Protect Your Home and Family Against Unwanted House Guests

Protect your Home from Critters

Unwanted guests taking permanent residence in your home?

Wildlife commonly seeks warmth and shelter inside garages, attics, decks, and even your home walls.

Animal removal and control involves trapping and removing animals rather than extermination in most cases, often requiring multiple visits and may include preventative measures like patching weak points and entryways. It is common for companies to combine extermination and removal methods, especially in the case of rodents.

Learning about animal removal and control is essential as a new or long-time homeowner, so you are prepared when pests become non-paying tenants, even if you haven’t seen any misplaced animals thus far.

Protect Your Home and Family

Mice are notorious for making your home their home, but they are not the only culprits. Opossums, raccoons, squirrels, and birds are known to nest inside homes, resulting in significant property damage and exposing you and your loved ones to potential health risks.

Taking matters into your own hands may seem like a quick fix to your pest problem. But attempting to remove wildlife from your property on your own is not advised.

The CDC warns against going near wild animals as they are unpredictable and, if provoked, may react aggressively. As potential disease carriers, wildlife poses a health risk, even if seemingly healthy. Sickness can be transferred via a scratch or bite and through saliva, feces, and urine.

The best approach is to keep away and contact professionals immediately.

What Costs are Associated with Animal Removal?

Many components are taken into consideration when it comes to the cost of animal removal services. Costs can vary greatly and don’t include home repairs and minimal preventative measures.

At Critter Stop, pricing is based on individual circumstances, as every home and pest problem is unique. Our experts thoroughly review your property and provide a detailed list of services needed and costs. We offer a permanent solution to your infestation problems, not a quick fix, and if through faulty work of our own or a newly created entrance by a rodent, rest assured you are 100% covered.

Factors when determining pricing include but are not limited to: 

  • Features on the home
  • Square footage of the home
  • Severity of infestation
  • Landscaping 

4 Ways Critter Stop Beats the Competition

With so many animal removal companies, it may be hard to know whom to trust. Our technicians at Critter Stop evaluate the home inside and out to provide a comprehensive solution, following up throughout the entire process to avoid any recurring problem. 

What to expect from our animal removal service:

1. Free In-Home Inspection

A free in-home inspection allows Critter Stop to fully gauge the infestation, damages, and repairs needed. After assessing the property and landscape, we provide a custom solution to your infestation problem.

2. Preventative Solutions

We take several preventative measures to provide permanent solutions to your infestation problem.

  • Seal your home: Sealing all potential and active entrances a in and around your home is our top priority. Preventing animals from re-entering the premises and allowing us to trap and remove animals remaining. 
  • Traps: During this process, our technicians will check in on your home several times, checking traps and reviewing any animal activity. Once the traps are cleared and reset, all sealed points are re-evaluated to make sure critters have not re-chewed holes or found new ways to gain entry.
  • Restore and Sanitize: The Pest is Gone! Here’s where most companies pack up shop, leaving you with a headache of repairs and unsure of what steps to take next. At Critter Stop, we take care of all that for you, from restoring affected areas, replacing chewed wires, damaged insulation, sourcing replacement drywall or wood, and fogging the area to disinfect and remove animal pheromones that can attract new pests. 

3. Humane Animal Removal

Except for smaller rodents like mice or rats, animals are removed via a one-way door, which provides an easy escape with no return access. If an animal gets caught in a live trap, Critter Stop provides relocation to protected land in Rowlett, Texas. Here we have set up feeders and water sources to help animals adapt to the new land. 

Rats and mice are the only animals where lethal methods of trapping are necessary due to their size.

4. 100% Lifetime Guarantee

Our work is 100% guaranteed! Once we have eradicated the pests, sealed off all possible entry points, inspected for weak areas, and restored any affected areas, your home is backed by our lifetime guarantee.

Be Prepared Before Disaster Strikes

Wild animals quickly become a nuisance when they infiltrate your home. Whether its birds in the attic, opossums in your crawlspace, or another critter taking up residency in your home, wildlife causes damage to your property and puts your family in danger
