Usually, noises in the attic are from squirrels or a raccoon—but on this call, Seerveld discovered something else entirely. “I saw a large amount of bird droppings, and even some nests and eggs. Sure enough, I found several pigeons roosting in the attic, including nesting pairs,” he says. His team removed the nests by hand, and they prevented the pigeons from coming back in by installing a one-way door over the opening.

Rats aren’t always picky about what they chew on. When Seerveld got a call to this house, he smelled a familiar odor coming from the kitchen. He knew there was a dead rat somewhere, and his nose led him to the rat’s final resting place—inside the back of the oven. “I found the rat’s mouth around the electrical components, and it was pretty clear it had electrocuted itself to death,” he says.

When Seerveld was called to an Orlando apartment complex to remove a snake, he was a little surprised to find this huge Burmese Python on the lawn. “These snakes are native to southeast Asia, not Florida, so I knew it was either an escaped or an intentionally released pet,” he says. “It was 11″ long, but not at all aggressive. In fact, it appeared thin and malnourished, so perhaps it had been living outside for a long time.” He picked it up and transported it to a snake center in central Florida.
