Our technician who was on site did an inspection of the roof and figured out squirrels had damaged the home. Squirrels had been going in and out for about a year through chewed ventilation caps on the roof. Furthermore, what was interesting about this job was that a raccoon was also living in the attic.
We asked a few procedural questions and gathered evidence found on the roof. The technicians then determined that a raccoon had infiltrated the squirrel den and was using them as a source of food. Finally, we prepared an eviction one-way door designed for both raccoons and squirrels.
