If you have a problem with wildlife in your Alafaya home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Florida wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Florida and Alafaya, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Orange County Animal Services: 407-340-1914

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Affordable Wildlife Removal is a full-service Alafaya wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Alafaya pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Affordable Wildlife Removal performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Alafaya wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Florida to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know. Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Florida law. We offer Alafaya raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Affordable Wildlife Removal. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Alafaya squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed. Never, ever use poison! Most Alafaya exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Alafaya rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Florida is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Alafaya pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Alafaya bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Alafaya trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Alafaya wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Affordable Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Affordable Wildlife Removal. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc. Read about how to get rid of opossums. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks. Affordable Wildlife Removal also provides dead animal removal in Alafaya. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Alafaya snake removal - most of the snakes in Florida are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Alafaya. And remember, we are a private business, not Orange County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 407-340-1914. Orange County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Alafaya Wildlife Tip #1:
What equipment is needed to trap a skunk
Are you worrying about the presence of the skunk in your home? The best way to handle the problem with the skunks in your home is to use a trap and then get rid of the skunks. Skunk trapping may be hard, that is to get a cage. Skunks eat different kinds of food. They hardship can be avoided by means of spraying them or emitting an awful smell. If you will use an open cage trap, then the skunk may spray through. Because of this, some would like to use a solid walled spray proof trap, which can be bought in the market. But, a wildlife trapper must not have a problem with the spraying and the smell, because they are equipped with the right methods without hurting these creatures.
Approaching the animal with cautiousness and then knowing the signs to look for is very important. If the animal shows agitation, if it will stamp off its paws, but if it will be given a chance, then you must get out of the way to prevent it from emitting the smell. On the other hand, it must never come to that point. This animal is non-alarming and it is also non-threatening and you will not have any problem with it if it will not be threatened. But what bait to use if trapping will be imposed? Mallows will work best for them as a bait, they cannot lure the stray dogs and cats, however, if the cats are not your problem, then you can place a cat food, regardless if it is wet or dry.
There are some tips to trap the skunk. A lot of people must have heard the word skunk and then flinch it slightly through the door. This is because they are an animal that usually lives nearby and around the humans and unavoidably some interaction may occur in most often the form of the stinky dog. This is just because the skunks are not persuaded to the waste that they will leave with them, it is just an easy meal and there is about nothing that is more persuading to the skunks and to the most wildlife, which is an easy meal.
The issue is that the skunks can be a pest, since it uses its smell to defend itself. With this, it is easy to understand that if you have caught them, you can release it to the wild where it will be happier. Catching them is not a simple task, you must be careful because it may be risky for you and for the skunk as well. You should place the trap in a place that is just nearby the skunks. If you have seen them in a place, then you must try to place it as close to the area as much as possible. You should cover the trap to make the skunk feels safer in the den.
Alafaya Wildlife Tip #2:
Florida Wildlife Information:
Florida State bird: Northern mockingbird
State mammal: Florida panther, manatee, dolphin
State reptile: Loggerhead sea turtle
State fish: Florida largemouth bass, Atlantic sailfish
State insect: Zebra longwing
Florida's climate is hot and damp, making it a prime place for reptiles, amphibians, and other semi-aquatic animals. There are a good number of raccoons, rabbits, squirrels, and rats, and it seems these common pest creatures plague homeowners in almost every state. In addition to the common property visitors, Florida also has four venomous snake species: rattlesnakes, cottonmouths, coral snakes, and copperheads. Because of how warm the state is, snakes are often out sunning themselves pool side. All reptiles are drawn to water, and because of the constant warm temperatures, many homes in Florida have pools.
Snakes aren't the only creatures invading yards. Armadillos in Florida are capable of coming into a yard and digging a burrow in one night. While they rarely, if ever, invade the home itself, the damage these creatures can cause to a yard is impressive. If you've got to have one or the other, however, most people would take the armadillo over the snakes.
While almost tropical in its climate, Florida is home to a massive expanse of swamp land known as The Everglades National Park. This huge plot of land is home to alligators, turtles, lizards, raccoons, rabbits, and snakes. The red tailed boa now makes the park its home, though the snake is not a native species of North America. This has caused some concern with the local wildlife authorities, as populations of smaller mammals have been steadily declining due to predation by the large serpents. It is expected that alligators and Florida panthers will eventually become prey for the invading species.
Land-loving predators that are sometimes nuisances are primarily black bears. These large, intimidating animals have learned how easy it is to pick through human garbage and to raid campsites. It only takes a bear one or two successful raids before it becomes problematic. Coyotes are also a common nuisance predator in the state. Like the bears, coyotes become opportunistic, feeding off of livestock, pets, and human refuse.
The population of Florida is growing annually, and it is a popular state for retirees. Eventually, more and more people will displace the animals of Florida, causing clashes. A good example of this is with the alligator population, which lives in many of the waterways, regardless of how close to human civilization. The alligators aren't fearful, so they hold their ground and usually must be removed by professionals.
