As the weather warms up in Alabama for the spring, you may start to notice more nature sounds from birds returning to the South after their annual migration. In addition to chirping birds, you may start to see critters like raccoons and groundhogs become more active. After such a long winter, these critters are ready to stretch their legs and start their search for food, a new shelter and a place to birth and raise their young. 

If you’re a homeowner, it’s important that you’re preparing your home for potential wildlife invasion this spring. Keep an eye out this spring for wildlife as they are becoming more active after hibernation and torpor.  

Bats  

While some bats are known to hibernate in the winter months, other species migrate to warmer regions until the winter weather passes. Regardless, when warm weather returns, you’re likely to see these winged critters flying around in the evening hours, searching for a meal or two. While it may be fun to watch these critters from afar, nobody wants to deal with bats in a more personal setting, like inside of an attic or the crawlspace of your home. Attics, especially those in suburban communities, are the perfect nesting area for bats. If you notice droppings, hear chirping sounds or notice bats flying around your house this spring, make sure you get in contact with a nuisance wildlife removal expert. 

Groundhogs  

Groundhogs are considered nuisance wildlife due to the level of destruction they can cause by burrowing. Burrows and tunnels caused by groundhogs can result in destruction to farm equipment, landscape and of course, your home structure. Since groundhogs cause subtle damage to your property and underneath your home––through various tunnel systems––it can be hard to pinpoint the exact extent of damage. It’s important to get groundhogs off your property as soon as you notice.   

Squirrels 

Although most squirrels don’t hibernate in the winter, they do spend an extended amount of time in their nests underground during colder months. Once spring rolls around, squirrels will leave their dens in search of food and a place to raise their young. While hunting for food, squirrels may find a way into your home through soffits or eaves and start nesting in your attic or crawlspace. If you notice scratching noises in your attic, see squirrel droppings in your garage or attic or smell a foul, urine smell coming from your space––you may have a squirrel problem.  

Snakes 

Since snakes are cold-blooded, they prefer warmer climates to help keep their bodies at the ideal temperature. During colder months, snakes stay in a state of hibernation called brumation. Brumation is a state of partial dormancy that helps snakes conserve energy in preparation for the coming spring season. Once warmer weather comes around and snakes become active again, it’s not uncommon to see snakes sunbathing in the street or climbing up the siding of your home. While seeing snakes sends shivers down a lot of people’s spines, it’s no time to panic. Go Pro Wildlife Removal is professionally apt to handle any species of snakes––venomous or non-venomous.
