Are Squirrels In Your Air Ducts In Memphis TN?

Have you seen damage from squirrels in your air ducts in Memphis TN? We specialize in removing squirrels in your air ducts. During the warm summer months, squirrels will mostly stay outside in the fresh air and nest in trees. Attics are too hot, so squirrels like to stay in the open breeze.  But when the temperatures begin to drop, squirrels will start looking for warm places to nest.

Having squirrels in your air ducts can be a problem for many reasons. First, the nesting material they use is very flammable. This can potentially lead to a fire in your home. A squirrel’s teeth constantly grow, so they will chew on different things to regulate the size of their teeth. This includes your electrical wires. If this chewing happens to create a spark, then a house fire is very possible.

Second, you will also begin to notice a foul odor in your home from the squirrels’ fecal droppings. Your ventilation system will send the odor of urine and feces throughout your entire home. If you suddenly notice that your family is not feeling well or has any odd symptoms, go to a doctor. Let the doctor know there is the potential of a respiratory infection from wildlife.

When we receive a call indicating a squirrel may be stuck, time is of the essence. Once an animal is stuck, it can dehydrate quickly from over exertion. It's much easier to find a squirrel making noise than trying to find it by smell once it has died somewhere in your home.

A live squirrel will be scratching and clawing frantically looking for a way to get out. This can happen if they accidentally fall into a wall crevice. It can also happen if a juvenile squirrel has become lost from its nest. Our technician will use a drill and boroscope to try to locate the squirrel. If he can see and get to it, he will cut a hole large enough to capture the squirrel. He can either use a catch-pole or a net depending on the circumstance. The customer is responsible for repairing the wall once the squirrel is removed. Apex Wildlife Control does not do carpentry work such as patching up walls after animal removal.

Apex Wildlife Control offers a dead animal removal and deodorization service. If a squirrel has perished in your duct-work, you will start to smell a strong odor that may last weeks. With a dead squirrel in the duct-work, the odor is not be centralized and will spread throughout your home. If this happens, it can be very difficult to find where the squirrel is located.  This is why we always urge people to call Apex Wildlife Control as soon as they think a squirrel may be stuck in the wall or duct-work.

Apex Wildlife Control performs interior and exterior squirrel inspections. Our technicians go into your attic and look for fecal droppings to verify the species. Then they check for chewed wires, damage to your duct-work or HVAC, as well as other signs of wildlife. Following the interior inspection, we perform a full exterior inspection. This inspections consists of locating all potential points of entry. This inspection begins at the foundation of your home and extends to your rooftop.  The technician will document his interior and exterior inspections with photos of his findings.  These photos will be emailed to you at the end of the inspection.

Once the inspection is complete, the technician will provide you with an estimate detailing not only trapping but also the sealing of your home against wildlife, also known as exclusion.  This estimate will include the necessary sealing and trapping options, and the photos will show actual and potential points of entry.

If a squirrel enters your home or business to build a nest, they can bring harmful parasites with them. These include ticks, which can transmit Lyme disease, as well as fleas.  Accumulated squirrel feces and urine can also contain salmonellosis. Accidental exposure may cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and chills.

When a customer has our company perform full exclusion and trapping, we Guarantee against Wildlife Re-Entry for a full year. Our Fort Knox Guarantee covers not only the areas that we sealed but your entire home. This means that if an animal chews or damages an area of your home in an area that wasn't sealed in the first year following exclusion we will trap and seal that area for no cost up to $1000.

Our company does not fix rotted wood or do any major carpentry work. If there is a lot that needs to be done, we ask that you have a carpenter come out to assess your home and repair those areas first.  The little fellow to your right seems perfectly happy with the easy access this rotted wood provides him!  Obviously we could not seal this area up without this rotted wood being replaces first. Our main focus with exclusion work is sealing up the small gaps, securing vents and patching up the smaller holes. If there is rotted wood around your home, it needs to be repaired before we perform exclusion. We can’t secure any of our work to something that could fall apart or is easily chewed through.

At Apex Wildlife Control, we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality work. We want satisfied customers who know our work is going to hold up and last!

So if you have some fuzzy-tailed little friends hiding in your air ducts, give us a call today.  We're here to help!
