Welcome to Pest Animal North Dallas! We are a wildlife removal company servicing North Dallas, TX. You might think it's cute to have wildlife inside your home, but the animal won't stay cute for long. There are several diseases spread when hear wild critters get inside your property, and whether it's residential or commercial, you'll want to keep things safe. Histoplasmosis, Leptospirosis, and Salmonella are just three diseases easily spread through contact with wild animals, and that's just the humans. Don't even get us started at the problems wildlife can cause to your household pets. And your home ... the damage is often unseen, but that doesn't mean it's not there. As well as urine and droppings, these wild critters can require replacement of attic insulation, and often repair work to walls, wooden beams, electrical wiring, and various other components of your home. The damage can often prove dangerous in itself - chewed electrical cables, for example. These are all problems we'll deal with when we attend your property. We have ten years worth of experience helping us provide a wildlife control solution that is effective, reliable, and also humane. We don't ever use poisons in our work, as we know they are both dangerous and highly ineffective. That's before you even think about how inhumane it is as a wildlife control method. We just use our wealth of knowledge, as well as state of the art technology and equipment, to not only exclude the creature from coming back, but also to seal up the holes too. We'll do a complete job - damage repair and disease control included, and all for a very competitive price. Give us a call today for your free quote.

About Pest Animal North Dallas and Our Services:
Find a rodent in your home or on your property and you will probably want to trap it as soon as possible. Taking care of the rodent earlier rather than later minimizes the amount of damage it can do, saving you time and money in the long run. If you plan on doing this task yourself, you will need to get a few basic supplies to trap a rodent. If you don't want to buy them and don't happen to have them on hand, you can also hire a professional who should already have the following equipment.
Live Cage Traps
If you plan on trapping the rodent alive, then you will want to have a live cage trap. These are the most common types of live traps and the easiest to use. Having a trap like this will save you the trouble of having to fashion a homemade one from household items (that may or may not be effective) or chasing the rodent around with a bucket to trap it under. Remember that live cage traps come in various sizes so you want to get one that is the appropriate size for a rodent. This means that you will want a larger trap to catch a squirrel than a mouse.
For those who plan on killing the rodent, such as a mouse or rat, you will need a lethal trap. Make sure to select a humane option that kills the rodent instantly so it does not suffer. Because of this, you should always buy a lethal trap instead of trying to make one yourself. The best option is the classic snap trap as it is the most likely to kill instantly and limit suffering.
You will also need bait of some sort to attract the rodent to your trap. The exact bait you should use depends on the animal in question. Mice, for example, will be attracted by oats, chocolate, peanut butter, gum drops, marshmallows, cherry pits, beef jerky, and nesting materials. Rats also enjoy peanut butter and gum drops, but can also be attracted by nuts, berries, bacon, and dried fruit. For squirrels, try nuts, cereal grains, peanut butter, apples, sunflower seed, or popcorn. For other rodents, do a bit of research to see what type of bait they like best.
Patience And Knowledge
Other than the equipment mentioned above, you only need a bit of patience and some knowledge to trap a rodent. The knowledge lets you know where to place the trap to increase your chances of effectiveness. You can consult an expert or look online for the best locations of traps.
