• Examine Your Attic Vents – If you have plastic attic vents, you’re giving squirrels an easy access point into your attic.
Squirrels, especially gray squirrels, are common throughout Minnesota but specifically the twin cities and the metro area. Squirrels are members of the rodent family and are highly arboreal. They tend to be very highly active in the summer and in the fall where they scavenge for food for the winter.
Tree squirrels generally nest in trees in wooded areas. Since Minnesota has a ton of wooded areas that we keep building into, it is forcing squirrels to look for alternative places to live and therefore housing structures are a great choice. The most common invaded areas are garages and attics. Squirrels reach these areas by chewing holes in the exterior of the structure and typically nest, store food or both. Their activity is usually noisy and heard by anyone in close proximity.
Squirrels are active and curious creatures and are always on the lookout for food and shelter. When they climb trees on your property, they gain access to your roof and siding and even with a very small opening, they can find their way inside your home. It’s impossible to pinpoint exactly when it happens but before you know it, squirrels can do a significant amount of damage to the exterior of your home, particularly to areas of wood, fascia or siding that might already be vulnerable.
Springtime is a season of renewal and beauty – snow melts, trees and flowers blossom, and new baby animals emerge. Unfortunately, it can also be an especially vulnerable time for homeowners when it comes to wildlife problems around their home. Read these tips on what you can do about wildlife problems in spring and how to keep wild animals away from your property.

Three different species live in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area – gray squirrels, red squirrels, and flying squirrels.

Squirrels can climb so getting to your roof or in a small hole in your fascia, walls or through your chimney is no challenge.
