    How To Identify Squirrel Problems


    Squirrel Description
    With over one hundred different species and a presence on every continent except Antarctica, squirrels are certainly one of the most commonly seen and tolerated mammals. Squirrels are curious in nature and most species adapt very well to human presence. Due to their seemingly careless nature, they are often the source of nuisance wildlife complaints and can be very destructive when they invade personal property. Each species poses its own squirrel removal challenge and in most cases it is best to contact or hire a trained professional to handle the issue. Squirrels are persistent, which is why it can be helpful to hire a professional to not only remove the nuisance squirrels but to examine and repair your home to eliminate the chance of future squirrel infestation.


    Squirrel Habitats
    Squirrels primarily live in wooded areas and mostly build their nests in trees, however, it is very common for squirrels to nest in attics or walls of residential homes or commercial buildings. Squirrel problems are often identified by home or business owners when they can be heard scratching or moving around from inside the structure.


    Squirrel Entry
    Squirrels are tenacious and persistent creatures that will work very hard to gain entry into attics and other spaces. If you are experiencing a squirrel problem in your home or place of business, chances are these nuisance critters have already established multiple entry points. Our squirrel removal professionals will assess the problem and take the necessary steps to not only remove the squirrel or squirrels from your home or building but also repair damaged areas and reduce the possibility of future squirrel infestation.

     

    What To Do Before The Squirrel Removal Specialist Arrives

     

    Squirrel Control and Safety
    Squirrels are not dangerous animals, however, if you are able to identify with certainty that you have squirrels in your attic we recommend that you contact your local Critter Control office and take a few steps to prepare for the technician’s arrival. You should be able to identify the general area of the home or building that the squirrels are nesting based on the sounds you hear while inside the home. Take a walk around the exterior and try to identify the point(s) of entry. This will be helpful for the squirrel removal technician. Once the family of squirrels has entered your attic area they will essentially settle in and make it home. They will establish areas to sleep, urinate and eat. They have a tendency to be very destructive, and despite their small size, squirrel damage in attics is often extensive.
