If you have found that you are in need of squirrel removal you have most likely seen the squirrel entering an area of your home or you have heard them running around during the early mornings and day. When it comes to getting the squirrels out of your home we recommend contacting one of the Wildlife Specialists on our National Directory to get the needed help with squirrel eviction and removal.
Squirrels are a member of the rodent family and while they don’t need very large holes to be able to enter a home they also have a habit of chewing into places that they want to get into. This is of no fault of their own, their four front teeth never stop growing and they have to chew in order to keep the teeth whittled down and manageable. Most squirrels that get into your home are doing so because of the safety and climate that it provides in looking for a home.
While some squirrels may seem social and healthy we would like to remind you that they are wild animals. As soon as they find their way into your home they consider it there home, if you try to scare them out there is no accurate way to predict their response. This has also been known to cause them to run deeper into your home or walls. By allowing this it can make the eviction harder to complete as sometimes the animal will get stuck in between the walls or in piping and will eventually die there.
On top of the damage created when the animal gets into your home squirrels can make quite a mess while they are in your home. Due to their predisposition to chewing they tend to not stop when they get into your home. This can lead to wood and framing damage as well as damage to wiring in your home. When squirrel removal is completed on your home it is best to have any of these damages inspected by an electrician to ensure the wires are still secure and not putting your home at risk for fire. Squirrels also tend to use various items in your attic, for example the insulation, to assist them in nest building. When this occurs there are times that you will need to replace some or all of the insulation due to feces, urine and other damage. The Wildlife Specialist that is assisting with your squirrel removal can help you decide if this needs to be done in your home.
Squirrels in the attic can create quite a mess between their chewing and nesting actions. Once they have been evicted it is important to get any remaining feces, urine and nesting materials cleaned up. Once these actions are completed you may also need to get attic insulation replaced depending on the extent of the damage. The Wildlife Specialist can help you to decide if this is necessary.
