By BBN Staff: The Belize Forest Department today shared some measures that farmers can take to prevent incidents with wildlife.
These are low-cost measures which can be implemented in farms and homes to prevent incidents by wildlife.
The useful tips are as follows:
Properly securing food sources and disposing of garbage so that wildlife will not have access to it. It can be as easy as ensuring that garbage bins have lids to prevent wildlife from having access to garbage. Direct or indirect feeding of wildlife can be the start of more serious problems in the future.
Keeping areas around your home and farm clean. Wildlife prefers forests or areas where they can hide and attack. Keeping the area around your home and domestic animals clean can help to keep wildlife away.
Installing protective barriers such as proper fencing (including electric fencing) or night enclosures can help to keep your domestic animals safe from predators.
Improving and increasing the lighting around your home and domestic animals can also help keep predators away. In cases where electricity is not available, solar lights are a good option.
Anyone interested in learning more about these and other methods to keep your homes and domestic animals safe from wildlife, can contact the Forest Department at 822-1524.
