COMMON PESTS

Our staff will monitor your field, landscape, or buildings to identify which pests are present, how many there are, or what damage they've caused. Correctly identifying the pest is key to knowing whether a pest is likely to become a problem and determining the best management strategy.

After monitoring and considering information about the pest, its biology, and environmental factors, we can decide whether the pest can be tolerated or whether it is a problem that warrants control. If control is needed, this information also helps you select the most effective management methods and the best time to use them.

  • ANTS They swarm. The bite. Seems like they are everywhere and in to everything. Check out the online ANT CAM and watch as these leaf ants colonize.

  • ARMADILLOS In North Texas their primary food source is grubs and worms. They often tear up lawns and flower beds seeking such prey. Armadillos are known to devastate land scape yards, especially in times of drought.

  • BATS Bats typically roost in caves or hollow trees, but have become very adept at using our attics. They only need an opening around one quarter inch to enter.

  • BEAVERS Beavers are large aquatic rodents known for damning up streams and taking down trees. Trapping is the best method for removing beaver from a property.

  • BIRDS Once they take up residence they are quite messy and can be quite a nuisance. Grackles, pigeons, and sparrows being the most common offenders in North Texas.

  • FOXES The fox is a scavenger carnivorous dog, generally found in urban city areas in the northern hemisphere. Foxes can be a pest in cities as they often get into rubbish bins and trash cans, as a primary food source.

  • MICE Mice can be harmful pest at times. They can damage, contaminate, and eat crops, as well as spread diseases through their parasites and feces.

  • MOLES Moles constantly dig tunnels beneath the surface looking for grubs and worms. These tunnels can damage the roots of our lawns and have even been known to kill sections of grass.

  • OPOSSUM Opossums are frequently ridden with fleas, which often infest our homes after the opossum takes up residence in our attic or crawlspace.

  • RACCOON Raccoons love to take up residency in our chimneys and attics. They often destroy air conditioning vents and contaminate the insulation.

  • RATS The rat is a small scavenger mammal that has proved to be a pest in both urban and rural areas where rats are normally present due to an abundance of food.

  • SKUNKS Skunks commonly burrow under buildings, and into crawl spaces, often filling the entire structures with their scent.

  • SNAKES Most snakes found in North Texas are harmless, however there are some that can potentially be deadly. For this reason no one should ever handle any snake before a proper identification has been made.

  • SQUIRRELS These rodents often chew through fascia, or soffit boards, and roof vents to gain access to our attics. Once inside the real danger begins as they are notorious for chewing wires, which is a major fire hazard.
