What is Wildlife Exclusion?

Exclusion means sealing off entry points for animals to your home or business in a way that stops them getting in. It’s much easier than trying to exclude wildlife all by yourself.

AAAC Wildlife Exclusion Services offers humane exclusion services for any wildlife that may pose a threat to your home or business. Our exclusion experts are well-trained to safely and accurately complete the task.

We can help if there are animals living underneath your house or inside your walls. We will seal any possible entry points, including cracks in floors, cement cracks, or pipes.

How We Conduct Wildlife Control and Exclusion Services

If you have found nuisance wildlife in your home, business or property, and are thinking about getting rid of them by trapping. However, trapping alone won’t fix your problem. You might exterminate the first infestation, but without wildlife exclusion services, you are just waiting until the next group of critters decides to move in. These are the steps we take in order to stop the infestation cycle by using animal exclusion technologies:

Find and seal all entry points:

We first look for all the possible access points animals might use. This includes holes in floors and cement cracks around pipes – basically, any place an animal could gain access to your home. This includes holes in roof shingles, soffits, eaves, fascia, and roof flashing as well. Then we block off those access points. Sometimes, this is done by drilling rubber grommets or metal grommets over the hole. This creates a seal. We can also use wire mesh to cover holes. The third step is to cover the blocked hole with a weatherproof cover. This will protect it from wind, rain, and snow. We must also wait to see whether there are any other openings that could allow animals to get into the building and seal them off too.

Exclude wildlife using a trap or one-way door

The main entry point that wild animals use in order to enter and exit your property or business is often identified by top pest control companies. We purposefully do not seal this hole so that we can use it to properly exclude your nuisance wildlife. Once we have identified the problem, we can either place a live trap there or use a one-way door.

One way doors: For those who don’t wish to kill the animal, a one-way door can be a good choice. These are doors that allow animals to access but not leave. To use one of these, we carefully open a hole in the door that is just big enough for the animal to fit through but too small to turn around and come back out of. After that, we place some bait on the other side of the hole, close it and wait for them to enter. The door can’t be opened from this side so they won’t be able to turn around and go back once they reach the bait.

Live traps: If you want to use live traps, set traps next to any openings outside or on the roof that animals might use. We can lure the animals into our trap by placing them near these openings. We will place bait inside the trap and once an animal goes inside, it’s caught! A cage trap may be necessary if the wildlife being trapped is larger like a raccoon or an opossum. It’s a wire mesh trapping system that keeps the animal inside. Technicians from our wildlife removal company will then remove it from your house.

Popular Access Points for Animal Entry

To avoid future wildlife infestations, any professional wildlife pest management service must inspect every possible entry point that rodents or other wildlife may use to enter your home. AAAC Wildlife Removal does a thorough job, but here’s a quick overview of the most common access points animals use to enter your home.

Ridge Vents

Bats typically enter attics through the ridge vent, which is a metal strip that runs along the edge of the roof. Ridge Guard can be used as a sealant to stop bats from entering attics. After we have sealed the vents, we can repair your roof to make it animal-proof. If you have pictures of your roof, we will be able to give you a better idea of if your ridge vents are where the critters are getting in.

Gable Vents

Gable vents are found in many homes and allow wildlife such as squirrels and raccoons to enter. These vents provide airflow to your attic during hot weather. They may be covered or have a small flap which can be easily pried open with an animal’s paw. We can secure these vents with a wire mesh. This allows for airflow, but does not allow animals to enter. We can also replace any rotted wood or damage that may have allowed the critters to enter.

Dryer Vents

Dryer vents offer rodents and birds a convenient entrypoint. Rodents can often chew through dryer vents to get into your home, especially if they’re migrating between buildings in search of food or shelter. The airflow through dryer vents keep the birds alive so we need to seal off any vent openings and secure the areas with metal mesh.

Birds love dryer vents because of the warm airflow that is moving through them. As birds use dryer vents to access nesting spaces, you may see an increase in your electricity bills. Common vent guards are the best way to prevent this.

Soffit

Damaged soffits are a perfect entry point for rodents like squirrels and raccoons to climb into attics. Wildlife removal professionals should remove any decayed wood that allows wildlife access and seal the gaps with metal mesh or closures. Your soffit is guaranteed to look new and your rodent family gone.

damage to home fascia in Tulsa

Fascia

Wild animals love to visit the fascia of a house. The fascia is what would be underneath the gutter at the edge of your roof if you had gutters. It is a board that covers the gap between your roof edge and your gutters. To stop wildlife from using the access point, we seal all gaps with metal mesh, replace any rotten wood, then cover it with a metal covering that allows water to flow freely but prevents animals from entering.

Eaves

Raccoons love getting into your home through the roof eaves. Eaves are where your roof meets the side of your house. Our technicians can either place metal mesh in these areas to exclude wildlife, or we can install special Eaves Guards that will stop animals from getting back in.

The Chimney

One of the easiest ways animals can enter a house is through its chimney. If bats are already inside the chimney, we can remove and replace the chimney liners to get rid of the animals and prevent them from getting back in.

The chimney is a cozy place for bats, squirrels, and other animals. Due to venting and fire hazards, this is often a difficult access point to inspect. We often use flameless heat-detection cameras to find animals in hiding. Or we can simply remove the old liner and cover then replace them once the critter is removed.

Cracked foundation in Tulsa

Cracks in the foundation

Foundation cracks can be a favourite entry point for rodents. We can fill foundation cracks with cement filler compounds to keep rodents out of your home. This repair is animal-proof and will make your home look great from the outside.

Exposed pipe in Tulsa

Exposed pipes

Exposed pipes are the perfect way for rodents of all kinds to enter your house. It is best to cover any gaps with steel mesh to keep rodents out, then cover the pipe openings with a cap. This prevents animals and allows for air to flow freely throughout your home.
