Wildlife Pests in Apache Junction

Along with the rest of the Phoenix East Valley area, the desert city of Apache Junction, AZ, is growing steadily. When construction takes over wildlife habitats, residents may spot raccoonssquirrels, and bats on their lawns. Looking for resources and trying to adapt to changing conditions, these pests will enter yards or even homes.

Hungry Raccoons

Once raccoons locate a food source, they tend to return frequently. As a result, pests that find open trash cans and outdoor pet food in Apache Junction yards may decide to den under decks or in attics and sheds. Since the animals can contaminate soil and water with raccoon roundworm eggs via their waste, an infestation is a health and safety issue.

Burrowing Squirrels

Rock squirrels in Arizona often live in burrows under structures like sheds or garages. Their digging may create tripping hazards and damage foundations or sidewalks. A squirrel can also destroy landscaping plants and gardens while searching for and storing food.

Bats and Rabies

Because of the state’s warm weather, bats thrive in Apache Junction. These pests will roost in attics if other places, such as caves, are unavailable. Because the bat is a rabies vector in Arizona, homeowners shouldn’t wait to seek help with indoor colonies. People and pets can contract this disease through the bites or scratches of an infected animal.

Other Wildlife in Apache Junction

Residents sometimes deal with predators, like coyotes and snakes. Fallen fruit, small prey, and garbage can draw a coyote near the house in search of a meal. Though they rarely bite people, these animals may hunt pets or livestock.

Snake encounters around Apache Junction homes can be dangerous as well. Able to squeeze through holes in fences and hide in tall grasses or under debris, the pests are hard to deter. Depending on the species, a snake bite could provoke serious medical problems.
