Pest & Wildlife Pressure in Chicago
Pigeons in Chicago
Despite the tall buildings and urban bustle, Chicago, IL, harbors plenty of wildlife. One of the most common animals is the rock pigeon, which roosts on manmade structures. The pests visit yards and patios in large flocks looking for food or a place to rest.
Wherever these birds gather, residents will notice an excessive amount of droppings. Pigeon poop can kill plants and ruin paint on vehicles and buildings. Their waste also spreads diseases such as toxoplasmosis, salmonellosis, and histoplasmosis.
The dense population also makes Chicago a viable home for raccoons. In cities, these pests often survive on a diet of garbage and pet food left outdoors. The animals are rabies carriers, and their feces contains raccoon roundworm and other parasites than can infect people and pets.
