Attic/Soffit/Louvre Vent Screen Guards

Unfortunately, several areas of your Cape Cod area home will be encouraging to animals in their search for a cozy nest. This includes your roof. Common animals like raccoons, squirrels, rodents, and birds are all frequent visitors to your roofline and are very skilled climbers and/or fliers, which can present a challenge. The professionals at Critter Control of Cape Cod can assist in keeping wildlife off your roofline—and out of your home! Call us today!


Attic Fan Vent Guards

Attic fan vent guards do more than simply help keep your attic well-ventilated; they also act as wildlife control. If installed properly, an attic fan vent guard will discourage animals like squirrels from getting into your attic. Squirrels are strong chewers and can easily get through wood and vinyl materials on your home, but did you know squirrels are able to chew through softer metals like aluminum and copper? It's important to install a sturdy vent guard that will be squirrel-proof (and other wildlife-proof).

Roof Vent Guards

The most frequent species that are problematic in the Cape Cod area—such as birds, mice, and squirrels—will try to get into your home through damaged roof vents. If you do not protect the roof vents with heavy-duty steel guards, the clever and determined critters can easily get in, and in many cases, die—which leads to awful odors and the need for carcass removal. Keep animals (whether alive or dead) out of your vents by securing your roof vents with strong and long-lasting metal materials like stainless steel hardware cloth.

Gable Vent Closures

Another facet of your roof that can encourage unauthorized wildlife entry is your gable vents. This area of your roof helps ventilate your attic and maintain proper airflow. Gable vent closures are another important consideration in wildlife-proofing your Cape Cod home. Birds and bats are small and mobile enough to get into attics through gable vents, so properly maintaining and securing your gable vents is a good investment and a good way to save you a headache in the future.

Repairing Soffit Vents

Underneath your roofline (your soffit) is an easy way for curious creatures to get into your home, even more so if your soffit has been damaged from prior animal entry or perhaps natural degradation due to time and exposure to elements. Once again, a common soffit intruder is the squirrel. They're often responsible for soffit damage, which may include damage to your gutters and torn shingles. Make sure you keep animals out of your Cape Cod home by calling in the professionals at Critter Control of Cape Cod to repair your soffit vents and secure your roof against wildlife visitors.

Carcass/Dead Animal Removal from Cape Cod Residences

The odor alone of a dead wildlife critter inside your home is very unpleasant. Beyond simply odor lies the many secondary issues the dead animal can cause, including insects, stains, and serious illnesses—all of which can linger far longer than when the carcass itself is removed. Critter Control of Cape Cod will get rid of the dead animal and any additional issues that come with it. Call our office today or reach us online!


Where is the Dead Animal in my Home?

Oftentimes, a homeowner doesn't know they have a dead animal inside their home if it has not started to smell yet. In many instances, the animal carcass is inside a wall, attic corner, or crawl space. Many animals go to a different location than that of their nest in order to die, and in some cases, you may discover dead animals inside areas like chimneys that they got into accidentally and were unable to escape from.

How Do I Get Rid of Dead Animals?

The team at Critter Control of Cape Cod is trained professionally and has several years of success in removing dead animals. We are thorough in our dead animal removal and cleanup. Secondary insects like beetles, worms, flies, and more will eat these dead animals, and the dead animal is also hazardous for household pets who are curious and will want to investigate.

How Do I Get Rid of the Smell of Dead Animals?

Heavy-duty, professional odor removal methods and equipment may be necessary. DIY methods of getting rid of dead animal smell likely will not be strong enough, especially if the animal has been rotting in your home for a long period of time, or if there are several wildlife carcasses.

The simplest way to get rid of dead animals in your Cape Cod home is to make sure animals stay out of your home to begin with. We will help you get rid of dead animals in your home. Call Critter Control of Cape Cod today!

Deck Cleaning and Sealing

Can You Help Clean My Deck?

Yes! Decks are often subject to animal traffic, human traffic, exposure to the elements, and more. Critter Control of Cape Cod offers environmentally-friendly cleaning solutions. We use WashSafe products, which are quality eco-friendly hydrogen peroxide products.
