While their masked eyes and ringed tails may make them cute, raccoons are destructive animals that are often found throughout the urban communities of Gainesville. Raccoons are sneaky and very fond of the many amenities humans love. Whether it is getting into your trash, taking your cat’s food, or making your backyard their playground, raccoons can wreak havoc on your outdoor space. The bigger issue is when they get into your home. Raccoons often use pet doors to enter people’s homes where they become residents, eating your food, and finding a space to care for their young.

If you have a raccoon living in your home, it is time to call Superior Wildlife for our Gainesville raccoon removal and control services. Raccoons can quickly cause thousands of dollars of damage to your home. Often making the attic their home, raccoons can destroy insulation, wiring, and ruin the surfaces in your home with their urine and feces. Do not let raccoons run you out of your home, call us instead. We will come to your home and identify their entry and provide recommendations for preventing future entry, and remove all the raccoons living in the house. We will remove all raccoons associated with your home. We know how costly raccoon jobs can be, which is why we are here to provide a long-term resolution through our Gainesville raccoon removal and control services.

Superior Wildlife Services Keeps your Commercial Space Raccoon Free.

Raccoons are destructive animals and the last type of wildlife you want calling your Gainesville warehouse or apartment complex home. At Superior Wildlife Services, we have worked in commercial wildlife removal for years and Scott and Sandra are here to make your raccoon problems a thing of the past. Raccoons are often drawn to commercial properties due to trash and litter, and once they find snacks, they decide to take up residence. Raccoons work their way into garages, attics, and walls and can wreak havoc on your business’ wiring and insulation. When you need Gainesville raccoon removal services, we can help. Our services are humane and ensure no raccoons are harmed during the trapping and removal process. *Sandra will tell you that raising kits is a full time job and better left to the professional rehabbers.

We are authorized Critter Quitter Installers!

We get a lot of questions regarding to the what, when, how, where, and why of the way we conduct business.
There are way too many to try and list them all, but we have compiled a list of the most common questions that
we hear on our day to day life out in the field and as well on the phones.

Hey, we don't claim to know everything. If we don't know the answer, we will find it for you or point you in theright direction to find it!

Do you handle Dogs and Cats?

We DO NOT handle dogs and cats. This is best left for your local animal control department which may be found in your phone book or on Google.

Do you resolve insect problems as well?

No, we only deal with wildlife animals and leave the insect problems to the experts of a pest control company. We may recommend one to you if you have an insect problem or we discover a problem during an assessment at your structure.

Do you remove dead animals?

Yes we do. It is one of the nastiest jobs we do in this line of work. We will remove any dead animal from inside, under or around a structure.

What is this going to cost me?

We are a private business and a service for hire. Every job is different, regardless if it is the same animal from structure to structure. In order to have a comprehensive scope of the project we must see the structure and surrounding area in person to know what we are dealing with. The majority of cost is due to difficulty of the job and the size of your structure and the amount of damage that has been done that we must repair and seal to prevent future wildlife problems.

What type of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, check, certified check, major credit cards (through Pay Pal), and money orders.

How long does it take to solve the problem?

Typically it will take 5-10 days to resolve your problem. There are of course situations that make jobs last longer. Size of the property, structure, weather, and access, and quantity of the animals are all factors into the length of how long a job may take.

Do I have to have an animal problem to have my home/business inspected and sealed?

Not at all! We highly recommend a home assessment to be done on any structure. Especially new home or business owners, people in close proximity to water, woods, commercial food establishments,  or areas being cleared for building. Wildlife is at its highest concentration in these areas. It will save you a lot of money in the long run to have a home animal proofed before you have a problem. If a neighbor has a bat problem, where do you think the bats may go when they are sealed out from their structure?

Can't I just use mothballs?

Sure. If you want to keep facing the problem over and over again. Mothballs are a temporary relief to your problem, at best. They will quickly dissipate and the smell will be non- threatening to the target animal. Most wildlife become accustomed to the smell and it does not affect them long term. You need a professional to assess your issue and resolve it as soon as possible before it costs you a lot more money. We have dealt with clients that put me off for months, only to call me back after they tried the "do it yourself" path. They did nothing and the animals had done more damage in that time, as well as now requiring more labor for us to remove their futile attempts at exclusion costing more money.

If I trap an animal will you pick it up?

Sure. We will pick up a captured animal that you have trapped providing it is not a domesticated animal. We do charge a fee for the Pick-up and removal. It will also be necessary for us to retain the trap, due to the chance of an animal escaping during a trap to cage transfer.

Is there any type of wildlife you will not deal with?

Alligators, bears, panthers, gopher tortoise and or any other Florida federally protected wildlife.

Each county has a state licensed trapper that will remove the alligator at no charge to you and can get it done quicker than we can.

Please contact the FL Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission if you have a nuisance alligator. Their website is and they can be reached at (863) 462-0015.


I found/have an injured animal, what do I do with it?

First and foremost, do not put yourself or other people at risk trying to handle an injured animal! This is a time when they are most likely to defend themselves to survive. Most birds are best left alone. They do not survive well in captivity. Most rehabilitators will only deal with predatory birds such as eagles, hawks, ospreys, and
