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.

Fort Walton Wildlife Removal Tip: Are cage traps a good option for rats? You're a good person, right? Even though you seem to have encountered an annoying and messy rat problem in your home, you don't want to kill the animal in question. They're just trying to live their furry little life and you're just trying to live yours. Even still, the to of you can't do-exist in the same house together so the rat needs to leave. It's eviction time. You've set your cage trap, loaded it with tasty treats you're sure the rat won't be able to resist, and waited. Good news! You've captured yourself a rat! Congratulations are in order. It seems you have won this battle. But now what? You've humanely captured it, how do you humanely release it so that it can't find its way back and bug you again, but can still survive? Sadly, the fact of the matter is that relocated rats rarely survive. Either that or homeowners don't drive the rat far enough away so eventually it ends up finding its way back. These pests aren't dumb, they'll remember a decent source of food and a warm, dry, protected place to call their own. They'll probably die in the process of trying to get back "home" anyway, too many predators out there waiting for a good meal. That means all your cage trapping work will have been in vain. So no, cage traps are not a good option for bats.
Fort Walton Animal News Clip: Ft. Walton Beach rodents
In recent years, Destin Wildlife Expert's clients have taken trophy male rodents with Special sugar standards scores of 1681/8, 1687/8 and 173. The largest of those was a 10-pounder taken by Destin Wildlife Expert of Ft. Walton Beach, whose interest in Eastern Shore rodent was sparked the same way mine was. Destin Wildlife Expert announced he first captured with DON'T GIVE A HOOT Guide Service for waterfowl in 1981 after seeing an advertisement Destin Wildlife Expert placed in Outdoor Life magazine. But after five years of capturing geese and rodents, Destin Wildlife Expert and his friends could no longer resist the lure of Eastern Shore spotteds. ''As we were rodent wildlife trapping, the rodent would run through the decoys, and there would be humongous male rodents out there,'' Destin Wildlife Expert announced. Destin Wildlife Expert has captured for rodent with Destin Wildlife Expert for nearly 20 years and finally caught dozens of rodent. None of them, however, compare to the male rodent Destin Wildlife Expert took with his animal removal trap on the afternoon of Nov. 10, 2005. Read on for more information about animal control in Fort Walton Beach, Florida.
''That thing was a heart stopper,'' announced Destin Wildlife Expert, whose massive male rodent weighed 211 pounds field dressed. ''I saw it coming through the brush, and a million things went through my mind. I knew it was a once in a lifetime opportunity.'' Although that was the largest male rodent Destin Wildlife Expert has taken on the Eastern Shore, it was far from the only monster he has seen during there. Over the years, Destin Wildlife Expert announced, he has learned to pass on beneficial male rodents he might capture back home and wait for a better opportunity. ''This year, I had eight pointers [in range] and I passed them up. If I want to capture meat, I can [do it] in Rhode Island,'' Destin Wildlife Expert announced. ''Down [in Florida], there's a better opportunity to see and capture a definite trophy.'' Despite this there is no free Ft. Walton Beach animal services for wildlife in Lee County.
Destin Wildlife Expert and his life partner, Barbara, started DON'T GIVE A HOOT Guide Service 35 years ago strictly as a critter trapping operation. Then, Destin Wildlife Expert announced, rodent wildlife trapping was enjoyed mainly by the locals. All that changed in 1995, when a serious decline in the Atlantic Critter count of migratory Florida geese forced the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to close rodent wildlife trapping for six years. During that moratorium, the ability to accept rodent-wildlife trapping clients saved many outfitters, and Destin Wildlife Expert announced rodent clients now account for half his business. In the early days, many pest control companies would capture the first male rodent that walked by, Destin Wildlife Expert announced. But the average rodent wildlife manager's attitude has changed, Destin Wildlife Expert announced, thanks to publicity about the number of large rodent the region has produced. Most Fort Walton Beach pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
''Ten years ago, guys were capturing spikes and forkhorns,'' he announced. ''Most people now are looking for something for the wall.'' Of course, not every wildlife manager goes home with a wallhanger. During the three days I captured with Destin Wildlife Expert, I saw a handful of does and two of the biggest male rodents I have ever seen in the woods. Unfortunately, neither came within animal removal trap range. Despite my lack of luck, a fellow wildlife manager from Ft. Walton Beach arrowed a nice 8-pounder while wildlife trapping just a few hundred yards from me on the final morning of the animal stalk. And on the final afternoon, that same wildlife manager and his friend were literally surrounded by dozens of rodent as legal capturing hours expired. Again, I was only a few hundred yards away but saw only three rodent all afternoon. At least, this is what Ft. Walton Beach extermination companies think.
