I used to love seeing squirrels come up and nibble on the feed I'd put out in our bird feeder. Well, let's just say I didn't love seeing them as much when I went up into my attic after hearing some scratching around up there. Turns out I was fully infested and they were everywhere. Trent was amazing and walked me through every process explaining it all before taking action. I couldn't have asked for a better, more personalized experience. He gave me his cell number and was always professional and polite through the entire process. Thanks to Trent and the whole Dr. Critter team.

Apopka is a city in Orange County, Florida. The city's population was 55,000 at the 2020 census. It is part of the OrlandoKissimmeeSanford Metropolitan Statistical Area. Apopka comes from Seminole word Ahapopka for "Potato eating place". Apopka is often referred to as the "Indoor Foliage Capital of the World" due to the extensive Greenhouse nurseries there.
The earliest known inhabitants of the Apopka area were the Acuera people, members of the Timucua confederation. They had disappeared by 1730, probably decimated by diseases transmitted through Florida by Spanish colonists.
The Acuera were succeeded by refugees from Alabama and Georgia, who formed the new Seminole Indian tribe. They called the area Ahapopka. Aha, meaning "Potato," and papka, meaning "eating place". By the 1830s, this settlement numbered about 200, and was the birthplace of the chief Coacoochee (known in English as "Wild Cat").
