The Eastern Gray Squirrel is the most commonly found nuisance animal in attics across America. If you've got a critter in your your attic, it's likely a squirrel. An attic is like a big-hollow tree to to a squirrel - a great place to live in, raise young in, use insulation for nesting material, and chew on wood and electrical wires!
What Kind of Noise Do They Make?
If you hear noises during the daytime, you've probably got squirrels. Squirrels are most active in the morning and evening, so most people report hearing the sounds at that time. Squirrels are fast and light, so much of the noise sounds like fast scurrying or running, usually in the attic, near the edge of the roof, and sometimes in the walls or chimney. Call Raccoons R Us in West Palm Beach, FL for our squirrel and bat removal service.
How Did They Get in My Attic?
They either chewed their way in, or they took advantage of an existing hole or gap in the architecture. Unscreened vents, both gable vents, roof vents, and soffit vents make great entry points. Squirrels almost always enter the house somewhere at roof level.
How Do I Solve the Problem?
As with any animal, the best method is trapping, removal, and relocation of the squirrels. In some cases, exclusion with one-way exclusion doorwill work 97% of time. I, the owner of Raccoons R Us, designed the tunnling system 34 years ago and over 400 companies are using it at this time.
How to Prevent New Squirrels in the Future?
The most important step-once all the squirrels are gone, seal shut all the entry points with steel wire which rodents can't chew through. It's also a good idea to clean the attic and remove the nesting material and dropping.
