Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Lehigh Acres, FL

Lehigh Acres Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Lehigh Acres 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 Lehigh Acres, and I recommend the following:

Nuisance Wildlife Rangers
Cell Phone: 239-829-5374

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Lee County Animal Services: 239-533-7387



Nuisance Wildlife Rangers 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 Nuisance Wildlife Rangers 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 239-829-5374 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 Lee 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


Nuisance Wildlife Rangers is a full-service Lehigh Acres wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Lehigh Acres pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Nuisance Wildlife Rangers 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.

  Lehigh Acres 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 Lehigh Acres raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Nuisance Wildlife Rangers. 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 Lehigh Acres 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 Lehigh Acres 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 Lehigh Acres 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 Lehigh Acres pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Lehigh Acres 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 Lehigh Acres trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Lehigh Acres 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. Nuisance Wildlife Rangers does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Nuisance Wildlife Rangers. 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. Nuisance Wildlife Rangers also provides dead animal removal in Lehigh Acres. 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 Lehigh Acres 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 Lehigh Acres. And remember, we are a private business, not Lee County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 239-533-7387. Lee County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Lehigh Acres Wildlife Tip #1:
Does poison make rodents thirsty and die outside?

No, this is a myth. Truth of the matter is they actually don't feel thirsty or hungry and so will stay and die inside. Here is what exactly happens when rodents ingest poison.

The poison will start to corrode the digestive tract hence they will start bleeding from the inside. With the bleeding, they are unable to digest any food material hence they will not eat or drink anything. At this point, this point they are suffering. They become weak and very sluggish in movement. This means that they will limit their movement slowly by slowly hence will avoid going out or in the open and with time they lose the ability to completely move. The rodent will then succumb to the poison and die, inside the house or near wherever they are living at the time.

Most rodents' body structure is made in such a way that they are incapable of vomiting, which would otherwise expel the poisonous food once consumed. This is so because they have a long oesophagus thus creating a hindrance in forceful expulsion of food. In addition, their neurological system does not have a connection to the entire diverse muscular system making it hard to coordinate the abdomen, throat and shoulders into engaging in the expulsion of the contents from the stomach back to oesophagus and out through the mouth. They can however move food from the stomach to the throat passively, a process referred to as regurgitation.

The inability of rodents to vomit pts them at a disadvantage especially when they consume contaminated or poisonous food. The ability of their body to act against these foods is their only way out, or otherwise they will die of poisoning. Due to this susceptibility, rodents have adapted other ways of avoiding such occurrences; such as they will eat a small sample of food to see if they will get sick before they come back for more. Their strong smell and taste senses make it possible to detect most harmful substances; hence will avoid food that is contaminated with these substances. Also, rodents are very intelligent and will observe the cause-effect after eating a certain food and will avoid the ones that cause too many deaths very quickly.

The effectiveness and speed of the poison squarely lies on the type of poison used hence the elements used to make the poison and the immunity level developed by the rodent's body against the poison. Some poisons contain strong elements like Bromadiolone which will work as fast as the next day up to a week and can last for as long as three seasons. Poisons containing weaker elements might take up to several months before taking effect or might be overpowered by strong immune systems.

However, care should be taken while handling poison as they are a danger to humans and other animals just like they are to rodents.

Lehigh Acres 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 Nuisance Wildlife Rangers, any time of day, at 239-829-5374, for a price quote for Lehigh Acres wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Lehigh Acres, FL.
