After a thorough inspection of your home and property, you will be provided a prevention action proposal. We will help you to identify the problem areas in the structure of your home and point out anything in or around your home that may be attracting common nuisance critters.

Habitat Modification

Habitat modification is a tool we use to make sure wildlife animals do not return to your home or property. Habitat modification may be limiting access to food, water, or shelter. By doing this the critters will see no need to come back because they do not have access anymore.
