Expert Wildlife Removal Services
In the dance of urbanization and nature, it’s often the wildlife that gets stepped on. This is where On Point Wildlife Removal Services steps in. We’re not just an animal control service; we’re a team that understands the intricate ballet of coexistence.
Our comprehensive approach to wildlife control is rooted in the respect for the animals we handle and the environments they inhabit.
Identifying Common Wildlife Problems
The initial stage of our process involves:
Comprehending the nature of wildlife
Spotting the signs of an infestation
Creating a removal plan tailored to each client’s specific needs
Identifying the type of wildlife
Assessing the damage caused
Understanding the reasons for their intrusion.
From the subtle scratch marks on your wooden furniture to the unmistakable odor of an unwanted guest, we interpret these signs to formulate a strategic plan of action, including odor control.
Customized Trapping Strategies
Just as each dancer has a distinct rhythm, each animal has its unique behavior. Therefore, a customized approach is needed to capture them. From the sneaky rats that prefer the cover of the night to the curious raccoons exploring your attic, our trapping strategies are customized to the habits and behaviors of each animal. This not only ensures the safe and humane capture of these creatures but also minimizes the potential damage.
Securing Entry Points
After the curtain falls on the removal process, it’s time to ensure an encore performance isn’t on the cards. We avert any potential future wildlife invasions by fortifying all possible entry points, making it difficult for them to gain access. As meticulous as a choreographer plotting every step, we inspect your property for gaps, holes, and unscreened ventilation areas that can serve as entry points for wildlife.
Each identified breach is then sealed off, turning your home from an open stage to a fortress against wildlife.
Types of Wildlife in Florida
Florida, with its diverse ecosystems, is a waltz of wildlife. From the stealthy rats to the flamboyant iguanas, each species presents unique challenges. Understanding these creatures, their habits, and the potential risks they pose is the first step in managing them effectively.
Rats, with their nimble bodies and nocturnal habits, are adept at sneaking into homes unnoticed. But what they lack in size, they make up for in damage. From chewing on wires, posing a fire hazard, to gnawing on building materials, compromising the structural integrity of homes, these stealthy creatures are more than just a nuisance.
Furthermore, they are carriers of several diseases, making their presence a potential health risk as they can spread diseases.
Bats, the aerial acrobats of the night, can create a unique set of problems when they decide to roost in human dwellings. Their droppings, or guano, can cause damage to insulation and create unpleasant odors, while their presence can disturb the peace of homeowners. Despite these challenges, we ensure to handle these creatures with care, respecting the local laws that protect them.
Raccoons, with their signature ‘mask’ and versatile behavior, can cause significant damage to properties. From impacting roofs and walls to wreaking havoc on gardens, their presence can be quite disruptive. Moreover, they are carriers of several diseases, further emphasizing the need for professional wildlife control.
Squirrels, including flying squirrels, while adorable to observe in nature, can create a host of issues when they invade our homes. Some of the problems they can cause include:
Gnawing through a variety of materials, leading to structural damage
Nesting behavior that can pose risks to the integrity of homes
Potential carrying of diseases
It’s important to address squirrel infestations promptly to prevent further damage and ensure the safety of your home.
Armadillos, with their distinctive armored shells, present a unique challenge. Their habit of digging burrows can lead to significant destruction, damaging lawns and undermining structures.
Despite their peaceful demeanor, they can cause considerable harm if not properly managed.
Snakes, the silent sliders of the animal kingdom, can pose potential hazards in residential areas. While they are not typically aggressive towards humans or pets, their bites can inject venom, causing serious harm. Understanding these creatures, their behaviors, and potential risks is essential in managing them effectively and considering snake removal when necessary.
Iguanas, with their vibrant colors and distinctive crests, can cause damage to properties in a variety of ways. From digging burrows that undermine sidewalks and foundations to causing damage to landscape and gardens, iguanas can be quite a nuisance.
The Risks of DIY Wildlife Control
The appeal of managing wildlife removal on your own can be misleading, as it often results in numerous complications, including a wildlife problem. From potential injuries and disease transmission to the risk of causing harm to the animals, DIY methods often pose more risks than benefits.
Moreover, without the proper knowledge and experience, these methods may not even solve the problem, leading to recurring issues.
Why Professional Help is Essential
Enlisting professional help isn’t solely about wildlife removal; it’s about ensuring the process is carried out appropriately. With their extensive training and experience, service technicians can:
Ensure the safe and humane removal of wildlife
Handle different species and situations
Use the necessary tools and equipment to minimize risk to both the animals and the residents.
Limitations of Wildlife Repellents
Wildlife repellents may seem like a quick and easy solution, but they often fall short in comparison to pest control. Their effectiveness can vary based on the species and environmental factors, and they might even harm non-target animals.
In contrast, professional wildlife removal services, including dead animal removal, use proven and effective methods that take into account the specific behaviors and needs of each animal.

Most Common Wildlife Removal in Brevard County
Nine Banded Armadillos
Armadillos are small mammals, known for their unique armor-like shell and notorious for their digging habits. One species in particular – the nine-banded armadillo – has made its way into the southern United States, which we see plenty of here in Florida.
The armadillo, is the only animal capable of rolling itself into a ball for protection. Armadillos prefer warm, moist climates, and thrive in forested areas and grasslands. Because they must dig for their food and shelter, they generally gravitate towards areas with loose, porous soil, which we typically ends up being somebody’s flower garden or back yard. Armadillos eat primarily insects, which account for about 90% of its diet.
Brevard and Indian River County are home to thirteen (13) species of bats that are either year round, or seasonal residents. All thirteen species of Florida bats are insectivorous (meaning they eat mosquitoes and other insects). Bat removal is a large task due to the amount of bats in Florida.
Some bats form colonies and some roost alone. There are also seven species of bats that have, on occasion, been found in Florida but they do not normally live here. These are referred to as accidental species. Three are from more northern climates and also eat insects. Four are from more tropical regions and feed on nectar, pollen and fruit. The latter have only been found in south Florida and the Florida Keys.
In an effort to access the refuge of chimneys or attics, raccoons may damage cable sheets and even tear up roof tiles. Stalks of vegetable plants might be broken and fruits or vegetables removed by raccoons. As the mammal loves eating corn corn farms might experience destruction. Raccoons have been known to dig through watermelon crops and scoop out the fruit with their paws. Chicken coops face danger in the aftermath of raccoon existence, as hungry raccoons can make their way indoors and destroy eggs, nests, and birds.
Habitat Female raccoons, known as sows, can build nests in chimneys, attics, garages, sheds, and buildings to elevate kits during the spring. A raccoon is fed or becomes more comfy living around humans when, it may attempt like entering houses through doors to raid flats for meals, moves.
There are two different, common, species of rat in the Melbourne area, luckily rat removal is the same. The Roof Rat, and the Norwegian Rat (or Norway Rat). The roof rat, is by far the most common rate we encounter, I would guess that about 80% of our calls are for rats, and every time people always as “why me”? While there are things you can do to lower your odds of attracting rats, a lot of it is just luck. Fortunately we are very good at rat removal in the Melbourne, Palm Bay, and Rockledge areas of Brevard County.
While some of the animals we remove are listed above. We do rat, bat, raccoon, armadillo and virtually every nuisance wildlife animal removal problem and trapping you can think of. Some of the areas we cover are listed below.
When squirrels invade homes, they live in attics, chimneys or hidden areas that are rarely accessed. The best way to capture them is by using live cage traps, which is the most humane way of dealing with nuisance squirrels. However, removing them is not enough. Homes should be made less squirrel friendly and favorable to keep them out for good.
This can be achieved by inspecting homes to identify and seal the areas that squirrels enter the house. They should be sealed with hard material that cannot be chewed off like a metallic mesh or plate. Chimneys should be covered with chimney caps and metallic meshes while other holes/spaces should be covered with metallic plates.
