Wildlife Pests in Mansfield

Located near Dallas and Fort Worth, Mansfield, TX, is a growing community. Several factors open up homes to wildlife nuisances like bats, squirrels, and raccoons. Aging structures and frequent renovations in this historic area allow pests entry indoors. Abundant parks and recreation sites also draw animals into the city.

Roosting Bats

As new construction takes over their natural habitats, bats often enter Mansfield houses in search of shelter. If the pests roost in an enclosed area, their foul-smelling droppings build up quickly. Bat guano encourages the growth of fungi that can lead to diseases such as histoplasmosis and cryptococcosis.

Destructive Squirrels

Texas tree squirrel species eat fruits, nuts, and bird seed, making lawns the ideal feeding grounds. Local gray and fox squirrels dig up yards in multiple places to bury their food for later. In addition to causing damage outdoors, these rodents can get into attics. Once inside, squirrels may tear insulation and gnaw on wiring.

Infected Raccoons

Intelligent and curious, raccoons go wherever they can find food. These animals may approach homes looking for a meal. They also dig through trash cans, gardens, and compost. As a known carrier of rabies in Mansfield, the raccoon poses a serious threat to homeowners and pets.

Other Pests

Though usually shy around people, coyotes frequently pass through Mansfield neighborhoods. Houses near open areas like fields or golf courses are especially vulnerable. A hunting coyote may snatch small, unattended dogs or cats.

While snakes do not prey on humans, they will strike if cornered or threatened. These reptiles hide in tall grass or under rocks and logs. Residents should be cautious, as this part of the state is home to many venomous varieties, including the copperhead, cottonmouth, Texas coral snake, and several types of rattlesnakes.
