The warm season in the Greater Ft. Worth, TX, area lasts most of the year. This makes the region an ideal place for animals to flourish. Since pests often enter neighborhoods searching for shelter, wildlife activity can be frustrating for residents.

Commercial Wildlife Jobs in DFW

The types of animals involved in commercial work are rats, birds, snakes, and general pests like rodents. We are generally contacted by commercial on-site management. Our commercial work usually involves exclusion, ceiling tile replacement, batt (or rolled) insulation, rat trapping, deodorizing and disinfecting drop ceiling/office areas. We also take on bird-related projects involving Avitrol, a pigeon baiting program which involves a special seed mixture that drives the birds from the job site. Bird jobs may also involve repellent bird gel, bird spikes, and netting.

Commercially, we treat child care centers, distribution warehouses, large manufacturing plants, hardware stores, convenience stores, strip malls, apartment complexes, and many other types of businesses.

Raccoon Removal

Intelligent and curious, raccoons take advantage of food near Greater Ft. Worth homes. These pests scavenge easy meals out of outdoor pet bowls and may even tip sealed trash cans to get at the contents. If a raccoon spies a desirable spot to den, such as an uncapped chimney or an attic with a damaged vent, the animal may force its way indoors.



During the inspection, we determine the severity of the raccoon infestation. We look for physical evidence like footprints in or around the home, stains from raccoon feces and urine. On the exterior of the house, we look for damage like scratches on boards, broken vents and screens, ripped apart shingles, destroyed soffits, and every possible entry point.

Trapping and Removal

Raccoon Trapping

Live trapping is one of the most efficient ways to get rid of a raccoon. Depending on the situation, a one-way door or excluder valve can be installed. An excluder valve works by allowing the raccoon to leave but blocks its reentry. The choice of device is largely dependent on the season and location of the raccoons on your property. Direct capture is not commonly used because raccoons are a rabies vector species. If we must trap, we place traps strategically to safely catch the raccoons and we check traps frequently, based on state laws.



We provide a wide range of repair and restoration services. We can repair raccoon damage like broken screens on vents and chimneys and broken boards on decks and porches. It is essential to apply cleaning agents and ectoparasite treatments on areas inhabited by raccoons.

Snake Removal

We often see venomous snakes, such as copperheads, diamondback rattlesnakes, and cottonmouths, as well as nonvenomous snakes, like Texas rat snakes, diamondback water snakes, and grass snakes. These snakes are seen around deck areas, patios, attics, crawl spaces, garages, and attics, mainly found in residential homes and some commercial warehouses in the DFW area. Snake jobs generally involve exclusion work to the home in conjunction with snake repellents and glue boards.


Snakes are excellent at avoiding detection. We inspect your home for potential entry points and look for signs like snake skin and feces. Because a snake typically enters a home hunting for food, our wildlife inspector also looks for signs of a rodent infestation.

Trapping and Removal

Trapping and Removal

We have a humane and safe way to trap and handle snakes. We relocate the snakes back into the wild.


In addition to dealing with any possible rodent problem drawing snakes to your property, a specialist will assist with sealing possible entry points and also encourage you to remove any debris where snakes can easily take up residence.

Squirrel Removal

A tree squirrel can easily become a nuisance in a Texas home near branches or power lines. Anything overhanging the roof becomes a bridge for these nimble pests to move onto and into houses. Once inside, squirrels tend to build messy nests for their young and create noisy disturbances during the day.


Wildlife specialists look for signs such as chewing on, in, or around your home, small openings leading to the attic or the crawl space, droppings, and debris like nuts or nesting material. Beams, wires, pipes, and insulation may all show signs of damage from squirrels.

Trapping and Removal

Squirrel Trapping

Live trapping or one-way doors are the most effective and humane ways to get rid of squirrels. One-way doors should never be used during birthing seasons (Spring & Fall), so our specialists will decide which is the best tool for the job. If we have to trap, we place traps strategically to safely catch the squirrels and check those according to state laws.


We can restore your home or office by squirrel proofing all entry points after we have removed the offenders. We can also clean-up the nesting sites and remove any debris, food, feces and soiled insulation.

Bat Removal

Fort Worth has a large bat population, so locals are used to seeing these animals soar through the night sky. While they may be interesting to view from afar, bat colonies that nest indoors are anything but welcome. Attics make ideal roosts, allowing the pests to rest during the day without being disturbed.

Bats are helpful because they eat many insect pests, but they can also be a problem for residents. Histoplasmosis is a major concern for both people and pets. This disease can be spread through the buildup of bat waste. For this reason, cleaning up bat guano can be a dangerous task without the proper tools.

Commercial Bat Removal
Bats are also an important commercial pest. Bat control jobs have come from hospitals, parking garages, churches, and a few other kinds of businesses. We do bat work in the Ft. Worth area and further to the South and West of Texas. Our service area includes Mineral Wells, Waco, and College Station. Bat jobs generally include the humane removal of bats (using a one-way exit excluder) and extended exclusion work, deodorizing and disinfecting, and removal of bat guano.



We perform a full interior and exterior inspection and search for signs such as rub marks, guano, a strong scent of ammonia, and small openings. The most common sign is the accumulation of guano (feces).

Trapping and Removal

Bat Removal

The most effective and humane way to remove bats is by utilizing a bat valve in conjunction with a full home exclusion. A bat valve allows for bats to exit your home but not re-enter. We follow all local ordinances for humane bat removal. We will never abandon flightless pups in your attic.


After removing the bat valves, we seal the entrance hole(s) so bats can no longer enter your home. If there is substantial guano in your attic, you should consider taking advantage of our attic remediation services to remove the soiled insulation and replace it.

Rat and Mouse Control

Mice and rats are frequent visitors to homes in Greater Ft. Worth. House mice exploit tiny holes to get indoors and chew on wires, furniture, and food packaging.


During a rodent inspection, we thoroughly inspect your attic and provide a complete exterior home inspection. The most common signs of rodent activity are gnaw marks, feces, rub marks, nesting material, runs in insulation material, and small entry points.

Trapping and Removal

Rodent Trapping

A Critter Control wildlife specialist will create a strategic trapping plan to remove the rodents found in your home. Critter Control specialists may use snap traps and live traps to capture and remove mice and rats. Rodent trapping can usually takes between five to fourteen days.


The best way to reduce the possibility of letting unwanted rodents into homes is to seal possible entrances. Exclusion methods include caulking cracks in foundations, capping chimneys, and installing mesh covers over vents and crawl space entrances. We also strongly recommend a maintenance service. Rodents have front teeth that continuously grow, which means they can gnaw a new way back into your home.

Wildlife Inspection

During the inspection we try to ascertain how many animals there are, where they are located, and how they got in. Based on what you have seen, heard and smelled, we start the inspection where you have noticed signs of animal activity. Evidence of animals inside your home include nests, dens, feces, and animal tracks. We investigate the exterior of your home looking for possible entry points, any evidence of animal damage, tracks, fur, animal waste, or rub marks.


We use several methods to humanely remove the animal from your home. Depending on the species, the number of animals, and the condition of your property, we develop a custom wildlife removal plan. Humane wildlife removal strategies include animal traps, one-way doors, and repellents. Once we guarantee all animals are gone, we implement exclusion techniques. Exclusion techniques provide a safe, long-term solution to nuisance wildlife in your home. We create barriers to prevent animals from getting to resources. We only apply exclusions once we are sure all animals are gone from your home.

Exclusion and Repair

Wildlife will damage your home. Exclusion techniques repair any damage the animal causes getting into your home. Inside your home, animals build nests and dens out of readily available material. They will create runs through the insulation. Rodents will gnaw on anything including electrical wires and pipes. Animals can also spread diseases. We apply sanitation agents to clean up feces and urine. Mammals can host pests like fleas, ticks, and mites. Ectoparasite treatments exterminate those pests so you don’t become their next host.
