Wildlife Exclusion Serviceswildlife prevention under porch

Critter Control of Boston uses several methods of wildlife prevention and exclusion to keep wildlife from entering your home and/or property. Using both exclusion materials and habitat modifications will increase the effectiveness of wildlife prevention and lower chances of wildlife entry and damages.

Exclusion Methods

Using professional materials, Critter Control of Boston will install a barrier between the outside wildlife animals and the inside of your home. Exclusion can be one of the best methods of prevention.

Habitat Modification

Removing access to a food supply, water supply, and any nesting areas will limit the traffic of wildlife animals on your property. Habitat modifications help keep wildlife animals off your property and out of your home.

Tested Techniques

Due to the varied nature and intelligence levels of animal species and their habits some exclusion techniques may be more effective than others. Critter Control of Boston will determine what wildlife animal you are dealing with and create a corrective course of action.

Misidentification or improper prevention technique may cause more harm than good. Trust the professionals at Critter Control of Boston to handle your wildlife control problem with experience and confidence.

Have it Done Right, the First Time

Excluding wildlife from an area of your home or property that is being damaged can be the best approach to long-term wildlife control. While trapping a nuisance animal solves current animal infestation issues, it does not address future wildlife invaders. By locating all points of animal entry and implementing repair and exclusion techniques, the chances for future animal infestation and damage are greatly reduced.

Our professional wildlife technicians will find existing or potential future points of entry created by unwanted wildlife. From squirrels or raccoons in the attic, to bats in the eaves, mice in the walls, rats in the basement, and skunks under your deck. All of these animals get there because they’ve found a way in, and it’s our job to fix that. We implement our prevention strategies to ensure the elimination of recurrent wildlife invasions.

Animal Exclusion Points:
  • 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 that there are many dangers associated with wild animals. From diseases and parasites to painful bites, a wildlife encounter can become a serious health risk. To protect yourself and your family, call Critter Control of Boston to inspect all wildlife issues.
