Barbeque Season and Pests

Summer time is in full swing now, and with the 4th of July only a day away, the barbeques are firing up and everyone is going to be enjoying the holiday outside. But one thing to consider are the wild animals that may be attracted by all the food. You don’t want any uninvited pests to show up after the party is over. Once an animal finds food in a certain place, they will usually come back again for more later.

But one thing to consider are the wild animals that may be attracted by all the food. You don’t want any uninvited pests to show up after the party is over. Once an animal finds food in a certain place, they will usually come back again for more later. Many people do not clean up properly after a long night of partying on the Fourth of July. Food spills, messy garbage, and even food scraps can attract wild animals looking for a meal. When the sun goes down, animals will be more inclined to check out your backyard if it was or is still full of food. The biggest culprits on BBQ nights are raccoons and opossums. These critters love scavenging for a meal, and are not picky either.Cleaning up is very important in the prevention of unwanted animals in your backyard. If drinks are spilled, be sure to hose down your patio space after the party. Alcohol and sugary sodas alike can attract uninvited guests. Food scraps and should be swept away and thrown out. Garbage bags should be placed in lockable garbage cans. Dumpster diving animals like raccoons can usually find a feast in the garbage of a barbeque night. Be sure to clean off the grill and take any leftover food and drinks inside the house.We specialize in the humane removal of squirrels, raccoons, opossums, and other pests in the New York New Jersey area.
