Squirrels in Attics
It is very common for squirrels to enter buildings, primarily in attics. Critter Control of has the professional solutions necessary to get squirrels out of attics and keep them from re-entering the attics of your home.
Why Do Squirrels Go in Attics?
As squirrels have litters of babies twice a year, once in the spring and once in the fall, they are constantly looking for sheltered areas to build their nests. Squirrels get into the attic by chewing holes from the outside, typically above gutters, or at construction gaps where dormers meet the roofline. They may also gain entry to attics by chewing corners of trim or any other weak area that allows them access into the attic space.
What Damage Can Squirrels Cause in Attics?
Squirrels will commonly cause damage to attic insulation, or will chew wires in the attic. More significant, however, is the amount of damage they can do to the outside of the attic, on the exterior of the home. As more litters of squirrels are born in or near the home, these squirrels will grow up, leave the nest and search for new areas within the attic to build their own nests. If squirrel populations are not controlled, they will continue to chew holes around the outside of the attic, sometimes in every corner of the house! The longer the squirrels live in an attic, the more entry points they are going to create.
How to Know if You Have Squirrels in Your Attic:
Unless you are able to identify entry points into the attic, you may not know you have squirrels in your attic until you hear them. Customers are generally able to hear squirrels in attics when the squirrels wake up at daybreak and leave their nests in search of food. Squirrels will make scratching or scurrying noises in the ceiling. In many cases, customers will hear squirrels in the attic because their attic is finished. People with finished attic floors or beams can easily hear squirrels when they move around. source: crittercontrol.com
