The most basic question that needs to be asked is, “How can I avoid nuisance wildlife invasions?”

The Most Common Nuisance Wildlife Invaders

Strictly speaking about the usual culprits and not birds, Squirrels, Raccoons or Mice are what you need to be concerned with. They seek shelter within your home or facility for a whole slew of unique reasons. Their never ending search for food is a significant factor. In addition, shelter from the elements, as well as nesting for offspring have also proven to be equally important.

Signs You Have Squirrels, Raccoons or Other Animals Living In Your Home or Commercial Property

nuisance wildlife damageWe’ve put together an entire laundry list of easily detectable signs so that you know exactly what you may be dealing with. Strong indicators which provide evidence that you have unwelcome visitors in your attic or underneath the rooftop include:

  • Hearing strange noises constantly
  • Droppings from Squirrels, Raccoons or Mice
  • Damaged entry points in the gap between your roof and fascia
  • Interior damage
  • Roofing material or shingle damage
  • Footprints from Squirrels or Raccoons
  • Terrible odors present
  • Water damage across your ceilings and(or) walls

The sad truth is that none of these nuisance animals have any care whatsoever for the wellbeing of your home. If they end up gaining entry, you’ll be dealing with plenty of unwanted behavior such as consistent scratching sounds, bad odors due to droppings, urine, or dead animals, and much more.

Fortunately, we have a full proof solution that involves sealing up any vulnerable areas of your residential or commercial property to ensure that access to animals is completely restricted. Our team of experts have years upon years of experience not only installing entry point exclusion systems for animals but also identifying any potential areas that may be future targets from unwanted wildlife.

We’ll Fortify You’re Property’s Most Vulnerable Access Points

entry point sealingWithin most homes and smaller commercial properties, the most common entry point for Squirrels or Raccoons is right next to your gutter. It’s actually the gap between your rooftop and front fascia. These animals will chew their way through roof tiles or any other material to get inside if there isn’t an entry point exclusion system installed.

At Standard, we are proud to specialize in installing a specially designed gutter protection product which will offer you security against leaf or debris buildup and of course, unwanted animal entry. Our entry point exclusion system is specifically engineered to cover the fascia gap. This means that animals such as Squirrels, Raccoons, or Opossums simply won’t be able to gain any form of entry whatsoever!

Our team of Nuisance Wildlife experts will custom design an animal protection/exclusion system for any type of rooftop or gutter system you have down to the exact specifications required. We’ll measure virtually every inch of gutter you have and custom install our fascia gap panel to be perfectly in sync all the while still providing the necessary ventilation you need for your attic. Our animal entry point exclusion systems are available in a few different colors and we’ll custom fit them to any size or type of property available. They are your best line of defense against nuisance wildlife.

Wildlife & Animal Entry Preventative Maintenance Services

wildlife exclusion servicesPrior, during or after a nuisance wildlife project, our technicians always spend time trying to educate our customers. In cases like this, it’s usually about preventative measures to take if they’re having recurring infestations or would just like to be a bit more knowledgable.

The very first element we provide service for and take into account with any of our customers are the existence of entry points. Besides your roofing system, these could consist of cracks or holes outside. We provide expert sealing and assessment solutions to close up any potential means of entry for animals. Outside of our customized roofing fascia protection system, we have also taken on projects and helped to repair weather stripping and even loose mortar.

Among other things, many of the reasons animals are drawn in can either be altered by a change in your daily routine or calls to other specialists for help. For example, if you’re property has a large array of trees with branches that are a little to close to comfort to the exterior walls or roofing, it would be a great idea to call an arborist to get those trimmed. Plenty of nuisance wildlife reside on those very branches and having them easily extend directly to your property just gives them a welcome opening to barge right in.

wildlife exclusion fasciaNuisance wildlife are always on the prowl for food and water. Because of this, we always recommend to our customers that they manage to keep their basements, attics or crawl spaces well ventilated and dry. Garbage is the easiest to maintain in a residential setting. Since animals of all kinds spend their days willing to eat just about anything, your garbage is a prime target. Make sure your garbage bags are properly sealed, and then disposed of within a tightly sealed garbage can. Once this is done, we recommend that you move those garbage cans to the very edge of your driveway, near the road to keep the animals as far away as possible. The very last bit of advice we could give you is regarding firewood during the winter. As the weather continues to drop, nuisance animals will seek shelter anywhere they can find heat. Naturally, you’ll have a stack of firewood ready to go for the winter outside your home if you have a working fireplace. We recommend storing it at least 20 feet away from your home and at the bare minimum, 5 inches off the ground.

If you are having trouble with nuisance animals such as Squirrels, Raccoons, Opossums, or Mice entering your home, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We provide fully professional, insured, and locked down protection against any of these critters. Our nuisance animal entry point exclusion systems are available all throughout New York City, Westchester County and Long Island, NY.
