Bat Exclusion – Getting Rid Of Bats From The Attic
Bat work is more of a construction based service compared to others. Bat exclusion is done in a humane manner and live exclusion is the only legal way to remediate bat problems. Exclusion is a time-consuming process which entails sealing all parts of the building and installing one-way devices over the main entry. This allows the bats to exit the structure unharmed and blocks them from reentry.
Raccoon Exclusion – Sealing Holes Inflicted By Raccoons.
Raccoons will often tear large holes in a roof to gain access, and the entrances will need sealing up after the raccoons have been trapped. Sheet metal is a common material used to put over the gaping holes on edges of a home, or sometimes the roof will need patching when raccoons rip through shingles and plywood. Though sometimes raccoon exclusion can work – there is no guaranteeing the animals will not be able to access the home long term. They are simply too clever and can generally find a way back into a home with little effort, even after exclusion.
Squirrel Exclusion – Trapping Squirrels & Repairing Damages.
Squirrels often chew holes through various parts of a home, usually around the roofline. When an animal does this, it’s time to go! Repairing squirrel damage is generally not too time consuming, although at times they will chew multiple holes. Holes are generally wired off with hardware cloth or other durable material.
Mouse and Rat Exclusion – Every Little Crack Needs Sealed
Mice and rats are the most common home invaders out of many species of rodents. They usually gain access to a home by squeezing through exposed cracks already existing around the foundation or roofline. Rodent exclusion generally takes place before or during the process of trapping/baiting.
Skunk Exclusion – Deck Barriers & Trenching
Skunks will not usually cause too much damage to a home, although the very presence of a skunk is enough to be a nuisance. Skunks will often seek harborage under decks and the only way to permanently get rid of the skunks is to perform a process known as trenching – where wire or other material goes around the deck.
Mole Exclusion – Trapping & Removal
There is actually no long term barrier that can keep moles off your property. Since they can burrow tunnels around or under just about anything, it makes any preventative barrier pointless. The only effective strategy is to trap the moles every time new evidence presents itself. Some companies also use poison worms as a long term solution, although this method is less effective than trapping.
Opossum Exclusion – Deck Barriers & Sealing Holes
Generally, opossums will infest areas of residential & commercial property including decks and patios, attics, and utility sheds. When opossums have dug their way under a deck or patio, trenching around the area and installing wiring around the edges has proven the best way to keep opossums out after trapping has taken place. In parts of southern USA, opossums will find their way into attics. They should be trapped and removed promptly and then any holes on the roof would be sealed up to prevent reentry in the future.
Bird Exclusion – Sealing Previous Entries
Birds will often gain access to a home by slipping through exposed holes leading to the attic. The most frequent area of infestation on a home is through dryer and attic vents. The birds can be trapped or excluded using a one-way device. After the birds are successfully exterminated the wildlife control professional will seal up the holes on the roof. If the birds were in a vent a new cover can be installed, preferably one that is durable enough to keep future birds out.
