If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Coral 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 Coral Springs, and I recommend the following:
Cell Phone: 561-826-6475
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Broward County Animal Services: 954-359-1313
Centurian Wildlife 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 Centurian Wildlife 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 561-826-6475
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 Broward 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
Centurian Wildlife is a full-service Coral Springs wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Coral Springs pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Centurian Wildlife 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.
Coral 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 Coral Springs raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Centurian Wildlife. 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 Coral 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 Coral 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 Coral 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 Coral Springs pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Coral 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 Coral Springs trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Coral 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. Centurian Wildlife does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Centurian Wildlife. 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
. Centurian Wildlife
also provides dead animal removal in Coral 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 Coral 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 Coral Springs. And remember, we are a private business, not Broward County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 954-359-1313.
Broward County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Coral Springs Wildlife Tip #1:
What kind of bait is used for catching a raccoon - When it comes to the raccoon, you have as many choices for bait as there are isles in the grocery store. This animal is an omnivore and a scavenger. It will eat just about anything. That being said, when you use certain bait in a raccoon trap, you run the risk of luring in other animals like skunks, opossums, and feral (or domestic) cats. The last thing you want to do is explain to your neighbor why his or her cat is trapped in your yard. According to leading professionals, marshmallows are actually the best bait for a raccoon. These mammals are drawn to items that resemble eggs, and the marshmallow will provide a tasty treat not easily devoured in one bite. Though using good bait is helpful, this is only a small part of the successful trapping process. Even more important than bait is trap size, location, and set up. If you have a trap that is too far from the raccoon's path of travel or set up on uneven ground, you probably won't see a raccoon inside any time soon.
Coral Springs Wildlife Tip #2:
Why do opossums go under houses? - If we asked you to make a list of all the things that you loved about your house, what would it include? Would it be things like the good schools nearby for your kids to have a good education in, or the local parks that your kids love to play in? Perhaps it is the trees outside that make the entire neighborhood look so pretty, or the fact that there was a grocery store just around the corner that was open late night. There are probably a hundred and one reasons why you chose to live in the house that you live in, and when you think about it logically, these same reasons could be the answer to the question - why do opossums go under houses? The opossum is looking for exactly the same features from a home as you are - they want a steady supply of food. They may not have a seven-eleven just around the corner but what they do have is the cat or dog food that you leave out, the garbage can that you throw your leftovers in, and also the kitchen when you so happily leave the door open in the warmer weather. On top of food, an opossum will want the perfect place to raise their young - it needs to be in a place that predators and other threats cannot easily get to, a place that is both warm in the colder weather, yet cool in the hotter weather, that is nicely protected from the rain and snow, and also allows the animal somewhere comfortable for him or her to rest their weary heads. These are all things that your home, and to be more precise, the areas under your houses have to offer so essentially, when you look at your own reasons for wanting to move in, you pretty much answer your own question!

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 Centurian Wildlife, any time of day, at 561-826-6475, for a price quote for Coral Springs wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Coral Springs, FL.
