Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Marco Island, FL

Marco Island Wildlife Animal Control

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

Nuisance Wildlife Rangers
Cell Phone: 239-829-5374

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Collier County Animal Services: 239-530-7387



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 Collier 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 Marco Island wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Marco Island 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.

  Marco Island 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 Marco Island 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 Marco Island 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 Marco Island 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 Marco Island 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 Marco Island pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Marco Island 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 Marco Island trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Marco Island 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 Marco Island. 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 Marco Island 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 Marco Island. And remember, we are a private business, not Collier County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 239-530-7387. Collier County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Marco Island Wildlife Tip #1:
What you have to do when you find a snake nest

People may find nests of snakes in their garden or backyard, and this is what shows them that there is a snake that lives near their place. It is a sign that the property has snakes, so you have to start looking for ways that you can prevent the snakes from appearing in your home. You can do few things to keep the snakes away.

Make sure that there are no wood piles, bushes or other features which can offer shelter to the snakes or the snakes' prey. You can seal off the gaps where the snakes can access the foundation of the house, shed or pool area where they can easily make their nests. Using foam spray may work if the snakes don't dig or chew, but rodents can do this.

You should assess the property to see if there are rodents. You may use a non-toxic technique in order to decrease and eliminate the rodent population from the entire property. Rodents can be even more dangerous compared to the snakes. They will attract the snakes and they carry around diseases. When there is no food to eat and no shelter where they can stay, then the snakes may still move on the property, but they will not stay there for long.

When you try to get rid of the nest of the snake, you have to be careful since there are harmful and dangerous snakes, and it requires extreme caution. Besides, if you are removing the snake, you have to wear protective gloves to ensure your protection and safety. It is also hygienic and is something recommended by the medical and health experts.

When you finish removing a nest, you have to clean where it was so that you can avoid more nests in the future since the snakes may have chosen to live there because the area is appropriate for them. If you are not aware of what you can do when you have found the snake or if you are worried, then you should contact an animal removal company to advise you on what you can do or to come and help you in removing the snakes or the nests.

They are aware of how to best handle things that are related to snakes. The best thing is that when you hire the professionals, they are able to handle everything well since they have been trained to do so. They do everything right, which will prevent you from feeling stressed and possibly getting injured.

Marco Island 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 Marco Island wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Marco Island, FL.
