Wildlife Animal Control Services in Central Mississippi
Critter Control provides wildlife control services in Jackson and throughout Central Mississippi. From inspection to removal—and even exclusion and repair—we have the services you need to get rid of raccoons, rodents, and other nuisances fast. First, we identify the animal on the property, then use humane methods to remove the animal and secure weak points where more could enter. If damage has been done, we can make those repairs for a complete restoration.
Our wildlife specialists are trained and equipped with the most advanced removal tools and techniques in the industry, ensuring the safe and humane removal of all nuisance animals from residential and commercial properties in Central Mississippi.
Nuisance Wildlife in Central Mississippi
Central Mississippi includes the capital city of Jackson, the most populous city in the state with more than 160,000 residents. The city’s humid climate and proximity to the Pearl River attract nuisance wildlife year-round. In their search for food and shelter, wild animals can cause significant property damage and potential health issues for the area’s home and business owners.
Squirrels are found throughout Mississippi, and Jackson's parks and yards are prime foraging ground for squirrels looking for nuts, fruit, and seeds. If you find one or more inside your home, it’s necessary to have it removed as soon as possible as these critters may bring fleas and ticks indoors.
Inspection: Our inspector will take note of droppings, food such as nuts, and nesting material. We will also look for signs like chew marks on, in, or around your home and small openings leading to the attic or crawl space.
Removal: It’s best to leave squirrel removal to a professional with the most humane equipment. We usually remove squirrels with a live trap or one-way door.
Repairs: Sealing all access points to prevent future entry after squirrel removal will be the best course of action. We will also clean and disinfect the affected area.
Raccoons are clever, dexterous—and quite destructive if they find your unsealed trash can or make their way into your attic. These animals are a common pest in Jackson and other Central Mississippi cities and towns. If one or more raccoons continually raid your trash cans or take up residence inside your house, please call Critter Control. Our specialists will remove the intruders for you using the most humane tools and techniques.
Inspection: Our trained specialists will inspect your property inside and out; in particular, we will examine your chimneys and crawl spaces for signs that raccoons have made themselves at home.
Removal: Never try to remove a raccoon yourself. These animals can become aggressive and may carry diseases such as rabies. We will safely capture and remove them with a live trap.
Repairs: After we trap all raccoons, we will seal up areas where raccoons have been able to gain access to your property and come into your home to ensure they stay out. And don’t worry about the mess—we will clean up all feces and disinfect the area.
Rat and Mice Pest Control
Central Mississippi communities have their fair share of rodent problems. If there’s easy access to food and water, rats and mice will take advantage of the opportunity. As soon as you notice rodents inside or around your property, don’t wait. Please call Critter Control as soon as possible.
Inspection: We will take note of the usual signs of a rodent infestation—urine, droppings, and the sound of scurrying within your walls.
Removal: Please do not attempt to control rats or mice yourself, as they can carry diseases that can spread to humans. Instead, our specialist will set traps in and around your property.
Repairs: We will clean and disinfect the area and seal up all points of entry.
Residents of Jackson and other cities and towns in Central Mississippi should not be surprised if they encounter a bat roosting in their attic. The state is home to 15 bat species. Finding one in your home can be unsettling; however, never try to remove it yourself; bats can carry and transmit rabies to humans and pets.
Inspection: We will thoroughly inspect your property for guano, a strong scent of ammonia, and small openings that could invite bats inside.
Removal: The most effective and humane bat removal is by utilizing a bat valve, along with a full home exclusion. Again, please avoid disturbing a resting bat and attempting to chase it outside.
Repairs: Our specialist will seal up all points of entry to ensure bats do not reenter your home. Also, please leave cleaning up all guano to your wildlife specialist.
For most property owners, crossing paths with a snake in their garden or garage can be a very unsettling experience. While only six of the 55 snake species in the state of Mississippi are venomous, it’s best to keep your distance and contact our Jackson-based office to remove the snake from your property if it’s a nuisance.
Inspection: Our specialist is well aware that snakes are adept at hiding. A snake will naturally try to avoid people, but they can become hostile when scared or cornered. We will carefully inspect your home to locate all entry points that can welcome snakes inside. Once we find the snake(s), we will be sure to identify the species and whether it’s venomous.
Removal: Live traps and direct capture are effective methods of snake control. And please remember: never handle the heads of freshly killed venomous snakes, as they may still be able to inject venom through a bite reflex that lingers for a short time.
Repairs: We will seal these off once the venomous snakes are removed. Critter Control will also help prevent venomous snakes from entering vents, exhaust fans, and chimneys in the home.
Rabbits and Foxes in Mississippi Yards
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.
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.
