During the past several years Petri has observed a growing need for wildlife removal services in South Florida. With new wildlife issues, such as iguanas and Africanized honey bees, on the up rise, and familiar problems with rodents, raccoons, and opossums still persisting Petri entered the wildlife market to better serve our existing customers as well as other South Florida homeowners and businesses.
The wildlife removal business in Florida consists mainly of the safe and humane removal of nuisance wildlife as defined by Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission as wildlife that causes or may potentially cause property damage, presents a threat to public safety, or causes an annoyance within, under, or on a building.
As with pest control service, wildlife removal services can vary greatly based on the type of nuisance wildlife, the extent of infestation and the level of service desired by our customer. In cases where wildlife has entered a structure, exclusion services including sealing and repairing entry points, is recommended to prevent continued entry by wildlife. Initial placement of ‘Havahart’ cages that humanely trap, but do not harm, wildlife followed up daily removal is general protocol for many wildlife issues.
Petri looks forward to continuing to handle our customers’ pest control, lawn care, and termite needs. And with the addition of wildlife services, Petri can now be there for customers on the occasion this need may arise.
