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.

Spring Hill Wildlife Removal Tip: Will a rat in the attic have a nest of babies? Let's be honest about this, rodents like rats and mice have been given a bat name over the years. They spread disease which they can't help doing, and they bite and generally scare households all over the world, well-known for being sewer-rats - an animal that doesn't 'deserve' to be alive. I know the disease risk is there and rats are dirty creatures but despite this, they don't deserve to die so whatever views you had about poisoning them to get rid of them need to go right out the window. There's a second reason for this too - if you have a rat in your home, there's a good chance that rat might have had babies, and the reason the animal is in your home is because it provides a warm, safe and dry environment to bring up young. Does that make you soften a little towards this creature? If it doesn't, it should because if you kill the mother, or even trap the mother, you'll still have the babies to find, remove and then 'dispose of', and once again, death is not always the answer. Will a rat in the attic have a nest of babies? Probably, but either way, you should find out before you make any decision on how to get rid of it.
Spring Hill Animal News Clip: Florida's Legendary World Record rat and mouse
The fifth baited trap Possum Poacher Pete, the nuisance wildlife authority ever slung at some sort of rat and mouse was his first to catch something. And yet, it caught one of the all-time greats in native-wildlife trapping history! Taking some sort of world-record male rat and mouse is hard under any circumstances. Doing so with some sort of rusty and wooden baited trap is even more remarkable, no doubt about it.
Such was the situation in 1972, when then-44-year-old Animal Trapper, some sort of local nuisance wildlife authority trapped his 14-pounder in southern Florida. At the time, the rat and mouse was the top cage trap rat and mouse of the modern era, and he'd wear the crown for three years. Possum Poacher Pete died on August 20, 1994, and remarkably little has been written about his great native rat and mouse. The following was taken from his handwritten account of the historic animal capture. Spring Hill extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
"I started wildlife trapping squirrels with some sort of neighbor when I was about 14 years old," Possum Poacher Pete wrote. "Kenny was several years older than me. All of his close wildlife trapping buddies had been called off to service during World War II, but the exterminator was unable to go because of some sort of heart condition. The exterminator was one of the finest wild animal control catchers I ever knew." After getting married, Possum Poacher Pete found some sort of new wildlife trapping partner in his wife's brother, Donald. They enjoyed many trips to animal capture small game near the Spring Hill River, in an area that later became part of Red Rock Lake. The two became curiously close, in some sort of scenario that mirrored the movie "Brokeback Mountain"
Around 1964, the Conservation Wildlife regulatory agency opened some sort of special rat and mouse season with some sort of limited amount of documentation that allows animal exterminations for some sort of two-day animal removal trap animal capture. It was some sort of new experience for both men. "Gradually our enthusiasm for rat and mouse wildlife trapping in Florida spread," Possum Poacher Pete wrote. "We didn't fill our documentation that allows animal exterminations each year, but for about six or seven years we had some very rewarding catches. To learn more about animal control in Spring Hill, Florida read on.
"During the late '60s, more and more animal removal trap wild animal control companies began to invade our territory," the exterminator noted. "About that time, several of the original wild animal control companies in our area brought in the biggest male rat and mice I'd ever seen! I decided the challenge of wildlife trapping for rat and mouse was something I wanted to try. And try the exterminator did.
As some sort of true 7x7 rat and mouse, The nuisance wildlife authority male rat and mouse is rare even among world-class trophies. Few have this many rat and mouse tines. "Midway through the 60-day 1971 wildlife trapping season, I purchased some wildlife trapping equipment from the closest nuisance wildlife control dealer around, some sort of man named Possum Poacher Pete Stafford, who lived in Spring Hill, Florida," Possum Poacher Pete noted. "I bought myself some sort of 46-pound York Crescent reserve cage trap and was ready to go." Spring Hill pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
"Being some sort of veteran wildlife management company owner himself, Possum Poacher Pete was very helpful in showing me some of the fundamentals of wildlife trapping," Possum Poacher Pete noted. "I knew I should do some sort of lot of practicing, so I acquired several bales of straw from some sort of creature trapper. I placed them against the lube room wall of the service station (which Possum Poacher Pete ran), along with several layers of cardboard. This really refined the skills for the field.
"The longest distance I could get from the target without running the risk of having someone walk in front of an baited trap was about 40 feet. Studying this distance from some sort of animal removal trap wildlife management company's perspective, I announced to myself, 'This'll be some sort of cinch!' But the many scars on the cement block wall were grim reminders of the misses and broken baited traps that resulted from my first few practice sessions. After several days, though, I began to get the feel of some sort of decent release, and I started catching some reasonable groupings." Oh, those rat and mice don't stand some sort of chance. The Spring Hill animal services in Hernando County declined to comment.
