Signs a Bobcat is on Your Property
A bobcat lingering around your property poses a threat to your home and any small animals or pets that you have living there. Bobcats have sharp claws and teeth and can be dangerous if they are roaming uncontrollably on your property. So, if you are worried about these animals on your property, it is time to call the experts at Trutech to solve your bobcat problem.
Dangers of Bobcat Infestation
Bobcats rarely attack humans. However, they do pose a threat to pets and livestock. Domestic animals, including house cats, poultry, lambs, goats, and small pigs, are easy prey for these strong cats. In addition, bobcats mark their territory with urine and feces, as well as scratch and tear up lawns, resulting in unsightly piles of dirt and debris with a strong, musky-smelling scent.
Humane Bobcat Removal & Control Strategies
Entry into property
Bobcats rarely enter homes and tend to avoid overly developed areas. These predators often travel in predictable patterns, moving between familiar resting areas and hunting grounds. Their territory range tends to include between one and six square miles.
Trapping & Removal
Bobcats are particularly difficult to control because, once they mark territory or find prey in yards, they are more likely to return. In fact, this is the reason trapping and moving them is often unsuccessful. In addition to being illegal in some states, trapping also does not solve the initial cause of the infestation. If prey animals are not eliminated from the property after a bobcat is caught and removed, a new bobcat will likely take its place. The best way to safely and effectively deal with bobcat problems is to call the trained wildlife experts at Trutech.
Prevention & Exclusion
To keep bobcats from visiting yards, limit possible food sources. Bring small outdoor pets and their food inside overnight and avoid overfilling bird feeders. Feeding wildlife that might be attractive to bobcats, such as feral cats, deer, and rabbits, is another practice to avoid. To keep poultry and livestock safe outdoors, enclose them in secure pens with well-fitted doors. Since bobcats are able to jump up to 10 feet high, pens should have strong wire mesh overhead as well.
Frequently Asked Questions
Bobcat attacks on humans are unlikely, as they are timid and solitary animals that do not typically initiate contact with people. Bobcats tend to avoid overly developed areas. However, these cats are still dangerous. It is not always immediately obvious when they are in the vicinity, which makes accidental encounters possible. Since bobcats have the speed, claws, and teeth to take down much larger animals, people should avoid them.
Dangerous complications arise when pets or outdoor food sources attract bobcats into yards. For example, a bobcat will attack dogs and cats that are left outside. A constantly replenished supply of pet food also makes the pests feel comfortable in the backyard environment, increasing the chance of conflicts. Therefore, homeowners should bring in pets and their food dishes overnight.
We have a few options when it comes to removing feral cats from crawl spaces. Our first option is to employ feral cat traps with a few different techniques (pre-baiting the area, different scents, potentially a drop trap if it still refuses to come near). Our other option in this case would be to remove the cat using a catch pole.
