Q&A with Local Franchisee James Rowzee

Can you please describe the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face
in your area?

The most common wildlife issue within Central Mississippi is the invasion of nusaince wildlife into residential and commercial spaces. Many animals such as squirrels, raccoons and oppossums also enjoy the comforts of homes and businesses and can be very effective at exploiting the weaker areas of structures.

How do the seasons affect nuisance wildlife activity in your area?
Although nuisance wildlife can be an issue year-round, specific times of the year can be the most troublesome.
Cold weather means wildlife seeking warm refuge, mainly your home. Spring brings the issue of wildlife mothers searching for secure areas to bear their young, such as a warm, dry attic.

What are some common signs of nuisance wildlife activity?
In order to ensure their safety and health, homeowners should be aware of nuisance wildlife activity in their homes. Always be wary of strange or unexplained noises in the attic, walls or under the floors. Homeowners should also make regular inspections of their homes. Always be suspicious of gaps or openings along the roof or soffit. Be wary of strange smells or markings.

Any prevention or exclusion tips for local residents in your area?
Property owners can take several preventative steps to help safeguard their home from nuisance wildlife. One such step is to properly secure waste cans and avoid piling debris close to the home. Another step is to remove or cut back any large trees or shrubs around the home. Many types of wildlife will utilize large trees or other such plants to gain access to the roof. Property owners should also avoid feeding pets outside or at the very least remove uneaten food to prevent attracting nuisance wildlife. Close up all possible entrances on the building or home. If all else fails, Critter Control can offer many different solutions to aid you in your endeavors. We offer a wide variety of custom solutions for your problem.

Wildlife Problems in Jackson, MS

As the most populous city in the state, Jackson, MS, experiences a host of pest issues. Its humid climate and proximity to the Pearl River attract nuisance wildlife all year round. In their search for food and shelter, animals such as raccoons, bats, and foxes cause problems for Mississippi homeowners.

Bat Colonies

While they typically roost in trees and caves, bats can also slip through small holes in home exteriors and gather in attics or sheds. An infected bat can transmit the rabies virus through blood and saliva. Any contact with these animals is dangerous, Bat teeth are tiny and sharp, which means bites often go unnoticed.

Squirrels in the Home

Jackson's parks and yards are prime foraging ground for squirrels looking for nuts, fruit, and seeds. These rodents are agile climbers that often use powerlines or branches to leap onto roofs. A squirrel can easily squeeze through gaps in soffits or broken vents to get indoors and cause costly damage inside a home.

Urban Raccoons

Raccoons are a common pest in Mississippi. These clever animals will overturn garbage cans and rummage through dumpsters for scraps. A raccoon will also dig in lawns and flowerbeds to find plants and grubs, destroying expensive landscaping work in the process.

Other Jackson Pests: Rabbits and Foxes

Rabbits often target Mississippi gardens for food, and these voracious eaters do a lot of damage in a short amount of time. Rabbit burrows can also attract a hungry fox. Foxes bring diseases like rabies and canine distemper into Jackson neighborhoods when they hunt for prey around homes.
