Problems with Wildlife in Johns Creek, GA

Waterways and heavily wooded neighborhoods in Johns Creek, GA, sustain many types of local wildlife. Unfortunately, this typically means pests throughout the city can come into conflict with people.

Johns Creek Squirrels

Johns Creek residents may encounter gray or fox squirrels. These pests are notorious for digging in lawns, eating from gardens, and nesting in homes. Since a squirrel carries mites, fleas, and ticks in its fur, having these animals indoors is dangerous.

Bat Species

Georgia is home to numerous species of bats as well. Little brown bats, one of the local varieties most likely to enter homes, can spread the rabies virus. These animals often cause enough trouble that homeowners require professional removal.

Urban Raccoons

Raccoons are comfortable living in Johns Creek neighborhoods. The pests burrow under porches to den and knock over trash cans while scrounging for food. Their proximity to people also comes with the threat of disease transmission, as they may carry rabies or raccoon roundworm.

Deer and Grazing

Deer eat the bark from trees in the winter and forage in gardens during the summer. They frequently wander through backyards to find food sources. In addition to ripping the leaves from vegetation, these pests carry deer ticks, the primary source of Lyme disease in Georgia.

Johns Creek Predators

Another problem with deer in yards is their potential to draw predators. Coyotes are one of the city's most common varieties. These pests can attack small pets and act aggressively towards people, making a coyote dangerous in residential areas.

Also found in Johns Creek, foxes generally go for smaller prey than deer. However, they will eat carrion when necessary. Since a fox can spread the rabies virus, it's always an issue when these animals den around yards, sheds, and homes.
