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

How Hazardous Are Bats?
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 Lake County, Florida 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.

When you call pest control to get rid of bugs or other small rodents, baits, traps, and poisons might be the best solution. However, when you are seeking bat pest control, you won't find as many companies willing to kill them as a means of removal. Most companies will promote bat removal and exclusion, which is a process of removing the bats out of your home and putting them back in the wild. After the bats are out, the specialist will work to bat-proof your home so that they can't get back in.
Attics are warm and dry, which is perfect for bats. They love the arid attic spaces in people's homes for nesting and giving birth. If you hear scratching, gnawing, or squeaking coming from your attic, don't assume that it is birds and they are harmless. You could very well have a bat problem and not even know it. Bat pest control is designed to inspect your home, find the problem, and remove the bats with your safety and theirs in mind. Pay special attention to sounds that you hear or droppings that you see in your insulation or other attic areas, because this could be a dead giveaway to a bat infestation.
You should never take bat pest control into your own hands. It might seem simple enough to shoo out the bats and seal up your home, but without the proper experience and knowledge of bats and their habits, you could likely make the problem worse. Save yourself the hassle and call a bat control specialist who can help you get rid of the bat problems once and for all. It might be a little more expensive than you wanted, but it will definitely offer a much better solution than trying to take on bat removal by yourself.
