Greensboro NC Wildlife Information

North Carolina Wildlife Commission: 919-707-4011

North Carolina Game WardenIf you have any questions about the wildlife of Greensboro, you can contact the North Carolina Wildlife Commission, sometimes called the North Carolina Fish & Wildlife Agency. North Carolina game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and Greensboro wildlife management. They deal with wild animals outside the range of a pest control company, such as cougars or bears. If you have a problem with nuisance wildlife in Greensboro like squirrels, snakes, bats, or raccoons, the state agency is very unlikely to help. You need to hire a private company (here are their prices) such as TruTech Wildlife Service at 336-310-0879.

I also have listed several sources for free Greensboro wildlife help. One example, if you've found an injured animal or lost baby bird or other baby animal is the Greensboro Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 336-674-5561 Or just read below for more info about the wild animals of Greensboro.

Types of Wildlife and Animal Problems in Greensboro, NC

State mammal: Gray squirrel
State reptile: Eastern box turtle
State fish: Channel bass
State insect: European honeybee

North Carolina is a coastal state with three distinct climate zones. The beaches lead into a flat, grassy section of the state, which eventually transitions into foothills with tall forests. This transitional area then flows into the Appalachian Mountains. Like most coastal states, North Carolina has a diverse population of wildlife. Not only are there land-loving animals, there are a variety of creatures associated with the ocean. Beaches on the Atlantic Ocean are not as loaded with large marine life like on the West Coast, but there is a fair share of creatures that make daily appearances on the beach. Jellyfish, though not able to live outside of the water, frequently wash up on shore. These animals can sting even when dead, making their cleanup off the coast essential to the tourist trade. The coasts are a popular vacation destination, and seagulls harass tourists relentlessly, being so bold as to steal food directly from people's hands.

The foothills and mountains further inland have a different animal dynamic. Here, the largest predators are the coyote and the black bear. These animals are relatively reclusive, though bears have been known to saunter into yards for the purpose of destroying birdfeeders or picking through garbage cans. For the most part, a bear won't live in your yard, though it will keep coming back until you stop supplying it with food. Coyotes are a different issue. In the country they are not terribly problematic. Urban coyotes, that have been forced to live in close quarters with people, will stalk pets and small children even in fenced yards.

North Carolina has a small population of wild horses called Banker horses. These short, stocky equines are descendants from Spanish breeds brought over to the early America. The horses are allowed to roam as they please, and they are isolated to just the Outer Banks, islands of the North Carolina coast.

While wild horses are rare on this side of the United States, North Carolina has the same pest animals as most of the other regions in the country. People in the state are plagued by the presence of rodents in the home. Rats, mice, and squirrels are all common invaders. Raccoons and porcupines also make their presence known, and it's not unheard of to have a skunk living under the shed.

Greensboro Wildlife Tip
Since Rodents Moved Into the Attic, My Loft Insulation Has Been Chewed Into Small Piecies - It is the nature of rodents to chew and to chew and to chew. Nothing is safe from their razor sharp incisors. Nature intended for them to have very sharp teeth to open up the hardest nuts for nourishment. They also use their teeth for defense if necessary. If they fail to keep their teeth worn down to a certain length, they are doomed. Without being able to feed themselves properly, rodents cannot survive. Instinct makes them chew on whatever is handy. They also use whatever is handy when they make nests for birthing their young. Insulation is quite soft and warm to keep rodent babies happy.

If you say to yourself that "my loft insulation has been chewed into small pieces" and wonder what you can do about it, you are probably already facing the problem of baby rodents being in your attic along with their mother. You can get live traps that hold more than one rodent or you can set up several traps next to each other and in the rest of the attic. Bait them well with peanut butter and then wait. Check the traps once every day and when you have them trapped; take them to a location several miles from your home. Let mother and babies go to find a new home.

Wildlife - Giving shelter to Greensboro Animals

Area "birders" already know that this is the place to go with orphaned or injured birds or animals. Raccoon Zoo takes in significantly increased than 600 animals each year, nursing them to health, then returning them to their home environments. Hooray for wild creatures and critters!

Animals are brought in by the North Carolina Department of Natural Resources, Guilford County Animal Services, veterinary offices and area residents. For more on Greensboro wildlife, read on.

Snake woman and Steve The Woodchuck Guy make it happen entirely through volunteers and donations. The facility always welcomes gifts of time, supplies or money. Volunteers need only a love of animals and the ability to take direction. Training will be provided. Snakes and coyotes are not all mean.

Volunteering at Raccoon Zoo satisfies the community-service graduation requirement for North Carolina high schools. Scouts can fulfill badges through volunteering. A seventh Boy Camper-Pamper is working toward Eagle badge completion now. Remember to treat the wild animals of Greensboro, North Carolina, with respect and care.

Among the things that I have become in my life, I am a wildlife trapper. I am a 40-year-old man. I am a husband and I am son. But above all those, more important than anything, I am a father. And the critter capture kid is a boy, a little boy at that, and my boy. I got down, helped him from his stand, and held his hand as we walked across the field for home. I asked him, trying to ease his thoughts, if he wanted to go to the Food Mart for an ice cream, it was only a quarter to six and there was plenty of time. On the deck at the store, wearing our animal exterminating clothes and watching traffic go by, the ice cream worked its magic. Continued next week ...Greensboro Wildlife.
