In the charming neighborhoods of Beaverton such as West Slope, families know that wildlife nuisances can be a real burden once the weather warms up. It is not uncommon to see a raccoon, opossum or skunk roaming around the bushy yards of West Slope, and they are only looking for two things, food, and shelter. Unfortunately, many Beaverton homes provide the perfect place for these animals to live and breed. These simple tips can help you keep your home safe from raccoons, opossums, and skunks this spring.
TIPS FOR KEEPING YOUR HOME SAFE FROM WILDLIFE
-Never, never, never feed a wild raccoon, opossum, or skunk. Never ever ever.
-Ensure that all your vent screens are in place. This is a common way to access your crawl space, so it is critical to have them sealed and in place.
-If your garbage is left outside, be sure that it is secured so that you do not have food source available to them. Make sure your waste bins as well as your compost bins have secure lids and are at least 10 feet from your home’s structure
