Many of Texas's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in and around our homes. For example, some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for Opossum or Rat Infestations. We specialize in solving wildlife problems, from Feral Cats to Skunks, we do it all.
Skunks are usually classified as a pest species due to their odor, and occasionally, digging. The most common complaints include the following:
For these reasons, many people wish to have this nuisance animal trapped and removed. However, trappers must take care to avoid being sprayed.
Opossums are very common in urban areas, more common, in fact, than in wild areas. They are often nomadic, so sometimes they'll just wander about from place to place. But they do oftentimes choose to live in one place for a long time, and they especially seem to like man-made structures. I often find opossums in the house, and as stated, I very commonly find them in attics. They seem to really like living in the walls of homes, and they often live under houses, where they can climb up the walls or the hole under the bathtub outlet. I've also seen Opossum in the basement. They love sheds, decks, or any small area they can climb under. They frequently get under mobile homes or trailer homes
