Active Wildlife Removal is proud to help the area surrounding Nashville with any wildlife problems that they might face. Despite being largely urban, the areas that surround Nashville are filled with wildlife. Because of how often the wildlife interacts with humans it is not uncommon for them to become accustomed to a human presence. Because of this, the animals are more likely to wander into our homes because they are used to the presence of humans.

Common Animals In Tennessee’s Urban Environment

As stated before, animals are a common nuisance in urban areas. But which animals create problems? Here is a short list of just a few of the animals that are known to cause problems in urban areas around Tennessee.

Bats are known to destroy the attic of homes if they manage to find themselves stuck in yours. Bats are a common animal in Tennessee due to the favorable conditions that Tennessee provides bats. This is, of course, a problem for homeowners. Though bats are more commonly found in rural parts of Tennessee, it’s still not surprising to see bats come into the urban parts of Tennessee.

Raccoons are well known to live in urban areas throughout the state. In big cities such as Nashville and the cities that surround it, raccoons are a major problem. This is even less surprising when you consider the fact that raccoons will eat just about anything, including trash. This, of course, means that raccoons will strive off the trash that’s found in big cities.

Squirrels are animals that you have almost certainly seen even if you just step into your backyard. Did you know that these animals could become a nuisance, though? That is right! Squirrels can occasionally end up inside of your attic or crawlspace. If a squirrel does manage to get inside of one of these locations, it can end up doing quite a bit of damage.

Rodents are animals that are common nuisances almost anywhere you go. As with raccoons, mice and rats are known for eating pretty much anything that they can find. They are also known for tearing apart the insulation and foundation of buildings to make their nests. Despite their small size, rodents can do quite a bit of damage to your home.

What Damage Can These Animals Do?

All of these animals cause damage in different ways. The most common theme when it comes to damage associated with animal infestations is the destruction of the insulation, wood, or wiring that surround a room that the animal wants to make their nest in. Here is a summary of what each animal might do to your home.

Bats are odd in the sense that they will not tear apart your home to make their nests. They will leave large amounts of waste on the floor of your attic. This creates a multitude of issues. For one, the smell itself is unbearable. Secondly, the feces from bats are known to increase the speed in which wood rots.

Raccoons are one of the most destructive pest animals out there. Raccoons will cause massive damage to your attic or crawlspace as they tear apart the lining of your walls to make their dens. This, of course, can be a major nuisance for any homeowner. No homeowner wants to deal with the aftermath of a raccoon infestation.

Squirrels are not known for causing major damage to a room but are known for tearing out the insulation and wall lining. They will also chew on the wires of your home, making them a major fire hazard. Squirrels are also a little harder to detect meaning that the damage they cause will accumulate over time.

Rodents are well known for causing a vast amount of damage for their small size. Rodents will chew through pretty much anything to get into another room or make travel for them more efficient. Rodents are known to tear apart room structures to make their nests. On top of that, rodents are also known to chew through wires. This also makes them a fire hazard. These animals are extremely common in urban environments.
