Common Wildlife in Colorado
As we mentioned above, Colorado is full of cute and intriguing wildlife, but when these animals get into your home, business, or landscape, they can wreak havoc on your health and your property. If you’re concerned that your residence or office may have a squirrel, raccoon, mole, or rat problem, contact Colorado Pest Management in Denver today.
Raccoons are no stranger to Denver and they tend to be very common among urban areas. As one of the most recognizable and destructive critters in North America, these mammals have come to prefer living among humans, especially since they usually have easy access to food and shelter. Once a raccoon learns where to find food, they can be relentless in their search. These mammals are not afraid of humans or domestic animals like your dog or cat, and they’ll gladly eat all of the delicious vegetables in your garden or snatch the food from your pet’s dish if you let them.
Raccoons are very intelligent animals, and they have incredible problem solving skills. They have a keen memory of locations where they can get food, and according to recent studies, they can remember very specific tasks for up to three years. This makes them repeat offenders when it comes to home invasions or garbage scavenging along the Front Range. If you start to hear scratching noises coming from the attic or your home’s walls, it may be time to call a professional Colorado pest control service.
Squirrels are everywhere in Colorado, and these cute and fluffy critters can cause major problems in your home or office. In their natural environment, squirrels are great, but when they invade your home, it’s a totally different story. Like other rodents, squirrels have teeth that are constantly growing. If that’s not scary enough, these mammals are known for looking for objects to chew and grind their sharp teeth on.
Squirrels are known to build nests virtually anywhere, and they like to chew openings through your house siding. They also like to chew through unscreened chimneys and vents. If you have a garden in the backyard, it’s important to take preventative measures to keep squirrels out of your yard. This is because these little critters can cause severe damage to your plants and landscape, and they love to dig in lawns for nuts and other goodies. Keep an eye out for squirrels in the following areas:
- Your attic – Squirrels love to make nests in attics because they know they won’t be bothered. If you’re concerned you have squirrel infestation in your home, contact our wildlife control experts today.
- The chimney – Believe it or not, squirrels love to get into your home by way of the chimney.
- Your garden or flower bed – Squirrels love to munch on vegetation, and your personal garden may just be their favorite restaurant in town.
If you suspect that squirrels have made their way into your home or building, contact Colorado Pest Management today. We offer an effective squirrel control and exclusion program that will prevent these cute little pests from doing further damage to your property.
Rats learned long ago to adapt themselves to human habitation by colonising cities or other areas where people congregate together. Though you will see small numbers of them in locations where other rodents are commonly found on the Front Range, such as fields or forests, heavily populated areas in Colorado are a different story. Anywhere there is a human population that has easy access to food, water, and shelter, rats will be there too, and in large numbers at that.
Norway rats (also called brown rats), the most prevalent species of rat in Colorado, love to nest in areas where people dump their refuse and clutter. Wood piles, trash dumps, and salvage yards are all prime nesting locations for rats. In addition, they will often choose to nest in places that are close to sources of food or water like restaurants, grocery stores, and sewage systems. If you live in an urban area and are hearing scratching and squeaking inside your walls or in the ceiling, chances are good that a colony of rats has invaded your space.
Colorado Pest Management has an extensive rat control program that will mitigate the damage from rats and other rodents. Give us a call today if you need help with these pervasive pests!
