Pest and Wildlife Pressure in Quad Cities, IA
Home to over 400,000 people and located on the Mississippi River, the Quad Cities area of Iowa and Illinois attracts all kinds of wildlife pests.
A Pest on the Rise
Feral swine are an invasive species in Illinois and Iowa. These quick-breeding animals can double their populations in just four months. Traveling in large groups, the pests cause damage by destroying lawns, causing vehicle collisions, and trampling gardens. A feral hog can also carry diseases like swine fever and tularemia.
A Common Nuisance
Able to adapt to living near humans, many types of tree squirrels are common in both rural and urban areas of the Quad Cities. These pests create problems from above and below. Squirrels may climb onto the roof to nest in the attic or dig multiple holes across the yard to bury nuts and seeds.
A Neighborhood Predator
Coyotes lack natural predators in the Quad Cities, allowing their numbers to grow. Though not dangerous unless sick or provoked, a coyote may consider dogs and cats to be prey. Yards with outdoor pet food or infestations of rats and other small pests attract them. Like feral swine, coyotes can transmit diseases to people and animals.
