Trapping ducks is one of the most effective ways to remove them. Ducks can do extensive damage to areas such as porches, pool decks, sidewalk, drive-ways, and sometimes attics. They can nest in residential areas and become very territorial. If certain types of ducks invade the attic, there is a possibility the insulation and drywall can be ruined. Using poison to rid your establishment of ducks is illegal, it will also cause the duck to die.

When an animal dies not only does it create a foul smell, it can cause a home or business unusable for a period of time. The dead animal will breed mold and bacteria harmful for humans and pets. Affordable Wildlife Removal can locate and remove any dead animal allowable under FWC law, disinfect, and deodorize to rid the property of the smell, bacteria, and/or mold.

Most buildings have a number of potential openings that are not easily seen. Animals could have entered through small crevices in the soffit, roof, crawl spaces under the establishment, smaller rodents such as rats or mice can use openings as small as the size of a quarter.

It is almost impossible to identify what type of animal intrusion you have over the telephone, which is why it is paramount to complete a full inspection of the property to identify the issue and how they entered the residence. Here are some signs that may indicate you have the following animals:

  • Scratching or scampering noises in the attic during morning or early evening hours, with no night activity,  is typically squirrel activity.
  • Light scratching or chewing, (sounds similar to scratching on the wall with a fingernail), on a wall or ceiling during any time of day or night is usually mouse activity.
  • If you are hearing rolling or the sounds of footsteps in the attic, it is typically raccoons.

There are multiple factors that determine pricing for animal removal: location of the animal, condition of the animal, and location of the property. The pricing of animal removal does not include any entry repair.

what do you do with the animals you trap?

YES. They may look cute to some, but they are dangerous. Raccoons are the number one carrier of rabies in Florida, and rabies is 100% fatal if untreated.

The squirrels might eventually leave but not for months after they are born. Waiting for these critters to leave is subjecting the property to significant and expensive damage. Squirrels can rip apart electrical wiring, ruin drywall, destroy air conditioning duct work, and the most obvious: leave feces and urine everywhere. If you allow them to leave on their own, there is a very likely possibility that the openings used by the squirrels will be found by other wildlife.

According to Florida Law, FWC states: live-captured nuisance wildlife must be released legally or euthanized humanely within 24 hours of capture or trap inspection. Native nuisance wildlife may be released off the capture site if the release site is a minimum of 40 contiguous acres, and the person releasing the nuisance wildlife has in their possession written permission from the landowner of the release site allowing release on their property. Nuisance wildlife may not be released on federal, state, county, local or private lands without written permission of the landowner.
The animals we trap are released on over 40 acres of privately owned uninhabited land.
