Animal Exclusion Services

With Critter Control of Athens, we pride ourselves on using the most advanced methods in the industry to modify the habitat, home, and surrounding property to prevent wildlife from causing issues. In regard to the habitat, we identify and limit access to food, water, and shelter of the problem animal. Our exclusion efforts include sealing points of entry or introducing other types of barriers so that the species causing problems can no longer access places they're not supposed to. 

Trapping and removing animals from your property is just one step of the problem. There is still nothing preventing other critters from making their way into your home or onto your property to cause problems. In order for effective, long-term wildlife control animal exclusion must be put into place.

Sometimes putting an incorrect exclusion technique into place may be harmful. Pests may learn to circumvent the efforts and become even harder to deal with. Our trained technicians at Critter Control of Athens are experts at analyzing the environment to deal with animal exclusion. In order to avoid making the problem even worse, call us today!


Animal Exclusion Points:

There are many potential points of access for unwanted animals to get in or around your home.


Chimneys provide a perfect perfect point of access for pests to get in. Animals like squirrels and racoons can easily climb down them and enter your home. Birds have also been known to fall down chimneys and get stuck in homes. Finally, bats looking for a place to roost find perfect sanctuary within chimneys. 

Plumbing Vents

Animals like snakes and rats looking for food can break into your home through the plumbing vents. Once inside, animals can become lost in the vents and get stuck which causes even more problems. 

Roof, Fascia, and Soffit

There are many places on the roof that animals can get into. Vents provide access to smaller and/or determined animals. The warm air that comes out entices creatures to make their way inside. If the space between the roof and fascia becomes exposed or creatures chew through it, it can provide easy access to the attic or indoors. Soffits are on the underside of the fascia and are usually less secure. If an animal decides to make its way through, it can cause many problems for the homeowner or invite other unwanted guests inside. Finally, animals dead set on getting in can rip off the shingles. Ones removed, the exposed roof can get weathered which makes it easy for animals to chew through. 


Like shingles, siding can be damaged or ripped off by animals. The exposed material can wear away even more or be chewed on. This makes it easy for animals to make points of access to the home. 

Trees & Landscaping

Overhanging limbs of trees can provide a way for critters to get into or onto things they're not supposed to. Critter Control technicians know which trees or plants might be potential problems.
