Prevention Services

Removal & Exclusion

Removing wildlife from your home or property is only the beginning, at Critter Control of Kansas City, we want to make sure that wildlife will not return. Excluding wildlife from an area of your home or property by locating all points of animal entry and implementing repair and exclusion techniques, is the best approach to long-term wildlife control.

Prevention Methods

One of the most effective methods of prevention used by our Kansas City office, is habitat modification. Identifying and limiting access to food, water and shelter for the specific species. Exclusion techniques may include sealing entry points, placing screens over vents or establishing other barriers to intrusion from wildlife.

Every animal is different, and our technicians know and understand those differences and are able to approach each case with unique and specific techniques and methods. That is just another one of our advantages. Improperly implemented control techniques may cause more harm than good, so attempting to implement prevention methods without the help of a professional is not recommended.

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 – Lightweight, flimsy vents should be replaced with heavy secure roof vents
  • 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

While some wildlife appear small and harmless, it is important to remember there are many dangers associated with wildlife. From diseases and parasites to painful bites, a wildlife encounter can become a serious risk. To protect yourself and your family, call a trained professional at Critter Control of Kansas City to inspect all wildlife issues.
