Wildlife animals are becoming more in contact with the human population. Unfortunately, we are in need of their habitat so that we can provide homes to upcoming human population. As wildlife animals lose their home, they have to relocate and the majority of the time it is around your own property. Here are a few tips to assist you to solve wildlife problems and prevent reoccurring problems.
1. Do NOT feed wildlife animals. 2. Refrain from leaving any pet food outside and keep their outside feeding areas clean. 3. Place your outside trash cans inside until the morning of the trash pickup or utilize an animal proof container such as metal trashcans with latches on the lids. 4. Close up any openings that access underneath your home or building. 5. If you have reoccuring visits from raccoons or squirrels, ensure you refrain from using your outside bird feeder. This gives them access to food in which they will never leave. 6. Pick up any fallen fruit around any fruit trees. 7. Cut back any tree limbs from hanging close to your home. This gives them access to jump onto your home. 8. Talk to your neighbors and find out if they are having the same problems. Communicate with them the tips provided to keep them away.
