Wildlife Problems in Kenner, LA

Bordered by a lake to the north and a river to the south, Kenner, LA, has plenty of resources to attract wildlife pests. Along with the area's abundance of water, its historical buildings have numerous gaps and cracks that allow easy entry. As a result, homes and yards in this New Orleans suburb are a magnet for animals.

Squirrels on the Lawn

Gray squirrels, locally known as cat squirrels, are a nuisance on Louisiana properties. These pests will steal a variety of items from gardens, including seeds, bulbs, buds, and fruit. A gray squirrel likes to bury its food in several places around the lawn and may move into a nearby attic to raise its young.

Bats and Rabies

Kenner residents frequently find bat colonies in attics or backyard trees, culverts, and wells. When the animals live close to people, they create health concerns. Bats are one of Louisiana's main carriers of rabies, a life-threatening illness that can affect humans and pets. Since bites and scratches may transmit this virus, it's vital to avoid any contact with the pests.

Feeding Raccoons

Raccoons thrive in Kenner, where food is plentiful. Homeowners who leave pet food outdoors at night or fail to secure trashcan lids unwittingly provide these pests with regular meals. Well-fed raccoon populations grow quickly, increasing damage to yards and raising the risk for diseases like distemper and rabies.

More Louisiana Wildlife

Kenner's low elevation often leads to water and rodent problems in yards. Flooding drives rats and mice into houses, where they cause issues for residents. Indoors, a rat or mouse infestation can result in tainted pantry goods, chewed wires, and torn insulation.

This company has been great. The technician Kensi was very through and checked everywhere to make sure all access points were found. After a skunk was found in the trap on a Saturday morning they came to pick it up very quickly.

So when I went to have my insulation replaced I figured out that I had a critter problem that was beyond anything I was aware of. Not wanting to waste time I decided to call a professional and these guys were really good from day one. From the gentleman who gave the estimate to both of the guys that came out and did the work there was great communication and they were very effective at what they did. One little thing got missed and all it took was one text message and somebody was out the next day to take care of it. They always text me when they're on their way or going to be at the house and they let me know what they found along with photographs. My first thought when they gave me the quote was wow that was a lot of money and I didn't want to spend that much and now that I've had them do the service I feel like it's worth every penny and it's actually pretty damn reasonable considering the number of times that they come out and all the things that they do take care of.

I had an issue with squirrels getting into a small section of roofing without access from the attic or inside of the home. Critter control was a huge help in solving the issue, especially thanks to Brandon and Nate. Ended up catching 3 squirrels living in the roof plus they seal the entrance point after all is said and done. I would absolutely recommend critter control, Brandon and Nate did a stellar job.

Dominick was very friendly and he consistently put on his shoe covers each time he entered the house. He looked over every inch of the storage room where we thought the animal was and did a walk around the yard to see if there was evidence of entry. He was very thorough. He did not find any animal at that time. He said he would leave a trap and review the outside area of the house over the next week. It was the next day that the smell in our storage room indicated that the animal had died. We followed the small and discovered a dead bird in an open storage bin. I would highly recommend Dominick for 'Critter Control'. Thank you, Valerie

your representative (Dominic) was very friendly and quickly removed the dying raccoon from our outdoor window-well. He also shared information with us regarding raccoons on their behavior, what they liked/disliked, and provided information on how to disinfect the area the raccoon had been trapped in for a couple of days. I'd rate him 9 stars if I could. -pja
