Wildlife Problems in Ft. Lauderdale, FL
Located in the heart of the peninsula, Ft. Lauderdale, FL, remains humid year-round. The city has two distinct seasons, dry and wet,with the latter lasting much longer. The near-constant rainfall often pushes wildlife to take shelter in neighborhoods.
Bats and Humidity
Bats are a vital part of Florida's ecosystem. Moisture in the air helps insects thrive, providing species with a never-ending buffet. As a result, colonies grow quite large, which is a problem when the pests roost inside homes, leave bat poop to collect in attic, and contribute to the spread of rabies.
Fort Lauderdale Raccoons
Raccoons like to live close to water, so the many canals of Fort Lauderdale attract these pests. The animals are a nuisance in yards, tipping over trash cans and disturbing gardens. Mother raccoons may also break into attics and crawl spaces to raise their young. Raccoons in Fort Lauderdale homes pose a health risk, as they can carry parasites and transmit diseases such as rabies.
Squirrels in the Home
The most common squirrels species in Florida, the eastern gray squirrel typically nests in tree hollows. However, these rodents sometimes seek the safe, temperature-controlled paradise of a home. Squirrels in attic rip up insulation, gnaw on wiring, and bring parasites and disease indoors.
More Ft. Lauderdale Nuisances
Opossums and house sparrows also cause problems for Florida residents. Like the raccoon, a female opossum views the area under a deck as an ideal den. Pets often come in conflict with these animals when they get too close.
House Sparrow nests can start fires, particularly when the birds choose to build inside chimneys. Similar to squirrels, they also carry parasites, mites, and other pests indoors with them.
