Homeowners are often intimidated by the concept of wildlife control. If you have had recent animal infestations in your home or suspect that you are susceptible to animal infestation then an animal home entry inspection is recommended. To prevent serious health issues or home damage for homeowners it is imperative that the animal entry sites are located and secured. Because Critter Control of Waco knows that the best animal home entries are the ones that never occur, we offer free home inspections to arm your home against unwanted critters.
How do they get in?
Animals don’t actively seek the high traffic areas in your home. They are attracted to the dark, warm spaces that they can use as potential nesting sites. Unless a homeowner has positively identified the animal that has infested their home and is completely knowledgeable of how to remove the animal and secure the entry site, they should seek the help of a professional. Critter Control of Waco is very familiar with Waco’s local wildlife and is familiar with their entry sites of choice. The most common entry sites for wildlife in a homes are:
- Plumbing stacks
- Uncovered chimneys
- Loose roof tiles or holes in roofs
- Open areas under a porch or deck
- Damaged soffits or vents in the roof
- Holes or cracks in the walls or the foundation
- Loose vents or damaged masonry in the walls
- Intersection of soffits or dormers with the roof
Once entry sites are detected, the experts at critter control will seal the openings with material that won’t be damaged or eaten by other potential wildlife imposers. It is critical that this step be done professionally. If not done correctly, the efforts to protect your home were in vain.
