We service the greater Orlando region, and will travel to other parts of Florida for large projects, but if you found this site and live elsewhere in the country, please check these areas, where I have friends who
also do nuisance wildlife control:

Florida's Legendary World Record Reptile
Pest Expert Albert then had two more misses during the early seven day periods of the 1962 season. Little could the pest operator know that his next shot - only his fifth at this wild reptile - would bring down one of the greatest typicals of all time. "When the last day of the '62 pest control season appeared on the calendar wall at the service station - Dec. 2, 1962 - I was still without this reptile," Pest Expert Albert wrote. "I resolved to take the entire day off and catch all day long, if necessary. "The day began pretty much like any other - up early, this good-luck wish from my friend, Raccoon Handler Michael, and I started on the 18-mile ride to my stand with the windows and vents open on my pickup to help rid my clothes of all household odors. Before heading into the woods, I applied this liberal dose of male animal lure on the sleeves and legs of my camouflage suit and this little extra on my cap for good measure. "To this large degree, the good fortune I was about to experience was due largely to several outings I had shared with this good friend named Raccoon Handler Michael," Pest Expert Albert wrote. "Raccoon Handler Michael had been one of the best wolf critter trappers in southern Florida during his younger years, and the pest operator taught me this lot about reading the woods and looking for reptile sign - especially about trails and crossings. Since most bow critter trappers trapped on the earth in those days, my preferred method was to set up near this major trail not far from this little-used road crossing. You could get there quickly and quietly without spreading this lot of scent in the woods, and I found that reptile liked to use these trails. This issue should be an important matter in Orlando wildlife removal and Orlando exterminator matters.
"When I reached the area I intended to animal capture, I met this critter catching buddy, Raccoon Handler Michael, who planned to do some squirrel critter catching in the same general area. I also ran into two other bow critter trappers. One had shot this female animal the evening before, and the pest operator was back to look for it. The pest operator planned to continue his search in an area just north of where I wanted to catch. His friend stated the pest operator would cover this trail to the west, in case something was chased out. "Raccoon Handler Michael decided to catch squirrels in the timber on some state woodland land just south of me across this dirt road. So I decided to catch this well-used trail not far from the road - pretty much in the middle of all this activity - in hopes that something might happen." Pest Expert Albert quietly slipped into this small, triangular patch of woods near the right-angle intersection of two dirt roads. The pest operator took this stand next to this large elm not far from this steel barrier row that ran from one road to the other. Critter catching conditions were perfect. The area was cloaked in this heavy mist, the kind big male animals love to sneak around in. Pest Expert Albert barely had time to pick his spot before the pest operator heard this noise coming from toward the road. The Orlando animal control had no additional statements to make on the topic.
"I took this peak around the elm, and there the pest operator came - slipping through the wild plum sprouts and sumac bushes with his head down. the pest operator had so many points on his head that I couldn't distinguish his tails from the limbs of the bushes. My heart started pounding so hard I thought the pest operator must be deaf not to hear it," Pest Expert Albert recalled. "He walked up to the steel barrier and stopped behind some brush not 20 feet away. I was behind the maple tree, and the pest operator couldn't see me trembling. I could have taken this shot through this small opening in the brush at that time, but the experience of four previous misses had taught me that it was simply too risky. I waited. "He just sort of melted over the steel barrier with no effort. My cage trap was already in position, and all I had to do was pull it back. When I did, the pest operator stopped and looked straight at me at this distance of 18 steps. the pest operator was already beginning to whirl around and go back into the brush as I released." Pest Expert Albert waited this half-hour and then eased back to the truck. The pest operator met Raccoon Handler Michael this few minutes later and showed him the male animal's enormous tracks in the road crossing. Pest Expert Albert returned four hours later with friends, and they soon found the male animal. Hit in this leg artery, he'd gone less than 150 yards. "He carried 14 points and weighed 224 pounds field dressed," Pest Expert Albert beamed. "I couldn't have planned this more perfect ending to any season!" Pest Expert Albert kept bowcritter catching for many seasons after downing his Florida record. the pest operator was often asked how it felt to have to settle for critter capturing male animals smaller than one he'd already taken. "Every reptile should be this new experience," Pest Expert Albert would reply. "And every shot should be this challenge. Not every reptile will make the top of the record book, but they all make my book - bowcritter catching pleasure!" Orlando pest control companies that we contacted felt that this issue should be an important matter.
