Gatesville TX Bat Removal and Exclusion

Gatesville wildlife like bats in an attic can be a nightmare. Not only do bats cause structural damage with the accumulation of guano, but they also present health risks. It’s a well-known fact that bats are carriers of rabies and can transmit this fatal disease with an unnoticed scratch or bite. 

Bat removal in Gatesville Texas is typically done in a multi step process. First we inspect the home to find all of the bat entry points as well as areas that are potential entry points. After all of the openings are located, a seal up is performed to funnel the bats down to only using the main entry points. At these points, bat excluders are placed, which are one way valves that allow the bats to exit and not re-enter the structure.

Once bats have been removed from the structure and the remaining opening are sealed up, any necessary guano clean up must be done.  Mainly because of the health hazards involved with bat droppings and the dangers of sweeping them up or using a conventional vacuum to get rid of the guano. 

Gatesville TX Bird Control and Nest Clean Up

picture of nuisance bird in Corpus ChristiNuisance Gatesville wildlife like birds can cause a mess that shocks the majority of homeowners. When professional bird control and bird removal is needed, it’s usually because birds have taken up residence inside of an attic or an exhaust vent. Since attics are seldom visited, attics can have unbelievable amounts of nesting that accumulates over years, many times filling several contractor bags when cleaned up. Bird nesting can carry bird mites, ticks, fleas and parasites.

Bird removal and wildlife control in Gatesville from exhaust vents usually hits its peak around May and June. The most common species causing the need to get rid of birds from vents is black birds and starlings. These nuisance wildlife like birds will clog vents and build nests in attics that can reach heights over 6 feet. Our bird control and wildlife removal services include baby bird removal, deterrents, nesting clean out, adult bird removal from vents and bird control to prevent future bird problems in vents and attics.

Many times, we find that birds also have attracted other nuisance Gatesville wildlife such as raccoons and squirrels, causing an added problem. For this reason bird nesting must be removed from attic spaces because of the attractive odors that it holds. When clogged into exhaust vents, fire hazards present themselves.

If you have a Gatesville bird removal and wildlife control problem and would like to know how to stop birds from nesting in vents or how to keep birds out of your attic give our professional wildlife control and wildlife removal experts a call.

Squirrel Control and Prevention

A few signs that you may have Gatesville squirrels in your attic are the type of noises in the attic and the time that you are hearing the noise. Wildlife like squirrels tend to move very quickly and will run back and fourth, often even playing or fighting with one another. Since they are diurnal, squirrel activity is usually heard during the day.

One of the problems with Gatesville squirrels in an attic is that since they are rodents they like to gnaw. Gnawing is often seen on support beams, insulation boards and the worst of all, wires. It is a known fact that 30,000 fires annually are attributed to rodents gnawing wires in attics.

Our Gatesville squirrel removal and wildlife control process is typically done by either setting baited traps near the entry points or multi-catch traps right over their entry points to catch them as they enter or exit. Removing Gatesville squirrels in an attic will produce on average 3-5 squirrels, however, in some instances, there can be many more or just a solitary squirrel.

Gatesville Feral Hog Trapping

Trapping is a common method utilized by sportsmen and landowners. Live trapping enables the individual to harvest the animal, fatten it up, or sell it. It also allows numerous individuals to be caught at once without an active participant. Several types and designs of live traps can be utilized. The most common design is a 4 foot by 8 foot heavy duty cage with a spring door, root door, or drop door. Snares can also be used effectively when placed under fences in travel ways that surround active areas; however non-target animals may also be captured. In some areas of Texas, aerial gunning from a helicopter is an efficient technique. There are currently no birth control, toxicants or repellents registered for the control of feral hogs.

Gatesville, TX Snake Removal Services

image of copperhead snake in Corpus Christi TexasLooking for snake removal services in Gatesville Texas? Snakes can be found in most backyards, parks, and woodlands throughout Texas. Many species are secretive, spending most of their time underground or under cover. Active gardeners may occasionally see small ringneck, worm, red-bellied, brown, earth, and crowned snakes. None of these species are much bigger than a large earthworm and do not bite. Several larger snake species also frequent backyards, especially corn and rat snakes, as well as racers. These larger snakes will eat mice, rats, and occasionally birds and their eggs. 

Occasionally, snakes searching for rodents or eggs, or a place to shed their skin, will take refuge in barns, crawl spaces underneath homes, or sometimes in a home. The best way to keep snakes from entering your home or other building is to prevent snakes and snake food (rodents) from entering your home. Closing up all possible entrance locations is a must. Next, a rodent control program should be put in place to eliminate the food attraction for snakes. Venomous Snakes Of Texas
