  • We Can Solve It!
Many of Tennessee's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Tennessee's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Hamilton county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Soddy Daisy animal control for wildlife issues.

Soddy Daisy Wildlife Removal Tip: What can mice climb?

Mice are tiny animals but their size does not limit them from reaching higher heights and making across wide lengths. They are very capable and with this capability come a lot of damage and destruction. They use this to their advantage to gain access to homes, buildings and other storage facilities with potential shelter, water and food resources.

Mice will climb electrical wires and cables, vines, ropes, trees and shrubs all in an effort to enter a building or any other confined area. They will make it to the top via rough surfaces such as wood, bricks and weathered sheets. Apart from that, they also have the capability to crawl and make it across augers, pipes, conveyers and conduit.

Other capabilities of the mice that cannot be overlooked include the following. Mice can squeeze through and travel very long distances through very tiny openings. They can fit in a quarter inch diameter tunnel with no problem. As tiny as they are, they are able to jump up to 18 inches vertically without straining. This is high considering their size. They also have no problem crawling and running over a surface while hanging in an upside down manner. This helps them travel in certain enemy and predator-crowded areas without being noticed. They are very swift in their movement. Despite having a short life period, they can survive in harsh conditions for quite a while before giving up on life. With this incredible abilities and capabilities, mice have found their way into homes and other buildings through the following common entry points.

Weep vents

These spaces which are designated to sip excess water out and allow air to circulate so as to keep the bricks dry have been found to allow mice to pass through them. Apparently, they are large enough to allow a mouse to squeeze through its body and get inside.

Gaps between building materials

They include roof gaps and foundation gaps, whose purpose is significant but mice have used them as an opportunity to gain entry into buildings. It gets even more worrisome since these gaps are usually located all round the perimeter building thus they have multiple selection points to use to get inside.

Door and window frames

No space should be left out when fixing doors and windows to their respective frames. Instead, carpenters should make sure that the two fit tightly leaving no space that may otherwise be used by rats to gain entry into houses. In other cases, doors tend to hang unevenly leaving an allowance just enough for a rat to squeeze through.

Roof vents

Some vents have too large spaces which mice use to enter inside while others are made of weak material such as aluminium and plastic which mice can easily chew through them to create a clear passage.
