Protect Your Family and Home from Bats, Opossums, Snakes and More
Many types of wildlife, including bats, opossums and snakes, can seek food and shelter inside your southwest Florida home. While their presence is certainly unsettling, it can also present a danger to the health of your family and home.
Bat Removal & Control
Bats are nocturnal creatures that travel in colonies, and their large numbers can quickly cause problems for homeowners. They enter structures through spaces as small as a half an inch and often find their way inside via rooflines, chimneys, gables or vents, making attics a prime nesting location. Once inside, their extremely odorous droppings accumulate quickly and serve as a breeding ground for disease. Additionally, bats are known carriers of rabies and other insects like fleas and ticks. Following guidelines set by the Department of Natural Resources, Hughes Exterminators licensed bat control professionals in Tampa, Naples, Sarasota and Port Charlotte will remove the problem and seal off entry points for full bat exclusion your home.
Opossum Control & Removal
Opossums are the only North American marsupial (females have a pouch on their belly wherein they carry and feed their young). These nocturnal mammals can reach 24 inches long and weigh 10 pounds. They are excellent climbers and a threat to homeowners if they take up residence in your attic. They leave behind large droppings that carry various parasites and diseases and are also known to steal garbage and pet food and harass pets. Hughes opossum removal professionals have the experience to keep your home and family protected from these menaces from Tampa to Naples.
Snake Control & Exclusion
Snakes become more active in the summer months, and while most snakes are harmless and even beneficial to southwest Florida residents, finding them in your home or on your property can cause concern.
