Like most squirrels, flying squirrels tend to run away and hide from humans and pets. However, they are not shy about taking up residence in your attic if they can find a point of entry, especially during the winter. In 2/3 of the cases of squirrels in the attic, there is a litter of 3-5 babies. Being nimble, they are very hard to catch. Flying squirrels will tear up insulation to use in their nests, defecate, and make obnoxious noises day and night. They will chew and gnaw on wooden support beams, walls, and electric wiring. They can cause substantial damage as well disturb the peace in your home. Their nesting sites turn into toxic messes. Clean up of squirrel feces presents a big safety concern. Wearing gloves, mask and following safety practices is very important. Note that a dust mask may provide some protection against dust, molds, and insulation fibers, but does not protect against viruses.
In most cases, trapping a flying squirrel is the most effective way. Flying squirrels require different trapping and are harder to get rid of than standard squirrels. As squirrels are considered wildlife in many states, trapping them may require a special permit. Be sure to check your local trapping laws and legal requirements as they may differ from county to county. The safest method of removal is to contact a qualified professional to take care of the squirrel problem. Wildlife control specialists are trained to humanely catch and remove troublesome squirrels and flying squirrels from homes and attics.
Flying squirrels can transmit a number of diseases as well as cause a lot of damage by gnawing on wires, insulation, and wood. Another good reason to address the issue is the entryways made by squirrels allow for other wildlife and rodents to infest your home and will be even a bigger problem than you have before.
Lyme, leptospirosis, rabies, and tularemia are diseases they spread. Squirrels are also a host for parasites, like ticks, fleas, and mites which can transmit a number of diseases as well.
