Upper Armor Shield

Custom Solutions for Any Pest Problem

Pest activity inside your home can represent an opportunity to find areas on the outside that can be permanently sealed, keeping those pests out for good. Many critters only need a small opening to invite themselves into your home. Pestex’s Upper Armor Shield is designed to be a permanent, chemical free, solution to pests and wildlife entering your home through gaps in ridge vents, soffits, and facia. The Upper Armor Shield primarily defends against Squirrels, Raccoons, Bats, and Birds.

Bat Evictions

Bats can enter your home through small openings in the roof, vents, chimneys, and other spaces making use of openings as small as a quarter of an inch.  Although bats play an important role in the ecosystem, they can pose health risks for you and your loved ones in your home.  If you have a bat infestation in your home or business, it is important to contact a professional bat removal company as soon as possible in order to get the situation inspected and properly taken care of.  

As a protected species, Massachusetts State Law requires a non-lethal approach to bat evictions in your home.  Through the use of one way doors during the early spring and late summer, bats can be safely removed from your residence.  With the installation of an Upper Armor Shield, our exclusion specialists will ensure that once the one way doors are removed, all entry points are permanently sealed, protecting you from future intrusions.  For more information on Bats in your Massachusetts home, please visit

Chimney Caps

Chimneys are a common entry point for pests into residential structures..  As a solution, Pestex offers chimney cap services to keep critters out of your chimney and out of your home. 

Chimney caps are specialty ordered for each home with animal exclusion in mind. They are measured to the exact size of your Chimney, as very few chimneys are alike!  After a thorough inspection for wildlife activity, measurements are taken for a custom-made stainless steel chimney cap.

Pestex Upper Armor Shield Warranty

The Pestex Armor Shield Warranty protects against reentry of the specific pests and rodents it is designed to exclude. Under this program, if at any time there is an issue with the material or installation, we will be out to inspect and solve the issue in our next available appointment. The warranty covers your Exclusion System in full for each year it is renewed.

They are always on time and do an awesome job thoroughly inspecting our house to make sure all areas are patched up and traps are up to date. We appreciate their presence in our home a lot more than rodents! Thank you for all you do!
