The most common nuisance wildlife that we deal with here in the Jacksonville area is the Roof Rat. Many of the houses here have barrel tile roofs, and these rats are able to take advantage of the small gaps that these roofs cause in the architecture, leading into the attic. Colonies of bats also roost under these tiles. Raccoons and squirrels are also very common pest critters that frequently invade the attics down here. We humanely trap and remove these animals, and we permanently solve your problem by identifying and sealing shut any and all critter entry points into your home. We do the job correctly and completely the first time, guaranteed!

Wildlife Trapping: We are expert critter trappers, and we are very humane to wild animals. We trap them in live cages and relocate them. We make sure that we arrive at your house immediately to remove the trapped critters, so that they don't suffer. Successful trapping relies upon many subtle factors, from the right trap, the right bait, location, and a host of other very important factors. Most of the time, we are bolting traps to the roof or to entry holes to ensure 100% success in trapping the target animals only.

Jacksonville Bird & Bat Control: Bird and bat control are specialty projects. While we do certainly perform these services on residential homes, some of these projects are very large and complex commercial projects. We can safely remove a huge colony of bats from a building, without harming any, and completely bat-proof the building 100%. As for pesky birds, such as pigeons, we install bird exclusion devices that will keep your structure bird-free for good. We can also provide pigeon trapping.

Rat & Mouse Control: We are experts at Florida rodent control. We do it the correct way - we don't just throw some poison in your attic on a monthly basis. This will not solve the problem! We solve it permanently, usually in little more than a week, and you'll have no more rats or mice, guaranteed. We solve the root of the problem by sealing shut any and all areas that rodents can use to enter your house. We trap and remove them all, and you are spared the never ending cycle and dead rat stink that comes with poison.

We provide professional pest animal control for all of greater Jacksonville, FL including all of Duval County, Clay County, St. Johns County, and Nassau County. We service the towns of St. Augustine, Palm Coast, Ponte Vedra Beach, Intracostal, Northside, Southside, Westside, Amelia Island, Fernandina Beach, Mayport, Neptune Beach, Atlantic Beach, Jacksonville Beach, Ponte Vedra, Mandarin, Orange Park, Riverside, Avondale, Julington Creek, Fruit Cove, Ft.
