Wildlife Problems in North Charleston, SC

Bordered by two rivers with the state capital just to the south, North Charleston, SC, combines several factors that lead to wildlife issues. Access to water often attracts animals to populated areas. Once they adapt to suburban and urban areas, some pests learn to find shelter and food around yards and houses.

Raccoon Health Risks

Especially common near water, raccoons have adapted well to North Charleston. Residents often spot them rummaging through trash at dusk and may even hear scratching and thumping sounds overhead if the pests move into attics. Since the raccoon is one of the state's main rabies carriers, one living near or in the house is cause for concern.

Squirrel Woes

A backyard offers plenty of resources that attract a squirrel. These pests strip the bark from trees, eat nuts, raid bird feeders, and steal fruit or buds from gardens. Local gray and fox squirrels are scatter hoarders as well, which means they dig multiple holes in lawns to store food for winter.

Bat Problems

As a natural predator of mosquitoes, North Charleston bats can be a big help to residents of this muggy city. However, a bat colony living in a house or shed presents a risky situation for people. In addition to acting as a rabies vector, the animals create unsanitary conditions with their waste.

More North Charleston Wildlife

Other South Carolina outdoor pests include skunks and opossums. Like a bat or a raccoon, a skunk can pass the rabies virus to humans through bites or scratches. These animals also dig in lawns and leave behind a foul odor. An opossum may be a nuisance outside, too. Their highly varied diet means the pests find many things to eat in yards, from garden fruit to compost.
