Wildlife Problems in Grapevine, TX

While the many historical homes of Grapevine, TX, provide plenty of charm, older construction comes with its share of pest problems. Several types of animals will make use of loose shingles, gaps in walls, and foundations faults in old and new houses alike to move indoors.

When Squirrels Move In

Holes in home exteriors can give a squirrel access to attics and wall voids. If no gap exists for these rodents to exploit, they may even chew through weak points in roofs to create an opening big enough to squeeze through. Squirrels that make it inside often compound the problem by building nests and giving birth to young.

Bats in the House

Creatures of habit, bats in Texas frequently return to similar roosting sites every year. After the flying pests establish themselves in Grapevine homes and barns, it can be hard to get rid of them. Along with creating noise issues and unpleasant odors, a bat can spread rabies via bites and scratches.

Hungry Raccoons

Most active at night, a raccoon will readily tip over and pick through unsealed garbage cans. Residents of Texas neighborhoods often wake to find trash scattered around the yard. Nearby food sources can lead mother raccoons to den under porches and in attics as well. In houses, these animals damage roofing and insulation.

Native Wildlife

Skunks are a common pest in Texas cities thanks to the warm weather and plentiful food. While they also dig in yards, the animals are best known for defensively spraying foul-smelling liquid at people and pets. The rancid scent of skunk spray can linger around homes for several weeks if untreated.

New to the Area

Taking over what used to be the territory of red wolves, coyotes have spread across the state and into cities like Grapevine. These predators are often visible during the day or night, boldly roaming yards in packs and knocking over trash cans. A coyote may also prey on small pets and livestock.

More Wildlife in Grapevine

A common outdoor pest in Texas, armadillos frequently ruin lawns and gardens while digging for grubs. Armadillo burrows also pose a tripping hazard. Opossums are another local nuisance. These pests may den under decks or scavenge for meals near homes. In rare cases, an opossum can transfer diseases like tularemia and leptospirosis to people.
