4 Things That Attract Wildlife
Areas Where Wildlife Can Be Problematic
When wildlife comes looking to get comfortable in your home or property, they’re generally searching for a few basic necessities: food, water, and warmth to escape from predators and raise their young. By cutting off access to your space, you can keep your home free from unwanted invaders.
- Basements & Crawlspaces
- Garages & Sheds
- Wood Piles
Seal Off Access Points
Animals don’t have much else to do besides seek out those hidden entry points into your home, and they will find any that exist. Make sure your property is properly sealed off from the outside, including everything from insulation in the attic to cracks in the foundation down below.
Don’t Leave Food Out
Food attracts hungry critters, and most wildlife won’t turn their nose up at a free meal - even if it’s in the garbage. Keep your area food-free and keep the temptation for critters to get comfy at a minimum.
Clean Your Outdoor Area
Rock piles, stacks of firewood, stumps, and other debris offer the perfect shelter for wildlife of all sizes, and when close enough to a home or building can make an easy hiding place for animals looking for a way inside. Keep your area clear and keep wildlife far from your home.
Eliminate Standing Water
If you notice pools of water gathering in areas of your home, chances are wildlife will as well - and they may want to stay for a drink. Investigate your hot water tank, sub-pump, refrigerator, and basement doors and windows to remove any puddles or standing water.
Look And Listen Often
If you suspect wildlife has gotten into your home, the first sign will likely be the noise they make setting up a nest or raising their young. Keep your eyes and ears open during peak seasons and check your home’s hidden spaces often, and take care of wildlife before they get comfortable.
Hire A Professional
Whether you’re dealing with a wildlife issue currently or you’re looking to prevent wildlife from ever getting inside in the first place, the best thing to do is to call a professional in a timely manner. That way, your chosen professional can remove the wildlife and keep it from coming back again.
