Wildlife Control Tips: How to Animal-Proof Your Attic
Keeping animals out of your attic isn’t always easy, but a few preventative measures can really help deter it from happening. Today in the Animal Remover blog we’ll talk about some wildlife control tips for keeping those nuisance animals at bay.
Get a Chimney Cap
If you have a chimney, it’s one of the easiest access points for animals like raccoons, squirrels, bats, and more. This can be easily remedied by installing a chimney cap to prevent them from getting in. Animal Remover offers chimney cap installation services, so if this is an issue for you, give us a call. We’ll make sure the installation is done right.

Trim Trees Around Your Home
If you have trees that have branches extending to the roof area, it might be a good idea to get these trimmed and maintained. A tree branch makes it easy for squirrels to climb right onto your roof. From there, it’s a lot easier for them to find a way in. Speaking of roofs, that brings us to our next point.
Thoroughly Inspect Your Roof for Faults
If there are holes in your roof and shingles, a squirrel will most likely be able to make their way into the house. You’ll also want to see if there are any open vents on your roof – if there are, install some vent covers. You want to make sure you’re not giving the animals any opportunity to get into your attic.
Install Squirrel Nests and Bird Houses
Not all wildlife control methods are 100% effective, but if you give birds and squirrels somewhere to stay that’s closer and easier to access than your roof, you may be able to deter them from seeking further shelter. Wildlife control methods such as strobe lighting and noise machines don’t typically work very well, and they can irritate neighbors. Giving the animals an alternative is much easier and much more effective.
