Squirrel Infestation

Do you have squirrels in your home or attic? You’re not alone. These animals often seek out residences or office buildings for shelter and nest-building. They often set up house by destroying your insulation to create a nest, and then begin procreating in the comfort of their new home.

Squirrel Damage

Squirrels, like other rodents, have continually growing teeth which make them want to chew incessantly. This causes damage to your wiring, insulation, siding, piping, vents, and other structures and building materials. In addition to this costly destruction, by tearing through your insulation, squirrels are also responsible for higher utility bills.

Their aggressive gnawing can lead to structural damage that leaves your home more susceptible to fire, flooding, and additional structural problems. As with all wildlife, rabies, insects, and parasites are another concern you must consider when these unwanted pests invade. In short, a squirrel infestation presents several dangerous and costly hazards.

Removing Squirrels From Your Home

Removing squirrels from your home requires great care because Massachusetts law protects animals that don’t pose an immediate threat or damage to your residence. It’s also unlawful to trap a wild animal and release it on other private or public property.

The most efficient way to deal with a squirrel infestation is to turn to a professional problem animal control (PAC) agent who is knowledgeable of the applicable state laws and experienced in dealing with problem wildlife animals.
