If you have a problem with wildlife in your Kaufman 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 Kaufman, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Kaufman County Animal Services: (972) 551-6641
Wildlife Trapping Professionals 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 Wildlife Trapping Professionals 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 469-410-3136 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:
Wildlife Trapping Professionals is a full-service Kaufman wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Kaufman pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife Trapping Professionals 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.
Kaufman 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 Kaufman raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife Trapping Professionals. 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 Kaufman 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 Kaufman 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 Kaufman 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 Kaufman pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Kaufman 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 Kaufman trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Kaufman 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. Wildlife Trapping Professionals does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife Trapping Professionals. 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. Wildlife Trapping Professionals also provides dead animal removal in Kaufman. 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 Kaufman 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 Kaufman. And remember, we are a private business, not Kaufman County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (972) 551-6641. Kaufman 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.
Kaufman Wildlife Tip #1:
What To Do About A Rat On The Roof
Wild rat roaming around the property means panic attack for the house owner. These little animals are not human house friendly, no matter how cute they look. They damage the property. But property damage is a relatively small problem caused by the rats. The main threat is the viruses that they carry with them. Do not even forget rats cause Plague. Having rats around the house can be fatal for you and your family members.
Rats are very swift. It is hard to catch them. They are also incredibly intelligent. You can ask people who use rat trap in their homes, they will tell you how many times they were disappointed with empty rat trap cage in the morning.
Anyway, no worries, there are ways to get rid of the rat from the house or your roof. You need to outsmart the rat.
First of all you need to know that even roof rats try to enter the home. So after spotting the first rat on your roof, you need to shut all the holes in your house. You need to make sure that the rat cannot enter the house. It will be easier to catch the rats if they do not have the option to run inside the house.
Methods of getting rid of rats from the roof:
1. Set a trap: This is an age old method. Rats poop will be near the place where they stay most. You need to place the food in smart way, the rat needs to be inside. Trapping is a preferred method by many people because one does not need to use harmful poison to trap the rat. You can catch the rat alive and then release it in the forest. Trapping is a method that is also very good for the environment.
2. Poison: Many people still use rat poisons. But this is not a safe process at all. It is also a very risky thing to do if you have a child at home. Sometimes if the poison is not strong enough, rats do not die right after they eat the food. In that case, it is painful for the creature. They can also be dead at any place in the house. It can be a mess.
3. Call the pest control people: There are many pest control organizations which catch the rats from the house and then rehabilitee them. This is absolutely the best way to deal with rat problems. These people do the job very quickly and they do not use anything harmful. Their method will neither affect you nor the rats.
Rats are used for many tests. Killing the animal is also cruel. So call the wildlife experts to release them safe.

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.
