Animal Prevention

Animal Prevention

I offer prevention services to help keep wildlife from entering attics, keep birds from roosting and more. I make use of several methods of habitat modification and exclusion to effectively prevent wildlife from entering your home or property. Habitat modification entails identifying and limiting access to food, water or shelter for the target species. Exclusion techniques may include sealing entry points, placing screens over vents or establishing other barriers to intrusion from wildlife. Minor repairs can prevent major damage. A small hole in your fascia board, attic vent, dormer gap 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 me inspect your home and plug these entrance points before they become a larger issue.

Opened soffits and poorly constructed soffits allow birds to nest in the eves and let raccoon and squirrel to enter the attic. Not only do I just repair soffits but I add a plywood backing to seal any gap left during construction.
