Plano TX Wildlife Information

Texas Wildlife Commission: 512-389-8092

Texas Game WardenIf you have any questions about the wildlife of Plano, you can contact the Texas Wildlife Commission, sometimes called the Texas Fish & Wildlife Agency. Texas game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and Plano wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. If you have a problem with nuisance wildlife in Plano like squirrels, snakes, bats, or raccoons, the state agency is very unlikely to help. You need to hire a private company (here are their prices) such as Red Rover Rodent Removal at 972-372-9372.

I also have listed several sources for free Plano wildlife help. One example, if you've found an injured animal or lost baby bird or other baby animal is the Plano Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 214-606-1987 Or just read below for more info about the wild animals of Plano.

Texas has long been the iconic state associated with cowboys and wild-west shoot outs. It is a hot, dry place covered in a variety of brush and spindly trees; though it does have a significant amount of large hardwood trees like oak. Animals in Texas need to be able to survive the heat, and most of them have adapted nicely to that extreme.

The nice thing about Texas is the fact that the state allows homeowners to trap pest animals at any time without a license. Pelts or animals can only be kept, however, if they were taken during the designated trapping season. All other creatures caught must be turned over to the local authorities.

As with most of the states in the country, Texas homeowners find themselves tasked with preventing squirrels, moles, raccoons, skunks, and rats from entering their homes and attached property. Armadillos and snakes are also common problem animals. The hotter and drier the weather in Texas, the more a problem the ant and insect population becomes, driving armadillos into yards to hunt for grubs within lush lawns. Snakes also will be common yard visitors in this state, especially if the yard has a water source like a pond or a pool. All reptiles are drawn to water, and having a pool in a dry place like Texas will mean seeing snakes.

Texas is too large, however, to have the same climate throughout, and the southern part of the state is home to a number of endangered animal species like the ocelot, jaguarondi, brown pelican, whooping crane, and bald eagle. These creatures thrive in the tall grasses of that part of the state and the scrub forests that grow along the Rio Grande River.

Large predators do well in Texas because of the low-growing vegetation. Mountain lions are currently the largest predator in the wild, but coyotes have been known to run in packs across the plains. Not surprisingly, other cat-like predators are also present like the ocelot, jaguarondi, and the bobcat. Out in the open, coyotes have the upper hand, hunting for various lizards and reptiles the sun themselves on rocks. Of the predators, coyotes are often the only species that becomes chronically bothersome to people. For the most part, mountain lions and other cat species are reclusive.

Plano Wildlife Tip
Opossum repellent moth balls - do they work?
Just take a few minutes of your time to have a quick look on the internet and see the kinds of things that you can use to deter opossums. Things like urine of predators such as the coyote, noise blasters, moth balls, camphor blocks, and even radios. It's amazing, despite how many people saying that they have had oodles of success with these repelling methods, hundreds and thousands of people are still resorting to calling a local wildlife control expert to effectively deal with the situation. These methods may prove to be cheaper, but in reality, they don't always work.

Think of it this way - lights used to work for repelling opossums, simply because they are usually nocturnal. However, if they were completely nocturnal, we as humans would never see them during the day, and we do! We see them scavenging for food and rooting through garbage cans, running through the yard, and even getting into scraps with household pets. If it really was the case that these creatures would be completely repelled by lights, and/or noise, (in the cases of noise blasters) we would simply never see them - and we do!

There are tons of methods out there that have been said to repel creatures like squirrels, rats, spiders, opossums, raccoons and more, but in reality, if any of them ACTUALLY worked, and worked for the duration that we needed them to, the wildlife control people would be extinct and they are very much still up and running, with demands higher than ever before!
Plano, TX Wildlife News Clip:
Wildlife - Controversy erupts over Plano squirrel, rat, and rodent exterminating

Mr. The snake control expert said he's not against trapping and respects the rights of private landowners, but he is frustrated with the few "Elmer Fudd types" who figure trapping is a personal right to create a game farm. Although several species of wildlife roam Plano, only a few, such as raccoons and squirrels and rats are considered pest wildlife.

"No one has the right to use our created and controlled areas (like the Dundas Valley) to funnel and shoot these docile creatures (rat and mouse) as they return from the valleys to their own areas," he said. Texas has many reptiles, and it's important to be able to identify Plano snake species and mammals.

Mr. The snake control expert has even found one illegal squirrel, rat, and rodent stand on the property he maintains but someone has since removed it. Mr. The snake control expert began counting the number of tree stands after one neighbour complained of hearing gunshots late at night. He noticed mowed trails and saw intricately camouflaged blinds set up along where squirrel, rat, and rodent paths converged. Remember to treat the wild animals of Plano, Texas, with respect and care.

He became aware that food was set out under tree stands allowing exterminators to bring their quarry within metres of being shot. Taking action, Mr. The snake control expert invited a reporter from the Ancaster News to tour the property he caretakes last week. While on the property three gunshots were heard. Texas has an abundance of wildlife, and Plano is no exception.
