Q&A with Local Franchisee Jeremy Chester
What are some of the most common wildlife issues that homeowners face in your area?
Mice, raccoons, squirrels, birds and bats in attics, moles in the lawn, and animals under decks or in crawl spaces.
How do the seasons affect wildlife activity in your area?
Cold weather makes animals enter homes, and warm weather entices animals to go under decks and sheds.
What are some common signs of nuisance wildlife activity?
Noise in the attic, insulation in the lawn, and visible damage to the home or yard.
Any prevention tips for residents in your area?
Make sure all vents and openings are screened, covered, capped, and sealed.
When should homeowners call Critter Control?
Call if there's any idea that something is causing damage. It's much easier and cost-effective to prevent rather than repair damage.
Wildlife Problems in Dayton, OH
Coyotes in Dayton
Although coyotes are common in Dayton, they aren't native to the Southwest Ohio area. The animals are able to survive and even thrive in most habitats. These hunters will exploit yards for small prey such as voles, shrews, or mice. While they are curious, coyotes generally avoid people.
Pet owners with large-breed dogs often have trouble with coyote packs out on the hunt. The wildlife pests may view other canines as a threat to their territory or their pups during breeding season. Dayton homeowners with rabbit hutches or chicken coops also have conflicts with these predators.
White-tailed deer are plentiful in Dayton and other Ohio cities. These animals cause problems when they destroy gardens or landscaping. In addition, white-tailed deer move to new areas at dusk and dawn, often crossing roadways and causing vehicle collisions.
While some Ohio homeowners use frightening devices or repellents to deter white-tailed deer from their lawns, these methods become less effective over time. Large herds can quickly overrun a neighborhood.
