Wildlife Prevention Methods

Backyard entrance prevention ClevelandCritter Control of Cleveland's professional wildlife proofing technicians have experience in keeping a wide range of wildlife species from getting into your home and making sure they can't re-enter.  Our technicians know just what to look for while trying to get rid of your problem, and we may use an array of prevention methods, such as physical methods like fencing and modifications to the surrounding landscape.

Making Changes to Landscape

A change you can make is to wildlife-proof your Cleveland property by removing potential hiding spots and nesting areas that are appealing to wildlife critters. The changes to the habitat also limit the amount of food and water available to the wildlife.

Understandably, if you continue to provide access to these items for wildlife critters, they will continue to come back. Our technicians have extensive experience in identifying small wildlife entrances that most untrained homeowners would not think to look for. 

How To Keep Animals Out

The most effective method of wildlife prevention involves installing materials. These exclusion methods will create a physical barrier between your wildlife animal and the inside of your home, effectively keeping them outside where they belong. If you're dealing with a determined animal, exclusion methods are the best way to keep wildlife under control. This method can help you keep animals like bats, opossums, raccoons, and moles off your property and out of your house. Some common areas in which we utilize these exclusion methods are: 

  • 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
    • Birds are a common culprit when it comes to getting into your Cleveland home through oven vents.
  • Roof & Fascia Spaces
  • Ceiling Vents 
  • Chimneys 
  • Pipes
