Animal Proofing

Here at Illiana Wildlife Removal Services, we make animal proofing easy, convenient, and affordable for our customers. You may be wondering what animal proofing really means. Basically, animal proofing your home means that you prevent any kinds of wildlife from gaining access to your property. “Prevention is better than cure”, which is why many home and business owners prefer animal proofing over other methods of animal control. Although animal trapping and other forms of critter removal methods are effective, animal proofing is a great way to prevent wildlife-related issues that may happen in the future.

How Animal Proofing is Done

One important thing that we always keep in mind when conducting animal proofing is to make sure that we see the world through the eyes of an animal. It may sound silly but once you start to think about it, it is actually a smart strategy. We will conduct a thorough inspection of your property and look for things that could potentially attract unwanted animals such as skunks, raccoons, rats, beavers, etc. We will analyze your property intensively, from looking for holes under your decks to cutting off tree branches hanging on top of your roofs (some animals, like raccoons, are smart enough to climb trees to gain access to your chimney). We often look for food sources like trash bins and vegetable gardens, these things can attract animals like magnets.

Sealing Cracks and Holes

Once we have found all the possible factors that can attract animals, we start removing things that we can remove. We will also check the entire building for any animals that may have gotten inside, if any animal is found, humane animal removal methods will be used. Once we are 100% sure that no animal is hiding inside the building, we will start sealing the cracks and crevices. Cracks as small as one fourth of an inch can still cause trouble because bats small bats and mice can squeeze through them. We can also cover larger holes.

Importance of Animal Proofing

Our company offers various animal control services, all of which are perfectly safe and humane, but we still believe that animal proofing is one of the best methods that we can offer. Once animals have entered your home without you noticing, you are exposing yourself, your family, and your pets to various health hazards. Trying to conduct animal proofing without using the right equipment and insufficient knowledge can just waste your time and may even cause more problems in the future. It would be best to contact professional wildlife removal experts to perform these kinds of procedures. For inquiries regarding animal proofing, contact Illiana Wildlife Removal Services now!
