How to Remove Bats in the Chimney?
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!

The Facts about Raccoons
With their dark mask and mischievous curiosity, raccoons always seem to be up to no good. The raccoon is a nocturnal mammal, which means that it spends majority of its night scavenging for food. As a result of this, many individuals wake up the next morning to find their trash scattered across their front yard. Raccoons prefer wooded areas near a water source as this is their natural habit, however, they have adapted extremely well to the urban environment. Instead of making their home in a tree, they often nestle in accessible areas in your home such as an attic or chimney, or underneath a deck, house or shed. Because raccoons are nocturnal, it may take a long time to even know that you have a raccoon problem. However, if a raccoon has made it into your home, it will not take long to hear them scurrying about over your head. At this point it's a good idea to call a professional pest control company that handles raccoon removal.
Damage Caused by Raccoons
It may be hard to imagine how a raccoon can get into your attic but low hanging or adjacent branches to your house provide easy access. Raccoons are relentless pests, so anything exposed or that can be detached, such as shingles, roof vents, chimneys, or fascia boards offer a potential entrance into your home. Raccoons find attics to be a great environment to raise their young because of the warmth they provide and the abundance of materials that can be used to build a nest. They will rip insulation off the attic walls and chew through electrical wires, as well as destroy air ducts. They will use your attic as a restroom; feces will begin to pile up and urine will seep down to your ceiling. If given the opportunity raccoons will raise multiple litters in your attic, so early detection and raccoon removal is crucial.
It is important to shop around to make sure you find the best pest control company to perform the raccoon removal as some provides services that others do not. Some companies offer exclusion, remediation, trapping, damage repair and preventative techniques. It's also important to find a company that handles pests humanely and responsibly.
Humane Raccoon Removal
Humane raccoon removal involves the placement of specialized traps in key areas of infestation that are monitored over a period of time. Once captured, strict state guidelines are followed to ensure the least amount of stress on the animal. After all of the pests are safely and humanely removed from the home, the pest control company can then perform the necessary clean up, damage repair and preventative measures involved with proper raccoon removal.
Raccoons are destructive animals, but all is not lost if you find one taking up residence in your home. One call to the right pest control company can make the raccoon removal process quick and easy for both the homeowner and pest.

Bat Removal and Exclusion
Squirrels may be a major thorn in your side. They spend enormous amounts of time eating and digging in your garden (or bird feeder) - but what can you do?
You can take major steps and set out poison, but that has its drawbacks.
You can try and trap them, but that has its drawbacks too.
Or, you can try and repel them with simple things found around your house.
People have found all types of things that can be used for repelling squirrels, but as with all things - some work for some people and not for others.
If one home remedy does not work, try another. As said earlier, some people have more success with some than others.
As a last resort, there are commercial repellents which you can buy at your local hardware store. These obviously will cost more but are a stronger repellent and may have a better effect.
