The population of monkeys has increased at an alarming rate in the last few decades.
And if you live in an area with wild monkeys, you probably know just how these stealthy and intelligent animals can wreak havoc in a home.
Thankfully, there are a few ways to keep monkeys away from your home. Read on to know more.
Use completely safe bins. Food readily available in garbage areas will encourage monkeys to enter residential areas and even homes.
Monkey-proof your home. Cover your windows with mesh and keep your windows and balcony doors latched.
