Vancouver Fencing Company Recommends Fence Maintenance to Keep Animals Away

Vancouver Fencing Professionals Says Performing Fall Checks and Maintenance Can Help Discourage Foraging Animals From Entering Properties

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - September 12, 2015) - The team members at QS Fencing, a Vancouver Fencing and Gate Installation company, know there are many reasons to put up fencing. One of the most common is to discourage wildlife, and this fencing must be checked and maintained, particularly during the fall season.

"This is a high risk time for wildlife encounters," says a company representative. "As animals start preparing for winter, they will be searching for food, and the lure of scraps and edible garbage can bring bears, skunks, raccoons, and deer closer to neighborhoods and homes."

Although most animals are skittish and pose little threat, there can be altercations, particularly when children are present. It is therefore advisable to anticipate risks and take precautions.

"Look for any holes or erosion at the base of your fence. Check fasteners and holders on metal gates. Make sure they are secure and line up, so nothing can squeeze through. If you do notice something that needs attention, contact a fence repair expert."

With a little attention, you can drastically reduce chance encounters between humans and wildlife. The best advice is to be aware of your surroundings and make sure any barriers in place are maintained for maximum protection.
