What is Pest Control Exclusion?

If you have ever had an issue with rodents, birds, or bats getting inside your home, you may have been told that you need exclusion pest control. So, what exactly is an exclusion in regards to pest control?

An exclusion is the process of locating entry points for many different size pests and then sealing, or excluding, the property to prevent re-entry.

What Kind of Pests Are Exclusions Typically Used For?

Exclusions are used for anything from raccoons, skunks, birds, bats, rodents, and even snakes.

It may sound simple, but it usually takes an experienced technician several hours to properly seal the average property. Of course, every property is different and the number of entry points, and the time it will take to properly exclude, will differ for each.

Is Pest Control Exclusion Necessary?

Is exclusion necessary? The short answer is YES!

If you have a breach where critters are traveling in and out of your home at will, you have a long-term problem. We have seen many situations where people have opted for the simple fix of trapping or baits only. This is a temporary fix. You may eliminate the current uninvited occupant(s), but each season the problem can re-occur. Your home has been identified as a warm and safe place by these pests, and new generations will continue to attempt to dwell there.

There are multiple types of exclusions depending on the pest that you are trying to prevent entering your home. Each type of pest (rats, mice, squirrels, opossums, raccoons, birds, bats) requires different size entry points and prefers different entry locations on the home.

Most people are unaware that rodents can climb straight up the brick on the side of their home, so excluding entry points that are low to the ground may be only half of the required exclusion.

An exclusion is usually completed with a variety of materials from expanding foam to copper mesh. Our expert exclusion technicians are excellent at making sure the work will look clean and professional. In most situations, unless you know what you are looking for, the evidence of the exclusion cannot be seen.

Before you can exclude your home, let your pest control exclusion technician go through the process of removing the uninvited guest. You don’t want to trap a raccoon in your attic! Rodents can do a lot of damage to your home if they become desperate to escape.

Each species is going to require a different amount of time and techniques to remove them. Trust our pest control exclusion technicians and trust our process.

Once the home has been excluded, we will provide an annual warranty for the work our exclusion technician has provided. Each year we will come inspect and repair any areas that may be potential breaches in your exclusion.
