Bats in Jacksonville
Warm and muggy weather makes Jacksonville, NC, a common place to find bats year-round. High average temperatures in winter attract migrating species to North Carolina from other states. In addition, the humid climate supports plentiful bug life, allowing bats to stay well-fed.
Bats often roost in barns or attics. To prevent the pests from moving in, homeowners can put bat houses in yards to lure them away from homes. These small shelters encourage the animals to stay, reducing the number of mosquitoes and other night-time insects. However, bats may still infest homes over time.
Like bats, red foxes in Jacksonville also wait until night falls to begin hunting for prey. In yards, these pests target small mammals like rabbits and squirrels. They are active all year and stay close to lawns that provide plenty of food. Red foxes may endanger drivers when the pests roam freely on roads at night.
