These little guys are back. We have passed the second week of August which means that most squirrels have had their babies. As a homeowner you should know a few things about squirrels and their babies. First is to know that when you suspect a squirrel problem, you should take prompt action. Be on alert before the month of March and then again in August. In these two months squirrel babies are born and most likely in difficult to reach areas.
You want to do your squirrel removal before it’s too late. What we mean by too late is prolonging when you hear noises in the attic. You should be somewhat familiar with what to listen for when it comes to raccoons, squirrels, and mice. The reason for this is that, any wildlife in the attic makes a mess. Squirrels have a necessary habit of chewing everything they come into contact with. These objects include anything that is aluminum, wood, or plastic. Which is almost everything in the attic.
A squirrel’s nesting materials include your insulation, branches, and other shreddable items such as newspaper. They may displace your insulation as a consequence of their movement in the attic. So over a period of time your insulation may not properly keep your home warm or cool. This means that you will spend more on utility bills to keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer. Finally, there is also the odor and their feces that will accumulate over time.
