WILDLIFE REMOVAL SERVICES
Nuisance wildlife and animal removal is a unique service that requires specific skills, equipment and knowledge
Wild animals cause regular issues throughout the Houston metropolitan area. The team at Environmental Coalition Incorporated has conducted successful wildlife control both in and around commercial facilities. Some of these four-legged animals include:
- Opossums: Typically nocturnal, the opossum is primarily a woodland animal and prefers to live away from humans. In some cases though, opossums will find their way into human territory or are simply born there and never leave. We have found opossums living in and around office structures in perhaps the rarest of places: downtown Houston.
- Raccoons: Like the opossum, raccoons are nocturnal, though they will happily live near and around humans. Raccoons eat birds, eggs, frogs, fruit, and snakes – but it is not uncommon for them to develop a taste for human leftovers or trash-can-take-out. Raccoons may seem like they have a playful disposition, but don’t let that sly face fool you.
- Skunks: This smelly, cat-like creature is perhaps the one pest that can linger in an environment long after it has been removed. Skunks will burrow under a lawn or the immediate perimeter of a property and dig small cone-shaped holes on the grounds surrounding the facility, looking for grubs and insects to consume.
- Armadillos: Armadillos can cause serious property damage. Their long claws are used to dig holes in search of food and to help create shelter. Some of these holes can be as wide as 20+ feet and as deep as 8+ feet. Armadillos pose some of the biggest challenges for wildlife pest control companies.
As with all wild animals, there is a reason why they are in your commercial space. Removing waste and food debris from a premise on a regular basis is critical in conducting your own critter control.
Over the years, we have received requests to address other types of wildlife management issues as well. Here is a short list of wild animals that we do not address:
