Animal Exclusion Services

At Critter Control of Athens, we pride ourselves on using the most up-to-date, cutting-edge methods in the wildlife removal industry to modify the habitat, home, and surrounding property to prevent wildlife from spending time near human-inhabited areas and causing trouble. With regard to the habitat, our team will identify all entry points and limit access to food, water, and potential shelter for the problem animal. Our exclusion methods include sealing points of entry or introducing other types of barriers so the problem species 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, you must put animal exclusion methods in place.

Animal Exclusion Points:

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

  • Chimneys—Chimneys provide a perfect perfect point of access for pests to get in. Animals like squirrels and raccoons 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, rats, and birds looking for food or shelter can break into your home through the plumbing vents. Once inside, wildlife animals can become lost in the vents, get stuck which causes even more problems. 

  • Roof, Fascia, and Soffit—There are many places on your Athens roof that animals can take advantage of.

    • Roof vents provide access for smaller and/or determined animals. The warm air that escapes can entice 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. Once removed, the exposed roof can be impacted by the elements, which weakens it enough to the point where it is easy for animals to chew through. 

  • Siding—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 access into or onto things they're not supposed to. Critter Control of Athens's wildlife technicians will know which trees or plants might be potential problems.
