Bear Invasions and Your Sliding Screen Doors

Bear Invasions and Sliding Screen DoorsCan your sliding screen doors stop a hungry bear? California’s Department of Fish and Wildlife estimates that the state’s black bear population currently numbers between 30,000 and 40,000. Given these statistics, the increase of bear intrusions into California residences isn’t surprising. While these furry visitors usually prefer to squeeze through pet doors, open windows or doors carelessly left ajar, they won’t hesitate to destroy your sliding screen doors in their quest for food. 

Quick Tips for Bear-Proofing Your Property 

Ever heard the saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”? Since bears can detect potential food sources from several miles away with their amazing sense of smell, efforts to prevent a bear break-in should focus on two goals:

  • Preventing easy access to your house, garage and vehicles
  • Removing or minimizing enticing food sources and odors

We’re happy to pass along a couple of tips from HouseLogic for keeping these ursine invaders away. Your first step is eliminating or minimizing the presence of outside food sources such as pet food bowls, garbage, composts and dirty grills. You should also close and lock all doors and windows at night and when you leave your home.
