The short answer: yes.
While many of our articles focus on reactive pest control (solving the pest problem once it happens) they also include this one suggestion.
Be preventative for BOTH wildlife and pest control problems.
For example, making sure there are no cracks in the siding of your foundation (to keep bugs out), keeping your chimney blocked off when it’s not in use (to keep bats out), and more.
For wildlife issues – if you have raccoons, coyotes, squirrels causing issues near your home. It’s not a good idea to wait, as these problems will persist and only get worse.
