If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Greenville 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 Greenville, and I recommend the following:
Cell Phone: 662-388-5112
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Washington County Animal Services: (662) 332-7614
Animal Pros 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 Animal Pros 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 662-388-5112
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 Washington 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
Animal Pros is a full-service Greenville wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Greenville pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Animal Pros 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.
Greenville 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 Greenville raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Animal Pros. 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 Greenville 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 Greenville 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 Greenville 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 Greenville pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Greenville 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 Greenville trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Greenville 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. Animal Pros does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Animal Pros. 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
. Animal Pros
also provides dead animal removal in Greenville. 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 Greenville 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 Greenville. And remember, we are a private business, not Washington County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (662) 332-7614.
Washington County animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Greenville Wildlife Tip #1:What Are Some Ways To Kill A Opossum In The Yard?
Having possums in the yard or garden area is the biggest trouble for most homeowners because these creatures keep on destroying the whole property. They are not just limited to fruits and vegetables in the outdoor areas rather at the same time they are also trying to gain access to the attic, porch and deck area to build bests. Possums are also common carriers of several harmful disease viruses. Hence, it becomes important to search for some potential method to get rid of these creatures as soon as possible. Experts advise looking for some humane methods to complete the job so that animal does not suffer much pain. Below we have listed few methods to assist you in this task:
Shoot the animal:
One of the most trusted and easy to use way to kill possums in the yard is to shoot it directly by using a gun or shotgun. It will ensure you the instant death of the possum, and the animal will face the least pain. However, in order to be successful with your target, you need to have the experience to use firearms. The challenge is to hit the possum right on his head so that it dies immediately; if you miss the opportunity and shoot the animal badly causing some serious injury; it may become the most inhumane and painful way to kill possums. Also, in order to use a firearm to kill possums, you must have a license to do so, and it must be listed as a legal method in the state laws where you live.
There are generally two types of traps that can be used to deal with possum problems in the yard; one is a lethal trap, and other is non-lethal. The second one includes live cage traps that are used to relocate the animal to cause any harm or without killing it. However, the possum may find its way back to your yard within very less time. In such situation using lethal traps is the only suitable option to kill the animal instantly. The market is currently loaded with wide range of lethal traps, but you need to choose one very carefully to make sure that it can kill the animal without causing much pain. Also, while setting up the lethal traps, you need to be careful about location; if you place it at wrong area, you may end up killing your pet. Neighbors cat, a stray cat, skunk or any other animal. It may also cause harm to the kids playing in your garden.
If anywhere in your mind you have a plan to use poison to kill possums, take this thought immediately out. Experts never ever advise using poison to kill these animals. Although the market is loaded with so many poisonous baits to kill possums, they are not trusted to ensure the death of the animal. Most of them make the animal ill and cause pain for several days. Hence, there is no point in using poison to kill possums.
Greenville Wildlife Tip #2:
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 Animal Pros, any time of day, at 662-388-5112, for a price quote for Greenville wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Greenville, MS.
