Wildlife Problems in Corpus Christi, TX
Corpus Christi, TX, is a port town with a humid climate, which makes it a prime target for wildlife pests. Residents may find animals scouring yards for food, although some move into homes and transmit disease.
Squirrels in Neighborhoods
A common sight in eastern Texas, gray squirrels typically den in hollow trees or leaf-lined nests. These agile climbers search rooftops for nuts and seeds. While a squirrel favors living outdoors, it will take advantage of broken vents or damaged shingles to enter an attic. When they break into homes, these pests bring fleas and ticks indoors as well.
Most active at night, Corpus Christi raccoons forage for meals under cover of darkness. When they discover pet food or open trash cans around houses, these adaptable animals overcome their fear of humans quickly. As a result, the pests will den under porches or even use pet doors to get inside houses.
Bats in the House
Texas attics and sheds offer a warm and quiet place for bats to roost. Unfortunately, the pests' waste may contain a disease-causing mold, so their presence is harmful to residents. When disturbed, dried bat guano and mold spores disperse into the air. People who inhale this fungus can develop histoplasmosis, a respiratory illness.
Additional Nuisance Wildlife
Roof rats and opossums are two other pests in Corpus Christi. A roof rat will seek shelter near a reliable food source, often resulting in property damage and infestations. An opossum tends to live in woodland areas. However, this animal will visit the city to hunt for birds, mice, and insects.
