Whether you live in a large city or in a rural area, wildlife will always be a factor to consider when it comes to maintaining your home. It might be that it is a different type of wildlife you’re dealing with depending on where you live, but when it comes down to it, there are 3 basic needs that might lead to wildlife finding their way into your yard or home. These are food, water and shelter.
If you want to keep wildlife out, it is vital to identify what it might use as food and shelter and then deny access to sources of this.
Fencing around your home can discourage larger animals from accessing your home, but for smaller ones, you will need to patch up holes and cracks, as well as, put sturdy grates where you have vents.
Keeping food in airtight containers inside your home will make it less likely for rodents to find and access it.
Outdoor gardens are big temptations for herbivores, so putting up sturdy fencing and/or netting will protect these.
