So, you have a wild animal that is frequently coming into your yard and you have just had enough. Whether you are talking about a fox, possum, squirrel, raccoon, or other kind of critter, there becomes a point where you simply may be far too annoyed with this critter and feel that it has to go. Many of these animals will get into stuff around your property, eat your pet’s food, knock over your trash cans, or even try to gain access into your house.
By taking action to permanently resolve the problem you make sure that you never have to battle this again. However, you may not know what are some ways to kill a wild animal in the yard of your home. Here is a few suggestions for you.
The first of these, if you are a good shot, is to simply sit out on your porch and wait for the animal to come into yard, then blowing it away. That way she a bit too far-fetched for some people, but there are many of you out there who are great shots, and so shooting one of these little animals would be no problem for you. You kill it, problem solved!
You could leave different kinds of poison pellets around the yard. The critter comes onto your property, eats the pellets, and a brief time later it dies. This could work well for you, but you also need to understand that if the pellets are available to these critters, then they may be available to your pet as well. In less you want to take the risk that your little cat or dog will eat these, this is not a great choice.
There were several different kinds of traps that work that will kill animals. For example, if you have a mole that is getting around in your yard, there are traps that you can set up where you put the trap directly over a known tunnel location for the mole. As it moves through that tunnel, it activates the trap, pushing three large spikes down into the tunnel and crushing the mole. This can be extremely effective and gets rid of your problem permanently.
Depending upon the kind of animal that you are talking about, you could simply put up some other kind of trap, capture the animal, and then let it starve to death. For example, if a possum gets into a trap that you have placed in your yard, if it is left in there for a day or two without food or water that is going to die. This may not seem like the most humane of options available, but it will work.
To be honest, there are actually quite a few different options that are available to you. These are just a few of them that you can employ to get rid of your wild animal problem. Always consider before making any decision that you need to protect your safety before dealing with any kind of animal like this.
