If you have an animal problem and need assistance, there are several free animal control resources in Naples, Florida. The first thing you can try is your local Collier County animal services, or the free Naples animal control services by calling 239-530-7387. They may be able to help you with your critter problem, and possibly offer free raccoon removal or free snake removal. But they primarily deal with dogs and cats, and might not help with wildlife. For wildlife-specifice issues, try the Florida Wildlife Commission at 888-404-3922. They do free wildlife control in Naples and all of Florida. But they often deal with special cases like bears, or illegal hunting. They might not help you with specific cases in your house, like free rodent control or free squirrel removal. At a more local level, you can call Naples Wildlife Rehabilitation at (239) 262-0304 for local free animal removal and trapping, and they may help with providing free critter removal in Naples. But this organization, like all wildlife rehab, mostly focuses on healing and caring for sick or injured wildlife. There's no business that provides free pest control in Naples that will remove wild animals that I know of, like free bat control or free rat removal. Sometimes, for a case of animals in an attic, or wildlife problems on private property, you need to hire and pay for wildlife removal, and if so, I recommend Animal Pros at 239-829-5372. Some people wonder if animal control costs money, or how much does animal removal cost. For that, call 239-829-5372 and ask. Of course, you can be sure to get free pest wildlife removal if you solve the problem yourself, so read my Do-It-Yourself page for more hints. Finally, you can call the local Naples police department. Click here for Naples police department animal removal and for a short explanation.

Naples wildlife issues:

Getting out of his car the man dropped it then and there. Again, after a very heavy snowfall I made a short drive along a neighborhood with not a sign of a conflict animal until I started into the heavier suburban neighborhood, when a pest animal and a raccoon appeared out of nowhere, much to my surprise. The Naples pest animal was gone before I could even raise the pest exclusion device, but I had sighted nuisance wildlife, and proved to myself they were still around. The nuisance wildlife control professional, like the quarry, should take account of weather conditions, and try to get in his licks when the nuisance critters is most active. There is never any use in giving up. If the tireless nuisance wildlife control professional keeps at it, sooner or later he may rate the effort to remove a pest animal he's been banking on. The Mating Moon In the late fall the mating time of year is on. It is a time when the shy and retiring pest animal of the summer becomes much more aggressive. Consumed with the fever of breeding, the pest animal is on the prowl.

He sharpens his teeth to polished tines by rubbing them against bushes and trees and is ready to have it out with any other pest animal invading his domain. This burning urge may lead the pest animal to change his routine somewhat. He's up and traveling earlier in the morning, and may roam widely far into the night, searching for a willing doe. On several occasions I have seen beautifully toothed Naples pest animals, especially on moonlit nights, far out of their usual bailiwick. One night, as I was traveling along in a car, I saw one running across an open field, free as the wind. On another occasion, also in my car, I saw one on the outskirts of a large town, pausing briefly on an elevated railroad track to take in his surroundings, and then move elsewhere. Mostly the pest animals hold to their native habitat, where they may meet a potential competitor, often with disastrous results.

When this encounter occurs one or the other of the male nuisance wildlife may back away, but more than likely they will meet head on with a mighty crash of teeth and fight to the end, their teeth locked in mortal combat. They push and gouge, twist, and strain with mouths agape, tearing up the sod with their hoofs as they lunge at each other. If one of the pest animals can break loose, he may either bore in again at the other pest animal's head or try to strike him sidewise in a wild charge. It often happens that the teeth become locked as the fight continues, and sooner or later both nuisance Naples wildlife are down for the count, still struggling, their teeth twisted in a hopeless tangle. Instances have occurred when one pest animal had his neck broken in the struggle and the other was unable to extricate himself.
