Wildlife Problems in Reno, NV

Dangerous Raccoons

Residents of Reno should be wary of raccoons in their yards. These pests are notorious for knocking over trash bins and denning under porches. However, the bigger issue is the diseases they spread. Rabies and raccoon roundworm pose serious threats to anyone dealing with an infestation.

Bats and Disease

Bats in Nevada also create problems by spreading illness. In the Reno area, they're the most pervasive vector of the rabies virus. While the animals only bite in self-defense, having a bat inside the house puts residents at risk. The pests transmit a fungal disease through their droppings as well.

Squirrels in the Attic

Reno has a handful of flying and tree squirrel species. These pests cause trouble when they move their nests from backyard trees into the attic. Once inside, squirrels give birth, stain stored items with urine, and chew on wires. In rare cases, they even start electrical fires.

Nevada Snakes

In Nevada, there are five venomous snake species. These reptiles thrive in dense brush and hide under porches, rocks, and debris. Most shy away from contact with people. However, when threatened, they may bite in self-defense.

Snakes seek out places where food and shelter are readily available. Reno-Tahoe area residents dealing with a rodent infestation may also discover snakes on the property. Both venomous and non-venomous snakes enter homes and garages looking for prey or a quiet place to escape the heat.

Reno-Tahoe Deer Mice

Since they can fit in openings the size of a nickel, mice have little trouble sneaking into a home. Deer mice near Reno and Lake Tahoe attract predators, contaminate stored food, and spread hantavirus through airborne pathogens in their waste. Seasonal homes and cabins are particularly prone to deer mouse problems.
