Squirrels in your Walls – Memphis TN
Think you have a squirrel inside your walls? Or is there an odor coming from your wall cavity?
If you hear noises in the morning and evening that move upwards or downward, there’s a good chance it’s a squirrel. Squirrels find their way into homes in search for a secluded, safe and quiet place to give birth. The narrow nature of wall cavities are perfect for squirrels as there’s a smaller chance of predators sneaking up on them. The warmth and darkness are similar to the environment of a den. Most of the time they’re just looking for a safe nesting place where their babies will be safe and dry.
What Should you Do if you Hear a Squirrel in Your Walls
Be proactive and hire a wildlife removal specialists in the Memphis area to remove the squirrel for you before it has babies or causes major damage. Professional wildlife trappers will inspect your home for entry points, set up traps, look for babies, clean and sanitize the area, and seal the entry. Mice and rats tend to stay on the floor of the wall cavity.
