Typically, squirrels will find a warm place that is high to nest. They will tend to nest in attics if they can’t find a suitable tree. They enter your attic by chewing a hole in you roof.

What Threats Do Nesting Squirrels Pose?

  • Squirrels chew through wood, plastic and aluminum so they can cause a lot of damage to your home
  • If they are able to enter, your wires, insulation and other parts of your attic are at risk.
  • If a mother squirrels feels like her babies are being threated, she may attack
  • Their dropping carry a lot diseases and can be transmitted easily if not taken care of.

How Are Squirrels Removed?

Through the years, 360 Wildlife Control has formed a variety of methods to safely remove squirrels. The first step is to locate and secure all entry points with steel mesh. A one-way door is then put in place so that squirrels can only leave and not re-enter. Once all the squirrels are out, our technicians then securely seals off your roof so that the squirrels can re-enter.

If there are baby squirrels involved, a person must physically remove them so that they are safe. All the babies are then placed in a “baby box” in order for them to reunite with their mother. We place this box near the entry hole to wait for the mother. The mother then transports her babies to a new location.

Damages caused by squirrels

Your home can incur a lot of damage by squirrels that are looking for a safe place to nest. The attic is a prime spot because its high, dry and warm. The heat emitting from your attic is attractive to squirrels. They start by chewing your roof little by little until they have a clear path inside. While inside they can remove insulation, chew wires, urinate and defecate.

Spotting Squirrels

Squirrels are very recognizable especially with their long bushy tail and exceptional balance. Their versatile, sturdy claws are perfect for climbing to their tree top homes and digging in the earth to bury food for winter survival.

What they Eat

Squirrels tend to eat nuts, seeds, conifer cones, fruits, fungi and green vegetation. They also are fond of bird seeds.

Where they Live

Squirrels prefer their nests (or “dreys”) to be up high in trees. If the perfect spot isn’t available, they’ve been known to find a warm dry spot in attics and chimneys.

Life with Humans

Your siding, insulation, wires are no match to squirrels as they can chew right through them. Squirrels mate quickly and can have a litter of 2-5, therefore it is imperative to put in preventative measures so that they can’t get inside and have their babies. They also can attack people if they feel like their babies are being threated so be careful. The best solution is to call us as we have the necessary experience to deal with the situation.

Prevention

What preventative measure can you use? First eliminate bird feeders, as they act as a source of food for squirrels. Also trimming tree branches that overhang roof tops is a good idea.
