Living in the Texas Hill Country can be wonderful with all its great wildlife and scenery, except when that wildlife decides to come in and live with you. This is often the case when it comes to squirrels. They frequently enter attics and cause damage to pipes, electrical wires, insulation, and attic screens or vents. Maintaining screens and vents on the roof are very important in preventing a squirrel problem. Once squirrels have taken up residence in your attic or even under the home it can be very difficult to get them out. Squirrels are very smart and tend to shy away from new objects around their nesting and feeding sites. This makes pre-baiting a must. A thorough inspection prior to baiting, trapping, or sealing of holes is important so that you can identify when and where they are entering and exiting. Please give us a call as soon as you here that dreaded visitor that has just moved in the attic.
Raccoons, Opossums, Skunks and even Ring-Tail Cats are all living here somewhere close by. Ever wonder why the dog food bowl is empty in the morning when you go outside. It's probably your friendly racçoon or opossum living close by. You can also blame that overturned trash can and the mess next to it on them. Just like many other animals in our neck of the woods it's just something you learn to accept. The best way to solve a Varmint problem is to prevent a problem from occurring by securing trash can lids, picking up food bowls, and storing any outdoor food products in tightly sealed containers. Once the word gets out there is food at your house all the raccoons and opossums will be there every night. In some instances they will take up residence in your attic or under your home and that can be a bad situation. Fecal matter and urine can become a human health problem for infestations that have been ongoing or contain multiple animals. So don't wait, please give us a call as soon as you here that dreaded visitor that has just moved in.
