Common Wildlife Issues in Jefferson, GA

Considering that much of Jefferson, GA, is rural or suburban, it's no wonder the city sees plenty of pests. People and animals living near each other can lead to a variety of conflicts in yards and homes. From property damage to the spread of illness, residents may run into several issues.

Raccoons and Public Safety

Raccoons pose a risk to humans when it comes to disease transmission. They're the most pervasive vector of the rabies virus in the state of Georgia. In addition, the pests can host raccoon roundworm eggs, which may spread to people or pets through contact with the animal's feces.

Destructive Bats

Since caves are their natural nesting spots, bats often look for similar shelters in Jefferson suburbs. Attics are popular sites for colonies. While searching for a path inside, the pests may exploit existing holes or damaged window screens. Indoors, their waste piles up, resulting in foul odors and costly damage.

The Trouble with Squirrels

Because squirrels are social animals, Georgia homeowners often notice large numbers of these pests in backyards. Females are protective of their babies and seek out safe places to give birth. As such, outdoor squirrel infestations can quickly become an indoor problem.

More Pest Concerns

Grazing space in Jefferson yards frequently attracts rabbits. Eastern cottontails will devour garden vegetables as well as flower shoots and tree bark. Rabbits can also draw predators, like foxes, to lawns. A fox hunting for a meal may not make a distinction between wildlife pests and small pets or livestock.
