As Seen On
Houston Bat Removal
We specialize in residential and commercial humane bat removal and complete guano decontamination. Bats often gain entry through poorly built or poorly maintained homes and often gain access through vents such as gable or ridge vents and into attics. They also gain access through chimneys. Entry points of a bat infestation can be through a hole smaller than an 1/2 of an inch wide. Texas bats needing bat control are members grouped by the Chiroptera species. Licensed and insured, we use tested bat control methods approved by Bat Conservation International for humanely removing roosting bat colonies (outside of bat maternity season) safely and legally, without harm to your building or risk to your tenants. Call us to begin the bat exclusion process. Bats are associated with rabies and histoplasmosis.
Houston Texas Armadillo Removal
Armadillos are excellent diggers, and they will often dig a large burrow next to a house, displacing a lot of dirt. They usually dig several different burrows in a given area nightly in search for worms and grubs. Their process creates holes about 1 to 3 inches deep and 3 to 5 inches wide. Unlike other nuisance wild animals, armadillos present little danger to people. One way to keep armadillos away is with professional critter control, such as an underground barrier that feeds a few feet into the ground to prevent digging. Armadillo trapping can be dangerous without proper protection can lead to scratches and increases the risk of contracting unwanted disease.

Houston Squirrel Removal
Squirrels are a known pest animal but are typically non-aggressive unless provoked when caring for their young. Although they are fun to watch, squirrels can get into our homes and business fairly easily. Once that access has been obtained, they start causing soffit, attic and roof damage. As they are excellent chewers, (they must chew to file their teeth down or they will continue to grow), they will gnaw/chew on wood as well as electrical wiring insulation which can cause electrical fires. Once squirrels in the attic are removed, odor remover services are necessary to prevent new animals from being attracted to the area.The final step is the home/ structure has to be “squirrel proofed” also known as wildlife exclusion, after squirrel removal is complete to ensure the problem doesn’t reoccur.
Houston, Texas Skunk Removal
In our opinion, skunks are probably one of the most misunderstood texas wildlife creatures in any community. Most people think that skunks are smelly wild animals. It’s not the animal that stinks, but their spray. If a person simply stands very still and doesn’t make any sudden to threatening movements or create loud noises, the skunk may raise its tail and stomp the ground but in most cases will simply turn and run the opposite direction. Remember, they want to avoid an encounter. Skunks are burrowing animals and often dig under homes, sheds, patios, carports, air conditioning units and/or any other place that has loose dirt around a structure. In most cases, a skunk can simply be trapped followed by skunk proofing to ensure the animal doesn’t return.
Houston, TX Snake Removal
When a snake enters, they are often simply utilizing the same entrance/exit point that a rodent has used and are following the scent trails left by that rodent in search of food. There are poisonous species of snake in our area, they can be very aggressive when encountered. If a snake enters your home or business, give us a call immediately for professional Houston snake removal! Not only can we humanely remove the snake, we can snake proof your home and install snake exclusion devices over the main entry points just in case there are more snakes inside the home. What happens quite often is that it becomes necessary to begin a pest control program at the same time to eradicate the food sources the snake has been in pursuit of.
Houston TX Rat Removal
Rats are in probably 50-70% of the homes that we work on. There is a good chance you have them and do not know it. It is easy to ignore something that cannot be seen but you do not want rodents in your attic, especially roof rats in the attic. Roof rats chew electrical wiring insulation, their urine and feces create an extreme health risk, and they leave a scent trail for predators such as snakes to follow. In fact almost all of the home snake calls we get have rodents living inside the attic. The correct method of fixing the problem for good after rat removal is sealing up all entry points with materials they cannot chew through and then trap exterminate them all. Simply poisoning them or setting traps without rat proofing the home will not fix the problem, it is not always the lone animal removed that you need to worry about.
Houston Texas Opossum Control
Opossums are creepy little animals that smell a great deal, but, aside from that fact, are harmless. Contrary to popular belief, opossums are not disease carriers, are not aggressive, do not destroy property, are nomadic by nature and simply enjoy roaming the neighborhood in pursuit of their next meal. Opossums are easily trapped and relocated. In some cases, a slight habitat modification may be necessary once the possum removed is relocated to prevent future sightings such as not leaving pet food out all night or securely covering the tops of trash cans.

Bird removal can be a complex process. Even the smallest of birds can create massive problems for a homeowner. Bird nesting in exhaust vents is a terrible situation to deal with.
