Repairs & Prevention

Wildlife Damage Repairs

Critter Control of Seattle offers professional repairs to damages done to your home by wildlife animals. Raccoons are strong animals that can tear through almost any building materials, and moles are persistent pests that are able to tear up an entire yard in a short amount of time. 206.317.5048

 

Eaves

Eaves are a common place for birds to roost, or for animals to take shelter and eventually make their way inside your home. If these areas are not blocked off, it can mean trouble if a critter takes up residence. Our inspectors will take the time to analyze your home or building to ensure areas like this do not become problematic.  206.317.5048

Acids contained in bird droppings will erode the paint off of buildings, creating even more damage. Many birds are also capable of destroying entire fields of crops or vegetation. 206.317.5048

Foundation Vents

Sealed foundation vent to prevent access from critters.Foundation vents are a common point of entry. A foundation vent that has been compromised can lead to opossums, rats, mice, raccoons, and more, nesting in your crawlspace. This can cause damaged and soiled insulation, as well as damaged pipes or wiring. Some of these animals are known for chewing relentlessly. 206.317.5048

 

 

 

Caulking/Foaming

Entry point sealed with caulking.Caulking prevents smaller critters from getting through the gaps. Mice can not only climb, but also fit through very small holes. Bats are known to fit through 1/8th of an inch gaps, this means that although a slight gap that looks like nothing, can potentially be an access point. 206.317.5048

 

 

 

 

 

Fascia Gap

Entry points blocked, and fascia has been reinforced with L-flashing. When critters gain access to your attic or crawlspace through your fascia, it can not only cause you hundreds of dollars worth of damage to your fascia, but it can also destroy your gutter system. Squirrels, rats, mice, bats, and even an occasional raccoon may find it's way into your home to nest through these areas. 206.317.5048

 

 

Roof Vent Guard

Roof vent guards need reinforcement to keep birds and other pesky critters from gaining access into your home. Birds such as starlings, are known to nest inside these vents, lay eggs, and make a mess. Birds are not the only critter that can get inside these vents. Squirrels, rats, mice, and numerous other critters can find their way into your home without the proper preventative measures. 206.317.5048

 

 

 

 

 

Foundation Gaps

Foundation gaps are one of the most common spots for little critters such as mice and rats to gain access into your home. With keen eyes, our inspectors will find each gap that can pose a potential problem, or that is being used as an entry/access point. 206.317.5048

 

Prevention

Animal infestations are easier to prevent than to treat. Critter Control of Seattle is a team of wildlife management experts trained to exclude and prevent wildlife threats. After a thorough inspection of your home and property, you will be provided a prevention action proposal. We will help you to identify problem areas in the structure of your home and point out anything in or around your home that may be attracting common nuisance critters.

Habitat Modification

Habitat modification and multiple exclusion techniques prevent wild animals from returning. Habitat modification may be limiting access to food, water, or shelter. Excluding a critter may be creating a barrier to allow exit but to prevent entry. We also install vent screens, chimney caps, gutter guards, and more. Keep the animals out for good, give us a call and ask us about our wild animal-proofing services.

Animal Exclusion Points:

  • Chimney – Adding chimney caps and screening can prevent animals from falling in or nesting
  • Plumbing Vents – Animals seeking shelter can become stuck in plumbing pipes
  • Roof & Fascia Spaces – Poorly sealed points between roof & fascia invite animal entry
  • Roof Vents – Brittle vents should be replaced with heavy secure roof vents or covered with roof vent guards
  • Oven & Bathroom Exhaust Vents – Adding screening to vents helps keep animals out
  • Roof/Soffit Intersection – Securing gaps will help prevent animal chewing and entry
  • Holes in Siding – Repairing & reinforcing holes will discourage animal infestation
  • Porch & Deck – Durable screening around base prevents nesting animals
  • Trees & Landscaping – Removal of overhanging tree limbs and encroaching vegetation

Excluding wild animals from your property and homestead will also exclude potential health risks. To protect yourself and your family, call the trained professionals at Critter Control of Seattle to inspect all wildlife issues. 206.317.5048
