How to keep animals out of your yard Repellos. Repellents are one of the easiest ways to keep animals away. Your first line of defense against marauding animals is to eliminate their hiding places, such as piles of wood, weeds and overgrown bushes. Repellents provide a temporary solution at best.
To permanently prevent animals from using those same locations in the future, you'll need to close all barn areas. Make sure all animals are outside before closing any space. Remember, during the spring and summer months, the animal under your steps or anywhere else in your home is likely to be a female with dependent offspring. Make sure that the mother and child can stay together to prevent one of them from suffering cruel deaths.
Once you catch the animal, you can choose to destroy it or relocate it. If you relocate a captured wild animal, make sure to take it 10 to 15 miles away from where it was caught. This helps to ensure that you don't return. You must obtain permission from the government agency or property owner before releasing the animal.
Also, be sure to check your local laws. Although many people like to see birds in feeders or deer in their yard, some wild animals can cause problems. Wildlife can annoy homeowners if they enter gardens or garden areas and cause damage. Wild animals can dig in gardens or under structures, damaging plants and property.
Some animals may only cause problems during the breeding season or when raising offspring. Animals are attracted to gardens and patios because they provide them with food, water or shelter. Wildlife can be very persistent, even if harassed. Changes to your patio or garden may need to be made to make your property less attractive to them.
