With Cooler Months Ahead, Critters Will Seek Warm Buildings

Share Article

Opossums and raccoons will still be around during the winter. Critter Evictor can humanely remove these animals.

Critter Evictor of San Antonio recommends that homeowners seal up any openings that may have appeared throughout the spring and summer to prevent critter infestation as the weather turns cooler.

Although many people believe that nocturnal animals, such as opossums and raccoons hibernate in the winter months, this is simply not the case. These creatures slow their activity down, and some do in fact sleep for longer periods, but they still roam the landscape. Opossums and raccoons share similar habit requirements. They will hole up in a hollow tree or other closed, warm infrastructure to make a den.

Critter Evictor advises homeowners to check and secure any potential access point for these animals such as crawl spaces below the porch, sheds, attics, chimney’s and decks. Sturdy materials like plywood and aluminum flashing make great temporary fixes to these potential infiltration points.

If the home has a garden, consider winter fencing to keep critters away in the colder months. Remember, they are active and looking for food. If there are strange noises coming from distinct areas in the home, a raccoon or opossum may have already set up a den. Critter Evictor highly recommends not removing the animals; this is a health and safety concern.
