Squirrels are active threw out the day except for flying squirrels which are primarily nocturnal. They have a large array of predators including hawks, cats, snakes, owls, dogs and even humans.
Though not a huge health risk, if allowed entry into an attic or crawlspace, squirrels may chew threw electrical lines causing power outage or even house fires.
Once our team safely removes the pest or small creatures that was invading your home, it’s important to do the work to ensure no more animals have a way of getting inside you home. For squirrels, it’s important to remove tree branches that lie close to your roof. If you have a bird feeder can be attracting squirrels to your home. For more questions on our squirrel removal services, please contact us. It is always best to keep food sources such as acorn trees or bird feeders away or not around the home to minimize the chances of gaining entry in the attic or crawlspace.
