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.

Tarpon Springs Wildlife Removal Tip: About a fox: appearance, biology, lifecycle, habitat, diet, behavior
Fox is one of the wild animals that invade people houses. They are beautiful creatures. Their fur molts during spring and new one grow progressively. They may seem harmless especially when they are taking care of their young. However, they can attack you or your pets anytime. Let us talk about the fox.
What you should know about foxes
What do these animals look like? What is their lifestyle? What do they feed on? Let us find out.
Most foxes are medium sized. Most of them have red fur that is fairly distributed throughout its body. Their long bushy tails makes them even more adorable. They have flattened skull, upright triangular ears and a snout that appears to be slightly upturned.
Foxes are related to domestic dogs. They both belong to family carnidae. The average weight of a fox is about 5 -8kg with the male being heavier than the female. Their tails are bushy and long (about 350mm). Foxes are athletic. They can run quite fast and jump over fences. They also have tiny craws that enable them climb fences and trees.
Below is a lifecycle of a fox in the northern hemisphere. In the southern hemisphere, the periods are shifted to about six months.
1. Foxes mate during winter. The male remain on heat for the whole season but the female estrus last only for 3 -4 days. The gestation period of a female fox takes about 53days. The female fox picks a den and the male follows it there.
2. During spring, the female fox gives birth. It can give birth to about five cubs. At this stage, the young has small sense of smell and sight. They do not have fur too. They wholly depend on their mother for warmth. The male feed the female during this period as she cannot get out.
3. After about one month, the mother reduces the time that she spends with her cubs. They start moving out of the den for exploration and they start eating solid foods. The adult foxes avail food for them.
4. During summer, the mother stops lactating. She leaves the den completely. The adult seizes to bring food too and so, the young foxes need to get out and feed themselves.
5. The autumn is the dispersal period. The family starts to break up and the young adults leave to start their own families and the cycle starts all over again.
Foxes are not very picky about their habitats, they can live under sheds, unfinished buildings, in the porch among other place. The place just need to be warm , dark and away from human and other predators.
Foxes are carnivorous. They are however described as opportunistic scavengers. They feed on native animals, birds, rabbits, house mice among others. They also eat forest fruits such blackberry. Insects may constitute their diet too.
Foxes are solitude animals. However, some of them make families and mark their territories with urine, feces or even anal scent. The male and female pair for life too.
Foxes are beautiful creatures with unique lifestyles and features. Even though they can pose danger to us we should give them a chance to live.
