If you hear scurrying behind your walls or in your attic, if your pet dogs and cats spend hours fixated on a seemingly blank wall, if you notice pellet-like droppings in your attic or basement, you likely have one or more squirrels living in your attic or behind your walls.
The Dangers of Squirrel Invasion
Squirrels can enter your home through even the smallest gaps between the roof and the eaves. Once inside, they often cause expensive damage to your attic insulation, wooden roof structures, and even electrical wiring. Additionally, if one should become trapped and die behind your wall, you’ll have to deal with an unpleasant smell for months or longer, which often requires expensive repair work to rectify. Squirrels can also carry disease and compromise your indoor air quality and the health of your pets.
Leave it to the Pros
Getting rid of squirrels who have invited themselves to live inside your home can be a challenge. It takes skill and training to humanely trap and remove any nuisance squirrels without damaging the house or injuring the animal. It can also be tricky to know just where in the house the animals are living. What’s more, a colony of squirrels can grow fapidly. That’s why it’s important to contact a professional pest control company as soon as you suspect you have a squirrel problem.
