How to Get Rid of Weasels Humanely
Weasels can cause headaches for homeowners and poultry farmers in many parts of the U.S. Once weasels target a specific food source, they tend to stay in the area until the source is no longer available. If weasels are creating problems on your property, there are plenty of control options that allow you to get rid of the pests without harming them.
Make it difficult for weasels to gain access to your property, particularly areas that may serve as weasel food sources. Seal openings in barns and build weasel-proof barriers around housing for small animals such as chicken coops and rabbit cages. Weasels love to dine on small rodents, so effective rodent control measures can make your property less inviting to them.
Keep weasels away by installing a motion-activated sprinkler that uses a combination of water, sound and motion to scare them off your property.
Live trapping enables you to catch a nuisance weasel without injuring the animal. Use a live trap to capture a weasel and relocate it far away from your property.
