Squirrel Damage: Squirrels in Attics, Squirrel Burrowing and Squirrels in Trees


Three common complaints associated with squirrels are their tendency to cause damage in attics, damage to landscaping, and damage to forests and orchards. Tree squirrels do the most damage in attics, including destroying attic insulation, chewing through wires and chewing holes on the exterior of the home in order to gain entry. Once in the attic, squirrels will build nests for their litters. Several types of squirrels can cause damage to landscaping as they burrow in yards and dig up food, like nuts and freshly planted seeds. Squirrels will also steal food right out of your bird feeders! Squirrels are also known to chew on the bark, nuts and fruit of trees, which can significantly interfere with the reseeding process.


No matter what type of squirrel damage you are experiencing, Critter Control can help develop effective solutions for squirrel removal. We can also repair squirrel damage within your home or attic. Contact us today for more information on squirrel damage and how to get rid of squirrels.

How To Handle Squirrels: Squirrel Precautions and Public Health


As cute as they may be, one major squirrel problem is that squirrels often carry diseases and parasites, so it is important to handle squirrels with proper care. Some squirrels carry fleas and ticks, so try to keep your pets away from them in order to prevent the transfer of parasites. Ground squirrels have also been known to carry the plague and should only be handled with protective gear.


The best solution for handling squirrels is to call a Critter Control professional to assist with your squirrel problem. Critter Control squirrel removal can ensure the safety of your family, pets and the squirrels themselves through our squirrel control services.
