If you have a problem with wildlife in your Palm Bay 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 Palm Bay, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Brevard County Animal Services: 321-633-2024
Affordable Wildlife 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 Affordable Wildlife 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 321-802-2057 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:
Affordable Wildlife Removal is a full-service Palm Bay wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Palm Bay pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Affordable Wildlife 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.
Palm Bay 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 Palm Bay raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Affordable Wildlife 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 Palm Bay 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 Palm Bay 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 Palm Bay 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 Palm Bay pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Palm Bay 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 Palm Bay trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Palm Bay 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. Affordable Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Affordable Wildlife 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. Affordable Wildlife Removal also provides dead animal removal in Palm Bay. 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 Palm Bay 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 Palm Bay. And remember, we are a private business, not Brevard County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 321-633-2024. Brevard 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.
Palm Bay Wildlife Tip #1:
Beaver Prevention - How to keep Beavers away from pond or stream
With the development that exists in humans, conflicts between beavers and humans also exist. Good thing, there are specific methods that can help keep them away from a pond or a stream. Below are the lists of beaver prevention tips to ever consider in mind.
Cut Down Trees
One of the best preventative tips to keep beavers away from a pond or stream is to cut down the trees next to a water source. Actually, they enjoy it eating trees, plants, shrubs and aquatic vegetation's.
Wrap the Trees in Wires
Due to the very reason that they do not climb, it is essential to wrap the trees in wires. Fence them in as much as possible. If you want, you may make use of sand and paint mixture on the trees. But, it must be reapplied at all times. If you think of the aesthetics, you may make use of a 2-strand electric fence.
Make Use of Beaver Pipes
The use of beaver pipes will help lower the water level which is held by a dam. This will need water for it to feel and stay secure. If it loses the ability to store water and control its depth, it will later on abandon its site. It will also help if you just destroy the dam. But, remember that this only works for a limited time. It will still rebuild its dam. As the beaver pipe draws out water while it has no idea why the water reduces, it will then move away.
Trap the Beaver
If you will decide to trap the beaver, you need to keep in mind that it must be fully enhanced. All other elements including the dam must be removed as well. These are all those factors that need to be kept in mind. These only attract beavers which will just make them decide to still stay there. It is best to make it sure that you do not suffer from their stay. They should no longer stay in your property.
Now, you already have learned the best prevention to keep in mind. It is now up to you to choose which of these solutions will serve as the best. If you want, you can ask help from other experts and professionals. Let them know your situation and let them strategize the best techniques for your beaver issues!
Palm Bay 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.
