  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Texas's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Texas's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Cameron county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Harlingen animal control for wildlife issues.

Harlingen Wildlife Removal Tip: How To Scare A Rat Away

Rats are one of the most determined types of animals which can invade any home. This is because while the homeowner may just be doing everything possible to ensure that they are gotten rid of from, they just keep on changing locations. There is nothing as frustrating as this as such will definitely get worse when they start destroying things around the home.

If you are one of those going through any of the above problems then you may want to act fast before things will get out of hand. Don't forget that these animals will get difficult to remove at some certain stages around your home. This means that the best time is actually now. This post will be showing you some of the most effective techniques that you can use to scare them away from your home.

Get A Cat

This can sometimes go to the extreme as such cat may just chase and kill the rats eventually. They are never friends and rats don't want to hear that there is a cat around a home. It scares them to death. Therefore, if you have always been against the idea of owning a cat as pet, you may want to start considering such from now. It is one of the most effective methods that you can ever think of.

Pepper Will Be Useful

The same way most humans and animals don't like pepper; that is how rats don't enjoy it. This is because of the nature of its smell. You need to ensure that you have put pepper in any of their favorite spots. The only thing that you will need to be doing is to ensure that you constantly put it after some hours to retain its choking smell.

Try Using Onions

This is also another very effective way of scaring them away. They hate the smell produced by onion. What you want to do is have the onions sliced and position them in areas where they hang out. You will be amazed at how scared they can be with such smell around.


This usually hurts them and as such, whenever they hear any sound, they usually like to change locations. It has been discovered to not only make them uncomfortable but also responsible for their ears bleeding. Just place a radio or mini sound system in their holes and they will take off.
