Prevention Methods

Depending on your wildlife problem, your technician may use one, or multiple, prevention methods. Each technique is chosen specifically to prevent your wildlife problem, no matter how smart the wildlife may be. Your technician can use any or all of the below prevention methods to keep wildlife out of your home:

  • Chimney capping — Adding chimney caps and screening can prevent animals from falling in or nesting
  • Plumbing vents — Animals seeking shelter can become stuck in plumbing pipes
  • Roof & fascia spaces — Poorly sealed points between roof & fascia invite animal entry
  • Roof vents — Lightweight, flimsy vents should be replaced with heavy secure roof vents
  • Oven & bathroom exhaust vents — Adding screening to vents helps keep animals out
  • Roof/soffit intersection — Securing gaps will help prevent animal chewing and entry
  • Holes in siding — Repairing & reinforcing holes will discourage animal infestation
  • Porch & deck — Durable screening around base prevents nesting animals
  • Trees & landscaping — Removal of overhanging tree limbs and encroaching vegetation
