Do you have… squirrels running in your attic, squirrels scratching in your walls, squirrels in your chimney, squirrels in your basement, squirrels in your soffits, baby squirrels in your attic, or squirrels running through your home? We trap squirrels and exclude squirrels from residential and commercial properties on a daily basis. Squirrel removal and squirrel damage repair is our specialty.
Squirrels can seem cute and are very entertaining. But they can also cause quite a bit of damage to a home, especially once they have entered the attic. They are notorious chewers and chew everything to help keep their teeth, which continuously grow, ground down so they do not outgrow their mouths. They will chew the insulation off of A/C lines, the wood framing, your belongings that are stored in boxes in your attic, and even the insulation on electrical wiring creating a fire hazard. They have two litters per year consisting of anywhere from 2-5 young typically, once in the Spring and another late Summer/early Fall. Squirrels populations can grow rapidly and once they have entered an attic they can be quite tricky to remove, especially if there are young present. For this reason if you are currently hearing noises in your attic it is important to give us a call and let us help remove your squirrels and seal up your home before they have babies. This is exactly what we do!!
Squirrels are very interesting and cute creatures to watch. They are very active in this community and are not aggressive at all unless protecting their young. Thought fun to watch, they can get into our homes and business quite easily through a relatively small hole simply by making it bigger. They are excellent chewers, and in fact they must chew to file their teeth down or they will continue to grow until the squirrel can no longer feed. Squirrels love to chew on wood and once inside our attics, that is a scary sound indeed. Not only that, they often chew on electrical wiring insulation which can cause a serious fire hazard. Our attics provide a perfect habitat for squirrels to get out of the cold weather and once they enter, they must be excluded and or trapped and be removed. Once they have been removed we can then SQUIRREL PROOF YOUR HOME to ensure you do not have this problem again in the future.
Flying Squirrel Removal And Flying Squirrel Trapping
Flying squirrels are the smallest of the tree squirrels, the least common, and the only nocturnal tree squirrel (although fox squirrels have been occasionally noted to exhibit nighttime activity). They are found in isolated populations around the state. Flying squirrels are about the same size as red squirrels, with large, reflective black eyes for better night vision. The colouring is duller than a red squirrel and you will be able to see the extra flap of skin on each side. Flying squirrels are nocturnal. Most squirrels are diurnal which means they are active during the day. Flying squirrels are very long lived in captivity – up to 12 years. They will store food in their nest in great quantities. Flying squirrels are small to medium rodents highly adapted for an arboreal lifestyle. They are generally slim and leggy animals with large bushy tails, which often makes them appear larger than they actually are. Flying Squirrels are arboreal nocturnal creatures not generally found in the pet trade. But the Southern Flying Squirrel ( Glaucomys volans ) is sometimes available in states where it is legal to own. Flying squirrels are not partial to cone samaras, as was once believed. Flying squirrels are the most arboreal of the squirrels, meaning that they are least likely to descend to the forest floor and prefer to occupy the highest levels of the forest. Consequently, only mature forest stands with complete canopies are suitable for these squirrels; flying squirrels are rarely found in younger forests. Flying squirrels are not true fliers but gliders. They leap from high vantages and spread the arms and legs, stretching the loose skin of the body into an efficient sail.
