Wildlife Control: Your Fall Guide
If you’ve suddenly begun to hear noises in your attic, it’s likely that you need to contact Apex Wildlife Control to schedule wildlife removal services. As the cold season approaches, animals such as squirrels, raccoons, mice, and rats will seek shelter in houses. It’s during this time that many people in the surrounding Greater Memphis Area will experience nuisance wildlife activity in high volume. Understanding a few principles could be key to saving, not only money, but also your property, too.
For starters, it’s important to understand that animals must have a way to gain entry into your property. This seems simple and rather obvious, but you would be surprised to find out how many people go unaware. As the year goes by, small rodents such as rats, squirrels, and raccoons can wreak havoc on your house. For example, rats and squirrels are notorious for chewing holes in ducts, soffits, and paneling. Raccoons are known to literally rip their way into your attic, lifting up boards and pulling. This activity may persist throughout the year, on and off, until an entry point has been established.
After this occurs, it’s only a matter of time until any variety of nuisance wildlife may pay a visit. As they take up residence, your new tenants can cause a number of health concerns. Feces, urine, and dead animals will accumulate, thus providing breeding grounds for various diseases. Further, recent studies show that these critters cause 20% of household fires. Small rodents, prone to chewing entry points, will also chew your wiring, which presents fire hazards. This puts your family and property at risk. With an easy to schedule Apex Wildlife Control inspection, you could prevent all of this.
Our specialists will identify all entry points that the animal has created. Once they have determined the extent of the damage, including all health concerns, they will consult with you. During this consultation, you will be provided with a detailed summary of the findings. If there are damages, you’ll receive an estimate for repairs, which come guaranteed for 1 year. Further, we will trap in order to remove any remaining animals. See our previous articles here to find out why trapping is a superior method to poison.
