Prevention Methods Critter Control of Oakland can use one, or multiple, prevention methods. Your technician will identify your problem wildlife and each point of entry. Once the problem is identified your technician will begin creating a unique plan of prevention and long-term solutions. Habitat Modification Critter Control of Oakland’s preventative methods begin with habitat modification. This will limit the animal’s attractions and keep pesky animals away from your home. Your technician will limit access to food and water sources, as well as any potential shelter. Dog food should be kept inside, bird baths and feeders should be limited to a small quantity, and piles of brush or woodpiles should be kept far away from your home. These efforts will help keep wild animals away and limit the chances of wildlife entering your home. Exclusion Our exclusionary techniques will create a barrier between the inside of your home and the outside world. Exclusions include sealing entry points, screening vents, capping chimneys, and installing vent guards. Properly implemented exclusion materials will result in long-term wildlife prevention. By locating all points of entry and implementing repair and exclusion techniques, the chances for future wildlife infestation and damage are greatly reduced. While some wildlife appear small and harmless, it is important to remember there are many dangers associated with wild animals. From diseases and parasites to painful bites, an encounter with a wild animal can become a serious health risk.
