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.

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 DeSoto county 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 Southaven animal control for wildlife issues.

Southaven Wildlife Removal Tip: Critter Repellent Techniques - The Sprinkler Method
Modern technology can also be used as a repellant for possum and these methods also tend to be very effective. One of these methods is the sprinkler method. This repellant is actually water based. Basically possums are classified as nocturnal, which means that they are active at night, which is one of the reasons that they are not noticed by many people. the sprinkler has sensors that are motion activated. The working process is that it senses a possum at motion and sprays a stream or shower of water, which frightens the possum and results in the possum vacating the area. The disadvantage of a sprinkler is that it is very effective at first. But If the possum visits frequently, then the animal might get used to the shower over time.

Hot Stuff
Another method for getting rid of possums is to use a spicy mixture. This repellant is known to work very well and can repel other animals that eat yard cultivation such as squirrels and skunks. A mixture that works well can be prepared by mixing small bits of garlic in water. This mixture can be sprayed on plants and does not affect the plants. A similar mixture can be prepared by nixing hot sauce and pepper in water along with the addition of dish washing liquid. This mixture can be applied to plants as well and does not affect their growth. Hot mustard when mixed with a little water along with a little dish washing liquid serves the same purpose.

Quassia Chips
Quassia is originally a tree cultivated in South America and is available in the market in the form of chipped bark. The bark is used as a main ingredient in many manufactured repellants that are used for possums. The repellant can be prepared by heating 5 to 6 ounces of Quassia bark in about half gallon of water for an hour over low heat. The use this mixture in a spray bottle and add a small amount of dish washing liquid. The spray can be used similarly as other repellants. It is safe for plants and will definitely keep the possum away.

Southaven Animal News Clip: Raccoons in the attic - Using traps to catch raccoons is one of the best ways to remove them from your attic. However, you should be humane to the animals and not use lethal traps instead this is what you should do. Take a look at your attic and spot where the raccoons are hiding, you can do this by closely listening to the voices they make. Most of the times, the raccoons staying in an attic is a mother with her babies. If that's the case then carefully remove the babies when the mother is not around. Make sure you're wearing gloves while doing this because though gentle even baby raccoons can bite and scratch you with their teeth and claws, which can cause rabies. Also wear a filter mask to avoid breathing in any air-borne diseases produced due to the urine and feaces of the raccoons. Once, you've removed the baby raccoons carefully by hand, set one of them as bait for the mommy. Place a large divider cage with a wall and let the mother go inside the cage, once she gets in, she'll press the lever to reunite

with her baby. Now that you have caught all the raccoons, call a wildlife rehabber or simply drop the raccoons about 5-10 miles away from your attic.

You think your job's done now? Haha! The answer is no! Get back home; look for the possible holes in the roof, secure any open areas, broken grids, windows or ducts from where animals like raccoons can possibly enter. Keep your place clean, in order to avoid attracting animals in future. Carefully look for any damage that the raccoons might have caused especially the AC ducts or the insulation materials. If any damage has been done to the appliances, get them repaired as soon as possible before they become fatal for you accidentally. Get the place cleaned up of raccoon's urine and shit as it can carry a lot of contagious diseases.

Getting rid of raccoons sure seems like a difficult task, but it's not as difficult as it sounds. If you're bold enough, you can do it yourself. If not, like I said before, no worries, just call a professional. In either case, be aware of why they are there in the first place? The answer is a broken something in your attic. Find it, and get it repaired.
