Squirrels belong outdoors in the wild, not in your attic!
Squirrels inhabit homes most frequently in Central Connecticut during the fall, winter, and spring. Squirrels are often heard making noises in attics usually just before or at sunrise and sunset, and occasionally they will continue during the day hours as well. In the spring they are nesting and breeding, this is when squirrels are most active and cause like to cause the most damage. Once you have a squirrel infestation, they enjoy wreaking havoc in your attic, they will chew through shingles, air conditioning duct work and damaging beams. When these activities take place, squirrel control is absolutely necessary. Squirrels often cause electrical fires when they chew through wires.
Squirrels will leave droppings and urinate in your insulation which can cause extensive damage to your home’s fascia boards, soffits and vents. If you hear scratching and running in your attic around morning and dusk, call our squirrel control experts at D&D Wildlife Control in Connecticut. This is likely a sign of a squirrel infestation as they are most active during these times.
Although very pesky critters, squirrels are among the cleaner rodents. They will set up their own latrines where they'll urinate and defecate. Unfortunately, their latrine is your attic insulation. Squirrels are also the least invasive of the rodents, and typically stay away from man-made structures until the population becomes too large and uncontrolled. As squirrels are extremely territorial, it is very important to ensure impossibility of re-entry into your home in order to prevent the infestation from manifesting itself once again. The easiest point of entry on every home or commercial building is the roof, squirrels frequently jump from branches up to 10 feet from trees onto the roof where they will climb through small openings under the eaves.
