Wildlife Problems in Johnson City and East Tennessee 

Johnson City, TN, has mild weather that allows wildlife to thrive as urban expansion causes viable habitats to shrink. As a result, pests such as squirrelssnakes, and coyotes enter residential areas in search of food and shelter. 


Tree squirrels are the most common species of squirrel in the area and typically get indoors through broken shingles or damaged vents. Once inside an attic, a tree squirrel may gnaw on wires and tear up insulation. The pests can also bring in fleas, ticks, and parasites when they den inside homes. 


When natural roosting spots become difficult to find, bat colonies may move into attics or outbuildings. These animals can transmit rabies through contact with their blood or saliva. Their teeth are also tiny, so bites often go unnoticed. Johnson City residents should avoid any attempts to handle or capture bats to prevent infection. 


Raccoons explore residential areas in Tennessee to find easy meals. Unsecured garbage cans, bird feeders, and pet bowls attract them to yards. These pests can also spread diseases like rabies and canine distemper as well as parasites like raccoon roundworm. 

Other Johnson City Nuisance Wildlife

Like raccoons, coyotes and snakes also cause issues for home and business owners in East Tennessee. While snakes can help control rodents in the area, several species including copperheads, cottonmouths, and rattlesnakes are venomous. Be sure to keep your lawn trimmed and clutter-free to discourage these reptiles from using your yard as shelter. 

Coyotes hunt mice and rats as well, but when food becomes scarce, they will also prey on outdoor cats. Though generally shy around humans, a coyote pack may fight and injure pet dogs if they view them as a threat or competition for territory.
