Wildlife Control & Removal from Fischer Environmental

The Gulf Coast region is home to various forms of wildlife, and while many of these animals can be cute and/or interesting, they can also be a nuisance to the owners of homes and businesses. Some of these animals can be dangerous or destructive, so it is important to be informed about the different types of animals that are out there and the potential threats that they can pose.

Wildlife Pests

In the states of Mississippi and Louisiana, residents may encounter all sorts of wildlife. It doesn’t matter whether you live in a major city like New Orleans, or a more rural area. Animals are there and in many cases, they might view your property as a great place to find shelter or an easy source of food. The animals that most commonly become a nuisance to humans in this region are raccoons, snakes, opossums and armadillos, but there are many more that could get into the home or yard and cause some real problems. While it may seem like a good idea to try to attempt snake or raccoon removal on your own, there can be some significant dangers and it is a situation that is almost always better left to the New Orleans wildlife control professionals.

Potential Dangers

The risk and potential dangers that come with different types of wildlife will depend on the specific animal that you are talking about. Some animals may gain entry to the home in order to find food or build a nest and this can lead to a situation where the human occupants are exposed to different diseases that they may carry or dangerous behaviors that they exhibit. Additionally, a nesting animal is likely to cause great damage to the home. If you have something like raccoons or squirrels nesting in your attic, they could disturb and destroy the insulation when they use it as a nesting material and they could cause damage to electrical wires. Furthermore, their presence is going to come with their waste being left behind and this is going to have an impact on the cleanliness of the area.

Protect Your Home

When it comes to wildlife control, the best and most effective part of the strategy will be to prevent them from entering the home in the first place. Searching the home for possible points of entry will help. Once you have found a way for the different animals to enter the home, you then need to find a way to restrict the access from this point. For many situations, you can cover the access point by using materials like wood or cement, but in others, you may need to use a specialized exclusion device. For many homeowners, finding all of the points at which pests are gaining entry can be difficult. Some of these animals are very clever and it may take the services of a professional to effectively exclude some animals from the home.

In addition to limiting the points of access, you will also want to make your home a less inviting environment for the animal. Make sure that all of your food is secure, use trashcans that have lids that snap shut and fix any leaky faucets that you may have.
