While the cold brings countless mornings spent unearthing our cars and driveways from snow, this winter it also signals the return of some of our favourite activities. As we cozy up with our loved ones around the dinner table for the first time in a long time, the wildlife around us also return to their winter routines. Like us, urban wildlife must prepare for winter. Part of their preparation will include finding cozy shelter from the elements and that could lead them into your home’s attic, walls or crawl spaces.
Our urban wildlife friends experience the changing seasons and alter their daily routines to help them survive. Throughout late spring, summer, and early fall resources are plentiful, and wild animals spend most of their time outdoors scavenging for nesting materials and food. As the snow begins to fall, raccoons, skunks, squirrels and mice look for cozy places to hunker down. Given the choice between a tree hollow and a warm, safe attic, the choice for most critters is clear.
While they may go through periods of low activity, or enter into a deep slumber state known as “torpor”, most urban animals do not go into a complete hibernation during the colder months. In fact, raccoons will begin their mating season as early as January, birthing their first litters before winter officially melts into spring. The most common time of the year for wildlife break-ins is during the spring birthing season, which can unfortunately cause thousands of dollars in damage for homeowners.
