Wildlife can be a nuisance, but the humane removal and relocation of wildlife is important for the environment. Keep wildlife out of your home with these helpful tips.
There are a few things more satisfying than keeping a clean home - one that you could be proud of and you won't be scared to have friends over for dinner parties or drinks. But despite our best efforts in keeping the place immaculate, the most stubborn of critters can still threaten to come in unannounced.
The need for humane wildlife control in Montreal, where urban wildlife such as skunks, raccoons, squirrels, bats and birds can be a problem, is made all the more essential when you factor in that they are an invaluable part of the ecosystem. All wildlife serves a purpose, so the needless killing and injuring of these creatures is unnecessary. Here are a few ways you can wildlife-proof your home, effectively and humanely:
- Make sure there are no animals already inside. If you have a suspected wildlife problem, before sealing any entry points make sure your home is clear of wildlife. Check all the areas where you think animals could've gotten in, like your attic, chimney, basement, the space under the deck, the crawl space under your home, garage, and vents.
- Remove food sources. Keep all food in air-tight containers or inside your fridge. Clean and dry all areas in your home where typically a lot of moisture tends to accumulate. Damp areas are attractive to wildlife.
