When you think of wildlife infestations, squirrels are probably not at the top of that list. Our customers rarely know how much of a problem squirrels can be until they have an infestation in their home. The most common squirrel problems include:
If a squirrel has made its way into your home, it is likely going to be in the attic because they are accessing this area of the house from trees or power lines. Like rodents, squirrels are looking for a safe place to build a nest.
Squirrels seem like passive animals, but they can actually be quite aggressive if they feel threatened. This is especially true when you are dealing with a mother protecting her young. Squirrels can also become aggressive defending their food sources.
Don’t let their small size fool you! Squirrels can cause major damage to a home. Insulation can become torn or matted down while they create nests. Damaged insulation will cost homeowners thousands in repair and a loss of energy efficiency. Squirrels also have to chew constantly in order to keep their teeth healthy. They will chew on anything possible including wood, pipes, ductwork, and wiring.
Common Damages Caused by Squirrels:
On The Fly’s experienced state licensed technicians will use careful and precise methods to humanely remove and relocate squirrels from your home. We will start with a thorough inspection of your property to determine the entry points and scope of the infestation. From there, we will use humane techniques to trap and remove the animals and ensure that baby squirrels are also relocated safely during this process.
The last step is cleanup and decontamination. Squirrels leave hair, oils, urine, feces, nesting materials, soiled insulation, and food. It’s very important to clean up and decontaminate the area because it could lead to more problems after they have been removed. There may also be a major odor problem because of the waste they left behind. Squirrel waste can also be a source of illness. Our cleanup service includes using an enzyme-based fogger to disinfect the area and get rid of the smell.
