Critter Control Oakland

Best Oakland Florida Wildlife Control

Rockledge FL

Oakland, 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.

Our focus is on removing the animal from your home in the most humane and safe way possible. We want to make sure your family is safe. We also make sure the animal is treated humanely and removed properly, abiding by the laws of Oakland Florida in dealing with household pests.

This is where our expert staff comes in. We’ve removed every conceivable kind of animal from Florida homes. We handle snakes, rats, mice, raccoons, birds and armadillos. Coastal Wildlife Removal of Orlando is your best choice in Oakland wildlife removal.

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.

DON'T:
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.

Late this afternoon, when I went out to walk our puppy one of the neighbors came over to tell me this news... Apparently a bobcat has been sited within our development around one of our retention ponds, at the rear of several neighbors gardens.

Florida Bobcat

The Florida Bobcat (Lynx rufus floridanus) is known to be a warm-blooded, solitary, and territorial predator mammal. Although not as big as the Florida Panther the bobcat is usually around the size of a medium-sized dog. The bobcat is dark brown with black spots and striped bars which are most visible along their sides and legs. The backs of their ears are white with a black out line, their tails shorter having a white tip. Their under parts are also generally white with their fur being short, soft and dense. It should be noted that the bobcat has razor sharp teeth and retractable claws just like the house cats.

So what do you do if you see one...

According to the Florida Wildlife Commission they should be left well alone as they have an unpredictable disposition... remember those razor sharp teeth and retractable claws mentioned earlier?

Refer the animal to your local county Animal Control Services Department rather than risk incident.

As we have said previously, as 'man' encroaches on these animals lands, we are likely to hear of more incidents with Florida's carnivores.

I have seen hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage to people's homes. This damage was not caused by storms or fires or high water. The damage I see is caused by wild animals. Sometimes homeowner insurance covers the loss. Often times it doesn't.

I own and operate a nuisance wildlife removal service in Flint, Michigan. In this article I will review two actual cases of animal damage for you. These two cases combined cost these two homeowners almost $20,000.

The first situation involved a family that took a month long vacation from their home in Flint, Michigan. They rented a house for a month and had a wonderful time in sunny Florida. Upon their return they found their house ransacked. Chairs were tipped over, pictures were ripped from the walls, and the curtains and drapes were ripped to shreds. Every item on every shelf and had been flung to the floor. Boxes of cereal and other food were ripped open and the contents scattered all over the floors. The heartbreak really sunk in when they saw that the vandals had broken every Royal Daulton (a very expensive collectable) that they had is a large display cabinet.

Most homeowner insurance policies cover damage created by bats. Some even cover the expense of removing the bats. She turned in her claim and was turned down flat. Her policy specifically stated that rodent and bat damage are not listed for coverage.

Both of these two animal damage situations could have been prevented with a http://www.advanced-wildlife-control.com/Preventative%20home%20inspection.htm ">Preventative Home Inspection.

It's time, right now, for you to call your insurance agent. Ask if you would have been covered by either of these instances. Review your policy and ask if any animal damage is specifically excluded.

I do not sell insurance. I am a homeowner and I have insurance for my own home. I know that it's not on the top of your list to make that call to your insurance agent. You may be glad at a later date that you took the time to do it.

Now go make that call.
