Wildlife Problems in Alsen, LA

What Alsen, LA, lacks in size, it makes up for in natural landscapes. This picturesque area attracts plenty of people who are looking to settle down. Unfortunately, the presence of thriving neighborhoods is an open invitation for wildlife pests like raccoons, squirrels, and skunks.

The Trouble with Raccoons

The promise of food and shelter draws raccoons into Alsen yards. These pests forage in trashcans, steal from pet bowls, and even break into houses searching for meals. Once they've established a den, a female raccoon typically gives birth to a litter of up to eight kits. Having raccoons near homes, especially in large numbers, significantly increases the risk of disease transmission.

Squirrel Infestations

Tree squirrels in Louisiana also use houses as places to bear their young. These pests tend to nest in attics or uncapped chimneys. Since they carry mites and ticks in their fur, a squirrel infestation can also lead to skin rashes or the spread of Lyme disease.

Bat Diseases

As known vectors of the rabies virus, bats in the yard or home are cause for concern. Alsen residents who encounter a bat, alive or dead, should never attempt to capture or handle it. Anyone who has contact with the animals should seek medical care. Bats have tiny teeth, and bites often go unnoticed.

Other Alsen Nuisances

Louisiana residents may also notice moles and skunks in their yards. Moles dig elaborate tunnel systems underground. While it's rare to spot the rodents on the lawn, homeowners will see the raised tracks of dirt they leave behind, which ruin landscaping and make mowing much more difficult.

Skunk infestations also affect yards, as the pests dig for insects and grubs at night. They also den beneath porches, leaving an unpleasant odor in their wake. Alsen pet owners should keep dogs on a leash when skunks are around because the pests release a foul spray when cornered or threatened.
