Austin Wildlife Pressure: Various native and invasive wildlife pests wreak havoc in Austin, TX. For instance, nutria are found around the city's wetland areas where they feed on aquatic vegetation, multiply quickly, and invade private gardens when their natural food sources dwindle. Coyotes are also a major problem. They annoy ranchers and farmers by decimating populations of livestock. Finally, feral pig populations continue to rise in Austin and throughout Texas. These pests uproot vegetation and trample fields when searching for food.
Austin, TX, has a humid subtropical climate that allows populations of venomous and non-venomous snakes to thrive. These pests like to hang out in the overgrown grass of lawns and inside basements. Though non-venomous species don't do much harm to the structural integrity of homes or spread diseases, they do frighten people with their presence. Venomous snakes, on the other hand, can be deadly and bite people who unknowingly get too close. Armadillos are also common in and around the Texas city and damage lawns by digging cone-shaped holes in search of food. These pests are known carriers of leprosy.
