In the case of the deer eating the wild flowers, it will not be captured and removed. A problem like this could involve fencing the area to prevent browsing.To stop animal damage you have to be proactive. Inspect your property frequently and look for signs of damage. Determine what animal is doing the damage and apply the appropriate control methods to stop this damage in its tracks. No pun intended!By being aware of this damage before it gets out of hand, you can save money; perhaps a lot of money by removing the source and preventing another occurrence. Once you have an animal infestation, you are very likely to have another if the holes are not repaired or the entry points covered or sealed.Not only is the physical damage an issue, but the possible diseases wildlife can carry is another reason to keep your property safe from all wildlife.Another thing that is often overlooked is wildlife feeding.
