Unwanted Wildlife

Category: Fall 2019, Wild About Wildlife 84 0

If you have unwanted wildlife in your yard, there are humane ways to encourage them to move on rather than using rodenticides and glue traps. Some examples:

  • Don’t leave pet food outside.
  • Securely cover trash cans.
  • Purchase a plastic hawk or owl to deter squirrels.
  • Sprinkle cayenne pepper around your house or yard.
  • Place soaked rags of ammonia or vinegar or spray it directly onto areas wildlife finds attractive. Reapply daily for best results and use only outdoors.
  • Install floodlights to deter skunks.
