Wildlife Prevention Methods 

Habitat Modification

The habitat modification method involves limiting the access points of food, water, and shelter. Wild animals will keep coming back to your home if they have unlimited access to any of the three things on your property. By limiting the animal's access to these areas they will not need to come to your property anymore. Here at Critter Control of Greater Pittsburgh, our technicians have extensive experience in identifying small wildlife entrances that most untrained homeowners would not notice. 

Exclusion Techniques

The most effective prevention method involves installing exclusion materials. When expertly installed, the exclusion methods will create a literal barrier between your wildlife animal and the inside of your home. If you're dealing with a persistent animal, the exclusion method is the best route. This method can help you keep animals like opossums, raccoons, and squirrels out. The areas we use the exclusion method are:
