Raccoons appear cute and cuddly, but don't let those big brown eyes fool you! Raccoons tend to be very aggressive when threatened and often carry rabies.
Similar to the raccoon in that possums appear rather cute and helpless, they are in fact quite aggressive when cornered. They have very sharp teeth so trapping them is better left to the experts!
You probably won't get bit by an armadillo, but trying to handle one yourself brings with it some very dangerous health risks. Armadillos can be carriers of rabies and human leprosy, so why risk it? Call us today!
Thanks to victorpest.com, here are 7 SUPER GROSS facts about rats:
1. Rats carry at least 60 communicable diseases. Known to bite people when they’re sleeping, transferring diseases through their saliva.
2. Rats can tread water for three days and survive being flushed down a toilet.
3. Rats can chew through electrical wires, cinderblocks and even lead pipes with their razor sharp teeth
4. A rat’s teeth grow five inches a year.
5. A female rat can mate with as many as 500 partners during a six-hour period of “heat,” or sexual receptivity, which occurs about 15 times per year. That's about 2,000 offspring in one year !
6. Rats eat their own feces for nutritional value
7. And one last particularly gross detail: Rats have belly buttons. Ew!
Bats roost anywhere they can find shelter, including your attic and roof. All Florida bats eat a lot of moths, flies, dragonflies, beetles, wasps, ants, mosquitoes and more. Many bats can eat their body-weight in insects every night. They also carry more diseases that can transfer to humans (including rabies and viruses related to SARS) than any other species (Time.com 2017).

Absolute Critter has done a great job trapping raccoons for us. He was able to remove 9 raccoons from our yard in a very short amount of time. This was the second time we called ARC and have been very satisfied each time. I wont hesitate to call them again if I need more trapping. Thanks, Jimmy, for your hard work and expertise!

These guys are friendly, prompt, and they get the job done at a great price. What they did for me was well worth the price! I will be using them again in the near future in my new house once the renovations are complete.

Absolute Critter Removal stands behind their work. They came back to my house 4 times after the job was closed for no charge to trap several more rats in my attic. They are honest and arrive on time! I will use them in the future."
