If you have nuisance wildlife invading your attic, basement, garage, or other area of your home, call Titan Pest & Wildlife.

Identifying Common Winter Wildlife Pests

Winter invites a variety of wildlife to seek shelter in and around residential areas. From rodents like mice and rats to raccoons and squirrels, these creatures may find their way into your home in search of food, warmth, and shelter. Understanding the signs of infestation is crucial for early detection and prevention.

Some of the most common ways to identify wildlife pests include:

  • Scratching or scampering sounds – Rodents like mice and rats are notorious for scratching or scampering sounds in walls, ceilings, or attics.
  • Animal droppings – Small, pellet-like droppings clearly indicate rodent activity. Mice and rats often leave droppings in areas they frequent. Larger wildlife like raccoons or squirrels may leave distinctive droppings in and around your property.
  • Visible damage – Rodents are known for gnawing on wires and insulation. Check for signs of damage in your attic or crawl spaces. Larger animals may damage vents or screens when trying to gain access to your home.
  • Foul smells – Wildlife can sometimes be detected by unpleasant odors from their urine, feces, or the animals themselves. The scent may be more noticeable in enclosed spaces.
  • Nesting in attic or chimney – Inspect these areas for signs of nesting materials such as twigs, leaves, or insulation, which may indicate the presence of squirrels, birds, or other nesting animals.

The Dangers of Wildlife Infestations

Nuisance wildlife can pose several risks to your home. They may damage insulation, chew through electrical wires, and contaminate living spaces with droppings. Additionally, some wildlife may carry diseases that can be transmitted to humans and pets, emphasizing the importance of prompt and effective pest control.
