Plumbing Mats and Pipes

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.

Plumbing Mats and Pipes

These days plumbing mats are made of neoprene rubber or hard plastic however on older homes they may be lead or aluminum. In every case they are vulnerable to wildlife because they can be chewed or lifted allowing access to the attic space. Plumbing vent pipes can on occasion become blocked by trapped wildlife and in some cases squirrels do chew through ABS pipes to get into attics. Both mats and pipes can be screened to effectively protect them from wildlife.
