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.

We handle every aspect of wildlife control. We are fully equipped to work on any project, large or small. Some of our services include:

  • Humane wildlife trapping and relocaton services
  • Removal of raccoons or squirrels from the attic
  • Building repairs and prevention work to keep animals out
  • 100% permanent elimination of rats, mice, or even bats
  • Cleanup of animal waste and odor control services
  • Emergency animal issues, and dead animal removal

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Sarasota county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Sarasota animal control for wildlife issues.

Sarasota Wildlife Removal Tip: The Biology Of The Evening Bat

The Evening Bat is one of the smaller species of bat that is commonly found across the United States, and it is a species that is quite easy to tell apart from other bat species, because of the difference in color and size. They are a migratory species that is found in many different states, but while some of these bats have been found to travel relatively little, others have been found over three hundred miles south of their primary habitat.


With a brown glossy fur the first glance at the Evening Bat may make it appear similar to the Big Brown Bat, but the size of the body and the wingspan means that they are easy to tell apart. If you do spot these bats in the wild, they will often swarm in groups of up to a thousand, although colonies of under fifty individuals are also known.


Unusually for bats present in the USA, these bats mate in the fall, and the female will then store the sperm before fertilization to ensure that the young are born in June, and the females give birth to two young bats as opposed to the sole offspring most bat species will produce. these baby bats grow swiftly, and can find their own food within three weeks after birth.

Life Cycle

Along with the higher birth rate among female Evening Bats, there is also a much shorter life span, with most of the bats usually living for between two and five years. Once they are self sufficient male bats will abandon their mothers, while female bats will usually stay with their mother, and forage and hunt with her.


In the rural areas, most of these bats will make their home in a hollow tree or a small cave, where they will stay for much of the day, with a short hunting period around dusk. Although they are usually found in rural areas, they are a species that can adapt to living in urban areas, as long as there are enough insects that the bats can eat.


Beetles are among the most common prey for the Evening bat, while moths and other flies can also be a part of the diet of the species. A survey carried out looking at a colony of around three hundred Evening Bats estimated that around 6.3 million insects in the area around the colony were consumed by the bats during a summer season.


Evening bats are particularly fond of foraging around the edges of forests and rarely ventures to territory over 300 meters above sea level. While many bats hibernate completely in the winter, on warmer winter days, the Evening Bats may venture out to search for foraging opportunities to last them until the spring when they fully awaken.

Sarasota Animal News Clip: Sarasota animal trapping unusually large rodent

Sarasota -- It's the first heavy snowfall of unusually large rodent animal trapping season, but for Bad News Billy and Snake Handler Steve and Critter Catcher Chris there's more than snow to deal with from this storm. "It's really windy and we're going to limit ourselves on the range we're gonna cover," announced Snake Handler Steve and Critter Catcher Chris. "Let's just keep going and we'll hike down some of these ridges around here around this corner so we can view. If it's quiet we'll rattle up there. That's where the scrapes are that's where we need to go." Read on for more information about animal control in Sarasota, Florida.

Snake Handler Steve and Critter Catcher Chris is leading the way on this expedition because it's his animal trap. Bad News Billy already harvested a buck for the season so on this snowy windy day in the mountains north of the Hayden lake Idaho. Bad News Billy listens intently on Snake Handler Steve and Critter Catcher Chris's every word. "We're gonna have to rattle pretty loud because it's gonna be windy," announced Snake Handler Steve and Critter Catcher Chris. "You already know how quiet they are." Those unusually large rodent are quiet but they are not hard to track in snow. Despite this there is no free Sarasota animal services for wildlife in Sarasota County.

Hoof prints littered every area we went and at times it's almost too difficult to decide which rodent to track. "They're moving all over you know. It's like, it's like, this way, this way, that way," announced Snake Handler Steve and Critter Catcher Chris. That is what it's like all day. We stalk rodent along mountainsides, up to ridgelines and down through draws and all we end up with is fresh tracks or a sighting in the distance. They always stay just far enough ahead of us. "That's where I saw him before," announced Snake Handler Steve and Critter Catcher Chris. "See that dark patch up there. That's what he was in and then the fog rolled in and he disappeared." Only a brief glance at a rodent in the distance and then it is gone. More fresh tracks are spotted and then even more wind arrives. "Yeah its pretty windy lets get the wind in our advantage as much as possible," announced Snake Handler Steve and Critter Catcher Chris. Keeping the wind in our favor is tricky as the storm has a way of shifting breezes around the mountains on a consistent basis. Again it's Snake Handler Steve and Critter Catcher Chris's call and he thinks its best to find a spot near a high traffic area and sit. "It's kind of nice right here though, you know, kind of out of the wind," announced Snake Handler Steve and Critter Catcher Chris. Most Sarasota pest control companies that we interviewed found this interesting.

After all the snow fell that day, with our footprints left right next to the tracks of those unusually large rodent, Snake Handler Steve and Critter Catcher Chris never fired a shot. That's what animal trapping is. It's a walk in the woods and maybe you'll get a chance to put a shell in the rifle chamber and pull the trigger, but either way, you always have a story to tell. At least, this is what Sarasota extermination companies think.
