Washington DC wildlife control Tip of the Month:

Where should I relocate a trapped wild animal?
Noticing an animal sneak their way around your house cannot be a pretty sight for anyone. As a homeowner, it calls for concern and stress. This situation might lead you to trap an animal and think of relocating them to make your house free of those little critters. Now, once you have trapped an animal, your next reasonable question would be where you should relocate them. Even though your intentions are pure and you only wish to see them prosper in a friendlier environment than your attic or backyard, you might be doing more harm than good. Trapping and relocating animals may seem like a humane approach at first but once you take a closer look, you will come to realize that in actuality it threatens their existence. There are many reasons which justify this statement and are mentioned below for your better understanding.

Home sweet home
An animal that is used to the urban environment may find it challenging to survive anywhere else. Even though animals thrive in their natural habitat surrounded by trees and vegetation, in reality, it is only true for animals that have been residing there since the beginning. Any animal that has spent a huge chunk of its life burrowing through multiple lawns and gardens will perish if relocated. The reason for this is the specific range that each animal is designed to function in gets disrupted when moved away. A conversion area is a new and unknown place to any animal and ends up threatening its existence. Survival becomes very difficult when they are not aware of how to protect themselves from the new dangers that the territory brings along with the existing wildlife that cannot wait to gulp down the new entrant.

Abandonment of the infants
The trapping of animals usually occurs when they leave their hiding place in search of food and water. During this process, they leave their young ones behind. When the adults are trapped and relocated, the infants find themselves abandoned with no one to provide them with the necessities. This results in infants dying because of hunger and thirst. You can then detect this through the smell of the carcass. It calls for further cleaning and sanitizing up the place. If you decide to find and relocate the infants too, it will not help with their slim chances of survival because the new and stressful environment often leads the animal to leave its babies. Either way, it leads to a bitter end.

Short-term solution
Trapping and relocating is rather a shortsighted solution that will release you of your worries temporarily. Nature has a way of filling all and any gaps that may have been left behind which is why even though you may have removed and transferred the animals, there is a chance that other animals might find their way back in due time. The food and the hospitable conditions left behind by the previous animals are enough to attract newbies. Hence, trapping and relocating animals is only a short-term solution that backfires and requires more hard work and money later on.

Other miscellaneous reasons
There are other things you might also want to take note of when trapping and relocating wildlife.
1. Some states have strict laws regarding trapping and relocating, and violating those can invite trouble.
2. It may seem humane but only shortens their longevity.
3. It is ineffective and results in disorientation and stress to the animals.

Sensible approach
In light of such a situation, you should get in touch with a professional wildlife removal company that will handle the problem for you ethically and legally. They will also inspect the place for you, making sure it is completely free of all animals. Also, consult them regarding making changes in or around your house to make it less inviting and hospitable.
