Raccoons, trash pandas, ringtails, masked bandits... whatever you call these omnivorous creatures, they are one of the best adapted species to coexistence with humans. As a result, they come into conflict with people and their property more than any other animal in Indiana.
As they are adapted to coexistence with human civilization, squirrels often find themselves inside people's homes much like raccoons do. While they don't have the raccoon's tendency for digging through the trash, their intrusions in homes can be quite destructive.
Also known as groundhogs or whistlepigs, woodchucks are a constant presence on the landscape of Indiana. While they do come into conflict with people over gardens and landscaping, they are most destructive with their burrowing habits.
Moles are well populated across Indiana's fertile farmlands and forests. Burrowing and raising young most often in wooded areas, they are a frequent nuisance in people's lawns where they "swim" through the sod looking for their prey: worms and insect larvae.
The smelly third leg of Indiana's nuisance trio, skunks are best known for their incredible defense mechanism of spraying when cornered. Omnivorous scavengers, they often are found using active or inactive woodchuck burrows, as well as hiding beneath sheds.
