Serving Bassville Park, FL – The Lake County Florida Nuisance Animal Organization
Lake County, FL – Many of Bassville Park’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 Bassville Park 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

If you hear noise and rustle in your Lake County, Florida attic at night for sure you having deal with uninvited guests, such as raccoons. Usually mother raccoons are looking for warm and dry place to give birth to their offspring hence they find the attic very proper place. If you have this problem you should get rid of them immediately. There are the most common methods can be used to remove raccoons' nest.
One way that can be used in removing a raccoon nest is to place a radio that has been set to a talk radio station in the surrounding area of their nest. The sound of a human voice is very effective in driving raccoons away. The radio does not have to be necessarily loud, you could start with a low volume and if you do not succeed in flushing them out, you should try increasing the volume and leave the radio on day and night.
Once the raccoons are out of the chimney, you should install a strong steel chimney cap to discourage them from returning. You should also ensure that all the accesses to your home have been properly sealed and remove food from their environment. By adding a splash of ammonia to your trash cans, you will discourage the raccoons from scavenging for food that you have disposed in the trash cans. If the raccoons lack food they will relocate to a place where they can find food and water.

How to Clean Your Attic After You've Had Bats?
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 Lake County, Florida, 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!

Remove Bats That Are Living in Your Home
To clean the attic, I not only remove all of the waste by hand, I use special cleaners, including an enzyme-based cleaner that eliminates any biohazard organic waste from animals, including droppings and urine. I use the electric powered atomizer as shown in the below photo, which creates a fine mist that flows through the whole attic and gets every nook and cranny, for 100% coverage and cleanup. To protect myself against insulation fibers and animal biohazard, I wear a disposable Tyvek suit and I wear the respirator mask, as shown above. This fogging machine, also called an atomizer, sprays my cleaning solution in a fine mist that permeates the entire attic, and makes certain attic cleanup scenarios easy. In a case like this, in which the homeowner did not want total insulation replacement, the enzyme-based cleaner in the atomizer does a good job of breaking down and sanitizing the contaminated areas of the attic. If your attic has wildlife waste or animal poop, then this is one method that can kill harmful pathogens along with the odor. Homeowner's insurance will pay for attic cleanup and restoration in the case of raccoon damage, because of the potential health risks.
