Please note that, in many instances, “Critter Prevention” is something that can be done by the resident by following some simple steps; keeping your yard well-maintained, closing off “open” areas underneath decks, patios, etc; making sure all holes in garages/sheds are sealed off. The elimination of alley garbage pickup should go a long way in reducing the critter presence.
