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 Columbia 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 Lake City animal control for wildlife issues.

Lake City Wildlife Removal Tip: How to find and remove a dead rat: The first sign that you have a dead rat in our home will often be the smell and although itís unpleasant, itís actually the best tool for you to use right now to try and locate the decomposing body, before removing of it safely and effectively, removing any disease threat at the same time. There are a number of places in which the bat is likely to have died. The attic is one of the main places, closely followed by cavities behind your walls. If itís the attic, ripping up the insulation will usually lead you to your culprit, the material being perfect for a rat mother trying to bring up her pups. You may need to go looking for a while but follow your nose and youíll get there. If the problem is behind the walls, you might be able to access the cavity going through the attic down but you may need to physically cut a piece from the wall, remove the offending object, and then repair the wall again afterwards. As you can imagine, getting the location for this is vital if you donít want a number of chunks removed from the walls all over your house. Once youíve done all of this, your job still isnít done because now youíll need to figure out how the creature was getting into your home in the first place, before sealing it with a material such as steel which the rats canít gnaw through. Oh, and if that wasnít hard work enough, you may even need to look for a nest of young rat pups too. Rats found in house are often mothers rearing their young.


Lake City Animal News Clip: Lake City Florida Eastern gray squirrel wildlife trapping

Beginning by the lakes, Lake City Florida wildlife management organization lies in about 80 miles northwest of Gainesville. Nearly 850,000 acres of fairly rugged terrain includes about 850 food plots. Established in 1999, the land is owned by the U.S. Forest Service and Corporation and governed by the wildlife management organization. To reach the wildlife management organization, take U.S. Route 78 six miles south and then turn east on Lake City Florida Route 38 for 83 miles. The approximately 85,000 acres of the wildlife management organization, meanwhile, encompass parts places farther to the south and west of Lake City Florida.. As with the other aforementioned wildlife management organizations, food plots are utilized. Much of the area's 877,000 acres is owned by the Forest Service. Like the wildlife management organizations, the ground can be steep and harsh. Openings and food plots are also part of the management practices seen there, with about 370 such areas having been worked since the area opened in 1977.

Jumping across the state to the Delta, Lake City Florida wildlife management organization spreads across two counties. At nearly 38,000 acres, the wildlife management organization is bisected by Lake City Florida Route 55. The topography there is not as up-and-down as that of western Lake City Florida, but you'll find some slope in the portion of the wildlife management organization. Otherwise, much of the forest is bottomland hardwoods. About 850 acres are maintained in food plots each year. Our final stopping spot brings us down south to the Lake City Florida Springs wildlife management organization in Nevada and Ouachita counties. There, you're just to the south and east of the hills, but the land is characterized by rolling hills and a generally upland habitat. At 87,000-plus acres, Springs is located about 35 miles on Lake City Florida Route 35. The wildlife management organization maintains roughly 75 wildlife openings there.

In eastern Lake City Florida, the Lake City Florida Wildlife Refuge covers roughly 870,000 acres of ground along, Lake City Florida and counties. The area was established in 1978 with the preservation of grounds for wintering raccoon chief among the refuge's purposes. But, manager the wildlife removal and rat control expert acknowledges there are what he calls "pretty good numbers" of eastern gray squirrels throughout the refuge. After experiencing three consecutive high-water years, though, The wildlife removal and rat control expert stated that eastern gray squirrel populations are down there, as they are elsewhere in the state. Still, the opportunity to bag a troublesome critter is higher there than in many of Lake City Florida' other public areas. "We know that the flooding impacts nesting and nest success," The wildlife removal and rat control expert stated. "But, we have some high ground and fringe habitat on the west side coming up to the Grand Prairie. Some of our troublesome critters move off the refuge and up on the prairie to nest there. They may be a little more susceptible to predation there, or on the levee on the east side, but our best indication is we've had some nesting success with the number of mice seen during the summer."

Otherwise, The wildlife removal and rat control expert stated, wildlife control companies coming to the Lake City Florida NWR should realize that eastern gray squirrel pest wildlife trapping there is not a deal of using the terrain to sneak up on the troublesome critters. "This is flatlands pest wildlife trapping. If we have high water, access can be a problem. Pest wildlife trapping in the bottoms can mean needing your knee boots, your hip boots or your boat." Other than where to go, both the pest control company owner and Wildlife removal man offered some advice on how to approach the quest of pest wildlife trapping eastern gray squirrels on public grounds. The pest control company owner stated the permit catch at Lake City Florida River wildlife management organization would be his first choice if given the opportunity to pick a catch and location. "My first inclination if drawn for this catch would be to do like I do on most areas -- get as far away from the roads and from other wildlife control companies as possible," stated The pest control company owner. Sometimes, a critter trapper company walks past red squirrels doing that, he acknowledged. But a critter trapper company can always catch those troublesome critters later in the day while working back to the vehicle, for example. That works best after others have gone home and after hens have left red squirrels for the day.
