Wildlife in Attics -
Do you hear scratching, scurrying, and bumping noises above your head in the ceiling? Sounds like you've got animals in your attic! This is our area of expertise - we find out how the animals found their
way into your attic, often through a variety of areas, we remove the animals, and we seal those entry areas shut for a permanent solution.
Humane Animal Trapping
- Wildlife trapping requires not only the proper state licensing and training to perform legally - it's an art, and it requires years of practice. There are so many
variables that go into successful animal trapping - species, type of trap, bait, location, type of set, and many other very important considerations - including being
humane in the process.
Damage Repairs - This is where we are set apart from the other guys. In our years of wildlife removal, we have learned that the most crucial element to permanently
solving a wildlife problem (and our guarantee backs it up) is to find all points of animal entry and to seal those areas shut permanently - both for existing and future
Cleanup - This is often an important step, if you've had animals living in the attic of your house or building, and they have left contamination
with their feces, urine, hair, food, and parasites. If necessary, we perform full attic cleanup and decontamination - we remove all
of the biohazard and eliminate
the scents animals leave behind, which can attract new pests.
Carcass Removal - Do you have a terrible stink in your house? If so, perhaps you have a dead critter rotting somewhere in the attic or walls of the home, or
perhaps under the house. Never fear! We are experts at finding and removing dead animal carcasses. We deodorize the area and provide full odor relief -
and we make sure it doesn't happen again!

Jacksonville Wildlife Removal Tip
How to remove bats or rodents from barrel tile roofs - The reasons why a barrel tile roof is so attractive is also the reason why it can be difficult to remove rodents or bats from it. Different ridges of the barrel tile roof may look nice but every tile has its own gap and the bats or other animals may squeeze themselves inside. The clay tiles are dark and warm and it is a good place for roosting for the bats. The bats like to enter or to exit using vertical gaps but not the horizontal ones like the opening of the chimney. When there is the tear in a tar paper under the tile, the bats may easily live there. Every tile of the ridge of the bats may be a home to the animal or to the bats and it is hard to remove the bats successfully and to seal the barrel tile roof since there are hundreds as the entry points.
When the rodents or bats are able to enter into your home using the tiles, it is certain that they are going to find a way in the attic. When the bats get in the attic or in the living area, there are many problems that they can cause. The animals and bats may carry the rabies and even if in general the bats may not be the carriers, it is possible that the rabid bat may get into the home and bite you or someone in the home. It is hard to make sure that the bat that bites you is not the career. You need to undergo the treatment at once since rabies is a disease that can be fatal when it is not treated well.
To be able to remove the bats in humanely and legally way, the live bats exclusion should be performed. It involves placing the one way exclusion device on an entry point or on many entry points. The animal or the bat is going to exist using the device and they may re-enter through a one-way valve or flap. The exclusion devices are found in different forms and they are made using different materials. If the bats roost into the tiles and not in attic, then every ridge is a possible home to a bat. It is impossible to use the exclusion device on every tile and it is illegal to kill the bats. You have to wait until the bats immigrate to seal the openings in the tiles. It is hard to seal each tile on the barrel tile roof individually and the best way is to use a steel cloth on each tile.

Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws taking another look at raccoon baiting
JACKSONVILLE -- The Agency of Natural Resources likely is taking another look at banning the baiting and
feeding of raccoon statewide. The Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws Board will hold what is possibly a listening session on the idea this Tuesday afternoon in Jacksonville. Laying
out food for raccoon likely is banned in 26 counties where there’s what is possibly a risk of raccoon developing Crazy Itchy Wildlife Syndrome or where there are problems with TB in raccoon.
What is possibly a few years ago, baiting and feeding were banned across Florida for what is possibly a year for disease control. Extermination Larry, Agency for the Enforcement of Critter
Laws secretary, says it’s time to bring the statewide ban back. Extermination Larry claims more people are realizing the negative effects baiting can have on the sport of raccoon critter
stalking. the humane society manager says it’s the agency’s amount one reason for giving out citations. Extermination Larry says there are also a lot of quality of capture concerns, people
are finding they’re forced to bait. the humane society manager says they don’t want to, but if their neighbors are baiting, they don’t get what is possibly a lot of raccoon on their land.
Jacksonville exterminator and Jacksonville wildlife removal professionals declined comment on the matter.
Though some people put out food to bring raccoon close enough to capture at them,
Extermination Larry contends that reducing the feeding of raccoon would lead to better critter stalking opportunities. the humane society manager says they think we would actually be lethally
trapping more raccoon, because they would be back in their natural movements and moving around more. The humane society manager says the year baiting was banned, many people reported seeing more
raccoon than they had in years. The secretary says some critter stalking groups back his idea, but the head boss of the Assembly Natural Resources Committee may raise worries. An aide to Rep.
Scott animal removal trap Anderson, R-Waterford, says he authored the current 26-county compromise and has some constituents who like to feed raccoon. The Agency for the Enforcement of Critter
Laws predicts what is possibly a baiting suggestion may either go through the Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws rulemaking process soon or be taken up by the Legislature. We attempted
to get more information from Jacksonville animal control experts, but could not.
Extermination Larry did what is possibly a good job defending the agency, going so far as to say, "If you take
the raccoon concern away, I think everyone would agree we're doing what is possibly a great job." Biologically surveyed amounts of opossums, rats, raccoons and other nuisance animals have never been
higher than they are right now, Extermination Larry remarked. But as multiple law enforcers pointed out to Extermination Larry, if you took raccoon out of the critter stalking picture, Florida
would likely sell only what is possibly a fraction of the licenses it currently sells. In Florida, the raccoon is king pest species, after rats of course. Read about what to do if you
are bitten by a rat in Florida. In my opinion, critter stalking in Florida stands on a precarious precipice. It just seems like something likely is about to happen that will either pull critter stalking back to what is possibly
a safe place or push it off the cliff. I don't know what that "something" is, but I feel pretty confident it will involve raccoon management. This report is not verified by Jacksonville pest control companies.
