Most Common Wildlife Removal in Brevard County
Nine Banded Armadillos
Armadillos are small mammals, known for their unique armor-like shell and notorious for their digging habits. One species in particular – the nine-banded armadillo – has made its way into the southern United States, which we see plenty of here in Florida.
The armadillo, is the only animal capable of rolling itself into a ball for protection. Armadillos prefer warm, moist climates, and thrive in forested areas and grasslands. Because they must dig for their food and shelter, they generally gravitate towards areas with loose, porous soil, which we typically ends up being somebody’s flower garden or back yard. Armadillos eat primarily insects, which account for about 90% of its diet.
Brevard and Indian River County are home to thirteen (13) species of bats that are either year round, or seasonal residents. All thirteen species of Florida bats are insectivorous (meaning they eat mosquitoes and other insects). Bat removal is a large task due to the amount of bats in Florida.
Some bats form colonies and some roost alone. There are also seven species of bats that have, on occasion, been found in Florida but they do not normally live here. These are referred to as accidental species. Three are from more northern climates and also eat insects. Four are from more tropical regions and feed on nectar, pollen and fruit. The latter have only been found in south Florida and the Florida Keys.
In an effort to access the refuge of chimneys or attics, raccoons may damage cable sheets and even tear up roof tiles. Stalks of vegetable plants might be broken and fruits or vegetables removed by raccoons. As the mammal loves eating corn corn farms might experience destruction. Raccoons have been known to dig through watermelon crops and scoop out the fruit with their paws. Chicken coops face danger in the aftermath of raccoon existence, as hungry raccoons can make their way indoors and destroy eggs, nests, and birds.
Habitat Female raccoons, known as sows, can build nests in chimneys, attics, garages, sheds, and buildings to elevate kits during the spring. A raccoon is fed or becomes more comfy living around humans when, it may attempt like entering houses through doors to raid flats for meals, moves.
There are two different, common, species of rat in the Melbourne area, luckily rat removal is the same. The Roof Rat, and the Norwegian Rat (or Norway Rat). The roof rat, is by far the most common rate we encounter, I would guess that about 80% of our calls are for rats, and every time people always as “why me”? While there are things you can do to lower your odds of attracting rats, a lot of it is just luck. Fortunately we are very good at rat removal in the Melbourne, Palm Bay, and Rockledge areas of Brevard County.
While some of the animals we remove are listed above. We do rat, bat, raccoon, armadillo and virtually every nuisance wildlife animal removal problem and trapping you can think of. Some of the areas we cover are listed below.
When squirrels invade homes, they live in attics, chimneys or hidden areas that are rarely accessed. The best way to capture them is by using live cage traps, which is the most humane way of dealing with nuisance squirrels. However, removing them is not enough. Homes should be made less squirrel friendly and favorable to keep them out for good.
This can be achieved by inspecting homes to identify and seal the areas that squirrels enter the house. They should be sealed with hard material that cannot be chewed off like a metallic mesh or plate. Chimneys should be covered with chimney caps and metallic meshes while other holes/spaces should be covered with metallic plates.
