Wildlife is all around us. Whether it’s a squirrel that keeps stealing your bird seed or an opossum digging in the trash, these furry friends can cause damage to plants and property while bringing with them diseases such as rabies! The presence of wildlife on our lawns may seem charming at first; however when they start damaging everything we’ve worked hard for-including ourselves by carrying disease along their path through life -then things take another turn altogether…
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that 92% of wild animal rabies cases were attributed to raccoons in 2010. Raccoons continued as the most frequently identified rabid species, accounting 36.5 percent or all reported pest viruses during this time frame followed by skunks at 23%, bats with a 7 percentage point share while foxes contributed 1 8%. Other notable findings include rodents who accounted 3 2%, members from rabbit family making up just under 4%.
As the population of these animals increases, homeowners may find themselves having to deal with them for the first time. They pose both a nuisance and health threat when they come too close or enter your home as often this has been seen in recent years due an increase across various cities worldwide including New York City where there were over 3200 cases reported last year alone! If you live in an area where there are lots of wild animals, your house may become their home. Wild places like forests and parks tend to have more visitors than other areas because they offer food sources such as berries or insects for instance; these types places also give away safety with how thickly wooded it usually is near any streamlines that run through terrain making up part our natural landscape today- which means we shouldn’t be too worried if one day soon their isn’t much left standing after a disaster has struck! homeowners should never try to handle a wild animal on their own because they might get hurt.

Here are some tips to keep wildlife from entering your home:
Make your home safe from the outdoors by installing door sweeps, chimney caps and exhaust fan covers. Make sure you also cover up any window wells with screens or other material to keep animals out! Finally, cut back tree limbs six feet away when storing firewood near homes because they can easily get into houses through their broken windowsills. Cleaning is an essential part in maintaining safety within one’s own abode; so too must this be applied throughout all areas which invite entry – whether these locations prove exterior grants access via penetrations such as doors/openings (eaves establishment). To keep your home safe and free from pests, it is important to maintain the ventilation in attics as well as other areas where moisture can gather. You should remove any excess food items like birdseed that could attract raccoons or bears if left out without protection; you may also need additional security measures such a wire mesh on windowsills because these creatures will find their way into homes no matter how securely locks are set up! To keep your yard and garden free of pesky wildlife, be sure to fence in all accessible areas. Plant choice can also make a difference- don’t choose fruits or flowers if you want animals gone!
