Catalina Foothills, AZ, is located near the Pima Canyon, which makes residents susceptible to bobcat encounters. These pests wander onto lawns looking for prey such as house cats, rabbits, and poultry. When bobcats hunt so close to homes, residents are put at risk of attack and injury. Bats are also common in the area. These pests nest in large groups in attics, chimneys, sheds, and other dark, sheltered places. They bite when they are freighted and contribute to the spread of serious diseases like rabies and histoplasmosis.
