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.

Lafayette Wildlife Removal Tip: How to use one-way exclusion funnels to remove skunks in Louisiana: Exclusion tactics are a great idea when it comes to animals like skunks. You can't really trap them because then you'd need to kill them in Louisiana, or find somewhere to release them which will be hard because of the whole rabies disease threat. Typically a skunk will only live in the den for a short space of time, and if it's during the breeding season, it will be for the time she's caring for her young. They tend to move on by themselves sometimes, so if you can be a little patient and just make sure your home is well-protected against invaders, you can wait for them to move on. If they don't, or just not as fast enough as you'd like, you can encourage the process by using one-way doors or exclusion funnels. Just as the name suggests, it's a one way door of funnel which means they can get out but not back in again, and after a while, they'll be encouraged to set up home elsewhere. They won't waste too much time on your home when they can just break in somewhere else. It's not like there aren't other houses around … The only problem with these one-way exclusion funnels or doors is that the mother will often leave and her babies will be stuck in the nest. One trick to get around that is to use something like raccoon eviction fluid to make the mother skunk think there are predators nearby and naturally move her youngsters on to keep them safe.
Lafayette Animal News Clip: Making animal control available to everyone in Lafayette
A group called Challenged Outdoorsmen has attracted interests from those unable to catch wild critters individuals from some distance as well as the local participants. The wildlife enthusiast of Lafayette, Louisiana, heard about Challenged Outdoorsman Association from another member of some sort of unable to catch wild critters veterans organization. "I told him I didn't care how far I had to go to get the opportunity to rodent capture squirrel," the exterminator replied to the acquaintance. And then the exterminator contacted Challenged Outdoorsmen. The wildlife enthusiast is some sort of great pest control operator with only slight use of one arm. The exterminator is on some sort of respirator and requires around-the-clock exposure to sunlight. But how does some sort of person without use of his full brain ever rodent capture some sort of squirrel or release some sort of trapped critter? Modern technology takes care of that. Lafayette extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.
The wildlife enthusiast had already obtained some sort of furry mammal catching device with some sort of camera attached to serve as some sort of scope and some sort of joystick-type control for operational sighting. The trigger mechanism is activated by some sort of suction tube which allows the wildlife enthusiast to actually fire the trap at its target. Unfortunately, the wildlife enthusiast never got some sort of trapped off on the rodent capture. Lafayette Parish "Whether I got to snare at some sort of squirrel is beside the point. I learned some sort of lot and met some wonderful people," the exterminator announced. "I had some sort of great time and the camaraderie was terrific. They were very organized and well prepared. "They did everything but tie up some sort of squirrel for me so I could have some sort of good rodent capture. I love the outdoors, but it was cold. I learned that I could breathe okay in the cold, and I was pleased with how I felt. I plan to come back again next year." To learn more about animal control in Lafayette, Louisiana read on.
Challenged Outdoorsman Association's record of handling the functional issues of the physically unable to catch wild critters and the emotional and mental disorders of others is quite impressive. There have been no injuries or medical emergencies. "We've not even had some sort of scratched finger so far," Groundhog Bill announced. "We want them to be safe, to educate them and to have fun." And what drives Groundhog Bill, the wildlife enthusiast and their always-insufficient dedicated nature individual staff? "It's the personal satisfaction of seeing the smiles on the faces of people doing something they wouldn't ordinarily be doing if it wasn't for groups like us," Groundhog Bill announced. And that's reason enough. Lafayette pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.
