Helpful products to reduce wildlife conflicts:

  • See Bears? Don’t Feed Bears! Washington, DC is home to many species of animals, including the Black Bear. Here are some important tips to consider if and when you come in contact with a Black Bear.
  • One-Way Doors: When animals have entered a building through a hole in the wall, siding, or roof, the door allows animals to exit the damaged area and not be able to re-enter.
  • Bat Cone: Similar to a one-way door, the Bat Cone allows bats and squirrels to exit through the cone and not be able to re-enter.
  • Liquid Fence: Scent and taste deterrent geared towards deer and their foraging techniques, but also useful for other species.
  • Critter Ridder: Scent and taste deterrent geared towards small mammals.
  • Scarecrow: A motion-activated sprinkler that frightens any animals within its perimeter with a burst of water.
  • Chimney and vent covers for blocking potentially wildlife-accessible entrances into your home.

WHS receives no benefit for recommending these products; we do so, because they have proven to work time and time again.
