Frequently Asked Questions About Nuisance Wildlife

What is nuisance wildlife?

Nuisance wildlife is wildlife that we commonly see around human structures that becomes problematic when they infest certain structures and become widespread. Around our area, the most troublesome nuisance wildlife we deal with includes gray squirrels, red squirrels, flying squirrels, raccoons, and skunks.

Fortunately, these critters are fairly distinctive, and you may easily be able to identify the wildlife on your property. If you need more assistance with wildlife identification, contact a wildlife expert at ProfExt Pest Control for assistance.

Is nuisance wildlife dangerous?

Nuisance wildlife can be dangerous, as these pests can carry serious illnesses such as rabies, tularemia, and ringworm. Bites and scratches from wildlife you encounter around your property may result in severe health problems, or they may trigger allergic reactions. Skunk spray is especially difficult to deal with and may cause skin irritation if an individual is hit directly with this foul-smelling liquid.

Additionally, nuisance wildlife will leave their droppings and urine around your property. These contribute further to the spread of diseases, and any fleas, ticks, and mites wildlife introduce to your property may cause additional health problems.

Reliable wildlife removal is the only way to avoid these dangers.

Why do I have a nuisance wildlife problem?

Nuisance wildlife, like many other pests, tend to be opportunistic. If your property offers plenty of food, water, and sheltering spaces within easy reach, you are more likely to pick up a nuisance wildlife problem. Unguarded trash cans and compost piles, accessible pet food, piles of debris and long grasses, and leaks around your property all encourage wildlife to make their homes around your structure.

Where will I find nuisance wildlife?

Nuisance wildlife is typically found hiding around outdoor or indoor areas, generally in quiet or dark spaces and close to food. You may find them outdoors in trees that surround your property, hiding in abandoned animal dens or holes in the ground, or underneath outbuildings, porches, or around dumpsters or trash cans. If they manage to get inside, nuisance wildlife is commonly found in basements, attics, garages, or at the backs of closets and storage spaces.
