All The Reasons You Don't Want Wildlife Hanging Around Your Rochester Property

Sharing our living spaces with various forms of wildlife is just part and parcel of being a homeowner in New York. It's a big part of why we purchase our homes and invest the time and effort needed to take care of them.

Waking up to the gentle chirping of a songbird in the tree outside your window or watching squirrels chase each other on a lazy Sunday afternoon are just some of the joys of being a homeowner in our great state.

Wildlife living around our homes also help keep the number of dangerous and annoying insects under control.

As with most other things in life, the key to having wildlife on your property is moderation. 

An adorable family of squirrels nesting in the tree outside is a joy. A pack of raccoons going through your trash and making your front yard resemble a city dump or groundhogs tunneling through your property and making it look like a WW1 war zone is a problem.

Let's take a look at the types of wildlife you can expect to run into around your Rochester home, what you can do to prevent wildlife control problems from rearing their ugly head, and what to do if prevention fails and you need to find reliable wildlife control in Rochester.

Common Types Of Wildlife That Invade Rochester Properties

Living in the great state of NY, we live with one of the most diverse ecosystems in the United States, with thousands of species of wildlife calling it home. Thankfully most of them spend their lives out of sight of humans.

In the Rochester area, you're likely to encounter the following species trying to become your housemates:

  • Woodchucks
  • Raccoons
  • Opossums
  • Skunks 
  • Groundhogs

Most of the time, homeowners do not realize there is a problem until the number of unwelcome guests on their property grows out of control and the furry invaders start heading out further from their nests and taking bigger risks in pursuit of food.

All The Problems Wildlife Can Create Around Your Property

As adorable as wildlife creatures are in the cartoons we grew up watching, a bunch of them infesting your home or property is a recipe for disaster.

Groundhogs and woodchucks will tunnel through your yard, making it dangerous to walk on and unsightly to see; raccoons and opossums will go through your trash, and your garden like a whirlwind, and a startling skunk will demonstrate the "offensive" in "offensive smells." All wildlife pests will bite if cornered or threatened and expose you to a number of dangerous diseases and bacteria such as rabies, leptospirosis, salmonella, etc.

Natural Ways To Make Your Property Less Inviting To Wildlife

Evicting these unwelcome guests from your property is not easy and is best left to wildlife experts, so let's look at what you can do to make your home less attractive to them.

  • Keep your trash in securely sealed containers and dispose of it regularly.
  • Keep entrances to your home securely sealed.
  • Don't leave around easily accessible, for that can attract wildlife critters.
  • Clear out debris around your home and cut down grass to remove hiding places.

If you're starting to see signs of a wildlife infestation regardless of your best wildlife prevention efforts, it's time to involve Rochester wildlife removal professionals.
