Wildlife Problems in Meridian, MS

With its proximity to forests, creeks, and rivers, Meridian, MS, is a popular place for both people and wildlife. As the city and its suburbs expand, natural habitats shrink. Displaced animals such as bats, squirrels, and raccoons often move into neighborhoods in search of food, water, and shelter.

The Dangers of Bats

When tree hollows and caves are unavailable, bats in urban areas like Meridian will sometimes roost in homes. Bats are a primary vector of the rabies virus, which they can transmit through bites and scratches. Mississippi homeowners should avoid any contact with the animals to prevent injury or infection.

Squirrel Damage

Squirrels are famous for stealing from bird feeders and damaging lawns when they dig holes to bury nuts and seeds. A squirrel can also enter an attic through tiny openings in roofs or broken vents. Once inside, these rodents tear up insulation, soil surfaces with waste, and gnaw on wiring.

Raccoon Trouble

Well adapted to living near people, raccoons forage in trash cans while looking for meals around Meridian. The pests also raid gardens and eat from pet dishes left outside. A raccoon may den under a porch or shed to stay close to reliable food sources. In addition, they will break into attics and climb into uncapped chimneys to nest and raise their young.

Other Mississippi Wildlife

Moles create underground burrows that ruin landscaping in Meridian yards. They dig tunnels in order to find and feed on insects, grubs, and larvae, leaving holes and piles of dirt scattered around lawns in the process. Mole burrows also damage plant roots, which can affect grass, flowers, and shrubs.

A coyote preys on rodents and typically dens wherever food is plentiful. These predators hunt other animals as well, including cats and small dogs. Handfeeding coyotes or leaving scraps outside for them reduces their fear of humans, which often encourages the pests to move into Mississippi neighborhoods.
