How To Keep Animals Out


The best way to prevent animals from entering a home is to install blockers. Physical barriers keep you apart from the animal, and allow for the animal to stay in their habitat in the outdoors. This method can help you keep animals like bats, opossums, raccoons, and moles off your property and out of your house. Physcal blocking is most popularly used in these areas: 

  • Trees & Landscaping 
  • Porch & Deck 
    • More solitary creatures like opossums and skunks like to spend time around your porch or deck.
  • Where Roofs and Soffits Meet
    • This area offers an easy access point into your attic for curious and persistent animals like mice and rats.
  • Bathroom Vents 
  • Oven Vents
