Wildlife Problems in Chattanooga, TN

Chattanooga, TN, is a hub for transit with several railroads and interstate highways passing through the city. Wherever there's a lot of activity and people, there's bound to be wildlife pests. A variety of animals can cause damage and health concerns when they live near residents.

Tennessee Bat Species

Over a dozen types of bats live in the state, though only a handful bring trouble for homeowners. These pests might take up residence in attics or barns at any time of year, forming summer roosts during warmer months and maternity colonies when the weather gets cold. Bats living around the house or yard increase homeowners' risk of contracting rabies.

Foraging Raccoons

As omnivores, raccoons can make a meal out of nearly anything. That's why they often rummage around in trash cans, leaving bins tipped over and garbage scattered across Chattanooga lawns. The pests even break into homes seeking food and shelter. Finding torn up siding and ripped off roof shingles may be a sign of a raccoon issue.

Squirrel Problems

Squirrels often move into Tennessee homes to give birth to young. The animal's chittering noises may get on people's nerves, and, more importantly, these pests can be a costly problem. A squirrel that gnaws on electrical wires in an attic might create fires and shorts. Those that tear insulation or gnaw holes in buildings may affect heating costs or result in water damage.

Local Predatory Pests

Thanks to Chattanooga's abundance of food and diverse terrain, large predators thrive in this city. Residents sometimes spot foxes hunting for food in their yards. These pests seek out small prey, like rabbits and squirrels, and can become a little too comfortable being near humans. A fox may attack if it feels threatened.

Coyote Concerns

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.

Hog Wild

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.
