Pest & Wildlife Pressure in Albuquerque, NM
Albuquerque, NM, surrounds the Rio Grande, making the area a welcome habitat for many wildlife species. It's not unusual for homeowners to spot pests both large and small in their neighborhoods.
Unfortunately, wildlife can come into conflict with people due to their feeding, nesting, and hunting habits.
Large Predator Problems
Albuquerque residents may spot bobcats and coyotes traveling through lawns to find their next meal. Yards with pet food bowls outside and uncovered trash bins attract these pests. While rare, bobcats and coyotes can become dangerous when targeting small dogs and cats as prey.
The animals sometimes move even closer to homes to take advantage of resting spots out of the New Mexico sun. Open spaces under porches and sheds conceal these predators, putting unsuspecting people and pets at risk. While digging under fences or enlarging their dens, coyotes or bobcats can also cause lawn damage.
Skunks Around Homes
These pests cause several problems in Albuquerque yards. Skunks dig holes in lawns looking for insects and make their way into backyard chicken coops to feed on poultry or eggs.
In addition, a scared skunk will try to deter those who get too close with a sticky, foul-smelling spray. The liquid is tough to wash away and can irritate the skin. In New Mexico, these pests are common rabies carriers.
