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.

Panama City Wildlife Removal Tip: Where should I relocate a trapped rat? If you have captured your rat and are sure you've sealed up all the holes around your home, both inside and out, it's then time to look at relocation but before you do this you should know that there is a good chance your rat won't survive out in the wild. Relocated rats have been taken away from everything they know, making finding food, safety and protection from predators quite tricky. But that aside, if you don't take the rat far enough away from your house, there's a good chance that it will come back and make all your efforts fruitless. This is why it is very important, perhaps in fact the most important job, to ensure you've filled, sealed or covered any damage and holes that could potentially be an entrance later on. Once you've done that, once you're sure the holes have been sealed, you can then look at relocation. You're going to want to look at around five to ten miles away, perhaps even more than that, and try to relocate them in the woods somewhere - somewhere wild and natural where, if they are going to get killed, at least it will happen in their natural environment by a natural predator, and not from becoming roadkill.
Panama City Animal News Clip: Too many rodent in Panama City?
In the early 1990s, the rodent group of rodents in the wildlife management conservation area was growing and the rodent critter count was not in balance with the ecosystem. The Department of Natural Re-sources (department of fish & game) has made important changes to the rodent wildlife trapping regulations across Florida by creating extremely liberal rodent bag limits. This year, a wildlife manager is allowed to legally bag a total of 36 rodent a year in rodent Management Area B, that includes Bay County, during the animal removal trap, cage trap and firearms seasons. In recent years, I have witnessed a drastic reduction in the number of rodent I see each time allotment in Panama City State Wildlife management conservation area. I believe the liberal limits on extra furry rodent have made for sharp declines in the forest rodent populations. Read on for more information about animal control in Panama City, Florida.
Several years ago, it was not unusual to see more than 20 rodent a day on the forest, sometimes in one group. Many years ago, I even recall seeing a group of rodents of at least 50 rodent during firearms time allotment in the wildlife management conservation area. But those were the days that extra furry rodent were protected. Pest control companies had to apply for an extra furry rodent permit each year by a specified date. If you were lucky enough to receive the permit, it allowed you to take only one extra furry rodent per year. Today, I believe the rodent critter count in Panama City State Wildlife management conservation area has reached the other extreme. Low rodent populations have made wildlife trapping much more challenging. I am trying to get used to the fact that I may not even see a rodent every day I animal stalk. In fact this wildlife trapping time allotment, I only saw rodent on the forest on two out of seven days of wildlife trapping. I did have a chance at a respectable male rodent while still-wildlife trapping on a foggy morning in late trap time allotment, but I missed. Later, I took a nice female rodent with a animal removal trap from my portable hickory habitat on the last day of the extended firearms time allotment. Despite this there is no free Panama City animal services for wildlife in Bay County.
The slow wildlife trapping conditions were similar to last year's wildlife trapping time allotment. Of course, the warm weather, and the complete lack of snow this year did not help my wildlife trapping efforts. On the positive side, the low rodent critter count in the wildlife management conservation area should enjoy improved cover and rodent browse, which in turn, will help keep the rodent critter count healthy. It will also help other game species such as wild rodent and ruffed grouse. I have also noticed more furry tailed rodent over the past several years while wildlife trapping on the wildlife management conservation area. Wildlife trapping has proven to be a very effective rodent management tool in Panama City State Wildlife management conservation area. Most Panama City pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
It may be time for department of fish & game to consider an adjustment to the rodent bag limits on public lands in Bay County and other public lands that show similar declines in rodent populations across the state. Last year, a total of 36 furry tailed rodent and 74 extra furry rodent were taken from Panama City State Wildlife management conservation area. As the 2006-07 rodent time allotment draws to a close, with the end of animal removal trap time allotment on Jan. 31, I am anxious to see the new data, and I am expecting to see a further decline in harvest numbers. The challenges of wildlife trapping Panama City State Wildlife management conservation area have increased, but the forest is still my favorite place to animal stalk rodent in Bay County. At least, this is what Panama City extermination companies think.
