Wildlife Problems in Pensacola, FL
Located on the Gulf Coast, Pensacola, FL, is an especially attractive setting for pests. The warm climate and thriving city life allow many animals to stay active year-round either outdoors or inside homes.
In Pensacola neighborhoods, raccoons investigate yards and gardens to find something to eat. Loosely sealed trash cans and outdoor pet food bowls provide them with meals. Aside from the mess they make digging through trash, a raccoon can spread diseases like rabies and canine distemper. These pests are the most common rabies carrier in Florida.
Tree squirrels thrive in urban areas like Pensacola. The pests strip bark from trees and dig holes in yards to bury food for later. A squirrel will typically nest in a tree, but the animal's climbing skills also allow them access to roofs and attic.
Florida residents should regularly look for signs that bats have moved into their homes. The animals' oily fur stains house siding around their point of entry, and piles of bat droppings often accumulate on the ground below. Bats also make squeaking or shuffling noises when they leave the roost at dusk as well as when they return.
Other Pests in Pensacola
Causing a nuisance from below, moles and armadillos burrow in lawns, leaving dirt mounds and holes behind. Both pests get rid of some harmful insects but cause lawn damage in the process. Most mole species prefer to dig through damp soil, so watering the grass less frequently may help keep them away.
