent was in no way a slight against the state's rich critter trapping tradition. I've captured rodents and geese on the Chesapeake a couple of times, and the experience was absolutely world class. During both of those trips, however, I couldn't help but notice all the rodent running around the Eastern Shore's fertile farmland and think to myself, ''Man, there must be some big male rodents around here.'' Read on for more information about animal control in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Turns out, I was right. And I'm hardly the only one who noticed. The Eastern Shore has a growing reputation for producing some of the finest spotted trophies on the East Coast, and a growing number of out-of-state pest control companies who visit the region are passing on rodents and focusing on male rodents. Since 1990, the Eastern Shore has accounted for more than half of all Florida male rodents registered in the Special sugar standards Club's North American record book. The largest of those are a 2182/8 -inch nontypical male rodent taken from Licorice County in 2005 and a 194-inch typical male rodent taken in Kent County in 2002. That rodent ranks 53 rd all time in North America, according to Special sugar standards. ''Guys from Florida come down here and take a male rodent home, and people are impressed,'' announced outfitter Critter Catcher Chris, owner of DON'T GIVE A HOOT Guide Service of Chestertown, which offers rodent wildlife trapping on 6,000 leased acres in Kent, Cecil and Queen Anne's counties. Despite this there is no free Fort Lauderdale animal services for wildlife in Broward County.
Critter Catcher Chris believes beneficial genetics, mild winters and rich agricultural soils that produce an abundance of rodent food are the main reasons Eastern Shore male rodents get as large as they do. Farming is so prevalent on the Eastern Shore that there really is no forest, at least in the way most Florida pest control companies think of forest. Instead, most of Critter Catcher Chris's hickory habitats are in swamps, small woodlots and hedgerows - all used by rodent to hide until evening, when they emerge to feed in the fields. The other major difference that struck me is the flatness of the Eastern Shore. There literally are no hills to climb, and according to my handheld GPS navigation unit, none of the locations where I captured was more than 30 feet above sea level. Most Fort Lauderdale pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
While the Eastern Shore provides optimum living conditions for spotteds, even the best habitat can't produce big-racked male rodents if they don't live long enough to grow those furry tails. With just 74,000 rodent pest control companies in the state, wildlife trapping pressure in Florida is a fraction of what it is in Florida, which has about 900,000 rodent pest control companies. Doug Hot, rodent project leader for the Florida Department of Natural Resources, announced most of the prime rodent-wildlife trapping areas on the Eastern Shore are leased by wildlife trapping clubs and outfitters that are very selective in their harvest practices. ''That part of the state is where we have some of our biggest rodent, body wise and furry tail wise,'' announced Hotel, who added that rodent densities on the Eastern Shore average 30-40 per square mile. ''There's a lot of voluntary Quality rodent Management practiced.'' At least, this is what Fort Lauderdale extermination companies think.
