Critters invading homes

Local News

If you’ve been seeing an increase in critters around your home you aren’t alone, there has been a steady increase in critter calls since the weather has gotten warmer, and we have a few tips on how to keep your yard free of those critters.

Michelle Buchanan with the Critter Chicks says you shouldn’t be feeding wild animals.

“Definitely do not feed animals, they are very resilient, they can take care of themselves,” Buchanan says, “what happens when people feed the animals, the population tends to increase and then it’s actually detrimental to their health they actually end up starving eventually because they don’t have enough food.”

It should be noted that it is illegal to feed deer and bear in New York state, but you should never feed any wildlife that should happen to come into your area.
