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 Travis county animal services for assistance.

There is no free Lakeway animal control for wildlife issues.

Lakeway Wildlife Removal Tip: Do rodents chew Pex or other water pipe?

Having rodents in the house is just as bad and would bring you a lot more and worse damage than you could possibly ever imagine. Rodents are known to chew everything they come across and perhaps, that is the number one reason why you will need to keep the rodents out of your house.

Prevention for penetration

Keeping the rodents away is one of the best things to do. Therefore, prevention becomes absolutely necessary. But how can one effectively make sure that the rodents are out of his household? Well the following is a rundown of the possible solutions;

• Insulating the house and covering every entry point well. With so doing, the rats and the mice will have no entry point to the house.
• Providing some exit points for the animals. In case the animal is inside, you can provide a one way escape route for the animal that will not allow it to get back in.
• Prevention by trapping or poisoning the animals. If you would ask me, the two options aforementioned are the best. However, if they have proved not to work, therefore you can use these two methods to prevent the spread of the rodents in the house.

Rodent problems in the house

Intruding your property is one of the common problems with the rats. Destruction is another most common problem with the rodents in the house. Actually there have been thousands and thousands of cases reported of destruction on the pex pipes all around the house. When the pex pipes are destroyed, they start leaking water. In case it is an attic, then it may over the time become soaked thus making it very dangerous for people living in the house. Rodents do not only attack the pex piping’s, they also chew on other pipes. And thus, plumbers should be urged to install a piping system that is strong enough to withstand the rodents chew.

Why rodents will chew

Rodents have their teeth ever growing. Thus over the time, if not trimmed, the teeth will grow bigger and bigger closing in the mouth. To keep their teeth in position and to sharpen them, they have constantly chewed.


Rather than having far much problem of the rats’ infestation in the house and destruction of the pex pipes and others, it is best that you consider the prevention methods highlighted above.
