Rodents could already be in your home. They can sometimes be hard to detect if they don’t show their faces. They also build large networks inside your home before you even realize it. Luckily, there’s an adorable, friendly solution to your problem – the rat terrier.
When you look at your home, you see your lawn, your siding, and your windows and doors. Animals see those things too – and more. They know how warm and safe your home is and that you supply lots of comfort and food. They know how to sneak in and out of small passageways and have the skills to infiltrate places that can be invisible to homeowners.

Texas residents know that our state is no stranger to bats. Millions of bats make their home around Texas and the southwest U.S. Unfortunately, every so often you end up sharing your own home with a bat when they make their way onto your property.
