Types of Knoxville Wildlife & Critter Control

Animals seek what they need to survive—food, water, and shelter—and they’ll instinctively find places that provide those key elements. Here are several species you may find in your Knoxville home.

This creature may seem harmless outside, but they can quickly become a real nuisance once they get into your home. They gnaw on electrical wires and build nests throughout the house. Squirrels can also carry unwanted diseases, bring fleas into your home, and wreak other kinds of havoc.

Outside, the adaptable raccoon might feed from your trash cans and damage gardens and landscaping. Once they get inside, they can damage the home's structure as well as pose health risks. Raccoons carry fleas, roundworms, and other parasites and can have rabies. 

Bats seek out high places like attics, chimneys, and porch ceilings; when they’re moving about, you might hear scratching or squeaking sounds. Otherwise, they’re usually pretty quiet. You can tell where they’ve been, though, because they leave behind large droppings that can cause home damage as they leak through drywall, harm ceilings, and ruin insulation. They can also trigger serious health issues.

Coming across snakes in or around your home can be unpleasant, but most species are harmless. Just in case: to ensure your safety, have our expert wildlife removal technicians remove them.

Possums can create havoc in attics. They climb well and, once they get inside, they leave behind large droppings that may contain parasites and pathogens. They’ll get into your garbage, steal pet food, and may even harass your pets.

Birdwatching is a wonderful hobby—as long as the songsters stay outside. Once they get inside, though, you’ll need to address the situation quickly. We use Bird B Gone, which includes netting, repellents, and other bird control products.

These rodents only need a tiny opening the size of a nickel to a quarter to access your home, and they often take advantage of those extremely small openings. Mice and roof rats pose health risks and can damage your home.

Each of these critters can behave in unpredictable ways and, as you invade their space, they can bite and otherwise lash out in aggressive manners.

  • Maintain your fence well, and make sure no entry points exist. 
  • Ensure that your crawl spaces and attic are dry, clean, and well-ventilated.
  • Clean up leftover food outside, including for your pets.
  • Caulk around windows, including basement ones.
  • Maintain your yard well, keeping it free from weeds and debris.
