This is the government animal control services operating in Lee County and sponsored by the city of Fort Myers. This agency typically deals with domestic animal issues involving dogs and cats. This includes things like dangerous dogs, stray cats, pet adoptions, etc. However, this agency will sometimes lend assistance with wildlife concerns. Call 239-533-7387 and ask if they will assist with your wildlife problem. To increase the chance of success, do not lie, but if applicable, state that the problem is a public health matter in Fort Myers, or that you feel the public safety is at risk, perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
This is NOT a government agency. It is privately run, and operates on volunteer donations. This is a wildlife rehabber facility that deals strictly with wild animals. They may be able to help you with your wildlife problem, depending on the type of problem. The level of help might depend on their resources at the time. They will almost surely help in any case of an injured wild animal, or an orphaned baby animal, such as a baby squirrel or bird that fell out of a tree, or a baby opossum, etc. Please treat Fort Myers Wildlife Rehabilitation kindly and donate if you are able to.
This is the statewide government wildlife agency in Florida, using your tax dollars to address wildlife issues. Sometimes called the Florida Fish & Wildlife Agency. Florida game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and yes, wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. But they also have resources that may apply to your wildlife problem. To increase the chance of success, state that the problem is a public health matter in Florida perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases.
Yes, the Fort Myers police department will sometimes help with wildlife problems! I've seen many cases of the cops chasing down an errant bat in your house or snake in your pool! To increase the chance of success, never lie to the police dispatcher, but if applicable, state that you feel your personal safety is at risk, or the problem is a public safety matter in Fort Myers, or a public health issue perhaps due to the spread of rabies or other diseases. Success may come down to whether or not a police officer wants to show up to this call, or is available. It's not always consistent.

Fort Myers Wildlife Tip:
What Size Of Rodent Hole Do They Need To Get In - Rodents are flexible animals that can fit in rather tiny spaces. It is because of that ability that they can sneak into your home and leave you wondering where they came in from. They obviously did not use the front door and your windows are closed so that theory is out. Rodents will most of the time come in through a hole in the wall or on the roof. The hole does not need to be as big as the rodent looks because they can get through almost anything. So when you look for holes on the wall or roof you should pay special attention to small holes.
The size of rodent hole needed depends on the type of rodent that is in your home. If it is a common gray rodent then the hole needs to be just about the size of an American quarter. Holes that small may be hard to spot for you, but to a rodent it is almost as if you are putting out the red carpet and welcoming them in. If the unwanted visitor is a Eastern Gray Rodent then the hole can be much smaller. If you want to know how small the hole can be then simply put your hand in your pocket and take out an American nickel.
