Wildlife Problems in Malden, MA

Located in the Boston metro area, Malden, MA, doesn’t have enough natural sources of food and shelter to support local wildlife populations. As a result, the pests turn to neighborhoods for survival. Homeowners regularly encounter raccoons, squirrels, and bats among other animals.

Raccoons Nearby

Raccoons are clever and adaptable, which is why they usually mean trouble for Malden homeowners. These pests can open unsecured trashcans, pry up container lids, and easily slip through shed doors. Attempting to capture a raccoon is dangerous. Animals infected with rabies transmit the virus through bites and scratches.

Squirrels in the Yard

Abundant throughout Massachusetts, squirrels have adjusted well to life around houses. These rodents raid gardens in search of berries, fruit, and flowers and may strip bark from tree trunks as well as branches. A squirrel can also damage lawns by burying food caches, leaving unsightly holes across the yard.

Bat Roosts

Bats sometimes gather in colonies in attics and outbuildings. In addition to causing a terrible odor, a buildup of guano beneath their roosts is a health risk for Malden residents. Bat waste can develop harmful fungal spores. When inhaled, these microbes can cause histoplasmosis, a serious respiratory disease.

More Massachusetts Wildlife

Other common Malden nuisances are opossums and skunks. An opossum roots through garbage bins for easy meals and leaves messes that attract rodents and other pests.

Skunk populations thrive across Massachusetts. If cornered or threatened, these animals can release a foul liquid from their hindquarters and hit a target within ten feet. Skunk spray irritates the eyes and nose and is difficult to wash away.
