How We Solve Waco Wildlife Problems
It starts with your phone call. We answer our phones 24/7, and we will carefully listen to your wildlife problem. Every case is different, so we will ask appropriate questions to help
us understand the situation better. Questions like, "do you hear the noises at night or during the daytime?" or "what type of roof do you have?" After we have a general idea of your
situation, we can provide a ballpark price range, and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment to inspect your property.
INSPECTION: Once on site, we will perform a full inspection of your home and property. This allows us to use the correct strategy and
traps. If the animals are in an attic, a full building inspection is crucial, including the following:
- All ground-level areas, such as piper or A/C line entry & exit areas, A/C chase bottoms, ground-level vents, etc.
- All mid-level areas, such as dryer vents, siding gaps, first floor eaves or dormers, etc.
- We inspect the entire roof, including all plumbing stacks, ridge caps, vents, and other potential gaps or holes.
- We also inspect inside your attic, to identify animals and damage they have caused.
- If the animals are outside, we notice many subtle clues that will assist us in a successful strategy.
TRAPPING, EXCLUSION, REMOVAL: Once we understand what animal species we are dealing with, and the problem, we use the most effective means of removing the animals. We use dozens of different types of traps.
- Trapping - If trapping the animal(s) in live cage traps, trap type, set, and location are crucial to success.
- Exclusion - Oftentimes, we are able to simply set one-way doors or other exclusion devices that allow the animals inside a building to safely exit, but never get back inside.
- Removal By Hand - Sometimes we actually remove animals by hand, or with special tools like snare poles.
- The Law - In all cases, we obey state and local laws regarding wildlife, but aim to take the most humane approach.
ENTRY HOLE REPAIRS: Repairs are a crucial step in the wildlife removal process. In many cases, such as bat or rodent control, the job cannot be performed without detailed repairs, and in
all cases, sealing the entry holes shut ensures that no future wildlife will ever enter your home.
- 100% of the entry holes must be found, and sealed shut, or the job is not complete.
- Our repairs are professional contractor grade, look good, and when applicable we use steel, which rodents such as rats or squirrels are unable to chew through.
- We give a written guarantee on our repairs against any future animal entry.
ATTIC DECONTAMINATION SERVICES: It may be desirable to clean your attic after we've removed the animals. They can leave behind large amounts of droppings,
urine, hair, oils, food, nesting material, and so on. These remnants can attract insects like cockroaches, and the scent left behind can encourage new animals to chew their way into your
house. You might experience odor problems from the waste. It's possible that mold will grow on waste areas.
- We remove or vacuum all droppings, or remove all the soiled insulation.
- We fog the attic with a special enzyme-based cleaner that destroys any organic matter and deodorizes the space.
- We repair damage, such as ductwork, electrical wires, pipes, insulation, and more.
The above are just a brief explanation of some of our methods. I haven't even addressed the hundreds of other potential cases that we deal with, from bat exclusions, to poison-free rodent control, to dead animal removal, bird roosting
prevention, mole trapping in a yard, ground-based exclusion barriers around a shed, etc. etc. Just give us a call any time, and we can describe in detail how we will resolve your specific wildlife problem.

Raccoon Prevention Tips: How to Keep Raccoons Away
Raccoons are known for their ability to easily adapt to our homes and forage for food in the gardens. The rate at which
deforestation is taking place, they are not really left with much of a choice. If a raccoon takes up residence in your home,
it can be difficult to move them especially if the raccoon has her kits – young ones – with her. Let us look at some prevention
tips that can ensure that these animals stay away from your home.
1. How to keep them out of your garden
To keep raccoons out of your yard you will need a very good fencing. The fence will have to be very strong because only a heavy
duty fence can prevent these intelligent trouble-makers. You can also try using a motion sensitive water sprayer that helps keep
these animals at bay.
2. How to keep them out of you garbage cans
Raccoons use their hands a lot like we do. This means that it is fairly easy for them to pry open bins and cans which are not
secured properly. Seal your garbage cans tightly or keep them inside a secure building. You can strap the lids with bungee cords
to make it secure or use a lock to secure the can.
3. How to keep them away from your pond
Raccoons love water, especially if it has fishes in them. To keep raccoons away, the last thing you must do is feed them and
make a food source available for them. Install a large gauge steel mesh which can cover your pond so that the fish is inaccessible
for the raccoons.
4. How to keep them away from your home
Blocking off access is the best way to prevent raccoons entering your home. Inspect your home and look for holes or crevices that may
be used by raccoons. Seal them off with sheet metal or heavy screening. You may want to hire a professional to this work.
Cut off branches that are close to your home can be used by raccoons to climb into your house. You can wrap trees, trunks with metal
sheets so that raccoons will not be able to climb up. While there are no approved repellents that you can buy to keep raccoons away,
there are a few deterrents that are commercially available like mixtures of coyote urine and other natural repellents that can help you
keep these notorious animals away from your home.
