Wildlife Problems in Omaha, NE
A climate with extreme hot and cold temperatures makes Omaha, NE, susceptible to storms, tornadoes, and other severe weather throughout the year. Such conditions often drive wildlife like raccoons, bats, and squirrels indoors for shelter. Once inside, the pests create issues for residents.
Bat Urine and Droppings
While some bat species prefer to roost outdoors, others adapt to Omaha homes. One of the first signs of a bat problem is feces. Odors and staining typically lead homeowners to discover an infestation. What people might not notice is the Histoplasma mold growing in bat guano. These tiny spores can cause serious illness if inhaled.
In Omaha neighborhoods, raccoons make their dens in attics and crawl spaces. The pests frequently move indoors by tearing apart roofing, soffits, and vents or taking advantage of gaps in foundations. In a confined space a raccoon is more likely to feel trapped and may bite if residents get too close.
Squirrels are excellent climbers that easily access roofs in Nebraska. If they don't find a hole wide enough to squeeze through, these rodents will simply chew at the opening to enlarge it. In the house, a squirrel can be equally destructive as it shreds insulation and other materials to build nests.
More Nuisance Animals in Omaha
Any wildlife can get indoors if given the chance. For example, even a hole no bigger than a dime can let mice inside to eat and soil kitchen goods. In addition, open areas under decks and porches invite skunks to den near homes. Their strong smell and potential to carry rabies are problems for property owners.
