Keeping Wildlife Out Of Your House

All homes have natural gaps and holes that are ideal points of entry for pest animals such as Raccoons, Squirrels, Bats and Birds.

Some examples are:

  • Roof - Fascia Spaces (pictured at right)
  • Chimneys
  • Roof Exhaust vents
  • Dryer Exhaust vents

Unprotected these access points will be exploited by pest animals such Raccoons, Squirrels, Bats and Pigeons looking for shelter.

Pest animals will pick away at gaps in a roof line (as pictured at right) until the breach is big enough to access easily. Once this occurs and the animal has taken up residence in your home you will require an extraction. Preventative efforts are a superior choice as you will not be exposed to subsequent damage like:

  • Parasites and harmful bacteria from animal wastes
  • Contaminated Insulation that needs to be replaced
  • Fire from animals chewing on wiring
  • Water damage if roof vent is compromised
  • The higher expense of animal extraction compared to animal prevention

Once a pest has breached your home The Raccoon Guys will use several techniques to humanely remove the critter including - one way doors, traps, and snares. Pictured at left is a one way door used for squirrels who are too small to be removed using traditional one-way door technology. The barbs allow the squirrel to exit but prevent re-entry. After a few days, the hole is closed and it is recommended that the roof line be secured.
