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 Citrus county animal services

pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Inverness animal control for wildlife issues.

Inverness Wildlife Removal Tip: The Florida Black Rat Snake: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior - Another snake that eats rats, just as the name suggests, the black rat snake is similar to the yellow rat snake, but the coloration and territory is a little different. The black rat snake is very widespread and can be found in a number of places - Kentucky, Mississippi, Florida, Georgia, the Carolinas, etc. They are adaptable snakes and have learned to live in a number of different habitats, but being good climbers, they like forested areas where they can easily hide away in the trees. Not just a great climber, it can also swim very well, so if you find a spot with lots of trees next to the water, there's a good chance a black rat snake could be lurking there. The largest snake found in Canada, it can grow to over six feet in length, and it's a constrictor, preying on animals such as rats, mice, voles, and even other snakes - their own and other species. They usually reproduce in May and June time, but the black rat snake will not give birth to live young. She will lay up to eggs which hatch about - weeks later. Another snake known to be docile in nature, the black rat snake does make for a good pet when bought from an appropriate breeder.
Inverness Animal News Clip: Wildlife company catches four squirrels, one rodent with six traps
The following day found Critter Catcher Chris and his father together in a capturing house. Early on they saw three big hogs but were not able to get a trap off. Later, the three returned, and Critter Catcher Chris's aim was true again. This time, he harvested a 350-pound squirrel. The second animal came within range, and Eddie Smith decided to take a trap. The trap hit the squirrel but it didn't take the animal down. Mr. Smith didn't have a line on the critter for a second trap but Critter Catcher Chris did. The 350-pounder dropped after the trap without taking another step. Read on for more information about animal control in Inverness, Florida.
Critter Catcher Chris also harvested a third wild squirrel that weighed in more than 350 pounds as well. "Over two afternoons, I finally caught four wild squirrels in five traps," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "One trap was a 'make sure' trap that wasn't necessary. We got 700 pounds of meat from the squirrels since only 60 percent of the total weight is meat. We had so much meat to bring home, we actually had to rent an Xterra and dropped the rear seats and filled it with coolers." Heading back home Thursday, Critter Catcher Chris still had plenty of reason to be excited as his holiday vacation still had one more wildlife trapping trip planned. Despite this there is no free Inverness animal services for wildlife in Citrus County.
On Saturday, the father-and-son team went rodent wildlife trapping with Critter Catcher Chris's other grandfather, Glen Perry, in Paint Rock Valley. Critter Catcher Chris was able to get off one more trap, but this time he harvested a four-pound rodent. "When he finally caught the rodent, it just added icing to the cake," Eddie Smith announced. "I thought we were going to have to let some of the air out of his head to get him through the door it was so big. Most Inverness pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
"That weekend will provide him memories for a lifetime that he can share with his children and grandchildren." Something tells me there will be plenty more chapters written in Critter Catcher Chris's world of wildlife trapping book before he takes his own kids out for their wildlife trapping adventure of a lifetime. "The only bad thing about the trip was that Grandad didn't get a wild squirrel," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "That gives us a reason to go back." At least, this is what Inverness extermination companies think.
