Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Baker, LA

Baker Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Baker home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Louisiana wildlife removal only. This is a specialty business, and regular pest control companies do not use the proper techniques to solve animal problems. I have spent many years reviewing Baker, and I recommend the following:

Wildlife X Team
Cell Phone: 225-289-4143

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call East Baton Rouge Parish Animal Services: (225) 774-7700

Wildlife X Team specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats or mice in homes. Louisiana also has a documented problem with bats in buildings, and Wildlife X Team is specially trained in bat removal. They also perform general wildlife trapping services, such as the capture and removal of skunks or opossums on the property. Call 225-289-4143 to discuss your critter problem and schedule a same-day or next-day appointment.

When hiring a company to solve your wild animal problem, you want these features:
    - Specializes in wildlife removal, not pest control
    - Fully Louisiana and East Baton Rouge Parish licensed and insured
    - Works 7 days per week (critters don't take weekends off)
    - Performs full building inspections: enters and inspects attic
    - Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
    - Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste

Wildlife X Team is a full-service Baker wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Baker pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife X Team performs a full inspection of the home or property, and determines why the animal(s) are there, and if inside a building, how the animals got inside. All animals (including rodents) are trapped and removed, or if possible, removed from the building using special exclusion devices. Once the animals are gone, preventative repairs are essential, and cleanup is sometimes recommended.

  Baker wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Louisiana to trap without a license. Trap type is very important and there are many different types, bait is somewhat relevant, trap placement is vital, and there are dozens of small things that are very important to know. Safety is a concern. Then once the animal is trapped, it must be removed and dealt with in the proper manner according to Louisiana law. We offer Baker raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
  Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife X Team. Many types of animals like to live in attics. This includes squirrels, raccoons, rats, mice, bats, birds, and even possums. Critters like to go into attics for a safe place to live and raise their young. Removing animals from attics is very complex work, partly because of the presence of baby animals. If you need Baker squirrel removal, we can remove all the squirrels from your attic, and seal out any future ones. Read more about how to get rid of squirrels.
  Rodent control must be done in a very specific way. First off, the most important thing is that all the openings that rats and mice can use to enter a house be sealed. Then all the rodents must be physically trapped and removed. Never, ever use poison! Most Baker exterminators will just use this lazy poison technique to kill rodents, and it causes more harm than good - dead stinky rats, and it doesn't solve the problem. Call us for correct Baker rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
  Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Louisiana is known to have colonizing bats who often live in buildings. Bats love attics. If not removed, the colony can grow to a very large size over the years. The bat droppings are often corrosive and cause health risks. The same goes for bird droppings on or in buildings. We perform Baker pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Baker bat removal. We remove 100% of the bat colony and seal the building so that it's totally bat-proof. Read more about how to get rid of bats.
  If you have animals inside a house, no job is complete without proper exclusion repairs. If you simply hire a Baker trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Baker wildlife control company that identifies 100% of the animal entry points into your building, and seals them shut with professional repairs. In addition, in many cases animals have left waste or contamination behind, and you'll want a company that can provide professional cleaning services. Wildlife X Team does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife X Team. We also trap and remove animals that destroy lawns, such as moles, or digging animals. Sometimes animals like opossums will live under buildings, steal pet food, raid garbage cans, etc. Read about how to get rid of opossums. Skunks commonly live under sheds or decks, and set up a den. We can trap and remove them without them spraying. Read about how to get rid of skunks. Wildlife X Team also provides dead animal removal in Baker. If you need help with any other wildlife conflict, from a fox, beaver, groundhog, or any other critter, we can solve it. We also do Baker snake removal - most of the snakes in Louisiana are not venomous, but call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes in Baker. And remember, we are a private business, not East Baton Rouge Parish Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the Parish at (225) 774-7700. East Baton Rouge Parish animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Baker Wildlife Tip #1:
What diseases do squirrels carry?

Squirrels are known to rarely bite. This is unless they have felt threatened or have been cornered. They are also known to co-exist with people with only a little issue. But, they still are a carrier of so many diseases. That is why their presence is occasionally dangerous and undesirable.

Diseases They Commonly Carry

1. Lyme disease. This is spread by their ticks. These ticks are a carrier of Lyme disease. Prior to the symptoms felt, these include inflammation of the brain, spinal cord, stiffness and nerve path.
2. Salmonellosis. The bacteria are mostly found in the droppings causing fever, abdominal cramps and diarrhea.
3. Tularemia. This is known to be an unpleasant condition. This can bring about ulcers and swollen lymph nodes.
4. Rabies. This is passed by squirrels by way of virus and by way of scratching and biting.

Other Diseases They Carry

There are still other diseases that are carried by squirrels like Colorado tick fever, louse-borne typhus, encephalitis and plague. These diseases are considered fatal especially after they are left untreated. That is why you need to monitor the symptoms and you need to ask for medical attention. This is especially right after you or your pet get in contact with squirrel feces and urine. Remember as well that breathing in particles will be the usual mode of disease transmission.

Preventing the Diseases

You will need to avoid or prevent the onset of these diseases. You need to avoid the pets from getting in contact with the squirrels including their waste. In addition to that, you will need to wear some masks and gloves. That way, your pet will be able to reduce the chances of contracting diseases or illnesses. If ever an infected squirrel appears in your residential area, you will need to ask help from other experts.

Call the Wildlife Removal Services!

You will need to call the wildlife removal services. This is simply suggested by many people, especially those who have experienced the same thing. They are also knowledgeable enough in solving the issue that has been pestering you for a long time.

Never Handle or Approach Squirrels

Due to the very reason that diseases could be transferred by feces, bites, scratches and urine, you must never ever handle or approach squirrels. Only professional technicians are trusted in removing these problematic animals. They will also sanitize your home in order that safety and security will be ensured of.

Baker Wildlife Tip #2:

Louisiana Wildlife Information:

Louisiana State bird: Brown pelican
State mammal: Black bear
State reptile: American alligator
State amphibian: American green tree frog
State fish: White crappie
State insect: European honey bee

Louisiana is famous for the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. The state sits against the Gulf of Mexico, and much of the southern region is below sea level. Because of this, when Louisiana gets hit by a tropical storm or a hurricane, it gets hit pretty hard. That same region which is prone to storms from the ocean is comprised mostly of watery marshes, swamps, and bayous. The northern part of the state is hilly but not mountainous. Overall, the climate is warm and humid. The summers are hot, and the winters are very mild. During the cooler months, the state is prone to substantial rainfall.

The areas in the mainland region of Louisiana are no longer dominated by the Florida panther, a large feline which used to roam many of the southern states. According to the local authorities, the big cat is considered extinct within the state. Now, aside from coyotes, the black bears tend to keep the public on their toes. Louisiana boasts two different types of black bear, the American black bear and the Louisiana black bear. The differences between the two are very subtle, and Louisiana black bears tend to be smaller and leaner than the standard American black bear. At first glance, however, it is very difficult to tell them apart. While bears are found in all regions of the state, they are not considered very dangerous. Instead, the bears are looked at as nuisance animals for their raiding of bird feeders and garbage cans.

The black bears join the ranks of other pest animals like raccoons, skunks, armadillos, opossums, beavers, otters, squirrels, rats, and mice. All of these critters can be found in every region of Louisiana.

With so many miles of swamp land, it isn't surprising that alligators are one of the most dangerous animals in the state. Alligators thrive in the marshes along the coast, using the watery vegetation to conceal them as they stalk prey. Many of the large birds in the area like cranes and pelicans can fall victim if they don't pay close enough attention to the water's edge.

Alligators aren't the only reptiles to love Louisiana. The region is home to many different species of snakes, and it was once a habitat for a number of subspecies of sea turtles.
