December Pest Control for Bryan and College Station
Now that the holidays are upon us, many of the daily Home and business pests around the Bryan and College Station area have are gone. What is left are those pesky critters that have learned to thrive alongside of humans. November pest control is all about wildlife and rodents. You might see a few ants now and then and insects such as cockroach, but the majority of what pesters us this time of year is wildlife.
Rodents can very much be a year-round problem for homeowners and businesses. As other pests, such as flies, ants, and mosquitoes disappear, the presence of rodents becomes amplified. Pair this with the fact that colder weather make homes and businesses a haven for critters looking for comfortable winter habitat and you suddenly have a rodent problem. It might be that you’ve been laying awake a night and hear those thundering footfalls galloping across your ceiling. All that noise from small roof rats makes it difficult to sleep. Worse still is the damage that rodents cause.
What’s up in your attic that they are tearing up to make nesting materials? What is their scat and urine ruining? Are they bringing disease and fleas into your home? Even if you do all the DIY chores and seal up holes, they are perfectly equipped to make their own holes and will happily do so to gain access to the warmth of your home or business.
Another rodent that is very much a pest are invasive squirrels. These animals cause a lot of destruction around homes. They dig up lawns, tear up roofing and vents and they can chew their way into your attic.
There are many places in a home for rodents to live and a lot of resources that make a home a perfect habitat for rats and mice. The good news is that rodent control is efficient, safe, and affordable. You don’t have to share your home with rodents and those galloping roof rats can find another ceiling to race about on all night.
Usually, we are talking about raccoon, possum, skunks but sometimes the wildlife around a home or business becomes bigger. A good example of this is the coyote. Not common but they will venture into a housing development to hunt. They are well known to kill small pets such as dogs and cats. They may also tip garbage cans and eat refuse. Bigger than a Coyote would be a cougar. Yes, they have been spotted in the area. Cougars are not often seen around homes, but they will venture in and across yards to reach other areas. The younger animals tend to roam more as they are looking for mates and hunting territory.

We offer humane ways of relocating animals and we have all the tools to safely capture and remove wildlife. We also offer complete and comprehensive pest control services throughout the Bryan and College Station communities.
