Many of Louisiana's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Louisiana's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

New Orleans Wildlife Removal Tip: The Biology Of The Mexican Freetail Bat

Despite its name this bat has actually become the official state bat of both Oklahoma and Texas, but the most common depiction of the species is actually found on the label of the Bacardi rum bottles. The volume of numbers of the bats in North America means that this species is often considered to be one of the most abundant animal species on the continent.


The distinctive long tail of the bat is one of its most interesting features for those that can see the bats up close, while their small bodies are usually covered in fur that ranges between dark brown and gray. This species of bat has particularly narrow wings, although one of the key identifying features is that these bats are often found in groups of thousands or tens of thousands.


When they are fully grown, these bats are usually around three and a half inches in length, and weigh in at under half an ounce. Because of their need to fly in straight patterns, the bats have developed the narrow wings with pointed tips, which help them to achieve this particular flying pattern.

Life Cycle

Because of their vulnerability to pesticides and other flying predators, the life span of these bats is shorter than some other species, with bats living to eight years old among the elder examples in the colony. The mating period is usually during the winter, with the young usually born in the late spring, and by seven weeks old they are juveniles that have already been fully weaned.


The Mexican Freetail Bat will usually prefer large roosting spots that can accommodate a large number of the animals, and these can range from large caves to man made structures with covered areas. One of the most famous roosting spots is beneath the Congress Avenue Bridge in Austin, where people gather to see the bats flying out from under the bridge at dusk.


Insects are the sole food source for these bats, and they will usually eat a variety of species of flies and other airborne insects. One of the interesting features of their hunting habits is that they will actually send out a sound that jams the echolocation of other bat species to ensure they have the best chance of getting to their prey.


Mexican Freetail Bats are most famous for being animals that fly in groups, and they also roost together in large colonies that can be tens of thousands or even up to hundreds of thousands for the largest colonies. These become smaller after the females give birth, when the females take their young to separate maternity colonies.

New Orleans Animal News Clip: Public invited to weigh in on squirrel plan

New Orleans - Another squirrel rodent capture is planned in the Orleans Parish Parish wildlife management areas starting during the fall in the same areas that were open during the past wildlife management season. The Parish wildlife management area system released some sort of report earlier this month that recommended changes in the wildlife management season calendar in accordance with state guidelines, but it does not recommend opening any new wildlife management areas for wildlife management. The Board of Recreation Wild animal commissioners will accept public comments on the report Monday night. The board is expected to vote June 5 on whether to accept the report and authorize another rodent capture, said Groundhog Bill, spokeswoman for the wildlife management areas. New Orleans extermination and trapping officials had nothing to say about this.

Portions of 11 wildlife management areas were opened to squirrel wildlife management for the 2005-06 season that started in September. The dates and documentation that allows animal permitted wildlife management methods vary in each wildlife management area. Fewer documentation that allows animal exterminations were issued to exterminating companies for the past wildlife management season compared with the previous year, but more squirrel were killed, Groundhog Bill announced. The wildlife management area system issued 706 documentation that allows animal exterminations to exterminating companies for the 2005-06 season, Groundhog Bill announced. During the previous wildlife management season, the first allowed in the Parish wildlife management areas, 647 documentation that allows animal exterminations were issued. Exterminating companies killed 416 squirrel during the most recent rodent capture, according to the wildlife management area system's annual report on the season. During the 2004-05 wildlife management season, 407 squirrel were killed. To learn more about animal control in New Orleans, Louisiana read on.

The squirrel exact number of rodents grows about 40 percent some sort of year without any management plan, according to information from the Parish wildlife management area system. "The goal is to decrease the ecological impact on the forest that one species is having," Groundhog Bill announced. "squirrel are eating the plants that are providing homes to the bugs that the birds eat. It has some sort of snowball effect as we go along." Areas in nine Parish wildlife management areas opened for the first time during the 2004-05 squirrel season to exterminating companies and was expanded to include portions of two additional wildlife management areas the following year. New Orleans pest control and exterminator companies agreed with this.

The latest report recommends some changes in the wildlife management season at various wildlife management areas. Critter trapper participation and harvest numbers were extremely low at Rodent Wrangler Ronon wildlife management area in Upper Freehold for two years in some sort of row, according to the wildlife management area system's annual report on the rodent capture. As some sort of result, the report recommends allowing wildlife management during the six-day firearm season in December, instead of two weeks in January. The wildlife management area will be closed to other uses during the rodent capture. The New Orleans animal services in Orleans Parish Parish declined to comment.
