Lawn

Squirrels can get into your indoor gardens make a mess while eating your plants, but they can cause noticeable damage outside of your house as well. The one thing just about everyone knows about squirrels is that they scavenge for nuts and then hide their supply. They have no qualms about digging up holes in your lawn to bury what they find, which can leave your lawn dotted with holes. Squirrels will chew on bark and twigs, and they’ll do whatever it takes to get to the see inside of your bird feeder.

Attic

When you have a squirrel living in your house, it probably won’t take too long to notice. Since they’re expert climbers, squirrels can easily make their way from the trees onto your rooftop. If there is a weak spot on your roof, they may exploit it to end up in your attic. Flying squirrels are active at night, which means you’ll have to deal with the sounds they make while you’re trying to sleep.

Electrical

Just like rats and mice, squirrels like to use their teeth. They’ll chew through a wide range of materials, which is bad news if they find access to electrical wires. Squirrels can cause electrical shorts and damage wires as well as appliances.

You can keep squirrels out of your home with squirrel removal in northern Virginia, Maryland, and D.C. SES specializes in attic insulation and crawlspace encapsulation to keep pests away, and our website offers a preview of our services. Check out our website or give us a call at 1 (703) 382.2532.

For many household pests, like squirrels, attics provide an inviting place to seek refuge from natural predators and the outdoor climate. However, once cozily inside, these animals can wreak havoc on your property and even impact your family’s health. If you detect the sound of squirrels in the attic, it’s important to know what to do next.

Contact a Pest Removal Service

Squirrels often chew on wooden support beams, walls and even electrical wires, which can result in serious damage to your home. If you suspect that there may be squirrels living in your attic, your first step is to contact a rodent removal specialist right away. For your own safety, never attempt to handle a wild animal on your own.

Replace Damaged Materials

After the squirrel or squirrels have been removed from your attic, you’ll need to replace any damaged insulation, wood, and electrical wires. Fortunately, as part of SES rodent exclusion and animal waste removal services, our experienced team will help ensure a clean and rodent-free home. Besides replacing damaged insulation, we’ll use hospital-grade disinfectants to properly clean and sanitize the contaminated areas for a completely restored space.

Rodent-Proof Your Home

As territorial animals, squirrels often mark their territory, leaving behind strong pheromones that can attract other unwanted guests. To help prevent future squirrel and rodent infestations, it’s crucial that you seal off any potential entry points. At SES, our professionals will fill in susceptible areas with mesh or expandable foam to keep pests out of your attic or crawlspace for good.

If there are squirrels making themselves at home in your attic, contact the experts at Atticare to schedule a free inspection.
