What Are the Major Wildlife Removal Concerns in Hattiesburg, MS?
Located in Mississippi’s Pine Belt region, Hattiesburg has mild winters that support year-round wildlife activity. This city of 46,000 human residents is also home to plenty of native wildlife such as raccoons, squirrels, and skunks that become pests when they get too close to homes and businesses.
These clever animals are found throughout Mississippi and are well-known for tipping over garbage cans in search of food. While it’s tempting to want to chase nuisance raccoons away from your property, the animals can transmit rabies to humans, pets, and other wildlife, so it’s always best to steer clear of them. Raccoons in the Hattiesburg area have also been known to carry distemper, which can spread to pets; therefore, please leave raccoon removal to a professional wildlife specialist.
Inspection: We will take note of disturbed trash cans and pet food. Inside your home, we will inspect your attics and any chimneys for denning raccoons.
Removal: Once we’ve found the nuisance on your property, we will safely capture and remove the raccoons with a live trap.
Repairs: Raccoons can leave quite a mess inside and outside a home. We will seal up any points of entry onto your property and into your home to ensure all raccoons and other nuisance wildlife stay out. We will also clean up all feces and disinfect affected areas.
Rat and Mice Pest Control
All cities, big and small, have rodent problems, and Hattiesburg is no exception. Mice and rats are drawn to food and water sources, and if your home is an easy source of both, rodents will most likely pay your property a visit and start calling it home. If you notice rodents in and around your home or business, please call Critter Control as soon as possible. We will take care of your problem quickly and efficiently.
Inspection: Our specialist will note any rodent urine and feces and inspect your property for gnaw marks. We will also listen to your walls for scurrying noises.
Removal: The best way to remove rodents is to set up live traps. Our specialist will assess your situation and set up traps around your property to capture the rodents. Please be aware the removal process can take several days.
Repairs: Once all rodents are captured, we will seal up all points of entry. This is one of the most important steps we can take to ensure rodents stay away. In addition, we will clean up all feces and urine and disinfect your property.
Residents of Hattiesburg see their fair share of squirrels roaming around parks and backyards. These animals can be fun to observe; however, if there are one too many in your yard or if they find a way inside your home, they can become quite a nuisance. In addition to gnawing on wires and soiling attics with urine and feces, a squirrel may bring fleas and ticks indoors.
Inspection: We will look for signs such as chewing on, in, or around your home, small openings leading to the attic or the crawl space, droppings, and debris like nuts or nesting material.
Removal: After inspection, we will determine the most effective and humane way to remove the squirrel(s) from your property. The most common methods used are live trapping, one-way doors, deterrent, and direct capture.
Repairs: Sealing all entry points to prevent future entry after squirrel removal will be the best course of action. In addition, our specialist may recommend a maintenance service. Like other rodents, squirrels have front teeth that continuously grow, which means they can chew a new way back into your home.
The state of Mississippi is home to 15 bat species. In Hattiesburg, residents may find one or more bats roosting in the attic that most likely made their way inside through loose shingles, torn window screens, or broken vents. If you find bats inside your property, please do not try to remove them yourself. Bats can carry and transmit rabies to humans and pets.
Inspection: Our specialist will search for signs such as rub marks, guano, a strong scent of ammonia, and small openings.
Removal: The most effective and humane way to remove bats is by utilizing a bat valve along with a full home exclusion. A bat valve allows for bats to exit your home but not reenter. Since each bat removal is unique, our specialist will use or create a bat valve specifically for your home.
Repairs: Bat guano can spread histoplasmosis to people; therefore, please leave the clean-up to our specialist with the proper safety equipment. Our specialist will also seal up all points of entry to ensure bats do not reenter your home.
Hattiesburg residents shouldn’t be surprised if and when they encounter a skunk roaming your Hattiesburg property at night. Both spotted and striped skunks live throughout the state of Mississippi. These native animals can become pests when they den under porches and decks, causing problems for homeowners.
Inspection: In addition to noting the foul scent skunks are well-known for emitting, our specialist will examine your yard for signs of digging. Skunks often enter yards in search of new food sources or to find suitable dens.
Removal: Live trapping is the safest and most efficient way to remove nuisance skunks from your property. Never try to remove a skunk yourself, as these animals will shoot their spray in defense when threatened.
Repairs: Our specialist will assist with eliminating the skunk’s odor and repair any property damage. In addition to repairing the soiled property, we also repair damaged access points, including foundation vent screens. We may also recommend cleaning up areas of the property, like woodpiles and food sources, to help keep the skunks away and prevent future skunk control problems
Beavers cause unique problems in Hattiesburg. They settle wherever they can find bodies of water and build large dams. These pests disrupt the natural flow of streams and rivers, which leads to flooding. Mississippi homes located near beaver dams often see serious damage.
Predators in Hattiesburg
Coyotes are a problem across Mississippi. These pests venture into backyards to raid trash cans and hunt for rodents. They will eat any pet food left outdoors. A hungry coyote will even attack a cat or small dog if other prey is scarce.
