Suburbia Gone Wild: Dealing With Construction displaced animals


These animals are looking for what they have always looked for, but since that environment has been disturbed, they are searching elsewhere. Unfortunately, elsewhere may be be your neighborhood!

Construction displaced inhabitants 

While most of the rest of the country is experiencing a downturn in real estate market, and a downturn in new housing starts, the Tyler, East Texas area seems to be in a building boom! There is construction going on in almost every quadrant of the area. This is great for our local economy, but the former inhabitants don't always want to leave!

While working in some of these areas, many of which had been wooded areas, and pastures a short time ago, I noticed a few usually unsocial animals popping up in unusual places. This is pretty normal for construction on this scale. The coyotes are not the only things being displaced. There are also a lot of rodents, insects, and even snakes that have lost their place as well. It is only natural, that they begin to seek new places to live and forage for food. I wanted to provide a few hints and tips for keeping them away from your home.

First of all, they are looking for what they have always looked for, but since that environment has been disturbed, they are searching elsewhere. Unfortunately, elsewhere may be be your neighborhood! What are they looking for? Food, water, and shelter. The same things that any animal seeks.

If you have a koi pond with a sheltering shade, they have, what looks to them, like paradise! If you feed your pets outdoors, and leave excess food around, that looks like Mcdonald's to them. If you have a pile of brush and debris, that is the Hilton. If all of this is cloaked by heavy vegetation, or brush, that makes good cover, and looks like nirvana.

Like keeping human predators at bay, making your property a hard target is the best way to keep animal predators and scavengers away.
