Chimneys

Problems

We are fortunate to live where we can enjoy wildlife in our cities and our backyards. It is one of the benefits of living in a country rich in natural resources. However, urban wildlife is opportunistic and their instinct to find food and shelter sometimes causes conflict with people.

At Urban Wildlife Control Inc we understand that animals do not damage our homes out of ill intent or malice. They are simply trying to survive. Urban Wildlife Control Inc works to educate the public on the importance of prevention because we believe that wildlife deserves our respect and kindness. With good structural prevention we can keep human-wildlife conflict to a minimum.

Chimneys

To many species of wildlife, chimneys are a substitute for a hollow tree. Raccoons, squirrels and opossums often move right in and start families. Birds fly into chimneys and discover they can’t fly out. Ensuring that all chimneys are securely screened can prevent this kind of problem. Be aware that most commercially available chimney cap are not truly animal-proof.
