Contact us for raccoon or other wildlife removal services.
You may appreciate the beauty of nature and the great outdoors, including the wildlife that surrounds us, but that doesn’t mean you’ll want raccoons, skunks, squirrels, birds, and other wildlife in your home or business. Besides being a real nuisance and causing damage to structures, they can also carry significant diseases that can be transmitted to people and pets.
For your Coral Springs animal control services—and for wildlife control in surrounding areas—just contact us online or call 954-326-8287. Our trained technicians are here to help!
Raccoon Removal Services
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), raccoons spread intestinal worms (baylisascaris procyonis) through their feces. People affected by these parasites can experience nausea and fatigue, as well as an enlarged liver, loss of coordination, and more. These worms can cause blindness and even death. Raccoons can also carry rabies, giardiasis (which can cause severe gastrointestinal symptoms), leptospirosis, salmonella, e.coli, and other dangerous diseases.
Plus, these critters can contaminate your food supply, and attack cats and dogs. Raccoons can damage insulation, electrical wiring, ductwork, and more as they build nests and settle into your Florida home.
Because they’re nocturnal creatures, you may not see them inside your home or business. Instead, you might hear them moving around at night or see their feces or track marks. Or you might see that a critter has been in your food or knocked over your trash. No matter what signs you see, if there’s a chance that this animal is inside, it’s important to contact professionals for safe and effective raccoon removal services.
So, if you’re in Coral Springs, Parkland, Weston, Pembroke Pines, Davie, Plantation, or Southwest Ranches and are looking for “raccoon removal near me,” contact us! Our family owned and operated business has been serving this area since 1985, providing the best possible service and treating people like we’d like to be treated.
Skunk Removal Services
If you’ve got skunks hanging around your Florida home, you’ll almost certainly know it by the awful smell. That alone is a reason to want them removed from the area. This nasty odor can get into your drywall and HVAC system with the latter spreading the unwanted reek throughout the home.
Plus, these creatures, according to the CDC, can carry some of the same diseases as raccoons. If someone is scratched or bitten by a skunk, or in contact with feces and urine, they could catch tularemia or leptospirosis. The latter disease can cause fever, severe headaches, and muscle pain, and can even cause liver damage, kidney failure, and meningitis.
Besides posing potential problems to humans, skunks can pass along canine distemper to your pets, usually when they come in contact with the feces or urine of an infected animal. Pets can also catch ringworm and roundworm from skunks.
Fortunately, our trained technicians are experienced in skunk removal and can take care of this problem for your home or business.
Squirrel Removal Services
Squirrels also carry dangerous diseases transmitted through bites and other forms of direct contact. Infected critters can carry the plague, as well as typhus and tularemia. Like any wildlife, there’s the possibility that they have rabies. Plus, the fleas and ticks they have on their bodies can indirectly pass on Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, encephalitis, and more.
They’ll chew through siding, eaves, insulation, and wiring, move into unscreened chimneys and vents, and otherwise damage your home. If they chew through the wiring (or through utility lines or cables), they can trigger a house fire.
Rather than trying to deal with these creatures on your own, contact our squirrel trappers for fast, effective service.
Bird Removal Services
The Institute of Zoology notes the number of diseases carried by birds, including passerine salmonellosis, Paridae pox, finch trichomoniasis, and more. And, unfortunately, it’s super easy for birds to accidentally fly into your Florida home through an open window or door but difficult to remove a panicky bird once it gets inside. If possible, shut the bird into one single room, close all cabinet and closet doors in that room, and then stay out.
Other times, birds might make a nest in your chimney; if you use your chimney, smoke and carbon monoxide might end up in your home and could start a fire if sparks connect with the nest. If birds block vents with a nest, your home won’t get appropriate air flow and the added moisture can cause mold, mildew, and rot.
As another scenario, birds could build nests in your attic, destroying insulation (which boosts your energy costs) and otherwise wreaking havoc. Contact us, ASAP! Our wildlife control services include expert bird removal.
Preventive Animal Control Strategies: Raccoons and More
Once you get the critters out, you’ll want to keep them out, To keep raccoons and many other types of wildlife out of your home, here are strategies that can help.
- Seal up unused chimneys and any other entry points into the home.
- Keep your trash can lids firmly in place, both inside and out, and use heavy-duty trash bags to reduce any odors that can attract critters.
- Keep shrubs well trimmed and grass mowed to eliminate hiding spots for them and pick up any fruit that drops off of your trees or overripe produce from gardens.
- If you feed and water pets outside, remove any leftovers.
- You can also strategically use motion detecting lights around your home that can scare off raccoons.
