Common Wildlife Problems
Citizens of Indianapolis, IN, deal with a number of pest problems throughout the year, and feral pigeons are one of the most pressing concerns. The accumulation of pigeon droppings fosters the growth of the fungus that causes histoplasmosis, an upper respiratory disease.
Residents also come into conflict with fox squirrels, raccoons, and skunks. Fox squirrels are the most abundant tree squirrel in the State of Indiana. They are notorious forgorging themselves on the seeds found in bird feeders and regularly enter homes to nest. Raccoons and skunks are also common home invaders and are known carriers of various diseases, most notably rabies.
