It’s not uncommon for squirrels to enter your home. Whether they climb in your attic or rustle through your walls, your home is in many ways the ideal location for a squirrel to settle. It’s warm, it’s protected from predators, and there’s even insulation for nesting. Here’s what you need to know about squirrel control.
How to Tell You Have Squirrels
The easiest way to tell you have squirrels is to see them – either on your roof or in your attic. Squirrels will likely leave behind evidence in the form of droppings and damage to your property – look for chew marks or scraps of nesting material. Finally, if they’ve been inside your house for long enough, there’s a good chance you’ll be able to smell them, as they’ll leave urine and feces behind.
Why You Need Squirrel Control
Essentially, you need to keep squirrels out of your house for three reasons:
- They bring disease and pests inside.
- The smell and noise are both offputting.
- They can cause serious damage to your home by chewing through walls, pipes, and wires.
There are several humane ways to remove squirrels from your property. One way doors are popular – when the squirrel leaves, they can’t return. You can also set a trap and relocate the squirrel. However they are removed, one of the most important things to remember is this: after the squirrel has been removed, you need to seal the holes they used to access your home. Luckily, the technicians at Critter Control® are able to seal any entry points around your home for you.
