Why Prevention?

When you solve a wildlife control problem, the last thing you want to do is encounter another one! Critter Control of Columbus understands this. Your technician will create a prevention plan according to the problem wildlife at hand. The species-specific method will ensure effective results and keep your home safe from wildlife invasions.

Points Of Entry

Wildlife animals can have high intelligence levels and be small enough to fit through very tiny areas. Most people would over look a lot of the points of entries our technicians find. Below is a list of prevention locations our technicians most commonly see problems with.

  • 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
