Lake County, FL – Many of Sorrento’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 Sorrento Florida’s wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.
As we’ve mentioned, it is extremely important to take additional steps beyond simply capturing and removing critters and wildlife from your home. At the absolute minimum, we recommend allowing us to find the entry points that animals use to gain access. Our licensed wildlife technicians here at The Lake County Florida Nuisance Animal Organization are fully trained in proper techniques to find, fix and completely seal any and all entry points. We’ll also do a full exterior scan of your home to point out any areas that could result in future wildlife problems. Our technicians are able to recommend prevention strategies that will ensure there are no available entry ways for animals to take advantage of in the future.
We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Lake county animal services for assistance. Lake County Animal Services or Humane Society: (352) 343-9688

How Do You Find the Areas Where Bats Are Getting In?
How-to Guide: How to Catch Squirrels Methods to Catch Them Safely
Raccoons pose a problem to residents of urban areas in north America. They have adapted perfectly in the urban setting and are now considered to be pests. Removing such an animal has become popular since these mammals find shelter near or inside our houses.
Attics and chimneys are the best place for these critters to make a house out of, while it will be overturning garbage cans, taking pet food from kitchens and fruits from trees, making a ruckus with household animals (e.g. dogs, cats), a raccoon could always be transmitting rabies. Due to all the above reasons, home owners generally don't like having them around. People who are unfortunate enough to have raccoons in their homes need to take some necessary steps to get rid of them without angering animal rights advocates.
There are many ways to enforce raccoon removal. It is up to you to decide which one is the best. Be sure to select a method that is somewhat humane. Their removal doesn't necessarily mean that the animals must be harmed.

We all enjoy seeing wildlife up close, but some animals shouldn't be touched with the proverbial ten foot pole. Take the raccoon for instance. It's the state animal in Tennessee, looks cute and cuddly, but raccoons can cause many problems for home and business owners.
Besides the fact that raccoons are a rabies vector species (carrier of the rabies virus), raccoons can also carry canine distemper. Both distemper and rabies have similar symptoms, including staggered gait when walking, crusting around the eyes, disorientation and a lack of fear of humans. Any mammal, be it raccoon, opossum, fox, etc. exhibiting these characteristics should be avoided, and a wildlife expert should be contacted for safe removal of the animal.
Over the years, our company has removed hundreds of raccoons from attics and crawlspaces, including 13 raccoons from one attic and crawlspace of an iconic, late, great country music artist near Nashville. The smell in these areas can be unbelievable!
The bottom line is if you have raccoons visiting your property, or you suspect you have a raccoon living in your attic or crawlspace, call an expert for immediate removal!
