The immediate situation of wild animal removal is simply the first step of wildlife control on your property. You ultimately want to prevent animals from entering your home and buildings in the first place. The most effective, economical, and humane solution for on-going protection is exclusion.
What is Exclusion?
Exclusion is removal of the animal followed by the sealing of entry points to keep wildlife from returning and re-entering the structures. This process involves extensively checking your home or building for possible entry points (holes, cracks, vents, construction/builder gaps) and then sealing those areas to prevent animal entry, without trapping any animals inside.
Methods and Techniques
After identifying the offending animal(s), a Wild Trappers professional will develop a plan of defense to effectively prevent wildlife from entering your home or property. Techniques may include establishing barriers, sealing entry points, and/or placing screens over vents and chimneys.
Common Entry Points

- Oven and Bathroom Exhaust Vents: Unsecured vents make ideal nesting sites for squirrels and birds, resulting in odors, insects, and noticeable sounds. Adding screening to the vents can keep animals out.

- Roof and Fascia/Soffit Intersections: Poorly sealed points between your roof and fascia/soffit can easily be manipulated by an animal wanting to gain entry to your the attic space.
- Plumbing Vent Pipes:Animals seeking shelter can become stuck in plumbing pipes and obstruct your plumbing system.
- Trees and Landscaping: Overhanging tree limbs and landscaping can assist wildlife with accessing otherwise unreachable areas of your home.
- Holes in Siding: Holes should be repaired and reinforced.
