If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Houma 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 Houma, and I recommend the following:
Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC
Cell Phone: 985-231-5705
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Terrebonne
Parish Animal Services: (985) 873-6709
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 985-231-5705
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 Terrebonne
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 Houma wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Houma 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.
Houma 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 Houma 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 Houma 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 Houma 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 Houma 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 Houma pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Houma 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 Houma trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Houma 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.

. 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 Houma. 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 Houma 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 Houma. And remember, we are a private business, not Terrebonne
Parish Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the
Parish at (985) 873-6709.
Terrebonne Parish animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Houma Wildlife Tip #1:All about the opossum tail, and what it is used for
The possums are known to be little critters and scavengers, since they are always seen in the garbage. There are lots of things that you must know about them that will make you amazed and surprised. They have a natural immunity. Possums are typically immune to rabies and they are eight times likely to carry rabies than wild animals like dogs. They are omnivores galore. They have a typical diet that contains rodents and dead animals. They can also eat frogs, fruits, grains and plants. They can also eat human food, dog and cat food and others. They have the need for a high calcium diet which makes them eat rodents and their skeletons as well. They are the sanitation workers of the wild and so do in the suburbs, since they eat the human wastes.
They are wise critters. Even if a lot of people think that they are not the best to steal something in the kitchen drawer, there are lots of areas wherein they are good. They have the capacity to seek for food and to keep it in. Whey their ability is tested to remember where the food is, the possums scored better than the rats, cats, dogs and others, however they are not like humans. They can also find their way, even amidst a maze more than cats or rats.
They have good tails. Their Tails are very impressive because they have the capacity to adjust to things that must be clasps and they can wrap them around the tree limbs. They can hang from the tails for a short period of time, but they will not sleep in that position as others think they could. They have been carrying lots of grass through their tails, they do this by forming a loop and that leads the people to consider their tail as a powerful asset just like the human hands.
They are beneficial to the ecosystem. Because their diet enables them to indulge on snails, beetles and others, they are very much welcome to the garden of most homeowners. They also keep the rats out of the garden and they also eat cockroaches and rats as well.
They have a natural defense. They can growl, pee and belch as well when they are threatened, but if they fail, they will play their masterpiece which is playing dead. It is their voluntary way of responding to something. It is just like fainting in humans where they will act as dead. It is their way of responding to a situation that they know they cannot deal with. They roll over and turns stiff, they close their eyes or they stare into something and they drool and it flows around the mouth. They also secrete an odor from their anus as the smell of a rotting animal.
Houma 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.
