What Does Squirrel Damage Look Like?

Common Types of Squirrel Damage

Squirrels can cause a great deal of damage to both the interior and exterior of your home.

Squirrels’ damage usually comes from their chewing and gnawing. Squirrels can squeeze through a hole the size of a golf ball. Squirrels can chew through siding, wood, metal, and shingles to gain access to your attic. 

Once inside your home, squirrels damage attics by chewing wires, ripping up insulation and defecating in the attic.

Problems with Squirrel Infestation 

 A squirrel’s problem goes beyond chewing. Building a nest is another way a squirrel damages your home.

A squirrel typically builds its nest with leaves, grass, moss, and shreds of bark. But once they’re in the attic, they’ll use materials like insulation for their nest.

Squirrel droppings can also harm your health. Mold and fungus can grow in their droppings. Diseases like leptosriosis and Salmonellosis are spread via animal waste. Finally, ectoparasites like fleas, ticks, bed bugs, and chiggers introduced by a wild animal can spread diseases to you and your family.
