Squirrels, raccoons, opossums, bats.
These and other wild animals can invade your home, cause damage and pose health risks.
Take these steps to help critter-proof your property…
Fully screen vents, chimneys and other potential access points.
Cut back tree branches near the roofline so squirrels and other animals can’t jump from them.
Because trash attracts hungry animals, keep your garbage cans tightly sealed.
Maintain a clean yard, as brush, leaves and other debris buildup make ideal shelter for small animals.
Store firewood at least 20 feet away from your home.
If a critter makes itself at home in your house, contact an animal control specialist immediately.
