How To Identify Tree Squirrel Problems
Tree Squirrel Description
The tree squirrel species includes fox squirrels, eastern gray squirrels and red squirrels. Tree squirrels are persistent, which is why it can be helpful to hire a professional to not only remove the nuisance tree squirrels but to examine and repair your home to eliminate the chance of future tree squirrel infestation.
Tree Squirrel Habitats
Tree squirrels primarily live in deciduous forests, but are very comfortable living in cities or suburbs with scattered trees. It is common for tree squirrels to nest in attics, walls of residential homes or unoccupied structures. Tree squirrel problems can be identified by their repeated screeches or scratching from inside the structure.
Tree Squirrel Entry
Tree squirrels are often the source of nuisance wildlife complaints and can be very destructive when they invade personal property. If you are experiencing a tree squirrel problem in your home or place of business, chances are these nuisance critters have already established multiple entry points. Our tree squirrel removal professionals will assess the problem and take the necessary steps to not only remove the tree squirrels from your building but also repair damaged areas and reduce the possibility of future tree squirrel infestation.
What To Do Before The Tree Squirrel Removal Specialist Arrives
Tree Squirrel Control and Safety
Tree squirrels are not dangerous animals, however, if you are able to identify tree 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 tree 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 tree squirrel removal technician.
