3 Ways to Keep Wildlife Out of Your Home During the Winter, Miami, Ohio

You love the majesty of nature, but when things move indoors, problems can abound. Critters who make their way inside your home leave damages behind that can attract additional animal problems in the future.  Here are a few simple ways to keep animals out of your home, and when to call in professional wildlife removal services of ASAP Critter People.   

As the winter month approach, critters will continue searching for food sources.  Some of their normal sources such as plants and berries decrease during these months, so other sources become more necessary.  You may find evidence of raccoons, opossums or skunks grubbing in your lawn as they teach their young to find this tasty treat.   

Do what you can to keep your trash covered, contained, and protected. Raccoons are masters at getting the lids off.  Consider storing closed garbage cans inside your garage or shed until garbage night.  As long as a food source is available, they will keep coming.  Seeing wildlife activity at your garbage cans is sometimes the first sign of a wildlife problem.   


To keep animals outside where they belong, focus on prevention.  Before repairing any holes or damages found on your home, you should call the ASAP Critter People.  Our trained wildlife professionals will provide a complete wildlife inspection to determine if your home has any active wildlife issues that need resolved and/or what type of prevention will keep you wildlife free in the future.  We provide damage repairs, installation of custom made gable vent guards, soffit guards, chimney guards and caps to keep critters from getting in from these common entry points, all backed by a warranty.  

As fall and winter approach, critters will be looking for a dry and warm place to mate and nest.  Attics, chimneys, soffits, and roof-lines are common nesting areas for birds, squirrels and raccoons.  If you are hearing noises in your attic or regularly seeing unwanted wildlife on your property, call the locally owned and operated ASAP Critter People for free advice.  

It only takes one small weak area on your home for a creature to make a entry point to your attic.  Give A.S.A.P. Critter People a call this fall to help you protect your home and lawns.
