If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Prairieville 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 Prairieville, and I recommend the following:
Wildlife X Team
Cell Phone: 225-412-2900
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Ascension
Parish Animal Services: 225-675-6557
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 225-412-2900
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 Ascension
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 Prairieville wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Prairieville 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.
Prairieville 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 Prairieville 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 Prairieville 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 Prairieville 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 Prairieville 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 Prairieville pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Prairieville 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 Prairieville trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Prairieville 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 Prairieville. 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 Prairieville 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 Prairieville. And remember, we are a private business, not Ascension
Parish Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the
Parish at 225-675-6557.
Ascension Parish animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Prairieville Wildlife Tip #1:Do Coyotes Make Good Pets?
Coyotes would make an absolutely swell pet for you if you didn't mind their razor-sharp teeth, their astounding tendency to be infected with deadly diseases like rabies and Tularemia, their potentially malicious dislike for smaller creatures, mostly pets, like the cat in your home and even children, their parasite infested bodies, among other nasty predominant traits which embody the coyote.
The coyote is a wild animal and therefore, it is simply not programmed for taming. These animals are programmed to follow their instincts at just about all costs, wherever, whenever and however, and therefore, there is certainly no form of confirmation to back that the coyote will not pounce on you, your pet or your kid when it feels really hungry especially in a case where the inflow of food is cut short. They also have temper tantrums at times and could really mess things up especially on matters to do with food or when they are enclosed in small confined spaces.
However, in the modern times, man has really evolved and is really making an effort to break the walls of how things are thought they are meant to be. With modern day conditioning, coyotes have been successfully made into pets. This has however happened in very few situations. The outcome of all this has however in most situations been a very large vicious wild dog chained to the backyard due to the wild nature of the coyote which simply won't go away completely.
There are various ways for achieving this that have been used. These include;
1. Getting young coyote pups from the wild- this is one of the best ways to domesticate a coyote. Coyotes that have been in the wild for long are neither easy to tame nor to even catch in the first place. This is because the natural conflict between humans and coyotes has been there since the beginning of time and these smart creatures know that they are simply no match for humans and their brains and therefore avoid humans like the plague. This makes it quite difficult to catch one. Living in the wild also makes it difficult for the coyote to learn to live with humans, since, as the saying goes, literally this time, "you really can't teach an old dog new tricks."
2. Letting the coyote mate with a dog- this is best when one has a female dog. The pup can then be domesticated more easily in comparison to a wild coyote. This is backed by the fact that the mother is already domesticated and therefore tamed life will be easy on the offspring.
A domesticated coyote has a few more problems that it brings with it, adding up to the ones already mentioned earlier in this article. These include;
1. The coyote could get used to the owner but will still have a hard time adding more humans to the list and thus will get really aggressive towards them, be it your friends, family or your neighbors.
2. In case you have another dog, conflicts will ensue, and in case they engage in a fight, the coyote will most definitely end up winning owing to its wild nature. This is not good for your dog.
3. Walks with the pet will not be the best of walks since the coyotes and humans' conflict will always come up. The pet could get killed by trigger happy humans when left alone or even attack some if at all it gets provoked.
Basically, this tells you that domesticating a coyote would really mean that you would really need to take a lot of precaution since there are so many physical dangers that this member of the wolf family poses to you, your pets, your children and the society at large. Therefore, all things considered, I think it is best that interactions between humans and coyotes be as minimal as possible. The coyotes should simply be left to stay in there wild where they are meant to be.
Prairieville 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.
