If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Harahan 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 Harahan, and I recommend the following:
Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC
Cell Phone: 504-684-8250
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Jefferson
Parish Animal Services: (504) 736-6111
Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC 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 Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, 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 504-684-8250
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 Jefferson
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
Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC is a full-service Harahan wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Harahan pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, 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.
Harahan 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 Harahan raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, 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 Harahan 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 Harahan 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 Harahan 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 Harahan pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Harahan 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 Harahan trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Harahan 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. Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, 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
. Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC
also provides dead animal removal in Harahan. 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 Harahan 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 Harahan. And remember, we are a private business, not Jefferson
Parish Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the
Parish at (504) 736-6111.
Jefferson Parish animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Harahan Wildlife Tip #1:HOW TO INSPECT A HOUSE FOR PIGEON ENTRY HOLES?
Due to urbanisation, pigeons face tough time in finding a place for building their nest. This is the reason that even small holes in your house are targeted by pigeons. Pigeons create lot of noise and spread dirt in the area occupied by them and their droppings can even cause yeast or fungus infection in humans. So here is how you can inspect your house for pigeon entry holes so that they don't sneak into your basement and attic and set up nests.
Careful & thorough inspection: No matter if you have a multi-storey house or apartment, it is necessary to observe all areas of your home. This will help you in fixing the damages, if any. Any open spaces or holes can potentially be occupied by pigeons. Some areas might need special attention if they are located remotely. You can hire services of professionals and they can help you in carrying out detailed inspection and covering the potential holes with relevant materials. Pigeons are not very good at sight during night and hence they settle down as the sun starts setting. Hence you may try carrying out inspection at night also!
Follow the signs: Pigeons are not silent invaders which means that if they are making nest at your home then you can easily notice the signs. But pigeons don't choose a place for their nest instantly. They visit the place multiple times to be sure of the safety of the location. Also, they are very intelligent when it comes to remembering the ways, which is precisely the reason why they were called messengers! So, if you are noticing frequent visits of pigeons then this is a clear-cut signal that something is cooking up!
Source of food and water: Not only pigeons, but all pests and birds prefer to find a spot near the source of their regular food and water. If your home has a nearby spot for feeding of pigeons which could be someone's balcony or neighbouring area, then also chances of attracting pigeons are increased. In such cases, you should build fencing for your area.
Chimneys: Chimneys are one of the important spots to be inspected. This is due to two reasons! The shape and position of chimney flues allow the birds to make their nests very quickly and easily. Second reason is that the place of chimney is hidden from plain sight and thus birds feel their safety and privacy. But forming nest near chimney vents is not only hazardous for you and your food but also for birds. They can catch fire from the burning stoves and thus is a major safety risk for them.
Pigeons are dirty and rough birds. They can stay in any surroundings (without even putting efforts in building a nest), eat whatever they find and believe in short term. They don't save food for rainy season unlike insects and other birds. So, it is not very difficult to notice signs of their invasion. An observation of exteriors of house and unused windows, if any should be good enough to have you started.
Harahan 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.
