Identifying Squirrel Droppings In Insulation
Squirrel Droppings And Urine In Insulation
Make sure to check the ceiling in each room for wet spots. These wet spots could be urine that has soaked through. If this happens, you may need a full attic restoration. Attic restoration is when the insulation is completely removed and replaced. The cost of an attic restoration will depend on the severity of the situation.
Proper safety equipment must be used when cleaning up squirrel droppings in your insulation and attic flooring. If cleaning up fecal matter, be sure you have an N95 grade mask. This will ensure you do not breathe in any airborne spores.
Equipment Needed For Cleaning Up Squirrel Droppings
Gloves protect your hands from bacteria in the droppings. A Tyvec hazmat suit is also important. If airborne particles get on your body or clothes, they can be transferred into other areas of your home. Having the right equipment to clean up the fecal matter is just as important as having the correct cleaning supplies to sanitize the area.
Some bacteria will not die with regular cleaning agents. You need to make sure you are selecting the right chemicals to kill certain diseases and bacteria. You can never be too careful when it comes to handling fecal droppings from squirrels and other wildlife species.
Squirrels Can Lead To Bigger Problems
Be aware that the odor of squirrel droppings and urine can be an attraction for other predators and wildlife. It is very common for a raccoon to breach your attic looking for squirrels and rats.
A predator that picks up the scent of another animal will follow it into your home. The amount of damage a squirrel does can pale in comparison to what a raccoon can do.
Apex Wildlife Control offers a fecal and deodorization service. This service is performed once the squirrels have been removed and your home sealed. You do not want to have this service performed prior to the squirrel removal.
Interior And Exterior Inspections
Our technicians will come out and do an interior and exterior inspection. The interior inspection will begin in your attic. When performing this inspection, we are looking for a variety of different things. To start, we look for feces, chewed wires, damaged HVAC and trails in the insulation. These are all areas that help us make a species determination.
Next, we perform an exterior inspection. This inspection begins at the foundation of your home and goes to the rooftop. During this inspection, we will take pictures of all our findings.
These pictures will be sent to you via picture message or email if desired. We will provide a detailed quote to trap the squirrels and seal your home. If you choose not to have us trap or seal your home, you will only be responsible for the inspection fee. Our inspection process will typically take an hour to an hour-and-a-half to perform.
Sealing Your Home From Squirrel Entry
This service is called exclusion. Once we perform a full exclusion, we will then schedule a fecal cleaning and deodorization if this service is booked. We can typically perform this service in one day. At this time, we do not offer an attic restoration service. Attic restoration is a service that completely removes and replaces all of the insulation in the attic.

Apex Wildlife Control gives a one-year warranty with our full exclusion services. We trust our work so much we guarantee you won’t have another squirrel issue for one year. If a squirrel breaches our work within that year, we will trap and reseal the area at no cost.
We also offer a DOUBLE MONEY-BACK guarantee. If you are unhappy with the quality of work, we will come back and redo that area at no cost.
