When it comes to a squirrel invasion, nobody is totally safe from damage. Even new homes with no apparent damage are vulnerable, as squirrels are able to enter through the tiniest of holes, or even make their own. To ensure a healthy and safe home for your family, let a professional squirrel exterminator like those here at Critter Control® of West Palm take care of the problem for you.
Why Are Squirrels Such a Problem?
Squirrels are known to become aggressive when cornered or when they feel threatened, potentially putting your family at risk. A they build their nests in your attic and make themselves at home, their urine and feces is absorbed into your home and transported throughout by the ventilation system, exposing your family to nauseating smells.
Additionally, squirrels pose a serious threat to the health of your home. Their teeth are always growing, causing them to constantly gnaw on wooden roof structures, base boards, and electrical wiring. What’s worse, these critters often trample and soil attic insulation, leading to higher energy costs and expensive repairs.
What Should I Look For?
Holes chewed in soffits around the outside of your home, the foul smell of squirrel droppings, or scratching coming from your walls or ceiling are all good indicators of a squirrel problem. When these critters decide to take up residence in a house, they can be nearly impossible for you to remove on your own. Though there are numerous commercially available traps out there, we advise against taking matters into your own hands.
