Orlando is famous as a tourist destination due to its proximity to Disney World. This world-famous resort is actually a good 20 minutes to the south of downtown Orlando, which is a normal Florida metropolitan area, filled with the normal sorts of wildlife that fill FL. The city's nickname is "The City Beautiful", and its symbol is the fountain of Lake Eola in downtown. Orlando is filled with lakes and ponds. Some of the neighborhoods include Airport North, Azalea Park, Baldwin Park, College Park, Colonialtown, Conway, Delaney Park, Lake Davis / Greenwood, Lake Eola Heights, Metrowest, Thornton Park, and the Tuskawilla area. The most common animal that I deal with is probably the roof rat (rattus rattus), but I also deal with many raccoons, opossums, and snakes. I am an expert at dead animal carcass removal from inside homes, and I am also a bat colony removal specialist, operating across the entire state of Florida.
Orange County Wildlife Removal Tip:
Rodent Feces: Risks Of Disease? - Rodent feces in your home carry various health risks. If you find rodent feces, you should immediately take the necessary steps to remove it, disinfect and sanitize the entire area. Rodent droppings look different than mouse droppings, so you should know how to differentiate between the two to identify the exact problem. Rodent droppings are bigger than mouse droppings and are darker in color. Think of a bean to indicate size. Rodent droppings will also be found in areas in your home near the entry and exit point.
As soon as you find rodent feces, clean the area right away. If you don't there is a risk, not only will the smell become potent, but diseases such as leptospirosis or Salmonella and other bacteria can spread through the air. Before you begin cleaning, make sure that you are wearing gloves, a HEPA respirator mask and a Tyvek suit. It is crucial that you prevent yourself from exposure. You don't want to accidentally touch the feces if you are not wearing gloves, and a mask will prevent you from breathing in the harmful smell. Use a filter vacuum to effectively remove the feces, since the droppings are small pellets that will take too long to remove by hand. Nesting materials will probably need to be removed by hand.

Animal Control - Dangerous Dog Law Forbids Yard Chaining During Day
Orlando, Fla. -- A new law in Orange County, Fla., makes it illegal to chain dogs in yards between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., according to a Local 6 News report. For more information, call the animal services of Orlando, Florida.
The law is in response to some vicious dog attacks, including a pit bull mauling that killed 4-year-old Myles Leakes in Central Florida. No tickets have been issued for violators of the new law but deputies want to get the message out that it will be enforced. Orange County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Florida wildlife problems.
"We really heard the citizens say Orange County needs to do more to protect us and that is our mission, to protect the citizens and the animals of Orange County," Orange County animal services spokeswoman Vanessa Bord said. Animal and carcass removal services in Orange County is dedicated to helping Florida and Orlando.
Residents are being encouraged to bring dogs indoors or build kennels and fences rather then just chaining dogs in yards. Animal services may help people who cannot afford to build kennels with grant money, according to the report.
Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call 407-836-3111, and if you need wildlife removal service in Orange County, call Nuisance Wildlife Rangers: 407-278-2705.
