Living with Wildlife in Arizona
People who live in or visit Arizona can expect to see many species of
wildlife. More and more often though, wild animals are venturing into
areas where people live. Sometimes the wildlife becomes a problem,
either by hammering on the side of the house, digging a den under the
front porch, or eating all of your brand new landscaping plants. You can
usually enjoy wildlife watching from a distance, but sometimes wildlife
encounters involve conflict.
Preventing problems with wildlife is much simpler and less aggravating
than dealing with the problems after they occur. Fortunately, taking a
few simple steps can help you prevent many of the most common
wildlife-related problems around your home. A number of proven methods
can be used to solve the problem when it cannot be prevented. These web
pages were developed to provide residents of Arizona with information
about how to coexist with Arizona’s wildlife, especially in urban areas.
