Wildlife Problems in Los Lunas, NM

The semi-arid climate of Los Lunas, NM, often drives wildlife into neighborhoods in search of food and water. Many animals, such as raccoons, squirrels, bats, coyotes, and mice, learn to adapt to suburban and urban areas. While these species can live in harmony with humans, they become pests when they harm property and endanger people.

Hungry Raccoons

Raccoons are plentiful in Los Lunas due in part to their broad diet. These pests are omnivores that can adjust to meals provided by their habitat, including garden fruits, fish in ponds, and garbage. Once a raccoon discovers a food source in a yard, it may return regularly or even den inside a chimney or attic.

Digging Squirrels

Common across New Mexico, rock squirrels can spell trouble for homeowners. These rodents love to eat sprouts, flowers, and vegetables from gardens and dig extensive tunnels in lawns. Because a rock squirrel lives in and expands the same burrow systems each year, this pest is not a problem that will go away on its own.

Bats in the House

Los Lunas' bats look for a dark, quiet place to rest during the day. When their natural roosts are scarce, they often turn to attics and barn lofts. To spot bat entry points into homes, check for stains around gaps in fascia boards or look for piles of droppings on the ground below. Since bats can be rabies carriers in New Mexico, a colony indoors presents a health hazard for residents.

More Nuisances in Los Lunas

New Mexico encounters wildlife problems ranging from big to small. Coyotes are dog-like predators that sometimes roam lawns alone or in packs. Although a coyote will avoid people, the animals may hunt pets and livestock left unattended outside.

Located in the Albuquerque metro area, Los Lunas deals with overflow rodents from nearby cities. House mice make use of the resources that humans provide by taking shelter in homes and eating from pantries. Not only can a house mouse taint stored food with waste, but the pest also brings disease-carrying fleas and ticks inside.
