But the truth is, we'd rather teach homeowners how to avoid pest and rodent infestations. If you can keep the wildlife in the wild instead of invading your home, it's safer for you, your family, and the wildlife.
It's only natural that animals seek warm and dry shelter, especially as temperatures start to drop. And if that shelter is also an even better food source - for the wildlife, not you! If you want to keep nature outside, we have some pointers that should help.
Don't Let The Great Outdoors Infest Your Cozy Indoors
Some vital steps to take to prevent wildlife from making your home their home:
The biggest attraction for pests is a food source, and animals can smell trash for miles around. Keep your trash covered. If possible, keep cans waiting for pickup inside your home or at least a garage or shed. If not, at least make sure the cans are securely covered.
Keep vents covered and make sure any openings, like your chimney, have screens in place. Make it difficult for animals to find a way into your home.
Seasonal and ongoing cleanup is vital for your yard, especially if you live in a more remote area. Piles of leaves are the perfect hiding spot for rodents, and once they're used to being close to your home, inside your house is the next spot they'll migrate to.
Keep trees and shrubs trimmed back to avoid creating easy access to your home. You may love the way that giant red cedar tree in your yard looks, but if the branches are an easy path for pests to get to your roof and into your attic, you need to make sure it's trimmed and pruned.
