Wildlife Problems in Medford, MA

Located just north of Boston, the wooded landscape and scenic parks of Medford, MA, attract both humans and wildlife. As animals like raccoons and coyotes lose their habitats, they venture into urban areas in search of meals or shelter and cause issues for homeowners.

Raccoons and Disease

Curious and adaptable, raccoons thrive in Massachusetts neighborhoods. In addition to tipping over garbage bins while looking for food and leaving a mess in yards, the animals can carry raccoon roundworm. Infected pests pass the eggs through their feces, and the parasites can spread to adults, children, or pets if ingested.

Bat Problems

Bat colonies enter homes via tiny openings in vents or cracks in chimneys. Guano builds up quickly beneath roosts, causing a strong stench and stains on ceilings and walls. Since bats are nocturnal, squeaks and rustling noises keep Medford residents awake at night as well.

Squirrels in the House

Despite the rodents' small size, tree squirrels cause big issues for Massachusetts homeowners. These pests use branches to leap onto roofs and squeeze through small holes or broken vents to enter attics. Once inside, a tree squirrel may gnaw on exposed wires, tear apart insulation, or damage wooden beams, resulting in costly repairs.

Other Medford Nuisances

When food is scarce, coyotes will invade Massachusetts suburbs to find easy meals in trashcans or pet bowls. They may also prey on small dogs and cats if given a chance. Howling and yipping sounds are typically the first sign that a coyote pack is in the vicinity.

Rats can cause significant damage to homes in Medford. These rodents burrow under sheds and houses, creating deep holes and tunnels in yards. A rat can also gnaw through siding or fence pickets, damaging property and weakening structures.
