This time of year is popularly known as baby season. The colder weather has passed, brighter colors are starting to make an appearance, plants are getting ready to bloom and babies are being born. During these months, mother raccoons, squirrels and many other mammals are either getting ready to have their babies or already have. Once they have had their babies, the next several weeks are spent childrearing, ensuring that their young is equipped with the right skills and training necessary to fend for themselves in the wild. Baby mammals are always a charming sight to see when admiring in the wild from afar – unfortunately in some cases what ends up happening is, the mother uses attics, garages etc. instead! While their fascinating appearances may awe and fool you, having wild mammals indoors can be quite disruptive and destructive. This problem however, can be avoided either by taking several precautions.
Being proactive can save you time, money, and hassle. A single raccoon on your property is one thing, but a family of raccoons or a bunch of squirrels running around your attic is definitely an increase of problems. In order to keep a family of wildlife from selecting your property as their new home, something that you can do on your own is to make your home as unappealing to them as possible. Because these mammals are looking for a habitable spaces that are dark, a reduced risk of encounters with humans or other predators and a possible food source, making these thing unavailable will discourage them from selecting your property.
Here are a couple things you can do to keep animals selecting your property as their new home
- Ensure that food is properly sealed to avoid attracting wildlife to your property
- Take notice of any holes, cracks or weak spots in the building structure that wildlife can use as an entry point
- Some wildlife species avoid bright lights and loud noise. If possible, you can use these as a method to deter wildlife from approaching your property
- Make sure that trash and waste is disposed of properly
