Wildlife Exclusion

What animal(s) are we dealing with?

The first step to a successful wildlife exclusion is to determine what animal it is that is causing the problem.  Tufts Wildlife Services has years of experience with this process.  We employ tactics such as identifying footprints, feces, and the nature of the damage caused by the animal.  Once we have determined what animal is causing you trouble we will design a custom trapping and removal plan.

Trapping and Exclusion

This is the part where we actually get rid of the animal that's making noise in your attic or getting into your trash at night.  We employ interior trapping methods in the case of rats.  In cases involving larger animals such as squirrels, raccoons, opossums, armadillos, iguanas, ducks, and snakes Tufts Wildlife Service Professionals will set and monitor live traps on the exterior of the structure.  With Bats, Tufts Wildlife Services will employ a passive removal tactic using a one-way valve to ensure that no bats are killed or harmed during the removal process.  

During the removal process we will seal and repair any entry points that may allow nuisance animals to reenter your home.  The timing of the exclusion work will vary with what type of animals we are removing.  Tufts Wildlife Services uses only high quality materials and methods to help solve your nuisance animal problem for good.  We offer a one year renewable warranty on exclusion work and stand by our ability to keep nuisance animals out.

Sanitation Process

Once this exclusion process is complete, Tufts Wildlife Services will perform an attic sanitation.  During this service we will remove any and all accessible feces and contaminants using a commercial grade vacuum equipped with a HEPA filtration system to avoid the spread of spores, bacteria, roundworm eggs, and other pathogens.  Tufts Wildlife Services will then use a commercial atomizer to disperse hospital grade sanitizer throughout your attic to kill any remaining bacteria.  This chemical is safe and effective when it comes to removing potential health threats as well as any scent trails or odors left behind by nuisance animals.  This sanitation process imperative to ensure that your home doesn't have any residual odors and pheromone trails that may attract future nuisance animals.
