WILD THINGS
Spring is finally here and love is in the air for lots of natures creatures. Here are a few things to be aware of when it comes to dealing with wild things in the urban environment. They all want to nest or make a home somewhere and as much as we love to see them around we don’t want to share our home with them.

So watch out, there are a few things you can do to discourage them from moving into or onto your home.

 

• Make sure your chimney has a cap on it as it makes a great home for birds, raccoons and squirrels,  ask            Stephanie as she came face to face with a squirrel in her kitchen one morning.       

 

• Check your soffit, fascia and eaves every year for winter damage or openings into your attic. Remember they get  into very small holes and are very hard to get rid of once they have settled in.

 

• Seal up spaces under sheds, decks, and porches, skunks like these areas but you won’t like them living there.

 

• Foundation gaps in old homes or around windows, mice like these and will move in for the winter. Caution. Don’t  seal up your weeper spaces in your brickwork they need to be free to allow any moisture build up from behind  the bricks escape.


•Birds are wonderful, bright and colourful and they sing, however if they nest under your porch or eaves it becomes a battle zone with feathered fighter jets as they are very protective of their young. They also make a  real mess and wake up squawking very early in the morning.

 

We all try to get along but watch out for some of these as they are like tenants who don’t pay rent, they generally move out when they are good and ready to go.
