Life in Bowmanville: How To Deal With Wild Animals On Your Property

When it comes to lovely places to live in Ontario, Bowmanville is certainly right at the top. Its location right on Lake Ontario makes it a beautiful place to spend time, work, live and enjoy the outdoors. But, there is also another side to its intimate connection with nature – while there are plenty of non-nuisance wildlife present throughout the area, some wildlife species that cause problems for homeowners are also mixed in. This is almost to be expected due to the city’s connection to the rural areas surrounding it, but that doesn’t change the fact that professional wildlife control in Bowmanville is becoming more common lately.

Sometimes further north, you may encounter fox on your property.

Why Are Urban Areas like Bowmanville so Attractive for Wildlife?

There are three basic elements that attract wildlife to Bowmanville, they are:

  • Shelter
  • Space
  • Food and water


When it comes to providing places that wildlife species can exploit as sources of shelter, there are countless options throughout urban settings. Most wildlife species seek cover for rearing young, feeding and nesting, which is why you might be surprised by the sheer amount of shelter sources they can find in urban environments. Holes in buildings, eaves and other similar nooks and crannies offer plenty of opportunities for critters to make there way inside of the structure.


Space is one of the most important requirements for the survival of wildlife species –overcrowding can often lead to competition for available resources. As a result, only a specific number of animals can live within an area productively. As previously mentioned, urban areas and cities provide plenty of space and shelter for numerous wildlife species – often at the expense of home and property owners, which creates clashes with wildlife.

Weasels also sometimes may be found on your property looking for food.

Food and Water

Cities, and the habits of humans who live in them, create countless opportunities for wildlife species to find free sources of food. One man’s trash is another man’s (or in this case, animals) treasure, the old saying goes. That is exactly true for most animal species that have adapted to urban life remarkably well. Examples include skunks, raccoons, squirrels, mice, and bats. Each of these species has learned how to benefit from the human presence and have even become less afraid of them. The result is all too well known – home invasions and infestations are on the rise, causing the need for professional wildlife control services. Making one’s home uninviting to such species is the best cure for unwanted visitors.

When it comes to what you can do to prevent wildlife from seeking shelter in your home, it is necessary to manipulate one or more of the previously mentioned habitat factors. Wildlife cannot survive unless their habitat needs are met; the lack of one or more such habitat requirements will likely cause them to either die or migrate to another area capable of providing their needs. If they should persist, professional Bowmanville wildlife control services are the best way to go and Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control is the premier option.
