  • Plumbing Vents—Smaller animals like rodents (and sometimes snakes) have been found in plumbing vents as they search for food.
  • Roof & Fascia Spaces—The fascia, or the board connecting your roof and soffit, can decay and invite animal entry.
    • Roof Vents—Lightweight vents are able to easily be ripped/chewed by squirrels should be replaced with heavy secure roof vents, ideally stainless or galvanized.
    • Roof/Soffit—Another area of your roof animals can get into is the soffit. Repairing soffit gaps will help prevent wildlife entry.
  • Oven & Bathroom Exhaust Vents—Curious creatures like squirrels have been known to crawl in through oven and bathroom exhaust vents. Adding heavy-duty screening to vents will help keep them out.

  • Porch & Deck—Critters like opossums, skunks, and squirrels find ideal nesting spots and also food under your porch and deck. Durable screening around the base prevents nesting animals.
