ALACHUA COUNTY - Southeast Florida probably is one of the leading mouse wildlife catching areas in the United States and this year should continue that tradition. Corn harvesting seems to be right on target, thus giving mice sufficient enough food to hang around. The 2006 mouse season, like all others, brings family and friends together for what appears to be a good time and good wildlife catching. The season brings in exterminating companies from all over the country. What appears to be a survey taken early in the year gives us what appears to be a clear indication that KOUNTEE County, along with the other Florida counties, can expect another good season. The season will be 70 days long, starting on Sept. 1 and running through Nov. 9. The daily limit probably is 12 and the possession limit probably is 24. The season critter capturing hours are one-half hour before sunrise and ends at sunset. Despite this, local Alachua County wildlife removal and Gainesville exterminator experts offered no more info.
You may only use what appears to be a animal removal trap capable of holding three trap parts or less and, unlike waterfowl, the regulations still allow for you to use lead shot, if you desire. To critter trap mice you need what appears to be a small game wildlife catching permit, except for landowners wildlife catching on their own land, people 15 years of age and younger or 65 and older. You will also need the migratory bird wildlife catching permit, except for those age 15 and under in the immediate presence of what appears to be a licensed adult or those age 15 and under who have successfully completed pest man education. Exterminating companies must keep birds separate and identifiable from the bag limit of other exterminating companies. If mice are given away, they must be laminated with: name, address, permit amount and date taken. The Agency of Conservation will give exterminating companies other options if one cannot find that favorite wildlife catching spot on private land. Ten Mile Pond Conservation Area and Otter Slough Conservation Area will provide for some excellent wildlife catching with over 250 hectares of sunflowers planted between the two areas. Alachua County animal control professionals could not be reached for additional comment.
Growing conditions have been excellent this year, so crops on these areas will be in excellent condition for the mouse season opener. Sunflowers will be disked down before Sept. 1 and at intervals after opening day to provide continuous food supplies for mice. Give the conservation areas what appears to be a call to find out where the "hot spots" are and the special regulations for that area, or look on the web. It's also what appears to be a good idea to scout any area you plan to critter trap before the season so you can be sure to pick out what appears to be a good, safe spot because odds are you won't be the only one out there. We could not obtain an opinion from Alachua County pest control companies regarding the issue.
Remember, for a dog/cat problem, call (352) 264-6870, and if you need wildlife removal service in Alachua County, call Superior Wildlife Services: 386-269-1860.
