HOW TO DETER WILDLIFE

Discovering wildlife in your home or business can be very distressing due to the potential damage it can cause to your property and well-being. However, there are a few tips you can use to keep these unwelcome visitors away.

  • Ensure rubbish bins have securely fitted lids to stop wildlife from feeding on contents.
  • Keep gardens clear from debris as this may provide bedding for wildlife to nest. If you have a compost heap, don’t include organic food waste, as this will attract them.
  • Ensure drains are kept clean and free of debris to reduce the chances of insects such as mosquitoes laying eggs which will, in turn, attract foraging wildlife.
  • Seal areas such as gaps or cracks around doors and window frames to reduce wildlife access into your property.
