Harris County is home to more than 30 different types of snakes, only six of which are venomous, and those are pretty rare.  But, with so many snakes in Harris County and the Houston area, you’re to encounter a snake more than once.  Whether you have a harmless snake in your garden or home, or discover a venomous one, it’s still pretty unsettling to find out you’ve got a snake in the kitchen or bathroom, snakes in the basement, or a snake in the yard.  One thing to keep in mind is snakes usually enter buildings to either den for the winter, or because they’re in search of a meal.  The presence of a snake in your home or commercial building may mean you also have a rodent problem, because the snake may have just followed the scent trail of rats, mice, or you may have voles or moles in your lawn or garden.  

The Harris County Animal Control Services of Texas, TX

Lost pets, barking dogs, loose cats, cows, horses, goats, sheep, or other domestic, farm or ranch animal issues need to be reported to The Harris County Animal Control Services: (281)999-3191 . They work with domestic animals and can provide information about licensing, vaccinations, lost pets, etc. Harris County does not offer free wildlife animal control services, nor do cities within Harris County .

We are professional wildlife removal contractors offering animal control solutions based in Texas.We pride ourselves on our professional trapping services, and on quality snake, bird, and animal removal.

The Critter Team removes all sorts of wild animals and birds from residential and commercial properties, including bats, snakes, pigeons, skunks, raccoons, swallows, woodpeckers, voles, beavers, and rodents of every kind. Wild animals on your property can damage vegetation and structures and reduce property value. They also bring disease and a host of insect pests with them, which can adversely affect you, your family, and your pets. In your walls, in your attic, or on your roof wild animals can keep you up at night and their urine and droppings create a horrific smell. After my technicians and I perform wild animal removal, we can provide cleanup, sanitization, and deodorization to help restore your property; we can also provide exclusion services to keep your wildlife problem from recurring. Whether the problem is a colony of bats in a building, raccoons in the attic, or destructive behaviors of critters such as squirrels, gophers and pigeons, we can solve it.

We resolve many types of wildlife control conflicts in Harris County and surrounding areas. Give me a call if you need expert animal removal and/or live wildlife trapping. We can also perform an inspection of your property to evaluate the problem.

The situations we resolve and main trapping and removal services we provide are: raccoon families in attics and chimneys, woodpeckers drilling siding. mud swallow nests on stucco, rats or squirrels thumping and bumping around inside walls and in attics, voles and gophers destroying lawns, skunks stealing pet food, bat infestations, and snakes living in crawlspaces and stone walls.

Along with physical damage and disease, wild animals also bring along disturbance and nuisance with all their commotion and smell. Raccoons and rats will fight all night and keep people awake; baby raccoons chirp and chitter like little birds; skunk smell takes the cake, but have you ever smelled a dead animal in your ventilation system? We have seen much, much more than these problems, but that is a general idea of the kinds of problems that I and my professional wildlife removal operators are prepared to solve.

Not only do my technicians and I trap and remove problem wild animals, we do a lot of other dirty work, too. Don’t hesitate to call us for dead animal removal, bat guano cleanup, pigeon waste removal, mouse dropping cleanup, decontamination, repairs, above ground and below ground rodent slick fencing, odor control for skunk spray, and the like. We are a full service pest control company with a wide range of animal control solutions.

For pigeon and bird control, bat removal, or relief from other pest animals, call our wildlife management experts. Many nuisance wildlife companies offer critter capture and control; our wildlife operators provide professional pest wild animal management. We remove the following AND MORE:

  • Raccoons from attics and chimneys

  • Voles that dig and tear up lawns and destroy root systems
