Serving Orange Bend, FL – The Lake County Florida Nuisance Animal Organization
Lake County, FL – Many of Orange Bend’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 Orange Bend 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

What Can I Do to Keep Squirrels out of the Attic?
Is It Safe to Handle a Skunk with Bare Hands?
How to remove skunks from your Lake County, Florida backyard - Removing skunks from the backyard means modifying your property so that skunks don't find it appealing. This process can be long and involved if you have an extensive yard, and some people find that their current landscaping is a part of the problem. Remember that skunks are drawn to your house because of food or shelter. There are no other reasons why wild animals like to invade the spaces of people. Either you're offering too much in the way of edible items, or there are lots of buildings and areas for skunks to make dens. Either way, you need to take the appropriate steps to remedy the situation. First, if you have a lot of buildings on your property, make sure they are secured around the base. This might mean installing a metal barrier around wooden walls or placing cinderblocks at the bottom of modular sheds. If the skunk can't get inside, it won't try for too long. The next step will be to adjust what you're doing about edible debris. A vegetable garden may not be the skunk's favorite food, but it will go in there to eat if there isn't a fence. The same can be said for fruit trees around the home. Fallen apples might not seem like something a skunk would eat routinely, but this is a free food item that won't be passed up. Keep your fruit trees picked up to prevent unwanted wildlife.

Do Skunks Fight Each Other?
There are lots of deterrents advertised on the internet and in stores that supposedly will tell you how to get rid of raccoons. Very few of them if any actually work. For example moth balls do not work , nor does the urine of dogs, wolves or other animals. In fact all that they do is smell up your house even more than the raccoons do. We tried them and know from experience.
So how do you get rid of raccoons? Do not buy all of the things that are advertised on the internet or even in the hardware stores. In fact, traps are not even worthwhile investing in. We will explain some of the reasons why and also how to get rid of raccoons.
Once the raccoons are gone, be very careful repairing raccoon damage and entering attic spaces. Breathing the feces or raccoon scat can cause organ damage and death. In the dry air of your attic, these feces break down, become dust like and when disturbed will float in the air for you to breath. Hire professionals to clean up the attic if they have been there for some time. You may have to replace the insulation and the air vents over the soffits if there is a lot of damage.

You removed the animals from the Lake County, Florida attic, but are you finished yet? Nuisance wildlife in your attic can create problems many homeowners never think of. These animals can carry ectoparasites, which after the wildlife host is evicted, may move inside the home looking for a new host—YOU! Bat bugs, mites, ticks and fleas are just some of the ectoparasites you need to be concerned about. Mice in the attic, bats in the attic or various other vistors are notorious for bringing these pests in. Ask our Wildlife Management Specialists to inspect your attic and treat for these critters, after your problem species is removed.
