Florida Wildlife Trapping
One of the great things about Florida is our lovely weather year-round. The downside is that pesky critters enjoy the weather as much as we do. This means that many home and business owners are subject to wildlife issues throughout the year, as Florida wildlife generally doesn’t hibernate or hide out for frigid winter months. Depending on where a home or building is located, the wildlife issue will vary. Wildlife issues will be especially notable for those who live near wooded or less-developed areas.
Types of Wildlife
Floridians may encounter a number of different types of wildlife, including, but not limited to:
Wildlife Removal Techniques
Depending on the type of wildlife involved, the number of critters, and the scope of the problem, there are several ways to safely and successfully remove unwanted wildlife from a premises. There are two primary techniques used: exclusion and trapping. As suggested by the name, exclusion is the process of essentially blocking wildlife from entering the premises. Exclusion prevents the need for trapping by creating barriers that prevent the creatures from invading the territory.
Trapping involves physically detaining the wildlife and manually removing it from the premises. There are a number of ways that this can be accomplished in a way that’s both effective for the removal of the wildlife while still being safe and preventing them from being harmed. To ensure that the safest techniques and the highest success rate result, home and business owners shouldn’t attempt wildlife trapping on their own.
Tips for Homes and Yards
Here are some tips for home and building owners to help keep their premises wildlife-free:
- Keep your lawns and yards well-maintained and free from any debris or trash
- If you have fruit-bearing trees, pick up fallen fruit so that animals are not attracted
- Trim bushes, plants, and trees from the immediate perimeter of the home
- Clean underneath birdfeeders to prevent feeding opportunities for scavangers
