Squirrels in the wild are cute, intelligent creatures that sometimes make the move from the wild urban green life to the urban house life. Especially since they are attracted to secure, warm places. There are a few typical places in your home that a squirrel will take up residence. And when this move is made it can cause damage to your home, and to the animal itself.
A New Tenant in the Attic
Typically, squirrels like to move into your attic space. It’s warm, cozy, and a place they can truly make themselves home. Squirrels will gain entry through already existing holes, or they have been known to damage siding, soffits, fascia boards, and chimney flashing or exhaust fans. Remember, squirrels don’t need that big of a hole to gain entry. Once inside they will begin to make their perfect nest. Bringing in sticks, leave, pieces of cloth, and taking some insulation away from your walls.
Squirrels have also been known to chew on wires, thus creating potential fire hazards. Let’s not forget that your attic will also become the squirrel’s very own master suite. Dropping and urine will leave a lasting smell and they also carry potential health risks such as salmonella. But the attic isn’t the only place a squirrel will occupy.
Honey, There’s Something in the Walls
Sometimes squirrels will end up in between the walls of your home. No, they didn’t make a mistake trying to get to some other area. They just found another secure and warm area to nest in. The problem again is when they build their nest; they’re doing it out of flammable material. Add to the fact that squirrels enjoy chewing on wires, and you can see the potential burning problem that is forming. And let’s not forget again the urine and droppings issue.
Squirrels also have no problem living in your chimney, exhaust fan, eaves trough, or crawl space. These places carry the same sort of destruction potential, but they can also add another problem to the mix. Sometimes these places are hard for a small animal to get into, imagine how hard they are for a person. Now imagine that small animal passes away in that small hard-to-get-to space. There will be a problem, a smelly problem for you to then deal with. Therefor it’s important that as soon as your suspect a squirrel is living in your home, you go through the proper steps to remove the animal.
