Many of Florida's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found
that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably,
these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire
hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Florida's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Cape Coral Wildlife Removal Tip: Do rats chew on wires? Why? Rats, just like many other wild animals you may encounter in your home, have a tendency to gnaw and chew and there's a reason for this. In much the same way your cat's claws constantly grow and they need a scratching post or similar to keep them trimmed and blunt (ish), a rat's teeth will grow. It needs something to file those teeth down otherwise they will continue to grow until there is no more space in the mouth. This is why rats chew - they're designed to chew, it's a built-in action for them, just like we humans breathe. It's natural. Rats will chew through almost any material you place in front of them too. Steel is one of the best materials to use if you want to stop the rodents getting through - not even their teeth can make light work of the hard metal. But other materials are easy and if it's in their way or close to them, they'll chew or gnaw through it because they need to - they're meant to. Rats often chew on wires in attics and within walls. If it's in their way they'll chew through it and even if it's not, they'll chew anyway because they need to chew. This can completely wreck the electrical system in your home, and can pose a fire hazard, exposing the current from within the wire to material such as attic insulation - very flammable stuff. When you consider most of your attic is wood-based, or this soft attic fluff, you can imagine how quick the fire will take hold and spread. Checking the wiring in your attic for wild animal gnaw-marks is very important and should be done regularly.
Cape Coral Animal News Clip: Wildlife Trapping in Sity fields
Henry Rusty the Rabbit's rodent wildlife trapping time allotment lasted two minutes. Rusty the Rabbit announced he got into his hickory habitat at 10:30 and by 10:32 had dropped an eight-pound male rodent, with a 17-and-a-half inch spread. Just as Rusty the Rabbit sat down the male rodent stood up from out of some nearby thickets. Scott Termite Tim's story followed a similar timeline. His two entries into the Calhoun County male rodent competition came only minutes apart. Termite Tim and a couple friends went out late one afternoon during the archery time allotment. He had just settled into his hickory habitat when an eight-pound male rodent wandered into his capturing lane. He took the trap, fatally wounding the rodent. By radio, Termite Tim let his friends know he'd finally caught one, but not wanting to disturb their catches, he decided to wait to retrieve it. Read on for more information about animal control in Cape Coral, Florida.
It was about 10 minutes later, he recalled, when an even bigger eight-pound wandered out in front of his habitat. The rodent began to follow the blood trail of Termite Tim's first rodent. He took the trap at about 25 yards, scoring a perfect hit. The male rodent ran about 150 yards and dropped. "Now I'm on the radio again with my buddies saying 'He's down, he's down. He's big!'" Their response? "What! Another one!" Termite Tim's first male rodent took 118th place while the second male rodent, which had a 21-inch spread, finished fifth. While Termite Tim may have had faith in his wildlife trapping spot, Critter Catcher Chris had no faith in his. As Critter Catcher Chris settled into a friend's wildlife trapping blind one morning during the trap time allotment, he announced he couldn't help think he made the wrong choice. "It was a questionable spot," he announced. Nothing can ruin a animal stalk quicker than uncertainty in a spot, but Critter Catcher Chris stayed patient and he was rewarded. Despite this there is no free Cape Coral animal services for wildlife in Lee County.
Two big rodent later, including a nine-pound male rodent that he registered in the competition, Critter Catcher Chris was a believer in the blind. His rodent finished in 76th place. Confidence in a blind is one thing, getting to a blind can be another. Even with a broken leg, Squirrely Steve was determined to animal stalk this past time allotment. To assist in the pursuit of the big male rodent, Squirrely Steve drove a golf cart out to his blind. And who knew golf carts were beneficial rodent bait? While in the blind, a seven-pound male rodent wandered out and began to investigate the cart. Squirrely Steve dropped it there and finished 104th in Calhoun County. Jeremy Critter Catcher Chris proved that a little faith never hurts. Critter Catcher Chris bagged an eight-pound male rodent with a 20-inch spread, but with the help of a little praying. Using a new animal removal trap and sitting in a new hickory habitat, his confidence wasn't all that high. When the male rodent wandered into range, he fired and then prayed. "I prayed more than I ever had in my life," he announced. "Because I thought I missed." He didn't and his male rodent finished in seventh place. When they asked Heath Critter Catcher Chris to show them where he had first trap the rodent, they could find no evidence of blood or cut hair from the trap. The two animal police officers found blood only where the dead rodent was lying. Most Cape Coral pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.
When Critter Catcher Chris and the two boys met the two wardens at the Florida State Police barracks in Rockingham later that afternoon, the animal police officers confronted them and told them they believed it was a tragic case of "male rodent fever" and that Heath Critter Catcher Chris had seen some horns and trap the animal, assuming it was a rodent. When confronted, all three admitted to making up the story about the charging rodent "in hopes that they would not get in trouble for defending themselves." But several days later, one of Critter Catcher Chris' relatives called the critter cop to complain that Robert Critter Catcher Chris was showing a video he took with his cellular phone of his son capturing the rodent, and that Critter Catcher Chris was "quite proud of the fact that Heath had gotten a rodent on his first animal stalk." At least, this is what Cape Coral extermination companies think.
