Best Orlando Florida Critter Removal
Orlando, 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 Orlando 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 Orlando wildlife removal.

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.

1. The Walt Disney World Resort

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.

Skunk Poop - Scat
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.
