A Day In The Life Of A WILDLIFE SPECIALIST / SALES REP!
($36,000 To $52,000/Year PLUS BONUS!)
Birds, beasts and rodents wait for no man. Especially when there is an attic or crawl space to tear, rip, and chew their way into!
We see all kinds of wildlife damage to homes in the Memphis area on a daily basis. When smaller wildlife such as mice, rats, or squirrels find a tiny hole or crack on the outside of a home, they will chew away at this entry point until they can squeeze through. Once these smaller animals have entered a home, they will leave their scent through their feces and urine. Larger animals will follow this scent and tear away at these openings to try to enter the home as well. Nuisance wildlife can do a great deal of damage to a home. Animals can easily destroy HVAC ducting and chewed wires can start house fires. Permanent damage to insulation from animal droppings can lead to costly attic restoration, not to mention the expense of sealing entry points where these animals are getting in. The aggravation of removing wildlife and sealing a home can be overwhelming to any homeowner.
And that’s where we come in!
Our goal is to resolve each of our clients’ wildlife problems in a fast, competent, and humane manner. We not only trap and remove nuisance wildlife, but we also work to seal up existing and possible entry points. As a Wildlife Specialist / Sales Rep, one of your primary responsibilities will be conducting interior and exterior inspections of residential and commercial buildings, documenting your findings with photos, and writing an estimate for trapping wildlife and sealing the home against future little “visitors”. Because our wildlife specialists are so thorough and detailed, each inspection will take about an hour and a half to complete. We look for the tiniest of spaces that an animal could use to enter a home. The photo on the right shows a gap that a rat could easily chew its way into. Since rats can squeeze through a space the size of a quarter, plus they have SIX TIMES the bite strength per square inch of a great white shark, (you learn the coolest facts working here!), this gap could become a rat highway in no time. There are NO HARD SALES here. Our job is to help homeowners protect their homes from wildlife. Most people will not have the tools, time or experience to take care of this problem themselves. A friendly smile and a sincere desire to help our clients will go a long way in this career. We expect our employees to mirror and represent the high standards Apex Wildlife Control is known for. We are not "out looking for a quick buck”. We sincerely want to help our clients solve their wildlife problems for their own safety and peace of mind. A successful Wildlife Specialist / Sales Rep will demonstrate honesty, integrity, and genuine concern for our clients and the wildlife they need removed.
The FUN PART!
Here at Apex Wildlife Control, we do a lot of live cage trapping! We mostly trap raccoons, opossums, armadillos, squirrels, skunks, and the occasional curious outdoor cat. Since we only use humane live cage traps, our wildlife friends can be released unharmed into one of several wildlife reserves around Memphis. (Of course, the cats are released on site and usually shoot us a dirty look before they head back home. But we don't mind...that's just what cats do.) The little albino raccoon in these photos was trapped and released without harm. We see albino animals once in a while, and while they’re cute to look at, you have to remember that they’re still a wild animal. This little fellow would like everyone to know that he would rather be out in the woods than indoors as someone's pet, thank you very much.
And then there’s BABY SEASON!
Sometimes in nature, orphans happen. And nobody loves wildlife babies more than the staff of Apex Wildlife Control! Our wildlife babies are fed and cared for while we contact one of our many local wildlife rehabilitators, licensed by the State of Tennessee. Our babies are then transported by one of our technicians safely into the hands of the rehabilitator, where they will be raised in a manner that will allow them to eventually be released into the wild.
