FAQs about Apex Wildlife Control
Is APEX a government agency?
No. We are a privately owned company. Our company is licensed and approved by the State Wildlife Agency to control nuisance wildlife. APEX also has state and local business licenses.
Is APEX A Pest Control Company?
Not technically speaking. We are a wildlife control company, and we love to educate the public with information about wildlife. Although nuisance wildlife may be defined as a “pest”, we do not deal with termites or typical insect problems. However, we do offer service for the removal of rat removal, mice removal, and vole removal which are all considered pests. We also offer free information about wildlife in Memphis, TN.
In addition we remove honey bees, which includes cutting into walls for honeycomb removal to prevent rot. Our primary concern is the removal of wildlife from homes, businesses, and other locations, and in the resolution of conflicts.
Our company also offers an outside rat maintenance package. This service allows us to reduce the rat population around your property by setting rat removal stations around the outside of your home. These stations are completely pet friendly and blend in with the terrain. We will come out monthly to remove any captured rodents and re-bait the traps.
Does Apex Wildlife Control Offer Services For Domesticated Animals Such As Dogs And Cats?
We are not the dog pound or the Humane Society. We do not deal with conflicts involving a neighbor’s dog running loose in your yard, or lost pets. However, we do regret any lost pet, and will gladly direct you to the agency that handles these types of problems. There may be times when a home or business needs feral cats or dogs removed. If asked, APEX will capture these animals, but there will be a charge for the service.
What is the cost for wildlife removal and repairs?
All jobs are different. Prices may vary depending upon the length of service, the degree of difficulty, the size of the job, and the element of danger involved. For example, the cost of a one time animal removal, would be much less than a trapping job lasting several weeks. Repairs and exclusion work for a large job would obviously be much more than repairing a small job. Costs can range from a minimal fee, to several hundred dollars, depending upon the factors already described. An inspection is required to give an accurate estimate.

What animals does APEX remove, or offer services for?
Whatever gets in, or is creating a nuisance–in short, most species of wildlife. However, some endangered species cannot be captured, or may require a special permit. Since we specialize in solving your problem, if a species cannot be captured, we will do whatever the job requires to deter the animal. Or we will get approval to remove it, or deal with the regulatory agencies like State Wildlife Division to get an exemption. Laws are written to protect wildlife and people, however when it comes to your home or property, we believe people’s needs take top priority. Here is a list of the more common animals we deal with on a day to day basis in the Memphis area:
- Armadillo Removal
- Bat Removal
- Beaver Removal
- Bird Removal
- Coyote Removal
- Groundhog Removal
- Honeybee Removal
- Mole Removal
- Opossum Removal
- Raccoon Removal
- Rat Removal
- Skunk Removal
- Snake Removal
- Squirrel Removal
- Vole Removal
Does APEX guarantee animal removal from homes, and guarantee repair jobs?
Yes and No.
Yes, if providing an exclusion/sealing service:
If you hire Apex Wildlife Control, we guarantee wildlife removal from the inside of any structure that we completely seal. As a result, we will give you a written warranty on the structure because we do the job right the first time. However, if re-entry occurs, we will not only remove the species, we will do the necessary repairs at no cost to you.
No, if we are performing an outside only trapping service.
We cannot make an animal go into a trap. Although we are usually quite successful, nowadays, so many people have trapped wildlife with traps purchased from tractor supply or home depot, that animals can become trap shy. In these cases, we can disguise our traps and make them blend in with natural surroundings, but can’t guarantee a removal.
