Many species of wildlife do not cause damage in the traditional sense but can be considered nuisances merely by their presence in a particular location. Wildlife which cross roads, nest and feed in and around homes, make noise, and leave their droppings are common occurrences which can often interrupt everyday life. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission provides guidance to property owners to aid them in solving problems associated with "nuisance" wildlife.
