Common Wildlife Issues in Fort Wayne, IN

Raccoons, Squirrels, & Rodents

The large population of Fort Wayne, IN, makes it easy for pests to thrive. Wildlife like raccoons, squirrels, and rodents dig through trash cans for food and set up nests in and around homes. While raccoons are known for carrying rabies, rats and mice spread diseases such as tularemia, rat bite fever, and leptospirosis.

Rabid Bats

Bats that move into Fort Wayne houses may be rabies carriers. As a result, their presence is risky for homeowners. The illness transfers to humans through body fluids. While bites and scratches are the most common cause, even a dead bat can spread the virus. If untreated, rabies could be fatal for both people and pets.

Other Pests in Fort Wayne

Waterfowl like Canada geese are also problematic in the area. These pests are aggressive, congregate in large numbers, pick apart yards, and ruin patios, swimming areas, and parks with their excrement.
