Leesburg FL Wildlife Control

Serving Leesburg, FL – The Lake County Florida Nuisance Animal Organization

wildlife animal removal

Lake County, FL – Many of Leesburg’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 Leesburg 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.

Want to know more about the ABC's of what this area under discussion has to propose to every human being who is willing to do things for themselves? During an inspection of the Lake County, Florida structure needing bat eviction I can determine the size of the colony and the best time of the year to remove the bats. During certain times of the year bats form nursery colonies. Depending on your geographical area the bats can only be removed when the young bats are able to fly. We like to use a one-way door or referred to as a valve.

These unidirectional escapes lets the bats escape not allowing the bats back in. This type of bat control eviction is approved by the organization Bat Conservation International. The utmost critical thing in bat removal from a residence is attention to all the little construction gaps. When closing all construction gaps, anything larger than an a quarter inch should be sealed. You have to seal the entire home to foil bats from getting back in. You will go as far as sealing any fault or construction crack. Ill need to exclude vents to keep bats out, let's start by closing off louver vents, attic vents, and ridge vents if bats can breach them using 1/4 inch screen. These can be painted to match, but I have found it blends in nicely left unpainted.

Inspect chimneys, bricks and mortar may be loose forming gaps. Look for gaps around where the chimney goes through soffit, carefully seal gaps and install a one-way door, if a bat way in is there. Ridge venting systems are feasible bat entrances. When looking at the ridge vent closely you'll usually find the plastic ridge vents deform leaving gaps, I've seen where varmints have chewed a gap in the vent. I will do away with the previous roof vent system and replace it. Primarily, you lay down 1/4 inch hardware cloth this keeps the bats, mice and squirrels from getting through. We will install a one-way bat door here also if the bats were using this area. Finally you'll finish the attic vent with a vent system referred to as Cobra vent, and then finish it with top cap shingles. We try to color match any calking, tin work and exclusion work to make it merge in as if we have not had to fix the construction defects. We use paintable caulking, the silicon based calks will tinge over time.

I build my own one-way doors. After ten years of bat control, I came up with an easy effective one-way valve for bat removal. You can purchase commercially produced bat cones but I personally think they are too short and have no airflow at the base where it is attached to the structure. These one-way doors are left on for about two weeks, to let bats leave. Then I can remove the one-way door and then block the entrance. After the bats have exited through the one-way doors the bats will try for several nights to get back in, by looking for another entrance, this is why sealing every possible entrance needs to be done. This is how to evict bats.Find out more by reading our other articles on this topic and other subjects we have written related to it.

Baby Raccoon Removal & Rescue


humane pest control

Raccoons have no manners! They're slobs and the one staring at me didn't seem to really care about the niceties of eating. Bits of dry cat food were soaking up water from where it had been sloshed out of the water bowl. The bag of food I'd laid on a table was now torn open and about 10 pounds of cat chow was strewn across the floor.

This particular raccoon had come in through the pet door into the garage and was happily eating leftovers from my cat Spike's dinner bowl. He obviously had no fear of me, because he kept eating as I walked over to the work bench. Even though he appeared to half tamed, I was trying to keep a little distance between me and the raccoon.

Spike has a bed in the garage, in the house and on the deck. Whenever and wherever the mood strikes him to take a nap, he's not very far from a comfortable pillow. He has become adjusted to seeing raccoons and possums enter his garage at all hours of the night. Tonight he was sleeping on the bed that used to be my work bench before he took it over. He was now peering over the side of the cardboard box that was his bed, at the raccoon that was making a mess of his eating area.

I may have to try trapping the animal, but that didn't work out very well last year. I used a gage-like trap that is supposed to close the entry way into the cage when the animal tries to eat the canned cat food in the back of the cage. It's very humane. Of the five raccoons we had last year, none were caught. I did catch Spike...twice. I've never accused him of being smart!

If you have a 'possum get into your house, the best thing to do is to put a can of cat food just outside the door and let the animal go to the food. Then slam the door shut! They may scare you by hissing and snarling, but that's just their defensive mechanism. It's sort of scary when they bare their fifty teeth, but more than likely if you back away, they'll never hurt you. One good thing about confrontations with a 'possum is that they hardly ever get rabies.

I really hope they'll leave soon. Spike and I would like to get our garage back.

Lake County, Florida bat control specialists are all over the place. Home remedies and self-made plans for bat removal are rarely effective, which is why these companies are so easy to find. They understand the seriousness of getting rid of bats, and they know that people cannot mediate the situation on their own. Therefore, they will come into your home, inspect the problem, and work with you to devise a solution that best suits your particular needs.

Probably the best thing about bat control is that it is different for every person, and these removal experts understand that. There is no one uniform solution to take care of bat problems, and you can't just give everyone the same exact plan. Your problem, the number of bats that you have, and the number of entry points or the locations of them will greatly impact the removal of those bats. If you've already tried to solve the problem on your own by sealing up the gaps and cracks that you could find, a removal company will likely need to find new places to let the bats out.

Bat control specialists will usually devise a humane plan to let the bats leave your home, but then put little devices into place that work like one way doors. That way, the bats can leave to get food, but when they return, they aren't able to get in anymore. They'll go off to find a new home, and after a few days or a week, the holes will all be sealed for good. Before the problem is considered solved, though, another inspection will be done to make sure all of the bats are gone. Then, exclusion plans will begin, which generally involves sealing cracks and holes and making your home impenetrable to uninvited guests.

The final step of a bat control specialist will be to clean up the guano that is left behind. If not cleaned up, bat guano can be toxic to your family even just by breathing the air in your home. That's why professional cleanup is recommended for all bat guano problems. Proper chemicals and cleaning processes will ensure that all bacteria are eliminated, leaving your home safer and healthier so that your family isn't at risk. This is what you can expect from a bat control service, and you should call them as soon as you realize that you have bat problems to have the situation resolved quickly and effectively.
