Mesquite Wildlife Animal Control

Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Mesquite, TX

If you have a problem with wildlife in your Mesquite 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 Mesquite, and I recommend the following:

Wildlife X Team
Cell Phone: 972-845-5883

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Mesquite County Animal Services: 972-557-9733



Wildlife X Team 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 X Team 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 972-845-5883 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:

  • Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
  • Fully Texas and Mesquite County licensed and insured
  • Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
  • Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
  • Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
  • Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste

  • Wildlife X Team is a full-service Mesquite wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Mesquite pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife X Team 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.

    Mesquite 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 Mesquite raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.

    Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife X Team. 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 Mesquite 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 Mesquite 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 Mesquite 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 Mesquite pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Mesquite 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 Mesquite trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Mesquite 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 X Team does both.

    The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife X Team. 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 X Team also provides dead animal removal in Mesquite. 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 Mesquite 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 Mesquite. And remember, we are a private business, not Mesquite County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 972-557-9733. Mesquite County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

    Mesquite Wildlife Tip #1:
    What should I do if there is a raccoon in my attic - A raccoon in the attic might seem like the end of the world, but it could be worse; you could have a rat infestation. People will argue the merits of one over the other, but a raccoon isn't going to be sneaking through all the areas of your home in the way a rat would. Regardless, you need to have the animal trapped and removed before you can think about fortifying your house. One of the biggest mistakes homeowners make is sealing up the raccoon hole when they see the animal leave the building. The problem with this is that most raccoons inside of a home are mothers. Somewhere inside there is a litter of kits that will be crying to be fed in a few hours. Not only will the mother return to your attic, if she can't get in, she'll try to create a new opening. If she's unsuccessful and you never remove the babies, you'll eventually be hunting through your walls looking to remove stinking corpses. The smell of a dead animal can take months to dissipate, and you can only imagine what multiple decaying bodies would be like. The best way to handle the situation is to have a professional come and trap the mother raccoon as well as find and safely remove her young. This way mother and children can be relocated to a safe place together.

    Mesquite Wildlife Tip #2:
    Pregnant skunks in my house - It's always a difficult scenario when you're face with a pregnant skunk in the house. This critter has found your yard and a hole somewhere in your foundation or under your patio and has decided it would be a great location to raise a litter. This isn't uncommon; there are many wild animals that move into human homes to have their babies. The question is: How do you remove the skunk when its babies are hidden somewhere under your porch or building? When it comes to mother animals, professional intervention is always recommended. A mother skunk will be more inclined to protect and defend her territory than would a female skunk without babies. While you can still go about trapping the mother in the same manner, you need to be prepared for her to be more combative than if she were alone. A professional will come, trap the mother, and then do what is necessary to remove the babies. This often involves crawling under the building or using a tiny camera on a long pole to find the infants. Ideally, mother and babies are then relocated at the same time to a safe location.

    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.

    You can always call Wildlife X Team, any time of day, at 972-845-5883, for a price quote for Mesquite wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Mesquite, TX.
