About The Wildlife Whisperer

The Wildlife Whisperer's methods, philosophy and mission statement were developed by founder Ned Bruha, and are the result of years of experience working directly with wildlife, and a desire to find cost-effective, long term solutions that are beneficial and kind to both clients and wildlife. We are proud to bring these methods to the residents of Cape Coral, Pine Island, Boca Grande, Fort Myers, Captiva, Sanibel, and most of Southwest Florida.

The Wildlife Whisperer recently moved to Florida because of the state's unique wildlife situation. Florida is more in need of ways to co-exist utilizing cost-effective, humane wildlife control methods than perhaps any where else in the US. Many of the native species are protected, and some non-native, invasive species would be impossible to eradicate by any method.

In Florida, co-existence is not a preferred option, it is the only option.

Our Mission As A Wildlife Control Company

As Ned Bruha progressed in the wildlife control business he quickly realized the importance of humane methods and proper repairs and modifications to prevent future issues.

This is what sets The Wildlife Whisperer apart from its competitors - the desire to provide services that are truly humane while helping our clients save money by preventing problems in the future.

When it comes to choosing the right company, there is a lot to research first, but you will find that our credentials and accolades are hard to beat.

Our Mission Statement

"To utilize, improve, elevate and advocate cost effective, eco-responsible wildlife damage remediation and prevention methods allowing humans and wildlife to co-exist without conflict."

The Wildlife Whisperer intends to "raise the bar" for wildlife control methods and standards, encouraging the general public and the industry to utilize wildlife removal methods that do not hurt animals or pocketbooks as much as repeatedly trapping vs. fixing the root problem.

With the help of social media, and the news coverage and awards that The Wildlife Whisperer has received, Bruha has been able to share his story and bring his message to millions around the world.

Getting To The Root Of The Problem

The root problem is typically going to be the three big wildlife attractants: food, water and shelter. If you eliminate or alter one or more of those three things correctly, wildlife problems disappear naturally.

Do you really want to pay a wildlife control company to repeatedly trap auto-replenishing wild critters?

Those animal damage repairs may be more intensive than you realize.

You have choices - a temporary solution for that raccoon or the bats in your attic, the skunk under your deck, opossum under your shed or rats in the crawl space - or a long term solution.

Our work provides a permanent and guaranteed solution for all your wildlife problems.

Fast Response

When most individuals have wildlife problems they need help fast, our team knows this and we strive for hard to beat response times, and do our best to be there for you when emergencies occur.

How Our Philosophy Developed

Years ago, Ned Bruha started "Bruha's Nuisance Wildlife Control, Inc." before he deployed to Afghanistan. In the beginning, Bruha set live cage traps for squirrels, raccoons, opossum, skunks, rats and other animals invading sheds, decks, crawl spaces and attics. Bruha would point at the hole that the wild animal critter was using and tell the client "you need to get that fixed". Because he was so busy trapping and relocating animals, he would refer the repairs to a local handyman.

As time went on, Bruha realized that he continually had to go back to the same homes and businesses and trap more wildlife all the time, so he started doing repairs for his clients. One of the repairs was a type of barrier that kept animals from digging under foundations and sheds, called a "hardware cloth bury". Bruha tore his shoulder in 9 different places doing this hard work, and could no longer easily do all of the ladder lifting. At the same time, Bruha realized that trapping and relocating the wild animals and critters was not only not truly helping his clients, but it was bad for the animals due to research proving such.

With Bruha's torn shoulder and excitement to expand the business after getting back from an Army deployment, Bruha hired his first employee and changed the name of the company to The Skunk Whisperer, Inc.

"The Skunk Whisperer" started as a nick-name, but because the business no longer focused primarily on trapping animals as part of the company's nuisance animal solutions, friends and clients encouraged Bruha to change it to that permanently. Eventually we moved the business to Florida, and since the variety of animals there was so broad we decided to make the name "broader" too, and today we are known as The Wildlife Whisperer. An evolving name that has changed some over the years, but our dedication to our clients and the humane methods we use to help them, that has and always will stay the same.
