Young wildlife matures quickly. Within a few weeks, they go from tiny babies to curious explorers and can wreak havoc on your property.
The first day of spring is Sunday, which means warmer weather is just around the corner. Warmer temperature means the mating season is beginning, and litters of critters will soon be born. But what does wildlife baby season mean for pest problems? And what can you expect this spring?
First of all, don’t panic! Even if you hear unwanted visitors scurrying around on your roof, it doesn’t necessarily mean you have a nursery up there just yet. Critters like raccoons and squirrels have several months in which they give birth, some earlier in the season and some later. This means you can have them removed by a professional pest control company before you have complications caused by litters of young wildlife.
However, young wildlife matures quickly. They go from tiny babies to curious explorers within a few weeks. While they may not be able to live independently, this doesn’t prevent them from wreaking havoc on your home or property.

Nuisance Baby Wildlife
Baby animals are always cute, but they are also always trouble makers. Once they get big enough to start exploring, things get much worse. As soon as they are mobile, young animals begin to explore the world around them. This can, unfortunately, lead to all kinds of trouble. Because they are small, they may get stuck in areas too small for the mother to retrieve them. If they get lodged in voids, they will likely die and eventually cause an odor. This can necessitate cutting holes in walls to access and remove them.
If they survive, they might make their way into areas where they can access your home, such as walls, ceilings, attics, basements, and other places you don’t want them. Many of them can chew through drywall and any other material, wreaking havoc along the way.
Another common issue with young nuisance wildlife is that they often have group-mentality behavior. It only takes one brave member of the group to lead all their siblings into trouble. Therefore, when one member starts trouble, there’s likely to be more than just one. This can mean two, three, or even four times the problems, damage, and costs.
