Keeping Wildlife Out & Repairing Damage
When rodents or wildlife move in, getting them out is only part of the job. If steps aren’t taken to find and block their access points, reinfestation is almost guaranteed. Wildlife exclusion is necessary for effectively preventing new critters from entering your property again. The specific exclusion techniques that may be needed depend on the type of wildlife and their intelligence level.
Most Common Property Damage Caused by Wildlife
Wildlife can cause property damage, such as:
- Creating holes in the exterior of the house to get inside
- Roof damage
- Chewing holes through drywall, insulation, and electrical wiring
- Eating through food boxes and bags and destroying your food
- Unpleasant odors
- Lawn and landscape damage
A successful plan to keep wildlife away requires determining how they are getting in and why they are attracted to your property. This is almost always for food, water, and shelter, although some critters may be attracted to insects and other pests. It is important to take steps to make your property less welcoming to critters and block the entry points they are using to get inside the house.
How to Exclude Wildlife from Your Property
Effective exclusion techniques include:
- Sealing the foundation, roofline, and entry points for plumbing and utility lines
- installing screens for exhaust vents and roof vents
- Using chimney caps
- Repairing any holes created by rodents or wildlife
- Replacing loose weather stripping or mortar
In addition to blocking their access to your home, any damage caused by wildlife will need to be repaired and their nesting areas cleaned up and sanitized. The repair work that is needed may include patching any holes in the siding, patching or replacing damaged drywall and baseboards indoors, replacing insulation, and any other materials damaged or destroyed by rodents or nuisance wildlife.
Once the holes have been blocked and damage has been repaired, there are other steps you can take to make your property less attractive to the local wildlife. Keep trees and bushes trimmed back away from the house and roofline, remove debris piles, store firewood as far away from the house as possible, and keep your garbage in tightly sealed containers that can’t be opened by animals, even clever ones like raccoons.
