ATLANTA, GA, January 09, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Atlanta pest control professionals, Team Pest USA, offer helpful advice for making sure your house does not become a home to wildlife. These kinds of encounters are more frequent during this time of year. The weather is cold and tends to drive animals like mice, squirrels and other rodents indoors. Many species are incredibly adept at getting in too, which is why knowing what preventative measures to take is essential.
Make Your Home Critter-proof
When it comes to deterring wild animals, the best offense is an excellent defense. A critter couldn't care less about your presence; more than likely, they have picked up the scent of food or are trying to seek warm shelter from the elements. Another reason, one that makes wildlife prevention highly important, is that these creatures are oftentimes ill.
Not only are rabid animals an immediate threat for the disease they carry, they are also more prone to straying from their natural habitat. If you notice a wild animal on your property or in your home, contact an Atlanta wildlife removal contractor as soon as possible. It is not worth the risk of potentially getting attacked.
Always remember to keep food in sealed containers. Make sure garbage can lids are shut and consider investing in a locking device to deter unruly raccoons.
According to Brandon Pelfrey, Owner of Team Pest USA, "Nine times out of 10, food is the reason behind the encounter. Animals have a keen sense of smell and can pick up a scent trail from far away. Seal up every crack and crevice in your house, especially those in the attic."
