Wildlife Removal Experts You Can Trust
ABC is happy to help homeowners with any type of problem with rodents or other animals on residential properties. Our wildlife control specialists know exactly where these animals like to hide and can come up with a comprehensive plan to remove these animals from your property, and prevent them from gaining future entry into your home.
We are most commonly called for issues concerning:
An ABC specialist will determine where these creatures are living and nesting, then set traps to remove them from your property. When all these creatures are out of your attic, crawl spaces, garage, sheds and living spaces, we will seal off entry points that wildlife could use to gain entry to your home in the future and set up barriers in areas that can not be sealed off, including vents and chimneys.
Signs of larger pests in and around your home
The thought of a large creature greeting you at your trash cans is scary, but the thought that these uninvited guests may have entered your home is more than enough to seek wildlife control services.
There are several signs you may have been visited by a rodent or other large pest:
- Droppings, which can vary in size from a grain of rice to a much larger size.
- Burrows or nesting sites, which could be in the dirt in and around your home providing shelter for rodents.
- Gnaw marks on wood, wires and other household items.
- Noises coming from your attic, chimney, within your walls or from under your deck or patio.
- Overturned trash cans or damage to pet food or bird seed containers.
Wildlife removal technicians can advise you on how to make your property less attractive to animals. Advice may include bringing pet food and water bowls inside at night, removing food and moisture sources in your outdoor spaces and cutting back vegetation around the perimeter of your home which can provide a refuge for any unwelcome visitors.

All wildlife is potentially dangerous, but rats pose a particular danger because they spoil food and carry a host of serious diseases transmittable to humans. The two kinds of rats you will find in Dallas/Fort Worth are roof rats and Norway rats—the same rats usually associated with big-city subway systems.
ABC will send over a specialist to design a rodent control plan tailored for your home’s unique situation. We will conduct a thorough inspection, identifying the type of rodent with which we’re dealing and any conditions supporting their habitation. We will find and seal all entry and exit points, large and small, and strategically install traps. And don’t worry—we’ll come back to collect the traps, too.
What can I do to prevent a rat/mouse infestation?
The most effective way to prevent a rodent infestation is to clear away any food or water sources that might attract and support them.
But sometimes rodents will take up residence in your attic or behind your walls, despite your best efforts. This is especially common in the winter months, when rodents seek out shelter and warmth.
How do they get in? Usually through hidden cracks and holes which may be hard to locate if you’re not a professional.
