  • 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 Ellis 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 Midlothian animal control for wildlife issues.

During the mating season of squirrel the male and female will mate and the female will carry the pregnancy for gestation period of about 29-56 days base on the body size of the squirrel species. It is known that smallest squirrels usually have shorter gestation period than the giant squirrels. The mother usually give birth to about 2-8 babies known as kittens or kits. The babies are always born blind and always rely wholly on their mother for feeding and nurturing till about 2 to 3 months. Then, after about 7 to 8 weeks the young squirrel will be weaned and they will be free to move around and away from the nest. At this time they do not move so far from the nest. Some squirrel species usually have new litters at least two times in a year or after few months.
