Who do I call for a quick wildlife removal in Houston, Texas?

Do not call the city or animal control for an animal in your attic. Animal control does not go into attics. Animal control will come out to pick up an already trapped animal safely secured in a trap or containment object. Animal control does not provide wildlife removal in Houston, Texas for structures. They will pick up traps but will not set traps.

DIY, no! Have you ever been bitten by a raccoon? Squirrel? Opossum? Bat? Rat? Stray Cat? Skunk? Duck? Snake? Yes, all these are possibilities of wild animals that could be in your attic. One of these wild animals could of had babies and are in a defensive state to protect their young. Just opening your attic door could cause an offensive attack.

Police? If you think its a human then Yes! If, and I mean mostly is not a human, then no. The police will secure the area from a robbery but not a wild animal nuisance. The police might be called out in the event the animal is running around your house, but they will just call for help.

Absolutely do not do nothing! Somethings up there, get rid of it ASAP! Chewing wires becomes a very real fire hazard fast! One mother with a litter becomes up to 7 wild animals living in your attic leaving droppings and urine soaking into your walls and ceiling.

Pest control services? Maybe. Not all pest control services are trained in actual nuisance wildlife removal. Poisons should never be used for wild animals, even rodents. Dead rats in walls stink! Simply ask if the repair after the animal has been removed. If they are trained in nuisance wildlife removals in Houston, Texas they will offer a full estimate. (read next paragraph)

Well for a quick wildlife removal in Houston, Texas you should call a trained Nuisance Wildlife Removal Service, Wildlife Removal Service, or Wildlife Control Service. All are the same thing.

Customer Experience with Houston Critter Removal

Last night while waiting for my garage door to open I see two eyes looking out at me from my attic vent! Too small to be a person and why would anyone be in my attic but starring down at me. I knew right there and then I needed a professional Houston critter removal.

Who do I call? I have never needed a Houston critter removal. Do I call the police? Should I get my neighbor who hunts come and take care of this critter? So I call animal control? Does my pest control service handle critters? All of this was racing through my mine lightning fast.

Calm down, think. I don’t think the police will come in my attic. My neighbor will shoot holes in my house so I’m not going to call him. Ah ha! I will call animal control. Nope, animal control will loan me a trap to do it myself. I don’t have the guts to go up in my attic. I don’t want to be crazy attacked by a monster critter.

I know, for sure my pest control company will trap and get rid of this critter. Yeah, they said they can put poison in attic and to play loud music to scare the critter away. No way! Who do I call??!!

You know what you do when you don’t know what to do, you go online and figure it out. I’m so glad I did, I found out there is a entire industry devoted to getting rid of critters. I searched for Houston critter removal and found pages of companies in Houston that do critter removal for a fee.

So my search for a Houston critter removal began. I soon found out that not all Houston critter removal services are alike. When calling to get someone out I found that some companies come for free and some come for what they called a paid inspection. Do the free ones charge more because it free or does the paid inspections cost less because you have already paid something?

Not knowing which kind of initial visit I wanted to go for I decided to call back the companies and ask the price ranges for having an animal in the attic. Funny, got the same humbo jumbo vague answer from most of them…”We haven’t seen your attic for how many critters are in there, we don’t know the damages for repair, and we need to see how extensive the clean up will be. I get it but you would think there would be some kind of average cost to this critter problem.

Then I found this one company that was very nice on the phones. Answered professionally. sympathetic to my problem. Could come out immediately. When asked if there was an initial inspection cost they said no that they would inspect for free. I asked what would be the round about cost involved?

She did say that same ole blah blah blah about they needed to see it but, she then started to actually talk about the whole process of a Houston critter removal. She asked my why I was calling so I told her about the eyes looking out at me from the attic vent. She said typically trapping for two traps runs about $300. Minor clean up starts at $100 but could very well go into the thousands if the critter has been in the attic for a long time.

It was explained to be entry points were going to be repaired and if it was just one entry it most likely would not go over $200 to repair but again said this is not a quote because she had no idea what the cost was to my home since she had not seen my house.

She did say sanitizing would be $250 for each attic which I only have one. She was very nice and was trying to inform be but not scare me away and she did a good job. The last thing she said was they had removed a critter from an attic for $150, repaired the entry for $100, and there was no clean up for other clients. However they had gone into many situations that were thousands of dollars when the homeowner never heard the critters in their attics.

I still was reluctant to schedule only because the pricing was unknown. She had explained it to me so I did understand why she could not give a firm price, so I scheduled.

This Houston critter removal service arrived on time. Performed an exterior inspection of my home for entries. Found three possible entries and one entry that was absolutely the doorway into my attic.
They then went up into my attic and found a mother raccoon had just giving birth about a week ago in just left of my attic vent. I had no idea!

The wildlife control technician told me there was a method of removal that didn’t require any trapping or live catching the raccoon. He said that a scent control product would be placed by the mother raccoon and randomly around the attic. It scares the mother raccoon into relocating the litter of pups by having male raccoon pheromones in the product. Male raccoon will often find a female after she has had a litter and kill the pups to impregnate the female again. Female raccoon will fight and often loose this battle so this method works good naturally and is less expensive.

It was explained to me that scent control is less expensive because there is less return visits and no relocating wildlife fees. They said this method is about 80% successful, If it does not work then they would have to trap and relocate.

I said to go ahead with the scent control method because the mother raccoon should leave that evening. A follow up visit was scheduled for 2 days.

Houston Critter COntrol

Two days arrived and I was excited to see what the Houston critter removal services would find in my attic. After a complete re-inspection of my property and attic there was no raccoon! The repairs and minor clean up was completed and I wrote a check to Masters Services for about $700. More than I wanted to pay but the holes in my house were repaired professionally, the attic was sanitized, and no more critters were starring at me from my attic when I get home.

Raccoon removal procedures are varied by the state regulations and the preferred method for each situation. Live catch is simply being able to be close enough to grab the animal either by your hand (if young enough) or with a catch pole. Most raccoon pups are caught by hand once the mother raccoon is removed.

Raccoon Removal can be Dangerous – trust the professionals

Trapping raccoons and removing them to a non residential area. Raccoon traps are set with peanut butter, marshmallows, dog or cat food, or my favorite is bacon grease. Setting traps in an attic should only be done by a trained professional wildlife control handler that is trained in taking a MAD raccoon down an attic stair step. Homeowners beware, traps malfunction and raccoons will attack you. Leave it to the professionals.

Raccoons can be dangerous to trap on your own – Don’t Panic

Raccoon scat (feces) is easily recognized. It appears to be almost like a small dog dropping. The meal being passed is not always digested and easily identified. Where there is raccoon scat there is a raccoon. Spotting scat on a roof or in the attic is a sure sign a raccoon has taken up residence on your property. If a family of raccoons has moved in under your house, call on Master Services for careful and humane wildlife removal. Houston homeowners please dial 713.723.4854 and tell us what you need us to capture and relocate.

Free Estimates on any Squirrel Removal

Generally all squirrels live in trees, basically in the holes of trunks or even in the treetop in abandon crow’s nests. Due to the convenience of shelter from humans, attics and chimneys have become a familiar space to live. Squirrels will usually start looking for a nest when they start to mate, which is when they are about a year old. It usually takes about six weeks from the time that the squirrels mate until there are baby squirrels running around. Baby squirrels are called kittens and kittens are born only twice a year. Once in the spring time and once at the end of the summer, it is not unusual for the female squirrel to have about two to five offspring.

When it comes to a squirrel’s diet, the facts are they will eat acorns, wheat, fruit, bird’s eggs, mushrooms, berries, oak buds, corn, insects, moths, nesting birds and especially nuts of any kinds. Squirrels will typically gather and save a lot of their food all year round. The squirrel will wake up out of hibernation and go look for the food they buried!

Squirrels can generally live anywhere from ten to twelve years but after about six years, they are considered old squirrels. Don’t wait to schedule a Houston squirrel removal or Dallas squirrel removal before the problem gets much worse, and I mean on the pocket book.

Bat Removal

Bat Removal

Most bats have a breeding season, which is in the spring for species living in a temperate climate. The Texas Parks and Wildlife dictates when the bat removal have to stop being removed until late summer when the give the okay do the exclusions and removal. If it is spring you must call for our bat exterminator services as soon as you think you have a bat colony. At some point come May the Texas Parks and Wildlife officials will give the no exclusions until further notice. Bats are federally protected.

If you find out about the bats after this time frame you still need to call so we can seal up the exterior of the house to prevent the bats from spreading to other parts of the house. Come late summer we will then complete the exclusion.

Bats may have one to three litters in a season, depending on the species and on environmental conditions such as the availability of food and roost sites. Females generally have one offspring at a time, this is maybe a result of the mother’s need to fly to feed while pregnant.

Bats are nocturnal creatures. Their daylight hours are spent grooming, sleeping, and resting; it is during the nighttime hours that they hunt.

Bats are natural reservoir for a large number of zoonotic pathogens including rabies, severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS), Henipavirus and possibly ebola virus. Their high mobility, broad distribution, and social behavior (communal roosting, fission-fusion social structure) make bats favorable hosts and vectors of disease. Many species also appear to have a high tolerance for harboring pathogens and often do not develop disease while infected.
