Common Wildlife Issues in Allentown, PA

As one of the more populous cities in Pennsylvania, Allentown is frequented by wildlife pests such as raccoonssquirrelsrodentsbats, and snakes.

Backyard Raccoons

Outdoor pet food and unsealed garbage cans present a meal too attractive for raccoons to pass up. If they find a yard that regularly offers food, the pests may decide to den nearby in a chimney, or attic. Since an Allentown raccoon can carry rabies or other diseases, contact with these animals is dangerous.

Damage Caused by Squirrels

Pennsylvania residents also have problems with squirrels in attics. Once the pests move inside through damaged roofing or vents, they often build messy nests to raise their young. In addition to creating sounds that annoy homeowners, the pests chew on belongings and rip up insulation.

Rat Problems

Rats and mice invade homes most often during cold weather. These pests reproduce quickly and contaminate kitchens as they search for food such as grains, fruits, cereals, and fatty foods.

Issues with Bats

Bats also take advantage of the heat homes provide during cold Pennsylvania winters. They are most commonly found in the attics of homes, and their droppings facilitate the growth of a fungus that causes respiratory problems for residents.

Sneaky Snakes

Finally, snakes are often found in Allentown basements because they follow rodents, their main food source, indoors. People are frightened by their presence, and the pests bite when startled.
