Remove Those Squirrels From Your Home For Good

While squirrels are critters that usually enjoy making a home in an urban setting like Milwaukee, they tend to take up residency in neighborhoods filled with trees. They are easily recognizable creatures that homeowners see each day. While it may be a pleasant sight, witnessing squirrels running around in your backyard or on your roof may be a sign that you have a squirrel infestation on your hands. If that’s the case, professional Milwaukee squirrel control services are your best chance of avoiding costly home repairs. Keep reading to learn more about this problem.

What Happens When Squirrels Break Into An Attic 

Following the initial invasion, squirrels will continue to move into your home and take over the attic. The reason why they find the attic so appealing is because of its height, which means squirrels are away from predators and humans while still having the benefit of coziness and warmth. Squirrels have a particular affinity for chewing, which likely means any insulation or other components of the attic such as plastic, aluminum or wood will be destroyed. Another important reason why removing squirrels from your home is an urgent job is the fact that these rodents breed two times per year. The presence of babies makes it more complicated to remove them, so noticing signs of squirrels means you need to act immediately and get in touch with a squirrel removal specialist.

What To Do If Squirrels Find Their Way Into Your Home 

Squirrels are pretty smart and they typically aim to gain access into a home’s attic. They usually do this by finding or making small holes in the walls or roofline. A simple way of denying them access to the inside of your attic is to perform an inspection of your home, identify these entry points and then close them off. If the squirrels are coming in using a vent or other areas that need to stay open for usability, opt for a wire mesh. A wire mesh will allow the vent or opening to continue functioning normally while denying access to the squirrels.

Baby squirrels are born with their eyes shut and don’t leave their nest until up to 8 weeks after birth
