Raleigh Pest Pressure

The well-populated capital city of Raleigh, NC, attracts both people and wildlife pests such as raccoons and skunks. Raccoons are best known for their connection to the rabies virus, though they also commonly carry a parasite known as raccoon roundworm. Additionally, they break into homes and cause a lot of destruction by raiding garbage bins for food and pulling siding off houses. Skunks mostly stay outdoors but dig holes in yards looking for insects, which ruins landscaping and makes lawn care difficult. The pests also spray a malodorous liquid when they feel threatened.

Bats and rodents are common in and around Raleigh, as well. Nesting in attics, sheds, and other dark areas, bats sometimes frighten residents with their presence. The flying pests are also capable of carrying rabies and contribute to the spread of histoplasmosis. Rats and mice break into houses via very small openings in building exteriors and wreak havoc all over homes. In addition to spreading disease, rodents contaminate food, gnaw on electrical wiring, make holes in walls bigger, and defecate and urinate on personal property.

Q&A with your local branch manager:

What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?

Human wildlife conflict is occurring at a greater rate due to the expansion of residential and commercial areas into wildlife habitat. The state of North Carolina is one of the fastest growing areas in the United States, causing an increased need for professional and educated wildlife specialist to manage these issues. Bats, squirrels, flying squirrels, raccoons, snakes, mice, rats, birds, opossum, beavers, foxes, coyotes, hornets, wasps, yellow jackets, and moles/voles are just a few of the common animals that can cause human wildlife conflict for businesses and homeowners in North Carolina.

Bats and birds can be dangerous to homeowners due to the buildup of their feces, known as guano. This guano can grow fungus and bacteria causing a number of zoonotic diseases transferable to humans. Squirrels, flying squirrels, mice, and rats not only spread disease in living and work spaces but also cause structural damage and chew electrical wires. Raccoons, foxes, bats, and skunks are known rabies vectors and can also cause serious structural damage. Trutech is a professional wildlife services company that has been in business since 1984. We are licensed and insured to resolve all human wildlife conflict throughout all of North Carolina.

How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?

All animals’ life cycles function around the seasons in North Carolina. It affects their breeding patterns, feeding habits, and need for shelter. During the winter squirrels, flying squirrels, raccoons, mice, and rats are known to gain entry into homes and businesses to seek shelter and give birth as winter moves into fall. During spring and summer bats and birds begin to roost in structures to give birth to their young. The warmer months of spring and summer also bring increased activity from snakes, hornets, wasps, yellow jackets, moles/voles, skunks, and ground hogs these animals take advantage of the warmer month to increase food intake and breed.

No matter what season we are in, North Carolina experiences human wildlife conflict year round. If it is suspected that any wildlife is gaining entry into a structure or coming in contact with people or pets, the best course of action is to contact Trutech wildlife services.
