Trapping vs Exclusion:
When it comes to wildlife removal, humane trapping and humane wildlife exclusion are the two different methods used to deal with unwanted wildlife in residential or urban areas. Humane trapping involves using a cage or other device to capture the animal without harming it, while humane wildlife exclusion involves using physical barriers such as wire mesh and exclusion devices to allow the animals to vacate but not re enter the area.
One key difference between these two methods is the level of human intervention required. Humane trapping requires someone to physically set and monitor the traps, while humane wildlife exclusion is a passive method that does not require human intervention once the barriers & exclusion device are in place.
Humane exclusion can also provide a more permanent solution to a situation because it not only removes the unwanted wildlife like a raccoon or a skunk, but also prevents new ones from moving in and nesting. Exclusion is generally desired where possibly due to the long term prevention.
Overall, both humane trapping and humane wildlife exclusion are humane methods for dealing with unwanted wildlife, and the best approach will depend on the specific situation and the preferences of the property owner.
Like humans, raccoons eat both meat and plants. In the wild they eat smaller animals like rats, squirrels, snakes, frogs and even fish. They’ll also eat seeds, berries and other plants. In populated areas, though, raccoons like to feast on human food leftovers. They are quite smart and have very versatile paws, so they often scavenge in garbage cans or dumpsters to find food scraps and leftovers.
Like humans, skunks eat both meat and plants. In the wild they eat almost anything as long as it is small: grubs and larvae, earthworms, small rodents and lizards, berries, nuts, leaves and grass. In populated areas, though, skunks prefer human food leftovers. If you hear some rustling around in your garbage at night, there’s a good chance it’s a skunk searching for it’s dinner.
