If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Clinton 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 Clinton, and I recommend the following:
Critter Capture, LLC
Cell Phone: 601-910-6687
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Hinds County Animal Services: 601-924-5252
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 601-910-6687
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 Hinds 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 Clinton wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Clinton 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.
Clinton 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 Clinton 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 Clinton 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 Clinton 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 Clinton 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 Clinton pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Clinton 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 Clinton trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Clinton 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.
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
. Critter Capture, LLC
also provides dead animal removal in Clinton. 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 Clinton 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 Clinton. And remember, we are a private business, not Hinds County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at 601-924-5252.
Hinds County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Clinton Wildlife Tip #1:How To Keep Skunks Out Of My Garden
When people start developing a new property for their habitat, they often plan to design a beautiful garden with a bountiful harvest. Carrots, lettuce, cucumbers, and tomatoes are some great options for home garden; however, some of you may also love to add few vegetables in the summer month. But the sad truth is that gardens are the prime targets of several wild animals including skunks. Homeowners that live in the skunk affected area often keep on looking for some potential methods to scare these creatures away from premises so that vegetation in the garden can be protected. Skunks not only raid your garden rather at the same time they may also spray odorous liquid on humans.
Here are few methods to keep skunks away from your garden:
1. Clean the food sources:
Skunks often prefer to visit human habitats in search of food, so the best way to avoid them is by cleaning all the open food sources. In order to keep them away from the garden, make sure you use tight lids on garbage cans. Also, the bird feeders must be kept at a great height so that skunks cannot reach the bird food inside; it is even good to empty the feeders in the night hours. Also, prefer to install a fence around your property; make sure it is buried below ground because skunks are great diggers.
2. Install motion lights:
Skunks are terrible nocturnal creatures, and they keep on raiding gardens in the night hours. The good thing to know is that they do not like bright lights so if you want to scare them away, you can install bright lights in the area. The market is also loaded with motion sensitive lights that are more suitable for garden areas.
3. Scare using smell:
Humans are always scared of skunk smells, but the great news is that skunks are also scared of few smells. You can use ammonia, citrus, or mothballs to deter skunks from your premises. Experts reveal that citrus is the most eco-friendly solution to scare skunks away from the garden; especially when you have pets and kids at home. You can simply soak some cotton balls into citrus solution and put them at various skunk access points in your premises.
4. Skunk removal:
In case if skunks are causing great harm to your garden and you are not able to scare them using any of the above solutions; the most suitable option at the end is calling professionals to execute skunk removal process. Note that skunks have odorous liquid in their scent glands and they prefer to use it for defense against predators and humans. So, in case if you find skunks moving around your garden, there is no point of going close to them. Rather, you should take help from professionals to catch them live and relocate them to some other safe location. If you do not take immediate steps to scare skunks away from your garden, they may soon build dens in the attic, shed or porch area.

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.
You can always call Critter Capture, LLC, any time of day, at 601-910-6687, for a price quote for Clinton wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Clinton, MS.
