Critter Prevention Tips For Homeowners

Preventing critters from coming into your home is the first step. While wildlife repellents work on some animals, they can be unsafe to pets and family members. You may need to take several additional measures to control them from entering the yard or home. Luckily, preventing critters from entering can be simpler than you think.

  • First, remove any overgrown brush that critters may be able to hide in or build a nest with.
  • Now, ensure no food sources attract them, like pet food left on the porch, bird feeders, or fruit fallen from trees on the ground.
  • Cover trash cans with tight fitting lids.
  • Fence the yard with a tall fence to keep out larger wildlife.
  • Keep limbs trimmed and away from the roof line.
  • Store firewood off the ground.
  • Cover entries such as the chimney, gutters, downspouts, and vents.
  • Finally, ensure the structure of your home is free of any damage, like small cracks or openings that could be used as entry points.

The best thing to do is to call Wild Thingz to inspect the yard and house and recommend a plan to critter control your personal spaces.
