Wildlife Problems in New Hampshire

With many types of terrain and four distinct seasons, New Hampshire fosters a thriving ecosystem of plants, animals, and people. Unfortunately, both warm, humid summers and snowy winters throughout the state can lead to conflicts between residents and wildlife pests.

The Ins and Outs of Squirrels

Various squirrel species call New Hampshire home, from flying squirrels to tree squirrels. These rodents mean trouble indoors and out. In the yard, tree squirrels dig to unearth food and store caches for the winter. When the pests break inside, usually to give birth, they make a mess of attics with their urine and droppings.

Bats in the Attic

Another fan of New Hampshire attics, bat colonies use these spaces as rest stops during the day. At night, they go out hunting for insects, making squeaking and rustling sounds as they enter and exit the home. While their noises can be annoying, the bigger problem with bats comes from disease. Bats are one of the most common carriers of the rabies virus.

Raccoons in Attics

Raccoons also spread rabies throughout New Hampshire. With their extremely nimble hands, the pests easily tear through window screens and enlarge gaps in siding. A raccoon infestation in the attic or chimney puts people at heightened risk of coming into contact with a rabid animal. Bites and scratches can transmit this virus.

Rodent Pest Control

With all the waterways and forests in the state, rodents and skunks often live near residents of New Hampshire. Mice and rats create the most serious issues for homeowners when they sneak into houses in search of food. Rodent droppings in pantry goods or ventilation systems can cause foul smells and illness.

Skunk Control

Skunks are typically more of an outdoor nuisance. The pests dig for grubs, creating cone-shaped holes that ruin the look of manicured lawns. A skunk's strong-smelling musk can linger on a property for days after the animal moves on.
