How To Prevent Wildlife From Coming Onto Your Property:

Most wildlife pests are simply on the hunt for food and water, and occasionally a safe place to live. By understanding this and looking at ways to make your property seen less as a suitable home or food source, you’ll greatly reduce the number of wildlife pests. This can include the following:
  • Reduce their access to food and garbage. These pests are looking for food sources, so if you have your garbage cans filled with food scraps near your home, that will attract more pests to your property.
  • Keep your yard and property as neat and tidy as possible. Animals might be looking for homes, so if you have piles of debris or yard waste on your property, that can be seen as the perfect new home for a variety of wildlife pests.
  • Keep your trees and bushes protected and trimmed and away from your home if possible. WIldlife pests such as deer are often looking for fruit trees and vegetable plants to snack on, so if they aren’t protected, it makes it an easy food source for the deer.
