What is Pest Exclusion?
Pest exclusion is essentially sealing openings in your home to prevent rodents and other pests from going where they don’t belong. Rodent exclusion services involve inspecting your Austin home or commercial property for any potential crevices, holes, or decaying areas in and around the structure. We then use industry-leading sealing products designed to fill the areas that can invite unwanted wildlife inside your property. The goal of rodent exclusion and removal is to ensure all drains, vents, garbage disposals, doors, windows, and chimneys are rodent-proof with sealant or a mesh covering to effectively prevent rats, mice, raccoons, opossums, and other rodents from entering through these areas.
Advantages of Pest Exclusion
Cost-effective – Rodent exclusion is a more permanent rodent removal solution, and is a great method of rodent prevention, making it more cost effective for clients with frequent pest control problems. Also, there are fewer chemicals used in pest exclusion work than other pest management methods, and little to no expensive equipment or technology is necessary, making it a cheaper option than some alternative pest management solutions.
Humane, Safe, and Eco-Friendly—Rodent exclusion work requires no toxic chemicals, making it safe for your family and pets, as well as beneficial for the environment.
