If you have a problem with wildlife in your Horseshoe Bay 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 Horseshoe Bay, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Llano County Animal Services: 830-598-2633

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC is a full-service Horseshoe Bay wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Horseshoe Bay 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.
Horseshoe Bay 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 Horseshoe Bay 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 Horseshoe Bay 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 Horseshoe Bay 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 Horseshoe Bay 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 Horseshoe Bay pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Horseshoe Bay 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 Horseshoe Bay trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Horseshoe Bay 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 Horseshoe Bay. 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 Horseshoe Bay 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 Horseshoe Bay. And remember, we are a private business, not Llano County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 830-598-2633. Llano 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.
Horseshoe Bay Wildlife Tip #1:
Do raccoons use tools?
Raccoons are very handy animals especially since they learn to adapt to their living conditions on their own. They are the type of animals that tend to accomplish many aspects in their life with what needs to be done. As many researches have been implemented in the past, it has been relatively known that raccoons are very smart animals. Raccoons have their paws that help them in many aspects when trying to figure out their living conditions. They usually get what they want because they put their paws to good tactics.
Raccoons use their knowledge and paws to good uses as a way of adapting to their environment, especially if they are living around humans. They tend to learn how to handle certain situations from observing how humans do so themselves. This is why at times they dip their food in water as they believe that is what humans do in order for their food not to be dry. As a result, raccoons can be significantly smart to the point where they can clear how to use human tools. It has also been said that humans tend to train them on how to use these tools for their own entertainment or help situation. The raccoons paws give it a major up-bringing since they can hold anything like a human could. This is why you may see raccoons opening garbage cans all by themselves as if they know exactly what they are doing. And it is because they honestly do know what they are doing. They know how to hold it, how to open it and how to check inside the garbage can without falling through.
As mentioned previously, humans tend to teach raccoons how to hold these tools by giving them treats when it has been carried out correctly. At times, it would be simply amazing just to observe what these raccoons are up to during their stages and how they are dealing with these tools. You can put them through multiple tests where if they use the tool at hand, they can get the ultimate food source prize.
Other than that, raccoons may learn how to use a few tools here and there when they need to. This is especially if they find a huge amount of food source coming from it from just using that tool. They try not to let any obstacle stand in their way when it comes to their survival skills and needs. Therefore learning to use a simply tool will be the least of their worries, and they would absolutely do so the second they have a chance to. Overall, raccoons may not know how to use these tools at the beginning but they can eventually learn how to do so. Whether it is for their own survival skills or for the pet owner's entertainment, they will end up doing so. This is way it is always best to keep in mind that raccoons are smart and can be trained to be even smarter.
