Wildlife Issues in Dunwoody, GA

Dunwoody, GA, experiences above-average rainfall and relatively warm weather for most of the year. The region is a popular place for nuisance wildlife such as squirrels and armadillos. Residents may deal with these animals in their lawns and parks, or even inside their homes.

Squirrel Problems

These pests enter Dunwoody yards looking for birdseed, nuts, and garden plants. When searching for shelter, they sometimes end up in attics or chimneys. Squirrels build nests in these spaces to care for their young, though they often bring parasites indoors or damage homes and belongings in the process.

In attics, squirrels will rip up insulation to use as nesting material. Like all rodents, these pests also gnaw on wood, plastic, and wires to keep the length of their teeth in check. Damage to wiring is especially dangerous due to the threat of electrical shorts and house fires.

Armadillos in North Georgia

While previously found in southern Georgia, armadillo populations are expanding northward. Damage occurs in neighborhoods as well as public land. The pests dig up yards, gardens, flowerbeds, and golf course greens throughout Dunwoody. Armadillos can also carry and transmit diseases like leprosy to humans.
