Pest & Wildlife Problems in Sugar Land, TX

Just southwest of Houston, the urban setting in Sugar Land, TX, provides food and shelter for a variety of pests. Animals like squirrels and raccoons thrive around people, and this proximity usually causes issues for homeowners.

Raccoons Raids

These pests typically come around at night, so Sugar Land residents must take precautions during the day. Hungry raccoons can find many meal options around a neighborhood, from outdoor pet food and birdseed to unsecured garbage cans. Having a raccoon as a frequent visitor increases the risk of disease transmission for homeowners and their pets.

Squirrels in the Attic

As nimble climbers, squirrels in Sugar Land scale trees to find food. The animals become nuisances when they strip bark from branches, raid gardens, and steal birdseed. Their agility also allows them to access rooftops and enter attics. Once inside, a squirrel can create a fire hazard by chewing on wiring.

Bats in Buildings

Urban development and other factors may force bats to seek shelter in buildings across Texas. Bats are potential carriers of rabies, so having them in the attic is an exposure risk for this disease. Roosts also produce large amounts of bat guano that stain ceilings and grow mold, which is hazardous to residents’ health.

Other Common Sugar Land Pests

Moles dig through Sugar Land homeowners’ lawns creating unsightly mounds. Their tunnels can damage the roots of garden crops as well. In addition, other animals may use abandoned burrows as shelter.

Texas has over ten types of venomous snakes, including rattlers and copperheads. Wood piles, dense brush, mole tunnels, and yard debris can all serve as snake hiding places.

Damage to plants can also come from eastern cottontail rabbits, which tend to strike gardens at night. Both deer and rabbits attract coyotes into Sugar Land neighborhoods, as well. Roaming in packs of up to eight members, these dog-like predators use their excellent sense of smell to locate garbage cans and stalk prey, including livestock and pets.
