Columbus GA Wildlife Information

Georgia Wildlife Commission: 706-557-3213

Georgia Game WardenIf you have any questions about the wildlife of Columbus, you can contact the Georgia Wildlife Commission, sometimes called the Georgia Fish & Wildlife Agency. Georgia game wardens address many wildlife management matters, from hunting licenses, to poaching, endangered species, and Columbus 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 Columbus 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 Columbus Wildlife Removal Pro at 706-405-2404.

I also have listed several sources for free Columbus wildlife help. One example, if you've found an injured animal or lost baby bird or other baby animal is the Columbus Wildlife Rehabilitation Clinic: 706-569-6040 Or just read below for more info about the wild animals of Columbus.

Georgia is a very hot, humid state, even in the regions of the north where mountains dot the landscape. It is full of lush vegetation, and has a variety of habitats. This state not only has tall, majestic forests, it also has Okefenokee Swamp, a 438,000 acre wetland on the Georgia-Florida border. As you might imagine, this swamp is home to a variety of creatures. These creatures, however, aren't just reptiles and amphibians. The marsh is made up of both wet and dry land, and mammals abound within its protected space. Okefenokee Swamp has black bears, white-tailed deer, and otters. It does, of course, have its fair share of water moccasin snakes, alligators, and turtles.

The rest of Georgia is also full of animals, and because the weather is so warm all year long, there is an abundance of reptiles and cold-blooded creatures not found in the northern states. Warm weather is also ideal for birds, and these birds can range in size from small robins to giant creatures with 8-foot wingspans.

Common pest animals in Georgia include armadillos, black bears, beavers, geese, coyotes, deer, wild hogs, rats, raccoons, squirrels, woodpeckers, and foxes. Not only do these animals enjoy what the warm temperatures have to offer as far as comfort, many of them live on the eggs and offspring from the array of reptiles, birds, and amphibians. Raccoons, in particular, are known to be raiders of nests in the hunt for eggs.

While there is an abundance of food year round for the creatures in this state, the human population of Georgia is so dense, contact with animals is inevitable. As people spread out into the wilds, animals find new ways to come by easy meals and easy shelter. Raccoons won't hesitate to leave the woods in favor of an attic when breeding season comes around, and all pest animals make special note of the homes that have garbage or food lying around outside.

In a state like Georgia, having small pest animals in the yard can eventually draw in larger predators. People living near bodies of water where alligators reside will regret having a plethora of small mammals lounging around the yard. It won't take long be the gator makes a mental note about where to get an easy meal.

Columbus Wildlife Tip
When You Find A Rodent Chew Hole, House Repair Is In Order - Every home owner will do a visual inspection of his house once or more times a year. Sometimes it is easy to see if a rainspout has detached or shingles came off the roof. There are many damages to your home that are not as obvious. When little animals try to get into your home, they often find one tiny weak spot and go to work on that. It is truly amazing how small of an opening these critters can use to get in and out. It pays to be vigilant about your house. If you notice animals that seem to take the same route toward your house all the time, you may want to check your foundation. When you are done inspecting that; then check under your roof.

When you see a rodent chew a hole, house maintenance is a must. Look for additional holes. You may want to get a ladder and check under the eaves of your house to find an entry hole. If you only find the one chew hole, your job of repairing it is not so difficult. However, the much harder part is to get a rodent out when it has already made its home in your attic.

Also in its second year is the requirement that landowners obtain printed permits in place of the informal "farm tags" they used prior to 2004. Formerly, those who owned at least five contiguous acres could trap without a permit and tag their game with hand-written notes. Snakes and coyotes are not all mean.

Starting last year, the Conservation Department issued free landowner raccoon, opossum & squirrel and turkey permits through permit vendors statewide. To obtain the permits landowners need to know how much acreage they own and in what county or counties. For more on Columbus wildlife, read on.
