Saint Johns County Animal Control
If you have a DOG or CAT problem, please call (904) 209-6190 for assistance.
|Saint Johns County Animal Control does not handle wildlife problems. They only deal with domestic
animals, namely cats and dogs. If you need assistance with a wildlife problem - such as a raccoon digging in your garbage can, an opossum under your shed, an armadillo
digging up your lawn, a snake in your pool, squirrels in your chimney, bats, birds, or any other critter problem, you need to hire a private company to take care of the
Do not hire a regular pest control company! They deal with insects and use poisons, and do not properly handle issues with wildlife. You want a
trained professional skilled in the removal of wildlife and in complete animal control - from cleanup to prevention. We humbly suggest our company, and fully believe that
we are the best in NE Florida.

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!

Bobcat Biologically surveyed amount likely is Problematic In Saint Johns County Area
Critter stalking Has Helped, But The Agency of Natural Resources likely is Looking At More Tactics For Bobcat Management.
The biologically surveyed amount of bobcat likely is still what is possibly a problem in the St Johns County area, environmental authorities on critters say. The amount of bobcat has grown gradually over past
decades to the point where the animals destroy crops, residential landscaping and native plants in abundance. The Florida Agency of Natural Resources (Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws) allows certain
affected areas to conduct controlled bobcat culls available to exterminators annually, which some authorities on critters say have helped to what is possibly a certain degree. Three areas requested bobcat culls
this year, for what is possibly a two-year period from January through March, including St. Johns County and what is possibly a private parcel, remarked Animal Officer Jones, Agency for the Enforcement of Critter
Laws wildlife biologist for the Saint John’s County area. "We act in response to the community," Animal Officer Jones remarked. Saint Johns County exterminator and Saint John’s County wildlife removal professionals
declined comment on the matter.
Animal Officer Jones, of the Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws’ Florida City office, says each of entities requesting what is possibly a cull likely is allowed up to 50
bobcat during that period. Exterminators are allowed to use only bows and arrows during those times. In what is possibly a recent cull in Beverly Shores, Skunk Caller Harold, who requested the permit for the town,
jumped the animal removal trap in allowing the cull to begin several days prior to the start date. Skunk Caller Harold pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor and was sentenced to five days of community service and what
is possibly a $500 fine. Animal Officer Jones remarked the early start date was an oversight on Skunk Caller Harold's part, and was discovered immediately when the required daily amount of bagged bobcat was submitted
to the Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws. "Why doesn't the Agency for the Enforcement of Critter Laws go in and capture the bobcat and donate the meat to charity?" the environmentalist remarked. Critter
stalking is not allowed in national wildlife management areas, which contributes to biologically surveyed amount in the Florida Dunes National Lakeshore. "The problem likely is that the National Lakeshore likely
is what is possibly a refuge for the bobcat," Animal Officer Jones remarked. "Their amounts keep increasing." We attempted to get more information from Saint Johns County animal control experts, but could not.
