Common Central Mississippi Wild Animal Issues, Q&A
Can you describe the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?
The most common wildlife issue within Central Mississippi is the invasion of nuisance wildlife into residential and commercial spaces. Many animals such as squirrels, raccoons and opossums 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 Jackson and Meridian?
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 wildlife prevention or exclusion tips for 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.
When should homeowners call Critter Control?
Wildlife damage can be quite serious to property owners. Gnawed wiring can produce house fires, bats and birds can carry harmful viruses, and larger animals such as raccoons can destroy roofs or soffits. Property owners should contact a reputable wildlife company such as Critter Control at the first signs of wildlife activity.
Wildlife Problems in Jackson and Central Mississippi
As the most populous city in the state, Jackson, MS, experiences a variety of pest issues. Its humid climate and proximity to the Pearl River attract nuisance wildlife year-round. In their search for food and shelter, animals such as raccoons, bats, and foxes cause significant property damage and potential health issues for Central Mississippi home and business owners.
While they typically roost in trees and caves, bats can 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, and bites can go unnoticed due to the small size of bat teeth.
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.
Raccoons are a common pest in Mississippi. These intelligent 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 Central Mississippi Pests: Rabbits and Foxes
Rabbits often target Mississippi gardens for food, and these voracious eaters can cause costly damage in a short amount of time. Rabbit burrows can also attract foxes, which can carry diseases like rabies and canine distemper into Central Mississippi neighborhoods.
