Much like human beings, urban wildlife must prepare for the cold winter months ahead. Unfortunately, part of their preparation often leads them into your home’s attic, walls or crawl spaces as they seek shelter and warmth from the elements.
Throughout late spring, summer, and early autumn resources are plentiful, and local wildlife spend most of their time preparing for the cold month ahead by building their fat stores and stockpiling food. When the snow begins to fall, raccoons, skunks, squirrels and mice establish a warm and safe place to hunker down and build their nests. Given the choice between a tree hollow and a warm attic, the choice for most wildlife is clear.
Urban animals in our communities have adapted to find winter nesting locations inside our homes. Although they may go into hibernation, or enter into a deep slumber state known as “torpor”, they can still create a lot of damage inside the home. During their stay, wildlife will use your home as a bathroom, creating serious health concerns, trample insulation, and chew electrical wiring creating a fire hazard.
Most winter den sites become a birthing ground for babies once spring arrives. In fact, raccoons will begin their mating season as early as January, birthing their first litters before winter is officially over. The spring birthing season is the most common time of year for wildlife break-ins, as mothers look for a safe place to birth and raise their young, causing thousands of dollars in damage for homeowners.
