ANIMAL FUN FACTS
Critter Control of Central Mississippi
In Central Mississippi, the biggest problem with wildlife is when animals like squirrels, raccoons, and opossums enter homes and businesses. These animals often find and use weak spots in buildings to get inside.
While wildlife can be a problem throughout the year, certain seasons are particularly challenging. In cold weather, animals look for warm places, often inside homes, to take shelter. During spring, female animals seek safe spots, like a cozy attic, to give birth and raise their young.
Homeowners should stay alert to protect their well-being from wildlife intrusions. Listen for unusual sounds coming from the attic, walls, or beneath the floors. Regularly check your home for any signs of entry, such as gaps or holes near the roof or under-hangs. Also, pay attention to any odd smells or marks that could indicate animal presence.
There are several measures homeowners can take to protect their properties from unwanted wildlife. Ensuring trash bins are securely closed and keeping the area around the home free of debris can help. Trimming or removing large trees and shrubs close to your house can also deter animals from using them to get onto your roof. It's best to feed pets indoors; if you must feed them outside, remove any leftover food promptly to avoid attracting animals. Finally, make sure to seal any potential entry points into your home or building.
Damage from wildlife can pose significant risks to property owners. Chewed wires may lead to fires, while bats and birds can spread dangerous viruses. Larger animals, like raccoons, can cause severe damage to roofs and overhangs. It's important for property owners to reach out to a trusted wildlife removal service, such as Critter Control, at the first indication of animal presence.
