Seal Animal Entry Points & Cracks in Foundation Homes
If you identify a chewed hole in a wall, a hole in attic, holes in soffits or cracks in foundation, it is important to first determine if the holes are animal related. YOU DO NOT WANT TO SEAL ANIMAL ENTRY POINTS IF THE ANIMALS ARE STILL INSIDE YOUR HOME. You can identify animal entry points by monitoring the areas with the holes and cracks for any animal activity, which may include squirrels, raccoons, birds, rodents and bats. If animals are the culprit, contact a Critter Control professional to assist with animal removal services.
Remember, even if the holes are very small, this does not mean that animals cannot fit through them. Some animals can squeeze their bodies through holes as small as the size of a quarter!
The Best Methods of Sealing Animal Entry Points
Animal entry points in your home may include holes chewed in the walls, cracks in the foundation of your home or holes in your attic and soffits. Repairing these entry points properly is imperative to prevent further animal access into your home. Critter Control can assist with home repairs that may include covering holes with chicken wire or other form of screen, filling foundation cracks, replacing siding or applying other cover solutions.
Why It’s Important to Seal Holes & Cracks in Foundation in Your Home
Sealing off holes within your home, or holes on the exterior of your home, is important in order to prevent animals from entering, getting comfortable and causing significant damage. Many animals seek shelter for nesting within homes; leaving cracks and holes in walls, attics and cracks in foundation is just inviting them in! If animals are entering your home through holes, cracks or gaps in the construction, they could be damaging insulation and electrical wires, leaving as mess of dangerous droppings, or keeping you up all hours of the night with the noises they make.
