For some people, squirrels are just furry, harmless critters occasionally seen scurrying around the trees; but for others, they can be a source of frustration and costly home repair bills if not addressed in a timely manner. Once inside your home, squirrels are able to hide in hard-to-reach places, making it nearly impossible for the DIY homeowner to remove them on their own. Fortunately, the squirrel removal experts at Critter Control® of Gainesville are here to help.
Types of Squirrel Damage
When they’re looking for shelter, squirrels love nesting in attics, and their small size makes them able to get in through even the smallest hole in a wall or roofing structure, where they can then wreak havoc on your house.
Squirrels have a tendency to chew on nearly everything in sight, including important wooden roof structures, attic insulation, and even electrical wiring – which poses a serious fire hazard. Insulation is also torn up and used as nesting material, ruining its efficiency and causing your energy costs to increase.
