Port Moody Wildlife & Animal Control Services
The City of Port Moody is located 26 kilometres east of Vancouver and is bordered by Coquitlam on the east and south, Burnaby on the west, and by the Villages of Belcarra and Anmore to the north. It's the smallest of the Tri-Cities, which includes Coquitlam and Port Coquitlam.
With 27 kilometres of waterfront, Port Moody hugs the east end of the Burrard Inlet and has both saltwater coastal wetlands and freshwater inland wetlands. These areas are a source of biodiversity and provide breeding grounds and habitats for a variety of wildlife species.
The City also has one of the highest areas of parks and open spaces in the region and is surrounded by a rich natural landscape with over one-third of its land mass dedicated as parkland. These watercourses and greenways can serve as corridors for wildlife travel to urban areas such as your backyard and ultimately to the inside of your home and business. Urban pests include such species as raccoons, squirrels, mice, and rats (particularly Norway and roof rats).
Important precautions to take to minimize urban wildlife migration to your property include:
- Limit access to areas of your yard that may provide shelter and dens, including under/in sheds and wood piles.
- Keep ground clear of seeds (use rodent-proof bird feeders) to detract squirrels, mice and rats.
- Don't leave extra pet food out and store it in a secure container.
- Put food scraps in your Green Waste Cart, not your Garbage Cart.
- Compost responsibly by turning it over regularly, covering with leaves, lime and soil to reduce odours.
- Reduce vegetative cover (trim vines from buildings and fences).
