  • We Can Solve It!
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 Lee 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 Pine Island animal control for wildlife issues.

Pine Island Wildlife Removal Tip: How rodents communicate using pheromones

Just like humans, rodents too are able to communicate to one another but using pheromones. A pheromone is a chemical excretion that is used to send information and provide details pertaining situational life from one rodent to another. Signals can only exchanged through this media between rodents of the same species; otherwise it will no longer be communication but predation. For instance, a mouse's pheromone may portray sickness to another mouse, but to a rat that is a trail to its location before being feasted on. Apart from being species specific, pheromones may elicit a change in behaviour of the receiver species.

There are four types of pheromones;

1. Modular pheromones
They change the functions of the body in an animal.
2. Primer pheromones
They are associated with the reproductive system as they can raise or lower hormonal levels; hence may change the oestrous cycle or puberty in females. These pheromones take a longer time to elicit the changes.
3. Releaser pheromones
They are used to sexually attract male and females to their counterparts respectively.
4. Signaller pheromones
These are mostly used by young ones to recognize their mothers. Once they get to sense their mother, even before they could open their eyes, baby rodents will start to make a bond with their mother. They will also use these pheromones to recognize their siblings and identify intruders or strangers.

So how exactly do these pheromones work in rodents?

Signals travel from the main olfactory epithelium to the main olfactory bulb to the olfactory cortex and the brain before going to the hypothalamus when received. As for pheromones, they are received by the vomeronasal organ, which is located in their nose, and move to the olfactory epithelium then to the olfactory bulb before travelling to the amygdale and finally to the hypothalamus. Once in the hypothalamus, a counter current reaction is elicited which is then sent to the body organs concerned for response.

Pheromones can be used to pass a wide range of information, apart from the most common and obvious reason known for, sexuality. They include an alert when danger approaches or when a predator is close by, as a way of marking territories, establishing bonds such as between a mother and her babies, siblings or between individuals sharing a den. They can also be used to alert a response in case of an emergency, may indicate a poor or rich diet of the sender animal accordingly, if the rodent is sick or healthy. Rodents will use pheromones to call others for attention for gathering food, or moving out or if one or a certain group is separating; they also emit pheromones to keep others away or to signal death.
