5 Most Common Animals You’ll See In Texas & When To Call For Wildlife Removal

Encountering wild animals can be interesting and fun under the right conditions. Unfortunately, anytime you see one in or around your home it may be dangerous to you and your family. While wild animals make look fuzzy or cute, keep your distance and don’t approach them under any circumstances. Here are the top five animals to watch for in Texas and tips on when to call for professional help.

1. Raccoons

Because they are nocturnal, raccoons roaming about during the daytime are usually easily frightened and quick to attack if they feel threatened. They are one of the most aggressive creatures animal control officers have to deal with, so never approach one. 

2. Opossums

While these creatures are not usually aggressive, they are more easily frightened and agitated during the day since they are also nocturnal. Easily mistaken for large rats, there is always a possibility they have rabies and you should always call wildlife control if you see one in a residential area.

3. Armadillos

These animals use their sharp claws to dig and are very easily startled. They are dangerous mostly because of the wide variety of diseases they can carry. Any type of contact with them can result in contracting something as deadly as leprosy, so stay far away.  

4. Fox Squirrels

Although squirrels are more likely to run away from humans than attack them, they can do major damage to residential homes. They may attempt to chew through your electrical wires or build homes in your attic. Wildlife removal will pick up a trapped squirrel, but you’ll need to call pest control if you have a home infestation.

5. Rat Snakes

Thankfully, this type of snake is non-venomous. You must still use caution if you see one in your home or in the wild, as they are extremely aggressive. Because it can be difficult to tell the difference between rat snakes and rattle snakes, it is best to call wildlife control if you see one in your home.

Any time you encounter a wild animal in a populated area or your home, it is best to leave it alone. If the creature seems injured or unusually aggressive you should call wildlife control. If you are wondering, “where is the wildlife control near me?” you can call Terminix at 1-844-251-2164 for assistance. When you need pest control, you can search, “pest control San Antonio Texas,” and immediately find that Terminix can help. Check out their website for a list of services and locations.
