If you have a problem with wildlife in your Pompano 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 Pompano Beach, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Broward County Animal Services: 954-359-1313
Wildlife Trapping Professionals 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 Wildlife Trapping Professionals 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 954-543-5185 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:
Wildlife Trapping Professionals is a full-service Pompano Beach wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Pompano Beach pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Trapping Professionals 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.
Pompano 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 Pompano Beach raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Trapping Professionals. 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 Pompano 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 Pompano 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 Pompano 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 Pompano Beach pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Pompano 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 Pompano Beach trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Pompano 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. Wildlife Trapping Professionals does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Trapping Professionals. 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. Wildlife Trapping Professionals also provides dead animal removal in Pompano 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 Pompano 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 Pompano Beach. And remember, we are a private business, not Broward County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 954-359-1313. Broward 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.
Pompano Beach Wildlife Tip #1:
About Rabbit: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior
Rabbits are known as small mammals with their short and fluffy tails, long ears and whiskers. Actually, there are almost thirty species that can be found across countries. There are many of them that thrive in different environments. They also have a lot of characteristics in common. For instance, hares and rabbits fall under the same family known as Leopridae. However, they fall under different genera.
Diet and Habitat
Rabbits are known as herbivores. They eat on a plant-based diet. In addition to that, their diets consist of clover, cruciferous plants and grasses. These cruciferous plants include Brussels sprouts and broccoli. Actually, they are considered as opportunistic feeders that eat seeds, buds, roots, tree bark and fruits.
In regard with their habitat, they actually originate from Africa and Europe. They can now be found all across the globe. They are known to occupy the land masses of the world but not the southern part of South America, Madagascar and West Indies. Rabbits have also been introduced in New Zealand, Australia, South America and Java.
For domestic rabbits, they basically need an environment that is regulated. This will help protect them from hypothermia or heat exhaustion. On the other hand, wild rabbits have no problem with this as they create their homes in different temperature extremes. Wild rabbits are also found in the meadows, tundra, wetlands, forests, woods and deserts. They also create their homes by means of tunneling the ground. And as per these so-called tunnel systems, these are known as warrens with rooms for sleeping and nesting. There are also multiple entrances that enable them to escape. These warrens measure nine point eighty-four feet deep.
Rabbits are known to behave socially. This is due to the very reason that they are social creatures. They also live in a large group known as colonies. It is during dawn and dusk that they consider as the busiest time of their day. This is the time that they come out for food. Due to a low light, they are able to hide from their predators. These predators usually include hawks, wild dogs, falcons, owls, ground squirrels and feral cats. Their ability to run and their long legs allow them to run at a high speed.
Biology and Life Cycle
Rabbits originate from the Lagamorpha order, and Leporidae family. They also come from the genus Cylvilagus and the species Oryctolagus cuniculus. Prior to their life cycle, they are known to build their nests and give birth to baby rabbits. They reproduce quickly with several litters every year. Now, you already have learned more about the appearance, biology, life cycle, diet, behavior and habitat of rabbits!
Pompano 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.
You can always call Wildlife Trapping Professionals, any time of day, at 954-543-5185, for a price quote for Pompano Beach wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Pompano Beach, FL.
