During the winter months, there’s nothing like bundling up on the couch and relaxing with your family. But if you start hearing scratching sounds coming from your attic, it can be nerve-wracking, to say the least. If you have a large rodent or bird in attic spaces or under your home, they can quickly do a lot of damage to your insulation, wiring, and duct work. Not to mention the possibility of them eventually finding their way inside your home.

One of the best defenses against unwanted wildlife is a good offense, and you should periodically walk around your home, and try to think like an animal. Specifically, you should look for the following:
Food Sources-Most homes now have large, heavy trash cans provided by the local waste collection services with lids that are too heavy for small creatures to lift. But they shouldn’t be stored directly by your home, and shouldn’t be overfilled. If you store store bird seed or pet food in your garage, be sure to use airtight containers.
Shelter-Bushes and shrubbery near your home provide immediate shelter for wildlife, and once they get comfortable there, their next move will be to look for ways inside. That’s why it’s important to keep yard vegetation trimmed year round.
Access Points-Make sure that your crawlspace door and vents are secured, and inspect your roofline for wood rot. You would be amazed at how tight of an opening that small animals can squeeze through. Make sure to also trim any tree branches that are in direct contact with your roof.
