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 St. Tammany 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 Slidell animal control for wildlife issues.

Slidell 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.

Slidell Animal News Clip: Fox- A 'clever' splendor. - Fox is a famed creature, not only widely present in most continents of the world, but also in the ancient literature for its behavioral features in general, and cleverness in particular. Although there are several breeds of foxes all around the globe, we shall be discussing more about the eminent red fox- since the main focus of our article is the rich North American wildlife.

Appearance: The fox could be of different color, multifarious to be specific. Gray and the red color are the most common ones. Fox are renowned for their thick, feathery and long tails. Besides adding to the aesthetic beauty of the animals, they also use it for more than one purpose. The teeth of the fox are of significant importance to the survival of the animal. The nose might not be as vivid, but fox is believed to have some remarkable smelling capabilities. In addition, the ears are quite large and noticeable.

Biology: The conservation of foxes in general, and red fox in particular is on the 'least concerned' scale at the current point of time. Their species are quite large in number, and so are the subspecies. However, the genus of foxes is considered to be far fewer. The Genus is called as Vulpes while the order is known as Carnivora (suggesting that fox is a carnivorous animal). One might be amazed to know that the class they belong to is different from their phylem. The latter is Chordata while the former is Mammalia.

Lifecycle: The gestation period of an average fox would be about two months. This is considered to be particularly lesser span when compared to other mammals in general and Carnivora in particular in whose case the gestation period could range from 6 to 8 months. The mating period lasts for two months while the period of re-growth for the young fox could go uptil couple of months (this is quite longer as compared to other mammals). The male fox cater for the feeding needs of the offspring. The life expectancy is about 10 to 12 years.

Habitat: Most of the foxes prefer to live in dens they themselves create. The location of dens is usually areas far from human population and possibly their undesirable intervention. Jungles, farmlands, parries and other similar sort of areas make a good habitat for most foxes.

Diet: As discussed above in the 'biology' part, fox is heavily carnivorous animal that loves to eat away other mammals, and hunt them on their own. Although they might go on to eat remains of dead animals, they are not usually attributed with this behavior. Rabbits are considered to be the most favored prey of most species of foxes.

Behavior: They spend their time in open and chose to go in dens while reproducing. They tends to sleep for the most part of the day, while comes out in the wild for the night. They are good hunters, and rarely let their prey go away. Their ears might be quite large, but their hearing capabilities are simple remarkable. They are good at sighting their prey as well.
