Cat Control Sydney - Feral Cat Prevention Tips
Feral Cat Control in Sydney starts with prevention. Here are some tips you can use to keep them out of your home:
Despite your best efforts, stray cats might still get into your space sometimes. Don’t beat yourself up about it; just call Active Pest Control Management for feral cat treatment in Sydney.
After getting your call, we’ll come to your home and perform a thorough pest inspection in Sydney. We do this to accurately determine the scope of the pest problem going on, which will influence our methods.
It’s very helpful if you can point out where you’ve seen pests or even where a nest is. However, we will still perform a full inspection of the building in case there is more than one source or nest. Occasionally, there may even be more than one type of pest that you didn’t know about!
Based on what we learnt from our inspection, we then decide on suitable countermeasures
Everything depends on the severity of the infestation; the treatment may range from simply leaving traps or poison for the pests, to full-on application of pesticides and other more powerful treatments. Don’t worry about vacating the premises, thanks to our completely environmentally-friendly and non-toxic pest control solutions.
After a certain period, we’ll come back to check how effective our solution has been, resetting traps or reapplying pesticides if necessary. If treatment wasn’t as effective as expected, we always have several backup plans. We have a 12-month guarantee on any job, so rest assured that we’re going to stick around and get things done right, letting your property stay pest-free year-after-year.
Baiting and trapping is the typical method for dealing with a feral cat. If the cat hasn’t been neutered or spayed yet, then it will be taken to a facility for that to be done. Under some circumstances, lethal bait or shooting may be used to put down the feral cat.
Adult feral cats are unlikely to be properly socialised. They could become affectionate towards their owner, but remain aggressive to everyone else, especially at the vet. The best course of action is to have them spayed or neutered and leave them be.
Citrus smells from orange or lemon peels are a natural deterrent to cats when scattered on soil. Coffee grounds are also an option for this. Oils such as lemongrass can be utilised as well.
