Problems & Damage Caused Flying squirrels often enter houses searching for warmth, a place to raise their young, and food. Once inside, they congregate in attics and wall voids and cause significant damages. For example, in their attempt to get indoors, flying squirrels may make cracks and holes in roofs, walls, and siding bigger. The pests also tear up the insulation in walls, chew on electrical wiring, and spread unpleasant smells throughout homes when their urine and droppings accumulate. Prevention & Removal To reduce the chances of finding flying squirrels in the house, individuals can seal all points of entry. This entails replacing broken window and door screens, repairing holes in roofs, and making sure all vents have fitted covers. Since prevention doesn't always work, homeowners may still find infestations of the pest. At the first sign of flying squirrel activity, it's best to contact wildlife control. The specialists at Critter Control are trained to get rid of flying squirrels in the house in the safest and most efficient way possible.
