Pest & Wildlife Pressure in Gulf Shores

Rodents in Gulf Shores

The warm weather of Gulf Shores, AL, makes it a year-round target for squirrels and rats. Areas prone to hurricanes and flooding are also more vulnerable to rodent-borne diseases, especially in the aftermath of a storm.

Squirrel Problems

Squirrels in Alabama may not seem like dangerous pests. However, these rodents are difficult to evict after they move in. The pests enter homes by chewing through roof shingles and walls tonest in attics. Once inside, a squirrel can tear up insulation and gnaw on wiring, creating fire hazards.

Rat Issues

Other rodents that come into regular conflict with humans are roof rats and Norway rats. Rats and squirrels in Gulf Shores cause similar problems, but rats tend to do more structural damage. These rodents spread many of the same diseases, like salmonellosis and leptospirosis. They can also host plague-carrying fleas and other harmful parasites.
