If you are having a problem with wildlife in your New Iberia 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 New Iberia, and I recommend the following:
Wildlife X Team
Cell Phone: 225-367-2535
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Iberia
Parish Animal Services: (337) 364-6311
Wildlife X Team 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 Wildlife X Team 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 225-367-2535
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 Iberia
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
Wildlife X Team is a full-service New Iberia wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular New Iberia pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Wildlife X Team 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.
New Iberia 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 New Iberia raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Wildlife X Team. 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 New Iberia 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 New Iberia 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 New Iberia 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 New Iberia pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is New Iberia 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 New Iberia trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a New Iberia 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. Wildlife X Team does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Wildlife X Team. 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.

in New Iberia. And remember, we are a private business, not Iberia

New Iberia Wildlife Tip #1:About skunks: Appearance, biology, life cycle, habitat, diet, behavior
Skunks possess a black body with white marks. They have short and wavy hair that makes them feel warm all the time while their long straight hair keeps them dry all the time. There are 4 types of skunks to this day, these are the striped, spotted, hog nosed and the hooded. The striped skunks are similar to the size of the cats, while the hooded skunks have longer tails, much longer than their bodies. They also have curved claws, which are meant for digging. When you have seen them wandering around, you will see them using their claws to climb up the trees.
The skunks live in the dens, hollow part of the trees and in some fallen tree branches. They have found haven in the mountains, woods and in the deserts. During winter time, they make themselves warm underground in their burrows. They line the burrows with leaves and grass. Their burrows have around 2-5 doorways in case of a possible risk. When winter comes, they may share their dens with the other animals like the raccoons as well as the rabbits. They sleep most of the time during winter. These are often found in the Northern part of America, Central America and in some parts of South America.
The skunks are nocturnal animals and they look for their food amidst the dark. They look for food at night and they are asleep at daytime. They eat beetles, crickets, grasshoppers, wasps and others. They can also eat the worms, snails, leaves, fruits, nuts and bird eggs.
The baby skunk is called a kit. The kits are nourished and taken care by their mom and they are typically born in May. The mom skunks might have one to more than 7 kits at one time. The kits typically weigh as heavy as a marshmallow. They have 1-2 families yearly. They are given milk by their mom until their 6th week of life. They will stay with their mom until then.
Skunks are known for their smelly oil. They use this to secure their kits from the predators. They smell of the oil is made by their glands under the tail. Their goal is to hit the target even if it is more than 5 meters away. It can spray more than 8 times and then the glands must come up with more oil, but that will be for a few days. The smell of the oil is too strong to resist and it can sting the eyes of the target, this is the reason why most of the animals in the wild leave the skunks alone. They have the capacity to protect themselves in the simplest way possible.
New Iberia 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.
