If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Marrero 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 Marrero, and I recommend the following:
Xceptional Wildlife Removal
Cell Phone: 504-291-6416
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Jefferson
Parish Animal Services: (504) 349-5111
Xceptional Wildlife Removal 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 Xceptional Wildlife Removal 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 504-291-6416
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
Xceptional Wildlife Removal is a full-service Marrero wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Marrero pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Xceptional Wildlife Removal 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.
Marrero 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 Marrero raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Xceptional Wildlife Removal. 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 Marrero 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 Marrero 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 Marrero 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 Marrero pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Marrero 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 Marrero trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Marrero 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. Xceptional Wildlife Removal does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Xceptional Wildlife Removal. 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
. Xceptional Wildlife Removal
also provides dead animal removal in Marrero. 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 Marrero 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 Marrero. 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) 349-5111.
Jefferson Parish animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Marrero Wildlife Tip #1:Do all squirrels have rabies?
There are many animals that carry rabies. In regard with squirrels, they basically choose to stay in the parks and backyards all across America. Hikers and hunters come across to squirrels at all times. That is when squirrels may bite; the moment they get near to them.
Squirrels do not Carry Rabies
Squirrels do not really carry rabies. But, it is more likely that warm-blood mammals can contract rabies or carry rabies. They are a few of those animals that do not cause rabies protocol in a veterinary office, clinic or hospital. They are also recognized as benign. But, it does not guaranteed that if you were bitten by them, you'll already be free from rabies. It will be a wise decision to go to a doctor for check-up and monitoring.
Bites of Squirrels
It must be noted that squirrels that are aggressive are uncommon. Still, you may encounter a mother squirrel that is protective of its babies. A squirrel that is upset will take a few times to stare you down than run into the trees. That is why it may be hard to get bitten bite it.
Remember as well that squirrels are among the most agile and the fastest creatures in the wild forests. They can also run away from you a lot faster. They will bite you provided that you come near to them. They have already been reports made about squirrel hunters bitten. But, this is still a rare situation. You could sit next to squirrels that are walking. They may bite you. Nevertheless, they will still choose to run away.
Household Pet Bitten by a Squirrel
If a household pet is bitten by a squirrel, you need to take it to a vet. It must have already had a rabies vaccine. The role of a vet is to check for possible rabies infection. And then, the wound will be dressed by him or her. He or she could also report the incident before the wildlife authorities. It will be very necessary to report the incident. This is also for the safety of all.
If You Are Bitten
If you are bitten by a squirrel, you will need to report the situation to a clinic staff or a hospital. You need to observe how it behaves before you were bitten. You also need to report the information before the medical staff.
Marrero 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.
