If you have a problem with wildlife in your Altamonte Springs 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 Altamonte Springs, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Lake County Animal Services: (407) 578-4344
A+ Animal Solutions specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Florida also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and A+ Animal Solutions is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 386-302-1146 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
A+ Animal Solutions is a full-service Altamonte Springs wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Altamonte Springs pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. A+ Animal Solutions 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.
Altamonte Springs 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 Altamonte Springs raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at A+ Animal Solutions. 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 Altamonte Springs 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 Altamonte Springs 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 Altamonte Springs 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 Altamonte Springs pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Altamonte Springs 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 Altamonte Springs trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Altamonte Springs 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. A+ Animal Solutions does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by A+ Animal Solutions. 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. A+ Animal Solutions also provides dead animal removal in Altamonte Springs. 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 Altamonte Springs 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 Altamonte Springs. And remember, we are a private business, not Lake County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (407) 578-4344. Lake 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.
Altamonte Springs Wildlife Tip #1:
Snake Trapping: How To Trap A Snake
These carnivorous reptiles could be easily differentiated from legless lizards as snakes do not have eye lids or the external ears. These creatures are adaptive to the environment hence found around the world except Antarctica. Fast even on sand, snakes are good climbers and also able to swim in cross paths with you but the issue arises when this acquaintance becomes a daily routine and the unwanted guest in your yard or garden. However a snake compared to rodents do not cause damage to your yard and if it's a non-venomous snake there is nothing to fear.
As per their food habits they are beneficial in a way by feeding on mice, rats, frogs, insects, etc. however these creatures carry a to-be avoided reputation and deadly encounter with humans are common. Usually if you do not know about them it's hard to find out which ones are dangerous and which ones are not. Keeping snakes away is a better option anytime. People do hire professionals or buy themselves repellants to remove them from the yard. Snakes are peace lovers and look for cold, dense and a place where it could be left alone. So to discourage them keep the yard clean and avoid the rodents entry so that snakes do not come in search of food, keep the grass low and no piled up stones or wood logs. Still after trying all these if they have entered your property then trapping is another option.
Trapping a snake becomes easy if you choose the right way of trapping it. It will be difficult to identify weather the snake is poisonous or not for a common person. Trapping a snake by yourself has reported many snake attacks also. There are lethal and non-lethal traps available in the market. Baits are used to lure the snakes into the trap however instead of live bait the trap producers use scent which attracts the snake. One of the very commonly used traps is the glue trap. This trap has glue at the bottom, it is covered completely with plastic casing, once the snake is lured inside the trap because of the scent, it gets stick to the glue. Then you could easily carry the box at the relocation place and put some vegetable oil to release the glue from the snake and the snake will move out without any further support.
This trapping method is pretty safe and as it is completely covered, so there is no risk of getting hurt.
Altamonte Springs 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.
