These recent warm weather changes are guaranteed to bring out the local nuisance wildlife in your area. So be sure your home is protected against destructive animals before it’s too late. Continue reading to learn exactly what you need to do to stop nuisance wildlife from damaging your property.
Nuisance wildlife, such as raccoons, bats, skunks, squirrels, moles, and opossum, can cause a long list of structural damages to the inside and outside of your home. They can also pose a long list of safety hazards and health risks, such as viruses, diseases, parasites, and more. Nuisance animals are not something you want on your property, so it is necessary to do what it takes to ensure your house is protected against such damages. Your duties will include environmental modifications, inspections, and professional assistance.
Your first step to thwarting nuisance wildlife activity on your property is to make all the necessary and recommended environmental changes. Such modifications will reduce your property’s appeal to nuisance animals, like raccoons, squirrels, and opossum. To accomplish this, remove all food and water sources that are outside of your house. This includes pet bowls, animal food, bird baths, koi ponds, and even garbage.
It is important to always take your garbage out on trash collection day, and never leave it outside, overnight. If you must leave your garbage receptacles outside, use lid locks to discourage access. Furthermore, you will need to secure any outdoor gardens you will have growing, but this can wait until yields begin to turn come spring.
Property Inspection and Sealing
Animals can find ways inside the house, if such access points exists. Bats can squeeze through an opening as little as 3/8ths of an inch, which means access points are bound to exist somewhere. It is vital to have your home inspected for such vulnerabilities, especially if your home has not had any work done to it for several years. Areas like crumbling mortar, rotted siding, loose roof shingles, torn screens, and more, are all possible access points for nuisance wildlife.
A professional Michigan wildlife control company can provide a full-property inspection and seal up any openings or vulnerable spots. Have this service done before spring emerges to ensure your house is fully-protected against costly animal damages.
