What To Do When a Wild Animal Visits Your Home



When we come into contact with wild animals on our property, our first inclination is that the animal has invaded our space. However, animals made their homes in Pennsylvania long before people settled there. Every year, animals get pushed out of their habitats even more. If you come into contact with a wild animal on your property who is a nuisance or poses a threat to your family and property, here are some precautions you should take.

1. Contact Animal Control
For animal control removal Delaware County PA, there are professionals who care about your well-being as well as the safety of the animals who are native to your surroundings. They can san safely remove the animals and return them to their habitat or re-home them if they have become a nuisance to human habitat.
2. Keep Your Distance
Don't try to remove any wild animals yourself. You could become hurt and rabies remains a problem for animals that live in the wild. Leave the work of removal for the professionals.
3. Secure Your Trash
Many animals visit human homes in search of food, which becomes more scarce as their habitats dwindle. Make sure you don't leave food out that is accessible to them, as this creates habits and they come to rely on humans as a food source. Ensure proper management of your trash. Trash can lids should fit tightly, and if you have a garage, it's best to keep them in the garage where animals won't become tempted.
4. Protect Your Pets
Your pets are at risk of exposure to disease carried by wild animals, including rabies. Get your pet vaccinated every year, even if your pet spends the majority of its time indoors. Situations can happen where pets escape, and their natural curiosity will lead them to other animals.
