Keeping Wild Animals Out of Your Home
Changing human behaviors can also be a very effective means to humanely move an animal from one area to another. We humans have habits that can sometimes attract animals. For instance, not firmly sealing garbage cans can be a very enticing attractant for animals. When cold months begin the smell of our garbage can attract hungry critters. To keep them away, simply seal the can tighter and be sure nothing is left outside of the can.
Some people leave pet food out on decks and porches. While our pooch or kitty may love this, so do wild animals. To keep unwanted critters from wandering into living areas keep pet food inside.This will deter wildlife from wandering where domesticated animals live and play. This can help to prevent harm to both pets, humans, and wildlife.
Once the animal has been removed, be sure the issue has been completely eradicated. The removal specialist should assess whether or not the immediate issue has been eradicated or if the long-term outcome has been attained. Simply getting the animal out of an attic or outbuilding is not sufficient.
Make sure any openings are closed, and that steps have been taken to assure that the animal does not have ready access to a new opening or break. Making sure that a long-term outcome has been reached is not just good for the animal, it is also in the best interest of the people involved. Make sure that repellents are used, fences are secure and that anything that may attract wildlife to the dwelling has been removed.
