Do you hear sounds in the attic? Does it sound like something is chewing through the ceiling? Is there an early morning party in the attic you weren't invited to? If so, you just might have squirrels! Seeing or hearing them run across the roof is a good sign that you need to have a professional wildlife removal specialist check out your home.
Squirrels can be one of the most destructive animals that get inside homes. They move insulation, gnaw on electrical wires, and gnaw on the wooden support beams. Gnawing is the constant nibbling done by rodents to wear down their front teeth so they do not get too long. The gnawing of wiring is perhaps the scariest damage they do. By stripping the insulation from the wires, it increases the chances for a short and thus increases the risk of fire.
Squirrels are excellent climbers and to gain access to your home, they can climb straight up your wall whether you have trees touching or not. The most common reason squirrels enter a home is to give birth to their young. This typically happens twice a year (spring and fall).
