Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Venice, FL

Venice Wildlife Animal Control

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

VOLZ WILDLIFE & PEST SERVICE
Cell Phone: 941-244-5006

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Sarasota County Animal Services: 941-955-4131



VOLZ WILDLIFE & PEST SERVICE 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 VOLZ WILDLIFE & PEST SERVICE 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 941-244-5006 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 Sarasota 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


VOLZ WILDLIFE & PEST SERVICE is a full-service Venice wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Venice pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. VOLZ WILDLIFE & PEST SERVICE 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.

  Venice 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 Venice raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at VOLZ WILDLIFE & PEST SERVICE. 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 Venice 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 Venice 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 Venice 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 Venice pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Venice 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 Venice trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Venice 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. VOLZ WILDLIFE & PEST SERVICE does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by VOLZ WILDLIFE & PEST SERVICE. 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. VOLZ WILDLIFE & PEST SERVICE also provides dead animal removal in Venice. 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 Venice 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 Venice. And remember, we are a private business, not Sarasota County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 941-955-4131. Sarasota County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Venice Wildlife Tip #1:
How to keep groundhogs away from your property

Keeping a groundhog away from your property will depend on 2 major factors. The factors include:

1. If there are no groundhogs on your property
2. Do you already have groundhogs on your property

The article will discuss these situations and provide information on what to do in both cases.

If there are no Groundhogs on Your Property

If there is currently no trace of groundhogs within your property, which could be your house, shed, porch, garden or business premises, then it is better. All you have to do is to properly fence your property and the groundhog will not be able to access it. When fencing, you should keep in mind that groundhogs are diggers and thus, make sure that the fence goes very deep into the ground.

Do you Already Have Groundhogs on Your Property

If groundhogs are already on your property, you need to eliminate them first and then take the precaution of properly fencing your property deeply grounded fencing.

Eliminating Groundhogs from your property

The best way to eliminate groundhogs from your property is to either trap them or call a professional to help you remove them.

Methods of Eliminating Groundhogs that will Not Work

There are several methods that will not work in eliminating groundhogs from your property, even though you might find them online or hear them from other people. Mothballs, ammonia, chemicals or even high pitch sound machines will not work in chasing away groundhogs from your property. As tolerate animals, good diggers and the fact they mostly have many burrows and tunnels, they will just move farther away from the sound or smell of the chemical, while enduring the ones that get to the remaining ones that get to them. In the end, you will waste money and effort without any effects on the number of groundhogs on your property.

Venice 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 VOLZ WILDLIFE & PEST SERVICE, any time of day, at 941-244-5006, for a price quote for Venice wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Venice, FL.
