Lake County, FL – Many of Mascotte’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 Mascotte 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

Tactics to Keep Skunks Away
Dealing with urban animals is an inconvenience that many home owners in the northern US and southern Canada face. Animals such as raccoons and squirrels often find their way in homes to get away from the elements and as a result cause damage and disturbances.
Raccoons normally opt to take shelter in the attic mainly because all their requirements are available in the attic. They find shelter as well as safety from their predators. They find their food sources in garbage cans or pet food tins. Since Raccoons are pests and cause much disturbance and noise, it is necessary to get rid of them quickly.
They might die, decompose and cause heavy odour. So by flooding a light into the attic or producing loud noise, like from a radio, will cause disturbance to the raccoons.The mother raccoon will soon find a safer place elsewhere to raise her pups.
Some times raccoon repellents.especially naphthalene or moth balls are used. There are even a predator urine which causes a bad odour is also used. But these are not too effective as the mother raccoon might choose to bear the odour in order to raise her pups in a safe place.
If you find a raccoon in your attic it is highly recommended to call a professional trapper.

Diet: What Do Squirrels Eat?
You removed the animals from the Lake County, Florida attic, but are you finished yet? Nuisance wildlife in your attic can create problems many homeowners never think of. These animals can carry ectoparasites, which after the wildlife host is evicted, may move inside the home looking for a new host—YOU! Bat bugs, mites, ticks and fleas are just some of the ectoparasites you need to be concerned about. Mice in the attic, bats in the attic or various other vistors are notorious for bringing these pests in. Ask our Wildlife Management Specialists to inspect your attic and treat for these critters, after your problem species is removed.
