Sometimes it’s hard to tell when you home has been invaded by squirrels. Their bushy bodies make it seem as though they cannot fit through small holes when in reality, some can fit into holes the size of a nickel. So homes that have no apparent damage may still be harboring a couple of furry intruders. To keep your home and family safe, it’s best to hire a professional exterminator like the ones at Critter Control® to eliminate your problem.
Why are They Dangerous?
When building nests in your home, they are known to rip apart walls and insulation, damaging the infrastructure and breaking A/C units. As they settle in more, their feces and urine will absorb into your home, and the smells that come with it will carry throughout your home.
Squirrels can also pose a serious threat to the structure of your home. Since their teeth are always growing, they need to gnaw on things all the time like wooden roof structures, baseboards, walls, and electrical wiring. Frayed electrical wiring can lead to major fires in your home.
Know the Signs
If you see holes chewed in your soffits, smell something foul like urine or feces, or hear scratching noises coming from your walls or ceiling, you probably have a squirrel problem. Once a family of squirrels decides to move in with you, it can be nearly impossible to get them out, especially by someone who is untrained. Luckily, the experts at Critter Control® are here to help. Our expert exterminators will quickly and efficiently remove all unwanted critters from your home, and make sure they never come back by sealing all entry or exit points.
