Wildlife Pests in Keller
The sunny days and mild temperatures of Keller, TX, make it a great place to live for both people and wildlife. Many animals in the city are common throughout the northern part of the state.
Texas has a large snake population, and there are four native venomous species found in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. These include:
- Rattlesnakes - Noted for their distinct warning rattle.
- Cottonmouths - Has dark scales and a white mouth.
- Copperheads - Easily recognized by their orange-brown color.
- Coral snakes - Distinguished by alternating red, yellow, and black bands.
Rattlesnakes tend to inhabit rocky areas, while cottonmouths and copperheads prefer streams, rivers, and ponds. Coral snakes are fairly elusive but can be found in hilly terrain.
Dangerous conflicts may occur when a snake comes into the yard to hide in brush, firewood piles, rocks, or debris. While not generally hostile, the pests will attack if startled or injured. A bite from a venomous species can be fatal.
Skunks are another major concern for residents in Keller as they account for most of the rabies cases in the area. The illness is life-threatening for people and their pets, so a skunk found near a home or neighborhood should be avoided.
In addition to disease issues, the striped skunk is known for its foul-smelling defensive spray. The intense stench is unpleasant and difficult to remove.
