Wildlife Pests in Arlington

A wide variety of pest wildlife calls Arlington, TX, home due to the many lakes, rivers, and green spaces in the city.

Raccoons and Skunks

Local raccoons are recognizable due to their masked faces and ringed tails. They are infamous for knocking over garbage cans and nesting in attics and chimneys. This habit can be worrying, as the raccoon is a rabies carrier.

Like raccoons, skunks are highly adaptable and enter yards to find food and shelter. Mostly known for their pungent scent, they will den under decks, sheds, patios, and porches. Aside from leaving behind a foul smell, a skunk will also dig in lawns to find grubs and other insects.

Dangerous Predators

Large predatory animals in Arlington, like coyotes and foxes, may also follow the promise of food into yards. Coyotes are opportunistic eaters regularly found gorging on garbage and pet food. They are also known to attack livestock, and may even hunt small pets that are left unattended.

Similarly, foxes often enter lawns in search of an easy meal. A fox will eat whatever is available, including roadkill and garbage, as well as kept chickens and their eggs. These pests often host numerous parasites and are carriers of the rabies virus, distemper, and mange.
