Serving the Houston East Area
Critter Control of East Houston has been serving Galveston, Brazoria, Harris and Montgomery Counties by providing professional, humane animal control and wildlife management services for over 10 years.
As the hot, humid summers of Houston, TX, begin to cool, hornets and yellow jackets become increasingly aggressive. This is due to the prolific breeding of their queens, which creates hives with too many wasps and not enough space. Rats also become a problem as winter approaches, burrowing into homes in search of warmth and shelter. They are capable of spreading diseases like hantavirus and leptospirosis. Warm months offer homeowners in Houston no relief, as raccoons and skunks rummage through garbage and nest beneath porches year-round. Since skunks can transmit leptospirosis and raccoons may carry rabies, residents should keep a safe distance away from these pests.
Whether you have a ringtail cat hiding in your attic, or a ferocious wild boar tearing up your lawn, Critter Control has the knowledge, expertise and equipment to handle any wildlife situation. Critter Control, as the "Nations Leading Wildlife Control Firm," establishes the standards for excellence in the animal pest control industry and upholds those standards with a professional staff of biologists, zoologists, certified wildlife control specialists, animal control officers and anti-cruelty personal.
