When it comes to pests there are some that can raise more concern than others. Nuisance wildlife critters are some of the pests that can strike fear in most people. Unlike a small creepy-crawly pest, many of the wildlife can be quite large and are able to attack when they feel like they are being cornered. If nuisance wildlife ends up around your home, garage, attic or patio; you want to stay away from them and call a pest control company that specializes in wildlife trapping and control. These critters can feel scared and under attack and will lash out and could cause bodily damage to the person that happens to be in their path.
A-Tex Pest Management lists nuisance wildlife that is common in Greater Austin, Texas
Raccoon Control: A raccoon is a pest that is a major problem in many areas. They are easily identified by their black mask across their face and their black and grey striped tail. They also have very human-like hands and can be seen picking up food and other items with their paws. They have become very adapted to living near human habitats and are known for digging in garbage cans. They are most commonly found in attics, chimneys and crawl spaces. They can start to set up a nest and reproduce in your home and yard not to mention make a mess while they are at it. Like skunks, they are one of the most common carriers of rabies.
Squirrel Control: Although squirrels mostly live in the trees and out in the parks and forests they can be a problem in and around houses. Squirrels can be grey, brown or red and usually have a large bushy tail and weigh about a pound. They will come into a home or attic to find a spot to nest. They can cause damage to the construction and wiring of a home which can become dangerous. If you have a problem with squirrels in your home you want to have them taken care of as soon as possible.
Skunk Control: One of the biggest problems when it comes to finding a skunk near your home is that it can really cause some discomfort when they spray. Skunk odors are unarguably one of the most unbearable odors to behold. The odor is extremely strong and can linger for a long amount of time. Skunk spray can spread reach distances of 15 feet and the smell can permeate around several blocks in the neighborhood. You should never try to remove a skunk yourself as there are disease risks associated. If you are unfortunate to be sprayed in the eyes, mouth or nose, it is possible to contract rabies through the spray. Skunks are one of the most common rabies carriers and can also transmit this viral disease through their bite.
