Common Wildlife Issues in Bloomington, IN

Backyard Raccoons

As a common pest in Bloomington, raccoons pose a variety of problems to residents. The animals are a major vector for rabies in Indiana and cause damage in homes, lawns, and gardens. Since raccoon infestations are persistent in neighborhoods, the pests are often in conflict with homeowners.

Bats and Health

Bats often roost in attics, barns, or sheds. In addition to potentially carrying rabies, the pests create droppings that may grow a fungus dangerous to humans. People who breathe in spores are at risk for the disease histoplasmosis. Bat guano also leaves a foul smell in Indiana homes.

Types of Squirrels in Bloomington

Local residents see many squirrel species romping across their yards. Common varieties include flying and fox squirrels. The pests cause issues by digging up lawns and breaking into soffits or attics to build nests. They also carry mites, fleas, and ticks in their fur.

Other Indiana Pests

Opossums can be found rummaging through trash cans in search of food. These pests carry numerous diseases harmful to both Bloomington residents and their pets. The presence of these prey animals can also attract coyotes to residential areas. Found throughout the state of Indiana, the dog-like pests will not pass up an easy meal, whether it's an opossum or an unattended dog or cat.
