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.

Pasco County Wildlife Removal Tip: An analysis of inhumane glue traps for rats: One of the newest 'tools' homeowners have at their disposal for fighting back against a rat infestation is a glue trap - a long, thin shaped trap covered in a sticky, glue-like substance. These traps are designed to be placed along walls on the floor, along pipes, cupboard-tops, etc. - anywhere a rat might naturally run, and catch it dead in its tracks. The rats paws get stuck to the glue on the trap and it can't go anywhere. The good news is you've caught your rat. The bad news is you now have a rat stuck to a glue trap. What are you meant to do next? You'll need to come up with a plan to kill this animal yourself humanely. How are you going to do that? You should have just used a rat trap - a spring trap - one that is designed to kill instantly. All you've done is caused this rat a great deal of pain. It'll try to chew its own leg off if it thinks that'll help it escape, and once it does that, it'll either bleed out or be unable to protect itself, becoming prey to another bigger animal, an animal that then could enter your home to try and find more rats that you're feeding it up on a plate. Essentially what you've done by using a glue trap is cause yourself an even bigger problem. If you don't check the trap in time, the animal might starve to death there. Or injure itself so badly, it ends up killing itself. Either way, it's a really long and painful way to die, and not the way you should try to deal with your rat problem. My advice? Leave the inhumane glue traps for rats well alone.
Pasco County Animal News Clip: Forget the rodent-wildlife trapping license - call this duo
And you thought you had a problem with those pesky rodent leaping in front of your automobile and causing havoc on the roadways. You should spend a few minutes talking with Critter Catcher Chris of Pasco County. Her family's story begins with a plan cooked up by daughter Turtle Hugger Tabatha of Pasco County., who started out early one morning on a holiday trip to Florida. It was going to be a big surprise. She'd pop in on Mom, unannounced, and spend a week. Her husband, Peter the Panda, would drive up a few days later, and it would be a great, relaxing time for everybody. Except that Turtle Hugger Tabatha smashed into a rodent about 15 miles after she left home. "She called and told us what she was planning and what had happened," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "Her automobile had $3,600 worth of damage. She hit it on the right front passenger side. They couldn't drive it. So we came up with this brilliant idea to meet halfway in Florida City. They'd drive up in a different vehicle and we'd meet them." It seemed like a beneficial idea, anyway. Read on for more information about animal control in Pasco County, Florida.
Turtle Hugger Tabatha and Peter the Panda headed north. Critter Catcher Chris and her niece, Alexa, headed south and east from Pasco County. They met in Florida City. Peter the Panda headed back to Florida. Critter Catcher Chris pointed her van west, and the three women headed toward Pasco County. All went well until they were on U.S. Highway 20, about 50 miles east of town. Where, of course, they hit a rodent. "It came out of the median," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "We never saw it coming. It wiped out the radiator and everything on the right front of the van. It caused about $4,600 worth of damage. We couldn't drive it." Turtle Hugger Tabatha hit her rodent about 4:30 in the morning. Critter Catcher Chris plowed into hers about 6:30 that night. "We didn't know whether to laugh or cry," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "So we laughed. I mean, it was so ridiculous, what else could we do but laugh?" Despite this there is no free Pasco County animal services for wildlife in Pasco County.
They called Turtle Hugger Tabatha's mother-in-law in Pasco County, who took them to Florida Falls. Her father, who lives in Marcus, got them the rest of the way to Pasco County the following day. Miraculously, there were no automobile-rodent collisions the rest of the way. "It's beyond strange," Critter Catcher Chris announced. "Everybody in (Pasco County) has been talking about it. The truth is, it's a big joke in town and we're still laughing, too. Not that we're happy about it. Those rodent caused a lot of damage. I always liked rodent, but I say: Make it open time allotment all the time on those things. I don't care if I ever see another one." Most Pasco County pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
But all was not lost, as they say. Turtle Hugger Tabatha had a nice visit with her family in Florida and made it home to Florida without incident. And there was another upside to this fiasco. The rodent Turtle Hugger Tabatha hit was a 10-pound male rodent, something most pest control companies would consider to be a fine trophy. "Turtle Hugger Tabatha and her husband are both rodent pest control companies," announced Critter Catcher Chris. "And she hit this thing on the last day of the Florida rodent time allotment. They wanted the furry tails, so they took it home, which was beneficial. She hadn't gotten a rodent when she was out wildlife trapping." So she bagged a 10-pounder. It was with her automobile, sure. But she has her trophy furry tails. They probably would look great on the hood of her automobile. At least, this is what Pasco County extermination companies think.
