Wildlife Problems in Bernalillo, NM

The town of Bernalillo is famous for its vineyards, which bring tourists to the area and contribute to its economic success. However, arid weather, the influx of visitors, and urban development all play a part in bringing wildlife into neighborhoods. Pests like bats, raccoons, and squirrels often venture near homes looking for food, shelter, and water.

Bats and Disease

Bats typically roost in caves. However, as viable habitats shrink, they may opt for the safety of attics and outbuildings. Bernalillo homeowners who hear scratching, squeaking, and fluttering noises at night are likely to have an infestation. In addition to the rabies virus, a bat's guano can also produce Histoplasma mold spores. When inhaled, these microbes can lead to respiratory illness in humans.

Raccoon Dangers

The raccoon is a common New Mexico scavenger. Often spotted while foraging through trashcans or eating from outdoor pet food bowls, these animals make a mess while searching for meals. The pests also leave droppings behind that pollute soil with raccoon roundworm eggs.

Rock Squirrels

Although they have long furry tails like tree squirrels, this species digs burrows. In Bernalillo, a rock squirrel will tunnel around homes, dig beneath stone walls, and undermine sidewalks and driveways. Rock squirrels are also a disease risk when they're around humans. The rodents carry parasites that spread tularemia, brucellosis, and plague.

Additional Harmful Wildlife

Both house mice and coyotes cause problems for New Mexico residents. When a house mouse raids a pantry for crumbs and scraps, it also contaminates stored items with urine and feces. A rodent infestation can also attract larger predators.

A coyote on its own will usually shy away from people. Drought and hunger may drive a pack into populated areas, and pets like cats and small dogs are easy prey.
