If you are having a problem with wildlife in your Zachary 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 Zachary, and I recommend the following:
Wildlife X Team
Cell Phone: 225-412-2900
NOTE: If you have a dog or cat problem, call East Baton Rouge
Parish Animal Services: (225) 774-7700
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 East Baton Rouge
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 Zachary wildlife removal company. This is very different from a regular Zachary 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.
Zachary 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 Zachary 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 Zachary 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 Zachary 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 Zachary 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 Zachary pigeon removal and bird control. But our specialty is Zachary 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 Zachary trapper who only removes the critters, then the problem will return. You need to hire a Zachary 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 Zachary. 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 Zachary 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 Zachary. And remember, we are a private business, not East Baton Rouge
Parish Animal Control Services, so if you have a dog or cat problem, call the
Parish at (225) 774-7700.
East Baton Rouge Parish animal services does not handle any wildlife issues.

Zachary Wildlife Tip #1:How To Get Skunks Out Of Window Well
There is no doubt to say that skunks can cause huge damage to your property, so it is good to make efforts to keep them out of the home and landscape as well. Note that these notorious creatures are protected by state laws, so you cannot kill or harm them. It is important to look for some humane way to get rid of them. The best idea is to scare them away from the window well in your premises so that major destructions can be avoided.
Some of you might be interested to know why skunks keep on visiting your premises. Well! The biggest reason behind it is the easy availability of food on your premises. Skunks are omnivorous creatures; they can eat anything that is easily available on your premises. It can be the waste in your trash cans, the fallen fruits, nuts, and vegetables. These nocturnal animals can even feed on pet food in your habitat. Another common reason behind their visit is the availability of comfortable shelter. They need a safe space to live with their babies, and human habitat helps them to stay protected from predators. All these conditions make your premises suitable for their frequent visits.
You may find skunks in the window well at your home, but it is not always that they entered intentionally to this space. In most cases, they fall accidentally into this well and later do not find any way to come out. In actual, they are not even able to notice the presence of window well in the property until they fall into it. You may feel annoyed to see them in the window well but probably; they are also frustrated to stick inside.
The moment you notice skunks in the window well, it is important to take them out safely. In case if the window well at your property is shallow with a depth of around 2 feet, the best method to get it out is using a piece of wood. You can simply put a hard-wooden board in the well so that skunk can climb out with ease. It is the best way to get skunks out without any trouble. Some people also make use of snare pole to take skunks out of the window well.
If you live in skunk affected area, it is important to make efforts to keep them out of the window well. Make arrangements that can help skunks not even to move closer to the window well and the risk of their fall into the well can be avoided. This strategy will help you to save yourself from aggressive skunk while taking them out of the well. Otherwise, the annoyed and frustrated skunk may bite you or scratch you while coming out of the well. Note that these creatures carry lots of harmful disease viruses, so there is no point in making direct contact with their body, saliva, and blood. It is better to use preventive methods to keep them away.
Zachary 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 225-412-2900, for a price quote for Zachary wildlife control services. I am confident that this is the best choice amongst wildlife removal companies in Zachary, LA.
