Houston Wildlife Removal: Rodent Control Services
Finding a rodent or wild animal on your property is alarming for most homeowners. As Houston's leading wildlife removal company, ABC pest control services help residential home and commercial business owners deal with nuisance animals. Small animals are often responsible for many problems, as they can knock over trash cans, spread diseases, and even cause fires by chewing through electrical wiring. If you've spotted these unwanted guests around your home or have seen signs of wildlife activity, you should know you can rely on ABC Home and Commercial for wildlife removal and rodent control in Houston.
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:
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:
- Droppings can vary in size from a grain of rice to a much larger size.
- Burrows or nesting sites could be in the dirt in and around your home, providing shelter for rodents.
Gnaw marks on wood, wires, and other household items.
- Noises come from your attic, chimney, within your walls, or 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.
- Cutting back vegetation around your home’s perimeter can provide a refuge for unwelcome visitors.
If these signs seem familiar, contact us today for a free consultation.

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.

What Our Customers Are Saying
“ABC is top notch. They came out right away to inspect for an estimate and offered a very thorough explanation as to what needed to be done to fix our issues. They provided our service the very next day and worked in the rain and in the dark, making sure that nothing was left undone before they left. I feel comfortable that they have taken care of our problem and I can sleep better tonight. Christopher was so great! Thank you ABC! I feel really good about our decision in choosing you to take care of our home moving forward!”
“Marco did an awesome job of running the project. He made good suggestions that worked out well for landscaping our backyard. He also went the second mile to help solve the small issues that arise when this type of work is performed. My wife and I are very happy with our beautiful new backyard which came at a fair price.”
While an infestation of something like cockroaches, ants or spiders might be more apparent, knowing whether your home is housing termites can be more difficult.
