Duval County Jacksonville Exterminator Saint Augustine Jacksonville Pest Control

Jacksonville Raccoon Control & Removal

Jacksonville Bay Raccoons: The bay area is full of raccoons! These cute critters, once confined to wild wooded areas, now live in very high densities in cities, particularly in Florida. They eat out of garbage cans, dumpsters, they steal pet food, and some people feed them on purpose. The result is that Jacksonville has a serious raccoon population problem. These intelligent, strong, and crafty critters can cause all sorts of problems. First and foremost, they commonly live inside attics. Usually it's a female raccoon who is pregnant - she rips open a hole in your roof or eaves, enters the attic, and sets up a den inside. She also poops, pees, rips insulation and wires, etc. She raises the young there, and they make a big mess. We humanely remove all of the baby raccoons, and trap and remove the mom, and relocate them all together. We don't want to hurt raccoons, we just want them out of your house. Once they are gone, we clean up the mess they've left behind and repair the damage they have caused.   

We also do general raccoon trapping for problem raccoons in your yard, under your shed, pooping in your poop, tipping over your garbage cans, etc. Raccoons cause all sorts of problems, and we can safely trap and remove any raccoon in Jacksonville that is causing trouble.

One of our customer cases:

I do not live in Orlando but Jacksonville. Please, spare some time and help me with some advice.

I have lived in the same apartment for 2 and half years. When I first moved in, I heard noises and I thought it was squirrels. Shortly after, the weather turned warm, and I heard nothing for a long while. The next year, the noises came back. One night, I poked my head up through the attic entrance hole and upon shining a flash light around, I saw two raccoons. I reported the problem to the apartment complex and they said they would take care of it. But, nothing ever happened.

When it came time to sign a lease again, I brought up the raccoon problem and they assured me they would take care of it. Now, a year later, the problem still exists and it is worse. A small hole developed in the ceiling where the material has become soft. I guess it is from the urine and feces. I noticed the hole when I heard something dripping down onto the floor. I couldn't believe what I was seeing. It was raccoon pee. I tried to plug the hole but a few nights later, it was slightly larger and I found a piece of raccoon feces on my floor. It had fell through hole, which is about the size of a half dollar. I got a piece of thick cardboard and thumb-tacked it into the ceiling. I only have a month left on this lease.

In your knowledge of this kind of thing, is the apartment complex in danger of getting into trouble or possibly being fined for not taking care of this problem. I have asked them for a refund of my rent because they agreed to fix the problem and then ignored it. If they do not wish to refund, I asked them to move me to a new apartment and provide a year's free rent to make this situation right. Do you know if there is any organization that I can contact that would put pressure on them to make things right for me? Or, if I told on them to someone like the Department of Health and Human Services, would the apartment complex be in danger of getting into a lot of trouble or getting fined? If it is not the Dept. of Health and Human Resources, then who should I contact for help in this matter? Do you have suggestions?

If you can provide any helpful advice, I would appreciate it. I feel like any good company and, or manager would make this right for me; especially since I am now telling them that may take legal action for a refund and that I am also considering speaking to all of the news organizations in Birmingham, Alabama about the way they have ignored this and allowed me to be in a potentially hazardous environment. I would appreciate any information or advice that you can provide.

Thanks!! Eric

Tell the apartment that you are serious, and that it is a health hazard and that there will be repercussions if they don't help. If they still don't help in a week or so, call the department of health and everyone else you can - the local news is great at getting lazy apartment owners to get off their ass.  If you need to hire someone, call WRS Jax, at 904-677-5812
