Skunks are one of the leading carriers of rabies in Texas. Skunks rarely spray in darkened areas such as completely enclosed live traps that have been covered. The primary control methods for skunks are trapping and exclusion work to structures. Live traps are placed near burrows or pathways. The animal is then relocated to a rural area at least 5 miles away from the trap site. Relocation at this distance will ensure that the animal will not return. There are other various wildlife animal repellants as well to keep skunks from burrowing under buildings or foundations.
We cover openings with metal flashing, concrete blocks, and wire mesh. Wire mesh is attached to the structure then we excavate down and away from the structure and bury it beneath the soil. Construction material we choose for the exclusion work is largely dependent on the situation and the type of structure. Burrows are typically filled with concrete or concrete blocks after the animal has been caught and relocated to prevent future entry by other skunks.

Although there are multiple species of squirrels in Texas, the most common in our area is the fox squirrel. A fairly large squirrel weighing in around 2 – 1/2 pounds it is most active feeding early morning and late afternoon. During spring and summer, squirrels will eat fruit, seeds, insects, buds, and green shoots. Squirrels can cause considerable damage being able to readily chew through wood siding and wood trim. Other common entry points are roof jacks, roof returns, dome vents, soffit vents and around air-conditioning lines. Once inside a structure or attic, they can damage the cable, wires, air-conditioning lines, plumbing lines, and tear up air conditioning ductwork. Initially we will inspect and provide a quote to seal all entry points using metal flashing, hardware cloth and replace trim if necessary and paint to match with paint provided by the customer.
Wildlife Animal Control In San Antonio
Wildlife Animal Control methods are customized to fit each situation. Exclusion of a structure is often necessary and the most effective method. A combination of metal flashing, heavy gauge screen, and poly fiber stainless steel wool are used to block off the variety of openings squirrels use to get into a home or building.
Other wildlife animal control methods for squirrels are humane live trapping and relocation of the animal, installing one-way doors at entry points allowing the animal to leave, and occasionally the use of repellents to help deter or drive the squirrels away. No harmful chemicals or pesticides are used during this process.
