Best Winter Haven Florida Critter Removal
Winter Haven, 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 Winter Haven 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 Winter Haven wildlife removal.

What Should I Do if I Find a Nest of Baby Skunks?
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.
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.

Orlando is one of the most popular family destinations in the USA, and with its fantastic theme parks and family-orientated attractions, it is easy to see why.
Here is a quick guide to Orlando, including some of the best family attractions to visit during your Orlando holiday:
1. The Walt Disney World Resort
The Walt Disney World Resort has enough to keep you entertained for days, so it is a great place to visit as part of an Orlando holiday. There are four theme parks at the resort, all of which have rides, parades, shows and restaurants:
o The Magic Kingdom is packed with rides including thrilling high-speed rollercoasters like Space Mountain, a Haunted Mansion, a Jungle Cruise, Peter Pan Flight and the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. You can also have your photo taken with Winnie the Pooh and other Disney characters.
o Disney Animal Kingdom Park is home to many different animals, including hippos, gorillas, big cats and monkeys, and you can see them by taking a safari trip. You can also enjoy great rides such as Dinosaur, Expedition Everest and the Kali River Rapids, and young children will love rides like the Boneyard and the Tricera Top Spin.
There are plenty of parking spaces available, so you should be able to find somewhere to leave your Orlando hire car.
Florida is famous for its alligators and if you drive your Orlando hire car to Gatorland, you can see some of these wonderful creatures up close.
There are thousands of alligators and crocodiles at Gatorland, including Cuban crocodiles, Nile crocodiles and American crocodiles, and the park has its own Breeding Marsh, where you can see over 100 adult alligators.
You can also visit the Snakes of Florida exhibit, where you can see the venomous Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake, the Very Merry Aviary, where you can feed nectar to lorikeets, and Allies Barnyard, where you can pet farm animals.
You can also take a stroll along the Swamp Walk, see a Gator Jumparoo or Gator Wrestling show, or cool down at the new Gator Gully Splash Park.

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.
