Nuisance Wildlife Control
Seasons in Daytona Beach, FL, fall into one of two categories: hot and wet or warm and dry. These conditions make it easy for wildlife pests to remain active all year. Unfortunately, many enjoy the environment of popular neighborhoods and live both outdoors and in homes.
Q&A with Local Franchisee Jody O'Dell:
What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?
Most common nuissance wildlife is roof rats, then raccoons.
How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?
Breeding and birthing seasons have stretched out to nearly year-round, with a lull in middle of the summer, although we occasionally see baby raccoons in the summer.
Any prevention tips for residents in your area?
You can't keep animals off your roof, but you can keep them out of your roof. If it's vulnerable, and 8 out of 10 roofs are, there will be a rat in it. It's never too late to protect it.
When should homeowners call Critter Control?
Don't wait until you hear an animal in your ceiling. Most people won't even hear the animal. Sometimes when you finally hear an animal in the attic, the attic is already compromised.
Wildlife Problems in Daytona Beach, FL
Daytona Beach residents may see three common squirrel species in their backyards. Gray and fox squirrels, active during the day, disturb the peace by chattering with each other and nesting in attics. The third variety, the southern flying squirrel, is nocturnal. Scratching sounds coming from an attic or crawl space at night may suggest an infestation.
Raccoons in Daytona Beach
The warm climate and mild winters in Daytona Beach, FL, make it an ideal place for pests to live year-round. Raccoons are common in the area and often cause problems for residents. These animals dig through garbage, creating messes in yards and city centers. As a carrier of rabies, a raccoon may also put people at risk for contracting the disease.
Because the climate in Daytona Beach is consistently warm, bats thrive in this city. Colonies roosting in houses greatly increase health risks for residents. The pests often nest in attics or walls, where a buildup of bat feces causes unpleasant odors and may cause the spread of diseases like histoplasmosis.
Outdoor Nuisances in Daytona Beach
Though neither foxes nor rabbits typically force their way into homes, they often cause issues outside. A rabbit can damage trees and pick through gardens until there's nothing left. The pests also attract foxes. Though this predator avoids conflict with people, a fox may dig under fences or sneak into poultry houses to prey on small livestock.
