College Station Wildlife Control
Are you having problems with some type of wildlife that has entered your structure or has damaged the yard in some way? We are equipped and capable of removing the wildlife and providing a permanent solution so that it does not happen again.
Every situation calls for a unique removal or control strategy. The methods we will use may include:
- Habitat Modification - advice on ways to change the outdoor setting to keep critter from coming again
- Exclusion - using various construction methods to keep animal from entering structure in the future
- Repellents - any type of materials that the animal smells or tastes that keeps them away
- Trapping - using a humane method by which to catch the animal and remove it
- Toxicants - materials used for controlling the animal as a result of them ingesting it
The animals we typically deal with include armadillos, birds, snakes, racoons, possums, squirrels, moles, gophers and bats. Read on to learn about the damage these critters can cause inside and outside a home.
Armadillos are commonly found in Texas. In fact, they are recognized as the state’s small mammal. They don’t like cold weather, which is why you’ll find them in warmer states, such as Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Kansas.
Many people are fascinated by armadillos, as they are unique-looking creatures, boasting an armor shell. However, they also have long, sharp claws, which means they are good diggers. They are known as agricultural pests, digging up land in search of food.
The best solution is to put up a fence and keep armadillos out of your yard in the first place. If that doesn’t work, trapping is a good option. That is where our College Station wildlife control experts come in.
When you think of birds, you may think of them as beautiful feathered creatures. However, birds can be a nuisance if too many get in or around your home. Here are some ways they can affect your home or business: (1) They can block gutters or vents with their nests. (2) They can cause damage to eaves, windows, and chimneys. (3) Bird droppings can carry diseases and parasites as well as attract pests such as flies and cockroaches. (4) Birds can carry fleas and ticks.
We will provide humane services to remove birds as well as make structural modifications to your home or business to prevent pest birds from nesting on your property.
Nothing can be more frightening than having a snake in the house. These reptiles can enter your home through gaps in your home. They can crawl through the attic or into your garage in search of mice.
Snakes can be helpful by eating mice and other pests on your property, but they can cause damage to your home. Not only can they cause structural damage by making nests, but they can also get frightened by people and pets and bite them. A rattlesnake bite can be especially deadly.
If you have snakes in or around your home, it’s best to contact a College Station wildlife control expert who can safely remove them.
Raccoons look cute and cuddly, but they can cause a lot of damage. Raccoons can become a nuisance when they damage gardens or raid garbage cans. They can be especially destructive on farms, where they feed heavily on crops and even kill poultry. They can also cause damage to your home and spread diseases through their feces.
Trapping is a good way to get rid of raccoons from your yard or in your attic. Contact our wildlife control experts to find a long-term solution.
Opossums are messy creatures that produce a large amount of waste. They are skilled climbers that are always on the lookout for pet food as well as human food. Their urine and feces can damage a home, causing stains, smells, and parasites. They can also destroy gardens and tear up your home.
Proper fencing as well as trapping can get rid of opossums on your property and help prevent future infestations.
Skunks are notorious for their potent odor and the havoc they can cause in a backyard. Skunks are primarily nocturnal animals and are attracted to backyards because of their abundant food sources, such as insects, rodents, and garbage cans. They can cause significant damage to gardens, lawns, and outdoor furniture. Skunks are also carriers of diseases like rabies, and their presence poses a risk to human health.
Backyard Comfort & Pest Control can help homeowners tackle skunk problems on their property. Their team of experts can identify the source of the skunk activity and provide humane trapping and removal services. They can also install exclusion barriers to prevent skunks from accessing the property and educate homeowners on the best practices to keep skunks away.
Squirrels are cute, but they can be a nuisance once they get inside your home. Squirrels may try to enter your home in search of a place to raise baby squirrels. You may notice them in your home if you hear chewing and scratching
The chewing is the most dangerous part. Squirrels can cause a lot of damage to the inside and outside of your home by chewing through soffits, fascia boards, siding and wood. Once inside your home, they can also chew through wires and cause electrical issues.
Exclusion is the best way to keep squirrels out. Take a look at all the entry points and seal them up to prevent entry.
Moles can cause a lot of damage to your yard. Moles are a common garden pest that can dig tunnels at great speeds. They can destroy plants. They can also cause damage to your home’s foundation by causing water to seep through the tunnels they create in your yard.
Moles can cause a lot of damage in a short period of time. If you see signs of them call for control of them right away. Digging trenches, building fences, and erecting other barriers can keep moles out of your yard.
Gophers are similar to moles in that they dig tunnels and can cause a lot of damage to a yard. They create piles of dirt in a yard where they come out of the ground. They eat the roots of grass, causing it to die. Gophers are also known to destroy underground installations such as water pipes and electrical cables. They can disrupt water and electrical supplies, causing a lot of headaches and inconvenience.
Their burrowing activity can affect the foundation of a house. Gophers also carry viruses such as rabies, monkeypox, hantavirus, and plague.
Baiting for gophers and flooding their tunnels/homes are the best ways to get gophers out of your yard. Contact us and we’ll effectively remove them.
Unlike many animals, bats do not chew on buildings. They do not smell or make a lot of noise, so they’re not intrusive in that respect. However, their feces (known as guano) and urine will accumulate over time, which can cause a lot of damage to your home. It can pass through ceilings, ruining insulation, sheet rock, and particle board. It can eventually cause the interior of the structure to collapse.
A good way to prevent bats from entering your home is to seal off any gaps or cracks on the exterior of your home. They do not like bright lights, so shining a bright light or hanging reflective objects like CDs in the area may get them to move. Bats also do not like the smells of eucalyptus and cinnamon, so you can put these smells in the places where they like to nest..
