Q&A with your local branch manager:

What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?

Common wildlife problems in the Rio Grande Valley include rats, raccoons, bats, and bees. Because of the abundance of water and brush land from the resacas, rats have ample food and habitat to breed and encroach on human habitation. Larger animals, like raccoons, come to feast on this abundance of life around the resacas, and follow the rats right into people’s homes.

Bees can be a real problem because of the enormous amount of fruit being grown. The Rio Grande Valley was one of the first places in America to see Africanized Honey Bees and a large percent of it’s native bee population is now Africanized. This represents a real danger to people who come in contact with these bees. The Rio Grande Valley is also on the bat migratory route and as such sees a high number of bat infestations.

How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?

Cooler weather in the fall typically brings mammals in towards people and their homes, causing a spike in raccoon, possum, and rat entry. The fall is also the time when the majority of migratory bats are passing through the valley and so we see an increase in bat related issues.

Spring and summer months typically bring bees and snakes. There is also an increase in the mammal population from the young being born and this spike can cause rats and raccoons to spread out to new territories.

Any prevention tips for residents in your area?

Keep trees trimmed back from your house. With the amount of moisture in the air and moderate temperatures the Rio Grande Valley is a great place for all kinds of lush plants and trees to grow. This can be a problem as overhanging foliage provides direct access to your roof for rats, raccoons, possums, and squirrels. Once on the roof these animals can make quick work of roofing materials and be inside your attic making a mess in a hurry.

When should homeowners call Trutech?

Homeowners should call Trutech when they suspect animals are in their home or are frequently seen in the surrounding area. Animals can multiply incredibly quickly so getting a handle on them early means less clean up and danger of disease in the long run. Similarly, catching a problem early and taking the proper steps to prevent further issues can save homeowners hundreds of dollars over the long run.

It is also advisable for customers to contact Trutech before they have an acute issue if they do not have any prevention plan in place. Rats are everywhere in the valley, chances are they are going to try and get into your house sooner or later. With the rats come raccoons, possums, diseases, and that unsettling feeling of having something inside your home. A solid prevention plan can stop you from ever having an issue, and give you the peace of mind that Trutech will be there if you do.
