If you have a problem with wildlife in your Jacksonville Beach 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 Jacksonville Beach, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Duval County Animal Services: (904) 247-6167
Professional Wildlife and Rodent 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 Professional Wildlife and Rodent 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 904-677-5812 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:
Professional Wildlife and Rodent Removal is a full-service Jacksonville Beach wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Jacksonville Beach pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Professional Wildlife and Rodent 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.
Jacksonville Beach 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 Jacksonville Beach raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Professional Wildlife and Rodent 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 Jacksonville Beach 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 Jacksonville Beach 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 Jacksonville Beach 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 Jacksonville Beach pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Jacksonville Beach 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 Jacksonville Beach trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Jacksonville Beach 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. Professional Wildlife and Rodent Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Professional Wildlife and Rodent 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. Professional Wildlife and Rodent Removal also provides dead animal removal in Jacksonville Beach. 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 Jacksonville Beach 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 Jacksonville Beach. And remember, we are a private business, not Duval County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (904) 247-6167. Duval 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.
Jacksonville Beach Wildlife Tip #1:
How Do I Clean House Mouse Feces Out Of My Attic?
Mouse does not come alone; they come with a group of friends and start living in a happy colony within human habitats. These creatures keep on looking for some comfortable spaces to create nests inside. The terrible fact is that they not just contaminate your food with their frequent attacks rather at the same time they also make your house prone to several diseases. Most of these creatures carry harmful disease viruses that can get transferred to the humans or pets around. Hence, it is important to take immediate decision to get rid of the mouse as soon as possible.
There are so many reasons to clean mouse feces fast; some of these are listed below:
1. Mouse droppings often come with several illnesses, and they can get transferred to humans in the area. They can also infect your pets with serious medical health issues.
2. These droppings release a terrible odor that cannot be tolerated by human beings.
3. When this waste stays at one place for a long time, it starts degrading drywall as well as wooden surfaces leading to the growth of mold.
4. Studies reveal that mouse leaves pheromones with their urine so that other mice can also follow the same track to access food source and shelter at your premises. Hence, it is important to take fast decision to clean your home otherwise it may attract more rodents to your premises.
There is no point in tolerating mice in your house; once you come to know about their presence, it is important to take immediate steps to get rid of them. At the same time, you need to take careful steps to clean up the feces behind. Below we have highlighted a few tips and tricks to clean the mice feces from your attic:
Although this method is not applicable to all homes; but in case if you are lucky enough and can use vacuum in your attic, it can help you to clean the area efficiently. Note that vacuum is effective on flat areas like ducts and floors that are designed without insulation. In case if you have a low power vacuum, it can be used to clean the area covered with insulation as well.
Remove soiled insulation:
In case if the insulation is soiled with droppings and urine, it cannot be cleaned using simple methods. In such cases, it is important to remove the whole insulation and throw it away using a sealed bag. Prefer to install the fresh insulation to avoid chances of disease.
It is not possible to get rid of feces completely with the above two methods; hence, at the third stage, you need to use fogging. You can buy a fogging machine from the market and start cleaning the area affected by mice feces. Do not breath openly during the cleaning process; it is better to cover the face with a filter mask so that you cannot inhale the harmful particles inside your body.
Jacksonville Beach 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.
