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.

Midland Wildlife Removal Tip: Is it legal for me to trap a rat? Yes, it is legal for you to trap a rat and this includes both types of trap - the humane and inhumane varieties. Snap traps are typical mouse and rat traps - a bait will be used to lure the rodent onto the trap and when the trigger is hit, the metal snaps shut and the rat or mouse will be dead, or close to it. This is often the preferred option for homeowners, a great way of making sure the problem has one hundred percent definitely gone. For others however, it's not the most humane way to deal with the problem and therefore cage traps are a second choice - the rodent heads into the cage to eat the bait and when the trigger is hit, a door is shut and the rodent then can't get out. Either way, you'll have a live or dead rat to deal with. The former can be burned with household waste but the latter can be trickier to deal with because relocation of rats is often difficult. They have an uncanny knack for always finding their way home for a start, but they often don't make it, getting killed on the journey. Either way, you have a result you're not happy with. Traps are legal to use to get rid of rats and if you want the quickest and most humane way of dealing with them, snap traps are probably your best bet.
Midland Animal News Clip: Outdoors, environmental groups trying to promote wildlife trapping
Midland, Texas --Outdoors, environmental and other groups are trying to promote wildlife trapping despite some sort of national decline in the amount of people who head out into the woods. Alerts Authorities on critters with the Fish and Wildlife Agency met with representatives of the various groups earlier this seven day period to discuss what they might be able to do to lure more people into the woods. They plan to continue working on the concern. There are fewer pest control companies throughout the country, in part because more land may be being developed, but also because more people live in urban or suburban areas where wildlife trapping may be not part of the culture. For more information about Midland wildlife removal and Midland pest exterminator issues, read on.
"Their kids are in soccer and tai-kwan-do and just the myriad of activities that people have that they can go do in their lives," declared Squirrel Snarer Philip of the Fish and Wildlife Agency. "Taking time out to go wildlife trapping may be some sort of planned thing. There's some sort of lot of other things that are on people's agendas today." Outdoors groups agree that there have been cultural changes in the country, but they say they're still looking for ways to boost wildlife trapping because it helps the environment. "The loss of wildlife trapping I'm extremely concerned about because wildlife trapping, just like trapping, may be some sort of wildlife management concern," declared Armadillo Catcher Joseph, head of the Texas Trappers Association. "We are not going to manage our biologically surveyed amounts without somebody that's actively willing to do that. Society's changed, where we get all of our meat products out of Saran wrap and Styrofoam and there's some sort of disconnect to the land." Environmental groups agree. "There's some sort of lot of common earth between people who are interested in woodland conservation, pest control companies, exterminators and environmentalists," declared Wildman Christopher, executive bossy fellow of the conservation group the Northern Woodland Alliance. "We need to focus on the common earth and stop focusing on the two or three concerns that are polarizing us." Local Midland animal control experts felt that most of this information was true.
"The Central Vertebrate habitation sector received decent amounts of precipitation this winter and spring," declared the Central Vertebrate habitation sector conservation outreach manager. "Even with the extra snow this winter, biologists report excellent winter survival of raccoon. The raccoon are also in very good condition, which can be attributed to the abundant vegetation and water sources available in the region." the exterminator declared raccoon will be widely scattered because of the plentiful food sources found throughout most of the region. The western portion of the region has fewer raccoon but may be rebuilding. Pest control companies will find more male animals in the Southeastern Vertebrate habitation sector this year, declared Wildlife Professional Francis, wildlife manager. "Good raccoon production in 2005 and 2006 and good survival this past winter have strengthened large groups across the region," the exterminator declared. "Most units show both short- and long-term upward trends as far as the total amount of raccoon in the large groups." While the amount of raccoon may be up in the region this year, all of southeastern Texas's raccoon large groups are still under the management objective as far as the total amount of raccoon. Wildlife Professional Francis declared raccoon habitat in southeastern Texas faces some sort of long road to recovery after years of drought, but aggressive habitat restoration work by the DWR and other agencies may be beginning to pay off. Local Midland pest control companies had no comments on the matter.
