Animal Exclusion Points

Wildlife animals will find the smallest, most hidden areas to enter your home. Critter Control of Houston will determine each one and get them repaired. Below is a list of animal exclusion points that Critter Control will NOT overlook.

  • 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 & reinforcing holes will discourage animal infestation
  • Porch & Deck – Durable screening around base prevents nesting animals
  • Trees & Landscaping – Removal of overhanging tree limbs and encroaching vegetation

While some wildlife appear small and harmless, it is important to remember there are many dangers associated with wild animals.
