Ohio Squirrel Activity: Winter Attic Issues
Squirrels remain active during all four seasons. This is unfortunate for homeowners, as you may be housing one or more of them at some point. Squirrels usually take shelter in peoples’ attics, but they can invade your home as well.
The attic is a wonderful location for housing squirrels. They are looking for a place to reproduce, which requires a good amount of space and protection from the elements. There may even be a source of food and water nearby if your visiting squirrels pick the right area. They are definitely pesky, but you are not alone. Buckeye Wildlife Solutions is on the clock and ready to fend off invading wildlife at the touch of a button.
How Do Squirrels Get Inside My Home and Attic?
Squirrels are capable of fitting into tight spaces anywhere around the perimeter of your home. They are climbing creatures, so they will use tree branches, telephone wires, and other structures in order to gain entry to your attic. Once they reach your roof, they will make use of window cracks, holes in walls, and vents to find their way inside.
One of the regular procedures that precede squirrel removal is determining how they got in to begin with. It is of little use to remove squirrels if you aren’t going to make it harder for them to enter in the future. A professional wildlife removal service, such as ours, will survey your property and diagram the areas which are susceptible to wildlife invasion.
How Do I Get Rid of Squirrels?
You will definitely need to get rid of any invading squirrels in your attic immediately. They may not strike you as being capable of serious damage, but they are. Squirrels can be harmful to both you and your property. They can tear up insulation, vents, and cause damage in hard-to-reach places. Luckily for you, Buckeye Wildlife Solutions has squirrel removal down to a science.
Squirrel removal is usually done by way of trapping. There are over-the-counter baits and traps available to just about anyone. They can usually be found at your local hardware store (Ace, Home Depot, Lowes). These methods are generally ineffective due to intentionally poor build quality and a lack of basis in wildlife biology. What better way to keep selling than to make stuff that barely works and keeps you coming back, right?
A true wildlife removal service will constitute rigorous examination of the situation and a customized removal plan. Only those with the necessary background and knowledge of squirrel behaviors and tendencies will be able to handle each squirrel problem thrown their way.
