Sanibel Captiva Wildlife Control

Sanibel Island and Captiva Island are a great example of man and wildlife living together successfully. There is a wide variety of wildlife that can be found on the island, including bobcats, raccoons, bats, lizards, alligators, iguanas, armadillos, rats, coyotes, river otters, wild pigs and squirrels just to name a few.
The Sanibel Captiva area plays host to the 6,400 acre Ding Darling Wildlife Refuse, its close proximity to the residential areas gives wildlife an opportunity to venture between the refuse and contact with humans outside the refuse.
Most residents of the island appreciate sharing their world with the beautiful wildlife that calls Sanibel Captiva their home. However, co-existing with wildlife doesn't mean you want wild animals inside your home, destroying your property or harming your pets. Our wildlife control methods are perfect for Sanibel Captiva because they are humane methods based, controlling wildlife without trapping, killing or relocating - area residents love what we do and how we do it.

Our Wildlife Removal Services

The plentiful water supply, thick foliage and warm temperate climate helps wildlife thrive on Sanibel Captiva, which means there is an abundance of wildlife - and sometimes that wildlife can cause a problem or two.

With little to hold wildlife back it is easy to see why the Sanibel Captiva area is densely populated with wildlife - and why residents frequently need our wildlife removal services. Bats, raccoons, snakes, squirrels, rats, mice lizards and iguanas frequently invade homes in the area.

Skunks and armadillos routinely tear up flower beds and damage lawns around Captiva and Sanibel Island. The devastating damage to the lawn in the photo below was done by skunks.

Larger wildlife like bobcats, foxes, coyotes and wild hogs often give residents a scare when they wander into area neighborhoods. Bobcats, foxes and coyotes have been known to prey upon pets such as cats and smaller dogs. And wild hogs can become aggressive if they feel they or their young are threatened. With respect to wildlife control, state regulations will dictate how or if we can remove larger animals such as this. However, we have methods we can employ to help discourage many kinds of larger wildlife from entering your property to start with.

Wildlife and residents have co-existed here for many years, and most people on the island wouldn't have it any other way. For many, co-existing means adapting when you can and humanely solving wildlife problems when you can't - and that's what The Wildlife Whisperer is all about.

As a matter of fact, we were one of the first companies in the country to practice truly humane wildlife control methods. Our humane methods of choice do not involve trapping, killing or relocating.

In most cases, animals are evicted without being harassed or trapped. We are able to do this by utilizing time proven techniques that allow animals to leave on their own accord. Once the animal is gone, we fix it so they can't come back. The wildlife disappears quietly into the night and new animals are discouraged from sticking around too.

The methods we use may sound simple, and in many ways they are, but there is still a required expertise and dedication that are necessary for the job to be done right. The process starts with identifying the animal that is at the root of the problem, then you need to know how many there are, where they are living and how they got in.

When it comes to determining where an animal came from and how they got in, it is important to understand the construction styles found around Sanibel and Captiva, and how those styles dictate which wildlife control method will work best in that particular situation.

For instance, homes with barrel tile roofs or stilts will be particularly vulnerable to wildlife. A knowledgeable professional can also look at the landscaping around a home and determine what might be at the root of the problem. We pride ourselves on our knowledge of area construction and landscape because we know how important that knowledge is when it comes to getting the job done, and getting it done right.

We've found our humane methods are not only the most effective, but they are usually the most affordable and long lasting too.

Exclusion has always been at the heart of what we do, we feel our experience is hard to beat when it comes to exclusion and prevention services. Proofing homes to keep bats out of the attic and making modifications to lanais to keep lizards, raccoons and other kinds of wildlife out are some of our favorite things to do.
