What Wildlife Commonly Invade Homes?

Contrary to what many may think, there is a wide number of wildlife frequently found in Union County. These animal pests are prolific hunters and foragers and as such often embark upon human dwellings to find sustenance. 

Most of the time these creatures are searching for food sources that are easily accessible from the outside and inside of homes, such as:

  • Pet food
  • Garbage
  • And other items left out in the open

Other times, these animals may enter a home for shelter from bad weather or just to make a cozy den for their young. Regardless of why they are there, it is important to remove them quickly and safely so that they do not continue to cause damage or spread.

Here are the common wildlife you may encounter on your property:


Squirrels love living near humans as it provides easy access to food sources like bird feeders, pet food bowls, trash cans, and even gardens. They also often make their homes inside attics or other sheltered areas outside the home. 


Raccoons are nocturnal creatures who typically enter homes at night looking for food or shelter from bad weather. They have been known to damage roofs trying to get into an attic space where they will build nests for their young during birthing season. 


Groundhogs usually burrow under porches or decks but have also been known to dig up lawns and gardens in search of food. These large rodents are destructive and can cause serious damage if left unchecked. 


Bats may take up residence in attics, eaves, or other sheltered areas around your property. They often enter through gaps in walls or roofs, so it is important to check for potential entry points and seal them off with caulk or weather stripping. 


Birds such as starlings, house sparrows, and pigeons are often found in residential neighborhoods in Union County. They may nest around homes and buildings or even inside attics and other sheltered areas. 

These birds can cause a great deal of damage if left unchecked, as they can contaminate insulation with droppings and feathers, cause structural damage to buildings, spread diseases, and attract other pests like mites, fleas, and ticks.


Rat snakes, garter snakes, black rat snakes, and copperheads are commonly found in Union County. Although not all snakes are dangerous to humans, it's important to recognize that some varieties are venomous. 

For this reason, it is best practice to let a professional snake removal service handle any potential infestations on your property. A trained expert knows how to properly identify the type of snake present on the property and can safely remove them without causing harm or stress to the animal or humans involved. 


Known for using their sharp claws for digging through garbage cans in search of food sources, Opossums are nocturnal creatures who look for shelter such as attics or decks at night. 

Opossums also pose a risk of spreading diseases such as leptospirosis so it is important that they be removed quickly before they cause further damage or health risks. Professional wildlife control services know how to humanely trap opossums before relocating them back into their natural habitats in Union County - far away from your home!
