Common Problems Caused by Armadillos
While they can be cute, Armadillos can cause big problems because they dig to find food and to make their burrows. If an armadillo chooses to make their home close to your home’s foundation, this can cause significant damage and possible cracks as well as just being an eyesore to your yard and landscape when they are looking for food. They can dig up sprinkler and irrigation lines, cause garage door and siding damages, and spread disease and sickness to your loved ones. Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control provides humane trapping and removal of the armadillos and can provide an exclusion plan to prevent their return.

Bats are typically viewed as dark, mysterious creatures of the night. Bats living in or around your home can be dangerous. They are one of the top carriers of rabies, and bat guano carries a fungus that can cause a lung infection called histoplasmosis, among other illnesses. If you believe you have a bat in your home, call the Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control specialists at (817) 606-7607 or (972) 954-9244 to help. We provide quick, convenient bat removal throughout the Fort Worth, Arlington, and Dallas, TX areas to restore safety and order in your home.
The Dangers of Bats Around Your Home or Business
Bats are small, flying mammals that feed on bugs and live in dark enclosed spaces. Because of this, people often find them in attic spaces, barns, and sheds. Although most species of bats aren’t known for biting humans, they are dangerous. Bat guano is typically found in piles outside roosting areas and contains a very dangerous fungus that can be inhaled and cause severe lung infections. They are also the second most common carrier of rabies, following only raccoons. When bats roost in your home or shed, they can infect the insulation and an even contaminate natural water systems. If you think you have bats hiding in your home, shed, or barn, call the Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control experts to help. We provide bat removal and cleanup throughout Dallas, Arlington, and Fort Worth, TX to ensure your home is left safe, clean, and harmless.
Moles and Voles
Moles can create tunnels throughout your yard that are a nuisance and can make mowing and even walking a difficult chore. Small mouse-like animals called voles can also be attracted by moles because these small creatures use mole tunnels to get around.
While moles don’t cause harm to your lawn and plants, voles do. In fact, they eat grass, plants, and flowers throughout your yard as well as destroying root systems. The Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control team can help you defend your home against moles and voles by offering mole control options throughout the Dallas, Fort Worth and Arlington areas. Call us today at (817) 606-7607 or (972) 954-9244 to learn more about mole control in your area.
Are Moles Harmful to Your Lawn?
Moles are very small animals that are sensitive to light. Therefore, they use underground tunnels to get around. Moles are usually 6-8 inches long and feed on grubs, earthworms, and other insects. While their tunnel systems may make it difficult to get around your yard without tripping, they don’t do much damage. The tunnels, however, may interrupt the root system of very thick grass. These animals aren’t known for being threatening to humans, but they are capable of carrying diseases. Like all wild animals, they are capable of carrying rabies, so it’s a good idea to call a professional for mole removal. The Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control team provides humane methods of mole control throughout the Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington, TX areas so you can be sure your lawn is healthy and mole free. Call us today to schedule your appointment at (817) 606-7607 or (972) 954-9244 and learn how we can help rid your property of moles.
Porcupine Removal and Control
Porcupines are often considered to be dangerous because of their quills. These animals are attracted to food, especially salt and wood, which makes homes a prime target. Typically, however, they don’t take up residence near humans or homes and will move on quickly. If you have a porcupine that has decided to stick around your Arlington, Fort Worth, or Dallas, TX home, get humane porcupine trap services when you call the Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control experts at (817) 606-7607 or (972) 954-9244.
Porcupines seldom stay in your yard for an extended amount of time, but while they are there, they can cause damage to your landscape and pose a safety threat to pets. Porcupines eat wood, so they are apt to snack on siding, decks, and trees in your yard. They are also fans of salt so anything with sweat is also fair game. Porcupines aren’t aggressive animals, but they will slap with their quilled tails if they feel threatened. While not deadly, porcupine quill attacks can cause severe discomfort and illness. They can also cause infection, especially in pets. If you find a porcupine in your yard, simply remove pets and children and call the Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control experts for help. We can perform porcupine trap and removal all over the Arlington, Dallas, and Fort Worth, TX area to ensure that your home stays quill-free.

A Little About The Possum
Possums are occasional carriers of rabies and fleas, and the ticks they harbor can transmit Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. The possum is a unique mammal with many distinguishing physical and behavioral attributes. This animal is quite shy and inoffensive, but will often hiss and bear its teeth when threatened.
Their diet consists primarily of carrion, insects, amphibians, earthworms, small mammals, vegetables, and fruits, while apples and corn are favorites. The possum is an adaptable, nocturnal, solitary animal that wanders in woody and open areas along rural and suburban habitats. They are dependent on others for their homes and cover so they are often found under decks, crawl spaces, sheds, and attics. They are expert swimmers and climbers, aided by their naked, prehensile tail, and like to follow fence lines and hedge lines.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEMPT TO PERFORM POSSUM CONTROL ON YOUR OWN.
Possums are loaded with diseases that are transferable to humans and pets. Possum control should only be done by a trained wildlife control specialist. They are able to bite very hard and can take fingers off with ease. If possums are around your yard, under your house, or in your attic give us a call at (817) 606-7607 or (972) 954-9244 to speak to a Wildlife Specialist.

Why Are Skunks Dangerous?
Skunk odor is one of the most unbearable odors known to mankind. Skunk smell is very strong and lasts for a long time. The yellow substance that the skunk sprays can reach distances of 15 feet. If you are in the line of fire, you will receive a dose that you will never forget. Skunk removal is not for the faint of heart and there are disease risks associated with removing a skunk. If you are sprayed in the eyes, mouth, nose or other mucous membranes, it is possible to contract rabies through the spray. If you see a skunk in or near your home, it’s always a good idea to call a professional skunk removal service such as Dallas Fort Worth Wildlife Control to help.
Skunks are classified as a pest species due to their odor, and occasionally, digging. Although they pose no real threat to humans, they can carry diseases such as rabies and roundworms. The most common complaints include:
- Skunk is living under deck or porch
- Skunk has sprayed in the vicinity
- Skunk has sprayed a pet dog
- Skunks are digging holes in the yard
- Skunks living under crawl space
Wild Animal Removal Methods and Their Usages
There are many forms of humane animal and wildlife removal that don’t involve the use of chemicals, electricity, or killing. These methods sometimes take longer removal times but offer much more humane and safe outcomes.
Habitat Modification: Many times, an animal is attracted to your home because of particular needs that are being met, whether it’s food, shelter, or water. Removing the reason for the animals’ visits will, in essence, remove the animal. Typically, this includes simple measures like cutting brush that’s around your property or removing puddle areas and removing certain types or areas of vegetation.
Home Entry and Exit Repair: Animals such as squirrels, bats, and raccoons usually enter and exit a space from the same point every time. Repairing the damaged area can prevent the animal from returning. However, these methods are not ideal for animals like rodents and skunks.
Animal Exclusion: In some circumstances, an animal can be kept out of an area with the use of materials like netting, fences, and even cylinders. These materials are great for larger animals such as foxes or raccoons but can pose expense and care problems for larger areas.
Mechanical Devices: Used to scare critters away, these devices repel animals by creating a threatening sound displaying another type of threat. Mechanical owls are mechanical deterrents that are commonly used for mice and other birds.
