Wildlife Problems in Jacksonville, TX

The plentiful creeks, lakes, and wooded areas around Jacksonville, TX, combined with a mild climate, attract animals that cause a number of issues for residents. Wildlife pests common in this part of Texas include bats, raccoons, squirrels, gophers, and opossums.

Bat Colonies

Several different bat species make Texas their home, but their habitats are shrinking due to urban development. As a result, some colonies will use attics and outbuildings as maternal roosts. Bats have an instinctive drive to come back to their birthplace. They will return to the same spot every year, so it's important to act quickly when infestations occur.

Raccoon Invaders

Naturally curious and smart, raccoons near Jacksonville have adapted well to humans. Homes and yards provide plenty of food, shelter, and water for the pests. These animals have agile paws that allow them to climb structures and tip over trash bins. In addition to being destructive, a raccoon is also dangerous because it can transmit the rabies virus.

Squirrel Problems

Squirrels thrive in cities with tree-lined streets like those in Jacksonville. A single squirrel can bury thousands of food caches in just a few months, which damages turf and landscaping. Many Texas homeowners consider squirrels to be serious pests, as they often destroy corn stalks and pecan trees.

East Texas Wildlife

Gophers make burrows and spend most of their lives underground. Unsightly mounds left in Jacksonville yards are usually the first sign of a problem. Gopher tunnels in a lawn can damage growing plants as well as utility cables and irrigation systems.

Opossums cause two main issues for Texas residents. Although they prefer to den in tree hollows, they will shelter under porches or in attics as well. The opossum diet includes carrion, insects, and rodents, but they will also sift through garbage when living close to homes.

The Critter Control team went above and beyond to make sure that NO CRITTERS could get into my home. We thought we had conquered the problem, but we still heard squirrels getting in, so they returned to reassess and finish the job. They actually pulled up our deck boards and found that the critters were getting in because of a rotted board underneat the cantilever. They replaced the insulation, rotted boards, and put a metal sheeting over everything so NO squirrels or critters could chew their way in! If you need critter control - you need to contact them. They stand behind their work 100%.... Thank you Rodney & Team!! Great Job. Ellen R. Haslett, MI

If you are in the market for this service, having Michelle and George take a look is a must! Unlike some other vendors, the people who come to the house and assess the job are the ones that will actually do the work, so you get to meet the people who will actually perform the work - no new people or subcontractors. Michelle and George are highly experienced, professional, and friendly - a pleasure to work with. They always came within the promised window, and were accessible by phone or text for any questions. Sincerely, highly recommend.

We had a great experience working with the crew from Critter Control San Jose. They patiently listened to our observations, we came up with strategies and ended up fixing suspect areas, trapping a couple of rats. Problem seems to have been solved and hope we don't need to call them again
