March 15, 2021
Although known for preferring nature over the comfort of our properties, wildlife creatures have a nasty habit of coming onto properties and causing trouble. If you are at a loss as to what to do about these common Dallas pests, here are a few recommendations of where to start.
Learn About Local Wildlife
The Dallas area is home to a large variety of wildlife creatures, and not all are known for causing trouble around properties. To help you know what animals pose a threat to your property and personal wellbeing here is a basic breakdown of a few common area wildlife pests.
Bats: Bats are nocturnal pests that will only come out from hiding during the night time hours. To stay safe and rest easy during the day, many bat species will look for shelter within the walls of a property. While inside, these nasty pests drop fecal matter onto attic floors and make disruptive noises late at night.
Raccoons: Raccoons are best described as night-time bandits. These masked, meat-eating mammals use their opposable thumbs and quick wits to tip over trash cans, tear up gardens, and destroy property to get a bite to eat. On occasion, raccoons will come indoors to find shelter during times of cold, heat, or inclement weather.
Snakes: Snakes pose little to no threat to your property, but can be dangerous and threaten human health. If the weather outside is unfavorable, these slithering pests might look for ways into your property. Once inside, snakes will try to stay out of sight and are likely to attack anyone who bothers them.
Squirrels: Squirrels are one of the most common property-invading wildlife creatures in our area. These bushy-tailed menaces love tearing up gardens and invading properties to find shelter.
Moles: Moles are tunneling pests that will dig wherever dirt and food are available. Most often, moles eat insects, grubs, and earthworms, but they will occasionally consume vegetables from gardens and the roots of other plants.
