Squirrels are very interesting creatures. They can are fun to watch scurrying around your lawn, jumping from tree to tree and hoarding and burying nuts for a future meal. Squirrels average 8-20” in length, weigh between ⅓ of a pound to 1.5 pounds and live in the wild an average of 6 years. They generally nest in trees, however, if they decide to take up residence in your attic, around your chimney or on your roof, and they can damage your siding, insulation, or even electrical wires in or around your home. Squirrels teeth grow for their entire life, so are constantly chewing. In the wild, they may chew on wood, sticks, nuts and bark. In your home, they can cause serious damage.
