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.

This company has been great. The technician Kensi was very through and checked everywhere to make sure all access points were found. After a skunk was found in the trap on a Saturday morning they came to pick it up very quickly.
Michael was super friendly and knowledgeable. He checked my entire house and recommended and installed the solution within an hour.
We are under contract with your company and so far they are doing a fine job. Many thanks.
Excellent work environment full of presence of God. Professional and dedicated staff. A good place if you want to have your children in a place where Christian values are protected and encouraged.
Great company and amazing service, the staff is extremely knowledgeable and friendly! Thank you to the staff and especially to Bubba for taking care of my property and giving it that "personal touch" to rid and maintain it from pests and bugs! Appreciate you guys and look forward to continuing business together!
So when I went to have my insulation replaced I figured out that I had a critter problem that was beyond anything I was aware of. Not wanting to waste time I decided to call a professional and these guys were really good from day one. From the gentleman who gave the estimate to both of the guys that came out and did the work there was great communication and they were very effective at what they did. One little thing got missed and all it took was one text message and somebody was out the next day to take care of it. They always text me when they're on their way or going to be at the house and they let me know what they found along with photographs. My first thought when they gave me the quote was wow that was a lot of money and I didn't want to spend that much and now that I've had them do the service I feel like it's worth every penny and it's actually pretty damn reasonable considering the number of times that they come out and all the things that they do take care of.
I had an issue with squirrels getting into a small section of roofing without access from the attic or inside of the home. Critter control was a huge help in solving the issue, especially thanks to Brandon and Nate. Ended up catching 3 squirrels living in the roof plus they seal the entrance point after all is said and done. I would absolutely recommend critter control, Brandon and Nate did a stellar job.
Dominick was very friendly and he consistently put on his shoe covers each time he entered the house. He looked over every inch of the storage room where we thought the animal was and did a walk around the yard to see if there was evidence of entry. He was very thorough. He did not find any animal at that time. He said he would leave a trap and review the outside area of the house over the next week. It was the next day that the smell in our storage room indicated that the animal had died. We followed the small and discovered a dead bird in an open storage bin. I would highly recommend Dominick for 'Critter Control'.
Great explanations regarding findings, friendly, quality work! Each encounter with their tech has been professional and educational.
your representative (Dominic) was very friendly and quickly removed the dying raccoon from our outdoor window-well. He also shared information with us regarding raccoons on their behavior, what they liked/disliked, and provided information on how to disinfect the area the raccoon had been trapped in for a couple of days. I'd rate him 9 stars if I could. -pja
