Having someone local was KEY! Steve knew that there was construction going on around my area and exactly why I got infested with raccoons. He took care of my raccoon problem and within two days things were back to normal. I hope I never get them again, but if I do, I know who to call.

Orange County is located in the central portion of the U.S. state of Florida. As of the 2010 census, the population was 1,145,956, making it Florida's fifth most populous county. The county seat is Orlando. Orange County is the central county of the Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area.
The land that is Orange County was part of the first land to come up from below the Early Oligocene sea 33.928.4 million years ago and is known as Orange Island. Orange County's Rock Spring location is a Pleistocene fossil-bearing area and has yielded a vast variety of birds and mammals including giant sloth, mammoth, camel, and the dire wolf dating around 1.1 million years ago.
Immediately following the transfer of Florida to the United States in 1821, Governor Andrew Jackson created two counties: Escambia to the west of the Suwannee River and St. Johns to the east. In 1824, the area to the south of St. Johns County was organized as Mosquito County, and Enterprise was named its county seat. This large county took up much of central Florida. It was renamed as Orange County in 1845 when Florida became a state. After population increased in the region, the legislature organized several counties, such as Osceola, Seminole, Lake, and Volusia, from its territory.
