Pest & Wildlife Pressure in the Triangle Area

The Triangle

The Triangle of North Carolina belongs to the Piedmont region, which is rich with streams, woodlands, fields, and rocky outcrops. The natural landscape promotes animal diversity, especially for reptiles and birds.

Piedmont Birds

In large numbers, birds such as the Canada goose and wild turkey can cause problems for Triangle residents. Canada geese dine on grass, seeds, and aquatic plants. While some of these birds leave for the winter, the local non-migrant population is growing. The pests overgraze lawns and leave behind large amounts of droppings and feathers.

Wild turkeys inhabit forests and open fields. These pests can be noisy neighbors, as males make booming sounds during the spring to attract mates. Wild turkeys may also damage garden crops or even become hostile towards people and pets during mating season.

Reptiles in the Triangle

Cottonmouths and corn snakes live in the Triangle region of North Carolina as well. Also known as water moccasins, cottonmouths are venomous snakes that grow up to six feet long. Corn snakes, on the other hand, are harmless and one of the area's most colorful species. Both snakes usually flee from humans, but will bite if cornered.
