Wildlife Problems in Peoria, IL

Located on the Illinois River and surrounded by prairies and woodlands, Peoria is a popular home for a variety of wildlife species. The thriving city has experienced significant urban and suburban development, resulting in pests such as raccoons, squirrels, and coyotes moving from their natural habitats into residential areas for food and shelter.


Bats in the area often roost in attics, where they leave large amounts of guano, which can develop dangerous fungal spores. When inhaled, these spores can lead to histoplasmosis, a respiratory disease. Bats are also known carriers of rabies and should only be handled by professionals.


Peoria residents often see raccoons hunting for crayfish near the Illinois River, but that’s not the only source of food for these pests. Raccoons are notorious for rummaging through trash cans, raiding bird feeders, and eating pet food left out at night.


Gray squirrels can easily climb onto rooftops, where they gain access to homes through broken roof shingles and open vents. Once inside an attic, a gray squirrel may gnaw on wiring, shred insulation, and soil ceilings with urine and feces.

Other Pests in Peoria

Many wildlife species have adjusted to living in residential areas. Coyotes and opossums are common backyard nuisances. Coyotes typically hunt rabbits and rodents but do pose a threat to cats and small dogs. Opossums are a less dangerous threat but are known for rummaging through trash cans and denning beneath decks and porches.
