Rodent Awareness Month!

Santa’s reindeer aren’t the only creatures landing on your roof to look for a way inside this winter! This is rodent season! Rats, mice, squirrels, raccoons, and opossums and more are all looking for a warm place to nest as these Texas nights begin to cool down. Unlike Santa, the only gifts these rodents are bringing inside are hundreds, often even thousands, of dollars in DAMAGES! Rodents can always find a way inside eventually because of their ability to chew or scratch their way through certain building materials. Once they are present they can harm the structure of your home, the insulation in your attic and walls, disturb electrical wiring, and lets not forget the smell the leave behind after doing their business! We can help you protect your home from these misfortunes. You can get a rodent inspection completely free! We offer preventative rodent exclusion services as well as a bait box program and live trappings. Call us today to set up your appointment so you don’t have unwanted visitors this season.

Beware of Freezing Damage!

When the temperatures drop below freezing you need to consider your pipes. Not covering your exterior faucets can lead to busted or cracked pipes causing leaks and damages to your home. Get your faucets protected now before those super cold nights come sneaking up on us! We’re here to help, call the office if you would like us to install faucet covers during your next pest control service. Only $10 per cover.

Holiday Charity Fundraiser!

The SAFE Alliance is a merger of Austin Children’s Shelter and SafePlace, both long-standing and respected human service agencies in Austin serving the survivors of child abuse, sexual assault and exploitation, and domestic violence.

BBF Services has chosen the SAFE Alliance as our charity of choice for this year’s holiday fundraiser! This year is especially hard for those suffering from abuse or neglect at home. The pandemic quarantine has forced many people to make the decision between staying unsafe at home or unsafe on the streets. Last year SAFE served over 6500 youth and adults, they provided over 100,000 beds, and answered the calls for help for 20,000 victims. While Texas leads the nation in child abuse fatalities, with 202 children in FY2015/16, funding for child protection in Texas is woefully inadequate. That is why we are asking for your help. IF you find yourself fortunate in these times please consider donating in whatever amount possible to further assist families all over our community break the cycle of violence and be able to provide for their families even just a little bit this holiday season.

There are two ways to donate:
