Preventing Future Wildlife Intrusions

The difference between Critter Control of Tallahassee and our competitors is that we will not only remove your wildlife intruder, we will also work with you to seal off any potential points of entry that could be a site for future wildlife intrusion. Through the use of efficient and effective wild animal control prevention techniques, we'll examine your home through the eyes of a potential wildlife intruder - whether it's a raccoon, rat, squirrel, or another critter - and determine all possible points of entry. Our exclusion techniques include placing screens vents, installing chimney caps, sealing entry holes, or establishing other barriers to intrusion from target species. We ensure that the following areas in your home, if present, are properly sealed:   

  • 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

Critter Control of Tallahassee also makes use of several methods of habitat modification and exclusion techniques to effectively prevent future wildlife problems from arising. Habitat modification entails limiting access to food, water or shelter for the wildlife intruder. Due to the varied nature and intelligence level of animal species and their habits, some exclusion techniques may be more effective than others. Improperly implemented control techniques may cause more harm than good by creating a situation where an animal has learned to avoid traps and baits. The wildlife professionals at Critter Control of Tallahassee have the experience and training to quickly identify the offending animal and develop an effective plan of defense.
