Squirrels in the Attic Springdale

Squirrel in the Attic have become a growing issue in Springdale. Attics are warm and dry and a perfect place for squirrels to get out of the wild to give birth to their young. It’s not the noise in your attic that should worry you, but the damage squirrels can make by chewing!

Most commonly in Springdale, we find an adult female squirrel with babies in attics. Often, if you hear a scratching noise, this indicates a female squirrel is preparing to give birth. If you act quickly, you can circumvent this and hopefully minimize damage created by squirrels in the attic.

Besides squirrel infestations in your attic, you don’t want damage or odor coming from your attic! The noises from your attic are unnerving and a squirrel can cause potential fire hazards by chewing on your electrical wires. The biohazards of the urine and feces can also cause respiratory infections. Squirrel droppings can also carry parasites that are unhealthy for both your family and pets.

In October 2019, we were called out to a home that squirrels had chewed electrical wires in their attic and caused 2 fires within 2 weeks!  Check out this video!

Squirrels in the Attic Springdale – Squirrel Infestations

If you leave remnants of squirrels in your attic, such as droppings, urine, nesting material, food, hair, etc., these things can attract insects like roaches. Most importantly, the scent left behind often attract new squirrels to chew or break their way into your home once again. Mold can also grow on the areas in your attic with feces and urine and potentially cause respiratory infections and diseases that are easily spreadable.

Squirrels in the Attic Springdale – Common Problems

Since squirrels are rodents that have front teeth that continue to grow, they constantly chew to keep their teeth sharp and manageable. Some of the most common squirrel problems in attics we’ve seen are:

  • Chewing into attics and setting up nests
  • Fires or fire risks from chewed electrical wiring and electrical fixtures in attic which case sparks (fire hazards) or destruction of other electronics
  • Destroyed insulation (by pushing it down), which will reduce your R-factor
  • Strong odor of fecal matter and urine collected in attic insulation
  • Dead squirrels in attic, with bad odor problems;
  • Drywall damage caused by squirrels digging holes in ceiling
  • Chewed on support beams, HVAC duct lines, pipes and roof braces

Squirrels in the Attic Springdale – Squirrel Diseases

Squirrels leave urine and feces in attics, and carry parasites, making them carriers for the diseases that fleas, ticks, and more can transmit and spread. They leave lots of droppings, which can expose you to health risks such as leptospirosis or salmonella.

Common Squirrel Removal Tasks in Springdale:

  • Home Inspections to Find Entry Hole(s)

  • Seal Shut Entry Holes after Removal

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.

Matt at Alpha Wildlife is such a nice and professional guy. I always like to hire veteran owned companies and you can tell that he has that demeanor about him. He was able to help with the squirrels in our attic in Bartlett, TN. Great guy.

David and Matt at Alpha Wildlife are awesome to work with. We live in Germantown, TN and had rats in our home. They were quick to diagnose the problem and got the rats out of our home. Great work from both of them.

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

Happy Clients

TRAPPING

The first step in the wildlife process is removing the problem animal. Once the animal is identified, Alpha Wildlife will take the specific approach required. This means we 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 position our traps that will be most effective in catching the animal.

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. The goal here is twofold.
On one hand, we want to make sure that the animals stay out of your home. Our second objective is to make sure 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.
Additionally, we will complete an inspection to look for other signs of problematic animals. Sometimes there are indicators that other critters have been through. We want the process to be thorough so it doesn’t happen again.

REPAIR

Sometimes wildlife in the attic or crawlspace causes so much damage that the insulation 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.
Sometimes a homeowner would like to use their insurance to cover the cost of the restoration. If this is the case, 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 an insulation or vapor barrier replacement. This process usually takes a day or two.
