Typical wildlife affecting homes in Haywood, Transylvania, Jackson, Clay, and Cherokee are typically the animals you would find in the national forests. Animals have the same basic needs as humans– food, water, and shelter. They enter a home looking for resources to satisfying those basic needs. Some of the most common nuisance wildlife in Wester North Carolina are raccoons, bats, woodpeckers, rodents, squirrels, flying squirrels, and snakes.
Common Wildlife in Waynesville
Raccoons inhabit all parts of the state, tend to stay near a reliable source of water, and are comfortable in urban areas. Raccoons can wreak havoc trying to gain entry to your home and cause significant damage creating a den in your attic. They can cause a mess of garbage and destroy home gardens and birdfeeders. Because they are nocturnal, you’ll most likely hear a loud thumbing at night if you have an attic.
Live trapping is the most common removal technique and exclusion techniques include securing food sources and closing any entry points.
Squirrels nest in attics and vents if they’re able to access the home. You’re most likely to hear a squirrel family in your home in early spring and early fall.
Squirrels are active during the day so you might hear squealing, running, or gnawing early in the morning. Squirrels’ teeth never stop growing so they constantly gnaw and chew damaging attic insulation, fraying electrical wire, and destroying house structures.
Squirrels can impact your quality of life. They are active from dawn to dusk. The most common sign of squirrels is the sound of scurrying early in the morning.
Bats in the attic, or elsewhere in your home, can be a particularly troublesome nuisance. Not only do they make a lot of noise, but their nests and droppings can negatively affect your health and the health of your family.
Bat guano is the surest sign you have bats and the greatest risk to your health. A large accumulation of guano can lead to structural issues and spread two fungal diseases.
