Nuisance Wildlife in Middle Tennessee
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.
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 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.
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.
Rodents in the home
Mice create problems for Tennessee residents by burrowing in lawns and nibbling on garden plants. A mouse seeking a warm place to nest may enter a house through cracks in the foundation. Rodents host fleas and bacteria that can result in illness.
Opossums in the Yard
The opossum is another adaptable animal in Tennessee cities. A nocturnal scavenger, this pest combs through yards for carrion, fruit, and nuts. Opossums can bite or scratch if threatened, so residents should avoid contact with these animals.
Local Predatory Pests
Thanks to the 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.
Coyotes in Tennessee, 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. 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 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.
