If you have a problem with wildlife in your Royal Palm 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 Royal Palm, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Palm Beach County Animal Services: (561) 233-1200
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 561-855-3381 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:
Nuisance Wildlife Rangers is a full-service Royal Palm wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Royal Palm 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.
Royal Palm 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 Royal Palm 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 Royal Palm 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 Royal Palm 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 Royal Palm 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 Royal Palm pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Royal Palm 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 Royal Palm trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Royal Palm 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 Royal Palm. 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 Royal Palm 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 Royal Palm. And remember, we are a private business, not Palm Beach County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (561) 233-1200. Palm Beach 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.
Royal Palm Wildlife Tip #1:
What are some of the symptoms of a sick house mouse?
There are some animals that immediately let you know if they are suffering from some kind of illness. For example, if a dog has rabies you will see a foaming around its mouth, and a lot of discharge around their eyes. A raccoon or possum that is sick will likely be out during the daytime. What this tells you is that since these are nocturnal creatures, who do everything they can to avoid being out in the day, them being out during the daylight hours tells you that something is seriously wrong with the animal. It is things like this that make illness easy to detect in certain kinds of species of animals.
However, what about a mouse. How would you know if a mouse was sick in your home? That's a lot more difficult to determine, because mouse behavior is not as set as you would find in other animals, but there still are some ways to tell if a mouse is sick. If you are wanting to know what are some of the symptoms of a sick mouse, here are some tips for you.
While these are not nocturnal creatures in the strictest sense, they do most of their gathering during the dark hours. If you see a mouse that is quite active during the daytime, this can be assigned to you that there is a serious problem with the animal. The problem with this as a choice, however, is the fact that a mouse can have an allergy to something and be just as active during the day as it would be if it was suffering some kind of serious illness. This should tell you that this symptom should not be used as a determining factor for you.
Mice can have severe diarrhea when they are sick, even when they are dehydrated. If you notice that you are not seeing the normal pellet kind of poop that is normally associated with a mouse, you may have an issue with the animal being sick.
Mice will also sneeze, have watery eyes, and shaking, much in the same way that a person would if they were suffering from an illness. These are not normal characteristics for this animal, other than the shaking. Mice may shake when they are afraid at times, but if it is excessive or continues for a long period of time, and you notice that the mouse is sneezing and has watery or reddened eyes then there may be a very serious illness involved here. Just be aware that even the common cold can be deadly to this rodent, so it may require you to provide tender loving care if this is your pet.
If you see that the mouse has areas where for has been removed, there is reddening in areas, baldness, or disheveled looking fur then this can be a clear sign of illness in the animal as well. You want to make sure that you don't touch any mouse that has missing fur like this as it is likely that the animal is sick.
Royal Palm 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 561-855-3381, for a price quote for Royal Palm wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Royal Palm, FL.
