Colorado Page – Prevention
You enjoy your home for its comfort, warmth, and coziness; unfortunately, these are all attributes that make it a likely place for wildlife to seek refuge. If your home has been invaded, whether its bees in the attic or a raccoon family in the basement, Wildlife X Team Colorado has the skills and tools to take care of it. But there are also many things you can do to protect your home and prevent animal invasions in the first place. Read below to find tips for wildlife entry prevention.
Find and Seal Entry Points
Any small hole is a potential entrance for a determined critter: HVAC vents, chimneys, and plumbing infrastructure are such entry points. It’s easier to keep animals out then to remove them once they are inside your home, so make sure that these entry points are properly sealed with the correct exclusion products. Our Wildlife Inspection Report® includes a thorough inspection of all such entry points in your home, as well as proper prevention solutions.
Small Repairs Prevent Large Problems
Doing a minor repair now is almost always a better bet than waiting until it becomes a larger problem down the road. Holes or gaps in your attic or gable vent, fascia board, roof, or cracks in windows and doorframes are all potential entry points for wildlife, as well as sources of heating and cooling loss. If you spot a small hole, don’t wait – repair it right away and save yourself the headache of a major problem later.
Respond to Animal Invasions Immediately
Even one unwelcome critter guest is too many – it’s best to respond to a wildlife invasion right away because one animal usually means more are on the way. If you spot wildlife in your home or on your property, don’t wait for the problem to get worse – call Wildlife X Team today to humanely relocate these animals, and reclaim your home!
