Wildlife Trapping

Licensed Florida Wildlife Trapper

Living in Florida you know that wildlife is everywhere and it's more so a matter of when than if these critters are going to become a nuisance in your home / business. When these unwanted rodents invade your property you should not take matters into your own hands. Not only are there specific laws against trapping in Florida, some of these animals harbor diseases and can become extremely aggressive if they feel threatened. Rather than risk getting hurt or sick, hire an expert animal and wildlife control company.

Here at Rodent Solutions we adhere to the Florida Animal Trapping Laws as well as the Fish and Wildlife Commissions guidelines. We will remove the pesky rodents quickly and efficiently while ensuring the safety and integrity of the animal.

Animals such as raccoon, squirrels, opossums, and armadillos can create many problems around your home. When it comes to trapping these animals, it's a fairly simple process.


Do not attempt to poison or exterminate bats.

Bats are protected under Florida wildlife laws and it is illegal to willfully kill bats in Florida.

Don't just plug the holes.

A lot of people think they can cover the holes the bats are using at midnight to keep the bats from getting back in. All of the bats in a roost do not necessarily exit each night, and in Florida, bats have often been observed returning to their roost early in the evening, long before midnight.

Do not conduct a bat exclusion during the maternity season.

It is also illegal to conduct a bat exclusion during the maternity season, which in Florida is defined as April 16 through August 14. The maternity season is the period of time that mothers give birth to their young and nurture them to adulthood.

Even if bats are in an open area, attempts to capture them will likely cause them to flee into inaccessible places. Trapping bats as they exit a building does not work either because bats are frequently injured or die in the process of being captured and transported to a new location. Furthermore, bats moved to another location will almost always return to their old roost, even if it requires flying many miles. Trapping bats is illegal in Florida.
