Wildlife Problems in Lake City​

With plentiful lakes, ponds, and wetlands, Lake City, FL, sustains a large wildlife population. In addition to natural wonders, the area provides food and shelter for animals in neighborhoods. Some pests have learned to seek out these resources, coming into conflict with people.

Reoccurring Bat Issues

Bats are creatures of habit. These animals often return to the same roosts in yards and homes unless property owners take steps to deter them. Since most Florida bat species can live between 10 and 12 years, an infestation is unlikely to go away on its own. State laws protect bats from undue harassment, so consult pest professionals for humane exclusion.

Squirrels Outdoors and Inside

Squirrels in Florida strip the bark from tree branches, which can leave lasting damage. The pests also climb along power lines to drop onto the roofs of Lake City homes. A squirrel will do whatever it takes to get into an attic, whether that means crawling through broken vent or enlarging holes in soffits and roofing.

Messy Raccoons

Raccoons benefit from urban development in Lake City because it gives them easy access to food. The pests' scavenging habits often put them at odds with residents, as a raccoon will tip over garbage cans, scatter trash across the yard, or damage gardens to reach a meal.

Other Pests in Lake City

Nimble climbers, roof rats prefer living high off the ground in areas like ceiling voids. When they come down to search for a meal, the animals contaminate surfaces and spread diseases through their waste. In Florida yards, armadillos create their own problems. The pests leave behind unsightly holes when they dig for insects.

Excellent customer service! Last week we realized a family of cute birds were nesting in our roof soffit. The nest was right above our deck, and they were getting aggressive with our dogs and us. A super friendly service coordinator answered the phone right away. She was able to get us scheduled for the next day. The tech showed up on time, in a freak April snowstorm! He quickly addressed the issue, thoroughly explained what he did and when he would be back. He showed up right on time again, made sure our squatting birds were gone for good and completed the permanent fix where they were accessing the soffit. Probably one of the easiest service calls we’ve ever had! Thank you!

We had a nuisance woodpecker driving us insane drumming on the metal chimney cap. We called Brittni and she provided detailed information over the phone as to estimated costs and methods used. She promptly followed up everything with a detailed email. Scheduling was easy. Terrance was on-time and very pleasant to work with. He inspected the chimney for damage and for evidence of nests = none found! He installed two deterrents and wa on his way! Highly recommend!
