2 Ways You Can Help the Exterminator Eliminate Wildlife in Your House

Living in the country can be great. You have more space to live, you may get to enjoy a great view, and you don't have neighbors right up beside your house. But, there are some problems with living in the country. One of them is that the wildlife is going to be living a lot closer to you in general. Having that wildlife being so close to you can mean that sometimes they end up in your house, and that's a little closer to nature than you really want to be. When you have wildlife sharing your personal space, you need to call an exterminator who can get them out of your house. You can do some things to assist the exterminator and to keep the wildlife from coming back into your house. 

Clear Brush Out

You don't want to give the animals who would like to get into your house any cover so that they get into your house. Brush or plants near and around your foundation or right up against your house will let things like mice, rats, and other small creatures hide and will let them get into your house. Clearing out that brush and moving it further away from your house will help with that problem. If you have to stack the brush up make sure that you put it far away from your house. 

Clear Out Food

Whatever animal is getting into your house needs to be fed. Clearing out food that might attract the animals to your house will cut down the attractiveness of your house. That means clearing out things like berry bushes, bird feeders, and your trash. Animals like raccoons are very clever when it comes to getting into your trash. Making sure that you have a cover on the trash cans can help to thwart raccoons or other animals from getting into your trash. If you can, get a cover that has a latch because the animals can't just push the lid off. You might also want to put something heavy on top of the lid because it will make it harder for the animals to get to whatever food may be in your trash. 

While you are waiting for the exterminator, you can do some things to keep wildlife from invading your house. Doing these things can also help keep the wildlife from getting a foothold in the first place and can help keep them from coming back. Since you have spent the money for the exterminator to get rid of the animals, you want to make sure that you aren't wasting it by giving the animals a way to come back.
