There is probably not a day that goes by in White Bear Lake when you do not see a squirrel. There are many squirrels in Minnesota. Three different species live in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area – gray squirrels, red squirrels, and flying squirrels. Squirrels are cute and pretty harmless to humans unless they decide to enter your home. Minnesota weather is harsh and during the coldest months, squirrels like to stay warm and are looking for food. Squirrels can climb so getting to your roof or in a small hole in your fascia, walls or through your chimney is no challenge. If you think that you might have a squirrel in your home, reach out immediately to the team at Minnesota Wild Animal Management.
Common Problems When Squirrels Enter Your Home
Squirrels can create many problems if they find their way into your home. They are aggressive chewers and use those teeth to chew on wiring, pipes, ducts, wood, even ceilings and siding. They can do a fair amount of damage to your home given their size. Squirrels can also gain entry into your home through inaccessible and very tiny areas. They can cause structural damage that can be really expensive to repair. In addition, squirrels reproduce quickly and have two litters each year. Each litter will have 3-5 babies, so if they nest in your home, you may have multiple squirrels on your hand before you know it. Squirrels can also carry parasites, dirt and bacteria and can leave your home unsanitary.
