In many ways, wildlife in Houston can be extremely dangerous, especially if they invade your yard or, worse, get into your home. No matter the animal: squirrel, skunk, raccoon, or any kind of wildlife, they can do extensive damage to your home, pose health risks, and create hazardous conditions.
If left to occupy your yard, these animals can be a problem for your domestic pets or farm animals when they are outdoors. Some larger wildlife can burrow their way into your home and compromise its strength and integrity. Smaller wildlife animals can chew through things such as rubber, plastic, and insulation. They also have been known to get into open plumbing pipes or gaps around utility cables and wiring. Electrical wiring can be dangerous if gnawed on by an animal because it can cause a fire.
Once inside your home, wildlife pests will leave urine and feces wherever they go, as well as germs, bacteria, and parasites that can make you, your family, and pets very sick. Not only that, they can rip apart and chew on furniture and personal belongings as well as get into the food in your kitchen and pantry. All of this can leave a terrible odor and an awful mess for you to clean up.
Do-It-Yourself methods of removing wildlife can be costly, time-consuming, messy, and often fail or make the problem worse. So, if you hear noises in your walls, ceiling, and attic, find animal droppings, or see holes in your outdoor vents, walls, roof pitches or other areas, reach out to the professionals at Modern Pest Control if you live in the Greater Houston area.
We know how to resolve wildlife issues, efficiently and effectively, and we are ready to help. One of our highly trained pest control technicians will thoroughly inspect your yard to determine what animals are invading your property, and locate entry points in your home. Once they have gathered all of the information that they need, they will put together and implement a program that will target the specific problem animals, which may involve trapping devices and exclusion. That way, once the wildlife has been removed, they won’t be able to return.
