Nuisance Wildlife

Beavers

The beaver is the largest rodent found in North America. Adults can weigh up to 65 pounds and measure from 24 to 36 inches, plus a tail of 12 to 18 inches. With its webbed hind feet, water proof fur and unique paddle-shaped tail, the beaver is well-adapted to living in an aquatic environment.  Read more about Beavers...

Birds

Birds, though often nice animals, can be amongst the worst nuisance pest, especially for commercial property owners. Birds often choose to roost on signs or rafters of commercial buildings. This might not be so bad, except for the fact that they make a horrible mess with their nesting material, and even worse, droppings. Pigeon droppings in particular can really accumulate and are not only unsightly, but a health risk to your employees or customers.  Read more about Birds...

Coyotes

Coyotes

Coyotes are members of the canine family, which includes wolves, dogs and foxes. Adult coyotes weigh an average of 30 to 50 pounds, and are four to five feet long from head to tail. They are carnivores whose diet consists of rabbits, deer fawns, birds and various invertebrates. They also scavenge and can bring down larger prey in packs. They raise pups in dens, but seldom make their own. They possess exceptional senses of smell, sight and hearing, and can produce a distinct howl that we have all come accustom to.  Read more about Coyotes...

Iguanas

Iguanas are popular exotic pets in the United States, until they get too big or difficult to care for. Released iguanas have become established in parts of southern Florida and can be a nuisance to homeowners. The Green Iguana, Mexican Spiny-Tailed Iguana and Black Spiny-Tailed Iguana are the three most common invasive iguana species in Florida.  Read more about Iguanas...

Nine-Banded Armadillo

Opossums

Opossums are unique for several reasons. They are the only North American marsupials. Meaning they, like female kangaroos, have a pouch on their belly where the young are carried and nourished for a time after their birth. Opossums also have a prehensile tail, like monkeys, from which they occasionally hang. The word itself means “able to grasp.”  Read more about Opossums...

Skunks

Skunks are easy to recognize with their bold black and white coloring – and well – their recognizable stench. While most animals prefer camouflage, a skunk's distinctive coloration serves as a warning of its potent attack. Using special glands below the tail, skunks can spray their powerful scent up to 15 feet. This scent burns an attacker's eyes and causes temporary blindness. Of course, the stench is too much for most animals to bear, and serves as a strong warning against future attacks.  Read more about Skunks...
