The Best & Most Effective Techniques of Professional Wildlife Exclusion

Working with wildlife exclusion professionals is the best way to permanently protect your home from animal intruders — including rodents.

Spotting a rodent in your home is more than a startling sight — it can also be dangerous to your health.

Rodents, like mice and rats, can contaminate food products with droppings and bacteria. It is also possible for some nuisance wildlife such as squirrels and raccoons to transmit rabies and other viruses through droppings and bacteria. Wildlife infested with ticks, mites, or fleas can bring additional pests into your home.

Finding the Wildlife Exclusion Products Right for Your Needs

It doesn’t take long for wildlife to make your house their home — and cause extensive damage.

Once you know you have unwanted wildlife in your home, you know you have a problem. That’s where the techniques of professional wildlife exclusion come in.

Attic & Roof Barriers

From the first-floor windows to the peak of the roof, wildlife exclusion systems shield your home from rodents, bats, and other nuisance wildlife that may find their way inside through the upper-part of the structure.

Technicians will replace and/or seal soffit and fascia with high-performance metal while also sealing ridge vents and any other gaps that could act as entry points to the first floor and the top of the home.

Foundation & Window Barriers

Lower wildlife barriers are the main line of defense for the first floor of the home.

From the first-floor windows down to the foundation, these exclusion products ensure there are no openings for critters to make their way into your home or other structure.

Technicians use premium materials to seal-up the entire area where the home meets the foundation. Any visible holes are filled in, including holes in the foundation, gaps in siding, J-channel, and window trim, as well as corner posts.

This process ensures there isn’t a way for wildlife to get into the lower half of the home, especially when paired with trench barriers.

Trench Barriers

For animals that burrow, technicians use an underground trenching process and a rigid permanent barrier to prevent nuisance wildlife from digging under structures and causing structural damage.

After installation, low-clearance areas like the deck, shed, and other low-clearance areas are protected from wildlife — especially burrowing animals like chipmunks, woodchucks, skunks, rats, and mice.
