Typical Wildlife Issues in Northern Arizona
Homeowners may discover squirrels and other rodents in their living spaces, along with damage caused by the pests' behavior and waste.
Both ground- and tree-dwelling varieties commonly damage property. Tree squirrels often break intoattics or build nests in gutters. Ground squirrels burrow in lawns and gardens, ruining tidy landscaping.
To effective remove squirrels, the wildlife technician will employ a variety of tactics such as live trapping, one-way doors, deterrents, and direct capture.
Rat and Mice Pest Control
Rats and mice are among the adaptable mammals and can inhabitat almost any environment. Rats and mice are typical pest animals in a home. Proximity to water and buildings with plenty of entry holes allow the pests to travel freely and breed rapidly. In homes, a mouse or rat may contaminate food with waste, spread disease, and destroy property.
To effectively get rid of rats and mice you need to control the population. Female rats can have six litters in one year. The wildlife technician will determine the best type of trap, placement of trap, and the best bait to use.
The standard trapping duration is normally 5-14 days. It is essential to repair entry points and reinforce potential entry points to keep rats out.
The dry, desert climate of Northern Arizona makes any neighborhood the ideal place for a raccoon. This nocturnal pest often scours trash cans and gardens for food and water. During mating season in Flagstaff, raccoons search out nesting sites to raise their young. These pests frequently dig under sheds or climb into chimneys and attic.
Even when it does not have pups to defend, an adult raccoon will still bite if threatened. As a result, approaching these animals is dangerous at any time of year.
Live trapping is the most common removal technique and exclusion techniques include securing food sources and closing any entry points.
Bats in Arizona
There are several bat species common to northern Arizona. These pests enter attics through gaps in roofs or eaves. Bats will live in homes when roosting sites in their natural habitats are scarce.
These animals create serious issues for Arizona residents when they enter attics. In addition to being rabies carriers, bats spread histoplasmosis through airborne spores in their droppings. Bat guano buildup beneath a roost also causes foul odors and stains.
In recent years, skunks in Flagstaff, AZ, have been at the center of rabies outbreaks in urban and suburban areas. These pests are scavengers that eat carrion, including the carcasses of rabid bats. Once it contracts the virus, a skunk can spread rabies to other wildlife, pets, and even humans.
Flagstaff neighborhoods offer both food and shelter for these animals, bringing them in close proximity to homes and yards. Rabies spreads quickly when healthy and infected skunks den in the same areas or compete for resources.
While generally harmless to people, pocket gophers dig in Flagstaff and Prescott lawns to search for meals. These animals often eat plant roots as they burrow, harming trees and crops along the way. A pocket gopher may also create costly damage by chewing on sprinklers and plastic water lines.
Woodpeckers bring several issues to Verde Valley residents when they peck into homes and barns to nest. Their activity can cause damage to siding, trim, eaves, and sometimes roofs. The loud noise of a woodpecker drumming away during the early morning hours may also annoy Northern Arizona homeowners.
To avoid a skunk’s spray rely on professional handling and skunk trapping. Removing food supplies is one of the most effective ways to prevent a skunk from entering your property.
