Wildlife Identification & Prevention

What are wildlife?

Animals that live outside, without the help of people, are called wildlife. Wildlife are more than capable of finding their own sources of food, water, and shelter. However, as the habitats of wild animals and humans have come to overlap, many species of wild animals have discovered that our Florida properties offer them easy access to food, water, and shelter.

Some regular pest visitors to our Tampa yards and sometimes our homes include:

  • Bats
  • Birds
  • Ducks
  • Feral cats
  • Opossums
  • Raccoons
  • Skunks
  • Squirrels
  • Wild Hogs

Are wildlife dangerous?

Any wild animal has the potential to be dangerous to your health or the structure of your home. Wild animals are common carriers of diseases and parasites that can make people ill. When wild animals are cornered or feel threatened, they may become aggressive and bite or scratch; bites from wild animals are prone to infection. Wild animals can cause other problems like damaging your lawns and gardens and constantly overturning garbage cans and recycling bins.

If any wildlife finds a way into your home, they can damage wiring and cables, dig through insulation, and contaminate your home with their excrement. Wild animals searching for food and safe shelter may also resort to making their own entrances and exits into your house, damaging siding, windows, and chimneys in the process.

Why do I have a wildlife problem?

Any property that offers food and shelter is a place that wildlife can make into their home. Wildlife can become a problem on any property, whether in a rural or urban area. Wild animals live in large numbers in wooded areas, fields, marshes, meadows, and near bodies of water; properties near those kinds of habitats are most likely to have problems with wildlife intruders. Things that attract wildlife our yards include open trash cans, fruit trees, gardens, outdoor eating areas, pet food, bird feeders, dense vegetation, and yard debris.

Where will I find wildlife?

Sheltered areas in our yards are places where wild animals will burrow, nest, and rest. Tree stumps, overgrown shrubbery, ground holes, ground cover, trees, and spaces under decks, sheds, and foundations are excellent examples of places where wild animals take cover in our yards. While wild animals are typically a problem outside in our yards, they will sometimes move into our homes seeking a dark, quiet place to have their young, escape harsh weather, or forage for food.

Typical hiding spots for these intruders include chimneys, attics, roof eaves, wall voids, and crawl spaces. Wild animals also regularly invade and cause damage inside garages, sheds, barns, and other outbuildings.
