Wildlife Problems in St. Augustine, FL

Positioned on the Atlantic coast, St. Augustine Beach, FL, stands as a major target for wildlife issues. The city's warm, humid weather creates an ideal habitat for many animals. Climate conditions can also lead to thunderstorms, which drive a variety of pests to seek food and shelter in residential areas.

Raccoons in Yards

To get to a meal, a raccoon will readily tip over garbage cans, roll up grass sod, raid pet bowls, and dig in gardens. These pests have adapted to living among people and often take up residence under decks or in attics. Because raccoons can spread the rabies virus, their presence poses a serious risk to Florida homeowners.

Trouble with Squirrels

Abundant in St. Augustine Beach neighborhoods, squirrels thrive near food sources. As such, lawns with birdfeeders, nut or fruit trees, and gardens are prone to visits from these rodents. A squirrel can squeeze itself through gaps in roofing or enlarge holes to move inside. In homes, the pests may damage insulation and belongings.

Bat Infestations

Bats help to control insects in Florida by eating mosquitoes and other pests. However, the animals become a danger when they roost in attics during the day. Piles of bat droppings indoors can foster the growth of a harmful fungus. Breathing in these mold spores may cause a life-threatening infection in people. In addition, the pests are a common rabies carrier.

More Local Pests

Frequent rainfall in St. Augustine Beach draws insect larvae aboveground, attracting hungry armadillos to yards. An armadillo that decides to stick around may dig multiple burrows. Mice are another pest issue in Florida. Scarce resources can lead to a mouse entering a home to feed on pantry goods. The rodents breed quickly and create unsanitary conditions. Skunks are also a nuisance to Florida residents because of their tendency to dig in lawns and their unpleasant musk. These animals may spray cats or dogs that bring the odor inside.
