Orchards wildlife control tip of the month: How to keep wild animals out of my garden
If you live in the country and you have a Orchards animal control garden, then you have likely had a run-in with mother nature's little bandits. Rabbits, squirrels, raccoons, skunks, armadillos, and opossums are just a few of the wild animals that enjoy pillaging through a garden in search of yummy treats.
It is hard to keep an animal away from a viable food source because they will continue to come back unless you put a stop to it immediately.There are a few ways to prevent animals from getting your prized tomatoes. However, keep in mind that while these are preventative measures, there are some animals that can get by just about any kind of safeguarding you can think of.
One of the first methods to keep some of your plants safe is by wrapping Orchards pest control chicken wire around them. You can surround the plants with chicken wire and secure them to the dirt with stakes. You are essentially putting your plants in a cage and keeping the animals out.
Another more obvious way is to block your garden completely. There are many different types of fences you can surround your garden with, but remember when you do this that there are some animals that are excellent climbers as well as incredible diggers. For the most part, this is likely to deter the animals for a good long while.
Another great Orchards wildlife removal option is to build raised beds. By making foundations that are elevated off the ground on platforms or enclosed planters, you are discouraging any wild animals from digging and rooting through your turnips.
An excellent method of keeping wild animals away from your garden is to spray repellants. Some good repellents are those that smell like predators. For Raccoons, skunks, opossums, and most other small mammals, the urine of a larger animal such as a fox, coyote, or even a dog will discourage them from getting to close. The downside to these methods is that they must frequently be applied, especially if you live in a climate that is wet.
If you don't want to use any of these methods you can go to the right old standby, the Orchards animal trapping scarecrow. However, you can add a bit of a modern-day twist to it. Eventually, wild animals will become accustomed to a scarecrow. If this happens, then it really isn't doing any good. You can take it a step further and add motion sensor lights to the scarecrow. When the lights are triggered by the movement of the animal, they will become startled.
A cheap method you can use is reflectors as well as Orchards exterminator pinwheels or balloons. These will help aid in keeping the animals away. They will move or reflect light, startling the animals.
