Friday, April 9th 2021, 11:25 am - Springtime is baby time, and that means urban wildlife like squirrels are trying to find safe places to take care of their families.
Bill Dowd, President and CEO of Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control says it's "virtually impossible" to keep animals out of your backyard, but it is possible to keep them from overstaying their welcome.
Eliminating food sources like bird feeders and cleaning up leftover crumbs around your barbecue is a good start.
According to Skedaddle Humane Wildlife Control:
> Urban wildlife have adapted extremely well to our modern day habits, and even with the best attempt to direct them elsewhere, they may still manage to infiltrate your home. In this event, trust the experts at Skedaddle to protect the biggest investment of your life, and the wellbeing of your family. It’s best to act quickly at the first signs of wildlife entry, to avoid as much damage as possible.
