What Do Weasel Tracks Look Like?
Perhaps the first signs of a weasel in the area are the footprints they leave behind. Because they are most active in the early mornings and evenings, checking for weasel tracks is easiest during the day. It's imperative to know just what to look for to correctly identify weasel tracks. Due to their small size, it's easy to identify these pests' distinct tracks. A weasel footprint has five clawed toes surrounding a V-shaped paw pad. Weasel tracks often meander a bit, as the pests go from one rodent den to the next in search of food and stop often to look for danger.
Getting Rid of Weasels
Weasels can cause immense damage to chicken coops — just one hungry weasel will often take multiple birds. Whatever it isn't able to eat, the pest drags back to a storage area near its den. As well as the monetary losses, dead poultry can produce unpleasant odors and attract insect pests. A scared weasel may also become hostile toward people and pets. To prevent injury or the loss of valuable livestock, homeowners who discover weasel tracks on the property should seek professional advice.
