Patrick Quinn from Rat Busters in Boca Raton, Florida becomes a certified commercial animal control professional. He has recently passed the exam given by the Florida State Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and is now certified as a commercial wildlife management specialist. Florida Law requires every commercial wildlife management trapper to be certified before they are allowed to deal with or attempt to control commensal rodents in the state.
The Florida Department of Agriculture serves as the regulating body for these professionals, under the provisions of Structural Pest Control Act, Chapter 482, Florida Statutes. Certified operators must also be certified in specific categories in which their employers want to operate.
