Common Pests in Johnson City, TN
More on pests in your area
Johnson City, TN, is home to a variety of pests, including termites and carpenter ants. Termites are the most destructive wood-eating insects in Tennessee and can be found locally year-round thanks to the temperate climate. The pests cause damage to homes by feeding on structure-supporting wood, as well as such areas as porches, posts, and siding. Carpenter ants can also harm area homes. By creating nests inside wood, the pests leave unsightly holes and weaken timber.
In addition, the Johnson City area's natural woodlands support large numbers of fleas and ticks. Residents or their pets can easily pick up the tiny pests on their skin, hair, or clothes as they pass through tall grasses or thick brush. Fleas can jump and ticks can crawl onto exposed areas of skin to feed on their host's blood. Once brought indoors, fleas may also hide in pet bedding, upholstery, or carpets, as well as being found on pets. Additionally, ticks are known to spread illnesses like Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever to humans and animals. While they are most active during warmer seasons, the pests are constant threats to the Johnson City area.
