Do you have squirrels in your soffit? Have you been seeing squirrels running around on your roof lately? You may want to start checking the exterior of your house for chew marks. If you have already found holes around or in your soffits, they are most likely in your attic and it is past time to call in a professional to help.
Squirrels, like any other living thing, want to feel safe and protected. For this reason, among others, you will often find squirrels in your soffit or other areas. The integrity of the home is vital and should be protected and we're here to help. Apex Wildlife Control has assisted in protecting homes for 16 years.
Chances are, if there are squirrels in your soffit, there may be other areas around your home that have also been penetrated. There are many places that squirrels can gain access to with very little trouble. These areas include soffits, fascia boards, construction gaps, gable vents, dryer vents, and ground vents, among others. Don't wait until it's too late to have an inspection on your home as time is of the essence.
Squirrels can climb up and chew through just about anything because their claws and teeth are so sharp. Their front paws can grab onto objects well, while their claws dig in to give them traction to hold on. They can leap across trees and power lines to get to your home with ease.
A few prevention methods that can help, is to start with what is around your home, possibly attracting these squirrels. Any type of birdseed, nuts, berries, or food on the ground can attract them to your property. Take down bird feeders, even the hummingbird ones. Trimming bushes away from the house can also help sometimes. Trim down trees that the branches are hanging low to your roof or near your soffits. Repair any rotted wood around your home that the squirrels could easily chew through or tear apart.
Once squirrels have decided to make your home theirs, it is hard to keep them away. If the squirrels have already started to make a nest in your soffits then they likely also have access and are inside of your attic. In the attic, they can do a lot of damage that can also lead to very dangerous situations as well as costly for your home and family.
If the squirrels have chewed any wiring and it is exposed, it could create a fire or cause a shortage in the electrical systems. They can damage your ventilation system, insulation, and structural integrity. Because squirrels have sharp teeth and claws, they can do this in a very short amount of time and rack up expenses quickly.
The sooner you can identify the problem, trap the species, and seal the home, the sooner you can have your home structurally sound. Our call volume is unpredictable and for this reason, we ask that you reach out to a professional before more damage can be done. Typically you will hear the noises first, but if you see squirrels in your soffit or chew marks then it is better to go ahead and call for an inspection to get a better idea of what is going on with your home.
The Apex Inspection Process:
Our technician will start with the interior inspection first. The technician will look for fecal droppings to determine the species of the animals. He will also check for chewed wiring, damage to your HVAC, and damage to your duct work. He will document his findings with photos to email to you at the end of the inspection. The technician will then begin the exterior inspection of your home.
The technician will be looking for the possible and actual entry points from the bottom of your home's foundation to the top of the roof. The technician will also document these findings with photos for you. After the full inspection, the technician will provide you with an estimate detailing areas that need to be sealed, damage to your home and our trapping services.
We can do many repairs through our exclusion (preventative repairs) services, however, we cannot do everything. Any repairs that involve concrete around the foundation, rotting wood, and roofing work need to be done by a carpenter who specializes in those areas.
At Apex Wildlife Control, we pride ourselves on our exclusion and trapping services. So much in fact, that we offer three amazing guarantees!
Double Money Back Guarantee:
If for any reason you are not 100% pleased with the quality and workmanship of our exclusion work, we will redo the individual item in question and work to make it right until you are completely thrilled with the outcome. If you are still not satisfied, we will issue you a 100% refund for the item in question. That’s not all though! We will pay a competitor of your choice to fix the issue. Nothing is more important to us than our customer’s complete satisfaction.
110% Best Deal Guarantee:
If you find another reputable wildlife control company in the city of Memphis within 30 days of the date you book our exclusion services who gives you a better overall deal than us AND matches our standards, we will match it plus give you an additional 10% off of their price! There's no one in Memphis that will do a better job for our customers than we will. I guarantee it!
Fort Knox Guarantee:
Are you worried that you will invest a large amount of money to protect your home from wildlife and not be completely covered? At Apex Wildlife Control we completely cover you! 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. 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!
