Wildlife Problems in Newton, MA

Both homeowners and wildlife pests love Newton, MA, for its parks, waterways, and temperate climate. As the city’s neighborhoods continue to grow and expand, animals like squirrels and raccoons must look for meals and shelter within residential areas.

Bat Problems

Searching for a quiet, dark place to roost, bats in Newton access attics through loose shingles and vents. Inside, their guano begins to build up, staining ceilings and producing a foul smell. Hearing flapping, rustling, and squeaking sounds is also common when there’s a bat colony in the house.

Squirrels in Homes

Although they are small, tree squirrels cause costly damage to homes across Massachusetts. If shelter is hard to find, the animals will nest in crawl spaces, attics, and sheds. A squirrel may then gnaw on exposed electrical wires, tear insulation, and leave teeth marks on wooden supports.

Rabies and Raccoons

Raccoons frequently scavenge for their next meal in gardens, trash bins, and pet bowls, leaving a mess for Newton locals. The pests are vectors of the rabies virus as well, so their presence is more than just a nuisance. A rabid raccoon may behave strangely, or it could show no symptoms. People can contract the disease through bites or scratches from an infected animal.

Other Massachusetts Pests

Whiles foxes are generally timid, they come to Newton suburbs more often when they locate a food source. After it has adapted to the area, a fox may target garbage cans or even view some pets in yards as prey. To avoid issues, make sure to secure open containers and supervise cats or small dogs outdoors.

Newton residents might notice woodchucks tunneling in yards as well. A woodchuck will sometimes burrow beneath sheds and porches, which can lead to uneven landscaping, unstable foundations, and holes in lawns.
