How to Know if You Have Squirrels in Your Attic
Squirrels are commonly identified by scratching or scurrying noises in the ceiling. That’s especially true in homes with finished attic floors or beams. Squirrels are most active in the early morning, when they leave their nests in search of food.
Why Do Squirrels Go in Attics?
Squirrels are always looking for sheltered areas to build nests for their litters. They gain access to attics by chewing holes above gutters or at construction gaps where dormers meet the roofline. Squirrels will also chew corners of trim or any weak area that gives them access to a shelter.
What Damage Can Squirrels Cause in Attics?
Squirrels often cause damage to attic insulation or electrical wiring in the attic. But the most damage is done over time as multiple litters of squirrels are born in or near the home. As these squirrels grow and leave the nest, they often will set up their own nests within the same attic. If the initial intrusion is not addressed in time, the damage to your home will increase quickly. Not only will they continue to chew through wiring and damage insulation, but in doing so, they will create more entry points for other squirrels.
