Wildlife Problems in Sarasota

A low-key community with waterfront access and an independent way of life, Sarasota, FL, is desirable to both residents and wildlife. Four species of venomous snakes call the area home, including diamondback and pygmy rattlesnakes, cottonmouths, and coral snakes. The pests are attracted to backyard brush piles and can become aggressive if startled. Another frequent visitor to yards and gardens, armadillos in Sarasota dig up lawns while searching for insects. The holes they create can be up to five inches wide and three inches deep. Armadillos also uproot plants and weaken driveways or patios by burrowing underneath.

Able to squeeze through gaps as small as three-eighths of an inch, bats sometimes make their homes in Sarasota attics and tile roofs. In addition to making disturbing squeaking, scratching, and fluttering noises, their droppings create bad smells and unsanitary conditions. Some people might even suffer from respiratory problems or the disease histoplasmosis as a result. Woodpeckers are even less subtle when they damage homes. The pests loudly peck at gutters, drains, and siding, which not only causes disruptive noise but also property damage.

Q&A with your local branch manager:

What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?

The most common wildlife issue that we encounter is by and far black rats (also known as roof rats or palm rats) living in yards, on roofs, and particularly in attics. Your risk increases as you are closer to town, if you have a tile roof, and if you have a broken up roof design. Rats contaminate insulation, damage duct work, water lines, and electrical lines, as well as harbor disease.

Other very common pests include but are not limited to: snakes, raccoons, africanized honey bees, armadillos, woodpeckers, and bats. Armadillos are particularly troublesome, as they burrow into the foundation of many homes and cause erosion.

How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?

Elsewhere in the nation, seasons play a large role in determining the different behaviors of the various potential uninvited guests. However, in South Florida, we are fortunate enough to have a nonexistent winter. Therefore, the critters do not adhere to firm yearly cycles, and tend to cause problems every month of the year.

Any prevention tips for residents in your area?

The best prevention advice that can be offered is awareness. If you hear a noise in the attic, don’t dismiss it as a normal creak or pop of the roof vents. Very often customers suspect that they may have an issue and then dismiss it because the noises cease. The rats or raccoons are almost certainly still around, whether you hear them or not. When in doubt, or when purchasing a new home, be sure to set up an inspection with one of our wildlife specialists.

When should homeowners call Trutech?

Call us immediately if you so much as slightly suspect that you may have a nuisance pest. Very often, if caught early, the cost to remedy the issue is minimal. If the problem persists, it can become much more involved to solve the problem. Remember, activity begets more activity. Stopping an infestation early can save hundreds or even thousands of dollars in damage.
