Wildlife Problems in Alabaster, AL

Urban pests often move from Birmingham into the nearby suburb of Alabaster, AL, to look for food and shelter. With the city's varied terrain, warm climate, and access to water, animals find plenty of reasons to stick around.

Hungry Squirrels

Able to adapt to habitats near people, squirrels flourish across Alabama. Residents frequently spot the state's most common species, the gray squirrel, around bird feeders and gardens. These pests like to steal nuts, seeds, or fruits and bury them in small caches throughout lawns.

Bat Trouble

As Alabaster continues to grow, new building projects displace bats from their homes. On the search for places to live, they sometimes roost in attics and chimneys. When they exit a house to hunt and return to rest, these animals leave behind bat guano that can attract other pests and stain siding.

Raccoons and Disease

Raccoons prefer to live close to water, so the Cahaba and Coosa Rivers make Alabaster seem like an ideal home. However, the pests raise health concerns when they den under porches or in attics. Raccoons in Alabama may carry viruses or parasites that can infect people, such as rabies and roundworm.

More Wildlife Issues

Alabaster is partly located in Opossum Valley, a region named for a local pest. Opossums scavenge for insects and scraps in yards. Though the nuisances don't stay in one place long, they will raid gardens or trash if food is scarce.

With Alabaster's warm weather and frequent flooding, residents often come into contact with snakes. While most species found on lawns are harmless, flood waters or rodent problems may also bring venomous copperheads, cottonmouths, and timber rattlesnakes into the open.
