If you have a problem with wildlife in your Bellaire home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Texas wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Texas and Bellaire, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Harris County Animal Services: 713-668-0487
All Creature Pest Control specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Texas also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and All Creature Pest Control is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the
property. Call 713-510-9632 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment. Click here to learn more about what prices we charge in 2020.
When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
All Creature Pest Control is a full-service Bellaire wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Bellaire pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. All Creature Pest Control performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All
animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and
cleanup is sometimes recommended.
Bellaire wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Texas to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know. Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Texas law. We offer Bellaire raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at All Creature Pest Control. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Bellaire squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed. Never, ever use poison! Most Bellaire exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Bellaire rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Texas is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Bellaire pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Bellaire bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Bellaire trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Bellaire wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. All Creature Pest Control does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by All Creature Pest Control. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc. Read about how to get rid of opossums. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks. All Creature Pest Control also provides dead animal removal in Bellaire. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Bellaire snake removal - most of the snakes in Texas are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Bellaire. And remember, we are a private business, not Harris County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 713-668-0487. Harris County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.
Every wildlife removal situation is different, from the species of animals involved, the location of the animal inside a house or outside, the extent of repairs or cleanup, etc. It's impossible to give one-size-fits-all prices. Examples MIGHT include:
Small Job: For example, a one-stop job to remove an animal in the yard: $100 on up
Medium Job: For example, getting critters out of your house with minor repairs: $300 on up
Large Job: For example, a project involving many service trips and complex work: $500 on up
Give us a phone call now and tell us about your wildlife issue and we will be able to give you a price estimate over the phone. If you're cool with it, we can schedule a same-day or next-day appointment if you like. Our prices are fair, and a good value because we do the job right, the first time.
Bellaire Wildlife Tip #1:
What Is Raccoon Eviction Fluid?
You might have heard the fact that raccoons do not live in groups. The adult male raccoons prefer to mark their boundaries, and they do not allow other male raccoons to enter inside. But during their mating seasons, they live with a female raccoon for few days and after impregnating her they again more for the independent life. The time when mother raccoon gives birth to babies, its major target is to protect the babies from adult male raccoons. Actually, the adult raccoons try to kill the baby which is why mothers always search for the safest location to raise their little ones. Human habitats are their first preference because the attics offer a comfortable and cozy environment to live inside. Babies feel safe in the attic and mother doesn't worry about male raccoons.
Now you might be interested to know what eviction fluid is and why it is considered as the best deterrent for raccoons. If your attic is infested with mother raccoons and babies; there is no doubt to say that eviction fluid can work like the best solution to empty the space. Actually, eviction fluid is a natural by-product produced by male raccoons, and it works like the best predator to female raccoons. As already discussed, during the birthing period and when baby raccoons are too small to protect themselves, mothers take full responsibility to save them. And their major target is to save babies from male raccoons. In case if they feel the presence of male raccoon in the surrounding area, the female will soon take the decision to move away with the babies.
Note that raccoons are generally nocturnal animals. They move out for food search in the dark hours. But a mother raccoon prefers to search for food in daytime as well because it has to feed the babies and also need to protect them. If you want to scare the mother raccoon away from your premises, the idea is to spread some eviction fluid at the entrance point of the attic or near the den area. When the mother raccoon returns, the smell of male raccoon by-product will make it feel like the babies are in danger. The mother will soon try to relocate her babies to ensure perfect safety for them. It is the most trustworthy and humane way to get rid of raccoons in your premises, but make sure that this solution is effective for female raccoons living with babies only.
In case if you are in trouble due to frequent visits of raccoons in your premises and want to get rid of them soon; it is time to call professional raccoon exterminators. The licensed professionals know right techniques to handle these notorious creatures, and they can ensure fast removal of raccoons from your attic. Once you get rid of raccoons, prefer to clean the attic area and repair all the damages. The holes and entry points must be blocked carefully so that raccoons do not find a way to return.
Bellaire Wildlife Tip #2:
Texas Wildlife Information:
Texas State bird: Northern mockingbird
State mammal: Nine-banded armadillo, Texas longhorn, Mexican free-tailed bat
State reptile: Texas horned lizard
State amphibian: Texas Toad
State fish: Guadalupe bass
State insect: Monarch butterfly
Texas, the second largest state in the United States, has multiple climate regions, and thus very unpredictable weather patterns. Not only can Texas have tornados, it can be hit with devastating hurricanes or extended periods of drought. West Texas often sees snow, whereas East Texas is almost always hot and dry. Some areas receive ample rain; some areas receive none. All of this variability means any animals living in Texas need to be ready for just about anything.
The regions in Texas where vegetation is scarce and the sun beats down are the prime locations for the many different lizard species living in the state. Of those, the Texas horned lizard spends its days eating the ample supply of ants which also thrive in the dry environment. The desert tortoise also likes to spend time out in the sun, eating prickly pear fruit. Unfortunately, these critters who love to be out in the open are often prey to one of Texas's largest nuisance animals, the coyote. More a bane to farmers, coyotes are opportunistic creatures, smart enough to evade capture and devious enough to break through inadequate fencing. Other large Texas predators, like the cougar and the bobcat, tend to be leery of people, spending most of their time in the scrub forests surrounding rivers like the Rio Grande.
A lack of large predators does not give the state any break from nuisance animals, however. Just like other, smaller states, Texas has significant issues with rodent infestations, including that of rats, mice, and squirrels. Another small animal pest, though not a rodent, is the Mexican free-tail bat, a common creature in the Texas skies at dusk. Bats love to take up residence in attics around the region, and because most areas in Texas are mild during the winter months, the bats will remain all year.
Armadillos also make their presence known in yards around the state. Texas is naturally dry, and a lush yard, which is likely irrigated, will hold a much more enticing amount of bugs for the armored critter. An armadillo can do serious damage to a yard in just one night. If that's not enough, Texas has a good number of both venomous and non-venomous snakes, all of which will be drawn to places with water supplies; aka: pools and ponds.
