Best Merritt Island Florida Animal Removal
Merritt Island, FL, may be the happiest place on earth, but that doesn’t stop nuisance Florida wildlife from moving to the area. Bats, for example, are prevalent. These pests carry rabies and easily break into attics, one of their favorite places to roost. Surprisingly, they only need a gap less than half an inch wide to get in. As their droppings pile up, so do histoplasmosis spores that can lead to lung infections. Bat waste also stains exterior walls at entry points.

If There is a Raccoon in My Attic, How Likely is It to Come Down into My Home?
Wildlife removal has become a growing industry. Knowing how to get rid of raccoons from attics, how to get rid of squirrels nesting and from chewing on your house, or even how to get rid of an armadillo from digging up your lawn has become more difficult for homeowners and property managers to manage.
The problem has become to large for cities to handle so a new industry has been born, Nuisance Wildlife Removal. The most common nuisance wildlife is raccoons, squirrels, rats, bats, opossums, skunks, snakes, and armadillos. Wild hogs have recently become a common nuisance. Hogs mostly have effected the farm industry and ranching, but is becoming an urban nuisance as well.
Armadillos, skunks, and opossums commonly take up urban residence. Cities will only come and pick them up if you already have them trapped. Rats and bats should quickly be removed from structures before they over populate the property.
Wildlife removal has become a separate industry from pest control. A wildlife removal company will use natural methods of removal and traps to get rid of the nuisance animals. Pest control uses chemicals to control insects.

While everyone knows that Orlando is an outdoorsman's destination, what you may not realize is that the state is also home to thousands of snakes, six of which are venomous. But don't worry; with a little common sense and knowledge under your belt, you can keep safe and fang free.
There are no less than 55 different types of snakes in Orlando. The most common include the good old rat snakes, water snakes, and green snakes. Many of these snakes are beneficial to the environment, killing and eating not only pest species like rats and mice, but also other, venomous snakes. Speaking of which, a small minority of these species, 9 to be exact, are poisonous.
These venomous snakes are the Copperhead, the Coral snake, Eastern, and Western varieties of Cottonmouth (Water Moccasin) and five types of rattlesnakes including the Timber, Canebrake, Eastern Diamondback, Dusky Pigmy, and Western Pigmy. The Eastern Diamondback is the largest of these, reaching up to six feet, while the Timber Rattler goes just slightly smaller. While the telltale 'rattle' of these pit vipers are often heard as a warning, the smaller pigmy variants have an almost silent shake to them, but are no less dangerous. The majority of Eastern Diamondbacks are found in Orlando, but are increasingly being encountered further north.
If trying to keep your camp or home snake free, be cleanliness is the best policy. Remove any trash, trash piles, scrap timber stacks, and other things that can lead to nice bedding areas for the no-armed slither type. Spring is an especially strong time of year to be on the lookout at the camp for invading snakes that are very active during this period. The last thing you want to do is be away all summer and come back to find a snake cave.
If a snake, of any sort but especially a potentially venomous one, bites you seek immediate medical attention. When getting help, you will want to be able to advise what type of snake bit you, so try to remember any details such as length, head shape, markings, color, and actions. Take a picture if you can with your cellphone or camera rather than attempt to capture it. The last thing the hospital needs is you bringing some strange snake into the emergency room with you.
It could make them as mad as a rattlesnake.

Armadillos may not look like any other creature in North America, but they can certainly be as destructive as the best of them. Armadillos mainly make their homes in the southern states of the US and in areas of Mexico and South America where the soil is soft and warm. Armadillos must dig for most of their food as their diet largely consists of worms, grubs and insects. While normally, these animals are considered as harmless (dare I say cute in an ugly way) critters, they can do a considerable amount of damage to your property.
Armadillos are regarded as pests by landscapers, homeowners and gardeners alike because of their incessant need to dig. Not only do they have to dig for their meals, but most of the issues that arise around armadillos are about their burrows. Armadillos obviously don't understand that some places are not ideal to dig their burrow, so they often end up under your house or your porch. If they burrow too close to the supporting beams of your porch/house/etc. it can actually cause the foundation of your structures to crack! Do not let this happen to you, there are some things that you can do to get rid of your armadillo problem.
1. Attempt to poison the armadillo. Not only is it ineffective, it is dangerous to all other animals, your pets and your family to lay out poison.
2. Shoot them or use any other inhumane method of getting rid of them.
3. Buy and use repellents; they simply do not work and you will end up wasting your money.
4. Do not put up your fence without getting the armadillos out of your yard first.
Getting rid of your armadillo problem doesn't have to give you heartburn. When in doubt, call a professional near you to help you with your problem. This is the easiest (and cheapest in some cases) way to handle your armadillo issues.
