Wildlife Problems in Kaw Valley

With direct access to the Kansas River, the Kaw Valley, KS, area presents the right conditions for animals to flourish. From bats to raccoons, the region's pests sometimes come into conflict with the people who live there. These nuisances can result in costly damage as well as the spread of diseases.

Bats in Kansas

A bat can move into a Kansas home through several entry points. Open windows, gaps in siding, uncapped chimneys, and broken attic vents are all invitations to come inside. Colony roosts indoors amass a large amount of droppings, the musty odor of which can attract insects. The animals also have the potential to carry rabies.

Squirrels in Homes and Yards

Strong climbing and jumping skills allow squirrels to gain easy access to attics for nesting. In a house, this common Kaw Valley pest may gnaw at wiring and insulation, creating a danger of fire. Out on the lawn, a squirrel will eat bulbs in gardens, dig holes to store food for severe Kansas winters, and steal seed from bird feeders.

Raccoon Diseases and Damage

A raccoon has many ways of causing issues in neighborhoods. The pests tip trash cans, rip away siding, and den in attics or under decks. They can also transmit diseases. Raccoons in Kaw Valley may harbor canine distemper and rabies as well as leaving behind waste that contains harmful roundworm eggs.

Other Kaw Valley Wildlife

Most Kansas residents have seen woodchucks and opossums either on their property or by the side of the road. Both pests are abundant and can lead to problems for local homeowners. Unsightly woodchuck tunnels and burrows pose a tripping hazard in yards. While an opossum won't dig up lawns, it may harbor a variety of parasites and take shelter in garages and sheds.
