Is Squirrel Removal Necessary?

Squirrels are probably the most common animal that humans encounter on a daily basis. We encounter them so often that we normally just accept their existence without much of a second thought. But these small creatures are capable of causing homeowners a number of problems if left unchecked. To prevent any damages to your home and property, let Shumaker Animal Control take care of your squirrel infestation. We can help you take the necessary steps for squirrel removal and squirrel control.

Exterior damages

In an effort to find shelter, squirrels will chew through roofs and vents in order to access the home. Once inside the attic, the squirrels are likely to chew even more holes in order to create a clear passage.

If left unattended, these holes will serve to invite even more animals and pests looking for shelter.

Interior damages

After the squirrel has infiltrated the attic, the chances of more damage are only increased. Once they have found their shelter, the squirrel will begin to nest. This involves chewing through insulation, wooden beams, electrical wiring, and not to mention, all the valuables you might be storing in your attic.

In addition to chewing through your insulation, the squirrels will tear it and dig into it in order to create nests for themselves. Not only does this ruin the effectiveness of the insulation, but creates a potential fire hazard.

Health concerns

Another harmful consequence of not removing a squirrel infestation is the potential health and safety problems. Aside from eating and sleeping in your attic, these small creatures will identify and create specific places to go to the bathroom. Having squirrel dropping in your home can be dangerous to the health of everyone, including humans and pets.

These droppings are known to carry diseases and illnesses that are transferable to humans. Plus, the insects carried by squirrels can make a nest of their own in your attic before spreading through the house.

Damaging outside property

When the squirrels are not keeping shelter inside your home, they are rooting around your lawn and gardens in search of food. Squirrels tend to dig holes in the ground in search of roots, fruits, nuts, stems, and bark. Once they find food, these resourceful creatures bury nuts, seeds, and other supplies for later.

All of these holes can severely damage lawns and gardens, and even pose a threat to public safety. If anyone trips over these holes or unearthed roots, it could result in injury.
