As rodents, squirrels are constantly looking for food and produce many offspring – two litters per year (spring and late summer), with an average of 5-6 per litter. This activity can result in significant damage to buildings and major headaches for business and home owners.
FACT: Squirrels must constantly chew in order to keep their incisors from growing too long. Multiply the problem times five babies (pups), and you have a major building damage problem and fire hazard.
FACT: If the squirrels leave the nest for an extended period, these ticks and fleas will look for new hosts (i.e. people and pets).
FACT: Squirrels are very swift and can move or attack quickly if threatened. Although usually frightened of people, a mother squirrel can be quite aggressive if she perceives danger or is separated from her babies.
FACT: Squirrels produce an average litter of 4-6 babies twice per year, usually in the spring and late summer. Squirrels usually have 5-6 den sites in residential areas. Killing or capturing the adult likely won’t solve the problem, since the babies may still be living in the attic, chimney, walls, roof or vents.
