I am not talking about Uncle Joe who has too much eggnog and laughs obnoxiously… I’m talking about the furry and wild variety…squirrels. You may be noticing noises above your head that sounds like scurrying and scratching. You may also hear such noises in the walls. These noises are most likely squirrels in the attic and you will definitely need squirrel removal services.
Now that the weather is cold, these critters are scrambling to get out of the cold and into your warm, cozy home. They will do anything they can to get in and their jaws are extremely powerful! They can gnaw through the toughest of plastics and wood with ease.
The first thing you should do is call a wildlife professional at Summit Environmental Solutions at 703-520-5868 right away! What our wildlife professional will do is find entry points around the home. I cannot stress the importance of calling a pro to prevent serious harm and injury. Squirrels can cause significant damage to your house in places that are very difficult to reach, meaning lengthy and costly repairs. Further, they can transmit quite a few diseases, so an encounter with a frightened and trapped wild animal in your home could spell disaster for you and your loved ones. That’s why it’s important you not only call a professional to get rid of squirrels in the attic but also how to keep squirrels out of attic spaces.
The last thing you want for Christmas is a fluffy squirrel running across the dinner table or find one napping in the Christmas tree. So, when you begin to hear noises or see evidence of squirrels, baby squirrels, any species of squirrel, call immediately for squirrel control. Summit is a humane choice for animal control because we will not separate the mother and her babies and will use live trapping versus a squirrel trap.
