Here in Dallas, with its thriving urban and suburban areas, frequent encounters with nuisance wildlife happen. Whether you live in the heart of the city or the surrounding neighborhoods, dealing with wildlife intruders can be a common challenge. 

Keeping wildlife out of your yard and off your property can be challenging. Read on to learn more about how professional Dallas wildlife control from Dynasty Pest Control can help keep destructive and potentially dangerous wildlife away from your home and family.

Common Wildlife Intruders: Identifying The Culprits

Understanding the types of wildlife that often invade homes and properties in Dallas is the first step in effective wildlife control. Some of the most common wildlife species in Dallas include raccoons, which are agile, highly adaptable pests. They are often attracted to garbage bins and can find their way into attics, chimneys, or under decks and porches. Squirrels are agile climbers known to chew through materials to access your home. They often take up residence in attics and wall voids. Opossums are marsupials and are opportunistic feeders. They can rummage through trash cans and nest under your house or crawl spaces.

Contact us immediately if you see any of these animals around your Dallas home. We can inspect your property for signs of wildlife and confirm the identity of the species threatening your home. 

Assessing Wildlife Damage: The Impact Of Nuisance Animals On A Home

When you think of scary pests in Texas, you probably think of scorpions, wasps, and snakes. But wildlife in Dallas can have a significant impact on your home as well. Wild animals can damage your property by gnawing on wires, insulation, or structural components. Raccoons, squirrels, and other rodents are notorious for this.

Additionally, many wildlife species carry diseases or parasites that they can transmit to humans or pets. Much like rodents such as rats and mice, wildlife can bring in smaller pests like fleas. Fleas can cause a lot of issues for both you and any furry family members you have, which is why it’s best to keep wildlife from hanging around to begin with.

Wildlife-Proofing Your Property: Effective Prevention Methods

Preventing wildlife intrusions is often more effective and humane than dealing with the aftermath. Here are some wildlife prevention tips you can use to keep these pests out of your yard:

  • Use wildlife-proof trash cans to deter them from rummaging through your garbage.
  • Identify and seal potential entry points to your home, such as gaps in roofs, soffits, or vents. 
  • Install fencing or other protective measures to keep wildlife away from your garden.
  • Removing potential food sources, like pet food left outside, can discourage wildlife from visiting your property.
  • Trim trees and shrubs away from your home to reduce access routes for animals like squirrels and raccoons.
