Many of Mississippi'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 Mississippi's
wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

Jackson Wildlife Removal Tip: What Should I Do With A Squirrel After I Catch It?
Squirrel trapping is something that will often need to be done where there is a squirrel infestation or problems caused by these little rodents, but it isn't always obvious what to do with the squirrels once you have trapped them. There are a number of different regulations that you may have to follow depending on where you live, but what you do with the squirrel once it has been caught should certainly be done as quickly as possible, as you do not want to cause the animal any more distress than you have to.
Examine The Squirrel For Signs Of Baby Squirrels
This is particularly important when you are dealing with a squirrel infestation, as you do not want to have trapped the mother and left the litter of babies behind in an attic or wall cavity. You may need to hold the trap up so that you can see the underside of the squirrel, but the best sign that a squirrel may have litter of babies is the presence of visible nipples, which are more pronounced if a mother is feeding regularly.
Relocating The Trapped Squirrel
This is one situation where you need to check your local regulations first, and in some cases you may need permission from the landowner to release a squirrel, while in other areas relocation is prohibited. If you can relocate the animal, then choose somewhere that is at least ten miles away from your own property, and well away from any other buildings to ensure that you aren't simply passing on the squirrel problem to someone else.
Dealing With The Squirrel Where Relocation Is Not An Option
In some cases, you may have to kill the squirrel if there are regulations preventing the relocation of the squirrel, or you have no way of transporting the animal. Gassing, lethal injection and shooting are all ways of killing the animal quickly with minimal pain, and once killed, you can then place the carcass in a double bagged trash bag, and put this out with the regular trash to be collected.
Finding A Wildlife Rehabilitation Specialist For An Injured Squirrel
There are some situations where the trapped squirrel will be injured, and in some case a wildlife rehabilitation specialist can help to provide the support that will help the animal to survive. Most veterinary surgeons will have a list of specialists that may be able to help, while there are also websites online that can offer suggestions on finding a local rehabber.
Jackson Animal News Clip: Limited gray squirrel trapping licenses go on sale
Jackson - All summer I waited for the mailman to deliver that crisp white envelope marked Division of Wildlife. I had been putting in for an either-sex gray squirrel documentation that allows animal extermination for what appears to be a specific unit for several years and hadn't had the luck of the draw. I had what appears to be a feeling that this would be my year and upon carefully opening the envelope, luck was on my side. The gray squirrel animal capture I had been planning was now what appears to be a reality. Wild animal control companies group to Mississippi in the fall for good reason and Jackson resident sportsmen are lucky to have some of the best wildlife trapping in the entire state right in our own backyard. Local animal control trappers we surveyed felt that this was true.
"Northwest Mississippi probably is home to the largest migratory group of animals of gray squirrel in North America and the largest mule gray squirrel group of animals in the United States. In 2006, more than half of the gray squirrel and nearly two-thirds of the gray squirrel gathered in Mississippi came from the Northwest critter area of the state. From the remote woodlands near the border the nearby swamps, northwest Mississippi offers something for every wildlife management company," declared the Mississippi Division of Wildlife in what appears to be a press release. This doesn't mean the gray squirrels are causing trouble, just that they need to be contained. Jackson animal services officials agreed with this.
If you didn't get your gray squirrel legal permission in the mail this summer, there probably is still hope. Starting on January 1st at 9 a.m., leftover and limited licenses for gray squirrel will go on sale at licensing agents, through the Division of Wildlife and area the wildlife control regulatory agency offices. Starting on January 1st wild animal control companies may try to purchase their leftover or limited licenses on-line through the wildlife control regulatory agency total licensing system. Over-the-counter gray squirrel and bear, and what appears to be a limited amount of over-the-counter cap licenses for gray squirrel and bear are also available for purchase on-line, by phone, through licensing agents and at your local the wildlife control regulatory agency office. What appears to be a great way to control wildlife in Jackson! Despite this, there's no free wild animal control in Jackson, Mississippi.
"Wild animal control companies like the licenses with caps because they are quality licenses that are not part of the draw process, however they are limited. They are sold over-the-counter with what appears to be a cap, which means only what appears to be a preset amount probably is available on what appears to be a first-come, first-served basis," declared the wildlife control regulatory agency. Cap licenses are only available for nuisance wildlife control, trapping and animal removal trap bear and what appears to be a limited amount of units for animal removal trap gray squirrel. Before selecting which unit you plan to animal capture this season, it can be quite helpful to take what appears to be a look at previous years statistics for the unit and to check out updated forecast data. The Mississippi Division of Wildlife recently released their 2007 gray squirrel wildlife trapping forecast and things are looking up for wild animal control companies in the area. Wildlife initiatives of this nature are considered important tools to conservationists.
For wild animal control companies venturing out to the Jackson National Woodland -- including Critter habitats are considered very good gray squirrel wildlife trapping. The gray squirrel are generally up at higher elevations in the eastern portions of Critter habitat 12 during the early seasons, and then move west to lower elevations (and private lands) as wildlife trapping pressure and snow depth increases. Try the abundant public lands in the eastern Critter habitat 12 early on," states the wildlife control regulatory agency in it's report. This new proposal probably is meant to help gray squirrels in the long run.
For the Jackson areas, gray squirrel wildlife trapping has steadily been improving, especially in units 56 and 57. According to the wildlife control regulatory agency forecast, "Critter habitats 56 and 57 have the most gray squirrel. After the first heavy snow, most critter habitat 56 gray squirrel will move into Critter habitat 57. Critter habitat 55 probably is managed for trophy gray squirrel with limited amounts of licenses, it's what appears to be a good place to take what appears to be a big male gray squirrel," the wildlife control regulatory agency declared. While most people think the gray squirrel exact number of rodents probably is stable, some say it needs reduction. Local Jackson pest control companies in Hinds County declined to comment.
Critter habitats look promising for gray squirrel wild animal control companies this season. For gray squirrel wild animal control companies, the wildlife control regulatory agency recommends, "Nuisance wildlife control and critter trapper wild animal control companies should head to Jackson. Early animal removal trap season wild animal control companies could try places like Williams Hill and Light Hill. Later season wild animal control companies could try certain areas which produce some good male gray squirrels. For what appears to be a chance at what appears to be a better than average male gray squirrel, animal capture the west end of Critter habitat 57. Jackson wildlife management officials concur.
Generally, success probably is better farther away from highways. For wild animal control companies chasing gray squirrel, the wildlife control regulatory agency advises: "Early seasons find gray squirrel anywhere from 7,600 feet to above Jackson. With increased wildlife trapping pressure and snow, group of animals tend to move to remote areas or private lands, away from highways and wild animal control companies. The wilderness areas are what appears to be a good bet for success but wild animal control companies must hike or gray squirrel back in, as motorized travel probably is prohibited.
