Wildlife move close to homes in attics, crawl space, and under sheds. This space is quiet and dark which makes a perfect home to raise a family. Getting them to move out is quite simple and the supplies needed you most likely have at home. Wildlife do not like lights and noise so introducing this makes the space inhabitable causing the mother or parents to pack up and move to a new location. Wildlife have multiple den sites already if one becomes unsafe.
1. Place spotlights in the space and leave on.
2. Place a portable radio and play talk radio or music with volume up.
Mom or parents will get the hint and pack their kids and leave. Allow them 24-48 hours to safely move their young as they can only move one at a time. Once the family has moved out continue the lights and music for a week or two so the family doesn't move back in.
That's it! You have humanely evicted a family from your property. Why is humane eviction the best approach?
1. It keeps families together.
2. Families are not injured or separated if trapped by a removal service.
3. Trapping and relocation is NOT humane. The family suffers and likely dies from the elements at the release site. There is no such thing as humane trapping.
4. Wildlife are not euthanized. Contacting animal control or wildlife removal sets the animal up for being killed.
5. Decrease in disease spread. Relocating wildlife increases disease spread among other species in new location.
6. Conserves our wildlife species. With loss of habitat it is vital that we protect our native wildlife. Humane eviction is the only approach that protects that species.
We can live together safely with our wildlife. Choose humane eviction. Keep families together.
