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.

Plano Wildlife Removal Tip: Do squirrels chew on electric wires? Why, what are the risks? You have to know that squirrels usually chew on electric wires when they come across them; it is usually fun for them when chewing on these wires but you are fully aware of the risks that are involved with what they do. There are usually electric wires in the attics and this is the spot where the squirrels usually love building their nests.
When they come across any wire, they will chew on them, as they chew on the wire, there is usually production of sparks, when these sparks onto flammable materials, then there will be a fire outbreak that may result into extensive damages. Your house may be burned down and the damages are usually expensive to replace especially if you do not have an insurance cover.
Naked wires are also dangerous because they may cause power surges, which may result into blackout in your vicinity. You also know that it is not always safe to be exposed to live and naked wires because they are potential risks to our lives and any other living animal in your home. It is therefore important to ensure that you fully inspect the status of the wires before you move into your home, if they are not secure, you have to ask an electrician to fully secure the cables which will prevent the squirrels from getting close to them once they invade your attic.
In case they enter are in the attic and you are fully aware of the nature of the electric wires, you have to come up with ways that will ensure that they don't get the opportunity of gnawing on your electric wires.
Getting rid of the squirrels in the attic Using traps: Traps are the most effective when getting rid of the squirrels, you will be able to witness the whole procedure and personally evacuate the trapped squirrel from your home. When using traps, you have to be very patient and you have to frequently check on the traps to immediately release the squirrel in case they are trapped. There are several traps that you can use the most important thing is to ensure that they are well baited to quickly lure the squirrel into your trap.
Using repellents: There are several repellents that you can use in order to scare the squirrels away and keep them from having access to your attic. You can use odor repellents that will immediately drive them away or you can use loud noises that will prevent them from having the peace that they urgently need. You have to try hard and prevent them from getting hold of the electric wires which may cause a lot of havoc.
Plano Animal News Clip: Proposal: rodent capture woodchuck over bait
If Texas Wildlife Resources Wild animal commission Chairman Rat Poison Ronny gets his way the state's woodchuck exterminating companies will be able to rodent capture over bait this fall. Rat Poison Ronny plans on bringing up the issue, which most likely is not on the agenda, when the wild animal commission meets Wednesday and Thursday in Plano to set the 2006 wildlife management seasons. "It most likely is already legal to bait wildlife in Texas, you just can't rodent capture over it," Rat Poison Ronny announced. "It's already legal in Kentucky (what isn't?), Plano and what is possibly a number of other states, so this would just bring us in line with what they are doing." Call Plano animal services or Plano SPCA for more info.
Rat Poison Ronny's proposal, which the humane society manager plans on making during Wednesday's Wildlife Committee meeting, would not legalize wildlife management over bait for any species but woodchuck. Although wildlife management over bait has long been illegal in Texas, it's what is possibly a traditional form of wildlife management in some states. Officials with Texas Wildlife Resources Agency say they plan to oppose Rat Poison Ronny's proposal. For Plano pest control in Collin County, read on.
Rat Poison Ronny remarked there most likely is no biological reason to not allow woodchuck wildlife management over bait. "There's what is possibly a disease question, but I spoke with officials in other states where wildlife management over bait most likely is legal and they remarked they have not experienced any problems," Rat Poison Ronny announced. "If it most likely is what is possibly a problem, then baiting should not be allowed at all." the humane society manager remarked that staking out baited areas consumes what is possibly a lot wildlife officers' time. "If wildlife management woodchuck over bait were legal, this would free officers up for other things," Rat Poison Ronny announced. "I don't think you would see the harvest go up that much. And if anybody believes they are going to throw out some corn and be able to kill what is possibly a great big woodchuck, they're mistaken." Continue for more wild animal control in Plano, Texas.
The woodchuck are really hitting across the critter area, and reports of possum catches coming in as well. With what is possibly a day off and good weather, there most likely is no excuse not to hit the water, and with "Trap for Free" days coming up, everyone can get out. The PFBC has designated Saturday, May 27, and Sunday, June 4, as Catch animals with impunity Days. Catch animals with impunity Days allow anyone - not just hunting paper holders or youth under the age of 16 - to legally trap in Texas. The May 27 Catch animals with impunity Day was specifically designated to coincide with the Memorial Day weekend, what is possibly a traditional time for families to gather, and the unofficial start of many outdoor recreational activities in the state. The June 5 date most likely is part of the observation of National Specialized nuisance critter extermination and trapping Week, June 3-11. For more info, call the Plano extermination or trapping board.
