A-Team Trappers Questions and Answers

ARE YOU A HUMANE TRAPPING COMPANY?

Yes, we work in cooperation with professional wildlife rehabilitation facilities to ensure the safety and wellbeing of the animals we capture and remove/relocate. Additionally we work with licensed beekeepers to assure us that the “honey” bees we remove will not be destroyed, and will continue to thrive in our delicate ecosystem.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE?

If the animals we are dealing with are attic dwellers, our state of the art trapping and exclusion process coupled with industry leading pheromone control and disinfection process, will take approximately 7-10 days. If the animals are on the exterior of the home (armadillos, gophers, moles etc.), depending on the surroundings, water source, food source, seawalls, marsh, trees, or just plain city living, the process can be accomplished in less than a week.

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO CALL?

Call Now! We are available 24/7 to answer your questions, and via the phone we can, many times, adequately evaluate your situation and afford you immediate peace of mind. Animals in the attic can pose very real and serious health issues, affecting the air you and your family breathe in every day, not to mention the extensive damage that can adversely affect the attic itself (duct work and a/c lines, electrical, water lines etc.) The longer that you wait the more severe the problem may become.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

In the world of wildlife trapping there are multiple variables to consider. The scope of work can be very minor to highly significant. We are happy to visit you in your Pinellas, St. Petersburg or Tampa Bay residence or place of business and provide a free inspection. During the inspection we include the entire attic and photograph from multiple angles so that you get to view what we actually see. We will also search the exterior of the building so we can make a determination as to how the animals ingress and egress the premises, and what areas need to be secured, not only now but in the immediate future. We offer options to meet almost any budget. We understand times may be tough for some, so we are offering exclusive inhouse financing to help overcome some of the difficulty and fears of leaving bacteria and airborne pathogens behind.

IS MY PET FLUFFY SAFE?

The truth is pets can be at risk. The leading carriers of rabies are raccoons and bats. Armadillos can carry leprosy, some toad secretions, if ingested, can be lethal, and without question venomous snakes are in no one’s best interest, whether 2 legged or 4. As members of the family our pets are our best friends and can be at risk from invasive wildlife.

IS THERE ANYTHING THAT YOU DO NOT TRAP?

A-Team Trappers are specific in our areas of expertise and pride ourselves on that. So that does limit us to a few exceptions. Pest control, alligators, bears, and dinosaurs. If it is in your attic or roaming around your property, with few exceptions we can resolve the problem.

WHAT IF A ANIMAL BITES ME?

If a wild animal bites you it is best to seek medical attention. Animals that may carry rabies, that are likely to be encountered in St Petersburg and the Tampa Bay area are, raccoons, bats, coyotes, and stray dogs. It is possible in some cases to have the animal tested for rabies. Be cautious of all snakes you encounter. Florida has several native venomous species, including Diamondback Rattlers, Pigmy Rattlers, Coral Snakes, and the ever aggressive Water Moccasin.

I WOKE UP AND THERE IS A BIG HOLE NEXT TO THE TREE, WHAT IS IT?

The simple answer, more than likely, is an Armadillo (in almost every case). They are notorious diggers and will construct a burrow overnight without any problem. The armadillo and humans are the only 2 species known to carry leprosy. In very few instances the hole might be the result of an Opossum, or Raccoon however these situations are very few and far between. Whatever the case is, A-Team trappers will be able to identify the problem with our free Pinellas and Tampa area inspection and resolve it for you.

I HAVE TRAPPED THE RATS MYSELF. IS THERE STILL A RISK?
