Evolution in Urban Life

Wild animals exist within even the densest of human civilizations. The urban jungle is swarming with life; and a lot of it isn’t bipedal. Raccoons, squirrels, rats, and other creatures co-exist with us in our cities and towns. But what does life on the mean streets of New York City do to these animals? A new study published in Science Magazine looked into the effects of cities on animals that are commonly found in urban locations. The results show that these animals are adapting and evolving. Roaches, raccoons, squirrels, lice, and more; are all changing. Each new generation is adapting more and more to the environment. The result of this adaptation is incredible resilience.

As in any ecosystem, those most suited for the environment will continue to live on. This allows the species to survive and thrive. Rats smart enough to avoid traps may pass on that intelligence. Raccoons strong enough to open dumpsters have more access to food. Roaches that are unaffected by a bug bomb can give way to new generations of resistant broods. While our society continues to advance and grow, so does the overall species of those animals that we share the streets with. We specialize in removing squirrels, raccoons, and other pests in the New York New Jersey area.
