Squirrels are well known for being ambitious critters that will go above and beyond to find a place they consider safe to live. When squirrels find shelter inside your home, they also start a family. This means squirrel removal is better left to professionals that can resolve the pest problem in a safe and humane way. A little family of squirrels may sound cute, but they can cause some serious damage to your property.
How do you know if squirrels have invaded your home? First, inspect specific areas like the garage, attic, crawlspaces, and sheds. Look for holes in any fencing or any screens as well. These are all prime locations for squirrels. A sure sign that you have an invader is if you hear something coming from the walls or the ceiling. Another being if you find foreign animal droppings around your home in secluded spaces.
After squirrels have been humanely removed from your home, prevention is the next step. Consider installing exclusion barriers around your home, it’s an excellent way to prevent future invasions. Squirrels are not typically aggressive but can always do damage by spreading disease or chew through wood/wiring. This can pose a threat to any home that has children or animals.
