Do you have a squirrel nest in your attic in Germantown TN? Have you been hearing noises in your ceiling, walls or attic lately? You may have some squirrels that have chewed their way into your home. Now you have a squirrel nest in your attic! It is very common for squirrels to seek shelter in a safe, warm and quiet place to build their nests.
Before the cold winter months arrive, squirrels may start to build a nest in your attic. During summer months, they can be heard coming inside at night and going back out in the morning due to the attic heat. Once squirrels find a safe place to build a nest, it is very difficult to get rid of them. This is where we come in. We can help you get rid of that squirrel nest in your attic!
Mating And Gestation
Squirrels will start to breed when they are about a year old and mate around mid-December or early January. Some squirrels also breed again around June, but this is not as common. A female squirrel will find a safe, warm and quiet place to have her litter.
Squirrels typically have a litter of three babies. The baby squirrels stay in the nest until they are 10 to 12 weeks old. Then the mother will teach them to get in and out of your house to forage for food. This is when it will typically be the noisiest since more squirrels are moving around and chewing through the wood. A squirrel’s teeth grow constantly just like our fingernails. Squirrels must chew constantly to keep their teeth filed down.
Chewing Everything They Can Find!
If squirrels do not constantly chew, their teeth grow too long. They are not be able to eat properly. This constant chewing is a huge concern because squirrels can easily access wiring in attics. Squirrels can also chew into air vents where they could potentially get stuck and die. They can also fall through a hole and not be able to find their way out.
Our company offers a dead animal and deodorization removal service if you think a squirrel has died in your walls. If you hear scratching or chewing in a certain area for a long period of time, a squirrel is very likely stuck. Once it is stuck, it can die within a day or two due to dehydration.
Dead Animal Removal And Deodorization
A noisy squirrel is much easier to find than a dead squirrel, so call us as soon as possible. Once we locate the origin of the odor, we drill small holes at the bottom of the wall. We use a boroscope to locate the dead squirrel. If we can find the squirrel, we remove it and use a commercial deodorizer to get rid of the smell.
There is no guarantee for this service. If you have rats or other wildlife in your home, they may move the dead squirrel to eat it. Also, the dead squirrel could be in a location that we are unable to access.
Interior And Exterior Inspections
Apex Wildlife Control offers an interior and exterior inspection for all residential and commercial properties. This service is where our technicians will go into your attic and look for the fecal droppings to verify the species. They check for chewed wiring, damage to your HVAC, duct-work, and other signs of wildlife. The technician will then inspect the outside of your home. He will inspect from your foundation to roof for all potential and actual entry points.
You will receive pictures of all of our findings. The technician will show you how the squirrels are getting into your home. Once the technician has completed the inspection, you will receive an estimate for exclusion and trapping. This estimate is valid for seven days. If you have any questions about this estimate, feel free to contact us.
