Common Wildlife Problems in West Palm Beach, FL

The subtropical climate and diverse geography of West Palm Beach, FL, attracts a unique population of pests. Alligators and armadillos are found in abundance and create dangers with their aggression and habit of digging up gardens, respectively. Other, more common pest critters include raccoon, skunks, snakes, and opossums. These nuisances get inside homes, contaminate foodstuffs, and transmit diseases. Finally, the area is home to several species of rare and endangered birds. West Palm Beach residents may encounter bald eagles, seaside sparrows, and wood storks, which can be a pain to remove from private properties without violating state or federal laws.


Adaptable to many conditions, raccoon regularly steal food from trash cans and travel through yards in West Palm Beach. These pests often live near or even inside homes and garages, which increases the risk of an encounter. Since some Florida raccoons carry rabies, a bite can be serious.


A common West Palm Beach nuisance, Squirrels chew tree bark and dig up garden plants. Though these behaviors annoy homeowners, the animals pose dangers as well. When a squirrel invades a home, it can gnaw on wiring, causing a fire hazard.


Broken vents and gaps in roofing allow Bats into Florida attics. The pests sometimes transmit rabies, and their droppings can encourage harmful mold to grow indoors. To make matters worse, feces crumbles when dry, making it easy to inhale disease-causing spores.

Harmless garter and rat snakes also frequent local yards and gardens. Whether its venom is deadly or not, any of these species can deliver a painful bite.
