Having squirrels in the attic is a common problem for homeowners. Squirrels can be pretty mean, so it’s best to let the professionals at Minnesota Wild Animal Management Inc. take care of the problem.
How to Know When Squirrel Control is Needed
The most common complaint homeowners experience is the noise, generally at sunrise. At dawn, squirrels will start to scurry around, on the hunt for food. Sometimes, people will find the hole where the squirrels are getting into the home from the outside–but generally the first sign of a squirrel is the constant irritating noise coming from the attic. It is important to keep track of how long you have been hearing noises, what time of day you hear it, and what area of the house it is coming from so we can create the most ideal plan for you.
Why is it Important to Seek Squirrel Control?
Squirrels search out buildings for shelter and nesting. Squirrels will have babies both in the spring and in the fall, and try to find a place to keep their babies safe, which is usually up in the attics of buildings. If nothing is done to eradicate the squirrels from the attic, their population will continue to grow. When the litter of squirrels grows up, they will start to look for a place of their own to have their babies, which will usually be another area in your attic. It is important to get the squirrels out as soon as possible before they start to call your attic their home.
Control Squirrels and Prevent Damage
Squirrels in your home or office building can cause significant damage if left unattended. Squirrels tend to chew on wires and destroy insulation in attics and walls. Not to mention the smell if one gets stuck somewhere and dies. Squirrels can cause damage to the exterior of your home as well. They can damage siding, gutters and construction gaps by chewing holes to get inside your home.
