Serving Lady Lake, FL – The Lake County Florida Nuisance Animal Organization
Lake County, FL – Many of Lady Lake’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 Lady Lake 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
Animal Removal in Lady Lake Lake County Florida –
Bat Control Services
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.

Remove Bats That Are Living in Your Home
With the young bats well able to fly, it seems that bats are showing up everywhere! They have been found in attics and chimneys in Lake County, Florida on a regular basis.
With the abundant source of water in the area such as the Missouri and Kansas rivers and the numerous lakes, it creates a virtual bonanza of insects on the bat's menu.
Combine this food supply with plenty of homes and commercial buildings for roosting and that makes for the perfect situation if you are a bat!
What do bats look for when selecting a roosting site?
One important thing is it must be out of the weather. The inside of an attic or cave makes for some of the best locations that are out of the wind and rain. Air flow is equally important. Bats love to select areas where the air flows across their bodies keeping them cool. The inside of an attic can reach 130 degrees and bats could not live for long in this environment without the air flow.
Professional removal is the best solution to your bat pest control problem. Trying to resolve this problem by yourself often makes it worse. Bats carry rabies and should not be handled. If you should find one outside the home or building that is laying on the ground, do not pick it up! Each year people are bitten because they picked up a bat they thought was dead. This could be a sign that the bat is rabid.

Steps to Prevent Squirrel Entry in Crawl Space, Basement or Attic
Trapping is a good way for kids to explore the outdoors, learn about animals, their habits and habitats. For some people the desire to trap never fades as years pass. For other the desire to trap doesn't come until later in life.
The following is in essence the basics of trapping. This will cover the most popular species trappers' target. The basics of trapping will also cover methods experiences trappers use to trap them.
Beavers and Muskrats:
Two of the most popular species trappers pursue are beavers and muskrats. Experienced trappers tend to trap beavers and muskrats in the winter, but for a beginner; trapping these species may be easier to trap in the spring and fall. The most commonly used trap for beaver is the 330 conibear. Check your local state laws; sometimes the law requires this trap to be fully submerged in water.
Beaver set, trappingYou should stake the trap in areas were beavers like to hang out. Such as dams, bank dens, beaver lodges, culverts, and/or canals between two bodies of water. Beavers prefer to be in slack water, which is what beavers create when they build dams. Slack water, which used to be known as 'the stand of the tide', is a short period in a body of tidal water when the water is completely unstressed, and therefore no movement either way in the tidal stream.
A good way to find places to trap beaver is to contact the county highway or land department. Many times they are having problems with beavers and are very happy to have a trapper take care of the problem for them.
You want to select a spot on near the water's edge where you see mink tracks and the trails they have been using. Make your trap bed and place trap in it and cover it with leaves and grasses to make it look natural and blend in with the surrounding area. A tip from the experts, place sticks on both side and the back of the trap bed to guide the mink to step on the trap.
Raccoons can be found almost anywhere in North America. Raccoons are a very commonly trapped furbearer. Raccoons can be found mostly in wooded areas and near water. Raccoons are a very curious creature, and because of this they can be trapped in almost any set. The most common trap to use for a beginner is the 220 conibear. Raccoons are very predictable creatures they will use the same trails along streams, ditches, rivers, and ponds. Set a 220 conibear along these trails for best results.
Above is just the basic a new trapper should know. Never stop educating yourself about trapping and trapping techniques. The best form of education is to find a mentor that can pass down years of wisdom to the younger generation.
