Animal Proofing and Preventative Maintenance Services

Invasive wildlife can leave behind devastating damage to your home, office, or yard. Once your wildlife control issues have been addressed and the animals have been removed from your property successfully, it’s time to turn your attention to animal proofing and remediation so you don’t experience a recurrence of your problem.

Animals like raccoons can wreak havoc both inside and outside of your home. They create gaping holes in your roof by tearing through shingles and vents, they destroy attic insulation, and they rip up your lawn digging for grubs and other insects. Rodents like mice are able to fit through gaps as small as a quarter of an inch, and once inside, they will chew on electrical wires, tunnel through insulation, and leave urine and feces everywhere they travel. Even something as small as a carpenter ant can compromise the structural soundness of a building.

To prevent your property from suffering even more harm, it is essential that you remediate and sanitize areas where animals have been living and safeguard your home against future wildlife breaches with animal proofing. ABC Humane Wildlife Control and Prevention has all of the experience and capability to provide you with the best in decontamination and preventative maintenance services so your home can return to its safe, secure state.

Animal Removal and Pest Control

At ABC Wildlife, we understand that each client situation is different and needs to be addressed on a case by case basis. Using our time-tested animal control and pest management methods, we are able to ensure successful wildlife removal in an endless number of circumstances. Once the species of animal or insect has been identified and their nest has been located, we develop a tailor-made plan of action to remove them from your property. We know the ins and outs of animal behavior and will do whatever it takes to make your home a nuisance wildlife and pest-free zone in the safest manner possible.

Animal Proofing Services

After ABC Wildlife’s animal and pest control services have been completed, we assess your property to determine the nature of the damage the animal has caused and what needs to be done to remediate your home and protect it from similar problems in the future. We’re able to offer an extensive number of animal proofing and remediation services from insulation replacement to gap seals. Closing up cracks and holes in your home can help prevent insects, mice, and even bats from entering your house. Our vent caps are designed specifically to stop raccoons and squirrels from making your attic their den.

ABC Wildlife’s specially formulated odor-enzyme and ecto-parasite treatment eradicates fleas, ticks, and mites left behind by wildlife and works to eliminate unpleasant animal scents. We can even help to keep birds like pigeons and sparrows from nesting and perching on your home or building. Whatever animal or pest has made their way onto your property, ABC Wildlife has the expertise and experience to remove them and keep them from coming back.

What They Say About ABC Humane Wildlife

I arranged for them to install wire screening on 2 sides of a concrete stoop to prevent animals from digging under my porch. (I have used this company in the past to remove animals from other parts of my property. They suggested this proactive work.) They called to remind me several days before their appointment. They came as promised. They did a great job of preserving landscaping gravel on the side before they dug. After digging down approximately 18 inches, they installed wire mesh screening down the 2 sides of the stoop. They then covered the area with the dirt and final layer of landscaping stones. You couldn’t even tell the area had been excavated when they were done!

We had bees crawling under exterior siding through a gap between siding and brick wall and wanted them eliminated. Phil the technician from ABC arrived at the scheduled time. He observed the bees and identified them as yellow jackets. Phil said he could eradicate them with a powder treatment and the bee activity would die down in a couple of days and we would be finished with the problem. Phil said if we still noticed bee activity after 7 days to call ABC and they would come back to re-treat the nest at no charge. It is just 3 days since Phil treated the nest and we have observed zero bee activity. We are very happy with the service and the remedy to our problem.

One by one, they removed a family of nine flying squirrels from our attic. The attic was completely cleaned and sanitized, and new insulation as blown in. All went well. It was easy to make appointments with ABC Humane Wildlife Control, and they were all very profession and prompt with their service. We dealt with many on their staff while trying to catch all the squirrels, and each of the representatives were friendly and helpful. We had some issues with the condition of some of the traps, but that was eventually resolved. They are a very helpful organization and the staff is very knowledgeable.
