Squirrels In Your Ventilation System In Collierville TN

Squirrel Feces And Urine In Your Ventilation System in Collierville TN

Squirrels will sometimes get stuck in the ventilation system. This is a problem for several reasons. When a squirrel gets stuck, it will do everything it can to get out. This can cause a lot of damage. In addition, the squirrel may tire quickly from the struggle and die from exhaustion and dehydration. 

Squirrels Can Sometimes Die In Your Ventilation System

Once the squirrel is dead, the odor will filtrate through your entire home. This makes locating a dead squirrel almost impossible. In many cases, you may have to have all new air ducts installed. If we are able to locate the squirrel, we will remove it and deodorize the area. This service includes the disposal and cleanup. We also deodorize the area to help eliminate the smell.  

How Do Squirrels Get In Your Home?

Clients often ask us the following question, “how did the squirrel get into my home in the first place?” Squirrels gain access to attics through open vents on the side of your house. There are many different vents on your home. Dryer and gable vents are the more commonly used entry points. A gable vent is normally triangular or round and vents your attic. Gable vents are typically screened with a bug mesh. This screening is designed to keep out insects, but not rodents. It is easy for a squirrel or rat to chew through, pull apart or widen these vent openings.

Squirrel Trapping And Exclusion Process

Apex Wildlife Control’s trapping and exclusion prices have a validity period of seven days. Our exclusion process typically takes one to two days to perform depending upon the size of your home. When we completely seal your home, we have a one-year warranty and guarantee against re-entry.

We completely seal all potential and actual entry points. The one exception is the primary point of entry. We put an excluder trap over this point of entry. We leave this open so any squirrels can leave the attic. This trap allows the squirrel to leave but not re-enter. Squirrels will usually exit the attic within one to two days. Once all squirrels are gone, we seal the final point of entry. We give a one-year warranty and guarantee against re-entry through all points we have sealed.

Apex Wildlife Warranty And Double Money Back Guarantee

Apex Wildlife Control has a one-year warranty for all of our exclusion work. We guarantee all our work against re-entry. If squirrels breach our work, we will trap and reseal the area at no additional cost.
