Brevard County FL Wildlife Trapping and Removal
A professional wildlife control company does a lot more than just trap the animals, but still, this is an essential part of the nuisance animal solution process A lot of expertise, experience, and laws goes into wildlife trapping – from licensing and legal issues, to trap type/size, baits and lures, placement and presentation, safety of both people and animal, care for the animal’s comfort, etc.
Wildlife trapping should not be attempted by amateurs. One of the most common problems in this industry is the do-it-yourself people. They buy a trap, and then do everything wrong. For example, if they catch anything at all, it might be the wrong animal – a non-target species, the neighbor’s cat, who knows? Then once it’s caught, everyone asks, “now what?” and often calls a pro at that time. Furthermore, there’s a good chance that what you’ve done is illegal in your state, or it’s illegal to relocate the animal. And what if you get a skunk?

Raccoon in the House - if the Animal is Anywhere Inside Your House
Bats are fascinating mammals with incredible appetites and impressive flying skills. Bats are admirable, to say the least, but real estate and homeowners do not want these critters dwelling inside their properties. Bats will find access points into residential and commercial buildings where they feed, breed, and nest their young. They typically settle in dark and isolated areas, such as attics, sheds, and crawl spaces. When this situation is discovered, the only solution is bat removal and bat control. Continue reading to learn why bat removal and exclusion are so crucial, and how to contact your local bat control specialist for help.
There are many signs that point towards a bat infestation. If you hear squeaking and scratching noises in the night, coming from within your home, then this could mean you have bats somewhere on your property. The most common way bat colonies are discovered in residential homes is simply by spotting them. Bats are nocturnal and come out at night to feed on insects. They are hard to miss when flying from their roosts.
Once bats are removed from a property, bat prevention and control should be implemented. This involves cleaning up the area that was contaminated and soiled, then repairing any structural damages caused by the bats. Once the mess is cleaned and sanitized, and the repairs are complete, preventative maintenance is the final step.
Once you get rid of bats in your property, have your professional bat exclusion experts conduct a home inspection to determine what areas are vulnerable and weak. They should offer interior and exterior property inspections that allow them to determine where animals are entering the premises and what spots may be potential access points in the future. This inspection will let the specialist know where to patch up access points and how to prevent bats and other animals from coming back. Bat-proofing is the most important part of the process because it eliminates the problem altogether.

Florida has a lot of bats! They thrive in Florida.
Some people are scared to death of bats. They creep many people right out. Even those of us that don't mind dealing with bats are entitled to an increased pulse rate when one is flying around our bedroom at 2:00 in the morning!
I am a bat removal expert. I have taken bats out of living rooms, bedrooms, basements and kitchens, walls, and attics. I work all hours of the day (and night!) and have seen people move right out of their home because a bat is flying around inside.
Unless a lone bat has accidentally flown in the house through an open door or window, chances are it is living in the walls or attic. Somehow it got confused, followed a fresh air current, and wound up in the living quarters. As much as people try to convince themselves that it is the only bat living in their home, chances are very good that there are more where that one came from. As you probably know, bats are friendly creatures and usually live in colonies. One bat does not make a colony!
As you can probably tell, my wildlife control company charges for bat inspections. We guide homeowners through the bat removal process and encourage them to save money by taking our recommendations and implementing them. Sometimes homeowners opt to do it all themselves and we are happy to guide them every step of the way. Other times, homeowners want us to do all the work. Either way, because of the detailed inspection that we have provided, they know every gap in their house that will be sealed.
Getting bats out of houses isn't rocket science. It is however a lot of work and takes time. If a bat has found its way inside your home, call a professional, get educated, and get the bats out!
