In Portland, Sandy, Vancouver, Gresham, and Clackamas there is no shortage of nuisance wildlife. Skunks, raccoons, and opossums roam the urban, suburban and rural areas, looking for food and a nice warm place to hunker down. Often, that nice warm place is the crawlspace of your home. When nuisance wildlife infests areas of your home, they create an unsafe environment for you and your family. They can carry dangerous vermin, spread disease and leave your home’s air quality lousy with urine and feces.
There are, however, a few precautions one can take to ensure the risk for a wild animal infestation is minimized. Firstly, regardless of how adorable a raccoon, skunk, or opossum is to you or your family members, do not invite it into your home or offer it food unless you intend to adopt it as a pet, which is also not recommended.
Protect And Secure Points Of Entry
Make sure all screens protecting the entryways to your crawlspace are free from easily exploited damage such as rips or tears. Keeping all your crawlspace entry points firmly in place will dissuade wildlife from breaching your foundation.
Bar Access To Garbage
Secure your garbage areas. Make sure your garbage can or trash bin have lids that cannot be easily overturned and that your garbage is not stored nearby any crawlspace openings.
