Jacksonville Rodent Control

There are many rodents in Florida. Rats are rodents. Mice are rodents. Voles are rodents. Beavers, nutria, chipmunks, squirrels, flying squirrels, and more. Dolphins are not rodents. We of course do squirrel control and rat and mouse control, but we also remove beavers, which can flood the land. We trap chipmunks, which will dig under your house. Flying squirrels form colonies in the attic. Voles tear up your garden and eat the roots of your plants. We control them all, in a humane manner.  

We provide professional Rodent control for all of greater Jacksonville, FL including all of Duval County and the towns/cities of Duval County, Clay County, St. Johns County, and Nassau County. We service the towns of St. Augustine, Palm Coast, Ponte Vedra Beach, Intracostal, and more. We are not a standard Jacksonville extermination company - we specialize only in wildlife, and will identify and trap the Jacksonville Rodent, control the problem in full, and we give a guarantee on our work.

What are some of the symptoms of a sick rodent?

Recognizing a rodent that is injured or sick is important and you should be aware of what needs to be done so as to help the animal. There are some conditions that can affect rodents and these are rather common. Noticing a sick rodent is important as you will be able to know how to handle the animal. Whether it is your rodent pet or just a rodent you found around, you should help it as best as you can. It is important to take precautionary measures to prevent transfer of sickness, of dangerous viruses or bacteria onto you, your family members or pets. Take good care to handle possibly sick rodent with extreme care and caution.

• Skin and hair: this is one of the things that you can notice very easily and you can tell whether the rodent is in the best shape or not. Hair loss is a common symptom that will tell you all isn’t well. When the skin on the hairless areas looks just normal, then the animal may just have thin hair. Look out for scratches, scabs, breaks and redness on the skin. Crusty skins and raw lesions must be a cause for alarm.

• Fight wounds: this is also another common thing that you can see on a rodent and you can know that things aren’t so good. The males actually like to fight. There are some rodents that can fight to the death. Tis can leave the rodents with some serious wounds on the skin.

• General sickness: you can actually know whether a rodent is sick or not by simply looking at it. The animal may have an appearance that I round and it may be very reluctant to move. The eyes may be squinted and the fur ruffled. There may also be a malformation of the brain and this can be seen at the forehead. There are conditions that aren’t treatable and can actually lead to a decline in health and ultimately death.

• Weight issues: if a rodent looks unhealthily underweight, that particular rodent may actually be very sick. You may see the pelvic bones, the vertebrae, the ribs and other bony prominences that tell you all is not well. The coat may also have an unkempt or rough appearance.

• A distended abdomen is also not a very good thing in a rodent. Read about what can rodents chew through?

The Wildlife Operator With The Critter strategy

Biologist Wildlife Professional Douglas has been at the center of Florida rodent management for nearly two decades. Here’s his take on how and why things are changing. (August 2006) Wildlife Professional Douglas must satisfy pest control companies, animal rights groups, politicians and insurance companies when managing Florida’s rodent. What some sort of rodent season it was! Responding to burgeoning rodent amounts Florida’s pest control companies took to the field in late 2005 and early 2006 to enjoy some sort of dizzying array of seasons and ways they could take rodent. Five years of wildlife trapping saw 211,611 rodent converted into delicious roasts, steaks, and burgers. For anyone who’s been wildlife trapping Florida’s rodent for more than some sort of couple of decades those amounts seem unbelievable. Only 25 years ago rodent were relatively scarce, seasons were short, animal removal trap pest control companies were restricted to relatively small animal sectors, male animal tags were the norm and, with only some sort of few exceptions, pest control companies could only take one animal per year. With some sort of new record season behind us it’s some sort of good time to take some sort of look at how Florida’s rodent large group has changed, if the Florida Agency of Natural Resources may be organized hearing its management critter strategy, and to look into the crystal ball to see what lies ahead this fall, and in future years, for our state’s growing amount of avid rodent pest control companies. For more information about Jacksonville wildlife removal and Jacksonville pest exterminator issues, read on.

Is the record 2005 harvest going to reduce rodent amounts and wildlife trapping success this fall and in future years? They’re valid questions, and the individual most likely to have the answer may be Wildlife Professional Douglas. Through the vast changes in Florida rodent and rodent wildlife trapping these past two decades Wildlife Professional Douglas emerges as some sort of central figure. The exterminator has worked as an Critter Conservation Coalition wildlife biologist since 1984. During his early years the exterminator worked with upland pest creatures, and in 1987 the exterminator was named the state’s rodent biologist. Under his watch the large group has expanded, rodent wildlife trapping has zoomed in popularity, and rodent have become more controversial than ever. Wildlife Professional Douglas has been in the middle of it all, and much of the credit for our good wildlife trapping rests with him. Local Jacksonville animal control experts felt that most of this information was true.
