Professional Wildlife Removal Company Servicing Opelousas, LA

Opelousas Wildlife Animal Control

If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Opelousas 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 Opelousas, and I recommend the following:

Wildlife X Team
Cell Phone: 225-289-4143

NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call St. Landry Parish Animal Services: (337) 948-6184



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 225-289-4143 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 St. Landry 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 Opelousas wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Opelousas 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.

  Opelousas 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 Opelousas 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 Opelousas 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 Opelousas 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 Opelousas 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 Opelousas pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Opelousas 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 Opelousas trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Opelousas 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. 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. Wildlife X Team also provides dead animal removal in Opelousas. 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 Opelousas 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 Opelousas. And remember, we are a private business, not St. Landry Parish Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the Parish at (337) 948-6184. St. Landry Parish animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Opelousas Wildlife Tip #1:
How to use one-way exclusion funnels to remove opossums without trapping them

It's extremely hard to evacuate a possum once it has moved into your home; yet there is promise for individuals who need a lasting result without murdering them. The truth of the matter is, it's uncommon to locate a lonely possum in your home. Most often than not, you will see them pregnant or you will see them carrying their babies in their pouch. If you have figured out how to trap one, check for areolas. The odds are great there are young possums around, they cannot fight for themselves or even mature enough to enter an enclosure that have a place with her. There are various kinds of traps available for the possums, but one of which is the one-way exclusion funnels. Other kinds of traps include those listed below.

Body Grip Traps: These are a great deal like mammoth mouse traps. They are hazardous, hard to utilize and when they work they snap down on the creature and execute it by means of stifling or pounding.

Single Animal Live Cage Trap: Live pen traps are by and large metal confines. The animal is tricked in with nourishment, trips a dish or plate which closes the entryway and traps them. If you utilize a live confine trap, get one for squirrels. Too little an enclosure and the creature won't fit in, too substantial a pen and the animal will have circled and hurt itself attempting to get away.

Repeating Live Cage Trap: This is the trap the experts use. It's mounted on the gap the animals use to enter and leave the house. They have no option yet to enter the out of this world and go. A restricted entryway gives them the access, however not out. These traps can without much of a stretch, hold a few squirrels.

One-Way Exclusion Door: Professionals assert this is the best strategy for expelling possums from the upper rooms. It resembles a rehashing live enclosure trap, however, as opposed to catching them, it just disables them from returning once they take off. The animals will even now be on your property, however not in your storage room. Be cautious if you have mother possums that they don't have babies inside they can't get to.

There's a whole other world to getting a possum than essentially putting out a trap. Indeed, even the experts experience difficulty getting the possums So in the event that you aren't having any luck, there's no disgrace to calling a specialist. If you are sufficiently fortunate to trap a live animal and you need to move it, know that migrating possums are unlawful. In case you're not stressed over the law and need to move the creatures at any rate, move them no less than 5 to 10 miles away. Like most creatures, they're great at discovering their way back home.

Opelousas 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.

You can always call Wildlife X Team, any time of day, at 225-289-4143, for a price quote for Opelousas wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Opelousas, LA.
