Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Winter Park, FL

Winter Park Wildlife Animal Control

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

Wildout Animal Removal
Cell Phone: 407-232-9348

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Orange County Animal Services: 407-836-3111

Wildout Animal 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 Wildout Animal 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 407-232-9348 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 Orange 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

Wildout Animal Removal is a full-service Winter Park wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Winter Park pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Wildout Animal 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.

  Winter Park 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 Winter Park raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildout Animal 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 Winter Park 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 Winter Park 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 Winter Park 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 Winter Park pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Winter Park 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 Winter Park trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Winter Park 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. Wildout Animal Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildout Animal 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. Wildout Animal Removal also provides dead animal removal in Winter Park. 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 Winter Park 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 Winter Park. And remember, we are a private business, not Orange County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 407-836-3111. Orange County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Winter Park Wildlife Tip #1:
An analysis of inhumane glue traps for mice

Glue traps are referred to as inhumane since their mode of killing is very cruel. They are made using glue cardboards or fibreboards and the upper side is coated with a sticky adhesive material that will ensnare the mouse when it comes into contact with the trap. These traps are not recommended by wildlife communities and animal rights activists but still they are widely available and sold in the local markets. They are also very cheap hence easily affordable by anyone who wishes to have one.

How glue traps work

A board is applied with adhesive material like glue, mineral oil or synthetic rubber on one side. This is the part that is set to trap mice, but not before it is treated with food flavouring used as bait to attract mice. A single step by a mouse on the board will result in it being snared and immobilized. The problem comes in when the mouse tries to free itself from the trap but instead gets even snared more. The limbs are usually the first ones to get snared and in other cases the face sticks too in the process. The struggles do not help not for even a bit since it results in the trap either ripping patches off their skin and fur or even suffocate them to death. Most of them starve to death while others die due to exhaustion and stress from the struggles while trapped.

Possible aftermaths of trapped mice

The following are some of the possible results, in one way or the other that a trapped mouse would end up from the situation.

When the snap is a small board and the mouse caught is too big, chances are the mouse can easily escape by pulling itself off the board. This however does not end up swiftly since the muse will end up losing part of its skin or fur.

Another possibility is that the mouse will either starve to death, suffocate due to the fumes released by the adhesive material, dehydration or exhaustion. Both way, these deaths are very slow and agonizing hence referred to as inhumane.

In the case of these trapped mice being reached on time before their untimely deaths, one may decide to release them back into the environment. However, most of these releases are not very successful. This is because their survival rate reduces since most of them succumb to the injuries sustained by the trap, intense stress and allergic reactions caused by the glue. Even so, chances of finding trapped mice still alive for euthanizing are very slim.

These traps cause a lot of suffering and very harsh deaths that why they are not encouraged for use.

Winter Park 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 Wildout Animal Removal, any time of day, at 407-232-9348, for a price quote for Winter Park wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Winter Park, FL.
