Lake Mack-Forest Hills FL Wildlife Control

Serving Lake Mack-Forest Hills, FL – The Lake County Florida Nuisance Animal Organization

Lake County, FL – Many of Lake Mack-Forest Hills’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 Lake Mack-Forest Hills Florida’s wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Many people have attempted their own forms of bat removal. Most have failed. Those who had the knowledge and experience of working with bats might have proven more successful because they knew what they were doing. However, anyone who attempts to undertake bat removal or control on their own without the proper training or knowledge is putting themselves and their family in jeopardy by doing so. It isn't easy to get rid of bats, and most of the home remedies and do-it-yourself solutions will be ineffective at best.

You could spend weeks of your time and a lot of your money on sealing your home, buying bat control devices, and attempting to fix your own bat problems. However, you won't likely experience good results in the end, because many different things can go wrong. If you get too close to the bats or disturb them too much, you run the risk of being bitten. Furthermore, if you try to seal them out of your home without a thorough inspection to make sure that they are out, you could very easily seal them in, which would be very bad. Bat removal is something that is much better handled by a professional company.

Bat removal involves someone coming into your home, assessing the situation, and then developing a plan of attack. They will generally go through and do a thorough inspection, at which point they will determine how big your bat problem is and what bat removal techniques are best. Generally, the easiest and most effective way to get rid of bats is with the use of bat control devices that work like one-way doors. Bats will be able to leave your home through these devices, but when they return, they won't be able to get back in. This will send them packing and looking for a new home.

When the professionals are done with bat removal in your home, they will inspect it once again to make sure all the bats are gone. Then, they will seal up any remaining cracks or gaps and remove the control devices. Once everything is finished, they will go through and clean up the bat guano with disinfectant or other solutions to kill all of the germs and bacteria to keep your family healthy. After all, bat guano is almost as dangerous as the bats themselves. This professional bat removal process is going to be much more effective than anything that you could do on your own, and will offer you a chance to have your home safe and healthy once again.

If you have a raccoon that is frequenting your garbage, you need to look into getting raccoon traps to relocate the pest far away from your home. There are a few different no-kill raccoon traps that are great for catching raccoons safely.

The best way to avoid trouble with raccoons is to be sure that your house, garbage cans, and other parts of the property are raccoon-proof. You can also use various repellents, as well, to keep them away. However, you may already have a problem and need to take care of it.

As most people live somewhat close to their neighbor's, it is best to use a live trap. This way, if you were to catch your neighbor's beloved cat instead, you could simply release it and try again the next day. More than likely, explaining to your neighbor how their cat died will not be good for your neighborly relationship. Live traps can be bought at nearly every hardware or gardening store.

When you have both baited and set the trap, be sure to put some water in there for the raccoon, in case you cannot immediately release the animal. Now that you know how to operate humane raccoon traps, you can begin to catch and release the raccoons that have been plaguing you.

Raccoons are nocturnal animals. They are usually black in color, and have a black tail with rings. They weigh around 10 to 20 pounds. They usually reside in forests, in barns, chimneys or even your attic. If you live near a forest, it is likely that a raccoon will one day knock over your trashcan looking a food source. They are opportunistic feeders, and so can be a real nuisance. Raccoons are omnivorous, so they feed on vegetables and poultry. There are various methods that will help you get rid of raccoons:

Fencing

Fencing will help exclude the raccoons from your property to do this, set up a two-wire electric fence that is connected to a DC battery. Also make sure that you install a temporary chimney cap. Since raccoons are nocturnal, they will not be able to gain access to your chimney when you are asleep. Make sure that you use a trashcan with a tight lid. Raccoons are usually attracted by the smell of your trash. Purchase a metal or plastic trashcans, which is difficult to open. You can also put a rock on top of the trashcan to make sure that the raccoon does not knock it over. Alternatively, you could put the garbage in containers sealed with bungee cords. Make sure you double bag foods that have intense smell such as meat, fish, etc. Most pests have an acute sense of smell, and they will be attracted to your trash. You can also spray the garbage with a repellent to disguise the smell of meat.

Trapping

This is the least preferred method. The most common is attracting the raccoon with food and trapping it in a cage or a box. However, some provinces have very strong regulations on trapping. If the province does not allow this, you could be prosecuted for violating animal rights!

It is also very dangerous to deal with raccoons face to face. They could be carrying germs, roundworms or rabies. You can even get leptospirosis from the raccoon feces. Another problem with this is that they are wild animals. A raccoon could decide to be defensive and hurt you.

Pest Control

This is the safest method. The Pest Control staff will deal with the vermin more effectively and without legal repercussion.
