Comprehensive Florida Wildlife Control Services to
Home and Family
Wildlife Threats to your Family & Property:
Rodents and other pests (such as squirrels, raccoons, chipmunks and
bats) can easily enter a home through small cracks or openings.
Telltale signs that you've had an intruder include noises in the
attic or rodent droppings found in pantries, under baseboards or in
attics. These droppings can cause allergic reactions in humans and
may even lead to diseases including Hantavirus, a potentially
deadly disease. To best protect your health and property from
squirrels, rats and other home intruders, Arrow's licensed and
trained Gainesville wildlife pest control
professionals can offer the expertise you need.

Gainesville Raccoon Control (Exclusion &
Raccoons are primarily nocturnal mammals that feed on berries,
insects, fruit, chicken and small mammals. Although they live
mostly in wooded areas, they adapt extremely well to urban and
suburban environments where they often nest beneath decks or in
attics or crawl spaces to which they have gained access and where
they will raise their young.
Raccoons are known carriers of rabies and their droppings may lead
to fleas and other parasites. They are extremely adept with their
hands (such as opening garbage cans, removing siding, tearing off
shingles, etc.) and because they are a real threat to your health
and property, raccoon control service is crucial in protecting your
home and family from these nuisance pests.
Getting rid of raccoons in or around your Florida home may not
require raccoon extermination. Instead, Arrow's Gainesville raccoon
control specialists will trap and remove these critters via live
trapping methods. To keep raccoons from reentering your home,
our Florida raccoon exterminators will also perform
exclusions methods which entail using metal flashing, metal mesh to
cover any and all possible entry routes or in some cases
re-construction of the entry area.
Additional raccoon Florida wildlife control services include

Florida Opossum Control and
Opossums are the only North American marsupial (females have a
pouch on their belly where they carry and feed their young). Mature
possums are approximately two feet long and weigh ten pounds. They
are nocturnal mammals that are omnivorous, excellent climbers and
are known to act dead "play possum" as a defensive measure.
Opossums are a nuisance and threat to homeowners if they take
residence in attics because their large droppings carry various
parasites and diseases. They are also known to steal garbage, pet
food and harass pets.
Arrow's Boca Raton opossum control professionals have the
experience and knowledge in all types of wildlife control to keep
your home and family protected from opposums and other nuisance
pests. Call our Gainesville opossum removal
experts today for your free home evaluation.
Gainesville Squirrel Control &
If you hear noises in the attic, chances are you may have a
squirrel problem. As temperatures start to drop in the fall,
squirrels enter homes looking for warm surroundings and a place to
nest for the winter. Squirrel problems can be considerable for
homeowners. Not only can squirrels make holes in the exterior trim
or siding of your property from which they will gain entry, once
inside they can continue their destruction by gnawing on electrical
wiring that could potentially cause a short and even a fire.
Additionally, squirrels can be carriers of fleas and other unwanted
Getting rid of squirrels may not require Gainesville squirrel
extermination. Rather, our trained and licensed squirrel control
specialists will locate and seal off all open entry points that
will prevent squirrels from entering your home in the future. In
addition, our Gainesvile wildlife control
services include live trapping and removal.

Chipmunk Control & Removal:
Chipmunks are small, reddish brown ground squirrels that are
approximately five inches long and weigh about three ounces. They
are mostly active early in the morning or late afternoon, found
burrowing into the tunnel chambers they have built for storing
their food, caring for their young or resting. Their burrows can be
up to 30 feet in length and may be found adjacent to or under
sidewalks, steps, concrete patios and retaining walls. Their
elaborate tunnel system can cause significant structural damage and
may accumulate and divert rainwater toward your home, causing the
potential of water in the basement. Chipmunks are also an added
nuisance by causing damage to flower beds and vegetable
Getting rid of these nuisance pests may not require chipmunk
extermination. As an alternative, Arrow's nuisance wildlife control
specialists will perform exclusion methods to best ensure that
chipmunks won't enter your home. Our Gainesville chipmunk control
services may also include capture and chipmunk removal via Arrow's
live trapping methods.
Florida Bat Control &
Bats are nocturnal mammals that feed mostly on insects. Many
species travel in colonies and these large numbers can become a
real nuisance for property owners. Bats can enter dwellings through
very small openings (approximately ½ inch) and as such, are
commonly found in attics where entry has been made through holes in
roof lines, chimneys, gables or vents. Once inside their droppings
(guano) accumulate which can be extremely odorous and serve as a
breeding ground for disease. In addition, bats are known carriers
of rabies and other insects such as ticks and fleas.
Bat control and prevention will not require Gainesville bat
extermination services. Following the guidelines set forth by the
Department of Natural Resources, Arrow's trained and licensed bat
pest control professionals will seal off entry points to prevent
bats from reentering your home.
We offer additional bat control services to include removal of
soiled insulation, installation of new insulation as well as repair
