Let’s Talk Armadillo’s

They are nocturnal mostly, living underground in burrows they dig themselves with their clawed front feet. Their preferred food is insects, specializing in earthworms and grubs found always under your nicely manicured laws.

They can live in most of the southern united states, though they are non-native to the US, they came here by natural migration, meaning that on their own they decided to travel north and make their homes in north America far from their usual homes in south America. This is not an unusual phenomenon, the habits of Southern North America closely mirror the former habitats of the armadillo’s original home in South America.

 

Armadillo’s are well suited for digging up lawns in search of their favorite foods. Their feet have four or five large talon-like claws on each of them and make short work of grasses, roots, and small trees allowing the animal to find and eat its buggy feast. Those same claws are often put to use digging their homes, burrows, for the armadillo. Typically only one armadillo lives in each burrow, the only exception are babies. They are born live and the mother will watch over and train them in the ways of the armadillo for a month or so and then the babies venture out on their own to dig their own burrows and find their own insects to eat.

 

How to know if you have an armadillo: Watch for holes in your yard. If one day you go to bed with no holes but wake the next morning to a lawn riddled with digs and even a burrow or two, you are fairly certain to have an armadillo.

 

Armadillo trapping is fairly simple for the trained expert, like the team at Centurian Wildlife Services. Our managers are trained to spot the signs of armadillo’s, to find their burrows, and even to know if you have more than one causing trouble at your property. Call us today for a free inspection and estimate on live trapping and removal of any armadillo on your property.

Dead Animal Removal

Unfortunately dead animals happen. And the worst ones are the dead animals in your home, in the attic or in the walls.

You will usually find these dead animals because of their smell. You will smell the decay in your home and know without a doubt that you have a dead animal.

Before you start any work on your own call Centurian Wildlife Services. Let one of our trained teammates come out to take a look at what you’re working with. It is very likely that he will be able to locate the animal without making a mess of your walls and then offer solutions for removing the dead animal and sanitizing your home to remove the bacteria left by the dead animal.

 

It is best to let a trained professional like Centurian Wildlife do the dead animal removal. The decaying flesh of the dead animal does carry disease and bacteria that is harmful to humans and domestic pets. Our teammates have the proper equipment, including respirators, and strong stomachs to manage the stench of the decay. Plus, we have biological santitizers that aren’t available to the average consumer to be very sure all the disease and bacteria left by the dead animal both on the surfaces of your home and in the air.

 

It is always better to be safe than sorry and dead wild animals can be dangerous to your health. Call Centurian Wildlife as soon as you suspect you have a dead wild animal in your home.

San Antonio Rat Removal

My name is David, and I work in Orlando, but I’ve spent years training dozens of wildlife pros, and getting to know hundreds of them throughout the country. If you need a rat removal company in San Antonio, TX, I recommend Centurian Wildlife. I believe that this company knows what I know about rat control, so give them a call at 210-579-4727.

Bexar County has a documented rodent problem, which is not uncommon in many parts of Texas. If you need to get rid of rats in the attic or a building in San Antonio, you don’t want to hire a pest control company or exterminator, you want a wildlife control specialist to do the rodent removal work correctly. Call Centurian Wildlife at 210-579-4727, and describe your rat or mouse issue, and he will be able to give you a quote and schedule a same-day or next day inspection to solve the problem.

 Centurian Wildlife – 210-579-4727

I asked Centurian Wildlife to describe their service range, and they said, “Trutech Inc. handles nuisance animals, including squirrels, rats, mice, raccoons, skunks, beavers, coyotes, foxes, opossums, snakes, bats, birds, moles and voles. The company also addresses all stinging insect problems, including bees, wasps, hornets, and yellow jackets. Trutech Inc. carries workers’ compensation and liability insurance. We service San Antonio and surrounding towns, such as San Marcos, New Braunfels, Universal City, Windcrest, Kirby, Hollywood Park, Leon Valley, Schertz, Cibolo, and more.” As a licensed and insured wildlife company in Texas, Centurian Wildlife is fully qualified to handle rodent removal problems, far more effectively than most San Antonio pest control companies, and never with the use of poison. To find out about the specific terms, and to schedule and appointment, just call 210-579-4727.

Bexar County, San Antonio Rat Control Situation: In mid July of 2015, a friend brought me a 4 week old baby girl rat that she found by the garbage. I live in San Antonio TX. I kept and raised her, she was my little girl and she was a sweetheart. I fell very much in love with her, but not until after I released her to the outside world. In December I started taking her outside for a couple hours each day until she got to the point she wanted to sleep in the tree. She was outside for about four months until April 1st, when she didn’t come home. Everyday for those four months she came to me when I called her name, until that morning she didn’t show up to get her breakfast. My husband called her for lunch that day, but she never came and I tried again at dinner time, but no show. We tried to find her for two weeks after that, but she was no where to be found. I wish I would have never let her outside and kept her as a pet. I loved her very much and she loved me, we would play together for a couple hours everyday, she was different from the other squirrels. I would like to find another baby squirrel if I could. I see that you trap them and relocate them, do you ever come across any that are special needs and if so what do you do with them? Or do you know who I could contact to see about getting one for a pet? I feed the rats in my back yard everyday and my husband now has a girl squirrel that comes to him for peanuts, she is very cute. I could set and watch them all day. Can you help me? Thanks, Candace

Home Repairs and Animal Proofing the Home

Attic Bio-Treatment Cleaning

Insulation Removal and Restoration

Because Every home is Just a little bit different, and every Animal infestation is just a little bit different we provide completely free Home Inspections and Evaluations. We would rather give you an accurate Honest Quote then guess over the phone and surprise you with an unexpected surprise cost.
The Centurian Wildlife Signature 3 Step Process:
Step 1. Identify Issue & Set appropriate Traps:
Every Animal Removal and Wildlife Control situation is different, this is why we provide free estimates and inspections. Our Trapping techniques vary for each type of animal we encounter. Raccoon Trapping involves live traps set around the perimeter of the home. Rodent, rats, and mice trapping involves snap traps, glue traps, and even live traps set in the attic and under the home if needed. Bat Removal involves netting and valving the animals out of the structure and not allowing them to return. The situations range in difficulty as well, this is why our Wildlife Specialists are there to help you and solve your needs and problems.
Step 2. Identify Access Points and close them off:
Once you know that you have animals in your home the only way to keep them from coming back is to excluded them. This is done by closing off any access points around your home where the animal may have been gaining access. Once the animals are captured and relocated, we will identify all the possible ways that the animal was able to get into the home. We will close off these access points using all metal based products and other pest control products ensuring that no future animal will ever try to come back; this is called an Exclusion. All of our Trapping and Handy Man work done to ensure the protection of your home comes with our 1-5 year renewable warranty, if an animal ever comes back we will trap and exclude completely free!
Step 3. Clean up the mess left behind:
Nuisance wildlife in your attic can create problems many homeowners never think of. Bacteria, feces and insects left behind from the Nuisance animal. Bat bugs, mites, ticks and fleas are just some of the ectoparasites you need to be concerned about. Mice in the attic, bats in the attic or various other visitors are notorious for bringing these pests in. And what about the droppings left behind in your attic? Urine, poop, and other bacteria is now in the insulation. Is this something you want hanging above your head at night when you sleep?

Rodents in the Plumbing

Being a part of your city sewer there is the possibility that rodents will enter your home through the pipes. They come up through the toilet, regardless if you have water in the bowl or not.

Septic systems are safe, your plumbing pipes connect only to your septic tank, not to the greater plumbing system.

Most pipes going to your toilets don’t have a continuous stream of water in them, they are dry aside from the time you are flushing so only short bursts of water come through. Even if those pipes do have continuous water rats can hold their breath for up to three minutes, much longer than most humans, and they can swim up the water pipes into your home.

Centurian Wildlife Services can help you solve your rodent using the plumbing pipes by performing what we call a smoke test. A team of two trained service members will come to your home or property and together they will push harmless “smoke”, just colored gas, through your plumbing, if you have an access point or hole being used by rodents to gain access to your home via the pipes smoke will come through that hole into your home. If you don’t the gas will dissipate in the pipes.

Upon finding the hole in the pipes being used by the rodents to enter your home Centurian can seal your plumbing preventing any more rodent entry. We can also seal your entire home so that rodents cannot find another way inside using small openings they find outside.

If you continue to have a problem with rodents in your home even though you’ve had other companies come out and try to solve the problem give Centurian Wildlife Services a call, let us do a “smoke test” to see if they animals are using your plumbing, and then help you solve the problem.

Noises at Night?

Are noises in the Attic keeping you up at night?

If you have a problem with wild and nuisance animals on your property or in your home and they are keeping you up at night you need to invest in the safest, most humane way of solving the problem.

Centurian Wildlife Services offers professional wildlife trapping and removal. The type of trap, type of bait needed, and duration of trapping session will all be dependent on the type of wildlife you have causing a problem. A professional team member of Centurian Wildlife will first need to do a free inspection of your home or property to determine the type of animal you have. Following that he can begin trapping immediately if you’d like. Once trapped the animal will be removed from your home and relocated to another location where he/she will no longer cause trouble for humans and homes.

Once the animal has been removed our team will seal your home or property preventing the usage of all access points previously used or created by the wildlife so that no others can re-enter your home. Following full sealing then our sanitation crew will come in an perform an anti-microbial airborne treatment to remove all germs, diseases, and bacteria from the surfaces and the air.

After your Wildlife Removal Project is complete you will be issued a Home Wildlife Control Certificate detailing the work done and your warranty protecting you from any future infestation.

They are known as one of the most destructive, and smart, animals in Florida. Raccoon, because of their intelligence, easily adapt to all situations and are well-suited to the outdoor urban lifestyle of the Florida cities. They will rifle through your garbage for a meal, eat your dog or cat food, take food from the bird feeders, and even make a way to enter your home to access your cabinets for the human food. If you’ve seen a raccoon in or around your property it should be removed immediately, if left it will cause damage to your home or property.

The urine and feces of raccoons is riddled with bacteria and they can cause several health problems for both humans and domestic pets. The mess left by raccoons should be removed immediately by a professional. Centurian Wildlife offers professional cleaning and sanitation for the removal of the urine and feces left behind by raccoons. We also offer full service exclusion work that will seal your home against all other raccoons from re-entry.

Damage done by raccoons can be expensive and can include chewing holes to gain entry, breaking soffits, destroying fascia, chewing on wiring, shredding insulation, and of course leaving behind urine and feces. Centurian Wildlife will set live traps to catch the raccoons and remove them to a location where they will no longer be a nuisance to humans.

If you think you have signs of raccoons in the attic call Centurian Wildlife for a free assessment, humane trapping and removal of the offending raccoon, closure of the holes the raccoon made, and thorough cleaning of the attic where the raccoon left behind contaminated feces and urine.
