Common Types Of Wildlife That Invade Alabama Properties

There are many types of wild animals that might invade your Alabama property. The most common invasive species are raccoons, squirrels, skunks, opossums, mice, rats, and wasps. All of these local pests like to nest near homes for various reasons. All wildlife are not, however, created equal. Mice and rats will not just settle on your property but will also invade living areas if given a chance. Raccoons, skunks, and opossums will take shelter under porches, clutter, and inside outbuildings. Wasps like to build their nests higher up inside trees, on the side of buildings, and inside abandoned structures. To identify what types of wildlife are on your property, bring in our team for a quick inspection.

The Dangers Nuisance Wildlife Brings

Before we talk about wildlife removal and other wildlife pest control options, we think it is important that you know why wild animals are a problem. Most furry pests carry fleas and ticks. These small parasitic bugs climb off into outbuildings, porches, and sometimes even find their way into homes. Mice and rats carry diseases inside and on their bodies that can threaten residents of the buildings they invade. Pests like wasps and bees have painful stingers, which they use to scare off potential threats to their nests. They can section off areas of your yard with their aggressive and protective behaviors. Finally, skunks spray people and animals. This spray, as you might know, smells awful and can cause corneal damage, skin irritation, and other minor medical problems.
