Florida Wildlife Trappers | Nuisance Wildlife Removal

FWT - Central Florida's #1 Wildlife Trapper

We don't mean to brag, but we have a reputation for outstanding customer service, professional trappers, and being the go-to trapper when there is a nuisance wildlife issue for a reason.  We believe the #1 reason we have this reputation is because we care. We care about you, your property, and protecting it.  We also care about the animals, and what happens to them and protecting their habitats.  Our #1 goal is to help you solve your nuisance wildlife and rodent control issues quickly and effectively, while doing everything we can to support local wildlife and animal rescues that are able to rehabilitate sick, injured or immature animals.  We are leaders in our industry and we are proud that we are able to have such an impact on our communities.

Take a few minutes to check out some of the rescues we partner with.  In addition, we also have community partners that are doing amazing things in their own communities and around the world to support both wildlife and marine sanctuaries and animals.  We hope you will take a few minutes to check them out and consider supporting them in any way you are able.

Our Services

No matter the design of your home, shape of your roof, or roofing material used, your home is still susceptible to animal intrusions. Florida’s year round warm weather makes it a great habitat for all types of animals from Raccoons and Opossum to Mice, Rats, Squirrels and Bats.

Leo Cross Florida Wildlife Trappers

FWT In The News March 2015

gleasonparksharkA rare breed, Leo Cross boasts one of Florida's odder outdoor occupations. The burly, bearded rugby player rescues and removes creatures of land, sea and air everywhere from the Space Coast to Hillsborough County, around the clock.

Working out of his white 1998 Dodge Ram, Cross drives up to 1,500 miles per week manhandling manatees, wrangling hives of angry honeybees, and occasionally borrowing the Brevard Zoo's net gun — "I spent six days in Port Canaveral chasing a wood stork with it," he recalled.

The 6-foot-4-inch, 275-pound founder of Florida Wildlife Trappers loads his truck with an array of animal apparatuses: coyote cages, squirrel cages, a catchpole, wetsuit, swim fins and mask, scuba gear, a ladder, hand tools and tasty baits like peanut butter, Rice Krispies, cat food and oatmeal bars.

Our professional trappers will locate the animal or animals and remove them from your attic, crawlspace, walls, or where ever they are in your home or business. We can also inspect for their entry points and seal them so that the animals cannot return - Critter-proofing. This is an important step because otherwise you will continue to have issues with animals to getting into your home or business and causing damage.

One Year Warranty offered when you purchase Critter proofing services!

We also offer Attic Decontamination. If you had a long-term infestation or habitation, animal poop, feces, urine, fur, feathers, fluids and food may be left in your attic creating terrible smells, attracting other animal, and leaving scent trails for these animals to find their way back. Not to mention making it very unsanitary and potentially hazardous to your health and wreaking havoc on your allergies. The attic decontamination neutralizes these scents and in some cases, a total replacement of the attic insulation is necessary.

Having allergy issues in your home? Maybe it is something in your attic!

Smelling something disgusting? There is a good chance that it is a dead rat, mouse, squirrel, raccoon, armadillo, mole, bat, possum, snake, bird, or even a cat unfortunately. Our courteous and trained trappers will locate and remove the dead animal in no time.

We are so happy with our experience with Leo Cross and his brothers. After having a bad experience with a previous trapper, we were hesitant to find another. We were blessed to find these guys. We were having a bit of a snake problem around our home, they installed a wire barrier around our house and shed and, to date, have not seen any markings or site of the snakes. Leo and his brothers were very knowledgable and professional throughout our time with them. They are courteous, polite, very hard workers and have a love for wildlife, which is so important to us. I cannot say enough for these brothers. It is rare to find such wonderful people. We will only use them, in the future, should any other problems arise. We highly recommend them. – Google 5 Star Review
