Animal Care and Control is reminding us that raccoons, skunks, bats and other critters can make their way into your home through windows that are left open. Even chimneys and attics are gateways for critters with cooties to make their way in the house, but many times critters and cooties make their way via our cute furry friends. Here are some tips from Animal Care & Control. Tips to consider:
Feed your pets indoors and don’t toss table scraps into the backyard. Do not leave pet food outside for any length of time.
Hide any exposed garbage, pet food, and bird feed from critters. If trash must be stored outside at night, put it in sturdy, tightly closed containers. Keep your home in good repair to prevent animals from entering through cracks and crevices. Do you think you’re ready for a new pet? Here are some things to consider.
