If you have a problem with wildlife in your Paris 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 Paris, and I recommend the following:
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Lamar County Animal Services: (903) 784-6860

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 903-689-4801 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 Paris wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Paris 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.
Paris 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 Paris 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 Paris 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 Paris 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 Paris 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 Paris pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Paris 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 Paris trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Paris 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 Paris. 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 Paris 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 Paris. And remember, we are a private business, not Lamar County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (903) 784-6860. Lamar 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.
Paris Wildlife Tip #1:
Methods to Trap Votes
You might have seen house mouse that often keeps on invading inner portions of human habitat; the voles are well known as the outdoor version of these house mouse. Voles prefer to live in vegetations as it helps them to enjoy a longer life; however, the average lifetime of these creatures is somewhere around 3 to 6 months only. Voles love to wonder in the weedy gardens, fallow plots and abandoned fields that give them easy access to grains and vegetables in routine. Experts say that voles are capable enough to cause huge damage to the property. They can easily dig for the bulbs or create burrows to collect some underground food including potatoes and roots. Hence, if you have voles in your premises, it is important to take immediate steps to take them out.
The most important fact to know about voles is that they have very fast reproduction rate. They can give birth to babies at least 10 times in a year and are able to reproduce five babies at a time. Voles can do havoc in your agricultural fields, and they often cause huge damage to the farmers and homeowners. That is why most people in the United States are searching for some methods to get rid of these creatures. People even try to use traps to capture them so that they can be released at the far end of the city from where they cannot find a return path.
The market is loaded with a wide range of vole traps. If you are planning to buy one, it is good to look for a live trap that has a small opening. One more important advice for trapping voles is that you should place the trap in the area where you find voles visiting more often. Now note that voles generally live in large number, so you cannot get rid of the trouble by using only one or two traps. In order to avail best results, it is important to place 12 to 24 traps within a few days so that these creatures can be finished completely. At the same time, when you are setting multiple traps, it is important to check them all in a routine so those rodents do not stay stuck inside for so long. While setting up a trap for catching voles, it is important to look for effective bait that can attract these rodents towards the trap. Some of the best options include butter, bread, cherry pits, small nuts, sunflower, oatmeal, mixed peanut butter, seeds, and gumdrops. Once the rodent is captured inside the trap, you need to carry it by wearing protecting gloves in hands and release the rodent far away from residential area. Make sure that the rodent is able to get enough sources for survival.
In case if you are not getting desired results by setting traps, another possible solution is taking help from professional vole exterminators. They can help you protect your property for the long run while ensuring proper sealing of all entry holes.

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.
