Jacksonville, FL, residents must contend with numerous wildlife pests throughout the year, one of the most common being snakes. Florida is home to nearly 50 species of the pest, six of which are venomous, including the cottonmouth, or water moccasin. Though white-tail deer were once nearly eradicated from the state, populations now number in the hundreds of thousands. The wildlife pests feed on numerous crops and ornamental plants and can also carry Lyme disease-causing ticks. Finally, wild hogs are omnivorous pests that feed by rooting in the ground with their snouts. Large populations of feral pigs cause extensive damage to the soil and trample planted crops. Gray squirrels can also be a nuisance.
