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.

Smyrna Beach Wildlife Removal Tip: About flying squirrel: appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior
Most of us have no idea about the existence of flying squirrels. However, these creatures also known as pteromyni do exist. Unlike birds however, these creatures do not fly.
About flying squirrel
Let us familiarize ourselves with this creature. I will be answering some of the questions that you might be asking yourself already. Like how it looks like, where it lives, what it feed on among other questions.
Flying squirrels have distinctive features. Most of us may mistake it for a bat. To avoid that this is what you should look for in the flying squirrel.
• They have long tails - unlike the bats, flying squirrels have long tails that they use for stability during flight.
• They have patagium - this is a parachute and its wrist to ankle. It helps the animal to glide.
• They have longer limb bones and shorter hands than the normal squirrel. This helps the animal to steer and exert control while flying.
Let us know understand the biology of flying squirrels. Study shows that flying squirrels originated 18 - 20 years ago. They belong to:
o Life cycle
The average lifecycle of a flying squirrel is six years. However, if kept in a zoo, a flying squirrel can live up to fifteen years. Their mortality rate is too high due to high number of predators like the tree snakes, raccoons, bobcats among others.
Their mating season ranges from February to March. Only the female takes care of the kids. The young are born hairless and their sex can easily be determined. They usually do not have many senses. After about two and a half months, they are fully developed and ready to learn and adapt to their new environment.
Flying squirrels live in fallen trees. They look for large decaying trees and find cleaves or woodpeckers' holes and they make their living in them. They may build shaggy looking nests in high trees too especially where two or more branches are meeting. They may even live in human made boxes provided they are located in forested areas.
Most flying squirrels feed on nuts, fungi, fruits and bird eggs. Most of them have specialized diets and tends to take advantage of non-protein foods.
Flying squirrels are beautiful creatures with most features like those of the ordinary squirrels. They are however adapted in a few ways to aid their gliding motion.
