Pest & Wildlife Pressure in Greenville and Spartanburg
Coyotes in Greenville and Spartanburg
Coyotes can live almost anywhere. However, temperate zones like the Greenville-Spartanburg, SC, region are a favorite of these predators. The pests often venture into yards when they smell prey, trash, or food scraps.
A coyote usually avoids contact with people, but attacks do occur. Small cats and dogs left unattended may be at risk in areas where food sources are scarce. Coyotes are also rabies carriers that can spread the virus to pets and humans through bites or scratches.
While these pests may hiss and seem threatening if cornered, they are unlikely to cause any harm. Opossum problems in South Carolina often stem from unsecured garbage, which lures the animals near homes. Fleas and ticks from opossums can transmit diseases to pets.
Wild pigs are another nuisance in the Greenville-Spartanburg area. These animals disturb turf and landscaping while rooting for food and damage fence posts and trees when they rub against them. A wild pig can also carry swine brucellosis, which affects both humans and animals.
