Beverly Hills and environs are home to a myriad of critters, large and small: coyotes, mountain lions, opossums, raccoons, squirrels, skunks, migrating fowl…the list goes on and on.
The first line of defense is property maintenance: well maintained fences and perimeter walls, as well as intact screens on sub-floor and roof vents, go a long way to keeping animals out of your building. To deter them from the property ensure that the trash bin area is maintained clean, that there is no trash left or put outside the bins, and that the bins are kept tightly closed at all times.
The second line of defense is to not feed pets outside or feed wildlife at any time; this includes birds, squirrels, etc. Feeding pets outside attracts wildlife..to your pet, not to their food...so pets should be fed indoors and no pet food should be left outside. The feeding of urban wildlife is prohibited for this very reason; the feeding attracts the wildlife that preys on the animal you feed. So your urban wildlife friend, as well as your pet, quickly become “sitting ducks."
