Winter is Back!
As Canadians, we are often defined by our coldest season. Skiing, skating and shoveling snow are just some of the activities that we can expect to experience this time of year. But what about the animals that live in our communities, what will they be up to this winter?
During much of the year, when food and nesting material are more plentiful, urban wildlife species spend a significant portion of their time outdoors. As winter sets in, sub-zero temperatures and thick blankets of snow serve to keep raccoons, squirrels, skunks and mice inside their winter den sites for more extended periods. Given the option of riding out a Canadian winter inside a tree hollow or setting up inside a cozy attic, the choice for most critters is clear.
While excursions through the neighbourhood are curtailed, none of the animals listed previously go into complete winter hibernation. In fact, raccoons, squirrels and skunks will begin mating in January and February. That’s not fighting you’re hearing up there and by spring the babies will have arrived potentially causing thousands of dollars in home damage.
Fortunately, you can trust Skedaddle to make it right. After our thorough process is complete, we will have humanely removed the wildlife from your home, cleared and repaired any damage, and protected your home from future unwanted animal visitors.
