Encourage wildlife to come into your backyard

Attracting backyard wildlife provides natural entertainment for your family and friends. It can be magical to watch birds create a nest and raise their young right before your eyes, or make daily visits to your home to feed. Whether you live in the country or the city, there are ways to encourage wildlife into your backyard.

Provide Food

The animals will come if you offer them something to eat. Keep in mind that general food sources will attract a wide variety of animals. If you want to attract a specific breed of bird or insect, you'll need to research their food preferences. For instance, adult butterflies that are searching for nectar are attracted to orange, yellow, red, purple or pink blossoms.

Animals need clean sources of water for drinking, bathing and reproduction. A water source could include ponds, streams or wetlands, depending on where you live. In urbanized areas, you can create rain gardens, bird baths or a preformed pond. You should change any standing water every two to three days during warm weather when mosquitoes breed as a form of mosquito control . This prevents mosquito eggs from hatching and unleashing a cloud of pests to your backyard.

Animals need cover to feel safe from predators. If you don't offer adequate protection, backyard wildlife will shorten their visits and go somewhere else. Along with cover, having a yard that is quiet with little or no outdoor activity will attract far more animals. If you have the ideal backyard wildlife habitat, animals will choose your yard to build their homes and raise their young.
