TERMITES

Termites. It’s incredible to witness the damage such a small creature can inflict. With an amenable climate for these pests, Texas is highly prone to termites and the infestations that can come with them. They can eat your home from the inside out, causing problems that can start as cosmetic and wind up as structural. Three species inhabit Texas, winged termites, subterranean termites, and dry termites being the most prolific. The best way to know if your home is safe is to get a professional inspection. We recommend having your home inspected by a professional once a year. We also offer pre-construction treatments that help ward off termites from day one. 855Bugs has been helping people in the Waco and Temple area manage termites for over 10 years! Schedule a FREE Inspection, we’d be happy to help ensure termites never threaten your home or livelihood.

RODENTS

Mice, rats, and other rodents are extremely resourceful and persistent creatures. Did you know a mouse can squeeze through an opening as small as ½ inch? And, don’t think you’re safe because that hole is only ¼ inch. They can easily chew through many surfaces to make that hole large enough to sneak through. Rats are excellent swimmers. While it certainly doesn’t happen often, rats can swim through sewer lines and wind up in your toilet bowl.

WILDLIFE CONTROL IN WACO, TEMPLE, BELTON, AND SURROUNDING AREAS

855Bugs is your leading expert in wildlife pest control and removal.

Racoons, skunks, armadillos, foxes, squirrels, moles, opossums, oh my! If you live in Texas, you are certainly aware of all the wildlife The Lone Star State has to offer. Though some of these animals may seem cute, they can certainly wreak havoc on your home and your property. Some of these critters can even find their way into the walls or attic of your home and sometimes even into your living spaces!

When Fall rolls around, and the temperatures start to cool, we see an increase in animal removal calls. In colder months, these critters want warmth, food, and hydration, much like us. So, they begin looking for warm places to stay, as well as food and water sources. But don’t think they are only winter guests. If these critters can gain access to your home, they will do so anytime of year.

Now, here is the kicker. These kinds of wildlife pack a punch with the dangers they pose to both your home and well-being. Wires chewed? Fire risk. Drywall munched? Hello, property damage. Strange noises in the walls and attic? It’s a critter party. Armadillos burrowing under foundation and driveways? Structural damage. Moles? Total lawn chaos. Say goodbye to that coveted “yard of the month” title. And once they gain entry into your home, they create entry points for other rodents and pests to join them.

Your home should not be a safe zone for these guys. (​No…not even that storage shed in the backyard.) At the first sign of wildlife taking up residence in or around your home, it’s crucial that you enlist the help of wildlife control experts asap! Wildlife and pest control is not a DIY project to take on yourself. Attempting to trap or capture these critters introduces new dangers like bites from rabies-infected racoons and skunks. Leave it to the professionals!

With the proper tools and extensive, ongoing training, 855Bugs is more than equipped to handle your wild animal removal. We’ll start with a free and thorough inspection to determine the extent of your problem and pinpoint any entry points. From there, we’ll make a plan to seal up any potential entry points and remove the wildlife that has already found a way into your home. We can even get rid of “dead smells” from wildlife that have died within your walls or attic. From wildlife exclusion to live trapping, 855Bugs is here to help!

If you’ve landed on this page, chances are some of these critters are already cramping your style, and you are looking for a top notch wildlife removal professional. Animal removal can be a tricky process, but the professionals at 855Bugs are happy to come to the rescue! Schedule a free inspection today!
