Wildlife Problems in Savannah, GA
As the oldest city in the state, Savannah, GA, has many beautiful historic houses with gaps and cracks that allow pests inside. However, even newer structures are not immune to infestations. With the city's humid, subtropical climate, several animals are abundant in area homes and yards all year.
In natural spaces, the big brown bat spends its days under loose tree bark or in rocky crevices. As cities expand and habitats shrink in Georgia, the animals sometimes roost inside attics, barns, and sheds as well. Mold that grows in bat droppings indoors may develop airborne spores that cause the disease histoplasmosis.
Raccoons den in garages, attic, and vacant buildings throughout Savannah. They typically hunt through the night for food and return to their nests before sunrise. A raccoon can transmit rabies as well as other dangerous diseases and parasites. People should avoid these pests, especially if they appear sick, weak, or aggressive.
A fox squirrel is a common sight in urban and suburban Savannah. The pests prefer yards with nuts and fruits. Since they dig numerous holes to save their food supply for winter, squirrels often harm lawns. These gifted climbers also gnaw at damaged roofing and chimneys to make their way into attic or crawl spaces.
Other Nuisance Wildlife
Armadillos create a number of issues in Savannah. Not only do these pests dig in lawns to find insects, they can also wander onto roads and cause accidents. Like the armadillo, a fox may spend time searching for food around Georgia backyards. Squirrels and other rodents bring foxes close to a home, which can result in dangerous conflicts with pets.
