If you hear or spot a squirrel on your roof or in your soffit, it’s often no big deal. But sometimes the squirrels are working on entering your home and it is important to trap the squirrel immediately and take it far away from your home. The squirrel may be gathering food for her babies in your attics, so make sure you check your attic for baby squirrels (kits) as well.
If you are not experienced in wildlife habits, you may want to hire our local Oak Ridge wildlife removal company that practices humane removal.
To minimize squirrel invasions, don’t leave things out that attract them such as bird feeders, fruit trees, trees right near your home and small open holes. Squirrels can fit into small spaces and often find holes already in your home and chew their way into your home and create their nest.
Squirrels move fast, are very agile, and rotate their back feet to crawl down trees and homes head first! For homeowners, it’s important to keep trees away from your home, and don’t leave debris piled close to your home. Squirrels, like raccoons and possums, enjoy eating the food for your pets left outside.
If squirrels find any entry points into your home, they can get into your attic without any difficulties. They can squeeze into very small holes that seem too tiny for them. Squirrels can also be on your roof or soffit because they’re on their way in or out of your attic as they leave their nest several times a day in search for food. This is usually an indicator of a squirrel trying to care for its family somewhere in your home.
Sometimes their habitat gets damaged and the wintery environment forces them to look for warmth and safety n a building or your home. Squirrels do tear up the dormers that meet the roofline of your home and get access to your attic. Their front teeth constantly grow, so to combat that and keep their teeth sharp, they chew, chew and chew – all day long!
