Wildlife Pests in Prescott

Raccoons in the Mountains

Droughts in Prescott, AZ, force raccoons to hunt near homes for water. The pests regularly overturn garbage cans and damage rainwater barrels in their search. While raccoon populations in Arizona are rarely rabid, the animals can transmit other diseases through their bites, scratches, and waste.

Bats in the Desert

Bat colonies flourish in remote deserts as well as populated areas like Prescott. They feed mostly on insects during the night and seek out roosting sites throughout the year. A well-maintained house with latched windows deters the pests from nesting in attics and lofts, though even tiny holes in vents or roofing can allow entry.

Squirrel Pests

Nuisance squirrels in the Prescott area bother residents who enjoy gardening. The rodents raid yards looking for nuts and seeds. As seasons change, a squirrel may store food in gutters and attics or under porches. These food caches may attract other wildlife or block drainage.

Dangerous Snakes in Arizona

Rattlesnakes are no strangers to the desert climate of Prescott, AZ. Two local species are the black-tailed and western diamondback rattlesnakes. These pests move and hunt more often from March until October. On hot days, they only come out at night. However, in mild conditions, residents may see them active during the day.

Both black-tailed and western diamondback rattlesnakes hunt small prey, like rats and squirrels, which may live in yards. They have hollow fangs that can inject venom into prey, predators, and humans alike. While these snakes are generally docile, they will attack if threatened.

Prescott Predators and Roof Rats

Rattlesnakes sometimes hunt in Prescott neighborhoods in search of roof rats. Fruit trees, bird feeders, unsecured garbage, pet food, and dog waste all attract rodents to homes and yards. In addition to attracting snakes, foxes, and other predators, a roof rat infestation can be dangerous due to the threat of diseases and parasites.
