If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Apopka 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 Apopka, and I recommend the following:
Wildout Animal Removal
Cell Phone: 407-232-9348
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Orange County Animal Services: 407-836-3111
Wildout Animal Removal 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 Wildout Animal Removal 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 407-232-9348
to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
- Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
- Fully Florida and Orange County licensed and insured
- Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
- Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Wildout Animal Removal is a full-service Apopka wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Apopka pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildout Animal 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.
Apopka 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 Apopka raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildout Animal 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 Apopka 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 Apopka 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 Apopka 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 Apopka pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Apopka 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 Apopka trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Apopka 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. Wildout Animal Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildout Animal 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.

. 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
. Wildout Animal Removal
also provides dead animal removal in Apopka. 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 Apopka 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 Apopka. 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 407-836-3111.
Orange County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Apopka Wildlife Tip #1:Will your homeowner's insurance pay for mouse damage?
Mice can cost home owners not only through to their houses and yards, but also
their health, peace of mind, and dignity. Whether the damage is feces and droppings contaminating your home, or a destroyed box of wedding photos it is a huge loss to you. Other mice might destroy the expensive wiring, drywall, or piping in your home with their non-stop chewing. Mice are also able to destroy your beautiful gardens and costly landscaping in just a few days. Mice can also chew through water pipes, electrical conduit, and septic lines. Their dropping will destroy expensive insulation, ruin wood, as well as rot your floorboards, siding, and dry wall.
Mouse holes to the outside can let in the elements like cold, wind, and rain causing serious damage to many of your homes elements.
All this destruction is not only costly but can be a real mental and physical hardship for your family. Most homeowners carry comprehensive insurance on their homes and property. These policies cover damages caused by winds, rains, and burglars, but most likely they will not help you with damage from a family of mice. If a bird crashes through your home and destroys the furniture, or a tree falls through your roof and takes out the TV you are probably covered. But, when a manic feral mouse destroys your favorite sheets and trashes your yard, or a mouse goes on a shopping spree in your garage, and eats the family albums or nests in the Christmas decorations you will probably be covering those out of pocket. The good news is that if any serious structural damage occurs because of the mouse, it is most likely covered by your insurance.
While damage to your home may be covered, keep in mind that most the damages suffered during a mouse infestation are NOT going to be covered by any insurance policy. It is also true that the massive damage often caused by any wild animal incursions are also excluded from your standard homeowner's policy. You can visit with your agent and ask to make amendments to your current policies, and this might be a prudent move I you live in an area that is known for its
problems with wildlife and rodents. You should take the time to review your policy BEFORE you have a problem with critters. Prevention is the best policy when dealing with any animal problem. Always maintain your yard and house. Try to clear out anything that would serve as nesting areas for
mice and other creatures. Remove standing water and easily available food sources like pet food bowls, unsecured trash cans, and bird feeders. If you have suffered damages because of mice, and feel they should be covered, document the damage and meet with your agent ASAP.
Apopka 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.
You can always call Wildout Animal Removal, any time of day, at 407-232-9348, for a price quote for Apopka wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Apopka, FL.
