Wildlife Management Tips: Taking Preventive Measures

Wildlife Management Can Prevent Raccoons

A big part of wildlife management is prevention. If you take the proper preventive measures, you can greatly reduce your chance of nuisance animals getting into your home and yard. There isn’t necessarily a fail-safe method to keeping out all animals, but you can at least greatly discourage them from trying. Animals are opportunistic, so if you give them an easy opportunity, they’ll take it. Use some of these expert Animal Remover tips to maximize your wildlife management systems.

Keeping Animals Out of Your House

Probably the last place you want unwanted animals to go is inside the house. Attics are popular for rodents, birds, bats, and squirrels. The rest of your house is a haven for mice as well. The first thing you’ll want to do is inspect the exterior of your house for any small or large holes. This is the easiest way of entry for most animals. Make sure you plug any holes that you find. If you have a chimney, you should strongly consider a chimney cap. The chimney is an easy point of entry for many animals. Animal Remover offers property sealing and chimney cap services for your convenience. Utilizing these services is the best thing you can do for your wildlife management in your house.

Your Yard

Unfortunately, keeping animals out of your yard is a bit more difficult. The absolute best thing you can do is build a tall fence. Even better, build a fence that goes below the ground slightly. This will help to prevent burrowing animals. Other than that, your best option is to not leave out things that would encourage animals to visit your yard, such as pet food.

Your Trash

Animals, especially raccoons, find your trash especially appealing. If you’re not preventing animals from getting into your trash, they may be encouraged to visit more often and explore further. There are a number of things you can do to prevent animals from getting into your trash. The best thing you can do is get a trash can that seals properly. If you make your trash hard to get into, animals will be discouraged and give up.
