Youngsville wildlife control tip of the month: Do Mothballs or Ammonia Help Repel Wild Animals?
No, is the one and only, simple, Youngsville animal control answer to the question “do mothballs or ammonia help repel wild animals”? Actually, it is said that certain animals may use these repellents as a marker place to dig a whole, typically under a fence, which would, in fact, be doing the opposite of repelling the animal. It would be attracting them. Mothballs are small pellets of a pungent substance, typically naphthalene, put among stored clothes to keep away moths. Ammonia is a neutral gas with a quality pungent odor. It melt in water to give a powerfully alkaline solution. They are over the counter repellents that can be purchased at stores such as Lowe's, Home Depot, or online, but I would advise against if needed to repel wild animals.
Repellents have the purpose to annoy an Youngsville pest control animal with their scent, which an animal will typically ignore the smell. Mothballs contain an ingredient that is extremely toxic, naphthalene, and if one, say a child or pet, is exposed to it, the unfortunate result may be being poisoned.
Most Youngsville wildlife removal pest animals come around in search of something, and they will remain there while they receive what they came for. If this is the case, you can remove what they want, and then choose an effective method that targets the specific species, however the method you use should not be mothballs or ammonia, otherwise the animal is not going to leave by discouragement.
What it is that most Youngsville animal trapping animals are in search of is their necessities to survive: food and shelter. They want a place to live that is warm and dry. The best option is to remove all three of these things, however if you can remove at least two out of three, that can work too. The animal will no longer have what they came for in the first place, now they may leave in a new search for these three things.
Being the fact that both ammonia and mothballs are Youngsville exterminator repellents, there job can only be done is the animal lets it. The wildlife animals have continuously shrinking territories. Due to human expansion, the wooden areas many wildlife animals consider home are being destroyed. The animals are losing their homes and way of life, and being forced into our world in search of any means to survive. In a way it seems we need to repel these wildlife animals because of our own expansion takes away their homes. The animals are being forced to survive by any means, therefore repellents like mothballs and ammonia are ineffective and can simply be ignored by the animal. An annoying odor beats having no food or shelter.
