How to Protect Your Pole Barn from Animals

Animals such as birds, squirrels, and raccoons often seek shelter and security inside buildings. They are likely to do this to escape cold winter temperatures and to find a safe place to give birth and raise their babies. Once they get in, it can be difficult to get them to leave.

Animals can cause serious damage to buildings. They can burrow through openings, chew on wood or wires, and give birth inside buildings, under roofs, and in walls. If you have built a pole barn on your property, you should take steps to keep animals out and inspect it periodically to make sure that none have slipped by you and made it inside.

Check the inside of your pole barn occasionally for signs of animals, such as a nest, droppings, or footprints. You should also take precautions to keep them out. Be sure that your pole barn is constructed properly and well sealed to prevent animals from entering. Animals often try to get in through spaces in roofs, siding, and vents.

If you find evidence of an animal living inside your pole barn, you need to have it removed before it causes damage to your building or whatever you have stored in it. Don’t try to do this yourself. Wild animals can scratch or bite if they feel threatened, and some may carry diseases such as rabies. It is best to hire a professional wildlife removal company to trap and relocate the animal.

Once you have removed the animal, you need to figure out how it got into your pole barn in the first place. Inspect the exterior of the building for an entry point and repair or seal it to keep other animals from getting inside in the future.

If you cannot find the entry point yourself or do not feel confident in your ability to fix damage or seal openings, it is better to hire a professional contractor to make the necessary repairs. Having the job done right can help you ensure that animals won’t get into your pole barn again and cause further damage to the building or its contents.
