Wildlife Prevention Services

Prevention may be the most important service Critter Control of Southern Wisconsin offers. Wildlife infestations are far more difficult to treat than prevent. Our technicians use professional methods and materials to keep wildlife animals out of your home for good.

Prevention Methods

Using professional knowledge of wildlife habits, habitats and diet preferences, Critter Control of Southern Wisconsin will implement one or a variety of prevention methods.

Habitat Modification

Habitat modification will keep wildlife animals from finding food, water, and shelter accessible on your property - which can lead to animals invading your home. This may include removing food and water sources. Dispose of bird feeders and birdbaths, and keep pet food and water dishes inside. Safe shelter is another reason wildlife animals enter homes and property. Keep brush piles and dead trees to a minimum. Critter Control of Southern Wisconsin can assess your property and explain each step of the habitat modification process to ensure your home and yard does not attract more wildlife animals in the future.

Exclusion Techniques

The most effective form of wildlife prevention is exclusion. Exclusion techniques are barriers that can be installed to prevent wildlife animals from being able to enter your home. There are many forms of exclusion materials, including screening, fencing, and capping. Our wildlife prevention methods are effective and professional - keeping wildlife animals out for good.

Common Wildlife Exclusion Areas:
  • Chimney - Adding chimney caps and screening can prevent animals from falling in or nesting
  • Plumbing vents - Animals seeking shelter can become stuck in plumbing pipes
  • Roof & Fascia Spaces - Poorly sealed points between roof & fascia invite animal entry
  • Roof Vents - Lightweight, flimsy vents should be replaced with heavy secure roof vents
  • Oven & Bathroom Exhaust Vents - Adding screening to vents helps keep animals out
  • Roof/Soffit Intersection - Securing gaps will help prevent animal chewing and entry
  • Holes in Siding - Repairing & reinforching holes will discourage animal infestation
  • Porch & Deck - Durable screening around base prevents nesting animals
  • Trees & Lanscaping - Removal of overhanging tree limbs and encroaching vegetation
