Prevention Methods

Critter Control of San Antonio uses species-specific methods to prevent wildlife invasions. Your technician will create a prevention plan to ensure safe and effective prevention results.

We may use any of the variety of prevention methods on your one control problem. Habitat modification, vent screening, chimney caps, roof venting and soffit guards are just a few of the many techniques your technician can use.

Habitat modification works to keep your home and property looking unattractive to the problem wildlife animals. Limiting nesting areas, food supply, and water supply will help keep wildlife from coming near your home.

Exclusion techniques are important to keep a barrier in between your home and the critters outside. Squirrels are persistent animals that will try what they need to get back to their original nesting area. Barriers like vent screens can keep the squirrels out for good!


Upon arrival, your technician will inspect your home top to bottom, inside and out. Critter Control of San Antonio will check for animal points of entry that others may not think to check. Below is a list of animal exclusion points that Critter Control of San Antonio may implement prevention materials.

  • Chimney – Adding chimney caps and screening can prevent animals from falling in or nesting
  • Plumbing Vents – Animals seeking shelter can become stuck in plumbing pipes
  • Roof & Fascia Spaces – Poorly sealed points between roof & fascia invite animal entry
  • Roof Vents – Lightweight, flimsy vents should be replaced with heavy secure roof vents
  • Oven & Bathroom Exhaust Vents – Adding screening to vents helps keep animals out
  • Roof/Soffit Intersection – Securing gaps will help prevent animal chewing and entry
  • Holes in Siding – Repairing & reinforcing holes will discourage animal infestation
