Whether they’re gathering food, building a shelter, or just passing through, animals leave signs when they’ve been on your property. If you’ve noticed that you’re having a wildlife problem, but you’re unsure what kind of wildlife is causing it, take a look at the pictures below. These photos of tracks, trails, markings, and scat can help you determine what animals are around your home or business.
Beavers can be found across the state of Pennsylvania. They typically live around bodies of water, including creeks, rivers, streams, and lakes. If you notice trees with teeth marks, large piles of sticks on or near the water, or areas of the bank that have been dug out, these are signs that beavers may be present.
Coyotes can be found across the state of Pennsylvania, though they are more commonly located in the north. They typically live in forested areas. If coyotes are around, you may notice tracks or scat like the pictures below.
Deer are a common animal in the state of Pennsylvania, and across North America as a whole. They leave several different signs of their presence: tracks, scat, rub marks on tree bark, distinctive eating patterns, and shed antlers.
Raccoons can be found across the state of Pennsylvania. Unlike other wildlife, raccoons have adapted well to living around people. They tend to live around bodies of water, along ridges, and in suburban areas. If you have raccoons living on your property, you may find signs in the form of tracks or scat like those pictured below.
In Pennsylvania, red foxes can be found statewide. They typically live around farm areas, marshes, and streams. They are primarily nocturnal animals. Signs of foxes nearby include tracks and scat.
Turkeys are native to North America and live all around Pennsylvania. Turkeys tend to live in forested areas and stay together in large flocks. They are known to make a large range of calls. If you have turkeys around your home or business, you may see tracks, scat, and eggs like the pictures below.
Voles are small, mouse-like rodents that live across the state of Pennsylvania. They tend to live around meadows, forests, and farmlands. Voles are known to burrow underground and leave trails like the ones pictured below.
