Common Wildlife Issues in Terre Haute

Known as the capital of the Wabash Valley, Terre Haute, IN, has both urban and suburban landscapes that often overlap. Waterways and parklands also attract common wildlife pests to the area. These animals sometimes break into homes to seek shelter from the year-round precipitation.

Raccoons in the Home

Raccoons like to live near a water source. Since Terre Haute has plenty of creeks and rivers surrounding its suburbs, the pests may settle in backyards. Their agile paws help them pry open windows and vents to gain access to attics. A raccoon infestation indoors increases the potential for rabies exposure.

Backyard Bats

In Indiana, several types of bats may roost in homes when their natural habitats are scarce. While their nightly feeding excursions keep insect populations down, rustling noises often disturb sleeping residents. Like raccoons, a bat can also transmit the rabies virus through bites and scratches.

Tree Squirrels Galore

Squirrels prefer to den in protected, cave-like environments. These settings help females protect their young. As such, the pests nest everywhere from tree cavities to attic and outbuildings in Terre Haute. When in a home, a squirrel can damage insulation, create foul odors with their waste, and spread diseases.

Other Western Indiana Nuisances

Terre Haute homeowners frequently contend with pigeon and skunk infestations. Pigeons thrive near humans, and their droppings can tarnish buildings and pollute sidewalks. Skunks also cause aesthetic issues by digging holes in people's yards. Additionally, pets are often a target for this nocturnal animals' pungent spray.
