At Mid-Atlantic Wildlife Control, we are all about humane and the least stressful methods of animal removal. However, live-trapping and relocation doesn’t work for every critter. Some are too large to capture, such as deer. Others, such as geese, will return no matter how far you take them. For these and some other animals repellents may be the best approach. If that’s the case, you can rely on our animal repellent services in Maryland, whether you live in Edgewood, Middle River, Annapolis or any other area of the mid-Atlantic region.
Types of Animal Repellents We Use
There are many ways to discourage a particular animal from nesting or feeding on your property. We only choose repellents that are safe for the animal, the environment, as well as for humans and pets. The two major types of repellents we use are:
- Contact repellents—this means an animal has to make a contact, such as ingesting a plant that was sprayed with the repellent. The main ingredients in such repellents are designed to alter the taste of the plant or cause the animal to have indigestion, which discourages them from feeding on your property again.
- Area repellents—these repellents are applied in the general area you want to protect. They have a specific smell that a particular animal doesn’t like, so they stay away.
After inspecting your property and the problem areas, we will be able to suggest which repellent will be the most effective for your animal control needs.
