If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Biloxi home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Mississippi 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 Biloxi, and I recommend the following:
Critter Capture, LLC
Cell Phone: 228-265-5361
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Harrison County Animal Services: 228-392-0641
Critter Capture, LLC specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Mississippi also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Critter Capture, LLC 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 228-265-5361
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 Mississippi and Harrison County 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
Critter Capture, LLC is a full-service Biloxi wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Biloxi pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Critter Capture, LLC 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.
Biloxi wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Mississippi 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 Mississippi law. We offer Biloxi raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Critter Capture, LLC. 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 Biloxi 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 Biloxi 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 Biloxi rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Mississippi 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 Biloxi pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Biloxi 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 Biloxi trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Biloxi 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. Critter Capture, LLC does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Critter Capture, LLC. 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.

. 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
. Critter Capture, LLC
also provides dead animal removal in Biloxi. 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 Biloxi snake removal - most of the snakes in Mississippi are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Biloxi. And remember, we are a private business, not Harrison County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 228-392-0641.
Harrison County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Biloxi Wildlife Tip #1:Should I Ever Poison A Raccoon?
If you live in a prone raccoon area, you are definitely in trouble. These notorious creatures can attack your home anytime and can cause major destruction all around. There is no doubt to say that raccoons are complete unwanted animals in residential areas still they keep on visiting in search of food and shelter.
The terrible thing to know about these animals is that they carry harmful disease viruses that can get transferred to the pets and humans in the house. Also, if they somehow get space to enter your attic; they will create their den in this area and will soon destroy your property with their continuous scratching habits. You might have seen them digging big holes in the yard and garden area. It is intolerable to see them destroying the crops and vegetables in the garden. But if you have already faced all these situations, probably you are now planning to kill the destructive raccoon that lives in your attic. So, how you are going to do it?
Actually, there are plenty of methods to scare raccoons away from the house; however, only a few selected one out of them provide the desired result. Many frustrated homeowners just want to kill raccoon by using a humane method whereas others are even ready to use terrible inhumane ways to do so. It means you are really angry with the terrible habits of these notorious creatures. Well! Now let us come to the important point. Some of you may be interested in using poison to kill the raccoon as it appears an easy way to handle the situation. But we do not recommend using poison to kill raccoons. In simple words, we can say that poisoning is a raccoon is the worst way to kill this animal.
Experts say that using poison to control wildlife in your premises is the most ignorant, inhumane and lazy way to use and the state laws do not allow you to do so. Even state laws are against killing or causing any harm to these small creatures. This is an improper way to resolve the conflict between humans and animals, and we can call it a horrible choice. There are so many reasons for not using poison to kill the raccoon; some of them are discussed as below:
1. It is illegal to use poison to kill raccoon in the United States. If you do so, you will have to suffer punishment and penalty for this cruel act.
2. Secondly, there is no guarantee that when you use poisonous bait for raccoon, it will be eaten by the targeted animal. There are chances that it can cause harm to any other animal or pet on the premises. Even your own dog or cat can die due to use of poisonous bait.
3. Depending on what kind of poison you use to kill the raccoons; there are chances that animal simply become ill and suffer lots of pain for several days without losing its life. This is a bad way to torture an animal.
4. Also, if the raccoon dies in your wall or attic by eating poison, its body will decompose in the dark, unreachable corner of the house leading to terrible odor and disease viruses.

Mississippi Wildlife Information:
Mississippi State bird: Northern mockingbird
State mammal: White-tailed deer
State reptile: American alligator
State fish: Largemouth bass
State insect: European honeybee
Mississippi, named after the Mississippi River, is a place of flat land and gradual hills. The majority of the state is heavily forested, and the mountain ranges within are actually better classified as foothills. Numerous large river systems run through the region, but the Mississippi River is by far the largest. Lakes and wetlands can be found in almost every corner of the region, supplying the animals and plants with the water needed to survive in the constant heat. The summers are long, hot and humid, and the cooler winter weeks are short compared to other states in the nation. Hurricanes are a concern for residents of Mississippi; the state is prone to violent weather coming up the Gulf of Mexico.
Canoodling, or the art of using your finger as bait for catfish, is a popular pastime in the state. Though locals have caught impressive catfish using just their hands, it is the commercial catfish aquaculture that supplies the United States with the bulk of catfish consumed annually. Catfish are also a tasty treat for one of the state's most populous animals-the American alligator. Alligators are at home in the large river systems of Mississippi. Plenty of large aquatic life exists to keep the reptiles well-fed. Other semi-aquatic creatures are nutria, muskrats and river otters.
The heavy forestation means most people in Mississippi live near trees. This close contact with nature also means the inevitable clash between humans and nuisance wildlife. The state has raccoons, opossums, rats, mice, striped skunks, spotted skunks, flying squirrels, grey squirrels, fox squirrels, rabbits, and armadillos.
For predators, the small animals are most wary of bobcats and coyotes, though both mountain lions and black bears can feed on the smaller critters. For the most part, black bears in Mississippi can find enough food in the way of seeds, berries and insects to avoid having to actively hunt. There are not many grazing animals in Mississippi, likely due to the low elevation and hot climate. White-tailed deer are the most common hooved-wildlife species seen.
With such a warm climate, the state is home to many different types of bats. These animals can make their homes anywhere, often choosing a cave, hollowed tree, or the attic of an unsuspecting homeowner.
