But They’re so Cute!
While squirrels are known to be one of the more liked rodents, they should not be left to roam around your home. Not only are they known to carry diseases, but they can cause other problems such as:
- Damages– While living in your home or walls, these critters will need a way to travel quickly from room to room in search of food and nesting materials. In order to do that, they have to create holes in your walls or roof, allowing elements from outside like foliage or even other critters to enter with ease. While the search for nesting materials, the can cause extensive damage to your attic by ripping insulation out of the walls and chewing electrical wires which create a severe fire hazard.
- Noise– When squirrels move into your attic, they cause a great deal of noise scurrying around to find what they need. You don’t want to get woken up every night because of the scratching, clawing, ripping, and gnawing noises they make.
