How to keep wild animals away from your property

Sometimes wild animals can make you feel like your property has become their own. Animals can visit many properties at different times of the year. There are those that seek refuge while they are about to have babies since they need a warm place to protect their young and they can nest somewhere within your property. There are some things that can be done so as to make sure that the animals don’t come anywhere near your property. Even though not all method works as well as others, they are worth a try. The success of one method greatly depends on the animal in question.



Water: you can propel water from a toy gun, hose, pitcher or even a cup as it can actually dissuade some animals from coming into your property. The water may not get into contact with the animal but motions that are involved and the landing of water near the animal can let it know that it isn’t welcome at all. This is a method that can be time consuming and you will require staying alert at all times so as to monitor the yard.

Fence: fencing your property is another method that can actually work. Before fencing, you have to consider the kind of animal that you want excluded so as to choose the correct materials to use. If there is a fence in place and you have to deter cats, you may place strips of plastic put double faced tape at the top. Cats don’t like how the materials feel on paws.

Garbage: proper disposal of garbage can go a long way in discouraging wild animals. When you can, leave garbage cans inside the garage well covered or make sure they are covered in a way that the animals can’t be able to get to it especially at night.

Pet food: you need to ensure that pet food remains indoors at all times and most especially during the night. Wild animals love to feed on these and leaving it outside can actually encourage them to come into your property.

There are a number of things that could be prepared so as to make it sure that the animals don’t come anywhere near your four walls of the house or office area. Even though not all method works as well as others, they are worth a try. The success of one method greatly depends on the animal in question. Go back to the How to get rid of wildlife home page.
