Best Christmas Florida Wildlife Control
Christmas, 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 Christmas 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 Christmas wildlife removal.

Squirrel Damage to Homes
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.

It was a hazy night, dimly lit by the light of the full moon. A thick mist hung ominously over the graveyard. Headstones could be seen peeking through the sultry fog, glowing softly in the moon light. All was quiet.
Suddenly, from one of the graves, a sound could be heard. It started softly at first, then ascended into a loud digging, grumbling, then a scampering sound! Had the dead arisen? Had someone been buried alive? Was this a scene from a horror movie? No! It was none other than the armadillo, digging around, looking for insects to eat.
One interesting fact about armadillos is that they have been found to carry the leprosy bacterium. They are not known to transmit it to humans, but they can carry it. If you think that you have an armadillo problem, it is important to contact professionals. It can be difficult to remove these stubborn creatures, but there are people who are specially trained for this task.

When you think about where poisonous snakes live, you might picture tropical climates or desert ranges throughout the country. Not many people would associate seemingly innocent forests and wooded areas in Indiana as homes to venomous snakes. But the truth is, out of the 39 species of snake found in Indiana, there are 4 species that are poisonous. Continue reading to learn which ones!
The Water Moccasin Agkistrodon piscivorus
Also known as Eastern Cottonmouths, Water Moccasins are a poisonous subspecies of pitviper that can deliver a painful and potentially deadly bite. Bites are treated with a serum called CroFab anti-venom. Although usually not fatal, their cytotoxic venom can cause severe scarring, tissue deterioration, and possible amputation. They are the only species of semiaquatic vipers in the world, usually living in or near marches, slow-moving streams, and lake areas. Most Cottonmouths live in warmer regions, so it is unlikely to ever spot one in the north. But there is a small population known to exist near the southern border of Indiana. Although their patterns often get them confused for common water snakes, you can tell a Water Moccasin apart because it displays a distinguishable inner white mouth when agitated or annoyed.
The Timber Rattlesnake Crotalus horridus
Another endangered venomous pitviper species, the Timber Rattlesnake is often found living on dry deciduous forests and hillsides surrounding rugged terrain. Unfortunately for Hoosiers, the Timber Rattlesnake is among the most dangerous in the country. This is because they are large in size, extremely venomous, and have long fangs. Its venom is neurotoxic, hemorrhagic, and proteolytic.
