Do you have squirrels on the roof of your home? If you have squirrels on the roof of your home, you're not alone. Squirrels can be some of the cutest and funniest animals to watch. However, squirrels can also potentially be a hazard to your property. They can be seen running on your roof. This may seem innocent, but that is not always the case. If you have seen squirrels on your roof, then you need to check for signs of entry. Some signs include chewed corners on your soffits and holes in your siding or roof. You may also notice droppings in your attic, and scratching noises in your walls or ceilings.
Squirrels may be small, but they can do a lot of damage. If you hear squirrels on the roof of your home or see chew marks, they may already be in your attic. Squirrels' teeth never stop growing and they constantly have to chew to file them down. Once they gain entrance into your attic, they can chew on electrical wiring and plumbing pipes. They can also damage your duct-work, and HVAC as well. This can lead to very dangerous situations.
If a squirrel decides to nest in your attic, the nests themselves can be a hazard. Squirrels will build their nests from extremely flammable materials such as dried leaves, grasses, twigs, pine needles, and even man-made items such as plastic and cloth. As these nests can easily catch fire, they are hazardous to have in your home.
Did you know that a squirrel's teeth can grow up to SIX INCHES in only one year? These little creatures have to chew constantly in order to keep their teeth filed down enough to eat, otherwise they would starve to death. Unfortunately, the favorite "chew toys" of both squirrels and rats are your wiring. Squirrels are prone to chew wiring inside and outside your home, and have even been electrocuted as a result! If any wires are exposed from being chewed by these animals, they can create a fire. And if these wires are near a flammable nest like this, a fire could start and spread very quickly throughout your home. Some squirrels even make a nest in the air vents which is also a fire hazard.
Wildlife can carry many diseases and parasites into your home, especially through their droppings. You can be exposed to a lot of harmful bacteria if you do not have the correct equipment, which is why we offer a fecal cleaning and deodorization service to our customers. If there is too much urine in the insulation, the moisture can lead to bacteria. If this is in the air vents then it is circulating and stirring up bacteria, sending it throughout your whole house. This could be happening and making everyone sick without you even knowing it.
If you decide to clean it yourself please use proper safety procedures and cleaning supplies. Also, always wear a respirator. Don’t breathe in any harmful chemicals or any particles from the fecal that will be stirred up. Also, wear goggles to protect your eyes. Ensure you are wearing a Tyvek suit and gloves. This will help ensure you don't track bacteria back into the interior of your home. In addition, this will prevent your clothing from getting stained.
Sometimes there are just too many squirrels in one area. If the squirrels have not already gained entry into your home, we offer an outside trapping service. This service is designed to reduce the local squirrel population. Once we trap the squirrels we safely relocate them to an area that is not so populated.
Our trapping process lasts for a total of 7 days. During this time, we make a total of 3 trap checks. At each visit, we will relocate any animals caught and rebait the traps. This service can help alleviate overcrowding and excess damage caused by squirrels to your home.
Apex Wildlife Control performs interior and exterior inspections for homes that have signs of animal damage and activity. Our technicians will perform a full interior and exterior inspection on the property. They will look for any chewed wires, damaged HVAC, and soiled insulation.
Afterward, the technician will perform an exterior inspection from the bottom of your foundation to the top of your roof. He will look for all potential and actual points of entry. Once the technician has finished the inspection, he will provide you an estimate for trapping the squirrels and sealing your home.
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.
Because we stand behind our guarantees, 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 such as the one this little fellow is peeking out of. If there is rotted wood around your home, it needs to be repaired before we perform exclusion. Our contractors cannot secure any of our work to areas of rotted wood that is not sturdy and could easily fall apart.
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!
