  • Scratching Noises in Your Attic?

  • Problem Bird or Bat Infestation?

  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Louisiana's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Louisiana's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Tangipahoa Parish animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Hammond animal control for wildlife issues.

Hammond Wildlife Removal Tip: The Louisiana Banded Water Snake: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior: You won't see the banded water snake around much. For a start, it likes to live in water and will much prefer to stay hidden, and secondly, because they're not actually that large. They grow to around forty inches in length and just as the name suggests, they have bands running across them. With the browns, blacks, grey and dark greens, they are very well camouflaged among water, leaves, and long grasses. They don't eat other snakes so are well adapted to sharing their marshlands and watery spots with other species, but they won't share their food - rats, mice, fish, frogs, tadpoles, crayfish, and salamanders. Found in southeastern parts of the USA, you'll more likely find the banded water snake in east Florida, into Louisiana, and also in Indiana, and they give birth to live young, between and babies at a time. Some subspecies of this snake can be rather bright in color, ranging into bright browns and reds, but despite their bright patterns, none of the subspecies or the banded water snake are venomous. However they are known to be quite aggressive when threatened or provoked so it's best to leave this one to its own devices.

Hammond Animal News Clip: Virginia opossum- North American marsupial - There might be a number of marsupials in different continents of the world, but quite startlingly the only marsupial known to exist in North America is Virginia opossum. Their population augmentation in all different parts of North America is super-fast, and it is no more considered as just a wild animal living in far off areas, but over the passage of time Virginia opossum has extended its growth in cities. So while you tour some North American region, and if you find one near a trash point, or in a parking lot of city centre, you shouldn't be really amazed.

Appearance: A Virginia opossum resembles a domestic cat to quite an extent. Besides the body size, which is almost identical to an average adult cat, Virginia opossum also has some similar traits. Experts are working to research more about the common ancestry of cats and marsupials in general and Virginia opossum in particular. As the name suggests, it has a pocket on its belly. Although not much of use once it gets adult, it is one of the most prominent characteristic of marsupial in general and Virginia opossum in particular. It has quite small ears. The fur is on the entire body, albeit face and paws. The tail is more than handy to get hold of its prey (we would be discussing more about prey in the 'diet' portion.) The nose is considerably sharp while the eyes are of exceedingly far-sightedness.

Biology: It is a well-established fact that Virginia opossum is amongst the oldest mammals existent today on the face of earth. Here, the oldest doesn't relate with the life expectancy of Virginia opossum, but rather the ancient existence of its generation. According to estimates it is older than seventy millions or so. All in all, they were successful at passing all the phases of evolution.

Lifecycle: Contrary to common belief, Virginia opossum does not have an exceedingly longer span of life. This is on account of their rather typical metabolism patterns. On average they live about 2 to 3 years in wild. However, if any of these chose to live captivity, the maximum life span would be about 4 years, again not much as compared to other animals, but again nominal in relation with all marsupials. The breeding phase of single Virginia opossum could give birth to as many as three dozens of offspring, but usually get restricted to just six to eight. The pouch here plays a great role for the survival of the babies. The newborns are extremely smaller in size and develop gradually over the passage of time.

Habitat: A typical Virginia opossum would love to stay in wet and moisture-rich areas in order to ensure the best of the survival means. Farmland makes a good habitat to them, and so does the thick forests.

Diet: It is an omnivore, and could eat both plants and animals. Some might love to live in trash bins, and could fetch some real good source of meal in there. Fruits, berries and 'cockroaches' are some good options to them.

Behavior: Virginia opossum usually go in the pursuit of its food at night-time. They are good at escaping their predators and could run at a remarkable pace, dodging them with their by-birth capabilities. They are not as social, and like to stay aloof.
