Urban Wildlife Trapping and Relocation
Squirrels by far do the most damage to homes, outdoor kitchens and attics, and their removal is one of the most common services that Integrity Pest Control performs. The Gray Squirrel is found throughout Texas, and can weight 1 to 2 pounds. They become a nuisance for homeowners by taking up residence in the attic, which they chew or enter through construction gaps. If they’re not found and removed in time, they can multiply — especially in the Spring.
Squirrels are also known to chew through facia boards and electrical wires, which, if worn down to expose copper, can be a fire hazard.
Integrity Pest Control carries out its trapping procedure outside of the structure, setting up baits and traps to ensure success. If possible, we can even install a one-way door to allow the squirrels to exit your home return to the wild, where they need to be.
Armadillos can cause serious damage to a lawn or a nicely landscaped area. However, most of the time, homeowners call us when they begin to be inconvenienced by large burrows. The holes often appear in places like underneath a concrete porch, the foundation of a house, or near gas/water lines. Their burrows also attract other animals.
Integrity Pest Control uses two methods to remove Armadillos from your property: trapping and relocation, and prevention, such as exclusion fencing that goes deep into the ground.
Raccoon and Possum Trapping
A creature of the night, raccoons prefer wooded areas near water and in natural habitats — but they can also end up in your backyards, decks, attics, and chimneys.
Damage to gardens may be relatively minor compared to the potential damage a raccoon can do to a house. Ripped off shingles, torn and displaced insulation, urine-stained areas and the spread of ectoparasites are some of the problems associated with raccoons inhabiting your home. They also carry a number of diseases, some of which can severely affect young children.
Like raccoons, possums can also thrive in urban and suburban settings, living under steps, porches, decks, tool sheds, attics, garages and underneath houses. They are not afraid of people, and will not be aggressive unless cornered.
Integrity Pest Control will trap and relocate these critters out of your yard or attic with a number of trapping and proofing techniques.
