Pest Control - Wildlife

Wildlife can pose major problems when they decide to take up residence on our Maryland properties. Wildlife has adapted to living with people, whether in urban or suburban, or rural areas; however, it is no secret that the closer you live to wooded areas or open spaces like fields, the more problems with wildlife you will experience.

Some of the most regular visitors to our properties and therefore the biggest wildlife threats include:

  • Birds

  • Groundhogs

  • Moles

  • Opossums

  • Raccoons

  • Squirrels

Things that are most likely to attract wildlife to any property include tall grass, overgrown vegetation, woodpiles, and food and water sources. Living or foraging for food regularly in your yard puts them in close contact with your home. Then when food becomes scarce or there is a need for warm, safe shelter, these animals won't hesitate to move indoors. Common entry points include vents, chimneys, holes in the roofline, and gaps around cellar doors and your foundation. Having wildlife living with you and your family is problematic for many reasons, including the damage they cause, the diseases they spread, and their unpredictability.

Use the following prevention tips to help keep wildlife out of your home and stop them from taking over your yard.

  • Place all outdoor trash in containers with tight-fitting lids.

  • After feeding your pets pick up uneaten food.

  • Move bird feeders away from your home.

  • Clean up food from outdoor eating areas after barbecues or picnics.

  • Regularly harvest fruit trees and garden areas.

  • Put wire mesh at the end of downspouts and over vents leading into your house.

  • Place caps on chimneys.

  • Inspect the outside of your home, from the roof to the foundation, for openings that you need to seal.

  • Remove woodpiles and other debris from your yard, keep the grass cut short, and cut back overgrown landscaping.

  • Consider professional rodent and wildlife control for your Elkton home or business
