Wildlife Control In Sumter & Lake County, FL

Professional Wildlife Control From Bertram Pest Solutions

Between mosquitos buzzing, roaches scurrying, and termites chomping, Florida residents might not think about wildlife infestations as much as they think about other infestations, but this would be a mistake. We've got a number of species in The Villages and the surrounding areas, and that means wildlife control needs to be on your Florida pest control radar.

Common Problem Species In Florida

Here in The Villages, and the rest of Central Florida, there are several species of wildlife that can cause no end of headaches for home and business owners alike. Common nuisance animals you might run into include: 

  • Opossums
  • Raccoons
  • Skunks
  • Armadillos 
  • Bats

You might think having a few wild animals on your property is no big deal, but there are actually several major problems that wild animals can cause. 

The main problem with having wild animals on your property is their potential to give you one of a myriad of diseases. Animals in your attic or crawl space are also urinating and defecating in these areas, potentially exposing you to air or water-borne illnesses. A good example would be bats. If you have a bat problem in your attic, these bats leave guano that contains Histoplasma capsulatum everywhere they roost. When the guano dries, it releases fungal spores into the air, potentially giving you histoplasmosis. Many wild animals on your property also have the potential to spread rabies. 

Wildlife can also indirectly spread disease by bringing secondary infestations onto your property. Almost every wild animal carries fleas and ticks. When these animals take up residence on your property, they can introduce breeding populations of these external parasites, exposing you to infections like Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever. 

There's also the issue of property damage. Wild animals can do everything from digging huge holes in your yard to damaging your attic and crawl space by repeatedly leaving waste in them to ripping up walls for access to nesting materials. That means you'll need wildlife control services to help you protect both your property and your health.

Our Wildlife Control Process

If you have a wildlife problem, don't try to deal with it on your own. Wild animals will not hesitate to defend themselves if they feel their lives or their young are in danger. Attempting to trap and remove wild animals on your own could get you scratched, bitten, or even skunked. What's worse, being bitten by a wild animal almost always means getting a round of painful and sometimes wildly expensive rabies shots. 

Don't take the risk of interacting with potentially dangerous and aggressive animals – especially not when there's a much safer and easier solution. For the best wildlife removal in The Villages, trust the wildlife experts here at Bertram Pest Solutions. Our safe and professional wildlife removal experts know how to get rid of wild animals on your property without putting themselves or your family in harm's way. 

We'll begin with a full inspection of your property to identify trouble areas, the species involved, and the scope of the problem. The inspection allows us to work out a game plan to get your property free of wildlife. 

Our exclusion methods for wildlife include the following: 

  • One-way doors 
  • Custom-fit exterior home exclusions
  • Trapping and removal
  • Long-term monitoring (if needed)

We customize our service based on the needs of our customers, and we'll work with your schedule and budget to figure out the re-treatment frequency that works best for you. Customer satisfaction is our top priority; we won't rest until you've got the wildlife out of your life. 

Protect Your Home Or Business From Wildlife

You don't have to take wildlife infestations lying down. Even though it's never a good idea to deal with existing infestations alone, you can do plenty to prevent an infestation from starting. It's all about reducing attractants around your property. To do this:

  • Cover all indoor and outdoor trash cans with wildlife-proof lids. 
  • Get rid of all ground-level water sources possible. 
  • Use wire mesh to cover potential entryways into your home. 
  • Never leave pet food or dirty pet dishes sitting out. 
  • Store outdoor foods (pet food, livestock grains, etc.) in animal-proof containers. 

Following these best practices can help keep your property free of wildlife by making it less attractive to most nuisance species in the area. However, even these measures still may not be enough. If that's the case, don't hesitate to contact us here at Bertram Pest Solutions. Our thorough and safe wildlife removal services mean that a house free of nuisance wildlife is just a click or call away. Don't wait until your problem gets out of control. Contact us as soon as you see signs of wildlife on your property.
