Animals, pests etc. can neither be eliminated nor can be disallowed to enter in one's house. The only
way to control their trespassing is to make barriers around, which could block their highway. Since they
get in to your house, garden, decks etc. through many sources like doors, windows, ventilators, holes etc.
so in order to block their way exclusion barriers are installed around to control their traffic. It is
considered one of the finest ways to control pests, nocturnal, snakes and other Salt Lake City animals that could enter
in your habitations through underground channels.
Opossums, raccoons, Utah skunks, groundhogs, foxes, woodchucks, chipmunks and wild cats often make their homes under decks or as they need a dark and safe place to live and grow their progeny. Even if they are removed they can make another way, so to control them exclusion barrier is the best option which is a trench of 12” to 18” dug around deck or home and filled with steel crush deep in it, while a ¼'' hardware cloth is used for viewing ventilator and is installed in size of 4'' to 6''. Dirt is spread over steel mash while bottom of it is bent in “L” shape with outward direction and then this whole system is packed. Now this underground steel crush will be unable to be dug by these Salt Lake City animals. This barrier helps to control entrance of all nearly above mentioned all animals and a thing must be kept in mind that no gaps remain open to ensure zero entrance.
Some animals like Salt Lake City snakes have the capability to dig under the barrier, so another option is there to control snake's entrance, which is to make barriers with soft and firm material like wire mash which is also less costly but small snakes can make their ways even through it. Another way is to conceal the exclusion barrier a few inches in to the ground; still if snakes make their way in, then go some more deep into the ground and twist the underside out. In this way Utah critters will be get enough blocked to get in your belongings. If lattice is used then digging is made up to 2 feet while the back of this trench is filled with soil and is compressed down to make sure that mesh is sheltered.
Top rim of mesh is kept under the whole structure to remain protected by using U shaped garden fasteners which is struck in to wood. A one way gate is also made in this whole arrangement as a safety measure so that the ensnared animals can be let out of premises and the offenders get blocked to get in easily. In this way most of the Salt Lake City animals are blocked to have a way in. Some sorts of these exclusion barriers are also used to control the bird's entrances into houses while some are also used to spot and catch sharks and other fish at beaches etc.
