Wildlife Pests in Avondale

The desert climate and limited rainfall of Avondale, AZ, can create harsh conditions for animals. Nuisances like squirrels, bats, and raccoons often find the best access to resources when they move into neighborhoods. Especially during times of drought, residents may see wildlife pests in yards and homes.

Ground Squirrel Trouble

Ground squirrels favor flat, sandy soil for digging burrows, so Avondale makes an ideal habitat. The pests' holes and tunnels can stretch to three feet deep, potentially harming plants and building foundations. Since a ground squirrel eats fruit, flowers, and grass, lawns and gardens are at risk for damage from an infestation.

Bats in the House

Arizona bats typically roost close to food and water sources. Lawns provide both, which may lead to encounters with people. The pests can enter a house through small openings, including damaged roofing, vents, or fascia. Once indoors, large colonies produce odor and noise problems. A bat issue is also dangerous as the animal is a vector for rabies.

Raccoons near People

Due to Avondale's river access and growing residential areas, raccoons are a familiar nuisance. Outdoors, these pests will root through trash, dig in yards for insects, and hunt fish in ponds. The animals may also tear off siding or shingles to reach attics. A raccoon den inside can result in ceiling, insulation, and other property damage.

More Avondale Wildlife

Partial to warm climates, rats inhabit most of Arizona. They pollute stored food with droppings, urine, and saliva, resulting in serious health risks to homeowners. Eating products that contain rat waste can bring about illnesses such as salmonellosis.

Pigeons are scavengers that thrive in cities, including Avondale. The most common issue with these birds is their poop, which smells foul and stains roofs and siding. Large pigeon flocks frequently annoy residents by making loud noises.
