You have invested a lot of money in your home. You want a nice place for your family to live and a safe place for your pets to play. The last thing you want to do is share that space with uninvited guests. If those ‘guests’ have fur or feathers, you can always give us a call. However, we also recommend preventative measures to avoid needing to call us in the first place.

Wildlife Prevention: Keeping Wildlife in the Wild

Use these wildlife prevention tips to keep the wild animals outside where they belong.

  • Keep Your Yard Tidy – Animals love places to hide. Any leaf piles, overgrown bushes, and other such things are inviting to them. Keep your yard clean and tidy and the animals will be likely to keep looking elsewhere.
  • Keep Food Contained – Make sure the food in and around your house is well contained, so the animals aren’t drawn in toward it. If you get crumbs on the floor, that’s okay—just clean them up! If you eat outside, great! Just clean any food waste up and seal it in a trash can with a tight lid.
  • Let Dogs Be Dogs – Dogs are great deterrents. If you have dogs, let them chase the squirrels and other pests. They’ll stay farther from the house and will be less likely to come anywhere near the inside. Dogs make great companions and also act as a great wildlife prevention tool.
  • Get Pest Inspections – Pest control professionals can inspect your home and let you know where you might have small holes and openings that invite pests into your home. They can fill those holes.
