The Types Of Nuisance Wildlife That Hang Around Kittitas County Yards

Not every wild animal is a wildlife pest. There are many creatures that live here in Kittitas County that do not threaten homeowners or properties. Unfortunately, not all creatures are this way. Four common wild animals you should be concerned about are squirrels, chipmunks, raccoons, and skunks.

Squirrels and chipmunks like to break into outbuildings, attics, and other warm areas during the colder months of the year. Raccoons and skunks regularly find shelter under homes, porches, and inside outbuildings as well. Sometimes, it is hard to tell what types of wild animals are living on your property and what problems they might be causing. Find out what pests you are dealing with by inviting our team over for a quick inspection. We are wildlife removal and identification experts and would be happy to help you assess your troubles. 

The Dangers Nuisance Wildlife Brings

Wild animals are consistently problematic. Pests like rats and mice spread disease by defecating and urinating indoors. They also damage property with their teeth and can carry pests like fleas and ticks indoors. Other wildlife pests also carry fleas and ticks.

There is also a clear concern with raccoons and skunks related to the way they damage properties while trying to get into outbuildings, under porches, or into other cozy areas. All of this isn’t even mentioning the smell that comes with skunks, as you already know about this problem. To keep different wild animals away from your property, here are some prevention tips to consider and some local wildlife removal options.
