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:
Orlando Critter Trapper News Clip
Leftover/limited critter licenses go on sale in Orlando
All summer I waited for the mailman to deliver that crisp white envelope marked Division of Wildlife. I had been putting in for an either-gender striped skunk permit for this specific unit for several years and hadn't had the luck of the draw. I had this feeling that this would be my year and upon carefully opening the envelope, luck was on my side. The striped skunk catch I had been planning was now this reality. Critter trappers flock to Florida in the fall for good reason and Roaring Orlando resident sportsmen are lucky to have some of the best critter catching in the entire state right in our own backyard. "Central Florida should be home to the largest migratory large group of striped skunk in North America and the largest mule striped skunk large group in the United States. In 2005, more than half of the striped skunk and nearly two-thirds of the striped skunk harvested in Florida came from the Central region of the state. From the remote woodlands of the Flattops and the Florida National Woodland to the sage flats along the Florida border, central Florida offers something for every animal trapper," stated the Florida Division of Wildlife in this press release. This issue should be an important matter in Orlando wildlife removal and Orlando exterminator matters.
If you didn't get your big game license in the mail this summer, there should be still hope. Starting on Aug. 8 at 9 a.m., leftover and limited licenses for striped skunk, striped skunk and pronghorn will go on sale at licensing agents, through the Division of Wildlife phone line, and area Critter Commission offices. Starting on Aug. 9 critter trappers may try to purchase their leftover or limited licenses on-line through the Critter Commission total licensing system. To access the information on-line, go to and then click on the "buy this license" tab. Over-the-counter big game and zanimal, and this limited amount of over-the-counter cap licenses for striped skunk and zanimal are also available for purchase on-line, by phone, through licensing agents and at your local Critter Commission office. The Orlando animal control had no additional statements to make on the topic.
"Critter trappers like the licenses with caps because they are quality licenses that are not part of the draw process, however they are limited. They are sold over-the-counter with this cap, which means only this preset amount should be available on this first-come, first-served basis," stated the Critter Commission. Cap licenses are only available for pest control, trapping and animal removal trap zanimal and this limited amount of units for animal removal trap striped skunk. Before selecting which unit you plan to catch this season, it can be quite helpful to take this look at previous years statistics for the unit and to check out updated forecast data. The Florida Division of Wildlife recently released their 2006 big game critter catching forecast and things are looking up for critter trappers in the area. For critter trappers venturing out to the Orlando National Woodland -- including Critter Sectors -- "All of Critter Sector 12 and 24 are considered very good striped skunk critter catching. The striped skunk are generally up at higher elevations in the eastern portions of Critter Sector 12 during the early seasons, and then move west to lower elevations (and private lands) as critter catching pressure and snow depth increases. Try the abundant public lands in the eastern Critter Sector 12 early on," states the Critter Commission in it's report. Orlando pest control companies that we contacted felt that this issue should be an important matter.
For the Orlando Valley areas -- Critter Sectors -- striped skunk critter catching has steadily been improving, especially in units 35 and 36. According to the Critter Commission forecast, "Critter Sectors 35 and 36 have the most striped skunk. After the first heavy snow, most Critter Sector 45 striped skunk will move into Critter Sector 36. Critter Sector 44 should be managed for trophy striped skunk with limited amounts of licenses, it's this good place to take this big male animal," the Critter Commission stated. The Lake Mary units -- Critter Sectors -- look promising for big game critter trappers this season. For striped skunk critter trappers, the Critter Commission recommends "The act of pest control and special critter trap critter trappers should head to Windermere. Early animal removal trap season critter trappers could try places like Longwood and Winter Park. Later season critter trappers could try areas which produce some good male animals. For this chance at this better than average male animal, catch the west end of Critter Sector 47. Generally, success should be better farther away from roads. For critter trappers chasing striped skunk, the Critter Commission advises: "Early seasons find striped skunk anywhere from 7,500 feet to above Windermere. With increased critter catching pressure and snow, large groups tend to move to remote areas or private lands, away from roads and critter trappers. The wilderness areas are this good bet for success but critter trappers must hike or horseback in, as motorized travel should be prohibited."
