Wildlife Problems in Jacksonville Beach, FL

As a resort city, Jacksonville Beach, FL, sees a lot of human traffic. The presence of people, the food they eat, and the shelters they build attract animals to the area. Since the weather remains warm and sunny nearly year-round, wildlife pests are always a problem.

The Good and Bad of Bats

Given Florida's humidity, the state has a large number of mosquitoes. The insects make up the majority of a bat's diet, attracting these pests in abundance. Though bats' help with mosquito control is welcome, their preference for roosting in attics is not. Indoors, their waste can stain ceilings or siding and lead to a musty smell.

Squirrel Problems

Like bats, squirrels cause trouble by getting into the homes of Jacksonville Beach residents. Squirrel nests in vents and the rodents' tendency to gnaw on wires creates a fire hazard. Additionally, the pests may carry ticks, which can spread Lyme disease.

Discouraging Raccoons

Raccoons are one of the primary vectors for rabies in Florida. As the animals are pervasive, most homeowners encounter them at some point. However, removing open trash cans, outdoor pet food, and other attractants can decrease the chance that a raccoon infestation will begin on the property.

Other Backyard Nuisances

Jacksonville Beach residents also commonly notice skunks and opossums hanging out on their lawns. Both keep to themselves unless they perceive a threat, in which case, they'll retaliate. A skunk sprays strong-smelling musk to ward off predators, while an opossum relies on its sharp teeth or ability to play dead.
