If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Ridgeland home, your best option is to hire a company that specializes in Mississippi 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 Ridgeland, and I recommend the following:
Critter Capture, LLC
Cell Phone: 601-910-6687
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call Madison County Animal Services: (601) 856-2121
Critter Capture, LLC specializes primarily in removing animals from attics of homes and buildings - this includes squirrels in attics, raccoons, and rats
or mice in homes. Mississippi also has a documented problem with
bats in buildings, and Critter Capture, 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 601-910-6687
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 Mississippi and Madison County 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
Critter Capture, LLC is a full-service Ridgeland wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Ridgeland pest control company. The pest control companies spray poison to kill insects. This is not at all
similar to wildlife removal. Critter Capture, 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.
Ridgeland wildlife trapping - it's not as simple as it may seem. It's illegal in Mississippi 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 Mississippi law. We offer Ridgeland raccoon removal. Read more about how to get rid of raccoons.
Animals in attics - this is our specialty at Critter Capture, 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 Ridgeland 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 Ridgeland 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 Ridgeland rat removal. Read more about how to get rid of rats.
Bat removal is a highly specialized task. Mississippi 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 Ridgeland pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Ridgeland 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 Ridgeland trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Ridgeland 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. Critter Capture, LLC does both.
The above are just some of the services offered by Critter Capture, 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
. Critter Capture, LLC
also provides dead animal removal in Ridgeland. 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 Ridgeland snake removal - most of the snakes in Mississippi are not venomous, but
call us if you want safe removal, or read about how to get rid of snakes
in Ridgeland. And remember, we are a private business, not Madison County Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the County at (601) 856-2121.

Ridgeland Wildlife Tip #1:How To Keep Opossums Out Of My Garden
If you live in opossum affected area, these creatures may often attack your yard and garden in search of food and shelter. Most homeowners in the United States are suffering troubles due to these creatures and want to know a permanent solution to get rid of them. The sad truth is that possums not only raid vegetation and fruits in the premises, rather at the same time they also cause huge damage to buildings as well by building nests in the attic or deck area. Moreover, possums also carry several disease viruses that can get transferred to humans around. Before you take steps to scare these animals away from your property, it is better to know what attracts them to your premises; so, that you can eliminate that root cause to get rid of all the troubles.
Note that possums are omnivorous creatures; it means they can live on anything that is easily available around. When they live in wild areas, they keep on targeting other animals such as frogs, fishes and even some varieties of snakes as well; but when they adopt the urban environment, they start running behind vegetables, fruits, and treats available in the trashcan of the garden. They can also get attracted toward pet food or carcass of any other rodent or animal around your property. Hence, the best idea to get rid of possums is to keep your garden and yard free of foodstuff. Secondly, you need to cut off all the unwanted bushes and tree branches that may provide shelter to possums. Possums should not feel comfortable in your garden, and it is possible only if he doesn't get a place to hide. These animals don't like to expose, and if your garden does not allow them to enjoy a disturbance-free shelter, they will definitely run away.
If possums have already entered your garden and you need some method to scare them away, the best idea is to use exclusion methods. First of all, you can use some repellents or deterrents to scare these animals away from your premises, and once they are gone, you can install fences around your property. It is better to extend the fences 3 to 4 feet above as well as below the ground. You can easily find a variety of exclusion wires in the local market; they are generally made up of concrete, hardwood or stainless steel. Never ever try to install softwood material like that can be easily eaten up by these animals. Another useful solution can be setting traps in the garden. Prefer to use non-lethal traps that do not cause any harm to these animals. You can simply capture them and then release them at some far location. However, it is better to take help from professional animal removal company because these animals often get aggressive in the cage and may bite if you don't have the experience to handle them. Once they are out of your property, block all the entry points to ensure safety for future.
Ridgeland Wildlife Tip #2:
Mississippi Wildlife Information:
Mississippi State bird: Northern mockingbird
State mammal: White-tailed deer
State reptile: American alligator
State fish: Largemouth bass
State insect: European honeybee
Mississippi, named after the Mississippi River, is a place of flat land and gradual hills. The majority of the state is heavily forested, and the mountain ranges within are actually better classified as foothills. Numerous large river systems run through the region, but the Mississippi River is by far the largest. Lakes and wetlands can be found in almost every corner of the region, supplying the animals and plants with the water needed to survive in the constant heat. The summers are long, hot and humid, and the cooler winter weeks are short compared to other states in the nation. Hurricanes are a concern for residents of Mississippi; the state is prone to violent weather coming up the Gulf of Mexico.
Canoodling, or the art of using your finger as bait for catfish, is a popular pastime in the state. Though locals have caught impressive catfish using just their hands, it is the commercial catfish aquaculture that supplies the United States with the bulk of catfish consumed annually. Catfish are also a tasty treat for one of the state's most populous animals-the American alligator. Alligators are at home in the large river systems of Mississippi. Plenty of large aquatic life exists to keep the reptiles well-fed. Other semi-aquatic creatures are nutria, muskrats and river otters.
The heavy forestation means most people in Mississippi live near trees. This close contact with nature also means the inevitable clash between humans and nuisance wildlife. The state has raccoons, opossums, rats, mice, striped skunks, spotted skunks, flying squirrels, grey squirrels, fox squirrels, rabbits, and armadillos.
For predators, the small animals are most wary of bobcats and coyotes, though both mountain lions and black bears can feed on the smaller critters. For the most part, black bears in Mississippi can find enough food in the way of seeds, berries and insects to avoid having to actively hunt. There are not many grazing animals in Mississippi, likely due to the low elevation and hot climate. White-tailed deer are the most common hooved-wildlife species seen.
With such a warm climate, the state is home to many different types of bats. These animals can make their homes anywhere, often choosing a cave, hollowed tree, or the attic of an unsuspecting homeowner.
