Keep garbage and compost secure, so you don't inadvertently attract wildlife!
Wildlife like a quiet place to sleep. If you play a talk radio 24/7, there's a good chance your furry friends will move elsewhere!
Wildlife also want a dark place to rest. If you put a floodlight in an attic or under a porch, it will encourage your unwanted tenants to move out!
Examples of common household fixes that can be done to prevent future conflicts with wildlife.
Step 1: Check the calendar - for their safety, removing wildlife is only advisable during certain times of the year that are outside of their baby season. If you are unsure when baby season is occurring, contact HEART Wildlife and we can let you know.
Step 2: Install hardwire cloth by attaching it to the bottom of the structure and then down to the ground level, then running the mesh in an “L” shape away from the structure about 8 to 10 inches. The “L” shape wire can be buried 4 to 6 inches below the surface of the ground or placed flush with the ground by using landscaping staples to secure it to the ground (if existing root and rock systems are too difficult to penetrate).
*Note: It is VERY important not to trap animals who are already under the structure! Leave a 12” gap in the mesh and install a one-way door, so animals have a route of escape. After three days, once you are sure everyone is out, close off that last foot of mesh so the structure remains wildlife proofed. We can provide one-way door rentals for local clients that are appropriate for the species you're humanely excluding - just send us a message or give us a call!
Hardwire cloth attached to structure in L-shaped barrier.
Hardwire cloth buried 4-6 inches below ground level and extended outward 10-12 inches
Hardwire cloth is buried under the dug-up soil and held down with landscaping staples.
One-way door is temporarily installed allowing wildlife to exit but will not allow re-entry.
Mice will also take advantage of any openings under the siding of our homes, cracks in the foundation, and they use pipes and wires as highway systems in and out of our homes.

Use the copper wire mesh to fill the entry point. This will prevent rodents from chewing through and re-entry.
