Miami Wildlife Control

People are often surprised to discover they have wild animal issues within their urban habitat, however, conflicts between people and wildlife in urban environments is nothing new. This is particularly true in South Florida where cities provide the food, water and shelter an animal needs with an added warm, wet climate to provide wildlife with everything they need to thrive.
The Wildlife Whisperer, Inc. knows urban wildlife issues and the issues unique to the Miami habitat, including how to remove nuisance wildlife once they settle in, and how to proof structures and buildings so they don't get in to start with. Skunks in your trash, snakes in your grass, bats in your attic, raccoons in your home and mice in your walls - we know how to prevent it, fix it and clean it up.

The Miami Wildlife Habitat

Urban environments, such as Miami with its plentiful high rises, dense population and over six million residents, provides wildlife with the three main things they are looking for - food, water and shelter.

Most nuisance wildlife can adapt to just about any environment once their three needs are met. In cities, trash and dumpsters can be particularly inviting to rats, raccoons, opossums and other animals seeking an easy food source. There is also the food chain itself to consider. If rats are attracted to garbage in the dumpsters, then larger wildlife such as foxes, bobcats, snakes, coyotes and birds of prey will be drawn into the city to feed upon their natural prey.

An abundance of parking garages, lush landscaping, home attics and highrises, such as those found in Miami, offer animals plenty of places to hide, shelter and set up residence. Any cavity, overhang or simply the eaves of a building can provide a nice nesting area for bats, pigeons, birds and other animals.

Water is plentiful in cities as well, fountains, puddles, man made park ponds, and drainage ditches provide animals with the water they need.


Prevention And Control In Urban Miami-Dade

Some of the very things that make a city attractive to wildlife can also make problems easier to control. For instance, buildings can be proofed, repaired, adapted and constructed to make them less tempting and accessible to wildlife. It is easier to adapt a man made structure than it is to change a tree or natural resource. And trash and other food sources for animals can be managed too, cutting down on animals such as mice and rats that bring in the snakes, coyotes and foxes, goes a long way toward prevention. Water is a bit harder to control, but if food and shelter are eliminated the animal will have to move on - when it comes to food, water, and shelter, wildlife needs all three to thrive, water alone will not give them a reason to stick around.
