Do you have squirrels in your attic in Memphis TN? If you have squirrels in the attic of your home, you are not alone! One of the main problems we get calls about here at Apex Wildlife Control is for squirrels in the attic. These unwanted visitors may be small, but they can make a big entrance and a lot of noise.
Some indications that you may have squirrels in your attic are chewed holes the size of baseballs or smaller. You may see squirrels running around on your roof. Inside your home, you may hear a scurrying sound, chewing or scratching noises above your ceiling. These sounds may take place in the attic or even in the walls. Once squirrels get into your attic, they will easily travel throughout your entire home.
Once we know the species we are dealing with, we can proceed further. Following a positive identification, we begin the trapping and exclusion process. The trapping process will vary depending on species. However, we normally complete the process in one to two weeks. It is now the time to see about fixing your home up and sealing it from squirrel re-entry. However, one item that can slow things down is if you have rotted wood on the home. Rotted wood can be a big problem and is sometimes very costly to fix. It is always good to know if rotted wood is abundant before we come out.
