Ways to Prevent Wild Animals from Being Attracted to Your Home | Critter Control Tampa

Get a Quick Quote

As Florida’s population grows, rural and natural areas are converting to urban use, forcing wildlife to wander in search of food, water, and shelter. In residential neighborhoods, animals find things to eat such as pet food, fallen fruit, bird seed, compost, and trash. Once the animals realize they can get an easy meal on your property, they will look for a safe place to nest, birth, and raise their young.

If your home’s structure has weak points, the animals that make their way inside will quickly realize they have everything they need and rarely leave on their own. To decrease health risks and lessen the amount of damage caused by a squirrel, mice, rat, bat, or raccoon infestation, it is vital you contact Critter Control© of Tampa as soon as possible.

Prevent Animal Invasions

Homeowners who have faced animal infestations know first hand how difficult and costly they can be to get rid of, which is why it is important to prevent animals from entering your home in the first place.

Make your home and property less attractive to animals by:

  • Cleaning up any accumulated seed around bird feeders or removing the bird feeders
  • Bringing pet dishes inside at night
  • Storing outside garbage in secure containers
  • Cleaning grills and outdoor kitchen regularly
  • Covering and securing compost piles
  • Placing wire around gardens
  • Picking up fallen fruit from the ground
  • Stacking firewood two feet off the ground and away from your home and fence
