Many homeowners in Ft. Lauderdale don’t really worry about animal damage until they find wildlife in their attic or their chimney. Unfortunately, it doesn’t take a long time for these critters to start destroying your home. While some of them have a designated bathroom area, many of them will expel waste anywhere.
Additionally, many critters bring additional pests into your home, such as ticks and fleas. These can be even harder to get rid of. Therefore, preventing the damage in the first place should be your first priority. Let Critter Control help you with that!
Don’t Let Nuisance Animals Find Their Way In
Many critters can sneak into the tiniest spaces if they want to. That means you have to be extremely vigilant and knowledgeable in order to prevent them from doing so. Our animal control officers and wildlife management experts know exactly where to look for these entrances.
In order to prevent animals from coming in, we tend to utilize screens or other barriers on each potential entry point. Some areas can be sealed off entirely, while vents need screens in order to stay functional.
What You Can Do to Help
After Critter Control has blocked off every potential point of entry, it’s highly unlikely for critters to find their way into your home. However, some physical barriers may need to be replaced down the road. For example, screens can wear down and break over time. Therefore, you should check them every so often and repair or replace as necessary.
Another thing you can do to stop animals from getting too comfortable in your home is to prevent them from finding a food source. For example, leaving food out on your counter overnight is just asking for trouble. You may also want to sweep and vacuum the floors on a regular basis.
