Houston Wildlife Removal: Rodent Control Services

Wildlife Removal Experts You Can Trust

ABC is happy to help homeowners with any problem with rodents or other animals on residential properties. Our wildlife control specialists know exactly where these animals like to hide and can develop a comprehensive plan to remove them from your property and prevent them from gaining future entry into your home.

Our most common wildlife removals are for small animal pests:

  • Rats
  • Mice
  • Bats
  • Raccoons
  • Opossums
  • Squirrels
  • Skunks
  • Birds

An ABC small animal control specialist will determine where these creatures live and nest, 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

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 a small animal or rodent has visited you:

Wildlife removal technicians can advise you on how to make your property less attractive to animals. Advice may include:

Frequently Asked Questions

How soon can you come out?

We understand that once you see signs a mouse, rat or another pest has been on your property, you want to find a solution—fast. Give us a call and we will send a pest control expert to your home as soon as possible to inspect your property and recommend a course of action.

What does your rodent exclusion warranty cover?

ABC customers who sign up for our Rodent Exclusion service gain peace of mind knowing that our technicians will come back regularly to check traps. If you see a rat or mouse between these service calls, let us know. We will return to your property in between scheduled visits, at no additional cost to you.

Unfortunately, some properties are more susceptible to rodent re-infestations than others. For example, spaces between Spanish tiles make it easy for rodents to nest and find their way inside. Likewise, pier and beam structures are vulnerable to rodent activity because they have large crawl spaces underneath that can’t be completely sealed off. Since we cannot guarantee results in these cases, our traditional warranty does not extend to these types of properties. When we have our initial conversation with you about your rodent problem, we will go over the treatment plan we’d recommend to best meet your needs, given the unique characteristics of your property and your particular infestation.

How can I prevent a rodent or another type of wildlife from making my property its home?

It’s much easier to prevent rodents and other pests from entering your property than to deal with them once they are there. Homeowners can take the following preventative measures to help guard against these pests:

  • Seal cracks, gaps and holes along your home’s exterior. Although it’s unlikely you have any spaces for raccoons to enter your home, keep in mind that mice can squeeze through holes the size of a nickel, while rats can find their way inside through gaps the size of a half dollar.
  • Remove potential food sources. Make sure you seal pet or birdseed tightly and that your trash cans are closed securely. Inside your home, clean up spills quickly, keep your food stored in containers with lids and put your dishes in the dishwasher after you conclude your meals.

Make your yard less hospitable for pests. Keep your outdoor spaces neat and tidy by keeping up with mowing, pruning and trimming, so there are fewer places for these animals to hide. Keep wood piles away from your home and remove possible nesting sites, like old tires.

“So far the service we've been getting is as scheduled. However, this time I was not notified 30 minutes prior to arrival as originally told. The front looks great as usual. The backyard wasn't edged as nice as the front (or at all?), and I really would have appreciated deep edging around our firepit. Addendum 12/8/23: Changed 3 stars to 5 stars for follow-up service! After the above review, I was contacted by ABC in regards to my initial review. Anne was very courteous and eager to send someone out to follow up on my concerns. Arrangements were made that met my schedule, and the crew was very prompt in their arrival on said scheduled date. Our backyard is now 10 times better. Granted, there is still clean up to do on our part, but now it will be so much easier. Certainly worth the subscription price based on customer service alone! Photos depict final work first vs initial service.”
