Wildlife Problems in Cape Coral

Thanks to its location on the Gulf of Mexico, Cape Coral, FL, hosts a variety of wildlife pests. The city's warm climate and extensive waterways draw animals with the promise of meals and shelter. Residents encounter nuisances like squirrels, raccoons, and bats.

Concerns with Bats

Florida bat colonies typically roost in caves and hollow trees, though they may enter a house through loose boards and torn screens. Homes with pools and outdoor lights appeal to bats because these elements attract insects, the pests' main food source. Since bats can transmit rabies and other diseases, people should avoid handling them.

Raccoons in the City

Bustling cities like Cape Coral frequently deal with raccoon issues. These adaptable pests thrive in urban settings, which offer plenty of trash and insects to eat as well as water and lodging. Raccoons often den under porches or in sheds, resulting in encounters with homeowners. Wary around humans, the animals will defend themselves with their teeth and claws.

Squirrel Problems

A common sight in Florida, squirrels enjoy a diet of nuts and seeds from yards. Some species dig holes to store their finds, ruining the look of well-kept lawns. A squirrel will also squeeze through gaps in roofs or vents to nest inside. Once indoors, the pests can cause costly damage by tearing insulation and chewing wires.

Other Cape Coral Pests

Like raccoons and bats, armadillos in Florida are most active at night. However, the steady loss of natural habitats in Cape Coral increases daytime sightings of these animals in neighborhoods. An armadillo can carry leprosy, so it is safest to stay away.

Coyotes also enter local yards if food is scarce. They hunt for small mammals, such as rabbits, mice, or even cats, and sometimes dig in lawns to reach their prey. A coyote is more prone to flee than attack, but residents should never approach one.
