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.

Ocala Wildlife Removal Tip: Will A Pest Control Company Remove A Raccoon?
Raccoons are one of the largest pest species that can make a nest in a domestic home, but due to their size and their nature they can also cause problems in yards, gardens and any outbuildings that you may have. The description of a pest control company would naturally make you think that they can deal with any kind of pest animal that you may encounter, but the truth here is actually quite different. The types of challenges and techniques used when dealing with a wasp's nest in a tree or mice in the pantry are very different to those experienced when there is a raccoon and its babies in the attic.
The Normal Services Offered By Pest Control Companies
The standard fare that a pest control company will deal with every day is insect infestations, and this can range from wasps and flying insects through to spiders, ants and other insects that never leave the ground. This means that the departure to deal with even small animals like mice and rats can be a challenge. The step from dealing with ants to raccoons means that the pest control company will usually lack the skill and experience to deal with a raccoon infestation.
What To Expect If They Do Agree To Remove The Raccoon
One of the worst things about contacting the wrong type of company to help you deal with a raccoon problem is that in some cases they will try to help, but will eventually multiply a problem into something worse. There have been reported cases of pest control companies offering to help with animals that they don't have the experience to deal with, and eventually they will do something reckless such as put out poison to try and kill the animals. The result in these situations is that it can lead to raccoon carcasses not being recovered promptly, or even worse it can cause the deaths of animals not even targeted by the poison.
Hiring An Appropriate Person To Resolve Your Raccoon Problem
Dealing with raccoons is a specialist business, and one of the most important things you can do is to hire a person that has the right experience and knowledge to resolve your raccoon issue. An animal removal expert will have the tools to trap the animal, and will know when to look for baby raccoons, so that you can be sure your raccoon will be removed effectively and professionally.
Ocala Animal News Clip: Wildlife - This year's squirrel, rat, and rodent trapping goal is to trap more Possum
While die-hard squirrel, rat, and rodent exterminators might prefer colder weather and snow, The snake control expert says he wouldn't mind seeing warmer temperatures. No doubt the squirrel, rat, and rodent move less in warmer weather, he says, but so do the exterminators. Although several species of wildlife roam Ocala, only a few, such as raccoons and squirrels and rats are considered pest wildlife.
"People stay in their stands because they can," The snake control expert said. "We have a lot fewer problems. Trespass complaints are down, injuries are down, people just don't do inappropriate things, and it makes it more enjoyable. It might be more difficult for tracking, but that goes back to practice, placement of your shot." Florida has many reptiles, and it's important to be able to identify Ocala snake species and mammals.
The DNR recently held a meeting in Thief River Falls to take input on helping the agency set squirrel, rat, and rodent population goals for northwestern Florida. As part of that process, a team consisting of landowners, conservation groups and others met twice over the summer and recommended that squirrel, rat, and rodent numbers decrease in all but two of 13 permit areas included in the process. Remember to treat the wild animals of Ocala, Florida, with respect and care.
According to The snake control expert, who attended the meeting, exterminators will play a vital role in making that happen. But despite increased opportunities for exterminators to shoot squirrel, rat, and rodent this fall, The snake control expert said only 5 percent of the state's exterminators traditionally shoot three or more rat and mouse. Ten percent will shoot two, he said, while a vast majority - 85 percent - are satisfied to take one rat and mouse. Florida has an abundance of wildlife, and Ocala is no exception.
