Wildlife Removal in Beaumont, TX
There are nearly 46,000 households in Beaumont, which continues to grow. The wildlife population is growing too. There are 142 species of animals in Texas. As Beaumont develops, wildlife in the area must find new living spaces.
Some choose your home. Raccoons, bats, armadillos, skunks, squirrels, rodents, feral pigs, rabbits, and snakes are examples of wildlife that become destructive tenants.
Because nuisance animals often carry diseases, call the experts for help. Here are some examples of how we get rid of pesky wildlife.
Raccoons are everywhere around Beaumont. They have goals: scavenge for food, water, and shelter. If your home offers these three things, you may have unwanted roommates. Because they are nocturnal, they may be wreaking havoc on your property while you sleep.
We can help with our three-step process of inspection, removal, and repair.
Inspection: Our experts can identify all types of raccoon damage, including entry points, debris and trash, nesting areas and materials, torn roof shingles, and damaged vents. Inspection findings are used to create a custom plan for removal.
Removal: Raccoons are fur-bearing animals and a big nuisance. Texas has given property owners the right to take a raccoon without a permit or license. We prefer using our trapping and relocating system. We gain permission from the Texas Parks and Wildlife and submit all required documents on your behalf.
Repair: Raccoons damage shingles and vents when trying to get into your attic space and wood under decks, porches, and crawlspaces. We fix these problems and help you eliminate food and water resources on your property that may attract raccoons. Proper storage of trash, fencing around gardens, and screens over vents and chimneys are examples.
Rat and Mice Pest Control
There are between 40-50 species of rats and mice in Texas. The Norway rat, roof rat, and house mice are the most common, estimated to be in the hundreds of millions across Texas each year. Rodents walk across wires, making them sag and possibly touching your home or trees, creating fire hazards. They run across your roof, make nests with materials they find on your property, and eat through food packaging in your pantry. They are sneaky and carry diseases. Here’s how we can help.
Inspection: Our experts look for rodent signs in your yard and the exterior and interior of your home. Gnaw marks, droppings, nests, and nesting item trails are just a few signs of their existence.
Removal: The Texas Health and Safety Code 341.018 for rodent control states that a person must attempt to exterminate the rodents by poisoning, trapping, fumigating, or other appropriate means; provide every practical means of eliminating rats in the structure, and incorporate rat-proofing features. We are happy to do this for you.
Repair: We have the tools to eliminate rodents as required by state law. We can also rat-proof your home with our exclusion methods by securing entry points, protecting wires, and fixing any damage the rodents created.
We also offer a recurring service to ensure your home stays rodent free.
We have three common squirrels throughout the Eastern parts of Texas: the eastern fox squirrel, the eastern gray squirrel, and the flying squirrel. They are fun to watch, but, unfortunately, the fun ends when you start noticing damage and realize you need to get rid of squirrels on your property.
Inspection: Our inspections for squirrel damage find everything from torn roof shingles, nests, shredded insulation or drywall, and chewed electrical wiring. Squirrels also damage trees and ornamental plants and build nests in chimneys and vents, creating fire hazards.
Removal: Fox and gray squirrels are classified as game animals in Texas, but that does not mean you can go hunting in your front yard. That is illegal. Texas allows cage trapping with bait for proper removal and relocation. Before every relocation, we contact the Texas Parks and Wildlife for advice.
Repair: We use many exclusion methods, from attaching screens on vents and chimneys to cutting back tree limbs close to your roof or outdoor wires and sealing all entry points. We clean up debris in your yard, fence your garden, and take down bird feeders that attract squirrels.
Texas has more species of bats than any other state in America (32). We mostly see the big brown bat, the red bat, and the evening bat in the Beaumont area. Bats look for dark, undisturbed locations to reside during the day until it’s time to hunt for food at night. Examples are caves, attics, barns, ceilings of outbuildings, and chimneys.
Bats leave behind a lot of guano, which is highly toxic. They carry spores that float through the air, seep into your home and make you sick. Respiratory problems, cough, headaches, fever, and encephalopathy are common symptoms associated with bat guano. Bats can also carry diseases like rabies. Therefore, bats must be removed for your protection.
Inspection: Our inspection locates the bats and all areas damaged by bat guano. We locate entry points, food and water resources, and lights that attract bats.
Remove: Bats in Texas may not be hunted, killed, possessed, purchased, or sold. Our pros can move and trap bats if inside or on a building occupied by people. If rabies is suspected, we can transport them to a Texas lab for examination. We have custom equipment and follow laws regarding bat maternity season, which prevents removal from Spring to late summer.
Repair: Repair involves cleaning and sanitizing areas affected by guano. If guano is in your insulation or drywall, we can replace it. We also help you with exclusion techniques like turning lights off at night. Lights attract bugs that attract bats. We also eliminate water resources, screen chimneys, and seal entry points.
