If you have a problem with wildlife in your Fredericksburg 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 Fredericksburg, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Gillespie County Animal Services: 830-997-1907

property. Call 830-455-4276 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:
Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC is a full-service Fredericksburg wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Fredericksburg pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC 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.
Fredericksburg 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 Fredericksburg raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC. 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 Fredericksburg 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 Fredericksburg 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 Fredericksburg 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 Fredericksburg pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Fredericksburg 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 Fredericksburg trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Fredericksburg 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. Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC. 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. Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC also provides dead animal removal in Fredericksburg. 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 Fredericksburg 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 Fredericksburg. And remember, we are a private business, not Gillespie County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 830-997-1907. Gillespie 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.
Fredericksburg Wildlife Tip #1:
Do Snakes Come Out In The Rain?
Many snakes are known to be living in forests, deserts, and the woods. In all these areas, it will rain from time to time, probably more in forests and not at all in deserts. But it is safe to say that a snake will tend to experience a few rainy days within their lifetime. Most animals and humans tend to stay indoors when it comes to rain because it is better to stay dry than to become soaking wet. The rain also makes the environment very wet which would cause most of the soil to become moist. When this occurs, the legs of an animal may get very dirty. But since snakes do not have legs, and they mostly live within parts of closed areas which are not exposed to the weather. It makes us question, what do snakes exactly do when they are in the rain? Do they hate it? Do they even come out during rainy days? All these questions are being to rise about snakes, and here are some answers!
Snakes actually come out more during the rainy weather, because they have been known to actually prefer the rainy weather over sunny weather. The reason of this is because they love the sound of the rain and the smell of the environment when it rains. As we all know, when it rains our community becomes brighter, for example our grassy areas become more nourished, at times the world does need rain. Therefore, snakes do prefer to rain at times since it brings a type of peace being for the community.
Snakes are known to live in underground dens due to their body temperature needed a balance of cold and hot heat. However just as normal rain is nice, heavy rain can get out of control and become bad. As a result, the dens of these snakes become flooded with water everywhere, which forces them to leave their homes for the time being. Therefore, they tend to try and find areas they can sit in until they dry off and the weather becomes calm. This is also the main reason snakes tend to get inside your home on rainy days, because they do love rain and come out from time to time. But they do not prefer heavy rain at all because to them, heavy rain just ruins their home that they have been living in underground.
Overall, it is safe to say that snakes would come out in the rain but only when the rain is at a certain extent. They will not risk their lives for the heavy rain, as it already ruins their home. Snakes just prefer the rain since it gives nourishment to the grass, and produces a nice smelling breeze within the air. Therefore, there is no yes or no answer to the question, since it truly depends on the severity of the rain and on the snake itself. Keep in mind to keep your doors shut accurately on a rainy day!
