Wildlife Problems in Sarasota, FL

Bay access and miles of beaches make Sarasota a popular place for both people and pests. Nuisance animals, including bats, raccoons, and squirrels thrive in the region’s humid, warm climate. Many of these animals don’t cause serious harm, but some are capable of damaging property and spreading disease.


Sarasota homeowners often see bats flying around yards at night, when they hunt for mosquitoes. But these animals are not always content to stay outside and will look for safe shelter in homes. A bat can crawl through openings less than a half-inch in diameter. Once indoors, their droppings can quickly accumulate, creating a musty odor and favorable conditions for harmful mold to grow.


Raccoons are one of Florida’s major rabies carriers. These resourceful animals are well-adapted to urban settings and often search for meals in trash cans, gardens, and pet dishes. Raccoons will look for access to homes in attics and chimneys, where they are capable of causing significant property damage. Raccoons will become aggressive if cornered or threatened.


Squirrels are known pests in residential yards, where they gnaw at tree bark and damage plants and fruit trees. They’re skilled climbers and will search for home access through roofs, attics, and chimneys. Squirrels often nest in vents and attics, where they destroy insulation and chew on electrical wiring. This behavior increases the risk of home fires.

Other Pests in Sarasota

Rats are a common pest in Sarasota. These pests will often look for food in the kitchen or pantry. Rat urine and feces pose a significant threat to humans and pets because they can spread salmonella to food, counters, and utensils. Rats also attract snakes to the area. Sarasota residents should treat any snake with caution, as this region is home to several venomous species, including the coral snake and cottonmouth.
