If you have a problem with wildlife in your Bronson 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 Bronson, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Levy County Animal Services: (352) 486-5138
Pro Wildlife Removal Services Alachua County 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

property. Call 352-433-0995 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Pro Wildlife Removal Services Alachua County is a full-service Bronson wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Bronson pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Pro Wildlife Removal Services Alachua County 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.
Bronson 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 Bronson raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Pro Wildlife Removal Services Alachua County. 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 Bronson 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 Bronson 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 Bronson 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 Bronson pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Bronson 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 Bronson trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Bronson 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. Pro Wildlife Removal Services Alachua County does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Pro Wildlife Removal Services Alachua County. 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. Pro Wildlife Removal Services Alachua County also provides dead animal removal in Bronson. 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 Bronson 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 Bronson. And remember, we are a private business, not Levy County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (352) 486-5138. Levy 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.
Bronson Wildlife Tip #1:
WHY DO SNAKES BITE?
Snakes are pretty high up in the food chain, and this means they are hunter by nature. Depending on their size, they can eat about anything from a baby mouse to fair sized zebra. Snakes use their tongues to find their prey, and then finish them off with one swift bite. If a snake is venomous, it uses its sharp, retractable fangs to inject the venom into the prey's bloodstream, can cause almost instant death to small animals. If the snake is a constrictor, it will wrap its powerful body around its victim and slowly tighten itself around the animal until it has suffocated to death. Both of these sound like very gruesome ways to go, but the good news is, snakes only attack when they are hunting for food... or if they feel threatened.
Snakes are very independent and shy creatures. They normally hang out under or on rocks, branches or inside a hollow tree. They mainly hunt during the night, and use the daylight to catch some sun to warm up their bodies, as they cannot regulate their own body temperatures due to being cold blooded. This means that during the day they are less active, and like to be left alone. Snakes don't generally live in groups, and tend to avoid bigger animals and humans.
If a snake is nearing its shedding period or if a female snake is guarding a nest, its sense of alertness will be heightened and it may attack more readily. If you happen to come across a snake while hiking or camping, you should be aware that you are the one invading its territory, and the snake may not take kindly to that.
Most snakes will give warning signs before attacking, and reading these signs correctly can prevent disaster. Rattlesnakes shake the rattle on their tales as a sign to back off, but all snakes have warning stances, such as hissing, rearing their head and coiling their bodies. Most snake bites occur when people without experience in handling wildlife, try to catch or kill them. Snake fangs can sometimes be strong enough to pierce thick denim, so unless you have experience in working with snakes, it is never a good idea to try to catch or kill one yourself, leave it to the professionals.
If a snake is hunting, then it will probably attack much faster than if it is merely warning you away. If you come face to face with a snake that is feeling threatened, stay calm and walk slowly away. Any sudden movements may make the snake feel it is being attacked and it will definitely lunge and attack to protect itself or its nest. When hiking, always have a first aid kit on hand, and read up on the possible wildlife you may encounter in that specific area.
Bronson 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.
