Pest & Wildlife Pressure in Chattanooga
Coyotes in Chattanooga, TN, enter yards to feed on garbage, pet food, and rodents. They make themselves comfortable near food sources, denning under porches and in ditches or storm drains. This brings the pests dangerously close to homes, as coyotes sometimes prey on dogs and cats.
A number of diseases can pass from a coyote to a pet, including mange, distemper, and rabies. Chattanooga coyotes also bring lice and fleas near homes, which may find their way indoors.
Wild hog damage costs property owners millions of dollars each year in Tennessee. These pests raze crops, dig up lawns, and contaminate fresh water with their urine and waste. Wild hogs are opportunistic eaters that often enter Chattanooga yards in search of food. Almost anything from trash to garden vegetables may attract them.
These pests create muddy wallows and root for insects in yards, damaging grass, plants, and topsoil in the process. Wild hogs give birth multiple times each year, so their populations can increase rapidly. In addition, many diseases and parasites can spread from wild hogs to people, livestock, and pets.
