Wildlife Control Tips

Experts at Smithereen Pest Management recommend the following tips to keep nuisance wildlife in the wild:

  • Seal any cracks or crevices on the exterior of the home with caulk and steel wool.
  • Pay special attention to holes in the structure that lead to dark secluded areas, like attics and belfries.
  • Replace loose mortar and weather stripping around the basement foundation and windows.
  • Screen vents and openings to chimneys.
  • Store food in airtight containers and dispose of garbage regularly.
  • Keep tree limbs cut back 6 to 8 feet from the roofline and store firewood at least 20 feet away from the house.
