There are certain areas of your Athens home that are attractive to animals looking for nesting locations, most of all: your roof and your roof vents. Animals that frequent rooflines, like raccoons, squirrels, and birds, are very mobile and exceptional climbers/fliers, which can make it hard to keep them away. Luckily, the team at Critter Control of Athens can help you keep wildlife off your roofline. 706.406.8663
Attic Fan Vent Guards
Attic fan vent guards do more than just help ventilate your attic; they also double as wildlife control. A properly installed attic fan vent guard will keep animals like squirrels out of your attic vents. Wildlife has been known to chew through these guards, so it's important to install a sturdy vent guard that will be squirrel-proof (and wildlife-proof).
Roof Vent Guards
Animals like birds, mice, and squirrels will attempt entry into your home through roof vents. If left unprotected, squirrels can easily get into your home through roof vents, but sometimes die in these vents, leading to horrible odors. Prevent dead animals in vents by securing your roof vent with durable materials like hardware cloth and other metal vents.
Gable Vent Closures
Like attic fan vents, gable vents allow for the circulation of air into your attic, but they also can allow for unintentional wildlife entry. Gable vent closures are an important step in animal-proofing your home. Bats and birds are small enough to slip into attics through gable vents, so ensuring the gable vent is properly secured can save you time and money in the long run.
Soffit Vent Repairs
The underside of rooflines (your home's soffit) is a conspicuous and easy way for clever wildlife to enter your home, especially if your soffit is damaged. Squirrels are frequently responsible for soffit damage, including ripped shingles, damaged gutters, and a weak structure. Keep animals out of your home by letting Critter Control of Athens repair your soffit vents and make sure your roofline is protected against squirrels, raccoons, birds, bats, mice, and more.
