Wild Animal Problems
Wild animals pose a variety of problems for homeowners. The biggest concern is for the family’s safety because they carry an assortment of diseases, including rabies, leprosy, and leptospirosis. Additionally, wild animals cause a lot of damage, looking for food, shelter, and water. They dig up yards, tear apart trash, destroy property, all in an attempt to find food and shelter.
Other problems include the possibility animals might attack. If threatened, many wildlife animals will attack to defend themselves. Some may run away, but it depends on the situation. Additionally, larger wild animals prey on smaller ones. A yard infested with smaller animals could attract larger animals in search of food.
Wild Animal Prevention
Wild animals enter residential yards in search of food, water, and shelter. The most effective way to prevent animals from entering a property is to make them less attractive. Eliminate food sources and access to shelter. To start, secure trash with heavy lids, bring in pet food, clean up fallen fruit, and make bird feeders only accessible to birds. Next, search for entry points into a home and secure those. Entry points include small cracks in siding, access to crawl spaces, and holes in the roofing.
Keep yards clean by clearing out brush piles, trimming back trees and bushes, and picking up any potential food sources in the yard. Secure the yard or garden area with a fence or other barrier preventing access to the yard. Do what is necessary to make the yard less attractive and secure from wildlife.
