Avoid Winter Wildlife In New York


Wildlife can cause a lot of damage and stress in the winter months when they are looking for food, water, and shelter. The most common wildlife creatures to invade homes are woodchucks, bats, opossums, birds, skunks, raccoons, squirrels, and chipmunks.

For the most part, these pests can be found causing various levels of property damage such as raiding trash cans and dumpsters, ruining and contaminating insulation, leaving piles of droppings throughout, nesting in your home, and creating odors and noises that leave you sleepless and stressed out. You don’t want to eliminate them yourself because many of these woodland pests can be very dangerous to trap. They will scratch, claw, and bite their way free leaving you with the potential of contracting some serious diseases or infections if your skin is broken in the process. This doesn’t include the cost of all the repairs that you will incur from the damage that they have created in their search for food and warmth for survival.

You can try some DIY tips. Try to keep trash stored in tight containers away from your house or securely in a shed or garage. Place bird feeders at a distance from your house where you can still enjoy watching the birds, but not attract wildlife to your door. Animal proof your composts and garden areas with containment or fences. Remove junk, brush, and woodpiles from your property. Lastly, contact an experienced wildlife pest control service to completely eradicate these pests and keep them away.

Most importantly, never try to remove wildlife from your home and property yourself and never use toxic repellents that can make you, your family, and your pets sick if not properly mixed or properly used, especially around food sources.
