What are wildlife?

Wildlife is a broad term for the many different pests that can live on your property and even get inside. Some of the most common types of wildlife that cause problems on residential properties include the following:

  • Raccoons¬†
  • Opossums
  • Skunks
  • Tree Squirrels
  • Bats
  • Birds

For each of these pests, requesting assistance from a residential pest control provider in Beaumont is always best for getting them out of your home.

Are wildlife dangerous?

All of the wildlife pests we listed above can be very dangerous. You might be wondering how birds and squirrels can be dangerous if they are always near your home. Birds can spread various diseases and contaminate surfaces with feces.

It's often forgotten that squirrels are rodents and can cause the same problems as mice and rats. These problems include property damage due to chewing and spreading diseases like rabies, tularemia, salmonellosis, and leptospirosis. They can also spread parasites like fleas and ticks.

As for the rest of the pests listed above, raccoons, opossums, and skunks are not only responsible for spreading diseases, but they can also attack if they feel threatened. Raccoons, skunks, and bats are all carriers of rabies. And like birds, bats can cause contamination with their waste, which is called guano.

Why do I have a wildlife problem?

The shortest answer to why you have a wildlife problem on your property is that it offers them access to food. These wildlife pests have learned that people provide an abundance of resources, and they are not shy about taking any opportunity they can.

Food sources for these pests can include:

  • Garbage bins that are easy to knock over and get into
  • Compost piles
  • Gardens and the insects that live in them
  • Trees that produce fruits and nuts
  • Bird feeders can drop seeds to the ground where other animals can get them

Where will I find wildlife?

Squirrels typically build their nests in trees, but they can find their way into a home, usually through the roofline. They will build nests in attics and even inside walls when this happens.
