Many homeowners throughout Canada see spring as a welcome opportunity to enjoy the warmer weather by spending more time outside. However, this is also true of many species of urban wildlife that exist in countless communities. Spring is the mating and birthing season for many species of wildlife and this causes conflicts with humans. City dwelling animals make a habit of denning and nesting inside porches, chimneys, and attics, which for many homeowners creates the need for professional wild animal removal services.
Wild Animal Removal: Infestation Prevention Tips
Among the many activities, you can perform to safeguard against suffering a wildlife infestation in your home or property, performing spring cleaning around your garden and yard is most helpful. These activities can include:
● Removing food sources
● Trimming branches and trees
● Cleaning your gutters
Removing Food Sources
Remember that your property appears attractive to wildlife if you have bird seed, pet food and unsecured garbage scattered around. If this is the case, critters are not just attracted to your property by free meals, but also because available food causes them to nest and make dens inside your home. Regardless of having a birdfeeder that you might have put out to attract blue jays and cardinals, you will likely attract rats and mice as well.
Trimming Branches And Trees
Wild animal removal services are something you will definitely need if you have trees in your yard with branches that are making contact with your home. Keep in mind that pests like mice, raccoons, and squirrels use vines, branches and trees as paths to access your roof and house. If you don’t regularly trim branches and trees on your property, vegetation can make problems harder to see, keep your roof wet and create damage on roofing materials.
Cleaning The Gutters
When it comes to the causes of roof rot and water damage around a property, clogged gutters are a notoriously frequent culprit. The best possible way to extend the life of your roof is to periodically remove debris and leaves from your eaves. Such activities will allow water to flow freely and prevent many weaknesses that critters can use to gain access to the inside of your attic.
