How to Get Rid of Weasels

These tiny pests can often be found in your yard or garden and are usually searching for a source of food or shelter. Weasels often prey on rats, birds, chickens, rabbits, and insects. Taking control of an infestation is difficult because they’re persistent and clever creatures. Destroying their burrows is effective but often harms or kills the weasels. Our team strives to ensure that the weasels we remove from your home are safe and are relocated. You can try some things at home to help curb and hopefully remove your weasel infestation, but if that doesn’t help, don’t hesitate to call our professional team. Here are some tips on how to get rid of weasels:

  • Weasel Exclusion – One of the first steps either you or our professionals will take is to seal any potential openings in your yard or home. This includes cracks, crevices, or gaps under your door. We’ll inspect your home to identify any areas of concern to help prevent the destruction caused by weasels.
  • Properly Store Your Food – This tip is mainly for those who have birds or chickens, but a great way to ensure you avoid a weasel infestation is to remove any possible food sources that would draw them in. While chicken feed isn’t a main staple in a weasel’s diet, the rodents that feed on chicken feed are. Our pest control professionals will help you identify any possible concerns and suggest how to avoid infestation best.
  • Repellents – You can get several different repellents that can seek out approaching weasels and spray them with water to keep them away. If you choose this method, we’ll work with you to determine the best repellent placement to keep your yard safe. Another thing you can do is to make your yard less welcoming to weasels by eliminating attractive sources of food and cover by regularly mowing your lawn, trimming bushes or shrubs, and more.
  • Trap – A great humane choice is to trap the weasel so it can be safely relocated. Our pest control team will help you determine the best trap for your property while allowing you to choose the best trap placement. Once these are placed, our team will check back to see if there is a pest we need to relocate.
