Methods of Wildlife Prevention

Exclusion of wildlife from your home is the best approach to long-term wildlife control as it will prevent future wildlife invaders. By locating all the points the wildlife is entering and making habitat modifications, the chances for future animal infestation and damage are greatly reduced. Our experience technicians will find every point of entry for the unwanted animals, from squirrels in the walls to mice in the floors. We will locate, trap, remove and prevent these critters from further infestation.

Habitat Modification

Habitat modifications are necessary when a wild animal is causing issues by invading your space. This may require keeping pet food and water inside, removing birdbaths and feeders and keeping brush piles to a minimum. Basically, remove what is enticing to the wildlife and blocking off entry points will prevent them from wanting to stick around.


When mice get into your home, we have to use exclusion materials at entry points and prevent further invasion! This can involve vent screening, caulking seals, chimney caps and vent guards. Establishing these barriers will keep the wildlife animals outside of your home back where they belong in the wild.
