White-tailed deer are the most abundant big-game animal found throughout Wisconsin. From a distance, they are beautiful and graceful creatures. With their long, slender legs, they can run up to 40 miles per hour and jump 9-ft fences. Male deer weigh on average 150-pounds while females are a little smaller, weighing roughly 100-pounds. 

Deer prefer to live in densely vegetated areas like forests, farmlands, and brushy areas. These areas provide them with the best protection from predators and the weather’s elements. Deer also look for areas that offer various food sources such as tree leaves, berries, acorns, grass, twigs, wheatgrass, and alfalfa.

Are Deer a Concern?

Deer overpopulation can be a problem if not controlled. The biggest concern is automotive collisions with deer which can result in extensive property damage, bodily injury, or potentially death. Deers are also attracted to plants with high vitamin content and phytonutrient levels which can cause them to eat away at your gardens or landscaping. Lastly, deer ticks travel on deers – hence their name – which can lead to tick problems in your yard if they fall off the deer. Deer ticks are the most common tick species to be carriers of Lyme Disease. 

It is very difficult to prevent deer from entering your yard, especially if you have a large piece of property or live by a wooded area. At Advanced Wildlife Control, we do offer a few services for deer-related problems. We can use natural deer repellents around gardens and trees to repel deers from eating them. If an injured deer wanders onto your property and dies after being hit by a car, we can come out and remove the dead deer from your property. Lastly, we offer affordable and effective tick control sprays to eliminate and kill ticks in your yard. 

Our goal here at Advanced Wildlife Control is to make sure your animal control problems are taken care of as quickly as possible. Therefore, we can be out at your property on the same day when you call or the next day. We do not require any contracts for our customers.
