Animal Control

It’s official: Texas is entering the summer season at full speed, which means that creatures across the state are getting active. The upcoming months are some of the busiest times for local critters of all kinds, from snakes, raccoons and armadillos, to bees and birds. If you live in North Texas or near the Houston area, you’ll probably start to see more and more invaders on your property due to the changing weather.

The question is, why does the summer heat impact animal activity?

First of all, the rain from this spring has helped animal populations to grow, and the incoming warm weather will only add to the critter population in Texas. The moist, warm environment has given wildlife the perfect breeding ground.

Second, the temperatures here in Texas can reach extreme heights, which can then drive animals to seek shelter in new places – including your home. Many will attempt to worm their way into your air-conditioned house to seek shelter from the blazing southern heat.

Furthermore, as summer is a time of long days and shorter nights, that means animals have more brightly-lit time to feed and explore. This can cause them to be more active on your property, and eventually lead to an annoying infestation.

There are things you can do to minimize your risk of an animal infestation, even during the busy summer months. Trim back the shrubbery around your house and make sure trash is sealed away in appropriate dumpsters. Watch for signs of invasion so you can nip problems in the bud immediately.
