If you have a problem with wildlife in your Lake Wales 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 Lake Wales, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Polk County Animal Services: (863) 324-5227

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. 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:
Wildout Animal Removal is a full-service Lake Wales wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Lake Wales 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.
Lake Wales 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 Lake Wales 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 Lake Wales 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 Lake Wales 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 Lake Wales 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 Lake Wales pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Lake Wales 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 Lake Wales trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Lake Wales 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. 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. Wildout Animal Removal also provides dead animal removal in Lake Wales. 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 Lake Wales 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 Lake Wales. And remember, we are a private business, not Polk County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (863) 324-5227. Polk 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.
Lake Wales Wildlife Tip #1:
How to find and remove a dead pigeon?
If you live in an environment where pigeons roam around, there is a very high chance that you will be faced with the need to find and remove a dead pigeon. This could be very challenging especially if you have not done so before. This article will explain:
Pigeons have the ability to sneak into different parts of buildings through different channels. The channels could include damaged or missing tiles, ceiling space, loft, chimneys, or heating and ventilation shafts. They could subsequently stay within the building till they die and the house owner might not be aware until they start perceiving the very unpleasant odor. This is when it will dawn on them that there is a dead pigeon somewhere and they need to get it removed.
How to Find and Remove Dead Pigeons
Try to trace the area where the smell is coming from by looking for the part of the house where the smell is the strongest. Search around that area and you are most likely to find the dead bird. You might need a broom, parker, wastebasket and protective clothing including gloves and nose masks to remove the bird.
What to Do After Removing the Dead Pigeons
After removing the dead pigeons, it is important for you to disinfect the area. This is to avoid bacteria and worms thriving in the area. This could lead to a disease breakout.
Preventing Further Issues with Dead Pigeon
After removing the dead pigeon, it is important to check your house and fix every area that pigeon could use to access your house. You have the option of inviting a professional company to carry out this whole process of removing the pigeon and fixing avenues that pigeons could use to access your property.
