Exclusion & Habitat Modification
Critter Control uses several methods of habitat modification and exclusion to prevent wildlife from entering your home or property. Wildlife exclusion services provide the full solution to wildlife incursions to your property. Prevention services limit access to food, water, or shelter for the target species.
Animal Exclusion Techniques:
- Chimney – Chimney caps and screens can prevent animals from falling in or nesting
- Plumbing Vents – Properly excluded vents can prevent animals from seeking shelter and becoming stuck in plumbing pipes
- Roof & Fascia Spaces – Sealing entry points between the roof and fascia will discourage animal entry
- Roof Vents – Lightweight, flimsy vents should be replaced with heavy secure roof vents
- Oven & Bathroom Exhaust Vents – Adding vent covers will keep animals out
- Roof/Soffit Intersection – Securing soffit gaps will help prevent easy animal entry
- Holes in Siding – Repairing & reinforcing holes will discourage animal infestation
- Porch & Deck – Installation of durable rat walls around base prevents animal entry
- Trees & Landscaping – Removal of overhanging tree limbs and encroaching vegetation denies easy access to your home
The Wildlife Exclusion Solution
The professionals at Critter Control have the experience and training to quickly identify the offending animal and develop an effective plan of defense. Critter Control will find every point of entry, implement our prevention strategies, and eliminate recurring wildlife invasions in your home or property. Call Critter Control today for effective wildlife prevention.
Because of the varied intelligence and behavior of animal species, some prevention techniques are more effective than others. If a technique is improperly executed, the target animal can learn to defeat it. This can cause even more damage to your property, which is why these techniques require experienced professionals.
While some wildlife appear 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 health risk. To protect yourself and your family, call a trained professional to inspect all wildlife issues.
Wildlife exclusion is the best approach to long-term wildlife control. While removing a nuisance animal solves an immediate problem, it does not address future 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.
Minor Repairs Prevent Major Damage
A small hole in your fascia board, attic vent, dormer or gable vent can allow flying squirrels, red squirrels, mice and bats into your home, where they can leave droppings, urine, fleas and ticks in your attic. Let a Critter Control specialist inspect your home and plug these entrance points before they become a larger issue.

Great people to work with!
John with CC has helped us twice in the last six years - first with a minor mouse problem, and then in troubleshooting a mystery animal that was raising a ruckus on the roof. In each case he was friendly, professional, and offered excellent guidance on the practical solutions. Highly recommend him, and this company.
Squirrels chewed siding of chimney. CC tech came out to assess situation. Fortunately animals not in attack. CC repair team came out and repaired damage and did a fine job. Very pleased with the business, their work and customer service.
Cannot say enough wonderful things about this company and Joe especially. We recently found a bat in our basement…SCARY! Called and asked for help, Joe came out at 8pm and was able to search the house, capture the bat safely and removed it from our home. His customer service was priceless to me and I highly recommend this company to everyone. Post visit he even sent a team to further assess our property and provide a quote for future needs.
They helped get rid of bats at our house and were friendly and easy to work with, highly recommend
We appreciated the quick response and the careful service by David Gleason. He explained each step of the process. He also returned to reset traps that had been sprung. He was professional and friendly. We highly recommend Critter Control.
Bryan was great. On time, professional, friendly. Most importantly, honest. No lies, no fear tactics, no gimmicks. Assessed the issue and was honest about the lack of work that actually needed to be done/was recommended, knowing that other places had dramatized and given several thousand dollar (4k+) estimates on a job that costs a couple hundred dollars. Can't recommend enough. Will be using for any future issues.
I’ve been using them for several years now. They are great!
Removed bats from our house and sealed up other areas of concern. Very responsive, explained things throughly to us, and did the work in a very timely manner. Much better than their two competitors that we also called. I would highly recommend them.
We have been having issues in our yard, and recently discovered large holes. Called this team, they immediately came out and determined the holes were partially exposed mole tunnels. They took care of the tunnels (as best they could), and trapped and caught a mole for removal. They were responsive, knowledgeable, and thorough. While I hope it is not needed - we would certainly reach out to them again should a need arise!
