How to Keep Wildlife Out of Your Home This Winter

Wildlife control is the hardest during winter in Waldorf, MD. Many animals need a warm place to live during the coldest months of the year. In the frigid winter temperatures, your home looks extremely cozy. But, allowing wildlife to live in your Waldorf home can be very problematic. Wildlife can spread disease, cause damage, and make a mess. 

Now is the time to take steps that will keep wildlife out of your home this winter. In this article, we explain the top things you can do now to ensure your home is wildlife-free during the cold part of the year. 


Steps to keep wildlife out of your home this winter

Wildlife encompasses many animals. Technically any wild animal could be considered wildlife. When we mention wildlife, we are discussing bats, beavers, birds, foxes, gophers, groundhogs, moles, opossums, pigeons, raccoons, snakes, squirrels, and vultures specifically. Some wildlife is more likely to make your home their home in the winter. For example, squirrel invasions are a common occurrence in Waldorf, but vulture intrusions are not. 

No matter what the pest is, the following steps will help you keep wildlife out of your home this winter. 


1) Don’t feed the wildlife.

Feeding birds, and subsequently squirrels, is very common. Some people even enjoy leaving out food for raccoons and deer or other wildlife. The problem with this is that feeding wildlife trains them to view your home and yard as a good place. They are likely to lose their fear of humans and your property. Additionally, they are much more likely to remain in the area and become a nuisance this winter if you feed them. 


2) Seal any potential entrance points.

Holes or gaps in your home’s foundation, crawlspace, and roof are great entry points for wildlife. Many of the smaller animals can fit through spaces under an inch. So, you may want to hire a professional company to ensure all entrance points are sealed properly. 


3) Keep trash cans secured.

While you may not be actively feeding the wildlife, an unsecured trashcan could be luring them to the area. Trash is food for many types of wildlife, who are not picky about their meals. Raccoons, squirrels, foxes, and more all enjoy raiding trashcans, especially during winter when food is scarce. To keep these pests away from your home this winter, make sure you have a trashcan with a lockable lid.
