If you are having a problem with wildlife in your LaPlace 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 LaPlace, 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 St. John the Baptist
Parish Animal Services: (985) 651-7387
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:

Parish licensed and insured

- Performs exclusion repairs, with guarantee against animal re-entry
- Offers cleanup of biohazardous wildlife waste
Urban Jungle Wildlife Removal, LLC is a full-service LaPlace wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular LaPlace 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.
LaPlace 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 LaPlace 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 LaPlace 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 LaPlace 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 LaPlace 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 LaPlace pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is LaPlace 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 LaPlace trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a LaPlace 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 LaPlace. 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 LaPlace 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 LaPlace. And remember, we are a private business, not St. John the Baptist
Parish Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the
Parish at (985) 651-7387.
St. John the Baptist Parish animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

LaPlace Wildlife Tip #1:Do mothballs or ammonia help repel skunks?
If you live in a place where there are lots of skunks, then you will also do anything just to get rid of them. These creatures are considered pests, since they can occupy your property and they can emit a foul odor that will linger in your house for more than 6 months. They can also ruin your vegetation when they find food. They will also create a mess when they look for food in the garbage bin. Enabling them to stay in your property for a long time will make them used to it and they will breed and multiply, thus it will be harder for you to get rid of them. Skunks are hard to catch, because of their foul odor spray. You must get rid of the at the onset of infestation and don't wait for them to multiply. Don't give them the chance to make your home awful. The animals are often persuaded to stay in a place if there is an easy access to food and water around.
Most of the homeowners try to use ammonia or mothballs to repel them, well they may be off with the smell, but mind you, their spray is more awful than the smell of these 2, when they get used to them, they will not go away. You will just waste your time and money in buying them, because they will not be useful along the way. But of course, you can always try, you can scatter them around the yard and in places where they are always seen. It is just that there is a problem, the chemicals might affect your other domestic pets or small kids. Because of this, you must be careful in handling them, since they are highly toxic. You can also use the freshly squeezed orange juice when you drink it in the morning or in the late afternoon. Most of the wildlife animals do not like the smell of the oranges or any other citrus fruits.
You can use this to your benefit and spread the fruit peels around your yard or where you often see these creatures. But be careful, because when they sense your presence, they will think that you are a predator and they may emit the foul smell, which you do not want them to do. You can also use the cayenne pepper to scatter them at the entrance of the hole, this may be a good one which is also natural and toxic free for humans. If there is a dog, then you can let it out, but this is not suggested, since the spray of the skunk may affect the eyes of the dog and the dog will be smelly if the skunk will emit the spray on him.
LaPlace 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.
