Animal Exclusion Services

In order to effectively prevent wildlife from entering your home or property, Critter Control Grand Rapids makes use of several methods of modification and exclusion. Habitat modification entails identifying and limiting access to food, water or shelter for the specific animals you may be having issues with. Exclusion techniques may include sealing entry points, putting up fences or barricades, placing screens over vents or establishing other barriers to ensure that animals.

Depending on the species or animal, some techniques may be more effective than others. Improperly implemented techniques may cause more harm than good. The wildlife professionals at Critter Control Grand Rapids have the experience and training necessary to quickly identify the offending animal and create an effective plan of defense.

Excluding wildlife from an area of your home or property that is being damaged can be the best approach to long term wildlife control. Though trapping the animal solves current infestation issues, it does not protect from future wildlife invaders. By locating all points of animal entry and implementing repair and exclusion techniques, Critter Control Grand Rapids eliminates the chances of future animal infestation and damage.

Animal Exclusion Points

Here are some exclusion points to keep in mind: 

  • Chimney – 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

While some wildlife appears small and harmless, it is important to remember there are many dangers associated with wild animals. From diseases and parasites to painful bites, a wildlife encounter can become a serious risk. To protect yourself and your family, call a trained professional to handle any wildlife issues.
