Wildlife Problems in Birmingham, AL
With hot summers and mild winters, Birmingham, AL, supports pests all year long. The city is also the most populous in the state, which leads to issues with animals that have learned to thrive around people.
Squirrels in Alabama
Squirrels are so common in Birmingham backyards that many homeowners barely give them a second thought. However, the pests can be quite destructive. Outdoors, a squirrel may chew on tree bark and garden bulbs, harming plants. To get indoors, these rodents put their tough teeth to work by gnawing at any existing holes or gaps.
Bats in the Attic
Though they prefer to roost in natural locations, bats sometimes find their way indoors. They nest in remote areas, such as attics, but their presence can still pose a danger to residents. Bat guano often fosters the growth of a disease-causing fungus. Mold spores may become airborne when people disrupt a bat colony or attempt to clean.
Rabies may be the biggest problem linked to raccoons, but it is far from the only one. These pests dig through trash cans, feed in gardens, and roll up grass sod. A raccoon can also get into fights with outdoor dogs or cats, leading to pet encounters or disease transmission.
Other Nuisance Wildlife in Birmingham
Because rats are small, they can fit through narrow openings to enter houses. Homeowners in Alabama may have trouble with roof rats or Norway rats, both of which can contaminate food and leave droppings all over living spaces. A similar rodent, the vole, damages lawns, leaving unsightly runways and burrows that kill grass.
