Keeping animals off your roof can be challenging. But, there are a few steps to follow in order to prevent animals from gaining access to your roof such as: o Trimming tree brunches so that they do not overlap onto your roof. o Partially wrapping downspouts with a PVC pipe or sheet metal, and/or covering a small section with grease. o Dismantle any old antennas attached to your house.
No. Many companies may claim to have sprays, which will keep animals away from your home. But, there is no such spray. There is a solution used with a fogger to deodorize enclosed areas, which animals don’t like and therefore will leave the area immediately.
According to the Minister of Natural Resources’ Fish and Wildlife Conservation Act 1997, if a nuisance animal is trapped, it must be released on site or in a near by location that does not exceed more than one kilometer from where it was caught. Relocation is often seen as a quick, effective, and humane way to deal with the problem. However, it is not. In fact, it is ineffective and inhumane. Top main reasons why relocation doesn’t work and is inhumane: o A new animal will quickly replace the one that was relocated. o Many animals do not survive relocation as they become injured or die as a result of fighting for new territories or finding food. o Relocating animals create orphans. There is always the potential of relocating a mother that has a nest of babies somewhere, which decreases the young survival. o Relocating a nursing mother with her young decreases their chance of survival because the mother not only has to fight for territory and food, but for a safe place to raise her young. o Relocating a sick animal into a new habitat is a quick way to spread disease among wildlife populations. Trapping, relocating, or killing wildlife is never the best solution when dealing with nuisance wildlife. Please call us if you have any wildlife problems.
