Palm Beach County Wildlife Removal Tip:

Roof Damage Caused By A Rodent Entering A Hole - A rodent is capable of inflicting substantial damage to your roof. Upon entering a hole it has made, it can create a large nest in your attic and cause further damage to insulation and electrical wires. A fire hazard is created with the combination of dry nesting and chewed-through electrical wires. Thus, the longer the problem goes undetected, the bigger the hazards. Thus, the solution is not to simply get rid of the rodents from your home, patch up the holes and expect the problem to go away.

The longer a rodent lives in your attic, the bigger the number of holes because rodents will multiply. Rodents can chew through wood, electrical wires, shingles, vents and insulation. This means that the structural damage to your roof can become severe. Patching up the holes will only be a temporary solution, since a rodent can easily make another hole. The damage they inflict on roofs can also lead to leaks. Thankfully, you can easily prevent rodents from gaining access to your roof. Seal off openings using mesh wire. Have a professional inspect your roof to assess whether any repairs need to be done. If your roof does not have a strong structure, then it won't prevent future rodents from chewing their way through.

Animal Control - Pit Bull Mauls Girl, 8, Mother

An 8-year-old girl and her mother were attacked by a pit bull while delivering a party invitation to a friend's home on Saturday, the Lake County Sheriff's Office said. For more information, call the animal services of West Palm Beach, Florida.

Animal Services - Pet-friendly push in Florida

Check into a hurricane kennel with your dog? Palm Beach hopes so -- next year. To Mary The Dog Control Officer, leaving her beloved Chihuahua, Angel, behind when she evacuated New Orleans would have been like abandoning her child. For more information, call the animal services of Boca Raton, Florida.

"Someone asked me, 'What's more important, your dog or you life?' " said The Dog Control Officer, 38, who lost her St. Bernard Parish home to Hurricane Katrina. "Both. She is my life. People lost everything in New Orleans, and now many don't even have their pets." Palm Beach County animal control says it will continue to help with domestic animal issues, but not with Florida wildlife problems.

After fleeing her home, she discovered it's not easy to find a place to stay with a pet. That's why many Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama residents left their animals behind when they evacuated ahead of the Aug. 29 hurricane -- launching one of the largest pet rescues in history. It continues today.To prevent a similar scenario here, Palm Beach County is following the lead of other Florida counties by working to offer pet-friendly kennels to residents in time for the next hurricane season. Animal and carcass removal services in Palm Beach County is dedicated to helping Florida and Boca Raton, as well as Delray Beach, Coral Springs, and Deerfield Beach.
