What is Considered a Nuisance Animal in Fort Myers?

While you may think the neighbor’s dog should be considered a nuisance animal in Fort Myers— it doesn’t quite fit the bill! Neither do bears, panthers, or alligators (if you happen to find those critters wandering into your yard along with the neighbor’s dog). So, which animals are considered nuisance animals in Fort Myers? And how do you remove them from your property?

According to Florida’s Administrative Code, nuisance wildlife are animals exhibiting behavior that, “causes (or is about to cause) property damage, presents a threat to public safety, or causes an annoyance within, under or upon a building on their property.”

More specifically, that includes:

  • Rats & rodents
  • Muscovy Ducks
  • Raccoons
  • Bats
  • Armadillos
  • Opossums
  • Snakes
  • Squirrels

Other animals might seem like they fit these criteria, but they are exempt for a variety of reasons like, for example, being on Florida’s endangered and threatened species list.
