How We Solve Palm Beach Wildlife Problems
It starts with your phone call. We answer our phones 24/7, and we will carefully listen to your wildlife problem. Every case is different, so we will ask appropriate questions to help
us understand the situation better. Questions like, "do you hear the noises at night or during the daytime?" or "what type of roof do you have?" After we have a general idea of your
situation, we can provide a ballpark price range, and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment to inspect your property.
INSPECTION: Once on site, we will perform a full inspection of your home and property. This allows us to use the correct strategy and
traps. If the animals are in an attic, a full building inspection is crucial, including the following:
- All ground-level areas, such as piper or A/C line entry & exit areas, A/C chase bottoms, ground-level vents, etc.
- All mid-level areas, such as dryer vents, siding gaps, first floor eaves or dormers, etc.
- We inspect the entire roof, including all plumbing stacks, ridge caps, vents, and other potential gaps or holes.
- We also inspect inside your attic, to identify animals and damage they have caused.
- If the animals are outside, we notice many subtle clues that will assist us in a successful strategy.
TRAPPING, EXCLUSION, REMOVAL: Once we understand what animal species we are dealing with, and the problem, we use the most effective means of removing the animals. We use dozens of different types of traps.
- Trapping - If trapping the animal(s) in live cage traps, trap type, set, and location are crucial to success.
- Exclusion - Oftentimes, we are able to simply set one-way doors or other exclusion devices that allow the animals inside a building to safely exit, but never get back inside.
- Removal By Hand - Sometimes we actually remove animals by hand, or with special tools like snare poles.
- The Law - In all cases, we obey state and local laws regarding wildlife, but aim to take the most humane approach.
ENTRY HOLE REPAIRS: Repairs are a crucial step in the wildlife removal process. In many cases, such as bat or rodent control, the job cannot be performed without detailed repairs, and in
all cases, sealing the entry holes shut ensures that no future wildlife will ever enter your home.
- 100% of the entry holes must be found, and sealed shut, or the job is not complete.
- Our repairs are professional contractor grade, look good, and when applicable we use steel, which rodents such as rats or squirrels are unable to chew through.
- We give a written guarantee on our repairs against any future animal entry.
ATTIC DECONTAMINATION SERVICES: It may be desirable to clean your attic after we've removed the animals. They can leave behind large amounts of droppings,
urine, hair, oils, food, nesting material, and so on. These remnants can attract insects like cockroaches, and the scent left behind can encourage new animals to chew their way into your
house. You might experience odor problems from the waste. It's possible that mold will grow on waste areas.
- We remove or vacuum all droppings, or remove all the soiled insulation.
- We fog the attic with a special enzyme-based cleaner that destroys any organic matter and deodorizes the space.
- We repair damage, such as ductwork, electrical wires, pipes, insulation, and more.
The above are just a brief explanation of some of our methods. I haven't even addressed the hundreds of other potential cases that we deal with, from bat exclusions, to poison-free rodent control, to dead animal removal, bird roosting
prevention, mole trapping in a yard, ground-based exclusion barriers around a shed, etc. etc. Just give us a call any time, and we can describe in detail how we will resolve your specific wildlife problem.
Between the Florida heat and rain, there is always something trying to make its way into your home.
One of the most common wildlife pests in Florida happens to be snakes! Snakes can easily slither
into your home with out anyone noticing in a matter of seconds.
They are also really good at hiding in places that are warm
due to their cold blooded nature. So if you find yourself with a snake, or any other wildlife for
that matter, give us a call! We handle bats, raccoons, opossums, and specialize in complete rodent control from houses. Florida Roof Rats love to enter your attic. We remove them 100% without the use of poison. We answer our phones 24/7!

This month's wildlife how-to article: What if a house mouse got inside my house, bedroom, kitchen, etc.
What if a house mouse got inside my house, bedroom, kitchen, etc.
The funny stories of Tom and Jerry brings you laughter and fancy situations about what it’s like to have mouse in your
house, bedroom or kitchen. However, these are mere fiction stories and the truth is, having mouse in your house is not a
funny story to tell. This article discusses why mice get into your house and what you should do to get rid of them.
How does mouse get into the house?
There are several reasons why a mouse targeted your house of all the places in your street.
Among these reasons include the following:
• Clutter all over your house. Mice love clutters. They can be found in undisturbed cabinets with old clothes and among other things.
• Left over foods in your kitchen. These animals have strong sense of smell and they can smell foods even in a distance.
Do not leave left over foods uncovered in your kitchen. Mice can come over anytime in the night to have some midnight snack.
• Not properly disposed garbage. Mice feed on garbage and anything they can find in the trash bin.
• Opening/s that give access to mouse to the house. Mouse can get into your house through gaps or holes.
These can be located in your ceiling, basement or floors.
• Unsanitary environment. Mice are unsanitary animals. They can live in sewer and pile of garbage.
When you live in an unsanitary environment, there is a huge possibility of rat infestation in your house or any place nearby.
How can you tell that there is a mouse in your house?
You cannot bring your house down and look for a mouse if you are not sure that there is one.
The following are clues for you to tell that there is a mouse living in your house:
• There are visible rats feces (small black litters with faulty odor) all over the attic.
• There are possible gnawed particles (cardboards, left over foods, paper, etc.) spread in the attic.
• Possible nesting and small mice that can be located at gnawed papers and cardboards or woods.
• There is faulty smell of mouse urine all over the attic.
• Possible gnawed wiring in the area.
What do when mouse gets into the house?
First, you need to clean up your house and dispose all the clutters that can attract mouse. Clean up your kitchen cabinets and
countertops. You can also try installing traps or poison to kill the mouse – just make sure that you dispose the dead body
immediately. Lastly, call a pest control service to take care of the problem in case the infestation gets worse.
