Wildlife Prevention Services
Here at Critter Control of Kaw Valley, our team of professional technicians has experience in removing a wide range of wildlife species from your home and making sure they are not able to reenter. Our technicians know exactly what to look for while trying to get rid of your problem; we will use a wide variety of prevention methods such as habitat modification and exclusion methods.
Why is wildlife removal necessary?
Wild animals—like rodents or birds, for example—that aren't addressed promptly can cause serious damage to your home and property. Wildlife control services can often seem like a big hassle, or even an unnecessary process, for the average resident, but Critter Control of Kaw Valley is here to help you make the removal process smooth, quick, and long-lasting. Our professional technicians will take care of your wildlife control and wildlife trapping issue so you can return to the things that matter.
Modifying the Environment
The habitat modification method involves limiting the access points of water, food, and shelter. Wildlife will keep coming back to your home if they have an unlimited supply of any of the three things listed above on your property. By limiting the animal's access and making it difficult to enter these areas, they will have no interest in coming to your property anymore. However, if you do not limit the entry points they will come back and its common for more pests to come in once others are aware of food,water, and shelter. Here at Critter Control of Kaw Valley, our technicians have extensive experience in identifying small wildlife entrances that most untrained homeowners would not notice.
Keep Animals Out—But How?
Are you dealing with persistent critters? The exclusion method is probably the most effective prevention method. This method will include the creation of a barrier between wildlife and your home. By implementing this method, we will be able to keep animals like opossums, raccoons, squirrels, bats, and more out. Some areas we use the exclusion method on are:
Animals that favor your chimney as their entry point to your home include raccoons and birds. Without the proper chimney cap, those critters will make their way inside your chimney and make themselves right at home.
Small animals like mice love to run through your plumbing vents. Many times, they think they're making their way to the kitchen, but they end up in your toilet. To keep animals out of your plumbing vents, we will install the proper mesh or covers for your home.
Roof & Fascia Spaces
Your fascia and roof are entry points that squirrels love to take advantage of. They like to use this space to get into the attic. We will evaluate and seal any entry holes in your roof and fascia to ensure it remains wildlife-free.
Roof vents provide the opportunity for many animals, including birds, squirrels, and more to enter your attic. We will install the vent covers that both maintain the proper airflow for your home as well as keep critters out.
Oven & Bathroom Exhaust Vents
Oven and bathroom exhaust vents are other locations that critters like to crawl into. We will ensure that they have the proper covers over them that keep the airflow your home needs while keeping wildlife outside.
The area where your roof and soffit intersect is another hot spot for animal entry. Animals like squirrels like to use this location to get into your cozy attic. We will evaluate this spot and seal any openings that wildlife may be using.
Holes in Siding
Mice can enter your home through holes in your siding. They can make their way through the tiniest of holes! We will repair the holes in your siding to not only keep critters out but weatherproof your home.
Porch & Deck
Burrowing animals like skunks and chipmunks love to make their way under your porch and deck. We will implement our exclusion techniques in this area as well to keep animals from living under your porch and deck.
Trees & Landscaping
You may have critters taking a bite out of the landscaping you worked so hard on. We can help with that. If you need assistance protecting your yard, call Critter Control of Kaw Valley & Lawrence today.
Foundation gaps are a very common entry point for rodents like mice and rats. These spots aren’t hard to find when rats and mice are exceptionally good at spotting small spaces. However, these small spaces pose as potential threats when being used as an access/entry point.
