Are Squirrels In Your Walls In Memphis TN?

Do you hear squirrels in the wall of your home in Memphis TN? If you are hearing squirrels in the wall of your home, you're not alone. At Apex Wildlife Control, we get these types of calls every day. If you don't know what you are hearing, that is perfectly okay. Just give us a call and describe what and when you're hearing the noises. Most of the time, scratching in the walls is from smaller rodents like rats or mice.

Most of the time, squirrels can climb out of any type of area they have fallen into.  And if they can't climb out, they can easily chew their way out.  However, every once in a while a squirrel will fall in a hole or crevice and get stuck. This usually happens to a baby or juvenile squirrel.

It is important to take note if the noise is mobile or stationary. If it's stationary, then the squirrel may be stuck. If you think a squirrel is stuck, it is very important to let us know before it dies of hunger or dehydration.

When a squirrel gets stuck in the wall, it can die of dehydration in as little as two days. Squirrels are much easier to locate when they are still alive due to the scratching and crying, especially if we are dealing with a baby squirrel.

However, once a squirrel dies inside a wall it can be very hard to locate. The technician will have to follow the trail by smell alone and may have to open up walls in multiple locations. The technician will drill a small hole into your wall and thread a boroscope into the hole.  He will then use the boroscope camera to locate the squirrel. We do this before cutting into a wall to prevent too much damage.

Our technician will also go in the attic to help him locate where the smell is the strongest. This can help him to determine the source of the odor and how best to remove the dead animal from your home.  Often the dead animal can be found in your insulation, and the odor has simply drifted throughout your home.  This is a much easier fix!


The best solution if you have squirrels in your wall is to completely seal your home. If a squirrel wants to get in, it will find a way. You need to fortify your home as much as possible. During our inspection process, we locate all the potential and actual points of entry. We record any damages and provide pictures of our findings. Once we have gathered all the necessary information, we will present this to you. You will have this information so you can choose Apex Wildlife Control to do the work, do it yourself or even hire a contractor to do the work for you.  

During the exclusion process, we completely seal the building with the exception of the primary point of entry. We leave one entry point unsealed and install an excluder trap over this point of entry. This will allow the squirrel to leave your home, but it is not able to regain entry.

This process allows us to typically solve the squirrel issue within a few short days. We can guarantee that we will remove all the squirrels with this method. If you choose to schedule a trapping-only service, we set live cage traps on the outside of the home. However,  there is no guarantee that the squirrels will go into them. They may see the bait, but they can be trap-shy and not go in.

Squirrels know when something is different or new in their habitat and they may avoid it. Other squirrels may be suspicious because they have been caught or almost caught in a trap before. They may recognize the potential danger. We always ask our customers if they have tried trapping themselves or had another company attempt trapping. If so, squirrels in your wall may be difficult to trap.

When we perform outside trapping, the traps are in an easily seen location. When you walk into your yard, you are able to see if a squirrel is in the trap. We check our traps every other day. However, we ask that our clients call us right away if a squirrel is in a trap. As soon as we are notified, we come out to relocate the squirrel and rebait the trap.

Our main goal is to do everything as humanely and efficiently as possible. Apex Wildlife Control wants the squirrels taken care of and out of harm's way. We also want our customers to feel happy and our technicians to enjoy what they do. Give us a call today. You will be glad you did!

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.

At Apex Wildlife Control, we are a one stop shop for your wildlife removal needs.  Give us a call today!

Our company does not fix rotted wood or do any major carpentry work. If we do need to cut a hole in the wall to remove an animal whether its dead or alive, we will not patch the wall.  You will need to contact a carpenter for that.

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!

So if you have some uninvited little guests crawling around in your walls, give us a call today.  We're here to help!
