Snakes in DeSoto
The warm sun in DeSoto, TX, provides the perfect habitat for snakes. A number of relatively harmless species are native to northern Texas, but some, like copperheads and cottonmouths, are venomous.
Copperheads are orange with dark bands and typically found close to water in the spring. Cottonmouths, also known as water moccasins, have dark bodies with white inside their mouths. They prefer areas like swamps or marshes.
Both species are pit vipers and may bite when startled. These snake bites cause pain, swelling, and skin discoloration. The pests lounge in high grass and occasionally enter homes, causing panic.
Pests with Rabies
Because it is fatal, rabies is a major concern for the residents of DeSoto. There are several pests common to the area that can transmit the disease through bites, such as coyotes and raccoons.
Now used to living in residential areas, coyotes are attracted to the smell of garbage and compost in yards. They prey on small pets and could attack humans if threatened.
A raccoon is willing to eat anything. These pests will go where there are resources and can become aggressive if their food is removed.

Raymond was very pleasant and knowledgeable. He paid attention to detail. Good Job!! Thankyou!!
I am so glad I had Critter Control come and inspect my house! The problem was located and fixed immediately and since then I have not had any more problems with bats. Money well spent!!!
I connected Critter Control Orlando and was surprised, though elated that an actual person quickly answered. She was pleasant and efficiently scheduled a visit to my house to solve my varmit problem. The appointment was the next day. As arranged, I got a call from Ryan the next morning to tell me his eta. He arrived right on time and after explaining the procedure, got right to work. After a survey of our attic, he told us the problem and gave us a price to fix it. He explained exactly what would be done and an approximate number of visits it would take. I found Ryan to be easy to communicate with and an excellent customer relations person. I will be recommending Critter Control to my friends and neighbors.
We had a raccoon in the attic and this team of professional workers caught him after days of detective work. It was a pleasure working with them and having them at my house. I especially want to thank John and Kenzie!
After months of fighting moles in our yard ourselves and with the help of a landscaper, with no success, Critter Control caught a mole within a week. Very reasonably priced and very thorough. They’re the experts! We should have called them a lot sooner.
Justin was very professional and he and his team did the work quickly and thoroughly. This is a nice company to work with.
I have had Critter Control for years and they are excellent. Recently I had a new roof which made many things need to be resealed. They worked with me since my insurance would not cover it.
Ricky was fantastic and he made sure the critters were gone which we so appreciated.
After having a corner of our home’s foundation dug up by a family of groundhogs, I called Critter Control and met with Bryan. We tried traps but those darned groundhogs were too smart (they even passed up marshmallows—who does that?!). Bryan suggested fencing the area to keep them out, and it was expertly installed today by Dave. Looks neat, very secure and (hopefully) impenetrable! Bryan was always responsive to my calls and I’m a very satisfied customer; I highly recommend Critter Control!
Tom was really helpful and helped me out first thing in the morning to do the inspection and quote.
