The Nature Squirrels

Squirrels may seem adorable when they quietly nibble nuts while sitting on your fence. While they prefer to nest in trees, squirrels sometimes like to make their homes in human habitats. In such cases, they become a nuisance and wreak havoc on your property and belongings. These animals typically build nests in attics, chimneys, roofs, vents, walls, and garages. They can chew through virtually any material, including wood, insulation, electrical wires, and shingles.

When squirrels have taken over your home, you will hear the sounds of their activity in your attic, walls, chimneys etc. You may also notice you have a squirrel infestation by seeing the damage they cause through their gnawing. Squirrels are active during the day, especially in the early morning and late afternoon hours.

Squirrels Should be Relocated by Experts

Attempting to capture these animals using your own devices can prove to be dangerous. The best way to prevent squirrels from making your attic their home, is to trap them, relocate them to areas away from home, and close up the entry points they have used and any other vulnerable places where they could enter.

Don't Allow Squirrels to Live with You

It is never a good idea to let a wild animal take up permanent residence inside your home or business. There are several ways squirrels can cause damage:

  • Loss of heat: If a squirrel has gotten in through a hole in your roofline, chances are he is going to continue to chew, making that hole larger. This and insulation damage will cause your heating bills to rise.
  • Chewed items: Squirrels do a lot of chewing. They will chew wood, plastic, stored items, and even electrical wires. So not only can they damage what they are chewing on, they can cause a whole lot more damage if their wire chewing sparks a house fire.
  • Parasites: Rodents, even squirrels, have been known to transmit plague and a host of other diseases and illnesses. It is never a good idea to have them roaming free inside your home.
Proof You Have Squirrel a Invasion

If you are hearing bumping, thumping and scratching noises coming from your attic and wall voids at night, chances are you have mice or rats. But if you are hearing these noises in the daytime, your invader might be a squirrel. Some other signs to look for (or smell for), to detect squirrels in your home, are: 

  • an unpleasant odor in the attic caused by urine and feces
  • holes along your roofline
  • or tiny footprints in dusty areas that look like the skeleton outline of a human hand
  • a squirrel nest in the attic
