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.

Miami Wildlife Removal Tip: How To Keep Squirrels Out Of Your House
Once a pest animal gets into your house, the level of damage and the expense of resolving the problem can be quite significant, so if you do have squirrels that are active around your property, you can take a few steps to stop them from getting in. Not all of these measures will be necessary or relevant depending on your own situation, but they can provide an idea of how the squirrels get in and what they look for in a potential habitat. Where possible, taking these measures can help to prevent infestations from happening.
Trimming Back Any Overhanging Trees
One of the first things that you can do is to see if there are any trees near your house, and because squirrels are such expert climbers they can often scamper along very small branches to get on to the roof of a property. If this is something that can be seen around your property, trim back those trees that have long overhanging branches, and if there are trees very close to your house, it may even be worth cutting trees that you cannot trim back enough.
Changing The Surroundings In Your Yard Or Garden
Squirrels are naturally good at climbing and usually make their home in the trees, but if you do have a lot of fruit trees or shrubbery in your garden, you may want to reduce the density of these trees, as they can often be attractive to squirrels. Look at the space between the walls of the property and the surrounding trees and shrubbery, and try to leave a clear open space as this can often deter squirrels from scampering towards your house.
Soffit And Vent Maintenance
When it comes to getting in to attics and wall cavities, squirrels are opportunists, and they will naturally find any holes or damaged vents, and have even been known to gnaw their way through damaged wooden soffits to get in. Make sure that you do monitor these on a fairly regular basis, and try to repair these promptly so that any squirrels that do try to get in do not find an easy access point.
Removing Food Sources
The best way of removing squirrels is not to have anything that will attract them to the area around your house, and not having bird feeders or other plants that can be a food source is another useful approach. While you may not want to remove fruit trees, there are also squirrel guards that you can install on the trunk of the tree that will stop them from getting to the fruit on the tree.
Miami Animal News Clip: Search is on for all-professional wildlife trapping club in Miami
Years ago Crawfish Oil commercials featured the "Stinky Bait Man," an all-knowing expert who could find an answer to every trapping bait question. I'm not a genius but I am constantly called upon by pest control operators who have outdoors-related queries. I probably average a half-dozen calls or e-mails per week from pest control operators who say they hate to bother but know of no one else to call. I do my best to find an answer for everyone who writes or calls. The queries range from the simple to bizarre. I've been asked how to make venison jerky, how to clean frogs, how to get squirrels out of attics, how to rid ponds of beavers, how to train cats not to eat birds, how to trap possums and once I was even asked by a future bride I did not know to write a speech to her future rodent wildlife trapping pest control professional for the reception dinner (I did). Read on for more information about animal control in Miami, Florida.
Last week I was sent an e-mail by a co-worker that posed what at first seemed to be a query I had answered a million times before. Did I know of any beneficial rodent wildlife trapping clubs someone could join? A friend of his, a single animal control operator, was looking for a place to go rodent wildlife trapping. I made a couple of calls and asked around. The reactions were uncomfortable, to say the least. You would have thought a drug-dealing nephew had called a married couple with kids and asked if he could sleep on the couch for a year and make a lot of long-distance calls. "Nothing against opossum trappers," every answer began. Despite this there is no free Miami animal services for wildlife in Miami-Dade County.
I understood the most obvious concern of how well a single animal control operator spending the weekend at the club would go over with club members' opossum trappers back home. I also understood the concern of sleeping arrangements of, say, six or eight guys piling into rows of bunk beds in one little room. I also understood the concerns of bathroom and shower arrangements. How do you not come out looking like a sexist pig in this one? Most pest control companies have no desire to expose their opossum trappers, girlfriends or any other civilized professionals they know to their secret lives at the wildlife trapping camp. I've seen wildlife trapping clubs where the bathrooms make a service station bathroom look like the men's room at the Waldorf-Astoria. I've seen garden hoses run through the bathroom window for a showerhead with cold water only. Most Miami pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
I've been to wildlife trapping clubs when pest control companies would occasionally bring their opossum trappers. Those pest control companies typically have a travel trailer or mobile home separate from the wildlife trapping club so as not to expose their opossum trappers to their loud, drinking, belching, scratching friends (the pest control professional, of course, tells his life partner that he never behaves the way his friends do). It didn't take many inquiries about this e-mail before I realized I might have encountered the first query from a reader in 20 years for which I couldn't find an answer. Are there any all-professional wildlife trapping clubs out there? Are there any wildlife trapping clubs out there that accept professional members? Am I wrong in assuming that a professional wildlife manager doesn't care if a club is a falling-down dump and will get in there and play poker and belch with the best of them? At least, this is what Miami extermination companies think.
