Flying Squirrel Removal Services in Knoxville, TN

Do you need some urgent Flying Squirrel Removal in Knoxville, TN? Call our team right now!

Have you woken up to the sound of scurrying and scratching noises coming from your attic or chimney?

There’s a good possibility that you have flying squirrels in your attic or chimney that have made themselves at home. Why your attic or chimney?

Perhaps, they couldn’t find a tree nearby to nest. When flying squirrels y can’t find a tree, they will seek out tree-like locations – like your attic. They are quick to find an entry into your home, and often they are seeking the warmth found in attics to give birth.

Flying Squirrels Can Be Numerous & Persistent

Unwanted pests in your home are unnerving, but unwanted rodents are worse. You can spend time and money researching ways to rid the flying squirrels in your home, or you can call the wildlife experts at Alpha Wildlife to perform flying squirrel removal.

We have the tools necessary to remove the flying squirrels safely and are trained in the techniques of flying squirrel exclusion in the greater Knoxville area.

How Can Flying Squirrels Be Identified?

Flying squirrels have distinct qualities. Furthermore, they are small, compared to other squirrels such as grey squirrels, are usually no longer than twelve inches, and weigh around five ounces.

They have enlarged eyes and a broad, flattened tail. The term “flying’ is only a misnomer. It’s what we describe as this animal’s mobility. Flying squirrels have a patagium (wings). These are the extended webs of skin that go from the squirrel’s front and back legs, and it enables the squirrels to fly (they glide!).

They’ve been known to glide the length of a football field. Flying squirrels live in communal families with 4 to 20 other flying squirrels.

Flying Squirrel Damage

The entry holes of flying squirrels are often just a quarter. Moreover, they most often cause damage when they enter homes or buildings. The most common entry points are via construction gaps, gaps around siding, chimneys, via louver vents, fascia boards, and soffits.

After flying squirrels’ nest in your attic for a while, you can be sure that their population in your attic increases! So, they chew holes around the outside of your attic in an attempt to create easily accessible entry points.

Flying squirrels chew and gnaw on wood and electrical wires in attics which can start fires.

They can also cause damage by leaving droppings and urine stains on attic insulation. We can remove the soiled insulation and replace it if needed. Outside of your home, flying squirrels chew on shrubs and bark on trees, raid bird feeders and gardens, and dig holes in the turf.

Sometimes flying squirrels carry diseases like rabies which can be dangerous to your pets, along with ticks, mites, and parasites.

Home Repair After Flying Squirrel Invasions

Once we trap all nuisance pests, the Alpha Wildlife Knoxville team will move on to the next step – repair. Alpha Wildlife trained professionals will recommend the best clean-up and restoration plan depending on the number of droppings in your attic.

Sometimes, you’ll need a full home exclusion after these destructive rodents have invaded and lived in your attic. Therefore, you’ll need exclusion when the flying squirrels have created multiple points of entry. Also, we must seal every gap in your home to prevent re-entry.

Sometimes, we fill crevices where no damage is present to prevent future invasions. If insulation is soiled, we can remove and replace it.

In solving a flying squirrel invasion in your Knoxville-area home, there are several approaches we can take to reduce the possibility of a flying squirrel infestation.

We were really impressed with Chris Mclain’s knowledge of pest control. He was so professional in his explanation of what we needed to have done. His bid was also much lower than our other bid. We highly recommend this company for any pest elimination you need. Michael and Ashley Robilio.

After calling multiple other companies to remove a possibility rabid racoon from my property and was told they could not get to me until the next day, I called Alpha Wildlife. Chris came out within 30 minutes of my call and caught and removed racoon. He said they would check to make sure it was sick. If so they would euthanize humanely. If it was not sick they would release it back into the wild. This made my daughter very happy. I would highly recommend.

REMOVAL PROCESS

100%
Happy Clients

TRAPPING

The first step in the wildlife process is removing the problem animal. Once the animal is identified, Alpha Wildlife will use one of our many different types of traps to remove the animal from the home or business. With live traps it is mandatory that we check the traps every day that they are opened. Based on the entry point, we will position our traps that will be most effective in catching the animal as quickly as possible.

PREVENTION

While we are trapping the problem animal, Alpha Wildlife will begin on the prevention and repairs. Every repair that Alpha Wildlife does is first and foremost, to be effective and aesthetically pleasing. We want to make sure that the animals stay out of your home and your home looks great when we are done. The repairs that we do on your home will be based on the animals that we are preventing reentry from. For example, a bat seal up is much different than a rat seal up.

REPAIR

Sometimes the wildlife in the attic or crawl space has caused so much damage that the insulation and/or vapor barrier needs to be replaced. In this case an Alpha Wildlife technician will take detailed pictures of the damage and provide them to the homeowner. If the homeowner would like to use their insurance to cover the cost of the restoration, then they can provide the estimate and pictures to their insurance representative. Alpha Wildlife works with any insurance company to take care of their customers. Once the work is agreed upon, Alpha Wildlife will schedule a day or two with the customer to have the insulation and/or vapor barrier replaced.
